Jon Brennan comes from a long line of men in uniform; all born and bred to both bleed and wear blue. His family and the majority of his co-workers support him every step of the way, so he doesn’t need to hide the fact that he prefers men over women. Between the job and his larger than life, loud and rowdy half Irish, half Italian family, there isn’t much time for dating, much less finding a guy that can deal with the stress and demands placed on the shoulders of an NYPD Detective.

Kory White is cocky and abrasive with most people, but it is all a mirage, a façade he hides behind to keep his heart safe. As a child, Kory lost his mother to an act of violence. Soon after, he and his baby sister Kassandra were separated by the system. Kassandra was immediately adopted, but Kory spent the next ten years cycling through foster homes before moving to the Big Apple. In an effort to keep everyone at a distance, Kory has meticulously built himself an alter ego: Hayden Cox, All Cocks’ cockiest model.

These two strong willed men definitely prove opposites do attract. Both are stubborn and hard headed to a fault, Kory more so than Jon. But Jon is used to being in control, the one calling the shots, and Kory fights him at every turn. Just when it seems they have found a way to navigate the unchartered territory that is love, tragedy knocks on Kory’s door yet again. Volatile and strong, even in the face of adversity, both men refuse to give up on each other – or their love.

Review

(Book Reviewed Here Previously)

From the earlier books in this series we know Kory is kind of a big drama queen. He’s hard to work with and struggles to make friends. When there’s trouble and the police get involved we meet Jon – Tristan’s brother from book 4.

Jon is a cop and doesn’t put up with a lot of drama. He puts Kory in his place but with a gentle hand.

There’s a lot of drama in this story – it’s about Kory after all!- but there’s also a lot of sentimentality and sweetness.

I had a hard time with how Jon and Kory relate to one another – sometimes with violence.  That’s just a trigger of mine and it made me uncomfortable.  

I thought the Cass part of the story was a little to good to be true, but lovely nonetheless.

We get to see how the throuple is doing as well as catch up with the guys from book one.

This wasn’t my favorite in the series, but it’s still an excellent addition to the other books and I really liked it.

Joel Leslie had a tough job here. He had to switch back and forth from a NYC accent to a Southern Drawl – over and over and over! He did a great job! I loved Jon’s accent (his whole family’s really!) and can’t wait for Tristan’s story in audio as a result! Kory’s accent was fab too and I know it had to be hard to use such distinct voices then add in Irish too! Gah! It was really well done. Joel is great with the emotion and the non-dialog parts as well. Highly Recommended!
