Review: Steal Me by Lauren Layne

Being a cop might be in Anthony Moretti's blood, but protecting and serving the city of New York has always been more than just the family business. If that means his love life stays locked up, well then that's just another sacrifice made in the line of duty. That is until he sets eyes on the gorgeous new waitress at The Darby Diner and suddenly Anthony's morning coffee is leaving him a whole lot more hot and bothered than usual.

Though waitressing at The Darby isn't exactly Maggie Walker's dream job, it pays the bills and gives her time to work on her novel. Now if only she could stop fantasizing about gorgeous Anthony Moretti every time he sits down at her table, she'd really be in great shape. But when he needs her help identifying a criminal threatening The Darby—and Maggie recognizes her ex-husband—she fears her fresh start might be a pipe dream. Faster than a New York minute, Maggie and Anthony find themselves in one perilous pursuit that only gets hotter with each and every rule-breaking kiss.
I was very happy that I enjoyed Steal Me much more than I did Frisk Me. I think the biggest difference is that I really liked both the hero and heroine to Steal Me. I can't say the same for Frisk Me. It happens. Sometimes one character can really bring down the book. 

I really enjoyed both Anthony and Maggie. They are great characters. I was also so glad to visit with the Moretti family. They are all so great. It's always fun to visit with them. The grandmother really cracks me up.

You'll really enjoy the way Anthony changed as a person. He grows so much. He learns the balance of work and life. He does have something in his past that makes work more important than finding love. When you read it you'll understand. 

Poor Maggie, you'll feel for her and what she's been through. She has not gotten as lucky as Anthony in the family department. Thankfully she'll have his. 

These two don't have the easiest road to love. So much stood in their way but once they passed everything you knew it would be clear sailing. At times both of them needed a kick in the ass to get over their crazy ideas, but once they worked it all out you 

As a whole, this is a wonderful story that I was so glad I read. It has plenty of romance and a little suspense to go with it. I only have one more book in the series and I hope that it's a good as this one. Any of you read her?
