One explosive encounter brought them together.
One infatuation led to a love like no other.
One secret tore them apart.
As head of the NYPD Organized Crime Control Bureau in Manhattan, Chief
Detective Mason Cole walks in the line of fire every day. Between dodging bullets
and braiding his daughter’s hair, Mason is tormented with haunting memories
that refuse to relinquish control over him, no matter how hard he tries. After a
bust gone wrong, he’s thrown for a loop by a woman who will fill his life with
more chaos than ever before.
Lindsey Jenkins is a self-made woman. Bold and independent, she lives
unapologetically in a life of deception. That is until her facade is threatened by a
force stronger than anything she’s ever felt before—love.
Leaving their hearts unguarded could lead to destruction. Even worse, it could
expose them both to a war they never saw coming.
In a city coerced by corruption and treachery, what happens when your greatest
passion becomes your biggest weakness?

A light, calloused touch scorches up my side, waking me from sleep. Goose
bumps rise from the touch of fingertips and just as I’m about to scramble away,
his signature scent hits me with a force of desire and I instantly calm. My
shoulders fall and I relax my body back into the hot wall of pure muscle plastered
behind me. Feathery kisses trail over my shoulder blade and I quiver at the
tingling sensation freezing my body in place. His whiskered jaw prickles my skin,
along my shoulder all the way up to my neck. It heightens my senses as lust
shoots through my core, and I clutch my pillow, fighting the fire in my belly. I
yearn to yank him over me and drive his cock right into me as far as it can go. His
hand slides from my waist to my ass and as he squeezes firmly and I can’t help
the moan from slipping past my lips. My own sounds of desire echoes through the
room much louder than intended, and as soon as it’s left my mouth, Mason
spreads his hand over my ass cheek and hip, clutching tightly, and with a quick
jerk, he pulls me backwards pressing his jean-clad cock into my ass, rubbing his
hardness against me.
“Fuck,” he whispers near my ear, his voice breaking. His head leans on my
shoulder and I reach back, gliding my shaky hand up his thick firm thigh, over his
ass and bringing it up behind me to his head. Pulling at his hair, I angle my head
and bring his up closer to mine. We’re nose to nose, body against body, and
breathing so rapidly it’s like we’ve both just run a marathon.
“We shouldn’t do this.” I whisper, staring into his lust-filled eyes. We both know
we shouldn’t. I can’t do it, not now. He wants too much, I don’t want enough. It’s
too risky, too dangerous. What if one night ruins it all? What if after, my body
and my heart want more? If once isn’t enough, denying him again will be so much
harder. His job, my job, if our worlds collide, it’ll be one fucked-up mess we’ll
He shakes his head and rolls swiftly over on top of me, pushing me on my back.
“Didn’t plan this when I came in here, Linds. But I sure as fuck don’t want to stop
now, not now that I know you want it too.” His lips crash to mine, his tongue
searching for an opening. My lips part and his tongue slips inside, caressing my
own in one powerful kiss, so gentle and long, so passionate. Pulling him closer, he
deepens the connection and his hand trails down, fingering the edge of my
“Stop.” I break the moment, panting heavily. “I can’t give you what you want,
His eyes reach into mine and my heart pumps harder. He wants the unattainable.
He scoops the side of my face in his hand, brushing his thumb back and forth.
The movement is so intimately sweet that my fingers twitch to cover my own
hand with his. He makes resisting him so much harder by simply being him. “You
can come up with whatever excuse you want, Lindsey. But that’s all they are,
excuses. You’ll run out of them at some stage, and I’ll be here waiting when you
I can’t speak. My lips seal shut. Mason rolls off me, enveloping me in his arms as
Spooning me in my bed, I ignore everything else. I shut off my mind, shut out the
world. Closing my eyes, I sink into nirvana, hoping to avoid this inconceivable
feeling tearing me in two. I’m conflicted by the comfort of his arms: I’ve never felt
so safe, yet stripped bare, all at the same time.
