Officer Gabe Ford knows finding love could be a tad problematic—especially since he hasn’t come out to his partner of six years yet. But what’s a guy to do when his body wants what his brain is saying he can’t have?
A year and a half after a breakup, Jason Tomlinson isn’t actively looking for a relationship. Hell, he can do bad all by himself. But Gabe Ford is just too damn yummy to resist. Just as things are beginning to pick up, one bullet may end it all before it even begins.
I loved this story. Gabe has hidden himself for years and hasn’t been ready to come out to his friends but a little intervention with his best friend and partner, Malik, help him out. Jason is drawn to Gabe from the beginning and they both allow themselves to explore what is going on between them.
The story was told from both of the characters’ eyes which helped to connect with them. It was amazing that one Gabe realized Malik didn’t care about him being gay he just went for it and didn’t worry about anyone else. Jason doesn’t hide either, except after he is shot, but their connection grows even stronger as Gabe helps him recover and they get to know each other more. The drama with Jason being shot wasn’t all that big but it gave them a reason to be together a little more and an area for them to have a disagreement, which all couples need.
The cover art by Kanaxa is wonderful and I love it.
