up in smoke


Never start a fire you can’t control…

Connor Bannon is supposed to be dead. Dishonorably discharged from the Navy SEALs, he’s spent the last two years working as a street enforcer in Brooklyn for his cousin’s crime ring. Through a twist of fate, he’s now in Chicago, working undercover to bust criminals. But when a cute little arsonist joins the team-all combat boots, tiny jean shorts, and hot-pink hair-Connor’s notorious iron control slips.

Erin “she’s getting away” O’Dea knows two things. She hates authority. And… Nope, that’s it. When she’s forced to operate on the “right” side of the law, her fear of being confined and controlled blazes to the surface. The last thing she expects is a control freak like Connor to soothe her when she needs it most. Worse, something behind the sexy ex-soldier’s eyes ignites a dangerous inferno of desire. One that invites Erin to play with fire. And one that could get them both killed…


As if her thoughts had made him appear, Connor strode into the courthouse. Her pulse started beating double time, her stomach muscles tightening. Good Lord, the man was a fucking panty dropper. She’d only been away from him for a few hours and it felt like years since she’d experienced his presence. In jeans and a fitted gray T-shirt that molded to his muscles like her hands itched to do, he personified confidence and authority. Hot, rugged male. His gaze connected with hers immediately and darkened. She thought back to that morning when he’d dressed in the early morning light, his abs flexing as he pulled the shirt over his head. His erection barely contained by his boxers. She’d never been one to beg for anything, but she’d been seconds from offering him her mouth. Pleading for the privilege of sucking him off.

Conner shook his head at her with a sexy half smile on his face, as if he could read her thoughts across the room. He stopped at the metal detector and walked through after the security guard beckoned him forward. When the woman grabbed her wand and instructed him to raise his hands in the air, something ugly reared its head deep inside her. The detector hadn’t even beeped. There was no reason for the personal service. When the woman smiled at Connor and ran a hand down her ponytail, Erin propelled herself forward, boots echoing on the polished marble.

Erin hissed as she drew even with the guard. “If you’re done feeling up my boyfriend, I’d love a turn. We were in a rush this morning.”

The guard dropped the wand, letting it dangle near her thigh. “Did you just hiss at me?”

Erin hissed again.

“Okay.” Connor stepped between them, winking down at her. “We should go. Don’t want to keep the clerk waiting.”

Appreciation spread in her belly like honey. He hadn’t chided her for her behavior or apologized to the woman on her behalf. Instead he’d given the impression they were on their way to get married, appeasing her jealousy in one fell swoop. “That’s right.” She sauntered toward the elevator. “There’s vows to be exchanged. Rings to put on fingers. Shit like that.”

She glanced behind her to find Connor staring at her ass as she walked, so she put a little swing in her hips and savored his groan. Damn. She’d definitely never had this much fun at a courthouse.

A moment later, she and Connor stepped into an empty elevator. She hit the button for the top floor even though the clerk was on the first, and leaned back against the wall, looking up at him through her eyelashes. “How was your morning, baby? Was it worth leaving me in bed, all hot and bothered for you?”

“Fuck no, it wasn’t.” He crooked a big finger at her. “Climb on up here.”

This city is a constant source of inspiration, which is why I’ve decided to set my most recent books in the Line of Duty Series here.I moved to New York when I was eighteen, the day after I graduated high school. Threw my suitcase in the back of a Chevrolet Cavalier and drove across the country to find my adventure. I’m still finding it, little by little.​Thank you for being a part of it.

Up in Smoke :
Two bad ass people in a mission,
One sassy and smoking hot woman who loves put things on fire
One handsome, bad boy, with a strong dominant side
So what happened when a dishonorably discharged man from the Navy SEAL’s and a convict, specialist of « getting away » meet? A smoking fire!
Connor had to work undercover to bust criminals after being on the wrong side of the law.
Erin had to cooperate too if she wanted to ne out of prison. The two of them were part of a undercover team, with a some others convicts, all specialists in their field.

This book goes straight to the point : they met, they felt hot for each other, and damn it was an explosion of fireworks! It could it be easy but there were some hardships to overcome. He’s dominant and need to be in control, to restrain women; she can’t bear to be touched and had a lot of issues. Both were possessive. It was messed up from the beginning!

In a very short time, Connor felt the urge to protect Erin, at all costs. He could read through her and sensed when she snapped, panicked or blocking out things. When he noticed this part of vulnerability from her, he knew that he could stay away, literally. Bad boy with a heart of gold.
Erin had also a strong personality, snapped by a tough childhood. She had so many issues on her own and couldn’t understand why this handsome and troubled man wanted to be in her life. She ’s never felt so much desire for a men and was letting him into her life. She felt secure with him, but was struggling with her control issues and claustrophobia.

Throughout the story, a relationship is build, not in a conventional way, with an intense, passionate, smoking hot chemistry! What about the sex parts? I think you’ll need a change of panties out there, because Erin and Connor, with their filthy mouths, showed how much they were consumed and infatuated by each other.
Get ready for some very steamy moments!

The plot has a part of suspense, but it wasn’t outstanding Erin and Connor’s story. It was kind of slow, in contrast with the tornado of feelings out there. I really liked this story, and quickly fell for them. The instant attraction was so natural, the other characters were great, the dynamic between Erin and Connor, off the charts but also with their « team mates ». At the end, we have the glimpse of the next book, very intriguing and promising!
