*I received a copy of this book from the AE Via in return for a fair and honest review.*


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.

So yes the gangs all back in all their hot glory. I mean everyone too, and don’t forget about Curtis and Genesis. This book though primarily focuses on the two enforcers of God and Day’s APD Task Force, Ruxs and Green. (Though each of the guys in the previous books play roles and make appearances frequently). These two are the men who love to get their hands dirty, and have no problem costing the department money for their destruction if it means catching their perp. They are closer than most brothers, basically living out of each others pockets. They have always been touchy feely with one another but it never meant anything or so they thought about the other. Unfortunately a night spent on God and Day’s couch might have changed Ruxs views on certain things.

Being around gay manly couples at work never affected Ruxs until he started looking at Green in a different light and reevaluating his life. Reading Ruxs inner monologues trying to tell himself what he’s feeling isn’t so, is hilarious. I found myself laughing periodically at his responses in his head. As tough as Ruxs is on the outside, he really does want love. He struggles with the emotions he is starting to feel and wont talk to Green about it. Green notices something is wrong but doesn’t understand why Mark wont talk to him.

Things start to change when the boys help Curtis study for his math test. Yes, the scrawny kid who God busted for trying to rob a gas station has become a big part in the whole teams life. They watch out for him, give him work and make sure he is ok. Because of the guys, Curtis decides he wants to become a lawyer and help youth. He has become a straight A honor Student. Throughout the book you see the relationship Curtis has built with all the men but especially Ruxs and Green. They basically have become his surrogate fathers and the team brothers and father figures as well. The way ALL the men take care of Curtis is so heartwarming, you never would have thought from the first book he would play such a big role in all of the teams life. Especially now that they are the only family he has left. They make it clear to everyone concerned Curtis is their’s (I can’t tell you what that means because that’s a spoiler and you know how I feel about them, so you’ll just have to read about what event takes place and how the team comes together and truly becomes Curtis’s family).

As usual after a stressful day one of the guys would massage the other, little did we know until now, Green isn’t as straight as we thought. As Green proceeds to try to rid Ruxs of his stress it only seems to tense him more. The whole scene is so comical. I was dying laughing as I read it because neither knows about the other one, Ruxs is realizing he wants Green and has the biggest hard on ever and is about to blow from just a massage. Green can’t figure out why Ruxs is still tense after thirty minutes, so he tells him to turn over. OMG there were tears streaming down my face from laughing. Not only could I picture the scene because AE described it so well, but Ruxs thoughts were the icing on the cake. Somehow Ruxs was able to get Green to leave just in time before he made a HUGE mess.

After a little misunderstanding the truth came out from both men, and when they came together it was explosive. AE wrote such an amazing scene – there was fire, tenderness and of course comedy with their inner thoughts. They both shared something no one else had experienced, and solidified the nature of the relationship only making them stronger in both work and love. It was an exactly perfect scene for these two extremely dominate men. Let me tell you a secret… you will be surprised at who ultimately loves to be the

As usual life doesn’t always go smoothly, but when the chips get tough this is one team, you don’t want to mess with. God and Day have created not only a team but a family, and Ruxs and Green are glad to be apart of it. Inside this book AE still manages to bring out a surprise couple and maybe even a new member of the team, but you’ll have to read to find out those juicy details. Trust me on this you want to know….


Overall Impression:

4.5 * – I loved it – Once again AE does it. She created another amazing book for this series. This book is filled with comedy, hot steamy scenes, tender moments and times of sorrow and crisis. She manages to pull it all together to create an amazing book you don’t want to miss. All the players are there and you get to see the team solid in the roles they have come to play, characters grow up and become strong men, relationships from the past are shown to have been strongly mended. Within this book the meaning of a true family is established.  You don’t have to be blood related to hold that title, and these characters prove that. This book once again proves why AE Via is one of my favorite authors and her books will always hold a place in my library.

***Don’t miss the party on 11/30, if you don’t know the significance of the Desert Eagle… come and find out. That and so much more. See you there!!***
