Bryan Monroe has always catalogued his life in terms of moments—right moments, wrong moments, perfect moments. But when his best friend and partner on the police force, Chrys Delos, is shot in a raid gone bad, it’s one of the worst moments of Bryan’s life.
Bryan’s been secretly in love with Chrys for years, and the shooting is a wake-up call that it might be time to tell Chrys the truth. The problem is, Bryan’s never been with a man before, so in addition to worrying about Chrys’ injuries, he’s an indecisive wreck over the future.
But with the help of two unlikely matchmakers, Bryan knows it’s time to find the courage, and the perfect moment, to tell Chrys exactly how he feels…
This is a very short book (1000 locations or so) that tells the sweet story of a pair of cops who fall in love. Bryan realizes his love when his partner Chrys is shot trying to protect Bryan.
It’s a GFY, Bryan is a divorced dad who still lives next to his BFF ex-wife.
There isn’t much (if any) angst. We enter the story with Bryan realizes he’s in love but not knowing how to tell Chrys how he feels and we leave the story… pretty much after he tells him.
There is a lot of sweetness in between beginning and end but there isn’t much story.
I liked the premise a lot and the characters had potential but it was not realized fully. I really wanted to see how Bryan handled the physical side of the story, but that, too, was brief.
Instead of spending a lot of time on the waffling about how to tell his buddy how he feels, I wish we’d had more time exploring their relationship with one another.
K-lee gave us a tantalizingly brief glimpse into these characters, even giving us well-developed secondary characters like Chrys’ dad and Bryan’s ex-wife, but not much story.
I liked it a lot, but wished there was more. (And now that I know there’s a sequel – I’m stoked!)
I give it 4 of 5 stars
