Blurb: Carlisle police officer Dwayne knows what Robin is doing the moment he lays eyes on the young man at Bronco’s club. But he doesn’t know that they both come from families who’ve cast them out for being gay, or that they’re still lugging around the pain of those rejections. Robin leaves the club, and soon after Dwayne decides to as well—and is close by when things between Robin and his client turn violent.
When Dwayne finds out Robin is the victim of a scam, which lost him his apartment, he can’t leave Robin to fend for himself on the streets. Despite Dwayne’s offer of help and even opening up his home, it’s hard for Robin to trust anything good. The friendship between them grows, and just as the two men start warming up to each other, Robin’s sister passes away, naming Robin to care for her son. Worse yet, their pasts creep back in to tear down the family and sense of belonging both of them long for.
Review: Each book in the Carlisle Cop’s collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Andrew Grey is one of the first male writers that I have not only read, but knew that I would continue to read. In fact this series was the first one I had read that caught my attention and I knew I wanted to read them all. They are entertaining and have the best tone for the story. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. This is one of those books that make me forget what I am doing other than reading.
Robin was kicked out of his home when he confessed that he was gay. His mother just had not stuck up with him, when his step-father demanded him to leave. Then he lost his job and was about to lose his room. He tried to do the one thing that could guarantee his money, too bad he was just not the type to do it.
Dwayne saves Robin from a beating, and then finds out that the poor kid is now the victim of a rent scam. The guy just couldn’t get any luck going. So Dwayne knows he must step in and help. I won’t tell you anymore, because you really need to read this book. There is a big old twist that will shock the crap out of you.
I had a lot of fun reading this and cannot wait for the next book to come out. I had to go back and read the previous books to this series just for fun. The characters are so fully developed that it will fill like you know them, and the action is packed full. I would definitely recommend this book.
