Ares saw him for the first time at a Kilgore Police Department benefit dinner. She’d gone with her dad as his plus one. Hayes Greer had gone by himself and brooded silently across the same table as her, drinking whiskey and not saying a word.
It only took that one time for her to become interested.
The next time she saw him, he was doing another benefit—but this one requiring a whole lot fewer clothes. And that was when she knew. She wanted him. Badly. But the morose Hayes was too busy thinking about his sins to see what was right in front of his face—Ares.
Hayes Greer knew the moment that he saw the feisty Ares Downy again that he should’ve stayed away. Maybe if he hadn’t done the stupid calendar, he wouldn’t be questioning every single woman’s intentions.
Maybe if he’d listened to that niggling feeling telling him to stay away, he would’ve been able to do his job a little better. But seeing her with a knife to her throat, in the middle of a building set to blow, made his usually well-wired brain start to malfunction.
Because nobody was allowed to touch her like that—only him. Nobody was allowed to scare her, either. Not and live to tell the tale.

Ask Me If I Care is the latest book in Vale's KPD Swat Generation 2.0 series and it makes a fabulous addition to the rest. Delivering us the story of Ares and Hayes and just a little more than that, but some things need to be read for themselves.
I enjoyed the interactions between Ares and Hayes - two people who most wouldn't have put together and yet once you saw them together, you'd realize there isn't anything more fitting than these two together. I loved Ares and her quirks because that made her feel more like someone I'd want to be friends with. And as always with Vales book, I loved the closeness of her characters - all of them - to each other and everyone else in the story. There's always some lesson to be learned from side characters.
Ask Me If I Care delivers a developing romance between these two while also brewing up quite the mysterious crime as well - leaving readers guessing who done it and how it's going to play out on the page. Vale delivers great suspense, good action and a plausible scenario to keep readers attention and then snares a win for our Swat in the end.
I can't wait for our next Swat hero and to see where that story leads us.
