Small but mighty—that could be Detective Nevin Ng’s motto. Now a dedicated member of the Portland Police Bureau, he didn’t let a tough start in life stop him from protecting those in need. He doesn’t take crap from anyone, and he doesn’t do relationships. Until he responds to the severe beating of a senior citizen and meets the victim’s bow-tied, wealthy landlord.
Property manager and developer Colin Westwood grew up with all the things Nevin never had, like plenty of money and a supportive, loving family. Too supportive, perhaps, since his childhood illness has left his parents unwilling to admit he’s a strong, grown man. Colin does do relationships, but they never work out. Now he’s thinking maybe he won’t just go with the flow. Maybe it’s time to try something more exciting. But being a witness to a terrible crime—or two—was more than he bargained for.
Despite their differences, Colin and Nevin discover that sparks fly when they’re together. But sparks are short-lived, dampened by the advent of brutal crimes, and Colin and Nevin have seemingly little in common. The question is whether they have the heart to build something lasting.
You there are those books that you read the description of and you think”I really want to read that book”. Then when you start reading it at first you are like “Do I really want to read this book after all”. But you continue to read it anyway because at first it is like a bad car accident, you don’t want to look and find out what is going to happen but you cannot resist because something has latched onto you and is making you look anyway. Then when you get to the end of the book you are like”what was I so doubtful about this book because it completely blew me away with how incredible of a read it was”. Well this was one of those books for me. I was skeptical once I started reading because I started to wonder if I was going to like it but at the same time something about this book would not let me put it down because even though I was questioning if I would like it or not, something in I had caught my attention and would not let it go. Boy at I glad about that because this book turned out to beyond amazing.
Bevin is such a smart mouthed individual that I did not know at first if I liked him or not. But the more I got to know his character the more I realized that a lot of his smartass comments that came from his mouth was made out of love towards those he holds closest to him. Bevin cares about those who cannot necessarily care for himself and that is why he is a detective that works in the division that works for elderly and and disabled adults. He may be sarcastic and brass but he has an amazing heart.
When he is pulled on a case to investigate the murders of some elderly people he meets Collin and the sarcastic remarks start immediately. At first Collin does not know what to make of Nevin but the more here two men are thrown together the more apparent it is that Nevin is attracted to Collin like he never has been before to anyone else.
Collin does not know why to make of Nevin at first but he does know that if he pushes anything with Nevin that Nevin will flea. So Collin takes the indirect approach with Nevin and just lets things happen as they are meant too. Which is new for Collin.
The closer they get the more Nevin realizes that this thing with Collin is different then anything he has ever experienced with anyone else and soon he also realizes that he loves what is happening between them so he lets it build like he has never done so before. The more things grow between them, the murders and the investigation is also heating up too and it is beginning to look like it is someone that is linked to Collin that is behind it but the question is who? Also will they come after Collin also? Theatbis when the unexpected happens and he killed decides it is time to take out not only. Olin but Nevin also.
Will theee two men be able to walk away after the murder is revealed or will one or both of them be the ne t victim?
This was an incredible read as I have already stated not only because of the relationship that blossomed with each turn of the page but because of the mystery of the murdered also. Once I really got to reading this book and past the first chapter I was hooked and could not put this book down. I look forward to the next book in this series when it comes out.
