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 ...


To be honest, I was skeptical when I read the blurb of the book. It wasn't exactly what I'd go for but this author has been in my radar for months already because of the praises for her previous books. So I took the risk and asked for an ARC.

I don't regret it at all.

Or maybe I did regret one thing: Why did it take me this long to read a book by Lauren Layne?

There was never a dull moment in this book thanks to the banter and sexual chemistry of both main characters.

Luca and Ana were explosive right from the moment they met. It was as if two headstrong personalities clashed. I loved each smart-ass remark and inside joke that they threw at each other.

With Ava, I admit that I didn't like her at first. I never thought that journalism can be this heartless. She later on grew on me as I got to understand her character and get to know the Ava behind the high heels and pantsuits.

Luc was okay. I'm not saying that he's an awful character or anything but I kinda paid more attention to his brothers and got too busy fantasizing about their stories. Hihi.

Did I say I love characters' wits? I really loved how close and hilarious Luc's family was, especially his interfering Nonna.

All in all, I loved this book and I'd absolutely love to read the next books in the series, knowing that Luc's brooding older brother is up next!
