Review: Burnout (NYPD Blue & Gold #1) by Tee O'Fallon

*****5 Stars*****

The story itself I won't rehash to much. Cassie Yates has been undercover for a while in a sleazy nightclub. When the operation is done and dusted and Cassie decides to take off for a break, it seems a hit gets put on her head. Cassie ends up in the town of Hopewell Springs where she meets the town cop Mike Flannery. Mike was unlucky in love before and was used so he has vowed never to love again, well until he meets Cassie but with secrets in the air and things going wrong in town can he walk away?
You know when they say being able to write a book and do it well on a your debut is a talent? Well this author for me has smashed it because I couldn't put this down. Burnout is Tee O'Fallons debut book it's written in third person which normally puts me off but this has been done effortlessly.
I loved this book it kept me drawn in and I didn't want to put it down. The lead characters were strong and easy to like and the side characters played a good enough part to invest in them and to want to know more. The writing flowed well and I would never have been able to tell this was a first for this author if I hadn't looked her up. There was a few hot scenes in this book that were very well written and not cringeworthy at all and I definitely think this is an author to watch out for as I certainly will be reading more as she writes it. This is definitely one for your tbr.

Sexy-as-sin Police Chief Mike Flannery knows the new arrival to Hopewell Springs is trouble. She has a smoking-hot body and a quick wit…and he’ll be damned if that’s not a turn-on. But this former NYPD cop and small-town heartthrob has been burned before, and there’s no way he’ll let that happen again.

New York City Detective Cassie Yates is on the run. A six-month undercover sting in a sleazy bar seemed like a textbook arrest—but now there’s a hit out on her. Armed with fake ID, her K-9 companion, and a police-issued SUV, she flees to a quiet upstate town where she trades her badge and gun for a spatula, finally finding peace in the dream she tossed aside to follow her family into law enforcement.

There’s no denying the fire and ice between them. But as the hired assassin closes in, Mike’s past comes roaring back and secrets are revealed in an explosion destined to tear them apart—if not destroy them.
