About this ebook

Book 1 in the Heroes of Henderson series by USA Today Bestselling Author Liz Kelly

What happens when best friends fall for the same girl?

A bromance, a romance, and a love triangle.

Local sports heroes Brooks Bennett and Vance Evans are used to being part of a winning team. Yet when it comes to romance their good cop, bad cop images have them handcuffed. They want a woman’s point of view to help unshackle their reputations, and they’ve picked out one pretty, pony-tailed firecracker to do it.

Lolly DuVal longs for a summer fling that can set off all her bells and whistles. So she agrees to tutor Henderson’s hunkiest heroes on what women really want. But now she finds herself caught between two cops and a hard place. And those bells and whistles? They are starting to sound a whole lot more like alarms.

All the books in the Heroes of Henderson Series are complete romances. They do not need to be read in order, but it might be more fun that way as characters continue to show up in Henderson in big ways and small.

Funny, sexy and totally addictive! Liz Kelly creates a world you love to dive into, and cannot wait to discover more about. Brooks, Lolly, Vance, and their gossiping, hilarious friends and family offer a cast of characters to love, laugh with, and even sometimes love to hate. Light and fun, it’s easy to lose yourself in this book and spend hours trying to get to the end, only to realize you’re just waiting to get to the next one- which just happens to be perfectly set up by some expertly crafted secondary characters. Brooks and Vance can relax, Liz Kelly is putting Henderson on the map!

This is a fun sexy read that had me laughing out loud. With a strange little love triangle going on, Lolly DuVal has more male attention then she knows what do with. Brooks and Vance are best friends and now they both have their eye on the lovely Ms. DuVal. Brooks has always had a thing for Lolly but the age difference made him stay away. Well she's all grown up now and he's determined to make her his. Vance has issues with women. Outside the bedroom anyway. Lolly agrees to help him learn to appreciate women even when sex isn't involved. Vance finds himself unexpectedly attracted to Lolly but what about Brooks?? Who will win her heart, Good Cop Brooks or Bad Cop Vance?? Definitely a book I recommend.

I was going to give it 3 stars, but just couldn't... The girl and the boyfriend's best friend were just too friendly with each other. And got away with their behaviour too easily. She didn't even say sorry to the good cop guy. The way it was written make it too hard to believe that the girl was really into the good-cop guy, and she' more on friend with benefit... It was more like she would fall in for whoever sleep with her first. And the good cop is a pushover

About the author

USA Today bestselling author of the Heroes of Henderson Series.

Liz's Heroes of Henderson series grew out of the New Year's Eve Anthology, Countdown To A Kiss, where the Devine Sisters of Henderson, N.C. had a bet every year at their parents' New Year's Eve ball. The sister who didn't have a date to kiss at midnight had to kiss their nerdy neighbor, Lewis Kampmueller.

Duncan James, the hero of Liz's novella in Countdown To A Kiss (which has also been published separately as Playin' Cop) is not only best friends with Lewis, but with both Brooks Bennett and Vance Evans, his fraternity brothers from NC State. Brooks and Vance are the Henderson cops who kick off the series with Good Cop and Bad Cop.

Recurring characters is the theme of the Henderson series. Each book is a complete romance in and of itself, but you won't lose touch with the couples you fall in love with. They keep playing big parts and small in following books as Brooks and Vance lead Team Henderson in finding ways to revive their small town.

"DuVal Cousin" books are an additional part of the Heroes of Henderson series, and usually are tucked in between books with numbers like 2.5 and 3.5. They can be full length novels or short novellas, and they are based on Lolly DuVal's (from Good Cop) Henderson cousins. Where the Heroes books are hero-centric, the DuVal Cousin books are heroine based.

Henderson is an actual town in North Carolina where some of Liz's favorite people were raised. Liz's version of Henderson is completely fictional since she hasn't had the pleasure of going back in nearly thirty years. But oh the fun she had while visiting there in her youth. Her memories are the perfect landscape for her contemporary romances.

Liz enjoys putting friends and readers in cameo appearances in her books. Originally from Baltimore, she spent every summer near Annapolis, Maryland in a community where dancing and romancing are literally part of its theme song. (The place where Jesse James gets banished from in Bad Cop. There is going to be a series about that place someday.) 

A graduate of Wake Forest University, where she met her handsome golf-addicted husband, (who is now sporting dark glasses everywhere he goes) Liz is a mother of two grown sons (also sporting dark glasses) and a miniature Labradoodle named Isabelle. They live in the Fountain of Youth, a.k.a. Naples, FL where dancing and romancing continues on ad infinitum.
