I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Second book of three finished.
So much meh. The premise was a stretch (could a New York police commissioner really send one of his men to unofficially work undercover and act as a bodyguard in Connecticut?), but at least this time it took longer for the hero and heroine to jump into bed, and there was no rapey sex. I felt the suspense aspects shortchanged the romance, though.
Now for the final book, which has dueling reporters, one of whom is named "Thorpe."
