I want to start off by letting you know that this book is part of a police SWAT series. I understand that the word police or anything to do with police can be very triggering right now. If you do want to learn more about this book and my thoughts on it then you can keep reading but if not I completely understand. Thank you to Wildfire Marketing to gifting me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Booth Pena definitely didn’t make the smartest of decisions when he was a teenager.

At eighteen, he knocked a girl up and signed up for the military all in the same day—signing his life away in more ways than one. Fast forward six weeks and he’s in bootcamp learning that he’s going to be a father while also learning that not only is he going to be deployed, but it’s going to stay that way for a year.

There weren’t a lot of things that the baby’s mother and he saw eye to eye on after that. He honestly wasn’t sure why he even slept with her in the first place.

Okay, that last part is a lie. He knows exactly why he slept with her. Because the real woman he’s in love with, her twin sister, Dillan, won’t give him the time of day.

Five years later, and he still wants her.

Now he’s home for good, being the best father and police officer that he can be, and still he’s not good enough.


Dillan Davidsdottir hated Booth Pena. Immensely.

She hated him because he slept with her sister, then left. Granted, she knew that he hadn’t meant to leave like he did, unknowingly and unconsciously leaving his son behind, but that didn’t change the fact that he had.

Five years later, and she still dislikes him just as much now as she did when he chose the wrong sister to take to his bed.

Maybe if he’d chosen her, her heart wouldn’t be broken, and his wouldn’t be untouchable.

But when a SWAT officer sees his life flash before his eyes, and decides that enough is enough, what’s a girl to do?

Give in, that’s what.

I feel like the synopsis of this book is a bit misleading.  Yes, everything in the synopsis is true but also at the same time that whole drama of them getting together or not is very easily resolved early in the story. It then turns into a different story where someone in their lives as been behind the scenes doing bad things and manipulating situations. I was interested in this book for the drama of the forbidden romance but it turns out it’s not all that forbidden. Also, this book has a few complete gross out scenes involving throw up and different things that come up with babies and I just don’t understand why they were in here. This book also includes a randomly thrown in how to do a**l scene that again was not necessary to go that in depth. Overall, if you are already a fan of this author or a hardcore lover of romance than I think that you might enjoy this story. If you are just a causal romance reader then I would avoid this book because it is not for you.
