Raylynn gives me a once over then bursts into laughter.
I look down to see what’s so funny and nearly lose it.
Son of a bitch.
There’s a huge white spot on the crotch of my shorts. It doesn’t help that I’m hard as a rock too, because of what she’s wearing.
“I didn’t mean to interrupt. You could have said you were busy.”
“Funny. Get the hell in here so I can get these off,” I grunt.
She steps inside my apartment and looks around. “Nice place.”
“Thanks. I’ll be right back.” I dart toward the bedroom. “It’s paint by the way,” I call over my shoulder before shutting the door.
Last goddamn time I go paintballing with Jameson and Liam too.
“That’s what they all say,” she yells back.
When I come out, I’m dressed in a nice pair of jeans and a polo shirt. Raylynn gives me a whistle and motions for me to spin around.
“Forget it. You’re not objectifying me.” I grin. “And that paint. Ask Jameson what happened.”
She holds up her hands and snickers. “I’ll pass, but thanks.”
“You good to walk in those?” I point to her shoes. “We’ll need to take the subway.”
“These old things?” Raylynn lifts a foot. “I could run laps in these.”
“We’re not running laps, but I’ll take your word for it.”
She reaches for my shoulders and starts massaging the muscles. “Aww, you’re tense. Are you in a mood?”
I’m tense because she’s standing in my apartment looking like a whole damn snack, and I know nothing is going to happen besides a few drinks.
“Sweetheart, the only mood I’m in is the mood to get out of this apartment for a while,” I lie.
“Well then , let’s get the fuck out of here!” she cheers. “Ooo. Wait a minute. Harley Wagner , are you wearing a gun or are you happy to see me?”
“Christ, I’m tense, and you’re in a really good mood.”
“Seriously, are you wearing your gun?” I sigh and slip my keys into my front pocket. “Yes, Raylynn. I’m packing heat.”
“Well, that I knew.”

This addition to the 425 Madison Ave series was a hit! We started out on a much-needed vacation with a little fling, that led to a fun wedding hook-up, and even after trying to be placed into the friend-zone after coming back home, things all just pointed to Harley and Raylynn being a perfect match.
I should have known since I enjoyed the first book by this author in this series, Love Under Construction, that I would like this one as well. And this one I liked even better! Once again we got to see a lot of the characters we’ve met in other books in the series, and it is so much fun to see all the connections. I really like how seamlessly this author was able to weave the past stories and characters not only from her own book, but also from other authors’ works into this one.
But just with this story itself, I fell in love with Harley, he was the big strong cop, but also such a nice guy, taking care of Raylynn no matter what she needed. Whether it was after food poisoning, protecting her from a stalker, and just the steamy perfect sex as well! I loved the steam in this story, it was perfect, and sexy, and just the right amount for my liking. Can’t wait to read on in this series, and I definitely need to pick up more by this author!
