Review - Bad Cop

A woman jaded against dirty cops...To Alice, Ian is just another bad cop as detestable as the one who destroyed her family. Regardless of her attraction to the charming man, she has no respect for the way the vampire threatens his way into her agency’s murder case and no trust in him when it’s obvious he’s hiding something.

A cop who tosses the rule books to get his way…Ian doesn't care for Alice’s judgmental opinions on the way he goes about obtaining justice. They are polar opposites, and her humanity makes her off-limits, but that does nothing to weaken his overwhelming desire for her.

A truth that could tear their new love to shreds…When the new case raises the ghosts of an old case Ian believed long dead and buried, his law-bending ways and the secret that haunts him could end with his execution. The second Alice becomes a target, his heart that he’d thought murdered along with his maker flares into blinding existence. But following the law for her sake could end with a devastating repeat of his past.

My review:

They are a contradiction, while both want justice they have different ways of achieving it.   How they will ever work together is a mystery, but they are forced to come together to solve a case.  Can they both overcome their histories to form a new future?  That is what we are reading to really find out and the story is compelling enough with fantastic character to keep us going.

Alice is tricked into accepting a new position.  While its a good move for all involved she isnt given much of a chance to say anything but yes.  Thinking she will have time to adjust, she is immediately thrown into a case.  A case where she ends up running into Ian.  Ian has his own interests in the case and after some fun sparring they come to an agreement to work together.

The story is well paced and the characters are interesting and work in the story.  They are interesting and worth finding out more about them and how they came to be where they are.  They are complete opposites and their sparring while trying to work together is not only fun to read but helps in the character and story development.

I really enjoyed this and the first in the series and am looking forward to more to come.
