Matthew Elliot is one of LA’s best detectives. He’s been labelled the golden boy of the Fab Four; a team of four detectives who’ve closed down drug-rings all over the city. He’s smart, tough and exceptionally good at his job.

He’s also a closeted gay man.

Enter Kira Takeo Franco, the new boxing coach at the gym. Matthew can’t deny his immediate attraction to the man his fellow cops know as Frankie. But in allowing himself to fall in love with a man known to his colleagues, Matthew risks outing them both. Matt and Kira work to keep their relationship and private lives hidden from Matt’s very public life, fearing it would be detrimental to their careers.

But it’s not the other cops who Matthew should be worried about finding out his deepest, darkest secret… it’s the bad guys.

My View:

Point of No Return was my first NR Walker title years ago. It was also part of my early M/M Romance education. Kira and Matt remain one of my favorite fictional M/M couples.

Let’s face it, you don’t get more badass than Kira. Add in his obviously adoration for Matt and the fact that he is 100% a momma’s boy, you can’t help but love him. Matt is a bit of a lost boy. Raised by his single mom and orphaned at 17, he has made his way in the world without a family. He has also hidden himself away for fear of losing what he has worked so hard to build.

In Kira, Matt finally finds a reason to come out of hiding. Add in a little mystery, some good friends, and some seriously kick ass fight sequences, you have a fun read. I will admit Matt and his team miss some pretty obvious clues along the way. Though, to be fair, I have read this book three times now; I can’t remember what I thought about the mystery on first read.

The angst level is surprisingly low for as tense as some of the turns the investigation takes are. You know that Matt, Kira, and the rest of the Fab Four will come out the other end stronger for the struggle.
