There's only one thing worse than dating a friend's sister sleeping with his mother.
Fran DeLuca's known for her bossy, overbearing personality almost as much as for her love of nylon tracksuits. But when someone runs off with fifty thousand dollars, she becomes involved in an ALFA investigation and catches the eye of silver fox biker, Bear.
Bear North, ALFA's resident bad boy, has never thought of Fran as anything more than his buddy's mom. When she trades in her elastic pants and orthopedic tennis shoes for a pair of skintight jeans and high heels, he takes notice of the fifty-something MILF.
When the money trail leads closer to Fran than expected, Bear takes charge of the investigation and will do anything to protect her. Can Bear track a thief, claim Fran, and keep Morgan DeLuca in the dark long enough to solve the case?
ALFA Private Investigations is a spin-off of the Men of Inked series, but can be read separately.
Wicked Impulse is book 3 in the ALFA PI series and includes a BONUS novella - Men of Inked Christmas.

The third book in the ALFA PI series, Wicked Impulse was an absolute winner for me.
I’ve loved Bear for a while now so was eager for him to get his own story and what a story it was. It was hot, funny and in parts poignant and heart-warming. In fact this is one of my most favourite books by this author.
Bear is an all-out man-whore. He doesn’t do relationships, he is all for the one night stands because they don’t involve feelings. He’s managed for the past thirty years without so why change now? But then Fran comes into his life. As far as complications go he knows he can never even go there, she’s his co-worker and buddy’s Mom for one thing. For another thing, again he doesn’t do relationships. But Fran doesn’t make it easy for Bear to keep her at arm’s length. She was a looker when he first met her but now that she has ditched the lounge pants and is showing off that killer bod with her new sexy outfits, he is a goner.
Fran is a total fire cracker and isn’t afraid to say what she feels and go for what she wants. Bear had no chance, these two were meant to be. A match made in heaven!
What I loved about this book was that Bear and Fran are an older couple, in their fifties, and they show that there is lust and sex after fifty. These two certainly go at it and show their zest for life and each other, they were hot, hot, hot! The banter between them was hilarious and the chemistry and passion was intense and tangible.
There was also a suspenseful subplot that gave the read some added tension and brought all the ALFA guys into the mix as well as the sexy Gallo brothers. Maria was also a revelation but how could I not think this woman would be a saucy minx behind closed doors. The chats between her and Fran were pure comedy.
I adored this book with the engaging characters and exciting storyline, how could I not? If there was one thing though it is that it felt a little rushed at the end and I would have liked to have explored the lead up to their happy ending more. Looks like we are going to find out more about Bear’s son though so all’s good. Four and a half stars.
