Beware of getting Scorched! This is a Hot read with even Hotter Men, they are Hot, Masculine and Humorous, and we get to enjoy them as our main characters. (Did I forget to say Hot?)
The author really introduced the characters extremely well, from the very beginning of the book I was engaged in the relationship of all of the characters from our 2 Main characters God and Day to the secondary characters Ronowski (the homophobe) and Johnson. The banter between the characters was very enjoyable.
God starts out in the beginning of the story very gruff and everyone was afraid of him. It was so enjoyable to see how he softened once he realized that he wanted to have a Romantic relationship with Day. God came from a pretty crappy childhood, emotionally abused by his stepfather and sexually abused by his stepfathers friends. The relationship that God had with his Mother and step brother was very strained due to some very extenuating circumstances. What he does for his family though is pretty remarkable. We don’t get a very deep background on Day, I have the perception that he had a pretty normal life where nothing happened that perversely or otherwise affected his life. Day is a very proud man and is not afraid of anyone knowing that he is gay.
I felt that the detective story line was interesting, I like the fact that they worked to get drugs off of the street. I didn’t particularly care for the terms of endearment that the guys used while at the precinct, I felt that wouldn’t really happen. The characters were portrayed as very professional, so my thought as I was reading “no probably not”.
The possessiveness that the characters had for each other was well written, I enjoyed how the author inserted an “app” so that the guys could always find each other if needed by their phones. I enjoy a story where characters really show a commitment to each other and these guys do hands down.
This was a very powerful and fun read, but there were just a couple of things I did not care for. The first 3/4 of this book was so good. Another couple joined God and Day in the bedroom, I actually closed my Kindle cover because I didn’t want it to happen. I didn’t really appreciate this development but I have to say that it was very sexy and it definitely left a door open to continue this story. I also felt that the book could have had a couple more read through’s before it was published, spelling is a big thing and we had some a couple of problems with them. I’m not knocking this book down because of these things, this is just my view. As I said in the beginning this is a Hot and Sexy read with just enough Angst and Comedy thrown in to give it the “Best Seller” title.
Book Description Cashel Godfrey is big, tattooed, and angry, so people typically keep their distance. Fresh out of the police academy no one is looking to partner with the six foot four beast. When Cashel scanned the orientation room, he wasn’t expecting sexy hazel eyes to be locked onto him. Eyes of the gorgeous Leonidis Day.
Leonidis is charming, witty, hilariously sarcastic, and the only one that can make Cashel smile. He’s an out and badass detective, but when Cashel saves his life in a raid that turns deadly, he sees something in the big man that no one else does…something special.
Warning: Two sexy narcotics detectives. One with a serious hot spot for big gun-toting men, the other that yields a cannon; so be ready for the obscene sexual bang when these two come together.
