Title: Marina: A Kelly Family Novella (Kelly Family)
Author: Lashell Collins
Published Date: April 2014
***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Marina Kelly is sick to death of cops! That’s all she’s known her entire life – her father is a cop, her uncle was a cop. All of her cousins are cops. Even her two brothers and her big sister … all cops. So Marina decided early on that her life would take a much different path, taking her as far away from that lifestyle as she could get. And dating a cop is totally out of the question!
Levi Hawks is well aware of Marina’s ‘no cops’ dating rule, so when a supposed chance meeting brings him face-to-face with the sexy shop owner, Levi is determined to hide the fact that he’s a police detective from her for as long as he possibly can. Or at least until he can get her to agree to go out with him!
Enter Levi. He’s a detective which makes him a cop. Levi is incredibly attracted to Marina and doesn’t understand her “no cops” rule. He asks her out on a date but omits that he’s a cop, trying to win her by letting her get to know him instead of his job. It works…until a break-in happens at Marina’s business. To say that it’s not the way he wanted her to find out is an understatement.
In this story, you get to know Marina. You get to know why she ticks the way she does, as well as why she doesn’t want to date cops. While Storm is my favorite male character of this series, I think Marina has become my ultimate favorite. She doesn’t back down and she doesn’t run away crying when she meets challenges. You will see lots of similarities between her and Frankie, but what makes Marina ultimately different is her ability to break away from the family tradition of going into the police academy and choosing her own path.
