PI Jackson Rivers grew up on the mean streets of Del Paso Heights and he doesn't trust cops, even though he was one. When the man he thinks of as his brother is accused of killing a police officer in an obviously doctored crime, Jackson will move heaven and earth to keep Kaden and his family safe.
Defense attorney Ellery Cramer grew up with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth, but that hasn't stopped him from crushing on street-smart, swaggering Jackson Rivers for the past six years. But when Jackson asks for his help defending Kaden Cameron, Ellery is out of his depth and not just with guarded, prickly Jackson. Kaden wasn't just framed, he was framed by crooked cops, and the conspiracy goes higher than Ellery dares reach and deep into Jackson s troubled past.
Both men are soon enmeshed in the mystery of who killed the cop in the minimart, and engaged in a race against time to clear Kaden's name. But when the mystery is solved and the bullets stop flying, they'll have to deal with their personal complications and an attraction that's spiraled out of control.

Whew! Brave author!
Not many authors will touch the political downfall of a plot like this but I have to admit, my respect goes out to authors who write predominately romance but who can give you an actual story with a negative political view point and still reach those with positive views of the story.
My only complaint was wanting a bit more of the good guys stepping up and coming to the aide but I truly am happy I'm one of the fans that appreciate and love this beautiful tale of diamonds in the rough.
This story packs an emotional punch in regards to growing up in an area that is filled with those who are deemed less worthy, how easily that area can become corrupted, the love and strength of family, and what you would do to protect and help your family.
This is a story that will either have you saying Nay or Yay! Not too much of the in between but there was enough emotional depth between characters, engaging character developmemt, action, laughs, and corrupt intrigue to this mm romance that has it at the top of my list of favorites.
Fantastic writing, brave choice of topic, and Greg Tremblay was the epitome of perfection for this tale. My God, the man could have me in tears one second and laughing the next. He has truly become one of my top 5 narrators!
Great mystery and great Greg (as per usual)!

Just a short review, since I finished it a while back. :)
I very much enjoyed this audio book narrated by Greg Tramblay.
I liked the mystery, and the fleshed out characters, both main, and secondary characters. I loved how Jackson and Ellery were kind of enemies to lovers, or at least frenemies.
I'm looking forward to the next book! It is a continuation of the series, but I still felt like this book ended. It wasn't a big cliffy, but the story of Jackson and Ellery, and a lead from the case they were working on in this will continue in the next one.
Recommended if you like mystery, and narration by Greg Tremblay.
