Native American Quinn and Detective Jake come from two opposing worlds. But when opposites attract, the result is explosive.
The Bondage Butcher has just claimed his third victim, and newly promoted homicide detective Jake Gutierrez is anxious to speak to the one man who has been intimate with all three victims—Quinn Verdugo. The reclusive and mysterious artist and poet stays just out of Jake’s grasp, until one night when they catch him trespassing at his ancestor’s ancient ruins.
Quinn is devastated by the recent murders, and for the men he once dallied with. Not trusting his heart to anyone since a cruel rejection in his teens, he trusts the police department of Mesa, Arizona even less. He is determined to find the bastard who is committing these gruesome murders, and take care of things himself.
When Jake and Quinn finally meet face to face in the interrogation room, both men are startled at the direction things take. Agreeing to work together, they have no idea the dangers they have yet to face. But what is more dangerous—the murderer, or the spark that has been created between the two very combustible men?
Reader Advisory: This book contains mild BDSM elements, graphic murder descriptions. Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.
Okay, if you read my review of book one in the Uniform Encounters series, you know that I was less than impressed. I was hoping for better from book two and got it.
While Arresting Behavior didn’t blow me away, it was an enjoyable and sweet couple of hours. Though it did still include unnecessary, and irrelevant, sex scenes between one of the main characters and a throwaway character. You know how much that bugs me. As for the mystery, it was intriguing. It wasn’t completely obvious though I guessed right and was pretty confident in my guess; there were enough potential baddies that it kept me interested.
As for the conclusion to the mystery, the romance, and the main characters life. They felt mostly genuine. I appreciated how the author handled the main detective’s reaction to the final scenes. I appreciated that they didn’t just walk off into the sunset with everything hunky dory.
I will be continuing this series. I won’t say it is a favorite, but it is on par with what I need right now. Low angst, a little tension and a lot of loving.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
