First comes love, then comes pleasure… Sarah’s always loved undercover cop Luke Anderson. Only Luke comes from money, plus he’s sexy AND honorable. Four years ago, she made the biggest mistake of her life–fearing she wasn’t good enough for Luke, she left him to marry another cop. A year after her divorce, Luke’s back to prove her wrong and show her what she’s been missing.
Cop Appeal has everything the reader could ask for in a spicy short story. The writing is flawless and the story is powerful. The sex scenes are ultra hot and the chemistry between Sarah and Luke will steam your glasses. Ms Meyers brings together old lovers, a stalker of an ex-husband, lots of men in blue to captivate and entertain the reader.
Four years ago, Sarah married the wrong man. She had made a decision between two men, Richard and Luke – both cops – and made the wrong one. Richard seemed charming and far less complicated than Luke. She went for Richard, but shortly after the honeymoon he showed his true, violent self. She has now been divorced for a year, but Richard is continuing to show his true colors with threatening notes and physical assaults. Enough is enough. Although she is nervous about reporting his behavior to the police, she feels she has no other options.
Luke has heard that Sarah is now single and he is back to take Sarah up on the promise she made when she decided to marry Richard. She had promised Luke that if she ever divorced Richard she’d “do Luke a different way, every day, Monday through Sunday.”
This short little story rockets along. There’s mystery, sizzling sex, touching romance and even a menage. I like that the author has created this “evil”ex-husband who won’t let go and the “white knights” (the police) to save Sarah. It’s wonderful to see an abusive husband brought down! It’s a story of admitting mistakes and recapturing one’s true love. And it’s about figuring out what is really important in life and letting all the baggage go.
I loved this little story and look forward to anything else that Ava Meyers writes!
