Uniformed careers are a matter of choice and of sacrifice – military, fire, police, forest service, etc. – and the people who choose these careers are often dedicated to a fault. But sometimes dedication can come with a hefty price. Behind the Uniform illustrates the physical or emotional sacrifice and the hard choices that sometimes come with such all-consuming dedication.

A Wolf in Cop’s Clothing by Toni Griffin
Marcus Holland loves his job as a small town cop and his life with his pack. When his mate, Brian, kissed him goodbye that morning and remarked, “This is Leyburn. What trouble could I possibly find?” Marcus really hoped never to find out. He had no idea how much those words would come back to haunt him as he goes about his duties.

It’s the Hat by Jon Keys
Forest ranger Matt Keller’s frustrations mount as he tries to bust a poaching ring in a Michigan national forest and now he’s discovered that Kyle, the gorgeous waiter he desperately wants to ask out, has an ex-boyfriend hanging around. The ex is bad news, Kyle says it’s complicated, and Matt’s not sure which way to jump. Just as Matt’s puzzling things out with Kyle, his pursuit of the poachers takes a dangerous turn and he could risk losing all the pieces he’s fought so hard to juggle.

The Head Shed by Gregory L. Norris
Milo Hanover is proud to manage a Head Shed. He and the sex workers he supervises are vital to the morale and sanity of troops fighting a ruthless alien invader. When Colonel Dunnegin arrives at the Shed, though, it isn’t for the usual reason. He reveals that humanity needs Milo for the secrets carried in his genetic code rather than his enthusiastic service. In the desperate race to get Milo to the front, he battles his own heart even as he’s thrust into the battleground for humanity’s survival.

My View:

This was an interesting look at a few different stories. I enjoyed all three stories but none of them blew me away.

A Wolf in Cop’s Clothing by Toni Griffin features Brian and Marcus from her Holland Brothers series. You don’t need to have read the other books to enjoy this story. Griffin does a decent job of showing their connection that when Marcus is placed in a life or death situation I cared about the outcome. I wasn’t as involved in the part of the story where they decide to add to their family but readers of the series would probably be more into that part. 3.5 stars.

It’s the Hat by Jon Keys had interesting characters and a plot that I think could’ve been good. In the end the use of the crazy ex as an over-the-top bad guy ruined the story for me. 3 stars.

The Head Shed by Gregory L. Norris was the best of the set. It was a unique take on the rent boy cliché. It was hot and romantic and erotic and not for the faint of heart. 4 stars.
