This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The only thing better than a man in uniform is a man out of uniform. Sasha has never been more certain of anything in her life, and she’s never wanted anyone more than she wants Officer Henry Dryden. Tall, tough and battle-scarred, he’s the first man to capture not just her eye, but her heart. With curves and the confidence to use them, it’s not hard to attract his attention, or get him to break out those cuffs and keys. But for the first time, getting exactly what she wants feels dangerously like risking it all.
There’s no question about the one thing Henry wants most when it comes to Sasha: to protect her. After their coastal North Carolina community is sent a message via the brutal murder of the prison warden, no one is safe. Henry can’t afford to be distracted by things like the all-consuming desire Sasha inspires. There’ll be time for that later … if he can keep her from getting caught in the crossfire of a killer’s revenge scheme. Haunted by the ghosts of his past, he’ll do anything to avoid being the only one to walk out of a war zone alive again. The way forward is clear: stop the convict who’s hunting officers in Riley County, and keep Sasha safe … or die trying.
Book 2 in the Lock and Key Series.

Though this can be read as a stand alone book, this story picks back up where Officer Next Door (Lock and Key Book 1) left off. The relationship Sasha and Henry started in book 1 begins to develops into someone more. I loved seeing how helpless Sasha and Henry where to their attraction to one another. Unfortunately it is still a dangerous time for everyone with the prisoner who hasn't been captured yet on the loose. Because of this, Henry comes to see how protective he feels towards Sasha and knows he is willing to die for her. He isn't without his own inner demons though. Sasha however proves despite the danger and risks she is willing to stand by his side through it all. I thought the paranormal aspects of the story worked a bit better here than they did in the previous book but it might be due to me knowing what to expect. Either way this book definitely had it's thrilling moments and I cannot wait for Kerry and Grey's book!
