Synopsis: Who needs mistletoe?
Most people wouldn’t think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn’t most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she’s been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that—but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once . . .
Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don’t mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he’s shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly’s brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can’t believe he’s drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who’s the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he’s ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he’s been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.

Excerpt:
Joe looked behind him to make sure they were alone. “Molly and the old lady elves. What’s really going on with that?”
“Have you tried asking her yourself?”
Joe grimaced. “Look, she doesn’t belong out there doing what we do, okay? She’s … amazing, but too soft to do it.” He shook his head. “She’s always been that way, far too tender-hearted for her own good, dragging home strays, wanting to save the world. She’ll believe any sob story given to her. She loves too hard. She’ll get taken advantage of doing what we do—“
“Don’t,” Lucas said. “Don’t do that.”
“Do what?”
“Don’t belittle her. She’s not a little kid anymore, Joe. Nor is she incompetent. Far from it. In fact, she’s smart as hell. Look, a lot of bad shit happens to all of us, and our experiences have made us hard. Cold. But not her. She’s special, and stronger than both of us put together.”
This got a moment of surprised silence from Joe. And since Lucas didn’t want to fight with him, he rose and grabbed his laptop for their meeting.
“What’s going on between the two of you?” Joe asked.
Lucas turned back. “You asked me to get involved. I’m involved. And you know what? Out of all the things she loves, she loves you the most. Instead of trying to hold her back, do you know what you should be doing? You should be doing the job you asked me to do. You should be training her, letting her fly, and stand at her back while she does.”
Joe was stunned. “This is all just a phase for her, why would I do that?” “It’s not a phase. And you should do it because she would do it for you,” Lucas said. He then walked out of his own office, doing his best to shrug off his irritation at Joe.
About the Author:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jill Shalvis writes warm, funny, sexy contemporary romances and women’s fiction. An Amazon, BN & iBooks bestseller, she’s also a two-time RITA winner and has more than 10 million copies of her books sold worldwide.
Jill lives with her family in a small town in the Sierras full of quirky characters (Any resemblance to the quirky characters in her books is mostly coincidental). She does most of her writing on her deck surrounded by more animals than humans. Which is quite astonishing considering she’s a city girl who was plucked from the wilds of L.A. to the wilds of the Sierra’s. Most of her books come from a combination of hard work, cookies, and hot guy pics, and not necessarily in that order.
Jill often travels to reader weekends & conventions where she LOVES getting to meet and hang-out with readers. The only problem being she tends to get lost in her hotels. So if you ever see Jill Shalvis roaming the halls, someone please return her immediately.

Clare's 5 Star Review
This book was addictive reading right from the start and once I became invested in Aiden and Emma's story I just could not put this book down!

The Ocean Between Us is a little dark as it's content has abuse in its many various forms. Emma is a victim of physical and verbal abuse by her mother who is a sadistic alcoholic bitch, she runs away from home to the other side of the world only to fall in love and suffer once again at the hands of others. Aiden is her knight in shining armour until things fall apart and he has to try and save her.

My heart broke many times over while reading this book for Emma for all the things that she suffered at the hands of her parents and the pain that she went through while she was taken. Emma is a girl that only wanted to be loved and she never deserved what happens to her. She is a strong character that never lets others break her spirit and I loved her for not giving in when the going got tough.

This is definitely my favorite book to date that I have read by this author. The writing was so very good and the story held me captive throughout. I will definitely reading the next book in this series.
A brilliant 5 STARS!
