I picked this challenge to do:
Read a book you’ve had for over five years 
Officer Luc Moretti had no idea that his dive into the East River would have him drowning in a media frenzy. No matter how many times he tells reporters he was just doing his job, they're determined to make him into NYC's newest hero. Coming from a long line of NYPD's finest, Luc knows that being a cop has nothing to do with headlines and viral videos, and he's more than ready to get back to life away from the cameras—until he meets the gorgeous but jaded journalist assigned to film a TV special on him.

Ava Sims may be the only woman in NYC who isn't in love with Officer Moretti. That's why she's going after the real story—to find out about the man behind the badge. Ava's determined to keep things strictly professional, but the more time she spends around Luc, even she has to admit there's something about a man in uniform . . . and she can't wait to get him out of his.
I'm not sure why I've waited so long to read this one. I am fudging a bit on the older than 5 year part I think it has a month or two before it's five years old. But it's so close I had use it.

The books I've read by Layne I've really enjoyed. Unfortunately, she has written some in first person so I've passed on those. I'm so not a fan of those types of books.

Right away I could tell that I'd be liking the Moretti family. They seemed like the type of loving family you'd want to be part of. I really loved how the brothers lived with the grandma. So sweet. Sure, cost-wise it was a great idea, but it was still them living with grandma.

I really like Luc. You have to feel for him. He hates how famous he's become. He wants no part of it. He feels like so much of a failure that everything about being famous is too much for him. The sad thing is that he didn't deserve the feelings he was feeling. If he hadn't run from his past he would have learned that.

Now Ava is in a different boat. I could not stand her what so ever. She is a horrible person who I don't find to be heroine material. She is willing to do something very bad to someone she really cares about so that she can look like a big shot to her family. A family that doesn't give a crap about her. She really brought the whole book. Down. Since the author usually doesn't write such unlikeable characters all I can think is that she couldn't see what was right in front of her face.

I don't believe her when she tries to make up with Luc. I think it would be much better off without her. I also don't get how his family could like her. TERRIBLE PERSON!

The only thing that makes this a readable book is Luc and his family. I stomached her for them. I hope the next book's heroine is much better. I can say that I'm glad that I did read it because it gave me some insight to the family and that's needed for the series. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the book if you read it.
Come back on July 2nd "Trivia"
