Michael Knight is an excellent undercover cop and could take a joke. However, the recent jokes and pranks from his co-workers in regards to his name went too far when they messed with his truck. His fury leads to him walking out on the job he loves and a desire to hit something or someone, like the guy leaning on his truck.

Aaron Slade has worked alone undercover for the International Narcotics Enforcement & Tracking agency for years. When he’s sent to meet his new partner, one he doesn’t even want, sparks fly.
Fists soon follow as Slade deals with Knight’s anger management issues over everything, but especially his I.N.E.T. training. All Knight wants is to be back in the field with his new partner, but it turns out that isn’t the only thing Knight wants from Slade.

This book contains M/M sexual situations and graphic depictions of I.V. drug use. This novel is intended for readers of legal age in the country in which they reside.

My View:

I really enjoyed this one and as the first book in a new series it was a great introduction to I.N.E.T. and the world they work in.

I actually reviewed a shorter version of this story in Uniform: A Man in Uniform Bundle and this is what I wrote:

Brenda always writes about tough alpha males and Slade and Knight are very tough and all alpha. Knight is having the day from hell on the vice unit and it’s not the perps that are making his life difficult. The rest of the office, in fact the rest of the station, is getting a buzz winding him up over his name. It went past funny weeks ago but when someone messes with his truck it’s a step too far.

Slade is witness to the disregard and bigoted attitude Knights boss shows him and he doesn’t blame the man for storming out. Slade is there to give Knight the good news that he has been recruited for a new job but can’t get the man to calm down enough to tell him. Between punch bags, sizzling attraction and a little bit of dominance Slade needs to show Knight he is on his side and he’s not the bad guy. This pair are hot together!

In this full length story we get to see what happens after Knight is recruited and he is definitely not the easiest trainee the training facility has had to deal with but he may well be the smartest. He is hot tempered, frustrated and spends much of his time amusing himself and preventing boredom setting in by setting up his classmates in their assignments. He is also strongly attracted to his partner, in fact strongly doesn’t even begin to cover it, their sparring sessions are epic.

I can’t wait to see where Brenda takes this series. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to find out and I have my fingers crossed we get to see more of Slade and Knight on the way.
