Blurb: To find a family heirloom a man must ask for help from another who he has been fighting his attraction for. They join forces and find that they have more in common than either expected.

Detective Hunter Montgomery finds himself personally involved when a family heirloom is stolen. To find the culprits of the robbery ring he has to approach Brooks-the one man who pushes all his buttons. He is attracted to Brooks but knows he’ll never go after him, since they’re looking for different things. They form an unlikely alliance to track down the heirlooms. As they work together, Hunter can’t figure Brooks out. The man comes across as if nothing bothers him, yet when Hunter asks for his help Brooks not only agrees he becomes more to him than Hunter expects. As the case gets more complicated, so do his interactions with Brooks. The need he feels flares and Hunter is unable to resist the temptation of Brooks. As the heat between them rises, so does the danger in the case they both want solved.

Brooks Walters is willing to work with Hunter even if the man doesn’t like him. Since their first meeting, Brooks has gone out of his way to antagonize the usually infallible detective. Each and every time the man gets annoyed and rude with him, Brooks finds it is more amusing than anything else is. There is something about the tall, sexy detective that he finds irresistible. Hunter has all the things he likes in a man-he’s loyal, protective and is able to match wits with Brooks. When the case he is working on with Hunter heats up so does their passion. With each new clue on the robberies, it becomes apparent that the case is more complicated that either of them had known. Brooks will go out of his way to make sure the man who has slid into his life will succeed in their Wicked Alliance.

Review: This is book two in this series and you really need to read book one. It gives you a heads up on the characters and you will love it more.

Hunter and Brook had met when Hunter came to find out who had shot at Brooks best friends brother. Let me tell you these two fought like cats and dogs when they first met. Seems like a good foreplay to me. I loved the way they act together. It will give you a good laugh. Brook calls Hunter idiot when he is mildly irritated at him and detective when he is royally pissed off at him. This actually means, for most part, he calls him detective. They are always going at it. This makes it even that more heated up.

Hunter has really taken a liking to Brook. He even liked the way they argued, just made everything hotter. However, he knew that deep down this was a man he would want for all times and it was returned in spades. These two men get together and they set the sheets on fire. In this story Hunters mom’s jewelry and a clock were stolen when Brook had sent them out. Hunter goes to Brook to ask him for his help and actually gets more than he bargains for, but at least he gets his man.

He gets his man for life and he is happier with it. They both are stubborn and mule headed but you can tell that their love will be deep and strong. I love this story almost as much as I loved book one. Talia gives you wonderful characters in all of her stories and she never disappoints you. She has a wonderful gift at telling a story and will always be one of my favorite authors.

I would recommend this story to anyone who loves hot and sexy cops, gorgeous military men who own a gallery, two sexy men coming together for all time, lots of danger and excitement. Not to mention the love and sex so full of passion it will make you fall in love with everyone.
