Shades of Gray

What a great story. Miller Sutton is a FBI agent who lives his life in black and white. He's rigid and unbending and his only goal right now it to take down drug dealer Robert Hinestroza. Danny Butler works for Hinestroza and has been brought in by Miller on a petty traffic stop. Miller forces Danny into testifying against his boss despite Danny's repeated warnings that he's signing Danny's death warrant. Miller understands what Danny is saying but he doesn't care. His case is more important to him than Danny's life.

An immediate attempt on Danny's life forces Miller in to going into protective custody with Danny in an effort to keep him safe until the trial. Once he's locked up in an apartment with Danny for a few days Miller's carefully constructed life starts to fall apart. First Danny is nothing like Miller thought he would be. Danny's a nice guy. A nice guy who made some mistakes as a kid and who has paid over and over for those mistakes. Second, Miller is very sexually attracted to him. All of a sudden Miller has to face up to all of his own secrets and mistakes and his black and white life is now filled with shades of grey.

These two embark on a fast paced adventure and a heart breaking romance. The law enforcement part of the story moves along well and the guy's love story intermingles throughout. Both Danny and Miller are likable characters and I instantly connected to them both. Danny has such a sad history and poor Miller falls apart in front of us. There are some really beautiful and heart breaking moments between the two men. I also found the sex scenes to be well done and steamy.

There is a happily ever after at the end but the author puts her characters and her readers through a lot of emotions and heartbreak before they get there. I found this to be a really good read and I highly recommend it.

Book Blurb for Shades of Gray

Miller Sutton, a by-the-book FBI agent, is starting to see some troubling shades of gray in his black-and-white world. He comes face-to-face with his doubts in the person of Danny Butler, a mid-level drug runner Miller hopes to use to catch a much larger fish: Roberto Hinestroza, a drug lord Miller has pursued for years.

Danny has no interest in being a witness against his boss, both out of a sense of twisted loyalty and because he knows double-crossing Hinestroza is a sure death sentence. But he reluctantly agrees to cooperate, and as he suspects, it doesn’t take long for Hinestroza to figure out the betrayal.

Miller is surprised to discover Danny's not the career-criminal lowlife he expected; at the same time, Danny finds himself helplessly attracted to Miller's innate goodness. They barely begin to explore the sparking attraction between them when Hinestroza's hitman tracks them down, and then they're on the run, both for their lives and for any kind of love.
