New York's Finest #3

Forever: Grand Central
Vincent knows he's not the most charming of the Moretti brothers. He prefers brooding to flirting, reading to talking, and he sure as hell isn't about to give into his mother's insistence that he 'settle down with a nice girl.' Luckily, Vincent's gig as one of the NYPD's top homicide detectives keeps him busy. As does his long-time partner, Jill Henley–a tough-as-nails cop with the face of an angel and smart mouth that makes Vincent crazy in all the worst ways.
After six years of working the homicide beat with the tight-lipped Vincent Moretti, Jill figure she knows him better than anyone. Which is not at all. But when their most recent case points to a potential serial-killer situation, the higher-ups send them on a rare undercover mission to a place no NYPD officer dares go: the Upper Eastside.
Now the bureau's most antagonistic set of partners is posing as Mr. and Mrs. Brooks of Park Avenue. Spending 24/7 in the suspect's territory brings them closer and closer to their killer . . . and closer to each other. Soon Vincent and Jill are playing good cop/bad cop in and out of bed, and Jill's falling hard. But can she convince Vincent to give her a shot as partner in life, as well as at the bureau?
I really liked the second book in this series and I could not wait to get to know another member of the Moretti family. I loved this family, they are some really nice nosy. They can't see make mistakes the others and shut up, parents should intervene.
Jill and Vincent are a perfect and well-matched couple: she is the good cop, friendly, funny, he is the bad one, grumpy, who never smiles. Jill has always been in love with Vincent but he has never noticed her. She had to take care of her mother and was three months away. She returns happily engaged. The problem is that she still loves Vincent. Is not the case to give up and find someone that really love her? The three months away have made it clear to Vincent what really feels for her?
Jill is a charming and smiling policewoman, the person that knows Vincent better than anyone after spending six years at his side. Vincent is a great cop but has a really tough character and above all is very shy, can't make it clear to Jill his true feelings.
This is the third book in the series, each one may be enjoyed as a stand alone novel but for more enjoyment read the whole series
This story is really well written and the dialogue is really brilliant and witty. I find there to be great dialogue, lots of chemistry, plenty of humor and some sweet romance.
If you are looking for a cute and funny book then you need to read this one.
