Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Rafe Bridges stopped mixing business with pleasure long ago, but when he receives a call from an intriguing cop who needs help searching for an old family friend, he breaks down and takes on the case. With each day that passes, Rafe becomes further fascinated with Jeremy Halliday…but the biggest problem isn’t his attraction to the cop or his growing need for him. It’s the tiny little detail of Jeremy being straight.
Jeremy isn’t as immune to Rafe as he’d like to believe and as they work together, sifting through a case that is more mysterious and dangerous than it seems, Rafe draws away from him. Knowing he might miss out on someone incredible, Jeremy has to figure out what and who he really wants. And soon.
Nothing is black and white anymore.
I’m very picky when it comes to this genre, so I guess when I finally find one I want to read, I have high expectations and this book met them easily. The story and the two guys had me from the start that I barely couldn’t stop reading. A big positive was that both guys were basically hunks. In the very few I’ve read so far there’s always one guy who’s more boyish looking and one is more on the manly man side – basically a twink and a hunk – and it’s one of the things that annoy me a bit. But those two sailed for the same „hunky“ boat, which I highly approved.
The case itself, which brought Rafe and Jeremy together was just a reason to let them interact, to get them to know each other, to let them fall in love rather than a forefront plot even if the case ended in a big and more tragic way that I expected. It also was a bit long for my taste, but it got the typical last obstacle out of the way.
All in all it was a good and entertaining read and it’s a shame that the other books from the author aren’t available anywhere anymore.
