    a great suspenseful romance

    This was a romantic story. It shows that people can fall in love by actions and not physical actions. Then the cutest little girl is in the mix and it just makes for the perfect story. Oh and don't forget all the can't wait to see what happens next with the action going on around the romance.

    The best entry in the series!

    With Bullet Proof, LK Shaw continues her Love Undercover series that began with In Too Deep. Following the life and loves of a family of latinx law enforcement officers in Chicago, the books series have provided readers with a delightful mix of heart-stopping action and heart-palpitating romance. Bullet Proof is no different. In fact, Bullet Proof may be the best entry in the series to date. This book focuses on Pablo, a police detective and member of the multi-generation law enforcement Rodriquez family; and Michele, the twenty-year-old single mom of four-year old Maisie. When the book opens, Pablo is severely wounded leading a police raid on drug dealers. Several months later, Pablo’s physical wounds have mostly healed, but he no longer feels the invincibility that led him to take the reckless actions that got him shot in the first place. He has a greater sense of his own vulnerability, even as he chafes at desk duty. Enter Michele, introduced in an earlier book as the stripper friend of Pablo’s sister Inez, herself a cop. Here, she’s no longer a stripper, but is working as an LPN while studying to become an RN. Her only desire is to provide Maisie with a better life than she can currently. Michele has wounds herself--pregnant at fifteen, thrown out onto the street by her wealthy family, having had to survive as best she could while raising a daughter alone. She’s a strong, independent woman, and we instantly root for her. A chance meeting at a swimming pool brings Pablo and Michele, who met briefly in an earlier book, together and gets their story rolling. She’s instantly attracted to him, though is hesitant to admit it to herself due in no small part to a previous bad relationship. Pablo, for his part, is aware of his attraction to Michele, but is hesitant because of the age gap between them--he’s fifteen years her senior, and he can’t conceive that someone her age would be attracted to him. With two people so hesitant to seize what’s right in front of them, Bullet Proof could have easily devolved into an excruciating game of “will they or won’t they,” as readers scream at the page for them to get on with it and declare their love for each other. But Shaw keeps that from happening in a most unexpected way. As the saying goes, “and a little child shall lead them.” More than any other character in the book, it’s four-year-old Maisie that’s the real glue that brings our couple together. It’s true that the scenes between Pablo and Michele spark with sexual tension and chemistry from the beginning. But the scenes between Pablo and Maisie are nothing short of heartwarming and left this reviewer, a father and grandfather, with a smile and a tear. It’s his interaction with her daughter that helps Michele overcome her initial hesitancy about bringing another man into her daughter’s life. For Pablo, Maisie helps him realize that he can still be the strong protector he was before he got shot, and that she and Michele are something he needs in his life. As with the earlier books, Bullet Proof has an ample dollop of action and suspense. There’s the undercover operation against a Chicago drug gang Pablo overseas. There’s a drive-by shooting that takes place outside Michele’s apartment, putting both her and her daughter in harm's way. There’s a police raid led by Pablo, a book-end to the one that opened the book, that shows him transformed from the reckless loner with a sense of invincibility to the much wiser man who now has something to lose. Since this is a romance, there are of course some sexy times. Those scenes are effective in conveying the passion that Pablo and Michele have for each other, even as Shaw manages a little bit of humor as they both have to moderate their enthusiasm in order not to wake Maisie in the other room. Any couple with children can appreciate their predicament. In all, Shaw provides fans with a worthy addition to her series. If you haven’t read the other books, you can still read and appreciate Bullet Proof. But doing so will only make you want to pick up the other books in the series. This reviewer was provided an ARC by the author.

    This is one of LK’s best books yet!

    I read this book in one sitting as I could not put it down as I was so drawn into Pablo and Michele’s story. Pablo is a cop who used to risk his life until a bullet slowed him down and has him being more cautious upon his return to work. Michele is a single mom struggling to get by with no family and a friend of Pablo’s sister. Michele is being harassed by a tenant on her floor so his sister asks him to check in on her. As Pablo and Michele spend time together, they start to enjoy life’s pleasures. But what will happen when Pablo’s work seemingly erupts around them? You have to read to find out.

    Great read

    This was a great story with likeable characters and a well-paced plot. There was a good balance between romance and drama. I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

    I loved Pablo and Michele's story

    Pablo is the oldest of the Rodriguez siblings. He works in homicide and has always been a thrill seeker. Until he is injured. Months later, he is apprehensive about returning to active duty on the streets. But the time has come. Michele is a single mom. She and her daughter have only had each other since she became pregnant. She has done the best that she could since then and each year gets better and better for them. She has been single for a while needing to put her baby first before any man. Pablo and Michele’s story was awesome. I am enjoying this series so much. I am looking forward to the next one.
