Blurb:  Teen shelter volunteer Rich searches for love until Diego, from LVMPD Search and Rescue, finds him.>

After declaring his love life officially dead, Rich wonders if maybe he should stick with his shifter book boyfriends instead. It’s not as if he has much free time to date anyway. Between working long hours at a coffee shop, guarding his sodas from his hygienically challenged roommates, and running the programming at the Vegas LGBTQ teen shelter he founded—how could there ever be space for love in his life?

Diego Espinoza enjoys taking his downtime from working Search and Rescue, at the Lucky Cup coffee shop. He can set up his laptop, peruse good sport climbing spots and observe the blond barista he’s been pining over for a while. He imagines that the pretty boy has more offers than he knows what to do with, so it takes Diego time to work up the nerve to approach him.

Rich isn’t so sure about the rough looking Diego—even if he’s always thought he was hot—but once he decides to gives Diego a chance, there’s an immediate heat and connection that takes him by surprise. As they learn more about each other and try to find the way to a future together, strange and scary things start to happen.

It isn’t until Rich is injured in a bizarre accident that it becomes clear that there’s someone out there who not only doesn’t want Rich to find love—they want him dead.


Review: Rich works at a coffee shop and volunteers at the LGBT shelter. (This is book 6 in a series, and though it’s a stand alone, several other couples make a return in this book.) He sees Diego fairly often, but always assumed he was gay. He’s shocked when Diego asks him out, but psyched to go.

Diego and Rich have a fairly instant connection, they just click. Their chemistry is off the charts and everything goes their way. The only fly in the ointment is that ever since Rich saw a woman shoved out of a car with a bullet in her brain, someone is trying to kill him!


This was a very low angst story full of hot sex and lots of kissey/huggey moments. Diego and Rich are ooey gooey sweet with one another and it’s an easy romance for them.

The mystery is a little tense but a lot predictable and not a big part of the story.

If you’re in the mood for a very easy going, light romance with hot smexy times – this is your book.

Overall Impression: I liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
