About the Book:
Cristian Bianco has two things against him—he’s a police officer and he’s a police officer in the 18th District…meaning my dad is his boss. Growing up as the Commander’s daughter and having his magnifying glass focused on everything I did was more than I could handle. Now, I’m out on my own, living by my own rules. Well, mostly. The ‘job’ I created for myself has me in some hot water and my exit strategy isn’t exactly working out how I’d hoped. Which is why when my best friend bids on Cristian for me at a charity bachelor auction, I’m not having it. A man in blue is only going to be one thing for me—a problem. Except after his brother starts dating my best friend he becomes harder to ignore. The eight-pack abs. The sense of style only a girl like me can appreciate. The way he puts his family first. It all adds up to make him one irresistible prospect and has me wondering if he knows how to use those handcuffs the right way—by locking my wrists to his headboard.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Cristian Bianco is one of Chicago’s finest; police officer and male specimen. Not only does he have a steady job, he comes from a warm Italian family, and he, himself, has a heart of gold. He is kind, considerate, thoughtful, and not the one-night-stand type. He’s in it for the long haul and he wants Vanessa Flannigan. Vanessa, however, has other ideas.
Vanessa Flannigan won Cristian in a charity bachelor auction courtesy of her best friends. She’s not the relationship type, though, especially with a police officer, since she grew up with a police officer father, one who is Cristian’s boss. Oh, she’s attracted to Cristian, but she refuses to allow herself the chance to really get to know, consistently pushing him away. Her character is very independent and has a hard time accepting help. Her past, however, is catching up to her and help is exactly what she needs. Will she accept the help from a hot cop who wants nothing more than to protect and love her?
I knew I had to read Crushing on the Cop just as soon as I read the synopsis. A hot police officer from an upstanding Italian family and his boss’s daughter with a dark secret had me intrigued. I was not at all disappointed. Crushing on the Cop is the first book I’ve read by Piper Rayne, and let me tell you, it will not be the last. The characters are three dimensional and expressive. The world building is crafted so well that not only could I visualize everything, I felt like I was there.
The chemistry between Cristian and Vanessa is amazing, palpable, and realistic. Cristian is persistent in his pursuit and Vanessa is just as determined to keep the wall up around her heart. I love the way Cristian is able to chip away at that wall and show Vanessa that she doesn’t have to life her life alone, always pushing people away. Their interactions are cute, and I loved the witty banter. I truly enjoyed Crushing on the Cop.
