Let’s do a calendar, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Well, they—I.e. Kilgore Police Department’s public relations specialists—were wrong.
Now, every time Dax Tremaine walks around a corner, the women of Kilgore, Texas can’t help calling him Mr. January.
Mr. January, can you fix my flat tire? Mr. January, can you cuff me? Mr. January, can you sign my boob?
It goes from bad to worse when even on a SWAT call, the women won’t stay away.
It was the worst time of her life. Rowen Roberts had finally admitted to herself that the man she loved would never love her back. She was just fired from her job for violating client confidentiality, and to make matters worse, she’s held up at gunpoint in a convenience store where she only wanted some ice cream to help mask the pain.
The moment the gun is pressed to her forehead, she knows she has a decision to make. Follow the rules and maybe possibly live, or go down swinging where at least she can salvage just a little bit of her dignity.
And when Mr. January himself tells her to do what the gunman says, she’s had enough. Rowen has never really been a girl that does what she’s told. Mr. January won’t have to save her. She can dang well save herself.

"Dax was like a shot of warm whiskey straight to the heart."
I was so intrigued by the synopsis, knowing that the Mr. January situation would be very amusing. Knowing that there would be plenty of #HotCops, some that I'd met before and others I could look forward to spending time with in the future. And all of that is true...
What I wasn't expecting was to get beside myself upset over what happens to Rowen. I got attached to her and wanted to throw a shovel in the trunk and solve at least one of her problems...permanently. Don't look at me like that, all innocent, I know I'm not the only one that commits virtual crimes while reading.
If you are a fan of this author's work, you're gonna be thrilled with the support characters that won't be strangers. Everything that you've loved in the past will just be the icing and sprinkles on the cake that you get to have and eat as well. I can't get enough. The line forms here...
