The PI Guys: Book Two
Screenwriter Noah Ashley has a few four-letter words for his agent when she suggests he improve his script by shadowing a PI. Still, because he’s an artist dedicated to his craft and she knows where the bodies are buried, he agrees. Then he spends a little time with the gorgeous PI, and suddenly it seems like a really good plan. The PI doesn’t seem to entirely love the idea, but Noah has never been afraid to go after what he wants.
PI Drew Rodriguez is used to people depending on him. He’s the classic rock for his family. Responsible. Dependable. The classic rock would never succumb to the borderline sleazy temptation of friends with benefits, no matter how sexy that temptation is. Drew is looking for something enduring.
Despite Drew’s misgivings, it’s not long before they’ve got all the requisites for friends with benefits going. Friendly, good conversation? Check. Fun times in and out of bed? Check. Hot, electrolyte-sapping sex? Double check. Falling in love? Yeah. About that….
This story started out a bit slow for me. There was a lot of time devoted to setup and character development which for a while could not hold my attention. But I am glad I stuck this on out because once everything fell into place, it worked. All that slow buildup had a purpose and really enhanced the growth and development once these men got together. The thread of family gave the reader a secondary storyline while also making it clear why these men had a connection beyond just physical attraction. They were kindred souls and I loved the way they loved, even when they refused to use the word.
I like Michael Stellman for the narrator of this story. He does not do unique voices, but he easily captured the essence of each character so that it was easy to know who was speaking and when. He also did a great job of portraying the emotions of the story. I enjoyed feeling the tug at my heartstrings when they characters were hurting as well as that giddiness when they finally got their heads out of their asses. This narration greatly enhanced my enjoyment of this story.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
