When Olivia Fitzgerald gets a bit tipsy on a friend’s hen night, the last thing she expects is trouble with a policeman. Even worse, the policeman is her ex, Michael Williams.
Michael stops her from getting arrested and insists on seeing her home. Olivia can’t resist the urge to ask the question that has haunted her since they split—why did he never have sex with her?

Michael just wants to get Olivia home without revealing that he is still in love with her. But Olivia ends up in his arms, begging him to take her to bed. He doesn’t want to reject her again, even if he is on duty, but he just can’t imagine a good girl like Olivia allowing him to do the dirty things he’d always longed to do with her.

Can he dare to hope she might still love him after she spends one night in his custody?

Olivia Fitzgerald is at a friend’s hen’s night and has had a few too many tequila slammers. Michael Williams was a long ago ex boyfriend and now is a policeman. When two of Olivia’s friends “assault” Michael, he and his partner are forced to arrest them. Incredibly drunk – and a little jealous of the attention – Olivia soon finds herself pressed against the police car and Michael’s rock hard body. Despite their past, Olivia and Michael had never had sex. This time Olivia isn’t going to take no for an answer – but Michael also has a few tricks up his sleeve.

This is a steamy novella full of spunky characters and a lovely bit of kink. I enjoyed how Michael is controlling, but not a jerk about it. I thought it was clear from the outset he still held a torch for Olivia, and she clearly hadn’t ever fully got over his refusal to have sex with her. While the set up of their meeting – a bunch of drunken girls being nabbed by the cops for outrageous behaviour – wasn’t very new, I found Michael and Olivia’s situation and their characters were fresh enough to have me invested in their relationship and interested in how things would progress between them. I was also impressed by how Michael had enough control over himself to leave Olivia while she was drunk and not really able to properly consent to his full wishes. I felt this spoke a lot about his character and put him in a positive light.

While not for the faint of heart, there’s nothing too offensive or over the top kink wise in this book. Some restraints, oral sex and a bit of spanking certainly makes for spicy reading – but I didn’t find it really pushed the envelope. I’d think this would be a good book to recommend people who like some kink in their erotic reading but nothing truly “out there”. I enjoyed reading about Michael and Olivia and while I found their coming together a little too smooth to be realistic or believable, it was a really great read and something I’d happily read again when the mood strikes. Recommended.
