Review: Will Cooper is the new deputy at Gray Harbour’s Sheriff’s office. During a routine stop gone bad, with some teenagers from the local Native American tribe, Will inadvertently makes enemies within the tribe. He came to Gray Harbour after an incident at his previous job because one, he needed to get as far away from there as possible; and two, no one else would hire him. The local Sheriff took a chance on Will and the last thing he wants to do is let him down.
Colin Sharpe is a youth counsellor for the Native American Tribe, working with the teenagers at the school. After two local teens steal a car, get caught by Deputy Will and the wrong teen pepper sprayed, Colin’s dad and the council go after Will. Colin knows that the gorgeous, shy man he met that took care of one of the teens after the incident instead of locking him up, could not possibly have done what the other teen is claiming.
The elder Sharpe has no love for the white man. In fact, when his son Colin told him he was gay he responded, “Better you be gay than bring home a white woman!” not even kidding. So when Colin and Will start seeing each other, they keep it secret from everyone. It was actually supposed to be just one lust filled night. Both men could get their fill and be done. But the mutual attraction, white-hot chemistry and ability to curl each other’s toes in the bed made it very hard to just walk away. They begin a whirlwind affair that could have disastrous results not just for their relationship, but for their jobs and families as well.
What I love about Boehme’s books is that the reader gets to take a ride through the mind of a gay man who is not afraid to tell you exactly what happens when two young, virile men act on a mutual attraction and an exuberant lust for one another. You seriously need to turn the thermostat down just a notch before reading this book. It is oh so hot and steamy. But there is some enthusiastic writing underneath all the passion. The storyline was engaging and believable, and the character development was sustained throughout.
Boehme is quickly becoming a one click buy for me, just because his name is on the book. Definitely a must read for fans of the genre, but there is that sexy romantic vibe in there as well. My only complaint here is the cover. I think the cover artist was trying to show Boehme’s descriptions of the characters with Colin having that rich coppery skin tone in contrast with Will’s pale flawless skin, it didn’t blend well. But that has nothing to do with the story so no marks off. LOVED IT!!
