Publisher's Summary

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.

Wonderful story...

What a wonderfully, fantastic story. Though I have not read any of the others in this series, I adore Henry and Locke. The build-up to their relationship was tantalizing, taunting, and titillating...the basic three "t's". For me, Skylar M. Cates, presented the two characters in such a way that I could relate to both of them and I felt for both of them. I remember being Henry, so sure that my body image was the reason I couldn't find love; as well as understanding Locke's sense of not being good enough. I am a good guy, that like's to be a bit bad! The two are perfect together and I think that Cates did an outstanding job telling their story. I also enjoyed the mix of intrigue and added to the story. The secondary characters also added to the mix and I found myself drawn toward James and Ron...feeling for them. Which is a good sign of a wonderful author. Now for the narration by Matt Baca...LOVE HIM!! His vocal inflections provided a visionary connection between the characters and the reader. I will look forward to listening to him in the future! Which is going to be soon because I am going to start listening to the rest of this series...Definitely would recommend...excellent author and fantastic narrator!

Pushed my rage buttons

Any additional comments?

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*
