Gritty. Sexy. Taboo.

Melanie Cannon is troubled, desperate, and only eighteen. Taking the fall for a friend, she’s forced into a drug education class, which she expects to be boring as hell. Until Detective Jake Beck walks in as her instructor.

Jake knows it’s a mistake to get involved with a high school senior.

But their passion is undeniable.

Their bond is the kind that lasts forever.

Their connection is more than just lust.

Jake’s willing to risk it all—even when harsh betrayal and ugly secrets threaten everything.

My Review:

Rough Around The Soul by Maria Monroe is a contemporary romance novel, a stand-alone.

Meet Detective Jake Beck, 25 year old, and works as cop temporary in Bells Park.
And there is Melanie Cannon, a 18 year old grade A student at high school.
Both meet and have a hot ONS.
She has to attend a drug education class and Jake’s her teacher.
He knows better than to be involved with Melanie, but their chemistry is off the charts crazy.
Both are torn about their feelings. Quote: ” I’m not the right anything for her. ”
I really, really liked this book. I liked to read about their struggle, about their feelings. Melanie is so young, desperate and in love, my heart hurt for her.
I liked the characters and I liked the writing, and mostly of all, I liked the beautiful HEA.
4,5 Stars and Thank you Maria Monroe!
