Sergeant Corbin ‘Syn’ Sydney had dedicated his life to becoming the best detective. So when he heard there was an opening on the notorious Atlanta Narcotics Task Force, he jumped at the chance. But, what he wasn’t ready for was realizing just how lonely he’d made himself, when he observed the loving and dedicated relationship between the two men he served under: Lieutenant Cashel ‘God’ Godfrey and Lieutenant Leonidis Day.
Syn prepared himself to accept his lonely fate until he walked into a small pub and met the long-haired, tattooed bartender, Furious Barkley. Before Syn can even understand why, he’s overcome with feelings he barely recognizes: passion, yearning, craving. And if the dark, lustful gazes are anything to go by, Furious might be feeling the same things for him.
Just two thing needs to happen before Syn and Furi can give each other what’s been missing from their lives for so long…Syn needs to find the evidence that proves Furi’s innocence of murder, as well as protect him from a past that refuses to let go.
God, Day, Ronowski, and Johnson are still as entertaining as ever…
You’ll swoon over God’s massive take-charge attitude…
You’ll laugh hysterically at Day’s never-ending wit…
You’ll fall in love with Furious’ mysterious, sexy demeanor…
You’ll embrace Syn…

This review is from 10/02/2014 and the first edition of the story.*
Book two in the Nothing Special series didn’t disappoint!
The story is a good, fun, funny sexy read and I loved the opportunity to see what God, Day and the team have been up to. I loved that the story doesn’t shy away from one of it’s main plots of domestic abuse, which so often gets batted aside for juicer plots. I also loved the chemistry between Syn and Furi.
While I did think the epilogue felt a bit rushed, I enjoyed the story overall, and can’t wait to continue the series!
My biggest complaint is the editing and proofreading. Instead of immersing myself in the book, I was pretty consistently pulled from the storyline because of bad grammar or punctuation.*
*Note: A second edition has been released with further edits and proofreading.
