    • Grace, a Sherrif s Deputy, is a confident woman, seemingly fearless and comfortable in her role Being shot at a call out changes her, makes her scared, unsure She has to work through her fears and the new Chaplain, Amya, appears calm and sympathetic but ultimately unsuitable for the role of counsellor A flicker of attraction between them means Grace will have to find another way through her problems It would be a professional no no to counsel a romantic interest.The relationship between Grace an [...]


    • Another brilliant book by AJ that I had the pleasure of reading chapter by chapter before it was published I haven t read this version, though a few changes were made , so I m super excited to read the final product When I read the first version, I was on the edge of my seat the entire way Grace and Amya are such brilliant characters I kept finding a little of myself in each one I love how realistic AJ s books are Most writers over dramatize things, while AJ shows day by day trials that cops and [...]


    • Leaves you hangingLeaves you hangingLiterally leaves you hanging, along with the main character Some typos and missing words, but not enough to detract from the reading of the story I d like to read about the main character s personal life she doesn t really have one despite having a secret gf and less about the police work, except for the curious conundrum of cops getting shot Will look forward to the next installment.


    • I loved it My favorite part about the book is the characters Of course, I adore Grace herself she s someone I d like to know in real life But I m also drawn in by the people in her life She s surrounded by fascinating individuals If you just want to spend an afternoon losing track of everything else, this is the book to do it with There s suspense, humor, and even a little hint of romance though it s not at all a love story, really something for everyone.


    • The books is about a female cop, Grace, which I understood going in I expected some cop work along with a side of romance While I enjoyed the characters and their little imperfections and the realistic feel of them, I felt like emotions were missing from their actions The actions, movements and descriptions were there but the feelings and reasons were left off a lot of times making it hard to fully connect and feel for the main characters.I felt like although it was a cop book, there was too muc [...]


    • 3 star review by RobertaThe blurb intrigued me when I saw it and couldn t wait to read it I m not really sure how I feel about this book There were so many things that felt off to me, I m still not sure what really happens.Grace is an interesting character She is a cop who loves her job and does it because she wants to help people Help and protect them I find that trait very admirable Grace isn t out as a lesbian officer She hasn t really dated anyone in awhile and that has also helped keep her [...]


    • NOTE This is a Police procedural and not a romance Grace is a female police officer whose past hasn t always been the best She has many friends on the force and isn t out She meets Amya the new chaplain and her life personal life changes Will this affect t her job For me, the story starts out a bit slow as each chapter is basically a day by day accounting of her day at work Sometimes minute by minute, move by move I felt the description was a bit too much at times Now having said that This is a [...]


    • Ok, wtf did I just read Pages and pages full of police things, from writing tickets to car chases and shoot outs Oh, and somewhere along the line a cop and a chaplain hook up.Also, appearing three times in the book, some religious nut shows up and chapters upon chapters we re treated with quotes from scripture What The blurb isn t correct at all, I was expecting something about PSTD after a traumatic event None of it there,, though, she just gets back to work, treating us with descriptions of m [...]


    • Engaging It s a cop story that happens to have a love story that happens to be with another woman Oh, did I forget to mention this awesome cop just happens too be a woman Really Is their anything sexier than a strong, confident women who happens to be in uniform This is a depiction of a capable woman who stands up for herself and others A woman who is a wonderful example of coworker, friend and human in general We should all hope to share some of her attributes, but she is also flawed which make [...]


    • Good bookBook is set up as a series of events in a police officer s life Story flows well and kept me involved in the story Grace is your normal police officer and not some super cop without flaws and weaknesses Was surprised by the way the story ends and I definitely look forward to a sequel Overall good read.


    • So, this book I was asked to read last year by the publisher, and so when I read it it was not available on to track For that reason, I am marking it as read now, and keeping my review of it to myself, as it has already been shared.
