Book Review - Steal Me by Lauren Layne

ABOUT THE BOOK


IN HOT PURSUIT

Being a cop might be in Anthony Moretti's blood, but protecting and serving the city of New York has always been more than just the family business. If that means his love life stays locked up, well then that's just another sacrifice made in the line of duty. That is, until he sets eyes on the gorgeous new waitress at The Darby Diner and suddenly Anthony's morning coffee is leaving him a whole lot more hot and bothered than usual. 



Though waitressing at The Darby isn't exactly Maggie Walker's dream job, it pays the bills and gives her time to work on her novel. Now if only she could stop fantasizing about gorgeous Anthony Moretti every time he sits down at her table, she'd really be in great shape. But when he needs her help identifying a criminal threatening The Darby-and Maggie recognizes her ex-husband-she fears her fresh start might be a pipe dream. Faster than a New York minute, Maggie and Anthony find themselves in one perilous pursuit that only gets hotter with each and every rule-breaking kiss.

REVIEW

This is a well-written story with interesting and easily relatable characters, and the Layne style of sexy witty romance is present throughout.  Maggie is a easy to relate with character.  Anthony is a sexy yet cranky cop, but is still easy to love.  The story isn't particularly complex, but the story is still interesting and not the typical 'cop meets a waitress and they fall in love' story.

Recommended for anyone who likes a light romance with smart characters.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
