Two years ago I made a mistake, a big one and then I threw in a couple more just for good measure. I screwed up my life big time but I made it through. I was lucky. 


Then I was given the opportunity for a fresh start. Two years in Auckland, NZ, ‘The City of Sails’. Away from the LA gossip, a chance to breathe, to get my life back together. 


I grabbed it and packed my new set of golden rules with me. 


I don’t do relationships.

I don’t do commitment.

I don’t do white picket fences.


And I especially don’t do arrogant, holier-than-thou, smoking hot K9 officers who walk into my ER and rock my world.




The only thing I know for certain about Dr. Michael Oliver is the guy is an arrogant, untrustworthy player, and I’d barely survived the last one of those in my life. Once was more than enough. 


The man might be gorgeous but my eleven-year-old daughter takes number one priority and I won’t risk her being hurt, again. I’m a solo dad, a K9 cop and a son to pain in the ass, bigoted parents.


I don’t have time for games. 

I don’t have time for taking chances.

I don’t have time for more complications in my life.


And I sure as hell don’t have time for the infuriating Dr. Michael Oliver, however damn sexy he is. 







They say first impressions are so important and usually are correct.  Well not in this case.  Michal comes across as shallow, and Josh hates that about him.  Josh comes across too structured and unwilling to bend his self-imposed view of life.


Unlike many of the reviews about this twosome, I started off with a dislike for Josh at first, I am not sure why, maybe because he made assumptions of Michael and was unwilling to give him any slack.


The story felt well-paced and real.  I liked the banter between both characters and of course their fight against their feelings for one another.  I also thought there was a little humor mixed in which allowed the characters to develop and overcome their differences and views.


All in all the book was a great debut for a new author, I really grew to like and feel for the characters. I look forward to more books from this author.
