Frisk Me (New York's Finest #1)

FRISK ME                                                      LAUREN LAYNE

Frisk Me (New York's Finest, #1)Officer Luc Moretti had no idea that his dive into the East River would have him drowning in a media frenzy. No matter how many times he tells reporters he was just doing his job, they're determined to make him into NYC's newest hero. Coming from a long line of NYPD's finest, Luc knows that being a cop has nothing to do with headlines and viral videos, and he's more than ready to get back to life away from the cameras—until he meets the gorgeous but jaded journalist assigned to film a TV special on him.

Ava Sims may be the only woman in NYC who isn't in love with Officer Moretti. That's why she's going after the real story—to find out about the man behind the badge. Ava's determined to keep things strictly professional, but the more time she spends around Luc, even she has to admit there's something about a man in uniform . . . and she can't wait to get him out of his.
 

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This is a fun fast paced story about a police officer named Luc Moretti, who had jumped into the river in New York to save a little girl. The video of the scene went viral on the web and he was having problems during his shift in doing his actual job. Being stopped throughout the day for photographs his partner liked it though. He came from a long line of police officers, and his father just retired as the police commissioner of New York’s finest. Enter Ava Sims, she does not think there is truly a person that would actually jump into the river to save someone unless they have some kind of angle to play out. No one in her mind can be that kind of person because they don’t exist. She is a television reporter and is assigned to getting the story of Luc Moretti, and turning this into her shot at the real news desk and not out on the street, for she come from T.V. people and her mom and dad tell her each time she calls that her brother and sister are higher up the food chain than she is. She wants to follow Luc and his partner around for a couple of weeks to get footage and though he does not want to do it he is ordered to since the department thinks this will change their image. By the end of the first week she is starting to wonder a bit when he invites her to his parents’ house for Sunday dinner. Surprised she accepts and has a good time and actually likes him a little. But then she starts digging into his past and his dead partner and he feels this is all wrong. He does all of the interviews that are required and on the last one when she thinks he will not show up he does. That is when it hits her after the interview and the way he responded to her that she was wrong but does not know how to fix it. She does fix herself first then she tries on him. The ending is good along with the rest of the book. The characters in the story are great. Especially the grandmother reminded me of an aunt when I visited my Italian side in New York, along with the big meals and the stories and everyone knowing your business, sometimes which is nice. This book is that about family good and not so good, and relationships, and moving forward. A very good book. I got this book from net galley.  I give you 5 stars.
