FIRST SENTENCE: If the SOB said the Bulls "was robbed" one more time, Jack was going to get his gun and shoot the damn television.

SUMMARY: [From the back of the book] When a child was dropped on ex-detective Jack McCabe's doorstep, he vowed to guard her with his life. She had no one to claim here - except sexy caregiver Hailey Bishop. And both vulnerable ladies needed his protection from killers tying up loose ends - killers who might be dirty cops...

Jack worried the wasn't the right man for this job - not since the accident that had stripped him of his badge, his life. But together they formed a fugitive family, working to keep one another safe... and Jack felt whole for the first time in years. Maybe he was the one who'd been found and rescued after all.

REASON FOR READING: Must. rid. self. of. Harlequins.

THOUGHTS: Author thinks, "How can I get two people together in close quarters, have the marry, and get a kid all within 250 pages? I know, I'll come up with an insane plot involving the mafia and dirty cops that is never fully fleshed out, wrapped up hastily at the end, and involves the hero having a back story about taking a bullet to the hip. And my heroine! She must be carrying and curvy. Perfect."

Gag.

MISCELLANEOUS: I have now matched my "books read" from last year.

KEEP/SHARE/CRINGE(?): PBS.com
RATING: 1/10 [Don't waste your time / Awful]
