Along for the Ride by Michelle Pillow


New York City police detective Megan Matthews is cursed with always being right. Her instincts are good, her deductive reasoning even better. She’s found her hard-headed way to be too much for most men, so she’s given up trying to find Mr. Right and has settled for arresting Mr. Wrong.

Easy on the eyes crime-scene photographer Ryan Lucas has had a crush on the sexy detective since he first took her photograph by accident at a crime scene. That picture became headline news, and she hasn’t talked to him since. He’s tried everything to get her attention, but when nothing works he’s left with only one option. But is blackmailing a cop into marriage really a good idea.

Along for the Ride is the second book in the Matthews Sisters series, which began with the book Bit by the Bug, but you can certainly read and enjoy it without having read the first book. I love the family dynamics in this book. It only goes to prove that sisters can be very scary people sometimes.

The characters are all people that could live next door or down the street. They are wonderfully quirky and have faults and problems like the rest of us. Both Megan and Ryan are less than perfect people who are just trying to figure out how to make relationships work. Their work relationship has been strained, hardly conducive to falling in love.

This book is a fun ride from start to finish.
Published by Virgin Books, you can check out this book when it hits the bookshelves on October 16th!
