Scroll down for an exclusive excerpt!



There she was, eating a chicken burrito waiting for traffic to clear, when he appeared like a knight in shining armor…



Ellodie Cassandra Solaire made a single, solitary New Year’s resolution.

That resolution was set in stone, and she wouldn’t be breaking it, no matter what.

It was simple: Say yes to every person who asks her out on a date until she finds a boyfriend.

Easy, right?


She breaks that New Year’s resolution three months into the year after a guy gives her serial killer vibes.

Fast forward three months, and she’s unhappily saying yes to any man who asks.

Until one day, there she is, eating a chicken burrito waiting for traffic to clear, and he appears like a knight in shining armor.

One second, she’s counting down the seconds until the parade dissipates so she can go home, and the next, a car is flying through the air directly beside her, courtesy of a hot cop performing a PIT maneuver.

It’s during the middle of the arrest when Quaid Carter’s eyes find hers.

From that moment on, she’s lost to anyone else but him.

The only problem is that serial killer vibe she got off of her potential date a few months ago isn’t just a vibe. It’s a full-blown obsession. And the serial killer decides that she won’t be the one to get away.

Quaid Carter has different ideas, though.

Hot Cop got out of his cruiser, did a sliding maneuver across the hood of it, then stood up. Seconds later, he was bodily dragging 4-Runner guy out of his vehicle and slamming him to the hood of the cruiser with barely contained violence.

“You have the right to remain silent…” the cop started to read him his rights.

That’s when I caught my breath.

It’d all happened to fast.

And sweet Mary, mother of God.

The commentators on the DPD’s page were right.

The cop was hot.

Really, really, really hot.

As in, I have a fuckin’ stutter and I’m not even talking, hot.

The cop was in uniform.

He had on the cargo pants I’d seen some of them wear, but not the uniform that patrol wore.

Black tactical pants, a black t-shirt that read ‘Dallas Police’ on it, and a thick black belt that held a big gun, shiny silver cuffs, a flash‐light, a taser, a cannister of mace, and a baton. And that bright gold badge.

The man’s knee went into 4-Runner’sbackside, and he pinned him there using only the strength in his legs.

With his hands, he expertly cuffed the guy who was likely going to see significant time in a jail cell.

It was in that quiet lull, as the man stopped screaming about his arms hurting, that I took a loud, crunchy bite of my crispito.

The sound had the cop and the suspect both looking over at me.

I mean, my car was only a few inches away from the police cruiser.

4-Runner guy sneered.

The cop, with his mirrored Ray-Ban sunglasses, head of gorgeously delicious light brown hair, and jaw line that would make any woman—lesbian or straight—weep, grinned.

“Good job,” I said through another mouthful of delicious crispito.

The man lowered his sunglasses just enough and winked at me. “Thanks, Calamity.
