Blurb: Cosmo Ruckman is very good at breaking and entering. He’s had years of practice, starting from the time he was a child. Despite his criminal past, he manages to earn a spot on the Demon Elite team. Cosmo has had a mad crush on Derek Kyle from the first moment he met him. Since Derek never gave him the time of day, moving on was easy when Demon Elite left the agency. Cosmo hasn’t thought about Derek in months. Now, he’s assigned the task of breaking into the man’s house and office. He just hopes that Derek has nothing to hide, because it could mean the man’s death.
Review: I have to admit I haven’t read any of the other books in this series and I was a bit disappointed to realize there is nothing paranormal about this. The Demon Elite is a name of a squad of men who work outside the military system for “good”.
In this case, Cosmo is an ex-criminal who is working for the Elite as a break-in expert. He’s been crushing on Derek for a long time and the current mission throws him into Derek’s path.
When Cosmo gets injured in the line of duty, the truth finally comes out and the two have a lot of talking to do!
This is a sweet story about a guy who thinks he’s not good enough for his crush only to find out his crush is crushing on him back. Cosmo also has been saving himself for love – so there’s a little sweet viriginal thing going on as well.
Most of the story is just about the mission and a bit of sexual tension, but it was an easy and sweet love story with a bit of humor and a small bit of steam at the end.
All in all – even though there wasn’t even one Demon in this – it was pretty good!
Overall Impression: I liked it
