"4 1/2 stars! TOP PICK! Layne can always be counted on to create an engaging, steamy and thoroughly rewarding reading experience, and she brings all her considerable talents to bear on this third installment of her New York's Finest series. This story dwells in tiny details and unforgettable moments that combine to make this cantankerous partners-to-lovers story into something remarkable. Layne forces both her highly reserved hero, as well as his outgoing, clever heroine, to undergo some intense soul-searching, but their longing only makes their happiness that much more intense and adds considerably to an already-winning series."―RT Book Reviews
"4 1/2 stars! HOT! Smart dialogue, creative plotting and an insightful, unexpected romance ensure that Layne's latest New York's Finest novel is a sure-fire success...a pitch-perfect addition to a lovely series."―RT Book Reviews on Steal Me
"Layne launches the New York's Finest contemporary romance series with this stellar example of the genre. Ava and Luc's sparks are immediate, and the evolution of their relationship-which starts with little common ground except a dedication to singlehood-is stimulating and realistic. They negotiate their professional and romantic interactions with banter that's clever but not self-satisfied, and their moment of truth feels warm and real. Fans of slightly gritty contemporaries will adore this"―Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Frisk Me
"4 1/2 stars! The first in Layne's New York's Finest series is funny, delightfully steamy and deeply touching, setting the bar quite high. Layne creates protagonists who are fully realized and likable, ensuring that their individual journeys are as clever and moving as their romance, and her novels are always the better for it. A bustling, detailed setting and a stellar cast of supporting characters, particularly the hero's large and outspoken family, provide the perfect backdrop for her characters and keep expectations high for the rest of this soon-to-be-a-hit series."―RT Book Reviews on Frisk Me
"Layne is hands down the queen of witty dialogue and sexy scenes. Frisk Me was a sensual combo of both that left me dying for more."―#1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken
"Frisk Me is a terrific love story--equal parts sweet and hot. Layne is a master of both sexual tension and the soul-satisfying HEA."―Serena Bell, USA Today bestselling author
"Funny, intelligent and touching."―Ruthie Knox, USA Today bestselling author on After the Kiss

After six years of being partners, Vincent and Jill Henley have seen a lot of grisly stuff, and they've got the good cop/bad cop thing down pat. But Jill takes a three month break to help her ailing mother, and comes back with a fiancé...and Vincent is none too happy about it, for reasons that have nothing to do with work.
Vincent is such a strong character that he jumps off the page at you, and his gruff demeanor is the most well-written one I've ever come across. His seemingly non-communicative ways are just the opposite, and Jill is definitely the only woman who understands what he's trying to say (well, most of the time). He's brilliant, focused, driven, and content in his life; his family is wonderful (can I become a Moretti?? Pretty please?). His partner is bubbly, energetic, fun...everything he's not, and he's fine with that.
But the sparks between them are so volatile, it's a miracle they didn't set the station on fire years ago.
Jill accepts that Vincent doesn't want a personal relationship with her, and decides to move on. Her fiancé is a great guy - he's so nearly perfect that she begins to question why they're together. Then she adds in the small things Vincent starts doing for her, that he never did before, and she has to wonder if Vincent wants what he can't have, or if he really wants her. It's a tough one for her to figure out, because even though she's usually in tune with Vincent, her own feelings cloud her normally sharp thought processes.
When these two DO get together, it's not smooth sailing, but damn, is it hot! They are the perfect partners in both life and work, and seeing Jill realize her own shortcomings while Vincent digs deep to uncover emotions he didn't even think he was capable of having led to the most entertaining, hot, fantastic read of the series this far - and, being as the first two were outstanding, that's saying something! Highly recommended.
This is a fabulous friends to lovers story. Vin and Jill have been partners with the NYPD for 6 years. The story starts when Jill is arriving home after a 3 month leave of absence when she went to stay and care for her mother in Florida. For Vin, it's the first realization about just how much his partner means to him...it's more than just their friendship and partnership. He plans to ask her out and see if it can be something more for her, too. The thing is, Vin is NOT a talker or someone who's emotionally available. As a result, while he missed her horribly while she was gone, he didn't really talk or communicate with Jill that much while she was gone. As a result, the huge diamond engagement ring on her finger is a HUGE shock. How can she be marrying someone else?
Jill's whirlwind romance with Tom was perfect. He was perfect, but now that she's home she's picking up strange vibes from Vin. For a lot of this book, Jill is involved with another man, but Lauren Layne did an incredible job of writing that aspect of the story. There is NO cheating involved. There are just hints of something not quite right...something more with Vin. But how can Jill give up perfection with Tom on the off-chance of maybe something with Vin, the most emotionally unavailable person she knows. Yes, they are best friends, but neither knows what to do here. Vin wants her to be happy and she is, but that possibility is there and it's haunting both of them.
Seriously, Lauren Layne is one of my all-time favorite authors, and usually I love her books for their snappy, witty repartee. This is not that book. Vin is not a talker, but I loved it all the same. The emotion...wow, it just saturated every word, every glance, every piece of dialogue NOT spoken. It was so, so good!
Vin is a cop and person who's always hid his emotions very well. I think it's because of that simple fact that I found this book to be highly emotional and angst-filled. There were moments where my heart just broke for him. He's a good guy, but he just doesn't know how to relate to Jill...or anyone in any kind of emotional way. He's a bit stunted and it was his mother's explanation of why that broke my heart. Nothing happened to him, but he grew up in a big boisterous family and was always the shy one. As a result, he learned how to live on the periphery, never engaging, and wow, that really affected me as a reader. I wanted to just wrap him up in a big old hug.
I'll be honest, there is not a single Lauren Layne book that I have read that I wouldn't absolutely recommend. This is one of those too, but this one is for readers who like that underlying chemistry and emotion that makes for a great angsty read. I loved it!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
So, no, this wasn’t a fun read for me, except for getting to spend more time with the lively Moretti clan. I love this rowdy bunch of Italians and the women who’ve taken on their sons. I sincerely hope that LL will reconsider telling Elena’s story in the future. She’s such a strong character that it would be a shame for her to not get her own HEA. Plus we would get to revisit the Moretti’s again.
Obviously for personal reasons this wasn’t the book for me, but don’t let that sway you. Lauren Layne creates such unique, engaging characters that all her books are worth reading.
