Native American Quinn and Detective Jake come from two opposing worlds. But when opposites attract, the result is explosive.
The Bondage Butcher has just claimed his third victim, and newly promoted homicide detective Jake Gutierrez is anxious to speak to the one man who has been intimate with all three victims—Quinn Verdugo. The reclusive and mysterious artist and poet stays just out of Jake’s grasp, until one night when they catch him trespassing at his ancestor’s ancient ruins.
Quinn is devastated by the recent murders, and for the men he once dallied with. Not trusting his heart to anyone since a cruel rejection in his teens, he trusts the police department of Mesa, Arizona even less. He is determined to find the bastard who is committing these gruesome murders, and take care of things himself.
When Jake and Quinn finally meet face to face in the interrogation room, both men are startled at the direction things take. Agreeing to work together, they have no idea the dangers they have yet to face. But what is more dangerous – the murderer, or the spark that has been created between the two very combustible men?
Reader Advisory: This book contains mild BDSM elements, graphic murder descriptions
Reader Advisory: Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.
I love reading these books, but saddens me that the struggles described throughout the pages are still very real. Morticia writes raw and edgy romances between very unlikely couples. A cop and a serial killer suspect? lol. The mystery around the murders was well plotted and the sex scenes were extremely smoking! Quinn had it hard growing up because he knew he was gay and that just wasn't accepted on the rez. He became withdrawn from his society that didn't accept his choices. Jake, however, was in a situation quite the opposite. His family was very accepting of his choices and embraced his path. Their differences added to the amazing chemistry between the two. I can't wait to read more in this series!!
