I don’t normally like books written in the first person present tense. In fact, they’re usually an automatic DNF for me. I might have to change my mind on that after reading Disturbing His Peace. Told in the first person present tense, this book switches between being told from Danika and Greer’s points of view. The first person present tense works really well for the story, because Tessa Bailey does it SO WELL that it’s like you’re inside each of their heads. Their dirty, filthy, smutty heads. *delicious shiver*
Danika is a first generation American whose parents emigrated from Colombia, and she has a very strong family focus. Greer is basically her polar opposite when it comes to family, having little to no personal relationship with his father and loving his brother but unsure how to actually connect with him. I love how sassy and ballsy Danika is. Who doesn’t love a bad-ass lady cop? Especially when she also has a heart of gold and bends over backwards to do everything for her family. Greer is also pretty amazing, and I love how huge and uptight he is. Plus that super tight leash he has on his passion for Danika is super sexy. Rawr!
HOLY HANNAH, the heat in this book. I’m pretty sure my face was flaming while reading several parts. Disturbing His Peace has heavy dom/sub themes, and I really appreciate the way Danika and Greer discover and explore their developing interest in these roles together. Greer always checks that what he’s doing is OK with and enjoyable for Danika, for example asking if it’s OK before spanking her during foreplay, which depicts a healthy and safe dom/sub relationship and does NOT normalize abuse. *loud round of applause* Hooray for kinky consensual sex play!
This is the third book in The Academy series, and while it can be read as a stand-alone there ARE spoilers for plot points in the first two books. Dani’s roommates are the male leads in the first two books, and there are mentions of what I assume are some major plot points from them in Disturbing His Peace. If that’s something that’s going to ruin it for you if you decide to go back and read the earlier books, then read Disorderly Conduct (The Academy #1) and Indecent Exposure (The Academy #2) before reading Disturbing His Peace.
