Nicco Santori and Rider Davies have been friends and partners on the LA police force for ten years. They’re closer than most married couples, and there’s nothing they don’t share.
When Nicco sees Rider kissing a man, he realizes his partner has a secret Nicco doesn’t know about. Nicco’s more than shocked, he’s jealous, and he realizes he must confront Rider about what he saw. Perhaps more difficult than that, he must confront himself about the feelings for his partner he’s kept buried for so long.
Can things work out between the partners? If so, Nicco may have something with Rider he’s never before dreamed possible. But if no, Nicco stands to lose it all.
Partners is a book about two law enforcement officers finding out they are attracted to one another. Friends to lovers and law enforcement in one book? Sign me up ‘cuz it is one of my favorite kinds of M/M romances to read!
While this was an easy, enjoyable read, the fact that it is only 30 pages long doesn’t leave a lot of time for back-story and character development. There was no sexual tension until about 85% and then BOOM, the book ended, HFN. We don’t get a glimpse of the future for these two police officer partners of 10 years. The book ends after the sex.
So, while I did enjoy it, it was really a palate cleanser type of book you would read after a longer, angsty read. If that’s what you are looking for, I can recommended it.
