Review: Years after a vicious beating by his ex partner on the force Detective Dade Pope is doing all he can to take down the bad guys. With hardly any support from the LAPD that is easier said than done. One night he meets sexy Homeland Security Investigator Felix Jbarra who is undercover at the time during an arrest. After said arrest Dades world is turned upside down when he’s threatened with arrest among other things. Felix on the other hand knows he’s innocent.
I loved this story. Two law enforcement officers one veteran, one new, one faces bigotry everyday on the job by his ex partner, the other has a partner who seems for all intense and purposes to be there for him. These two couldn’t be any different than night and day yet they worked well together in the field.
Hot sexy scenes, a lot of loving and suspense keep you on the rollercoaster of mystery while they try to solve a child trafficking case. Great cast of characters old and new show up in this awesome story.
I am looking forward to reading more about these two as well as the others and to see if Preston Redding ever gets whats coming to him.
Fantastic read and highly recommended.
