Review & Giveaway ~*~ Arrested by Love by Virna DePaul

Blurb ~*~

In the steamy world of bestselling romance author Virna DePaul, there are bad boys and good girls on both sides of the law. And when they mix, it’s always an explosive combination. Now the three novellas of her contemporary Red-Hot Cops series are available together in this eBook anthology:

Though Claire Fullerton, a respected journalist, isn’t afraid to walk on the wild side, she’s terrified that unleashing her inner vixen will expose her to getting hurt. But when Claire is captured by a notorious gang of bikers, she recognizes a friendly face from her darkest fantasies: undercover cop Ty Williamson, who has managed to infiltrate the gang to bring them down from the inside. Now Ty’s determined to bind Claire to him and prove that he wants all of her: the good with the bad. In fact, the badder she is, the better they’ll be—together.

People used to call her Sure-Thing-Sarah, but the only thing Sarah Larson’s sure about these days is the torch she’s carried for undercover cop Luke Anderson. Four years ago, Sarah made the biggest mistake of her life: leaving Luke to marry another cop. Now, a year after her divorce, Luke’s back in her life—ready to convince Sarah that he’s the one when it comes to love. But Sarah has a big fear—that her dangerously possessive ex-husband is out to make sure that her second chance at happiness is destroyed forever.

As a former centerfold, Jenna Mills is a pro at deflecting male attention, and with good reason. A painful past has made her mistrustful of all men—and hell-bent on getting revenge on one in particular. But first she needs help overcoming her fear of physical intimacy. And honorable cop Noah James might just be the perfect place to start. Noah’s used to making a woman feel safe, in bed and out. But when Jenna makes him an indecent proposal, Noah’s willing to give her everything she’s asking for . . . and more.

Arrested by Love is erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

4 Star Review ~*~ 
Arrested by Love is comprised of three novella's ~ shorter stories ~ with interwoven characters. The relationships developed are good and strongly written. There does feel like a lack of closure with at least a couple of the stories.  Since there is drama with the characters as the deal with other issues on top of the relationships, I really felt a little let down that some of that drama wasn't closed or closed just too easily ~ and the drama doesn't carry from one book to the next. 

Overall, Arrested by Love is an enjoyable group of stories that is sexy, hot, and full of promise.  Who doesn't love Men in Uniform!!  Each story is full of erotica that is well written and well timed.  Ms. DePaul really knows how to steam things up!!  There is a little of everything in these three stories from menage to toys.  Grab it and enjoy this hot, quick, summer read!!
