    I thoroughly enjoy reading romantic suspense and this is another great example of the genre The fact that it involves a teacher, Joanna Barnes, protesting her innocence despite lots of evidence to the contrary made it even better for me I found it so easy to relate to Joanna and was so glad her best friend s brother, Mingus Black, also believed her and sought to help prove her innocent It is an intricate plot with plenty of red herrings and surprises.The main characters are well developed and their romance potent but this doesn t detract from a range of superbly portrayed secondary characters, too The Blacks are such a great, loving family and Mingus is somewhat of a rule breaker, never doing things quite as the others would anticipate but they still all love and support each other no matter what It is a story full of intrigue, misdirection and love, a real page turner to keep you on the edge of yo...

    Tempted by the Badge follows the misadventures of Joanna Barnes, the straitlaced schoolteacher who gets accused of sexually assaulting one of her pupils and the investigations of the private investigator, Mingus Black whose job it is to find the evidence to clear her name.The romance From the moment these two met on the page, there was never any doubt that they would get together Their attraction to each other was obvious the moment they clapped eyes on each other And Mingus believed she was innocent so there really was no conflict The only thing that kept them apart were the accusations levelled against her and his dogged need to investigate and clear her name.So the romance was pretty easy and sweet Mingus was a stand up guy and her rock to lean on when things got too much for her to cope I did wonder, though, for a guy that was billed as the rebel of the Black family, Mingus never broke any rules when it came to his relationship with Joanna I mean they didn t even share a first kiss until almost 60% into the story.The suspense I was pretty intrigued by the premise of a female teacher being accused of sexual deviancy The story line was solid and hooked me from the first chapter Things heated up quickly as the rug was pulled from under Joanna s feet The story line flowed steadily and felt realistic.However, things took ...

    Tempted by the Badge by Deborah Fletcher Mello is the second book in the To Serve and Seduce miniseries I read it as a standalone and didn t have issues keeping track of the story Overall, I enjoyed this romantic suspense that really caught my attention in the first half However, the second half lagged a bit for me and I thought the resolution seemed a little too tidy.Beloved high school history teacher Joanna Barnes stands accused of a horrible crime One of her students is accusing her of having a sexual relationship with him and claims to have evidence to back it up Joanna is blindsided she knows she s innocent, but even she admits that the supposed evidence appears pretty damning She turns to her good friend Simone for help, who enlists the help of Simone s brother, former cop turned private investigator, Mingus Black Sidebar I really cannot stand the name Mingus Later in the book, I realized that all of the Black family siblings are named after jazz and blues musicians Armstrong, Simone, Ellington But wow, I just coul...

    Tempted by the Badge is an engaging romantic suspense Joanna is a teacher at a high school in Chicago, who is hearing rumors that a teacher is about to get arrested for having an affair with a student She is completely shocked when it turns out to be her, considering she would never cross that line Luckily, Mingus, a private investigator, believes her and is willing to work her case As he tracks down the evidence and gets to the truth of the matter, the case is even bigger than expected.The mystery of the book is intense and paced very well to keep the pages turning I m generally not a fan of stories that have false police reports based on sexual assault mainly because such a thing is very rare and the presence in books and such make it seem prevalent than it is, casting doubt on actual victims If I push that concern aside, the suspense and mystery of the case ke...
