Police officer Randy Railsback has quite the reputation with the ladies. Therefore he isn’t the only one surprised at his attraction to and protective nature for one of his self-defense students. Normally his types of women are the ones that are only looking for a good time like he is. And that definitely does not fit Helena.

Helena has one reason for taking self-defense classes and it isn’t to cozy up to the teacher! But she cannot deny the draw that Randy holds. But her goal is to get revenge against her rapist. Can they stop the man who attacked her before he discovers she is out to get him and he comes to finish her off?

This book is thoroughly enjoyable. It is good to see a man just looking for nothing but a good time, become smitten with that special woman, even if he is basically a good man. I am not a fan of womanizers and men with such reputations. And I giggled for a while when Helena didn’t fall at his feet as he is used to. Ms McSparren did a very good job penning this storyline. But of course, the reason behind Helena and Randy meeting is because Helena was brutalized in the worse possible way for a woman. This is a very sad, yet well written part of the story. And BACHELOR COP is a story with a message. The author shows how such a traumatic event can affect a person’s life for a long time.

BACHELOR COP is a very worthwhile read and I am very glad this book came my way for review and I hope readers will get something from it as I did.
