That’s what my mom is always saying: “The bigger you are, the harder you fall.” She’s talking about love—I’ve never been in it myself, but that doesn’t stop me from secretly matchmaking for my friends. Who would suspect me, a world class athlete, of meddling in other people’s love lives? I love Love, especially when it’s not me who’s doing the falling…
That’s what Hollis Westbrooke said when I asked her on a date. Well, propositioned her, actually—but it was all a big joke; one she doesn’t think is funny. My stomach is in knots since I might actually like this girl so the joke is on me. Hollis’s father is my boss—and she doesn’t date players.
The bigger they are, the harder they fall—especially when biggest player is me.

Welcome to The Extra Shot where you’ll find an exclusive excerpt from the latest release Secret Investigation by Elizabeth Heiter from the Tactical Crime Division series.
About the Book
In the wake of a tragedy, the Tactical Crime Division gets to work.
Investigating crime is a day at the office for the specially trained agents with the TCD unit. Except when it becomes personal for former army ranger Agent Davis Rogers. When ironclad body armor inexplicably fails on the battlefield, Rogers takes on the undercover assignment to find the traitor responsible. Petrov Armor CEO Leila Petrov is reluctant to provide access to her company…until she discovers she’s being framed. But will a joint effort be enough to uncover the truth?
About the Series
4 books, 4 urgent cases. One team of crime solving experts. The Tactical Crime Division is the FBI’s rapid-response team, ready to respond to emergencies around the country.
The Tactical Crime Division is an ensemble series written by multiple authors. Each book stands alone, but similar to an ensemble series like Criminal Minds, NCIS, or CSI, you can see the lead characters from one novel in secondary roles in other books!
Book #1: 48 Hour Lockdown by Carla Cassidy
Book #2: Secret Investigation by Elizabeth Heiter
Book #3: Midnight Abduction by Nichole Severn
Book #4: Running Out of Time by Cindi Myers
“You do realize I could blow your cover whenever I want, right?”
Leila Petrov stared at him with narrowed eyes. Her lips pursed tight, and the muscles in her forearms and biceps twitched as she crossed them over her chest. She’d pivoted in her seat again, this time snapping off her seat belt. But she’d made no move to get out of his vehicle and disappear into her house.
As furious as she looked, Davis knew none of his own worry showed. He’d spent too many years running or parachuting into enemy territory with only as much gear as he could carry and no backup that could reach him and his team for days. He was well practiced in faking confidence in moments of doubt. If his fellow soldiers couldn’t see through it, neither would the young CEO heir of Petrov Armor.
“Well?” she demanded when he was silent too long.
A smile threatened and Davis fought to hide it. She was nothing like he’d expected when he’d first opened her file. Whether or not she’d gotten her role as CEO because she was the founder’s daughter, she knew the company inside out. She wasn’t afraid to call him on things, no matter the FBI’s involvement. He definitely hadn’t expected her dry sense of humor.
A laugh bubbled up thinking about her comment about the inflatable boat he probably kept in his SUV. If she only knew how often an inflatable boat had come in handy in his previous job.
“Are you laughing at me?” Leila demanded. “Because if those vests are truly ours, I plan to figure out who was behind it. I’m going to do it with or without your—”
“I’m not laughing at you,” Davis cut her off. He leaned closer, saw her chest rise and fall faster in response. “Why would you want to blow my cover?”
“You’re not holding up your end of the deal. I don’t appreciate you trying to manipulate me with flirtation, with…this.” She gestured in front of her, indicating their nearness.
This time, Davis knew his surprise showed. He leaned away from her, trying to regroup.
Leila pivoted even more in her seat, getting into his personal space the same way she had in that interview room. Going on the offensive when most people would do the opposite. “Is this your thing when you go undercover? Try to seduce your contacts?”
“I’m not…” Davis blew out a breath that ended on a laugh. “This is my first time undercover.”
