Ex-cop Isaac Rhodes is a tough and intimidating private investigator with a talent for kicking in doors and knocking bail jumpers’ heads together. His only soft spot is for his partner, Nate Washington—though Wash makes him anything but soft. He’s silently lusted after Wash for a year, until his desire drives him to finally come out to his partner.
This confession leads to Wash admitting a few secrets of his own, unleashing needs that result in hot, sweaty, sexy, man-on-man intimacy. Rhodes is elated…until Wash admits he’s unsure if he’s willing to endure the often prejudice-filled life of an outed gay man. Crushed, Rhodes backs off. But one missing child—and a gun to Wash’s head—convinces Rhodes to do whatever it takes to get his man.

Given the title and cover you’d be mistaken thinking this was a PWP (porn without plot) It’s not. It’s freaking perfect!!!
Think about this:
Two hot MC’s? Check
A crimey type plot? Check
Enough sex to cover the storyline without going overboard? Check
Just a hint of angsty romance? Check
Humour to boot? Check and double check.
Fantastic!! I loved both MC’s immensely, especially Wash coz he was unapologetic with everyone. I didn’t like what he did to Isaac initially but he made up for it in the end. Poor Isaac was a bit here and there with Wash but I understood him not wanting to appear desperate and needy. The crimey plot was well done too. Not over the top action, just enough realism for this to be a fantastic light read.
With our family’s legacy, Meyers B&B, in the flailing hands of me, Sam Meyers, and my sister Wynne, we’re determined to revive the place. We’ve started a series of blind-date cooking classes, and taken on our first boarder. Granddad is even now rolling in his grave.
Signed up for the class is our new guest, Aaron Saunders, a Californian transplant who’s distractingly handsome and clearly up to no good. I can’t quite figure him out. He blew into town and has been relentless in his search for…something.
The sexy sneak is intriguing. And we’ve had a steamy moment. Or two. But now I can’t stop wondering why he’s searching in secret. From the library, to the historical society, to my own backyard, Aaron leaves no stone unturned or record book unopened. He’s definitely gotten my attention. But that might not be the only thing he’s after.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. Even though I haven’t read any of the previous 4 books, it was an easy story to follow. Some of the previous books characters make an appearance but you don’t need to know their story to be able to enjoy this one.
In saying that, I now want to read the previous stories because this had some great laugh-out-loud moments. The writing was witty and descriptive and pulled me along easily. Sam was a bit of a bore, but only because he thought he should be. Stuck in town where nothing happened. That was until Aaron came along and turned his world upside down. Mysterious Aaron who had secrets all his own. Who was he and why did he look suspiciously like Sam’s sister Wynne?
Yes there was a small mystery but there wasn’t any heavy angst. Simply a lovely light read with a nice side plot. There wasn’t much sex. A jerk off session in-between the pews at St Joe’s (yes gay sex in the Catholic church – remember I said it was funny?) and a blow job later on. Nothing too descriptive. The story didn’t have a HEA more of a HFN, but maybe book #6 will include these two. Let’s hope so.
