verb \ˈsāv\ 

1 a: Keep safe or rescue (someone or something) from harm or danger.

Synonyms: rescue, come to someone's rescue, save someone's life, set free, liberate, deliver, extricate.

Saving lives is the end goal.
It's a responsibility I live with every day, the reason I wear the badge.
Built on a brotherhood that runs deeper than blood, this way of life has become my very existence...

Until Liberty.

I thought I was saving her.

I never expected her to be the one saving me.

It doesn't matter who we are. What matters is what we represent

A nice change from her MC series. One thing River does best...Alpha males, sex, drama and dragging you into her story
River has so much talent that I swear she can write anything and it will be entertaining, sexy and an interesting ride! Ok lets get to this book...HETCH...freaking Hetch! The blurb says so much, but yet says so little as to what we you are getting into....

Liam Hetcherson aka Hetch is a badass, drop dead gorgeous Cop, but he's not just any cop. Oh no he's part of a high risk swat team...see badass! He's loyal, respectful, honest, but underneath all that...he has some emotional trauma. He doesn't do relationships, he has sex to clear his head from those thoughts...is it working? No. He doesn't realize that soon he will meet the one who is gonna save him….his naughty little neighbor. 

Liberty Jensen aka Lib/Birtie….works as a youth counselor for trouble boys. She runs the center called Boys Haven. She deals with anger, behavior problems, violence and other issues. She sweet, caring, selfless, and a strong chick! After a horrible breakup, she needs away from her life or living with her parents. She moves into a new apartment and doesn't take into account...thin walls. With her neighbor going at it all the time with different woman, she is going crazy. But she's also a little turned on by what she hears…
It was wrong. So wrong. But it didn't stop me from wanting. The screams. The deep grunts of pleasure. I wanted it all. I wanted it to be me.

Hetch had my heart and panties melting. He was not only hot, dirty and holy hell his job...that right there seals the deal!! I can totally picture him in all his gear...yummy! I also loved how he had a side that sometimes he kept hidden, but with the right people he showed the sweet, caring guy he was. I loved how he let his guard down, even though it starts off as just having fun, he shows Liberty the softer side of himself. Liberty can't help, but fall for him. However, painful memories of his father and moments at work give him the ammunition to run. How can he balance the two and stay sane. He has an overwhelming need for Liberty, but he will destroy her, so he needs to let her go...but can he? Liberty brought out the best in him. He never expected her to save him, he thought he would do the saving….

You crashed into my life with your jacked-up vibrator,
and your inappropriate notes, and you saved me.
You saved me when I didn’t know I needed saving.

The banter between these two was hilarious and at times laugh out loud funny. They way the meet is hella funny, both in the apartment and at the bar. That first scene in the apartment, I was saying OMG with Liberty...embarrassing, but yet hot! I loved the alpha male domineering side to Hetch even when he didn't know why he was doing it. The sexual tension between them at times...smoking hot! 

Can I take a minute to talk about the friends...Omg I want to be friends with these people. They added another element to the story and I can't wait to get some of their stories. They have some major drama too and I wonder where and if River will take them on. This is going to be an epic series, I just know it! 

All the characters are developed, the story flows flawlessly and is very entertaining. You feel the bond of all the swat guys and the bond of Liberty with her gang of friends and kids. The story felt real and I was immersed in the suspense and drama. River takes her time with her characters and gets you to care about them. She gives you well rounded individuals, who always seem to mesh well together. This was not her normal dark type read, it had some hilarious moments, and a few tear-eyed ones, but its not over the top angst. Of course its sexy as hell, but it was also a nice surprise! If you have read River's books, you will love this. If you never have this is the one to start with. I highly recommend this!

Review by Heather Driscoll


They say moments of clarity hit you hard. Like suddenly a deep understanding smacks you in the face. Your vision becomes unclouded, and a truth that’s been out of your reach rushes at you. It’s in that second your perception of reality becomes so clear you can’t begin to describe it.

Some call it beautiful, some say it can be saddening, some even compare it to the moment your drug of choice washes over you, offering a moment of escape.

I wish I could I say my moment of clarity is an epiphany or some kind of life-defining moment that showed me where my messed-up life is going.

No, my moment hits me as the first wave of the orgasm I’ve been chasing the last few minutes washes over me.

“Fuck, woman, wait for me this time.” His voice pulls me from my haze first, reminding me how messed up I am.

Heat covers my body, not from the life-altering orgasm, but from embarrassment.

Without thinking rationally, I throw my vibrator to the floor and freeze, afraid to move, as a low moan pauses on my lips. The thump of my beating heart, almost syncing in perfect rhythm to the throb drumming between my legs.

Jesus, please tell me he didn’t hear me.

“Don’t go shy on me now, babe.” He half chuckles, half growls, and even though there is a wall between us, the words wash over me; Goose bumps prickle my skin as if his warm breath whispered over me.




Slowly, as if by some freak of nature, apartment nine can see me through the wall, I roll off the bed and find myself on all fours.

Really, Liberty?

Fully committed to my actions, I slowly army crawl my way to the nearest exit.

A strong tap on the wall halts my escape followed by, “You still there?” Another wave of humiliation crashes over me when I take stock of my predicament.

If I don’t get out of here fast, I’ll be drowning in so much embarrassment, nothing will resuscitate me.

Unable to form a coherent thought, and not willing to engage with the pervert, I continue to low crawl my way out of my bedroom and into my bathroom. Closing the door, I stand, and quickly walk to the shower. After turning the faucet on, I strip the rest of my clothes off, then step under the spray of the water.

Jesus, that was close.

I have no idea what I was thinking. In fact, I know I wasn’t. Which scares me even more.

I, Liberty Jenson, would never take risks like this. If asked what prompted this change in me, I’d answer with two things.

Apartment nine.

And a self-appointed sex sabbatical.

It all started when I moved into my new apartment. At first, I was excited, ready for a fresh start. After a messy break-up, which included dealing with a douche ex who didn’t know how to keep his dick in his pants, I needed a new place. Somewhere closer to town this time, secure, and most importantly, affordable. However, finding a place close to the city, which was secure enough to make me feel safe and would still leave me enough money left over from my program director’s wage, proved to be a feat. After searching for five weeks, I was about to give up, accept defeat and move in with my mom and dad again. I mean it wasn’t the worst thing that could happen to a single thirty-year-old woman.


Luckily for me, I didn’t have to resort to such desperate measures when this place came up two weeks ago. After a quick walk through, I fell in love with the two bedrooms, one bath, and open kitchen living area. I filled out the paperwork, paid my deposit, a month’s rent in advance, and moved in five days later.

Everything seemed perfect.

That was until I realized how paper-thin the walls were between apartments.

It started out subtle, a sneeze in the early evening on my first night here as I settled into bed. A soft murmur of a man’s voice the third night.

But then came the sex.

The hot, wild, filthy sex.

The fourth night in my new apartment, I was woken to the low moans of what I assumed to be a needy woman.

My face heats up remembering the screams, the grunts. The deep baritone of apartment nine’s voice as he told the ‘bitch’ to keep it quiet.

Unsure what to do, I laid silent, listening to my new neighbor fuck some lucky woman into submission.

I’m not going to lie; I wasn’t turned on by it. I was set alight.

I never thought I would be that kind of person, the kind who got off from listening in on someone get off, but something in the way he spoke to her, something in the way he spoke to all the other women since, stirred a new want in me. Soon I found myself seeking out my room for a chance to hear him.

It was wrong.

So wrong.

But it didn’t stop me from wanting it.

The screams.

The deep grunts of pleasure.

I wanted it all.

I wanted it to be me.

“I’m officially going to hell.” I groan under the water, trying to wash the stupidity off me. Stupid would be the nice way of calling me a fucking idiot. And an idiot is what I am. Especially after tonight.
