In the six years since her husband was killed by S.W.A.T., Carrie Padilla has spent long hours at work, rebuilding a life for herself and her son. The little time she has at home is spent keeping her eight-year-old son out of trouble, but he is all too eager to try to be the man in the house. When a handsome cop shows up on her doorstep, her errant son in tow, Carrie's heart stutters. The sexy Italian cop sets off all kinds of bells in her system, and she knows there's only one thing she can do to save what is left of her family, her husband’s memory, and her heart...avoid her new neighbor at all costs.

S.W.A.T. officer Jake Stafani already lost one little boy to gang violence, the dead boy’s older brother is missing, and Jake's not about to let the same thing happen to a neighbor's son. He drags the youngster home only to discover much more than a passing interest in the boy's beautiful, but wary, mother. Forced to take a leave of absence after a bust goes awry, Jake can think of nothing better to occupy his time than to keep Carrie and her son safe, and locate the missing teen who holds the key to taking the gang off the streets, once and for all.

But Jake doesn’t count on his stubborn, intriguing neighbor distracting him from his job, or the passion that flares between them. He doesn’t expect her amazing son to steal a piece of his heart. Jake is ready to risk everything for Carrie, body and soul. But it’s not all up to him. If their new love is to survive, Carrie will need to be strong enough to see the man's beating heart behind the badge, to look beyond the pain of her past, and decide that loving again is worth the risk.

Carrie Padilla lost her husband six years ago during a bank robbery when he was shot by a swat member. He was not the robber but she is still working on herself. Her son is wanting to be the man of the house but ends up being dragged home by the new neighbor Jake Stafani who is in his uniform. Carrie is brought back to the day of when her husband died she is now grateful that he is not pressing charges since he was trying to break into his home. Instead he has him and his friend who he saw take off help him with work around his place. She ends up going over to his house and finds out that he is not married. The more time they spend together because now he is helping her son with baseball she is getting more attracted to him. He is most diffidently attracted to her. They both must overcome their fears if they went any type of a relationship that is going to last. The way it gets worked out is great and this is a good story. I gave this book 4 stars.
