Henry Clueley doesn't want to be in Glamour, not after moving far away to overcome a difficult, if privileged, childhood. He's no longer that pudgy kid desperate to escape his hometown, but it still holds painful memories. When his recently widowed mother needs him, however, "dependable Henry" does the right thing - even if it means leaving the IRS to take a boring corporate position. Things don't stay boring for long. Soon Henry helps the local sheriff's department unravel a crime. Posing as half of a fake couple seems like a fun idea... until Henry learns he already knows the deputy playing his other half.
Deputy Locke may be new to the Glamour Sheriff's Department, but he's fought his way up in the world and is determined to make a good impression. He keeps his private life quiet, even from his beloved younger brother. Locke knows better than most the need to protect what's his.
Henry resents the arrogant, gorgeous cop, and Locke thinks Henry is sheltered and spoiled. Their secret and steamy encounter only adds to the animosity. As they join forces, Henry thinks a relationship with Locke would be catastrophic, but the white-hot passion between them makes it hard to resist.

Pushed my rage buttons
If I'm objective, and take out my own issues with this story, the rating is 3.5 stars.
Subjectively, this will be going onto my "Hated It" shelf. This is a story that pushed so many of my rage buttons it's really not even fair for me to rate it. So take my rating with a grain of salt.
Because I am firmly, FIRMLY, in the minority with this. And, hey, it could have just caught me on a bad day, because I cannot tell you the number of people I know who RAVE about this story and think it's the best in the series so far. I am just NOT one them.
Obviously. Even Matt Baca's narration, which I usually enjoy, grated on me this time around because of how much I was disliking the story. *sighs*
