I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...
This story is roughly about 55 pages long... You get two stories in one. So, you are figuring out that each story is about (give or take) about 25 pages a piece. So, I cannot give the review I normally I do because I do not want too give away to much of the books.
I do have to say that is was my first book by Jude Mason. For sure, this will not be my last.
These are two awesome writers that have combined their skills together.
In Ms. Jenna's story, Willing, Colt Willing is a man bent on protecting those he loves, no matter what side of the law they are on. What side of the law is Colt on? Being on the wrong side is a very dangerous side to play on... especially when the man you love is working for the top dog of the wrong side. But at what cost would you give of yourself to protect your self or family?
Ms. Jenna's story is very riveting. The drama builds with paragraph you read. Wanting to know what happens will drive you to the end.
A peek into the story..."Heart near bursting, Colt looked into his man’s eyes. The expression he read on the handsome face told him everything he needed to know. “I love you,” he uttered for the first time, and held his breath, waiting for a reaction."
In Ms. Jude's story, well it ties to Ms. Jenna story. These two author play very well together. This is the continuation of the story Ms. Jenna created and sucked us into. This is the story of Willing's ex-partner Detective D.J. Able. With a fallen officer and the clock ticking, how does one man try to make it all balance? Able is a determined man and you will see just how determined he is... Ms. Jude keeps the momentum rolling in this story. You will see how all sides of the law collide and how things get done.
Another peek into Able's story... "Able checked his watch. The man was right. They’d both been on overtime for six hours. Captain wasn’t likely to complain, not under the circumstances, but if they fucked up because they were too tired to think straight, he’d hang them both, by the balls. “Yeah, you’re right. The next shift’ll be glad to take over.”
I commend these ladies for a story well done. The stories complimented each other very well.
