Blurb:Gritty. Sexy. Taboo. Melanie Cannon is troubled, desperate, and only eighteen. Taking the fall for a friend, she’s forced into a drug education class, which she expects to be boring as hell. Until Detective Jake Beck walks in as her instructor. Jake knows it’s a mistake to get involved with a high school senior. But their passion is undeniable. Their bond is the kind that lasts forever. Their connection is more than just lust. Jake's willing to risk it all—even when harsh betrayal and ugly secrets threaten everything.
I really enjoyed this sweet forbidden romance read.
Melanie has had a rough start in left and can't wait to leave for college, however she fall's into some trouble and is forced to take a drugs education class where she comes face to face with a familiar face- Jake- the man from her recent past who is older then her and also a cop!!
I really liked both the characters in the this story- although Melanie frustrated me that she didn't stand up for herself at times. Jake was also great and I liked how he generally wanted to help Melanie even as their feeling's grew for each other. There is also some angst thrown to keep you hooked and routing for them both. It is well written and I wanted to keep reading throughout. This is also the first book I have read by this author so I will be checking out her other books.
Overall a great romance read that I really enjoyed reading.
