New York's Finest #1
Lauren Layne
Releasing July 28th,2015
Forever Romance

After a photograph of Luc Moretti saving a tourist hits social media, he instantly becomes New York's most famous and beloved cop. When a major network decides to run a special on the "American Hero," Luc's boss gives him no choice but to cooperate in the name of good exposure for the department. Luc doesn't mind the celebrity status-what he does mind is the gorgeous brunette journalist who's been assigned to follow his every move. Especially since she also happens to be the same knockout that rejected him rather publicly the week before.

Ava Sims is a woman who gets what she wants. And what she wants is to be CBC's lead anchor-but to get there, she'll need to nail the fluff piece on the playboy cop. Luc Moretti is everything Ava knows to stay away from: a stubborn charmer with a hero-complex. But the more Ava gets to know Luc and his oddball family, the more she realizes that beneath the swagger and the blue uniform is a complex man who makes her heart beat too fast. Soon, Ava's doing the unthinkable, and falling for the best of New York's finest ...

This book is one I'm on the fence with how I feel about it. I love Luc and his family; they're loud, boisterous and have the ability to irritate each other, but you can also feel the love they all have for one another. So that is a win for me. 

However, I really didn't care for Ava; don't get me wrong, I'm all about cheering for a strong, independent female character, but she seemed to have a Prima Donna thing going on, just a hair shy from being all-out bitchy. She's got animosity toward Luc from an incident that happened three years prior; she deserved the ticket she got, but of course she doesn't see it like that. So now that Luc is in the news for his heroic actions, Ava wants to get the real information on Luc and is doing what she can to bring everything to light. Even after learning about her life and family, I can see why she is the way she is, but I still didn't like it. To me, it seemed like Ava was gunning for Luc in a negative way for....I honestly don't know. And just when I thought she couldn't get any worse, she went and proved me wrong.

This is a book where I would have a liked a different HEA for Luc, because clearly Ava is nothing but a vindictive bitch. Sorry, but that's just how I feel about her.
