Blurb: Alejandro Santos is a sharp as nails detective who’s been struck with a spell of boring cases. He’s left unstimulated and unhappy. That is until Griffin walks in through the doors of Stonewall Investigations and suddenly everything changes.
Griffin Banks is the son of a tech mogul and, from the outside in, appears to have everything set. But Griffin’s battling intense demons of his own. Things get exponentially worse when he wakes up from a drug and alcohol-fueled blackout to find his friend in his living room. His dead friend. Someone murdered her and left him behind.
Griffin’s case is exactly what Alejandro was looking for, and Alejandro happened to be exactly whom Griffin was looking for.
When powerful sparks begin to fly between the two, both men will be faced with new challenges. They’ll be tested in ways neither would have ever seen coming. Griffin and Alejandro will need to navigate a winding, treacherous road on their journey to finding happiness together.
Review: Alejandro worked for Stonewall Investigations, in fact it was Zane that brought him on. He was good at his job so when Griffin showed up, he knew he would get to the bottom of it. He just hadn’t expected to like him so much.
Griffin had been diagnosed as bi-polar at the age of fourteen. After his mom’s death, he took to drinking pretty heavy, and even lost contact with his father. Here he was on med’s and drinking, not a good combination. Which is how he ended up on the couch with a dead body on the floor. His roommate was murdered and he had no clue. He needed help in more ways then one.
Well the focus was more on Griffin’s problems but the romance was also there. There was a bit mentioned about the serial killer again, but didn’t focus on it as much. This one was more love and sexy time then action packed. It was better than the first one, but still a little on the dull side. It does flow at a slower pace then one would expected but it was still told pretty good.
I did enjoy it, but my attention was not captured throughout the story like it should have. I can honestly say that this will not be one of those stories read more than once or twice. I liked Alejandro more than I liked Griffin and connected with him. Griffin just came off strange, but for some reason it made him feel more real to me. The story might not be what I would like, but it does feel like people you know and hang with.
Overall it is a very good story, well told, and something I would recommend.
