There are good guys, bad guys, and then there’s Lucky.
Former drug trafficker Richmond “Lucky” Lucklighter flaunts his past like a badge of honor. He speaks his mind, doesn’t play nice, and flirts with disaster while working off his sentence with the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. If he can keep out of trouble a while longer he’ll be a free man–after he trains his replacement.
Textbook-quoting, by the book Bo Schollenberger is everything Lucky isn’t. Lucky slurps coffee, Bo lives caffeine free. Lucky worships bacon, Bo eats tofu. Lucky trusts no one, Bo calls suspects by first name. Yet when the chips are down on their shared case of breaking up a drug diversion ring, they may have more in common than they believe.
Two men. Close quarters. Friction results in heat. But Lucky scoffs at partnerships, no matter how thrilling the roller-coaster. Bo has two months to break down Lucky’s defenses… and seconds are ticking by.
When I started this novel I was unsure of how I felt. Who was this Lucky fellow, was he a good guy or a bad guy? But as the story progressed, I figured out what was going on a realized I truly enjoyed this reading experience.
I liked the plot. It was interesting and something that has not been done to death. It kept me on my toes wanting more. What was going to happen next? Would they get caught? In addition to the suspense, I learned about an industry I had no knowledge of. I had no clue what all went into drug handling, etc. I enjoyed the education. I wanted to keep reading because I wanted to know more about both the outcome as well as what the characters were doing along the way.
In addition, the characters and their relationship were likeable. Lucky was very snarky and Bo gave him a run for his money. I loved seeing the connection between these two men sneak up on them. Lucky was so determined to keep Bo out of his heart. He was rude and sarcastic and used any excuse to shove his temporary nature in Bo’s face. But in the end, it was really useless and love bit him on the ass and changed him.
I also felt that the sex was realistic. It wasn’t all porn star quality with huge dicks and everlasting orgasms between two hard bodied perfectly sculpted men. It was randomly timed. It was imperfect yet HOT. It was put off in favor of more sleep. It was not the central focus of the growing relationship. I lied reading about something that reminded me of my life. It made me feel even more connected to these men.
Diversion is a very good start to this series. It was well written and easy to read. I can’t wait to see the next phase of Bo and Lucky’s relationship.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
