He just might be her savior...or her downfall.
NYPD Detective Gray Yates has major trust issues. Protecting a serenely beautiful woman hiding enough secrets to take down an entire city wasn’t something he bargained for. She’s a loving single mother, hot as hell, and protecting her will test every ounce of his resolve.
Alex Romano is being blackmailed by the Pyramid—an elusive international organization of assassins every cop in the world is after. When Alex tries severing ties with them they refuse to let her go. The darkly dangerous detective she’s irresistibly drawn to is her only hope of staying out of jail. He just might be her savior...or her downfall.
Despite efforts to maintain his professionalism, Gray can’t deny the fiery passion Alex ignites in him. In an explosive confrontation, Alex’s lies are revealed and Gray is faced with the most important decision of his life: trust the woman he’s falling in love with, or arrest her.

Thrilling Romantic Suspense!
If it’s at all possible I loved this new suspenseful cop romance even better than the first one in the series, but I think it was helpful to read these books in order because of secondary characters in this story. Alex, a woman with a battered past and raising a sick child on her own, lies on her application for a job with the NYPD to avoid problems from her past creeping up on her. While on the job she and a detective by the name of Gray, a war torn soldier, develop a common interest in each other which ends up getting tangled with the lies from both of them about their pasts. How they got through the lies and the trouble caused by them made for a chilling tale…with a scorching romance thrown in for good measure. Once started, I couldn’t put this book down until The End!
What an excellent story! Two tormented hearts afraid to start again because of their pasts. Can Gray or Alex let go of the past and open themselves up enough to trust each other and move into the future? You'll have to read BLOOD MONEY which is an emotional romantic suspense novel to find out. I was glued to my e-reader until the end! This is the first Tee O'Fallon story I've read, and although it's the 2nd book in the NYPD Blue & Gold Series, each book can be read as a stand alone. However I'm looking forward to reading Book 1 (and HOPING for a 3rd). Due to sexual and adult language and situations this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via Tasty Book Tours through NetGalley in exchange for an honest blog tour review.

~ It was like he’d been bushwhacked by Cupid.
~ The second he’d looked into her watery eyes, he’d been defenseless. They had been like a shifting, Caribbean-blue tidewater of emotions that spoke directly to his heart.
Excellent!! This one had just the right blend of romance, suspense, and mystery. Add in intriguing characters and an excellent storyline to come up with this absolute must read.
