A wonderful collection of law enforcement romance stories. From slightly steamy to scorching. I’ve rated the different novellas from 3.5 to 5 stars. Which translates, “I liked it” up to “I loved it”, with an overall average score of 4.4 stars. Meaning I loved more books than I liked and they were all worth reading. I definitely recommend this book to romance readers who like a little heat wrapped up in a uniform.
Great dynamic between Hailey (Hellion) Ashley and Maddox (Mad) Lopez. This one has heart and steam in all the right places. (5 Stars)
Hailey’s tired of seeing men she considers her brothers nearly killed. The Navy was the one place she considered home, until now.
Maddox is used to playing cat and mouse, his job is to keep the United States safe from terrorists. However, the ends always outweighed his own needs. Only this time, with Hailey’s life hanging in the balance it wasn’t the same.
As threats escalate, and Hailey is placed under his care 24/7 will he be able to keep things professional? Or will it all fall apart as secrets are uncovered and the threats are closer than either thought?
Good story, but it dragged a bit, but worth the read. (3.5 stars)
Cat Conroy had fallen for a bad boy before and it hadn’t ended well. Scott Weston was trouble with a capital T. He claimed to be a CPA but in Cat’s experience, accountants rarely carried guns to work.
Undercover FBI agent Scott loved Cat from the moment he met her. Unfortunately, the lies he had to tell were driving them apart. Would she be able to forgive him when the truth finally came out?
Enjoyed this story immensely. Great suspense and the chemistry between Mercy and Aidan was off the charts. (4.5 stars)
English teacher Mercy Jones has sworn off men, especially the edgy ones. So why does the new substitute history teacher have to be dangerous, raw, and challenging—on every level? His uncompromising masculinity and questioning mind captivate Mercy, tempting her to risk her heart.
Detective Aidan Shaw is a cynical bastard. But when working undercover to eradicate a high school drug network, Aidan meets an intelligent, feisty blonde. Mercy’s warmth and generous spirit awaken a part of him buried deep for too long.
But as he closes in on the criminals manipulating innocents for profit, the stakes grow ever higher.
I loved this story. It made me smile, laugh, and sigh. Well written, and paced. I HAVE to read more in this series. (5 stars)
Street Justice combines a sexy alpha cop, a bohemian woman with a heart of gold, and a half-Shepard half-Poodle mix with a leg-humping need to prove who’s top dog in the neighborhood. With suspense, humor, and steamy romance Street Justice will have your alpha-cop fantasies on full alert.
This was a good story, and I really liked the Law came to realize that he needed to change his way of treating Brittin. I didn’t care to much for the sex scenes. They were too rough for my tastes. But that is just me, and the writing itself was very good and the storyline itself kept me reading. (3.5 stars)
I had no choice but to come back. I knew I’d run into Law, my bear-shifting ex, and the man I still loved. I thought I could move on.I was wrong.
Brittin is the only woman I will ever love. She is it for me, even if she broke it off. I screwed up when I lost her, and I spent the next two years regretting it. Now she’s back, and it’s my chance to show her I can be the man she deserves.
LOVED THIS STORY. Riveting. I was enthralled from beginning to end. Great characters, and chemistry. You can’t help but want more. (5 plus stars)
A divorcee whose broken dreams are buried so deep she can’t remember where she put them.
A Deputy Sheriff with a mountain of responsibilities weighing him down.
A fling. No strings attached. No plans for the future.
Until someone’s heart gets broken.
Find out how Deputy Colby Bricker and waitress Elizabeth Newcomer take their shared past and build a new future, in this sister story to the Crawley Creek Ranch Series.
I really enjoyed the give and take of this story and the characters. I thought the author did a great job on Anna and unfolding some of her hang ups, and how she needs to work past them to be truly happy. (4.5 stars)
Ethan Price thought a job as a small-town police detective in Willow Haven would be easy after five years as a pilot in the Air Force. Then a rash of break-ins puts the entire department on alert and the woman he loves at risk.
Anna Taggart is smart, stubborn, independent, and doesn’t think she needs anyone. Having her heart broken before, she refuses to give in to her feelings for Ethan no matter how hard he pursues her.
Will Ethan be able to convince Anna life is too short not to love?
Great writing and character interaction, but I felt this was more of an intro into their story then a whole story in and of itself. I would really like to see more. Like them catching or at discovering who the bad guy is. (4 stars)
When Detective Janey Davis is sent to the small town of Liberty to consult on a recently discovered John Doe, she’s paired up with Deputy Kyle Reed. She’s run into his type before—handsome, overly confident, and he has the ladies fawning all over him. It should be easy to resist her attraction to him. If only someone would tell that to her heart.
I really enjoyed this story, and both Nikolai and Harper’s characters. The storyline was good, with a few twists I definitely wasn’t expecting. I felt it was a little choppy is spots, but then it was really late when I read this one. So it could have been me. (4 stars)
Undercover FBI agent Nikolai has been treading a fine line between right and wrong for the last few years and everything he has worked for is thrown into utter chaos the moment he risks it all to save Harper. Harper’s life has just been turned upside down, and now she must rely on the one man who has been lying to her from the moment they met.
Can they overcome all the dirty lies told between them?
Very well written, smooth read, and great character interaction. LOVED this story and the characters. (5 stars)

When conditions deteriorate will these former lovers survive, let alone have the happily ever after they deserve?
I was given this boxed set in exchange for an honest review.
Here’s what readers are saying:
“It’s hotter than hell”
“You totally gave me all the feels”
“It’s good, like really good. … I cried because…this was able to pull the emotions out.“
LK Shaw Author Bio:
LK Shaw is a physical therapist assistant by day and writer/social media addict by night. She resides in South Carolina with her high maintenance beagle mix dog, Miss P, who should probably just have her own Instagram account. An avid reader since childhood, she became hooked on historical romance novels in high school. It wasn’t until within the last seven or eight years she tried her hand at contemporary romances. Some of her favorite historical romance authors include Christi Caldwell, Courtney Milan, Mary Balogh, and Tessa Dare. Some of her favorite contemporary romance authors include Julia Sykes, Ella Dominguez, Skye Callahan, and Meghan March.
She initially began writing in November 2015 as part of National Novel Writing Month, when, suddenly, the story became something more than just writing on a whim. The vision for the story snowballed and, before she knew it, she began taking steps toward publishing. Each book in her first series feature Romantic Suspense and BDSM combined.
LK loves to interact with readers. You can follow her on any of her social media:

My name is Lucian Bane, and I’m a Dom. I like to refer to myself as an ineffable Dom, and while many attribute the term ineffable to God, let me assure you the godly attribution of awe and astonishment does not apply to me, lol. I merely assume the part of the meaning unexplainable, in the sense my dominance will not be defined by tropes and customary categories. To a lot of people, I’m a complicated Dom, an intricate Dom, or confounding Dom. To my wife, I am a godly Dom.
And I think that would be the truest definition, since it is to God that I submit my dominance in obedience to His will.
I don’t want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over, I want a woman I can give myself to completely, come undone with, become one with. I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with, into that abyss of unspeakable and ineffable holy shit, that can only be found within the confines of passionate, and committed love.
I think there are many men just like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. (A map for women as well, to recognize and identify these Doms.) I want to challenge men as well to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, and not be a coward or hypocrite and withhold those things they demand or expect from a woman. For consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a woman, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you. You are both in each other and belong to each other. You are one.
As young men, our inner Doms need a master to train them. I once bowed to my inner Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gave myself to God and conformed my will to His, that inner Dom bowed to His will. The transformation made me into what I am today.
Answers to some of the questions I’m commonly asked:
Yes, there is a real-life Tara and she is my wife. (Thank you God )
While the Dom Wars game is obviously fictional, many other elements of the story are true.
Yes, I really am a man, and I really am a Dom. No, I don’t take on new subs. My only sub is my beautiful wife whom I love more than my own life.
Yes, I am writing after I finish the Dom Wars series. I’m currently working on a paranormal series as you can see and the way it’s going and the amount of ideas I have, it’s doubtful I’ll ever stop writing fiction.
My desire for privacy seems to fascinate some people, and I haven’t quite figured out why. Contrary to what we like to believe about our society, not everyone is free to do or say whatever they want. Words and actions can negatively impact family and friends. I have a responsibility to protect the people in my life from the consequences of my choices, so I will not post images or real names. I would feel terrible if my sister’s husband lost his job, or my mother was ostracized in church, or anything unpleasant happened to anyone I know simply because I write Erotica. People have enough difficulty without being presumed guilty by their associations with me.
