If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be as the sexy, caring, wonderful man I’ve gone and fallen in love with. I never could’ve imagined a world where he was my everything. But with each passing day, the connection between us grows stronger, and the idea of a world without him is something I can’t imagine.

But Sean’s love doesn’t come without complications. As the older brother of my lifelong best friend, this new love has caused relationships to break down and communication to become stilted, and the one question that remains is: am I willing to give up the love and friendship of one for the chance of love and forever with another?


I didn’t mean to fall in love with Alexander Thorne, my brother’s ex and the number one prime-time news anchor in the country. I mean, no one could’ve seen that coming—least of all me. But that’s exactly what happened over these past couple of months: I fell in love.

That’d be complicated enough, I suppose, but Xander? Well, he fell in love with me too, and while it’s caused some major upset in the dynamics around here, I have to believe that a love this real can only lead to somewhere amazing.

This thing between us started out as a job, a friend helping out a friend. But after playing the role of Xander’s boyfriend, I find myself wanting the job full-time, because neither of us are playing anymore.

Headlines is the final book of the Prime Time Series and should only be read after book one, Inside Affair, and book two, Breaking News.

Sometimes opposites could attract--they just had to compromise and meet somewhere in the middle. We both knew and believed that. Now if only everyone else in our life could get on board, that would amazing. 

Finally the finale for Sean and Xander! I love these two so much! Now after all of the major events of the last two books they are getting back to real life, heading back to work, and dealing with the fallout from their relationship being exposed...most notably to Sean's brother and Xander's best friend/ex-boyfriend, Bailey. He is not taking it so well. And they both are struggling with guilt, regrets, and fear that Bailey's response will either ruin their relationships with him or worse end up tearing them apart. And they also now fodder for gossip and speculation in all aspects of their lives. They are definitely not hiding anything anymore. 

These guys have come a long way and finally seem to know what they want. But at the same time, they do not want to hurt anyone, damage their careers, or destroy longtime relationships. So they will be faced with choices and have to decide what is most important. 

This one frustrated me a bit. Well, one character mostly was seriously annoying me. But I completely adore Sean and Xander and had faith they would be able to fix the situation. But this drove the most emotional plotline for this part of their story.

I have loved the growth of these two during this trilogy both individually and as a couple. These two seemed like such opposites at the beginning of their journey but have learned to give and take and be true to themselves. Detective Dick has become his softer version of Sean and is such a more healthy, open, happy, put-together, and loving person. His walls have been shattered and he is actually finally living and enjoying life. And previously playboy and work-a-holic Xander has learned to slow down and enjoy life and understand what a real connection with someone can bring. These two are sweet, tender, sarcastic, and so freakin' hot together. I love how they challenge each other and bring out the best in the other. Their bond is so real and their chemistry is scorching. They have definitely become one of my fave couples from this author. 

I have enjoyed each installment getting to know them better and loved seeing how their story played out. I hope we might see one or two more of the side characters show up in later books.

If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be: a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. Never in that equation would I ever include the word boyfriend—and not just because he’s straight.

The older brother of my life-long best friend, Sean is a detective for the Chicago PD, and is also known as Detective “Dick” for being...well, a surly, temperamental pain in everyone’s ass. He also happens to be the best they have, which is why I find myself on his doorstep the night my life is threatened by an anonymous stalker.

I only wanted the name of a bodyguard; I didn’t expect for Sean to volunteer for the job. Now, not only do I have a bodyguard, I also have a fake boyfriend.


It must be so hard to be Alexander Thorne, the number one prime-time news anchor in the country, with millions of dollars and a car that costs more than my house. I mean, I’m allowed to give him a hard time about it, but when some creep decides to cross the line and go after him, they’re gonna have to answer to me.

Going undercover has never been an issue in the past, so I don’t see why there’d be a problem now. Xander and I have known each other for years, so this should be a breeze. Except suddenly my stomach’s flipping when he looks my way, and my body comes alive whenever he brushes by me. I know I’m good at my job and playing a character and all, but this is getting out of hand.

I can’t be sure that either of us are playing anymore.

Breaking News


Sean Bailey, the older brother of my lifelong best friend, has always been a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. But sometime during the last few weeks, I’ve gone and fallen head over heels for him. 

Gruff and charming, charismatic in his own way, I’ve found myself looking past my preconceptions and discovered a whole new side to Detective Dick—a side I could fall in love with.

But life isn’t always easy—it can change course in the blink of an eye. Sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad. I know this because last night I experienced both sides.

I went to Sean for help in guarding my body; what I didn’t expect was for him to steal my heart.
