My niche in life is being an asshole. It suits me. I’m that guy who jokes about love and how settling down is overrated. Why would a guy ever fall for one woman when you can have as many as you want? Makes no sense to me.
But if being a cop has taught me anything, it’s that life is unpredictable. And that is exactly what Katherine is. The woman makes me question my sanity on a daily basis. Sometimes she makes me want to keep her to myself; other times, she makes me want to jump off a cliff just to get away from her.
Yet I still find myself turning into that little pussy I said I’d never be. Showing up on her front door holding flowers, only to have her throw them at me. Calling just to say hello, only for her to press ignore. Yeah, I’ve become a pussy all right. A whipped one at that. At first she was a challenge, but now I don’t like the fact that she is playing hard to get. But when someone comes after me, threatens my job, my life. It’s her that stands by my side. It’s her who has to pay for my sins. And it’s her who I’m threatened to lose. One thing that you need to know about me is that I'll fight for what I believe in. And I believe in her more than myself.
What’s that saying? Boy meets girl and the rest is history…Well, those who fuck with what is mine, will become history.
I sit at the wedding party table and watch the lovely couple smile at one another as they eat their cake. It’s sickening.
I can’t get my mind off the beautiful yet bitchy woman sitting next to me. She is having a much easier time ignoring me. But she did admit earlier that she was a good faker. I try to get up the courage to speak to her by taking another drink of my wine. I don’t need the liquid courage to actual speak to her; I need it to keep me calm from being a dick, which is what I do so well. I really don’t want her to kick me in the balls like she said she would.
“Would you like to talk about what happened that day?” I ask her politely.
She looks up from her cake and stares at me as if I have two heads. “Not to you.”
“Maybe I can help you,” I offer. “I am a police officer,” I remind her as if I wasn’t the one who threw her down in her front yard and handcuffed her. “Does that type of thing happen often with you and your boyfriend?” Maybe they like to fight. Maybe it’s like their foreplay. Believe me, I have seen some crazy shit.
She places her fork on the white tablecloth and leans over to whisper, “I told you once and I’ll tell you again. Drop it. What happened was none of your business.”
I reach out to softly rub her arm, and I feel it break out in goosebumps. “Does he hurt you?” I ask looking deep into her eyes. I’m being a total ass, and she knows it.
She jerks her arm away from me. “I had just got home that morning and was in a bad fucking mood,” she growls.
Just gotten home? It was like seven in the morning. “What in the hell were you doing just getting home?” I demand. “Especially the way you were dressed.” I smile as I let the dickness come out. “Been out hooking all night? And your man got tired of having to share you?” The memory of her telling me that she wanted to fuck her man’s best friend is still fresh in my mind. And what a thought that is.
I hear Samantha gasp as I watch Katherine’s eyes narrow on me. She reaches over to the table, and the next thing I know, she’s shoving her cake into my face. “Vas te faire encule salaud,” she hisses in my ear before I feel a cold liquid land in my lap. I can literally hear my cock sizzle as if she just put out a fire. Holy fuck, did she cuss at me in French? I think I just came.

“A favor is like love. It can be used against you.”
“’Nothing I can’t handle,’ I tell him. And it’s true. I have a Taser in my purse. A girl can never be too careful.”
“I see you, Kat. I see you clear as day and just like the sun, you blind me with how beautiful you are.”
My first Shantel Tessier read and I am in awe of her skills. Upon completion of this book, I promptly added everything in her Goodreads listing to my TBR. I found her characters to be fully inhabited, prickly – yet likable, and profoundly interesting. Ms. Tessier is obviously a keen observer of human nature and gives an acutely insightful view into her characters’ thoughts and habits. This couple was quite explosive together in both good and bad ways. He starts off being a near total prick while she presents as an impulsive and unbalanced shrew, and in combination - they seem to bring out the worst in each other for quite some time. Both are witty, smart, hard-working, and big hearted, yet each possesses a painful history, hair-trigger temper, and are eternally angry and prone to viciously lashing out verbally and/or aggressively when upended. But we find there are reasons for this, and the unravelling of their story was fascinating, well-paced, and beautifully written. Their journey is moving, devastating, and volcanically hot. More please.
