Book Review: Officer Next Door (Lock and Key Book 1) by Ranae Rose

Alright, half naked man on the cover, muscles, and handcuffs. Check! That is certainly one way to get attention and set the tone for what is going to be happening inside the covers, pun totally intended.

The book begins with Alicia watching her neighbor, Liam, in the shower. I'm not sure how close houses need to be in order to see the kind of detail she can make out, but she loves his tattoo!

She's a wedding planner, he's a security guard. The plot is predictable to a point. A couple of prisoners escape and he doesn't want her to stay alone, so he stays with her until she needs to stay with him. Sprinkle in a little supernatural ghost help and...you get the picture.

I haven't read the other two books in the series yet, but they are with his two friends and, conveniently enough, her two friends that had all met during an improvised cookout.

I would have liked a bit of unpredictability to the story to keep it more interesting. Also, when it got really exciting near the end, the writing became confusing and I had to read it a few times to be able to follow where the main character was.
