Officer Luc Moretti had no idea that his dive into the East River would have him drowning in a media frenzy. No matter how many times he tells reporters he was just doing his job, they're determined to make him into NYC's newest hero. Coming from a long line of NYPD's finest, Luc knows that being a cop has nothing to do with headlines and viral videos, and he's more than ready to get back to life away from the cameras—until he meets the gorgeous but jaded journalist assigned to film a TV special on him.

Ava Sims may be the only woman in NYC who isn't in love with Officer Moretti. That's why she's going after the real story—to find out about the man behind the badge. Ava's determined to keep things strictly professional, but the more time she spends around Luc, even she has to admit there's something about a man in uniform . . . and she can't wait to get him out of his.

FRISK ME // The Playlist by Lauren Layne

I know so many authors that like to write in complete silence. I also know so many writers who thrive on the hustle and bustle and “people noise” of working at Starbucks.

Me? I’m neither of these. When I’m working on a story, it’s all about the music. If I’m stuck on a scene, almost always the problem is that I don’t have the write song!

For some reason, this reliance on the right music was never so important as with writing FRISK ME. I’d be completely paralyzed until I had my theme song for the day!! So know that the list below wasn’t hastily thrown together. No no. This list took me HOURS of careful deliberation. Even now, I’ll hear one of these songs and not only do I immediately think of the scene, I can recall exactly where I was sitting when I wrote the scene?! Fact: The power of music is CREEPY. Also, awesome.

The songs start off pretty upbeat and intense, and then mellow out as the romance develops and gets sexy.

Also, there’s a lot of Glee cast songs on here. Not even sorry.

About Lauren Layne

Lauren Layne is a snarky cynic with a serious weakness for happily ever afters.

Marrying her high school sweetheart was a good start. *cue Disney soundtrack.* But Lauren wanted all romance, all the time.

Now she writes fictional happy endings, and considers her job done well if you swoon while reading her books. Don’t worry. You will.

Once upon a time she lived in a Manhattan high-rise, but now she’s on the laid-back train in the Seattle area. If you ever find yourself in Issaquah, she’ll probably buy you a drink. Maybe.


  1. Hey, thanks for this post and the playlist…looks like a great cast of songs! I’ve loved the Glee songs for quite awhile. And I’ve pre-ordered Frisk Me so I’ll get it tomorrow. Whee!!
