Blurb: How do you work for a guy who took the job you wanted? Every time Captain Layne Sullivan runs into Chief Ross Taylor, she struggles with that issue. It doesn't help that he's a by-the-book cop who expects everything done his way. It also doesn't help that he's hot. Ignoring that little fact is impossible-she's tried!

Then Layne's world is turned upside down when human remains are discovered...and the case has a personal connection. Suddenly she's glad Ross is so thorough, because he'll get to the truth. And his search brings them closer, fueling the attraction that's out of control. As secrets and lies from the past surface, Layne's biggest challenge is fighting for a future-with Ross in it.

   I really enjoyed reading this book! This is the first book in a three book series and each book is going to feature one of the three Sullivan sisters and the truth of their mother's disappearance. This is Layne's story, well Layne & Ross because this is a romance after all.
   Let me just say that I just loved Layne's character! Being the oldest of the three Sullivan sisters, she has always taken it upon herself to take care of her sisters, whether they wanted her to or not. She is fiercely loyal and independent, and always tries to do what she thinks is best.
   Ross is Layne's superior and the outsider who took the job she was next in line for. Ross moved from Boston to small town Mystic Point to try to raise his rebellious 16 year old niece. Poor Ross has his work cut out for him with a niece who resents him, a town that doesn't take to outsiders well, and a police department that doesn't really respect him.
   Layne and Ross butt heads so much through the beginning of the story, it was funny to see how their mutual attraction made them act a little crazy. I really liked that the characters weren't perfect and each had their own background drama that influenced their behavior, it really made the story believable. Their chemistry together was great and I really enjoyed watching (reading) how it all played out!
   The plot was interesting and there was a lot of drama, which I loved! Although there were some unresolved story-lines, I'm sure the next two books will clear them up. I read it in one day, and now I'm sad because I'm going to have to wait for the next two to come out! Overall, great book!

On Her Side (The Truth About the Sullivans #2) is supposed to come out August 2012
