No two people have been more delightfully matched as I smiled and laughed through this whole book. Between the Lines is a total joy to read and I loved every moment of reading it!
Tessa Ricci works for NY’s finest. Her body is toned and fit, having come from two parents who served our country, Tessa knows the dedication and sacrifice it takes to serve. And while her parents may have found love, she is also realistic that it may never happen for her. Not many men understand her need to serve and protect and that her handcuffs are used on the job and not in the bedroom.
Justin Tibbs loves women and has never made secrets about it. Lately the variety has lost its appeal, but he can’t put his finger on to the reasons why. However, when he comes across the most beautiful, intriguing woman he’s ever met he can’t shake her from his thoughts- clean or dirty. Did I forget to mention that said woman is Tessa…a woman he happens to know, but has never caught his eye until she displayed the woman beneath the police uniform. Men…so good at compartmentalization until a beautiful woman escapes that box he has placed her in.
Justin and Tessa each give the other as good as they get, teasing and taunting, so evenly matched in their personalities. From their very first date (which had me rolling with laughter…OMG…best first date scene I think I’ve ever read) Tessa and Justin not only have chemistry, but they push one another on every level possible, something they have both wanted, but never expected in a partner.
Between the Lines is by far my favorite book in this series!!!
Justin Tibbs might be a hot, athletic, and amazing firefighter but he also has a reputation as a manwhore. Tessa Ricci worked too long and too hard to be taken seriously in the NYPD to fall victim to his charm.
Assuming he was interested, which he wasn’t.
Until he was.
And then neither of them was sure who was seducing who.
Justin Tibbs— Bailing and heading to Tessa’s apartment. If you don’t hear from me in twenty-four hours, she’s probably killed and tossed me in the Hudson. Tell everyone it was a good way to go, and I’m not even sorry. Enjoy the rest of your night, I know I sure will be.
Jared Leighton – Tibbs, do NOT screw around. She is NYPD and a friend, have you completely lost your mind?
Justin Tibbs —Sorry, brother, I need to see this through. I haven’t been this intrigued by a woman in a very long time. Worth dying over. Been nice knowing you.
Jared Leighton— Tibbs, come back to the bar before it’s too late.
Jared Leighton— Jesus Christ.
