Fighting for Keeps
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Since her partner's death, Jodi Israel has been perfectly happy playing Q to everyone else's Bond. Electronics and machines are safer - and they are a lot easier to deal with. Unfortunately, she's stuck with TRAIT's newest recruit, an infuriating, arrogant alpha-male who plays by his own rules...and is hot enough to send electric voltage through all of Jodi's circuitry.
Finn Danby heeds his instincts, even though it's cost him his job on more than one occasion. The moment he sees Jodi's fiery hair and uncanny engineering abilities, Finn's instinct takes over...and it's all libido. Now they're working together to protect the unstable daughter of a high-profile politician - and the sparks are flying. Both in and out of the bedroom. But when all hell breaks loose, Finn must decide if he wants to fight against Jodi...or fight for her.
Jodi and Finn's story is kind of complicated. Jodi first meets him as he is a cop trying to give her a parking ticket. Finn is attracted to her right away but not sure how to approach, since she is in quite the hurry.
Finn next sees Jodi over at TRAIT - who is trying to recruit him. She will be his trainer/supervisor for his trial period. Finn is just fine having a woman be his superior. What is bothering him is he can barely restrain himself from touching her. He has the desire to kiss her all the time. The chemistry is literally killing him.
Jodi is also attracted to Finn. She has had a bad partner in the past who would never rely on a woman, so she afraid to take Finn's word that all is fine. The trust is not there yet and they are already in danger. Nothing seems to stop the sizzle between them and they finally just give in. Is it just sex? Can it be more? Is there something there between them?
Both of them have been hurt before. Both of them are scared. Meanwhile, there is a threat against Jodi's life that has jumped the track and now is after Finn also. Can they catch a killer, save the girl, and find love? I think they can. The characters are very well developed and this is the TRAIT series book # 3.

Great book with an AMAZING cover!!!
Finn Danby needs a job since he was just fired from the Chicago Police Department. As he walked out of the police department, he was approached by Josh Marron of TRAIT and offered a job. Now he's a new recruit at TRAIT and partnered with Jodi Israel. She lost her last partner, Nolan, because he refused to listen to her and wait for back up. Jody soon realizes that Finn seems to have that same attitude that Nolan had. There is one huge problem...she can't keep her eyes off the sexy recruit and the feelings are definitely mutual.
I love the relationship these two have. It's that kind of relationship that says "I'm attracted to you but I hate you at the same time." As expected, the sex between these two is off-the-charts! They make a good team in bed and out of it. Also, Izzy was quite a surprise. She gave the story that perfect little twist.
This is book 3 in the Agents of TRAIT series and it's my first book by Seleste deLaney. It won't be my last! I must go read books one and two!
