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.

It has taken me very little time to become a huge Lauren Layne fan and I am steadily devouring her various series. Frisk Me is the first book in Lauren Layne's New York's Finest series. It is quite a bit different from her Sex, Love and Stilettos series but it is obviously a contemporary romance. While I did not love the romance itself in this book I really enjoyed the story as a whole.
Officer Luc Moretti has been termed as a hero because of his actions. Now he has Ava and he team doing a special on him and the NYPD on national television. I liked Luc. He was actually very frustrated being tagged the hero. He lived with the guilt of losing his partner and not being able to save a little girl. He just wanted to do his work peacefully but Ava definitely had other plans.
Ava is our heroine. She has lived her entire life under the pressure of her parents and siblings. She thinks that doing the TV special on Luc and the NYPD is her chance to shine and get up the ladder. I liked Ava but she was not one of my favourite heroines. She was trying hard to be someone her family expected but Luc helps her find herself.
Ava and Luc definitely start off their relationship with a lot of arguments. They have no choice but to work with each other but soon they start understanding the other person behind the facade. I liked Luc and Ava's romance. Lauren Layne definitely knows how to translate chemistry on paper and it was easy to see it between Luc and Ava.
But what I loved the most in Frisk Me is the whole Moretti clan. I loved how unapologetic each one was about interfering in the other's personal life. They were a strong family who protected their members. I especially liked Nonna and I'm looking forward to Anthony's story next. Frisk Me was a good read.
