Lexie Sarcone is just your average girl. She's a twenty-six year old, petite brunette with a feisty streak who carries a pair of handcuffs around since they coordinate so nicely with her badge and gun. Some men find that a turn-on. But not Lexie's ex-boyfriend. After he left her, citing her job as the problem, Lexie swore off dating. And working as a decoy for vice only solidified her resolve, but now that Officer Sarcone has transferred to burglary division, all bets are off.
Detective Michael Riley has a reputation for being a ladies' man. His chiseled features, gorgeous eyes, and sexy body have allowed him to get away with a lot of things. But underneath the good looks lies a competent investigator. The job is one of the few things that Michael takes seriously, and protecting his fellow officers comes above all else.
When the department's top detectives are assigned to investigate a string of home invasions that are being orchestrated by an unknown crime syndicate, Detective Riley enlists the help of a few new recruits. Immediately, he and Lexie are drawn to one another, but the job must come first. A drunken evening and a few close calls inevitably force the two to admit they have an undeniable chemistry, but Lexie isn't sure if she can let someone get close to her again, especially someone with Michael's reputation. As they struggle to stop the crime spree, Michael must find a way to prove himself to Lexie. His only goals are to win her heart and keep the city safe.
