A Cole McGinnis Mystery
Sequel to Dirty Deeds
From the moment former LAPD detective Bobby Dawson spots Ichiro Tokugawa, he knows the man is trouble. And not just because the much younger Japanese inker is hot, complicated, and pushes every one of Bobby’s buttons. No, Ichi is trouble because he’s Cole McGinnis’s younger brother and off-limits in every possible way. And Bobby knows that even before Cole threatens to kill him for looking Ichi’s way. But despite his gut telling him Ichi is bad news, Bobby can’t stop looking… or wanting.
Ichi was never one to play by the rules. Growing up in Japan as his father’s heir, he’d been bound by every rule imaginable until he had enough and walked away from everything to become his own man. Los Angeles was supposed to be a brief pitstop before he moved on, but after connecting with his American half-brothers, it looks like a good city to call home for a while—if it weren’t for Bobby Dawson.
Bobby is definitely a love-them-and-leave-them type, a philosophy Ichi whole-heartedly agrees with. Family was as much of a relationship as Ichi was looking for, but something about the gruff and handsome Bobby Dawson that makes Ichi want more.
Much, much more.
There will be no spoilers here! This installment of the Cole McGinnis “Dirty” series takes a bit a twist in this is entirely from Cole’s best friend, Bobby, and Cole’s brother Ichi’s points of view. I really liked this story, especially because of the dual POV between Ichi and Bobby.
Once again, Greg Tremblay makes this audio a winner. He is a BOSS! He brings this story to life in such an awesome way.
For me, it’s the narration makes Rhys Ford’s fantastic world building come to life.
I’m really looking forward to reading the final installment, well, listening to the final installment. I just hope Rhys Ford ties up all the loose ends with the Ben storyline…and maybe gives a little more from Jae’s POV too? A girl can hope!
