My POV Protecting What's His by Tessa Bailey

Kindle Edition, 273 pages
Published February 23rd 2013 by Entangled Publishing (Brazen) 
 She’s running from the law, and the law wants her bad.

The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds—$50,000 to be exact—could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...

Turns out, Chicago has some pretty hot cops. Hot, intense, naughty-lookin’ cops like Derek Tyler, who looks like he could eat a girl up and leave her begging for more. And more. Tempting as he is, getting involved with the sexy homicide lieutenant next door poses a teensy problem for a gal who’s on the lam. But one thing is certain—Derek’s onto her, and he wants more than just a taste.

And as far as he’s concerned, possession is nine-tenths of the law.--Goodreads 


Ginger Peet is 23 years old and lives in Nashville with her 17 year old sister Willa. They both have had a hard life and Ginger has had to to take care of her sister Willa because they can not depend on their irresponsible mother Valerie that doesn't worry about anyone but herself. Ginger finds an opportunity to get her sister and herself out of Nashville and away from their mother and she takes it. Ginger and Willa move to Chicago into an apartment complex where they move across the hall from the sexy Lieutenant Derek Tyler. 
Neither Derek nor Ginger have a very good first impression of each other, but one thing they do feel is an attraction to one another. Ginger, being the person that she is is trying her best to ignore Derek. She thinks everything is going smoothly now with there new lives until she's in bed one day and her whole ceiling caves in and her whole apartment gets flooded with water. Derek takes Ginger and Willa in and moves them into his apartment while there apartment gets fixed (can they keep there attraction to each other hidden while living in the same apartment?) Of course the answer to that is no. 
Ginger knows that she's falling for Derek and she doesn't want anything from her past to ruin her future so she decides to go back to Nashville by herself and clear up some misunderstandings because she doesn't want this to ruin her relationship with Derek. Little does Ginger know that Derek already knows what's going on (him being a cop and everything). When Derek finds out that Ginger went back to Nashville he knows that he now has to find her and rescue her before she gets killed. OMG I was waiting to see what would happen, I was hoping the whole time that Derek made it in time to save Ginger.
You are now going to have to read this book to find out what happens at the end. Let me just say that the author did a great job with this whole book. Can't wait to read more books from this author.
