New York City Detective Cassie Yates is on the run. A six-month undercover sting in a sleazy bar seemed like a textbook arrest—but now there’s a hit out on her. Armed with fake ID, her K-9 companion, and a police-issued SUV, she flees to a quiet upstate town where she trades her badge and gun for a spatula, finally finding peace in the dream she tossed aside to follow her family into law enforcement.
There’s no denying the fire and ice between them. But as the hired assassin closes in, Mike’s past comes roaring back and secrets are revealed in an explosion destined to tear them apart—if not destroy them.
Burnout by Tee O'Fallon
Cassie has followed in her family’s foots steps becoming a detective but she’s always dreamed of becoming a chef. When a small town dinner’s chef quits, she takes up the mantle and impresses the tough as nails boss. This gives Cassie the perfect opportunity to fly under the radar you see…Cassie is a NYC undercover detective and is in a self-imposed “witness protection”. While on the job, she is a witness to criminal actions that have painted a big target on her head. Worst thing is someone in her precinct has ratted her out, so she isn’t sure who she can trust other than her brother and partner. When Cassie stumbles into the cooking position, she takes matters into her own hands and finds this sleepy little town the perfect place to hide out in.
Cassie never anticipating falling for the town’s police chief, nor did she think they’d welcome her as one of their own. Guilt ridden by having to keep her true identity a secret, Cassie struggles with new friendships and the highly combustible reaction she has to Mike Flannery.
Burnout is a well written romantic suspense that is wonderfully paced to keep you guessing. The story is slow growing with a strong but thoughtfully conceived relationship between the main characters.
What seemed to really capture my attention was the secondary characters, leaving me to believe O’Fallen has much more to come. My first read from O'Fallen but it won't be my last.
