From the author of the Firefighters of Station Five novels...

Sugarland loves their men in blue, especially Detective Shane Ford. But Shane’s mission to protect and to serve has just gotten personal....

Detective Shane Ford, Sugarland’s favorite cop, has been blindsided by the sudden death of his best friend, NFL star Brad Cooper, and by becoming the legal guardian of Brad’s son, Drew—a bitter, angry sixteen-year-old with a dangerous secret. Shane is determined to pry the truth from Drew, but he manages only to alienate him—and winds up going head-to-head with Juvenile Officer Daisy Callahan, whose job is to protect the teen’s best interests.

Shane has always been drawn to Daisy’s beauty and strength, but he’s determined not to allow their intense attraction to interfere with his duty ever again. It’s a vow that will prove difficult to keep, as the realities of Shane and Daisy’s blossoming love and their growing bond with the grieving teen propel Shane headlong into danger for the new family he has sworn to protect.

This book was pretty much about real life and the tragedies that have been happening a lot lately in America. It has to do with drug use and what happens when you use them and what it could do to you. Plus it shows you what happens when you use drugs and who you will leave behind if they do kill you. 

This book is about a cop named Shane. He is a very handsome man that every woman wants in their life. But there is this one lady that Shane can't get off his mind. Her name is Daisy and she works in the same field with him but deals with taking care of Children when tragic hits home. Shane is a single bachelor living his life with no kids until all of a sudden in the blink of an eye his life changes. He finds himself raising a sixteen year old boy that is like his son after the boys father ends up overdosing on drugs. Drew the boys father was this famous NFL player that Shane thought was a clean cut guy that never did drugs or got into trouble. But that was about to change when he finds out how he died and what he died of. After finding out about his best friend dying he doesn't know how he is going to raise a teenager by himself. Some of the things that he hears from Drew about sex. He can't believe what he is hearing. Drew ends up meeting this boy at school and starts hanging out with him and finds himself getting into situations that gets him in trouble. He ends up getting arrested and finds himself doing community service for a guy that his friends father really hates. But we find out later in the story why he hates him. But I don't want to tell you because it will give the whole story away. In the story Drew finally tells Daisy how he feels about her but she can't give her heart to him again because when she did she ended up getting a broken heart and she doesn't want to pick up the pieces again. I know what she is talking about because I have been through a lot of those. Drew finally comes to Shane about his fathers death and starts putting the pieces together with things happening at school and with Drew's new friend. 

I don't want to give to much away in this story because it's like a mystery that you have to piece together for yourself. So if you like romance, action and mysteries then you will love this book. I highly recommend it.. I have never read a book by this author but I would really read another one by her in this series. They are very juicy....
