Detective Cashel “Cash” Godfrey is big, tattooed, and angry so people typically keep their distance. He’s fresh out of the police academy, however, no one is looking to partner with the six-foot-four beast with a huge chip on his shoulder and an inability to trust. When Cash scans the orientation room he wasn’t expecting to find sexy hazel eyes locked onto him. Eyes of the handsome Detective Leonidis “Leo” Day.

Leo is charming, witty, hilariously sarcastic and the only one that can make Cash smile. He’s proud, out, and one bad-ass detective.

Together, Cash and Leo become the most revered and successful narcotics detectives Atlanta’s ever seen. Able to communicate and understand each other, without even having to voice it, they quickly climb up the promotional ranks.

When Cash saves Leo’s life in a raid that turns deadly, Leo begins to see something in the big man that no one else does…something special. But Leo fears he’ll never break through the impenetrable wall that protects Cash’s heart.

Bloody hell was that good! And hot. Like H.O.T.

Cashel “God” Godfrey and Leonidis “Leo” Day are partners in the narcotics division of the Atlanta PD. Day is out and proud and God is someone you don’t want to piss off.

Leo knows that God has secrets, but he has no idea how long the list of them is until he realizes he has feelings for the tattooed hunk and stirs the pot of his past.

I loved that I didn’t have to wait forever for God and Day to realize their feelings for each other. The story line progressed quickly, unearthing secrets and haunted pasts and so much love. Love that brought on steamy sex scenes hot enough to light up a skyscraper at midnight.

I also loved their relationship with Ro and Johnson. It was intense and full of passion and understanding as well as mutual respect and it was just perfect.

This was my first book with narrator Aiden Snow and it will not be my last. Holy balls of lust, his smooth, deep, guttural voice for God was a wonder. The hostage speech scene was so real, raw and emotional I felt like I was there, living the moment in the building with the team. His dynamic voice was brilliant and each character was so unique and individual. Aiden Snow’s range of talent is epic.

Very much recommended, both for the engaging story and the narration.

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after.
