Blurb: A murder in a small Colorado town closely resembles unsolved crimes committed by a serial killer almost thirty years ago. Private investigator Teague Donovan learns of the recent murder and is instantly drawn to the case, because one of the victims in the past was his best friend, and he is determined to bring the killer to justice.
Hoyt Newman, the detective in charge of the most recent case, is none too happy with Teague’s interfering. At least not until a second homeless boy is tortured and killed. As the two men work together, they begin to develop an interest in each other — one that seems fated not to come to fruition since Teague is city, through and through, and Hoyt is definitely country to the core.
Review: Once more Edward has written a book that is off the charts and perfect. If there was a way for me to give it more than five stars I would do it. You get sexy men, men with guns, deranged killers, hot sex, action, dangerous situations and pure heat. Although I wasn’t so sure that I was not going to kill Teague myself. Sometimes the older you get the weirder you get.
Teague had been best friends with Chris and had the start of a relationship that is until Chris’s aunt found out. The bitch kicked Chris out and he ended up staying with Teague till graduation. Then he decided to leave. No one had heard from him, until two years ago when his body was finally identified. He had been murdered. Teague wanted to get the killer but until recently there had not been one that matched it. A few murders and then twenty years with zip, now the murders are starting again. He knew he had to get the detective in charge to recognize that it is a copycat serial killer. What he had not expected was the attraction to Hoyt.
Hoyt was a top country cop with an attitude. He didn’t much care to have someone stepping on his toes but damn Teague was out of this world sexy. He seemed to know what he wanted how to get it. Teague was a top-notch private investigator that owned his own company in the city. Now all they had to do is to catch the killer of young gay homeless men. Then the heat gets hotter for them both and they have to figure out how to make a relationship work with thirteen hours between them either way.
Now this is one story that I hope has a sequel or a book two because damn it was good. I also got a kick out of the kid that works for Teague. Keir is one young man who was a bratty matchmaker as well as an undercover agent. I loved him even though he was in and out of the story. You can tell within the first paragraph how well the story is going to go and if the author put their heart into it, and this would be one of those stories.
I had a blast with this story and would recommend it. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. I think of all the romances and mysteries this one is my favorite. I do love a good book but when you have a story that has so meat to it is sold. Then you add in two men who carry guns and I am there. It was amazing and I cannot wait to read the next story Edward puts out.
