State trooper Brandt’s new assignment to infiltrate a sex-cam operation puts him in a very uncomfortable position, especially since he’ll have to perform naked on camera for his audition. Fortunately his partner and best friend, Donnelly, has his back—whether that means helping Brandt shop gay boutiques for sexy underwear or offering Jäger and encouragement while he researches porn.
Despite his mortification, Brandt gives the audition his best “shot”—and becomes an overnight sensation. But to meet the man behind the operation, he’ll have to give a repeat performance, this time live on webcam opposite the highest bidder. Donnelly makes sure to win that auction for his partner’s sake, but their plan has a flaw: faking it is not an option.
In the aftermath, Brandt is a humiliated mess trying desperately to come to terms with what he’s had to do for the job and his own mixed feelings. But Donnelly has been on a journey of discovery of his own. Suddenly everything the two men thought they knew about themselves and each other gets turned inside out. Meanwhile, they still have a case to solve… but it may not be the case they thought it was.
Gitte: So Jenny I absolutely LOVED this book, what a surprising read, for so many reasons. I almost didn’t pick it up because I thought, at the time, this title is kind of cheesy and I wasn’t too keen on the cover, but then that’s me, I am a cover snob. However, this story was not only hot, it was so funny, sweet and most importantly very well written. This story was just what I needed!
Jenny: I absolutely agree GG. Great find and yes, it was all that and more. I will admit it, when you first said we should read this I wasn’t sure what to expect, given the title and the cover, I was the same. I thought it would be a bit of a cheesy romp but wow! How wrong was I? I absolutely loved this book. It was indeed well written and well, just an all ‘round fun, sweet, hot and entertaining read.
Gitte: I thought this story was really well paced. We got to know the characters, connect with them and fall love with them, as the story unfolded naturally. The intrigue had me guessing all the way through and there were just enough twists and thrills in regard to the undercover case which Brandt was working on. Gabriel and Ethan were gorgeous and so lovable; especially Gabriel, I have to say he had me *sighing*, he was such a funny and “take me as I come” character, with a hint of vulnerability too. I wanted to cuddle him so many times in this story. Now, Ethan, umm wow…shower scene!! What is it about shower scenes??
Jenny: Without a doubt GG! I definitely connected with Troopers, Ethan Brandt and Gabrielle Donnelly (geez, even their names are hot!) and absolutely loved the interaction between these two.
Both characters brought so much to the story and both these men were such relatable and loveable characters and ummm yeah, THAT shower scene…..gulp!!!! The story was indeed well paced and I especially loved how the author tested the waters with their relationship and let it build in its own time right to the end. It wasn’t rushed and it certainly wasn’t slow. Yes, this story unfolded perfectly for me.
Gitte: Okay Jenny, so what did I love? I loved the friendship between Gabriel and Ethan. I loved the comical scenes with them on their shopping trips, the “handholding” when things went outside the comfort zone, as well as the “pretend Chess scene”. I loved that once the “discovery” had been made how sweet they went about trying things out. It wasn’t full on; it was hesitant and loving from the start. I LOVED Bryce…seriously I wish I knew a Bryce because he has to be one of the most FAB-U-LUSH and vivacious characters I have come across oh and Nestor…the pair of them…hilarious. Seriously Jenny, can you imagine us two on a night out with them…how FUN would that be!!
Jenny: Haha! GG the shopping trips floored me!!! Two “heterosexual” guys shopping in a gay shopping precinct made for some fun reading. There were so many funny lines on those shopping trips I would have been highlighting for pages. Bryce absolutely killed me. He was gorgeous and so bloody funny!
“Your panties need to say, “Tear me off, for I contain wonders!” Those say, “Look away while I complete your tax forms”
I loved the comical discussions they had: “what do you think women use theirs for? Shooting out doves at weddings?” (folks you’ll have to read the book to understand that one haha) and yes, I absolutely loved seeing these two outside their comfort zone and how they reacted. The relationship was handled so well and it was never rushed nor felt contrived.
Gitte: Now I have no idea whether or not the straight to gay psychology in this story is realistic, but I have to say I don’t really care. I think this story has some great emotional moments, fab humour, and intrigue and yeah it was hot!! I read it in one sitting because I could simply not put it down.
Jenny: Oh me neither! I don’t care if any of it’s true or realistic. It didn’t matter to me because I was swept up in this story. I just loved it for what it brought and how I felt reading it. I enjoyed the emotional, the funny, the steam factor and I enjoyed the warmth of the characters both main and secondary. They all brought something to the table and made this such an enjoyable read that we both couldn’t put down.
