Also in this series: Misadventures with a Professor
Senior Detective Cat Day has one hard and fast rule about dating: no cops. They live hard and die young—a truth she’s faced every day since her fiancé’s tragic death several years ago. But when rookie Jace Sutton shows up to work the same burglary investigation, she feels desire she hasn’t felt in years. Jace knows what he wants the minute Detective Day strolls onto his crime scene in heels and a pencil skirt tailored by God himself. He wants to thaw the legendary Ice Queen, and it only takes one hot, dirty night for Jace to realize he wants more. Much, much more. But more is the last thing Cat wants from any cop—especially a playboy rookie like Jace. As the burglary investigation heats up and he repeatedly puts himself in danger, Cat must ask herself if Jace will be as reckless with her heart as he is with his life.

Detective Catherine Day is well respected in her field. But this hasn’t stopped the whispers about her. Referred to as the Ice Queen, accusations of being frigid and closed off, hurt. But she hasn’t been able to move forward since the death of her partner, until him.
“His combination of strength and power and youth—that thrill of seeing a man so young and virile vibrate with such restrained intensity.”
Police Rookie Jace Sutton has moved back to his home town eager to put down some roots after a stint in the army. Sensible and old beyond his years has him looking for less complications and stability. But even he can’t resist the lure of her.
When meeting over a case, it sees Cat acting out of impulsiveness by putting herself out there for a one night stand. Even if she questions her sanity the moment the words are uttered from her mouth.
“What if—oh, this is a big one—what if this young man doesn’t like my definitely-a-woman-in-her-thirties body?”
Where Cat is looking for uncomplicated pleasure, she will quickly realise that Jase may be young but he’s no pushover. He has no intention of just being used and thrown to the curb. Especially when it is clear that their hearts are involved.
Misadventures in Blue is an age gap romance between an older woman and a younger man where roles are reversed. It will take Cat to grow the metaphorical balls to go after exactly what she wants regardless of her insecurities. This was an enjoyable read, and as always with a Sierra Simone book, maybe don’t read it in public because you’re going to need some personal relief…
“I’m not sure what else he wants until his hand gives my ass a quick crack and then just as quickly finds my clit. Then I know. He wants more from me. He wants me wild. He wants me to come.”
