Product description

Product Description

To serve and protect...
That's my job.
That's who I am, and what I do.
It's what I've always done.

And when she comes back to town,
She's all I want,
All I need.

But I know better.
I refuse to give into my desire.
I'll never hurt her,
Never leave her.

And my job alone threatens it all,
Threatens everything.
I have to stay away,
Otherwise, I'll break her,
Ruin her,
And destroy us.

4.0 out of 5 stars A quick read and a dramatic and angsty ‘childhood crush/best-friend’s-brother’ love story 12 June 2017

This is the first in Christine Zolendz’s Behind Blue Lines series which features characters in the police force, bringing a dramatic edge that works really well with the romance. I enjoyed this one.

Olivia Rhys is a teacher who lives in Vermont, but she is returning home to Queens deal with her alcoholic, hot mess of a mother. She walks into a disaster zone, pretty much right at the same time that her mother’s neighbour and her childhood crush, Dean, literally crashes through the door to save the day.

Dean is the oldest brother of Olivia’s childhood best friend, Brooke, and the man she has had feelings for for as long as she can remember. They grew up next door to each other, but Dean is five years older than her and never showed her any interest. And he doesn’t seem to now – even though from that first glance Olivia’s attraction for him flares back to life.

Dean Fury is a detective. His father was on the force, as is his sister. It’s all he’s ever known and he has dedicated his life to his job. But his single-minded commitment has come at the cost of his personal life, for he knows the cost that is placed on the loved ones of police officers and he refuses to put somebody in that position.

An unexpected tragedy has recently rocked his world, and while he struggles to deal with his grief, anger and bewilderment, Olivia is next door trying to do the same. In the midst of all of that emotion, the two of them are there for each other and the chemistry begins to sizzle. But with Olivia only in town for a short while, and with Dean trying to come to terms with his loss and still determined to stop anybody from getting too close to him, these two have a lot of hurdles to overcome before they can get on the same page.

I enjoyed this book. The romance is a slow burn with some angst and UST as they torture and torment each other, taking two steps forward and then one step back as they both work through their issues. There are some twists and turns to the story, with smaller plotlines woven throughout bringing some surprises and providing some added depth to the book (and I loved the cameo from Shane Maxton and the boys). But this book did feel a bit rushed for me.

The book ends with Olivia and Dean is a good place, but the story is far from over. There are story threads left undone and questions that still need to be answered, and I’d love to see some real closure for them. But with Brooke’s book up next, and some not-so-subtle hints dropped for where her story is going to go, I know they will be a part of whatever is to come and I’m looking forward to reading more.

Just finished this book and is true Christine Zolendz the book is beautifully written and has all the feels! It read quickly and had some surprises to be found and definitely had me clicking the next book in the series. There are a few missing pieces, lots of references to Liv's childhood but nothing definite as to what she experienced and why if there was a family next door, a cops family, didn't someone step in and help her? The development of her mother's character was truly brilliant is creating a really sad and selfish image that helps give an idea of what Liv's childhood may have entailed. The same missing piece is found in where Dean gets his ideas from, especially since he had solid relationships to reference. He seems to have a lot of fear of what relationships have to lead to but I wanted to know more of the why behind it.

Even with a few missing pieces I loved the book and of course the feels! Definitely falls into the slow burn catagory but totally worth the wait and I can't wait for book 2!

This book is a great start to a series I am going to look forward to reading! It's not all hearts and flowers,which is appropriate for the lives that Officers of the law lead. Bring on Brooke's story!

I want to start by saying I did not receive this book in exchange for a review. I pre-ordered and waited impatiently for it to be delivered. The story is fresh. The characters are believable. I continually felt like I was being let into two people's lives. All of her books do that. I felt the pain and confusion of the characters. I believed the story. As always, after finishing one of her books, I was invested in the life being played out in the book. I love that Shane and Brayden were in the story. I loved how she resolved the lovers. Why? Because I could believe it and found myself wondering how their life would be in later years. If you've never read Christine Zolendz, do so immediately. You will be the richer for it.
