5 Star Review: Disturbing His Peace (The Academy #3) by Tessa Bailey

She’s got probable cause to make her move . . .

Danika Silva can’t stand Lt. Greer Burns. Her roommate’s older brother may be sexy as hell, but he’s also a cold, unfeeling robot. She just wants to graduate and forget about her scowling superior. But when a dangerous mistake lands Danika on probation—under Greer’s watch—she’s forced to interact with the big, hulking jerk. Call him daily to check in? Done. Ride shotgun in his cruiser every night? Done. Try not to climb into his giant, muscular lap and kiss him? Umm…

Greer doesn’t let anything—or anyone—distract him from the job. Except lately, all he can think about is Danika. He’s wanted the beautiful, cocky recruit since the moment he saw her. But she’s reckless and unpredictable, and Greer is painfully aware of what can happen when an officer doesn’t follow the rules. Probation seemed like a good idea, but now Danika’s scent is in his car and he’s replayed her voicemails twenty times. Christ, he’s a goner.

Danika’s melting Greer’s stone-cold exterior one ride-along at a time. Being together could have serious consequences… but breaking a few rules never hurt anybody, right?

My Review
I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

I don’t want to say Danika and Greer hate each other, but they definitely don’t see see eye to eye. Until recently Greer didn’t have much of a relationship with his brother Charlie and he’s only looked at Jack with disdain. Those two are Danika’s closest friends and you don’t mess with her friends. That's a big no no. It doesn’t help that Greer is her instructor and that immediately makes her off limits in his eyes. And of course they are both fighting the insane attraction they have to each other.

When it comes down to it, Greer is not really a complicated guy, but as I mentioned before, he certainly is a frustrating one. On the surface he seems like your typical macho cop, but underneath it all he’s just trying to cope with losing his partner. He’s extremely overprotective and more often than not, that over protectiveness just comes off as him being a massive jerk.

When he starts to open up and show Danika his sweet side, Greer is not quite sure how to handle that. There were these great moments in the book where Charlie and Jack see his facade start to crack and it was so enjoyable for them. Again, his relationship with them has never been great so it just icing on the cake for Charlie and Jack to watch Greer go down the same love path that they did.

Then to have Danika watch the same thing, but from the other side, was just as great. She definitely wasn't wrong in her initial assessment of Greer, but there was so much more to him that she didn't know existed. Throughout the book he kept surprising her. Whether it was his willingness to open up to her or just showing her a side she never knew existed in him, Danika couldn't help but fall in love with Greer.

But let's be honest, Greer is cranky AF and very frustrating, but also totally lovable and so fucking sexy. Seriously. I can’t with him. I wanted to strangle him one moment and then jump into the back seat of his patrol car with him. (Sorry Danika!) Tessa has been teasing us the last two books, especially in the last one. Danika and Greer had these moments that made me want their story something fierce. I knew it was going to be explosive and I wasn’t let down. 

Pick up the first two books in this series today!!

Disorderly Conduct

Indecent Exposure

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of ten years and six-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
