Law Man by Kristen Ashley  Four years ago, Mitch Lawson moved across the breezeway from Mara Hanover and she fell in love with the tall, good-looking police detective who had an uncanny ability to dress well even though he’s single. It was not a stalker kind of love; she knows she has no hope since Mitch is way out of her league. That doesn’t change the fact that he’s her dream man.

Then one day Mara’s faucet won’t turn off and she knows nothing about plumbing. Being a good guy, Mitch offers to help then he invites himself over for pizza. Mara gives it a go but finds herself running away from him (literally) on their first date, standing him up their second and then she runs into him (again literally) on her way to save her ne’er do well, criminal cousin’s kids who’d just run away from their ne’er do well, criminal Dad.

Suddenly, Mara finds she has on her hands the guardianship of two kids and a gorgeous police detective who’s willing to do anything to help out… including giving fabulous foot rubs.

But Mara knows who she is and where she came from and she knows Detective Mitch Lawson is better than her. Hot law man Mitch disagrees and his challenge is to convince Mara to let go of her past and he sets about building a family at the same time he finds he also needs to protect them all against known and unknown adversaries that would tear them apart.

This is a story that starts off with a lady by the name of Mara going to a neighbor to see if her husband is home to help her with a leaky faucet. When she finds out he is not another neighbor by the name of Mitch Lawson over hears and says he can help hear. She has been wanting to meet him for the last four years and she does not know he was looking for a way also to meet. Even though both knew some things about each other already from the people around them in the apartments. She does not have very much self-esteem and so she feels like a fool around him. When she promises to make dinner the next night and goes over to find that another female is over there she feels embarrassed and takes off for the next two nights. Still trying to avoid him she is finally cornered after a phone call from her two little second cousins who call when their father does not feed them. Trying to leave she is cornered and Mitch ends up giving her a ride explaining on the way about her cousin and his problems. After picking up the kids and talking to them he tells her he wants to help her with the kids. Then when they go to their house to get cloths and other items he sees drugs and other stuff around he calls in and they arrest he cousin. She takes the kids but after a couple of days she does not want any help from him. Then her apartment is totally destroyed by the Russian mob and they go live with Mitch. From there he helps her with not only the kids but also with her self-confidence and showing her how beautiful a person she really is. She also tells him of her past and he helps her overcome those obstacles as well. This is an exciting book with a lot of action and more of her family members show up to try to cause problems that does not work out for them. A good story. I got this book from net galley.
