This is the third book in the author’s series Cops and Docs. The characters are new so it can be read as a stand alone novel. Written from the point of view of both main characters, the plot presents the story of rookie butch cop Haley and psychiatrist femme Tonya who meet in dire circumstances which triggers a series of events that include their romantic involvement. However, there is more to this book that the romance, there is a good amount of personal instrospection, family problems, identity struggles and trust issues. Throughout the book, the main characters explore their own conflicts as well as their slow burn relationship. Their relationship dynamic is clearly butch-femme, very stereotipical. It is not my favourite in terms of lesbian romances but the author pulls it well. The secondary characters support the story with realism in the main plot and subplots.
Overall, a good read if you are looking for a butch-femme romance with some personal angst. 4 stars.
