Borrowed Time by Diane Benefiel is now live! + My Review

Undercover, Jon rents the apartment above his prime suspect’s home and learns she’s not who she seems, but she’s dangerously enticing.


Rane Smith has a secret. A big one she can’t ever reveal without compromising her father. 
Jon Garretson also has a secret. The undercover cop moves into an apartment above prime suspect Rane Smith’s home. He’s on the trail of justice, but he’s also helping his brother get payback. 
Jon discovers Rane is not who she seems to be, and that the drug lord Jon’s working to take down also has Rane in his sights. 
Complicated past relationships keep Rane from revealing any truths, even when she’s beginning to trust Jon. Then she learns he’s been deceiving her – that he’s really an undercover cop – and that trust is shattered.
Fighting a desperate battle on three fronts, Jon must protect Rane, win back her trust, and build a case against the powerful drug lord.
Jon’s fallen for the stubborn beauty. He’ll put his life on the line to keep her safe, and hopes his heart is the only casualty.

Suspense, danger and romance. This is a quick, easy read with interesting characters in cop’s daughter and ER nurse, Rane, and undercover hunk, Jon. The setup has Jon living in the upstairs apartment of Rane’s home while investigating her ties to the local drug lord. It moves fast with his cover blown and a fast lane to romance for Rane and Jon. Both have secrets that come out during the investigation. The danger ramps up as Rane’s ex is in the mix and the drug lord is in the know. The suspense was sort of cookie cutter and the romance on the light side. I liked the characters and Jon’s cop brother, Nathan. There’s a future story with Nathan and Rane’s bestie Lily. An exciting read that kept my interest with a few twists and danger as the cops and the baddies fight it out.
