Mike Murphy is the new cop in town.
He makes me crazy in all the right ways.
So crazy that I lose my filter around him, not to mention my ability to function like a normal person.
The attraction between us is undeniable and something we can’t ignore.
But there’s a secret that threatens to come between us. When we uncover more than we should, things become dangerous.
Will we be able to walk away or will the quest to find the truth be too tempting?
I was about to head upstairs when my doorbell rang again.
Looking at the peephole, I saw nothing, but I heard a dog barking. I opened the door, and the little boxer puppy Mike had found sat on my front porch, wrestling with a Kong filled with peanut butter. “What are you doing here?”
I looked around but saw no one. Finally, I heard a bell ringing from the side of the house. Mike stepped onto the porch, holding his phone in one hand and a pizza box in another. “This was the best I could do as a warning bell on short notice.”
I burst out laughing. “You must think I’m crazy.”
My grin widened. “I think I much prefer that adjective.”
Do not fall. Do not fall. I repeat—do not fall.
“Maggie Maye and I thought you might be hungry after moving all day.”
On cue, my stomach growled. “I think you two might be right.” The boxer took off inside. I raised my eyebrow. “Maggie Maye? You named the dog?”
“Yeah, I’m screwed.” Mike laughed, running his free hand through his hair.
I never thought I’d want anyone to be separated from their pet, but I hoped we never found the little boxer’s owner.
He took a deep breath. “Have you heard from anyone about Mags?”
At his question, Maggie Maye looked up at me.
“No, nothing. We’ve called the local hotels, too. And no one has checked for her at the local shelters, either.”
Seemingly satisfied with my response, Maggie Maye picked up her Kong and took it in front of the fireplace where she kept chewing on it to get at the peanut butter inside. “Come on in.”
We walked into the living room, and I pointed to the table. “Things are still a mess, so ignore that. Let me get some water. Or do you want wine? I don’t have much and tomorrow I plan to go to the grocery store.”
“Water works great.”
I found two clean glasses and filled them from the fridge dispenser. Mike followed me into the kitchen where he got paper plates and napkins from the counter.
The pizza smelled delicious. “Perfect timing. I was starving.”
“And my warning bell worked. So far today, you’ve had zero accidents in my presence.”
I threw my head back. “I’m never going to live down the last few days, am I?”
“Good thing the most embarrassing things have stayed put in my mind.” My eyes widened, and Mike cocked his head to the left. “Forget I said anything.”
He leaned in. “I’ll let you in on a little secret…”
“What’s that?” My voice was barely a whisper.
“I’m just as affected, Sydney.”
