When runaway Kip Faulkner was seventeen, he witnessed two men commit a murder. Fear kept him from telling Sheriff Long the truth about what he’d seen. Guilt made him turn his life around. Eleven years later, he’s the owner of a reputable private investigation agency in Denver.

John Rigby looks like a typical biker, tattoos and all. But Kip discovers he’s the antithesis of that stereotype when he hires John to work for his agency.

When Kip learns about a recent killing exactly like the one he witnessed and recognizes one of the killers in a blurry photo on the news, he vows to find out how the two murders are connected … and if there have been more.

With John’s help, can he learn the truth behind the murders while the two men fight their mutual attraction? Or will Kip become the next victim?

The first chapter fast forwards through Kip’s circumstances: who he is, why and how he became private investigator. Now he is at the point of hiring someone to split workload with and it turns out that he would also like for the guy to take on a more personal role in his life.

When murder he witnesses comes back to haunt him, John shows up to be staunch ally. It’s formulaic plot, which makes it easy to read. It’s definition of comfort story. Simple yet engaging plot, enough sparks in relationship to keep things interesting and likeable characters. I went through it in one day.
Look it up for something easy and uncomplicated.
