Atlanta’s notorious narcotics task force is at it again. They are stronger, bigger, and better than ever. Especially when a city councilman sends RECON Marine Edwin Steele – who’s been blacklisted from his Oakland department – to join the team.
Steele was ready to hang up his shield. He was done fighting with bigoted bastards that couldn’t respect the job. He was good at fighting; he just needed the right team to fight with. When his uncle – City Councilman Rasmus Steele – shows him a video of God’s team in action, he knows right away it’s where his nephew belongs in order to restore his faith.
Steele was skeptical about his new placement, but when he meets God’s technology specialist/computer genius, “Tech”, he’s willing to give it his all, and he definitely shows and proves.
Tech is stunning. His sweater vest and khakis, a stark contrast to the blue-jeaned roughnecks he works with. A beautiful sheep amongst the wolves. Steel thinks there’s no way the brilliant man would be interested in a hardhead like him, but Tech has a few badass hidden talents of his own and manages to surprise him…surprise all of them.
Contains mature themes.

Review

This is book five in the series and I don’t think it’d be great as a stand-alone. It technically could be, but OH MAN you’d have missed so much!

In fact, it’s best if you’ve read all the previous four including You Can See Me because there’s a part that involve Pres, Rick and Blair too! (OMG there’s a part with Blair and Furi…. Just OMG – and no – no cheating or anything like that but it’s HOT!)

What I love so much about this series is the juxtaposition between brains and brawn. All the guys, even Ruxs and Green are smart, sensitive but very manly men.

Tech is a great addition to the coupled up crowd. He’s so lonely at the beginning and it was wonderful to see him fall for Steele, pretty much right away and vice versa.

There’s a bit of strife in this but only a little with Steele and Tech, some for God and Day and some for Pres and his partners.

Almost as much about Tech and Steele, this is a book about God and Day so that’s why I say this is definitely best read in order. If you’re a fan of the series you’ll ADORE what’s in store for God and Day!

There’s also great stuff with all the guys! (The scene with Ruxs and Green in the morning – that’s some the stuff I love the most from the author!) AE Via always provides the feels with the smexy times and exciting action sequences as well.

I love how super hero ish they are and how they clean up modern day metropolis (Atlanta) but have to deal with paperwork after. At least nobody is fighting them anymore on the inside.

I think this is the best edited book I’ve seen from her as I found no noticeable typos etcetera. I also think it’s one of the better books in terms of writing, too.

I highly recommend this to fans of the series, and to any fans of alpha males, police romances and good, ol’ fashioned hot men gettin’ it on!

(I cannot wait for Free and Hart’s story – I’m sure it’s gonna be Hart, right? – it sounds amazing already!)

Detectives Mark Ruxsberg and Chris Green are very good at their jobs. Being the enforcers for God and Day’s notorious Atlanta PD Narcotics Task Force causes the crazy duo to get into more trouble than they can often get out of. The pair never misses out on an opportunity to drive their Lieutenants crazy with their dangerous, reckless, and costly stunts, landing them in the hot seat in front God… often.

Ruxs and Green love their jobs and they don’t mind the very demanding schedule that leaves them little time for socializing or dating. It was fine with them, they enjoyed hanging out with each other anyway.

However, most of the men in their close circle of friends and colleagues are pairing off and settling down. God has Day, Ro has Johnson, and their Sergeant Syn has Furious.

For the past several years, Ruxs has only sought out the advice and company of one person, his partner and best friend Green, and vice versa. Both of these alpha males are presumed straight, but neither can deny the heat that’s building in their once ‘just friends’ relationship.

Review

I love this series! It’s super sexy, full of romance, and full of Alpha males falling in love – often with other Alpha males!

In this case we get a bi-sexual enforcer who falls for his “straight” partner who is also falling. The two end up pseudo-adopting a kid and become a really wonderful family.

While I do sometimes skim over the smexy times – there are a lot! – the romance and the storyline keep me hooked and eagerly turning pages.

I’m a big fan of this “new to me” narrator Aiden Snow and I’ve LOVED what he has to do with this series. He totally gets the characters and does a great job with the accents, the emotion, the dialog and even the female characters.

Highly recommended!

4.5 for the book
5 for the narration
