Newly named head of Quinn Security Investigations, retired detective Logan Jeffries believes in law and order. Everything should have its place. A personal life should never interfere with work. Relationships should have their own rules too. Logan lives by his own laws — five precisely. As long as he follows them, all is right in his regimented world.
Nate Jordan wishes he could say no when assigned to work with Logan. Nate has never forgotten Logan’s kindness the night they met. In the three years since, his crush has only grown. This partnership will surely end in disaster, but Nate cannot walk away.
Quickly, Logan and Nate delve into the search for a missing socialite. Nothing else should occupy Logan’s thoughts. The only problem? Nate is determined and sweet, and working with him awakens Logan’s deepest desires. Logan won’t break his laws, though. Not even for the gentlest, sexiest man in the world.
Meanwhile, Nate is falling harder and faster for Logan every day they’re together. The craziest damn thing is he thinks he senses attraction under Logan’s controlled facade. Nate will have to break every one of Logan’s laws to capture the man of his dreams.
Totally the best of the Quinn Security series, and can also be read as a standalone.
Each book in this series gets better and better, and I was kind of sad to realise that this was in fact the last.
You do actually meet both Logan and Nate in the previous book, albeit briefly. Logan lives by his rules, and they have allowed him to balance his private and personal lives for all his life, except of course he’s not happy. His long term lover cheated on him, and he’s been invalided from the police. Luckily he’s got his new job at Quinn Security and a new case to crack – as well as Nate to help him. Logan is prickly and difficult and in physical pain quite a bit.
Logan doesn’t really want to work with Nate, but he doesn’t have much of a choice – anyway one of his rules is you don’t get involved with people you work with.
Nate is Mr sunshine, a lovely warm and emphatic character, too nice really as he can’t seem to say no to anyone. He is, of course, totally in love with Logan, but believes that he’s actually straight.
Working the case of the missing girl exposes them to each other in ways that they never anticipated, and Logan starts to see that Nate could be his salvation, if he would only let down his guard and be honest with him. Due to the case, parts of this process happen very quickly, however the final push needs to come from Logan himself, and my goodness does it take some wringing out from him.
Logan is a complicated and well rounded character, and his opening up to Nate is fun to read. The sex scenes were better written as well, and I got a string sense of affection between the two men.
The crime story was good, and added enough contrast to the love story without drowning it out.
I was left wanting more Quinn Security, and am quite disappointed that there isn’t more.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
