Regan Taylor is already heading toward a date she’d rather not entertain. She thinks her night can’t get any worse, until blue lights illuminate the night behind her, and the strong, commanding voice at her window strikes a nerve she didn’t know was there.
Officer Alex Shaw is amused when the innocent brown-eyed woman staring up at him starts to argue at his accusations; she awakens a part of him that he has kept locked away. Despite his haunting past, pieces of his dominant side peek out, and he lets her go with a warning not to speed through his zone again.
When sparks fly between them, Regan sets out on a mission of self-discovery, but soon finds out the intense desire Alex brings out in her, leaves him cold. Can Alex overcome his past and act on his dark desires with her, or is it too late?
“What kind of girl are you, Regan?” His jaw tightened, and he cocked his brow.
“What kind of question is that…” She eyed the name on his shirt, “Officer Shaw? Seems a bit…unprofessional.”
Wow…if you’ve ever had a Hot Cop fantasy, then this is the book for you! It opens with Regan being bludgeoned into a double date with her supposed best friend, Kate. She’s not exactly enthusiastic to go on another date with Jeremy, and after dragging her heels getting ready has to race to get to the movie on time.
She trailed her eyes along his well-defined jaw to his soft, full lips and then back to his steady green gaze. She swallowed hard. His face was nothing like baby-face Jeremy’s – nope.
She was staring at a man.
It’s instant attraction on both sides.
The way she looked at him had his heart pounding. Her brown eyes were wide, almost pleading, as she looked up at him. Looking down at her from this angle, he could easily picture her on her knees staring up at him. Begging. Waiting for his command.
After telling Alex that she didn’t even want to go on this date, he’s intrigued and he lets her off a ticket. Catching her later in a parking lot, with Kate and the two dates, he takes action.
Breathing used to be so simple, and yet she couldn’t even manage to inhale. He was intimidating and intoxicating at the same time. Her body trembled as she looked up as his six-foot frame and stared into his eyes. Chewing on her bottom lip, she nodded.
“Good, because watching you squirm in his arms makes me want to break my flashlight off in his ass.”
Feeling reckless and in need of something she can’t even put words to, Regan deliberately speeds through Alex’s patrol section again.
“I think, like me, you’re searching for…something. If I’m wrong, walk past me and leave now. But if I’m right,” he lifted her chin bringing her eyes up to meet his, “turn around and put your hands against the wall.”
The sex was yowza-scorching. My Kindle felt singed at the edges. And that’s where it could have stopped. Girl has fantasy-sex-with-hot-cop, but TC Lee had other ideas. Very good ideas 🙂
He grabbed her upper arms and pulled her to her feet. He was in deep shit if she played him. “This is why you ran off that night!”
“What?” Regan’s chest caved. He honestly thought she had something to do with this.
“You f*cked me while your boyfriend killed someone? Or did you do it with him?” Alex’s anger unravelled and Mr. Nice Guy left the building.
Both Regan and Alex were well fleshed out as characters. They both had issues and feelings, and while admitting their sexual encounters were off the scale in terms of passion, neither quite understood the other’s motivation. It took some to-ing and fro-ing, and an exciting sub-plot before they finally opened up to each other.
TC Lee has a good writing style, with flashes of humour. I liked Regan. She had balls 🙂
“Do you know what the penalty is for assaulting an officer?” His jaw ticked as he held her arm in midair where he stopped it.
“What’s the penalty for assaulting an asshole, because that’s who I was aiming for?”
Assume The Position is a quick, super-hot read. If you ever watched ChiPs as a girl and lusted even slightly after Erik Estrada, you will love this book 🙂
