Anna Leyton is a police officer attached to Interpol.  Her life is finally back on track after an incident which saw her career hang in the balance and her relationship end. However, a chance meeting whilst getting into a cab is about to change Anna’s life. The charismatic professional boxer Freddie La Salle has swept Anna off her feet. However, there’s a slight problem – Freddie, the sexy French man is a suspect in a case that Anna is investigating and he doesn’t know she is a police officer. Can Anna maintain her professional integrity and protect her heart? Or, is love clouding her judgment? Anna must take many risks to find out the truth about Freddie. But, will the truth destroy what they have? Both have secrets and neither one can find the courage to reveal the truth.

I enjoyed this book. I thought the back story was excellent and the spicy love scenes in the book added a bit of ooh la la to this romance and left me very hot under the collar. Sometimes the dialogue was a bit soppy but hey Freddie is French and they say no one does romance like the French! The story has a few unexpected plot twists which I loved and really didn’t see coming. But be warned, you will need something to fan yourself with as Freddie is hot hot hot!
