Being a cop might be in Anthony Moretti's blood, but protecting and serving the city of New York has always been more than just the family business. If that means his love life stays locked up, well then that's just another sacrifice made in the line of duty. That is, until he sets eyes on the gorgeous new waitress at The Darby Diner and suddenly Anthony's morning coffee is leaving him a whole lot more hot and bothered than usual.
Though waitressing at The Darby isn't exactly Maggie Walker's dream job, it pays the bills and gives her time to work on her novel. Now if only she could stop fantasizing about gorgeous Anthony Moretti every time he sits down at her table, she'd really be in great shape. But when he needs her help identifying a criminal threatening The Darby-and Maggie recognizes her ex-husband-she fears her fresh start might be a pipe dream. Faster than a New York minute, Maggie and Anthony find themselves in one perilous pursuit that only gets hotter with each and every rule-breaking kiss.

Laynes standout second New Yorks Finest contemporary (after Frisk Me) pairs the oldest brother in a family of cops with a sweet and sassy waitress. Police Capt. Anthony Moretti has no doubt that hell one day reach his dream of becoming police commissioner, but a cocky burglar continues to outsmart him. Hes obsessed with thoughts of how to finally catch the conniving criminal, and his last relationship ended badly, so hes reluctant to get involved with anyoneeven Maggie Walker, the cute, accident-prone waitress his family adores. Everyone in Maggies life needs something from her, and no matter how much she may want to say no, she always gives in. All she wants is to get her book published so she can make a much-needed career change. When she realizes the burglar is her ex-husband and teams up with Anthony to catch him, their relationship becomes much more complicated than the case. Readers will love getting to know the Monetti family better, and the storys pacing is flawless. This bold contemporary serves up quick-witted banter, a hint of suspense, and a nice set-up for the next installment. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, Seymour Agency. (Dec.)
