When Officer Rick Boyd answers a call about a peeping Tom, he doesn’t expect to find a gorgeous woman holding the binoculars. But Gina Silvano’s no peeping Tom, and she can catch her cupcake truck’s kinky vandals herself, thank you very much. No sexy cops required.
No matter how hot their stakeouts, by-the-book Officer Boyd can’t see a future with a dangerous, rule-breaking wild-child who despises the law. He’s never felt more alive, though, and expunging her from his heart might be impossible.
But loving each other might cost them more than they are able to give.
|The book opens up with Gina Silvano the lead female character trying to spy on her own food truck, which actually makes sweets during the day but has to be parked on the street at night.

The take her to her apartment, and when they get back to the station they realize that she has taken off with a pair of night vision googles that with other items needed to be placed into evidence.
