Love Bleeds Blue (Hot Cops. Hot Crime. Hot Romance.) by Emma Calin is the fourth book in the suspenseful romance series Passion Patrol. This is a book that would appeal most to a mixed audience of mature young adults and adults who have enjoyed the Passion Patrol series and who do not mind profanity, mild violence, innuendo, and sexual situations. Sergeant Sophia Castellana rescues boy band star Charles Gonin from what is believed to be an attempted kidnapping. After being rescued by the beautiful Sergeant Sophia Castellana, Charles becomes determined to have her as his bodyguard and hopefully much more. Will Charles get his wish; will Sophia decide Charles is worthy of her heart; will the two survive the events that are unfolding around them?
Love Bleeds Blue by Emma Calin is a well-written steamy romance that could easily be read as a standalone novel. I really liked the fact that I did not miss out on anything by not having read any of the previous books in the series. I quickly found myself liking Sergeant Sophia Castellana as she was a strong female character who did not lose her femininity. I liked the mix of action and adventure elements as these kept the plot unpredictable, which allowed the story to have a real plot line instead of just coming off as another predictable romance novel. Overall, I really enjoyed the novel and I especially liked the way that the author developed Sergeant Sophia Castellana and Charles Gonin as unique individuals brought together by circumstance.
