Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Funny, heartfelt, super steamy, and very well written. Arrogant Officer is a cover to cover read in one sitting!

The first meet cute between Bree and Dax is snort-worthy cute. The second encounter between the hot officer and brainy teacher is giggly funny and a bit steamy. They continue to run into each other and each meeting is down right adorable which only seems to up their chemical attraction to one another. Finally deciding to take fate out of the equation, they go on a date and yes, they do have all the right components to make a hot fire…whew, these two are extra steamy.

What I loved even more than their sensual moments (gah, I can’t believe I even said that sentence) is their time spent with Dax’s family. He has four sisters and a very loving mother, plus a large extended family and it’s something that Bree has never been a part of. He is close and protective of his family and every moment on the page with them is pure gold.

Dax feels the need to protect the entire world around him and spending time with Dax will open eyes to see a side of an officer’s job that perhaps many people won’t necessarily think about. I loved that aspect about this book.

Bree’s life teaching at an expensive prep school isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Rich kids are just as zoned out as any other kid and teaching any child is one of the hardest jobs out there no matter what age that student is. I love that both Bree and Dax are in service jobs and have a love of giving back deeply ingrained in their blood.

This whole book is amazingly written and full of so much heart, it’s crazy that this series just gets better and better, but Arrogant Officer is just that good and I highly recommend it.



It all started when I got an email.

Let me rephrase. A sextortion email from someone claiming they tapped into my computer and recorded me while watching an adult graphic video. If I don’t send them money, they’ll show everyone in my contact list.

As a chemistry teacher at a private school, I panicked. Not only do I love my job, I need it. Desperate and afraid, I run to the police station and ask an officer for help.

A very gorgeous, very arrogant officer, Dax Harder.

Dax is a mixture of a fearless warrior and an undisciplined child. After he proves to me that it’s a spam email and they didn’t actually hack in to my computer, he uses the incident to tease me. I leave the police station in a huff hoping to never see Dax again.

Fate has other ideas.

Everywhere I go, I run into Officer Harder. Our tension turns into more and soon we’re embarking on a fiery and bold romance. The more time I spend with him, I learn there’s a dark past that lingers behind the eyes of the closely guarded cop.

And whatever it is, it’s enough for him to push me away.

Coming March 21st! Bold, ambitious, exciting. Get ready for the ride of your life as you fall for an ARIES.
