Waiting on Wednesday (437) Protective Behavior (Bad Behavior #5) by L.A. Witt and Cari Z.

Expected publication: April 8th 2020
Genre: N/M, Romance

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Detective Mark Thibedeau is perfectly happy doing his job in Internal Affairs and going home to his cat. Still, when his assistant wants to set him up on a blind date, he can’t help but be intrigued.

Dr. Ryan Campbell loves the frenetic pace of working in an emergency department. He likes his life and doesn’t need anyone. But that guy his colleague wants him to meet does sound pretty interesting.

It’s instant chemistry when they meet—and instant chaos.

That chaos isn’t just phone calls interrupting dates. When a patient comes into the ED rapidly bleeding out from a gunshot wound, Ryan suddenly finds himself in possession of evidence that could very well put two white cops in jail for killing an innocent black man in cold blood.

Not sure what else to do, Ryan takes the evidence to the only cop he can trust—Mark.

Now Mark is investigating a delicate case, and Ryan is a material witness, and putting their fledgling relationship on hold is the least of their problems. Dirty cops stalk Ryan and his colleagues. Higher-ups question Mark’s investigative integrity at every turn. Worse, he’s tugging at threads of a citywide systemic problem of cops getting away with racially motivated murder.

And there are cops with blood on their hands who will gladly kill to keep that system running.

CW: Racially motivated violence, white-cop-on-black civilian violence

This book is #5 in the Bad Behavior series, but can be read as a standalone.

What a nice surprise to see a new book is being released in this series. I loved the first 4 books, so even though this isn't the same couple, I'm hoping I'll enjoy it just as much.

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. That's a new to me one! I hope you enjoy it once you get to read it!

  3. I keep going back to the fact that the detective has a cat. Haha. This does sound good in addition to that though. Romance and mystery are a fun mix! I would definitely be interested in giving this a try. I hope you love it when you read it. Stay safe and well.
