Officer out of Uniform (Lock and Key #2) by Ranae Rose

The only thing better than a man in uniform is a man out of uniform. Sasha has never been more certain of anything in her life, and she’s never wanted anyone more than she wants Officer Henry Dryden. Tall, tough and battle-scarred, he’s the first man to capture not just her eye, but her heart. With curves and the confidence to use them, it’s not hard to attract his attention, or get him to break out those cuffs and keys. But for the first time, getting exactly what she wants feels dangerously like risking it all.

There’s no question about the one thing Henry wants most when it comes to Sasha: to protect her. After their coastal North Carolina community is sent a message via the brutal murder of the prison warden, no one is safe. Henry can’t afford to be distracted by things like the all-consuming desire Sasha inspires. There’ll be time for that later … if he can keep her from getting caught in the crossfire of a killer’s revenge scheme. Haunted by the ghosts of his past, he’ll do anything to avoid being the only one to walk out of a war zone alive again. The way forward is clear: stop the convict who’s hunting officers in Riley County, and keep Sasha safe … or die trying.

Book 2 in the Lock and Key Series.

My review:
In Officer Next Door (Lock and Key #1) we met three men (Liam, Henry and Grey) and 3 women (Alicia, Sasha and Kerry) destined to be theirs. Officer Next Door (Lock and Key #1) is Liam and Alicia’s story.   Officer out of Uniform (Lock and Key #2) is Sasha and Henry’s tale.  At first glance bright, flirty, outgoing Sasha seems to be quiet, dour, former Marine Henrys opposite.  Despite that the attraction between the two is palpable.  After the events that take place in the first book Sasha and Henry find themselves exploring their mutual attraction.  But like a bad penny the past comes to haunt them in several different ways and they find that they aren’t so different after all. 
Corrections Officer Henry Dryden was my favorite character in the first book as he reminded me of my own dear husband.  After reading this I like him even more.  Henry and Sasha are super together.  Officer out of Uniform has it all; action, intrigue, romance and really hot sex and yes there may be handcuffs involved.
