New York's Finest #2
Lauren Layne
Releasing Nov 24th, 2015


Being a cop might be in Anthony Moretti's blood, but protecting and serving the city of New York has always been more than just the family business. If that means his love life stays locked up, well then that's just another sacrifice made in the line of duty. That is, until he sets eyes on the gorgeous new waitress at The Darby Diner and suddenly Anthony's morning coffee is leaving him a whole lot more hot and bothered than usual.

Though waitressing at The Darby isn't exactly Maggie Walker's dream job, it pays the bills and gives her time to work on her novel. Now if only she could stop fantasizing about gorgeous Anthony Moretti every time he sits down at her table, she'd really be in great shape. But when he needs her help identifying a criminal threatening The Darby—and Maggie recognizes her ex-husband—she fears her fresh start might be a pipe dream. Faster than a New York minute, Maggie and Anthony find themselves in one perilous pursuit that only gets hotter with each and every rule-breaking kiss.


Have you ever picked up a book that you just knew was going to leave you with a huge smile on your face?  That is what I can always expect from a Lauren Layne romance.  Laced with sexual tension, perfectly timed laugh-out-loud banter and characters you can't help but fall in love with...Lauren's romances are not to be missed.  That being said, STEAL ME certainly stole the show for me!

"Captain" Anthony Moretti is one sexy piece of Italian beef baby!  I for one LOVE a hero who is gruff, a little grumpy, and just the right side of super sexy.  No wonder Maggie couldn't help but drop or spill every time her was around.

Their romance is set on a slow sizzle as she becomes a key player in a huge case that could make or break Anthony's career.  As Maggie and Anth spend more time together, and share some very hot kisses, the walls start to crumble, and we get to really see them at their most vulnerable.  I loved that they were able to be their true selves at those quiet times when it was just Maggie and Anth, no case, no real world, no crappy jobs or family interruptions..just Maggie and Anth and those perfect moments of imperfect.

Anth has his moments of stupid male, but you can't help but love him anyway.  I loved the individual growth, the courage to see beyond the everyday, and the way they encouraged each other to really push for what they truly want in life.  Anth and Maggie are an amazing and very sexy couple who just shine!  Nonna is a kick in the pants as usual, as is the whole Moretti clan!
