Title: I Broke Into His Office
Series: Love at Frist Crime Series
Author: Jessica Frances
Genre: M/M Romantic Suspense Standalone
He broke into his office, and had his heart stolen in return.
I broke into his office,
But I didn’t have a choice.
So what if he is good-looking?
So what if he is single?
So what if he is my type?
Why should it worry me that he could easily overpower me?
Who cares if what I’m doing is wrong and illegal?
I can’t second-guess myself, even if there is the possibility of more between us.
The risk is too great.
The threat all too real.
Unfortunately, my life is about to implode,
And the least of my problems is an irate private investigator.
When old threats return,
And new threats—mainly four scary women—attack,
The best thing I can do is just keep my head down and ride it out.
Then, why can’t I stop thinking about him?
Why do I find him so irresistible?
And what happens if I make one mistake and lose him forever?
Because this is quickly becoming far more than either of us could have ever imagined,
And the life and death stakes mean neither of us can mess up.
I can’t believe breaking into his office has led to all this.
Then again, as some people say: there is nothing quite like love at first … crime.

Let me begin my saying that I Broke Into His Office needs to be at the top of your must read list for 2018.
It is by far THE best crime drama I've ever read. It is very well written and quite engrossing.
Before I talk about the main characters Nix (short for Phoenix) and Harvey I want to briefly introduce the amazing and crazy supporting cast. I'm not going to go into detail, simply explain where you can find out more about them.
The story of Ava and Zander is found in I Stole His Car (Love At First Crime Book 1)
The story of Sasha and Declan is found in I Knocked Him Out (Love At First Crime Book 2)
The story of Teagan and Joey is found in I Burned Down His House (Love At First Crime Book 3)
You do not have to read any of these books (indeed I haven't... yet) to understand and enjoy the goings on in I Broke Into His Office.
Truthfully, it took me the first couple of chapters before I was able to get into the story, but once I did, I got caught up in it and couldn't put it down until I finished it, and most definitely will be reading it again.
I feel the best thing about the plot was that you never knew what Nix's crime boss father was going to throw at him next. Nix wasn't the only target, however. I'll leave that up to you to find out for yourself. It really keeps you guessing.
Phoenix (Nix) Conway is an overworked restaurant owner and son of an infamous crime boss who is under investigation for a number of crimes and doesn't care who he hurts or uses to further his aims. Like he needs anything more on his plate, Nix is reluctantly drawn into the investigation. I found myself getting angry at what Nix was forced to do to prevent his father from carrying out a threat he used to seal Nix's cooperation. Nix's first attempt to carry out his father's instructions ends in a way I didn't see coming.
Harvey Newberry is the Private Investigator hired by Nix's mother to help send Nix's father to prison. His chance meeting with Nix happens in an unexpected manner and sets for a chain of events neither could have anticipated. Harvey is strong, willful and stubborn and determined to bring Nix's father down. We also find Harvey to be very protective of his friends and those he loves (and comes to love). Harvey is a great person to have at your back.
It's an awesomely awesome story. I give it 5 out of 5 stars and can't recommend it highly enough!
