Chance Collision (Crossing Forces) by @CASzarek #Romance #Suspense #GoodReads

The line went dead and Pete cursed under his breath. He had no choice but to wait for whatever Raleigh had. “This had better be good.”
“What had better be good? The movie?”
His gaze collided with Nikki’s gorgeous brown eyes. She was holding a bowl of popcorn. Standing in front of him in blue yoga pants and a too-tight white ribbed tank, he wanted to do a lot more to her than just wrap her in his arms and curl up with her on the couch.
“I have to grab Lee and go out, sweetness.” He stood and took the bowl from her hand, setting it down on the coffee table. Pete tugged her close and kissed her.
He’d meant it to be fleeting, a goodbye for now, then it melted into something more.
Nikki slipped her arms around his neck and moved her mouth under his until they were panting against each other and his cock was pressing against his crotch.
“Do you have to?” she whispered.
Pete cupped her cheeks and caressed her soft flushed skin with both thumbs. “Yes. Unfortunately. I won’t be gone long. I’ll have someone come stay with you.”
“I can’t go?”
“No, darlin’, I need you here, safe.”
“You’ll come home to me?”
His heart thundered. Home. To Nikki. Didn’t that appeal? “Yes, sweetness. I’m going to meet a CI. Remember the guy from the trailer park?”
She nodded, but a tremor shook her frame.
Pete rubbed up and down her arms, careful to avoid her stitches. “He has some info for me. Lee’s going to come, so I don’t want you to worry, okay?”
“How does Andi deal?” Nikki whispered.
Her brown eyes bored into his. “She watches Cole do what you do every day. But she does it, too.”
“Hey, hey.” Pete pressed a quick kiss to her mouth. “Andi has me at her back. Cole has Jared. We all have our eyes open. And we’re talking about Antioch. It’s not the big city.”
“No, but you walk into danger anyway. Shootouts and drug deals.”
“Nikki, this job is my life, and I know what I’m doing.”
Something flashed across her expression, but it was gone so fast he couldn’t read it. Her mouth slid into a hard line and she nodded. “Okay.”
He kissed her again, but she was no longer supple in his arms. What had he said to upset her? “I’ll be careful, I promise.”

Crossing Forces by C.A. Szarek

This is book two in the Crossing Forces series
Vowing to protect her had nothing to do with feelings.
Detective Pete Crane catches a new shooting case and considers it business-as-usual. But when the lead witness is the Chief of Police’s fiery assistant, he never anticipated she’d challenge him—personally and professionally. Especially while under his protection.
Little do they know, the shooting she and her grandmother witnessed was anything but random.
Thrown together, their attraction sizzles, even though she’s squarely in the no-fly zone. She makes him break every rule in his little black book.
Nikki Harper has been attracted to Pete since they met two years ago. Witnessing a brutal shooting throws her into a stigma that’s always been her greatest fear—a victim. She has no choice but to accept his protective custody and let him help save her and her beloved grandmother.
Can Pete protect his witness and solve the case, while fighting the intense heat with Nikki?
