Book Review

This is definitely a fun little story with a nice twist on the "rent boy and cop" theme. While there is Iots of heat between the detective and the man he thinks he should not be falling for, a stripper and suspected prostitute, there is also an underlying real attraction and a need on both sides for more than a hookup or fling. With enough storyline around some undercover work and a drug bust, the story, though very short, is definitely complete.

Matt is new to the city, and trying to establish himself as a detective. The ink on his paperwork for reassignment isn’t even dry yet when he gets propositioned by "Lucky", and promptly arrests him for solicitation. From then on, the story twists and turns, but I can't say much more because that would spoil the surprise. But let me tell you, all the cloak and dagger was a fun addition to what is also a story of new love, despite the circumstances and enough misunderstandings to bring me close to despair.

If you like short stories with a twist you are aware of but one of the main characters isn't, if you enjoy reading about rent boys "making good", and if you're looking for a short, sweet read about a sexy detective and his quarry, then you will probably like this free short story.
