Jack Cannon is an elite member of LAPD's new Violent Crimes Unit. He's tough, he's smart...he's also gay. Jack's a guy who deals with pressure and stress by cruising. When he has a fling with a hot guy, one even hotter night in Los Angeles, it's no casual coupling. This guy is great. Jack wouldn’t mind seeing him again except he's discovered he'll be seeing a lot of him. This is the guy he's supposed to tail--Lucio Natale, the most violent mob boss ever to land in the city of angels.
This short hard hitting book is very fast-paced with a story line that never lets up. Jack Cannon, member of the LAPD Violent Crime unit, hides only one thing from his unit, that he is gay. He also uses sex to relax when he is stressed or hyped up from his job. It is during one of these visits to the gym seeking sex that Jack encounters Lucky, a handsome guy who is willing and available. Lucky was supposed to be his sex partner for now only, not a relationship.
Both men feel more than they want to for the other. And their encounters weave in and out of a very interesting suspense story that includes psycho killers, traitorous bad cops, mob guys, violent crime and hot sex.
If you are looking for romance and roses then this is probably not the story for you, but if you want your m/m story to be hard hitting, real and have a great "happy for now" ending, then this is a great book, it is also the first in a series, and I for one can not wait to read more.
