They say the brightest lights cast the longest shadows. Zach thinks Logan’s been living in that shadow long enough, but can he convince him he deserves to stand in the light?
Detectives Zach Gibson and Logan Armstrong are partners, friends, and something more that they’ve never analyzed or put a name to. But it works for them. For now.
When Zach’s grandfather asks them to investigate the theft of a ring from the finger of his recently deceased friend, it opens a can of worms Logan has been struggling to keep closed for ten years.
Secrets, guilt and revelations come tumbling out, and Logan is forced to finally deal with events from his past that have kept him emotionally bound and unable to move on.
This was a re-read after first reading it a year ago. I loved it even better the second time! A perfect story of police detective partners who are also lovers that realize their deep love for one another during a particularly trying case. Very emotional and passionate. Wish it could have been longer! A personal favorite and a must read for all M/M romance fans.
Unfortunately, the $5 price tag for a 61 page book it a bit hard to swallow. Since we’ve started our “Quickies” of older books, it’s been a common occurrence that these older books don’t reflect the changes in publishing, those non-KU books keeping a relevant price point. It’s a shame because this really is a great book and should be listed at about 99¢.
