Review: Frisk Me (New York's Finest #1) by Lauren Layne

Officer Luc Moretti had no idea that his dive into the East River would have him drowning in a media frenzy. No matter how many times he tells reporters he was just doing his job, they're determined to make him into NYC's newest hero. Coming from a long line of NYPD's finest, Luc knows that being a cop has nothing to do with headlines and viral videos, and he's more than ready to get back to life away from the cameras—until he meets the gorgeous but jaded journalist assigned to film a TV special on him.

Ava Sims may be the only woman in NYC who isn't in love with Officer Moretti. That's why she's going after the real story—to find out about the man behind the badge. Ava's determined to keep things strictly professional, but the more time she spends around Luc, even she has to admit there's something about a man in uniform . . . and she can't wait to get him out of his.


Luca is a reluctant hero and Ava is the reporter who is determined to expose him as a fraud. Luca didn't set out to be a hero ... he was just doing what any compassionate person would do and it's not his fault that there always seems to be someone filming him when he's just being nice. He didn't ask to be a hero and he sure as hell doesn't want the stigma that seems to come with that label. He wants to be just a normal cop. Ava is waiting for her shot at the big time and she thinks that Luca is the key to her success. What could be better than bringing a hero down amidst a scandal but what if Luca really is the hero that the public is making him out to be ... 

It's been a while since I've read a book that grabbed me from the very first page. I don't think I even made it to the end of the first page and I knew that Frisk Me was going to be good. I had high hopes for this one because I thought that the blurb sounded pretty interesting and I NEEDED this book to be good. I've been in a massive book funk for the past two months and nothing seemed to crack it. Until this one. I found myself staying up super late just so that I could finish a chapter. And then the next one and the next one. I absolutely loved all of the characters that Lauren Layne created. I think that all of them played a really important part in the plot and there weren't any that I was wondering why in the hell they were included or excluded for that matter. 

The plot was fabulous, there weren't any slow parts or sections that shouldn't be included because they were boring or unimportant. Everything was just ... great. I really don't know what else to say at this point. Frisk Me was great and Lauren Layne is now one of my favorite authors. I'm also super excited for the next novel in this series. I'm telling you, it better be as awesome as this first one or I will be totally pissed. I have super high expectations for anything from this author now. No pressure.
