Blurb:Gritty. Sexy. Taboo. Melanie Cannon is troubled, desperate, and only eighteen. Taking the fall for a friend, she’s forced into a drug education class, which she expects to be boring as hell. Until Detective Jake Beck walks in as her instructor. Jake knows it’s a mistake to get involved with a high school senior. But their passion is undeniable. Their bond is the kind that lasts forever. Their connection is more than just lust. Jake's willing to risk it all—even when harsh betrayal and ugly secrets threaten everything.
This was a first book for Maria Monroe's that I have read, and hopefully it will not be the last. The story was well thought out. The characters are rich, deep and throughly fleshed out. I think people might think the story is taboo because of the age difference, but I don't see the big deal other than she was still in high school. She is a legal adult, he is a legal adult, and though she might be young, if they had the age difference a few years later no one would think twice. Eh, take my opinion for what you will. This was a great story and I really recommend it. This is told in alternating views.
