As a veteran cop, Keller Charles is not only rough around the edges, but also a bit jaded. His younger years were spent taking care of his mom after his dad left, and that hasn’t changed. In his opinion, work is synonymous with breathing, and his tactics don’t always translate well. Which is how he ended up training rookies, punishment for his surly attitude.
Emerson Malone has a mind of her own and isn’t afraid to speak it. She refuses to be a trophy wife as her parents expect of her, preferring to forge her own path despite the repercussions. But she never counted on the obstacle that is Keller standing between her and a badge.
The attraction is immediate, not to mention forbidden. She’s the untouchable princess, yet his caresses seem welcome, and he’s the grouch that won’t admit what she does to him.
Together, they’ll break all the rules.
