Such a great story from start to finish! Kurt was an amazing guy, and Davey was so sweet. I hated that it took me so long to get their sh*t together cause i myself like to get things done but I was so happy how everything works out between them. I adore HEA ( )

I loved this book!

I have not read anything by K.C. Burn yet, but the ratings seemed to be very high for this one.

This is probably my favorite of the "gay cop" books I have read. Other books have been rather tropey and focused on the "gay for you". But this book also focuses on Davy, who is recovering from the death of his husband (Ben). Davy is such a sweet, honest character that I really fell in love with.

I loved how the friendship and then the relationship develops and it brought to light a topic that I had not considered before. I wonder how often there are gay/lesbian partners who are mentally abused because they have to hide their relationship? The way that Ben kept him "in the closet" obviously scarred Davy mentally.

This was a very good book, a must read. ( )

I liked the fact that Kurt didn't just jump into his change with both feet, we really felt him struggle with whether he was gay or not. It was nice to have the author foreshadow it by saying sex (with women) had never been that awesome for him, just something to do, and I really enjoyed having Kurt's first time be as a bottom, instead of top, as you'd expect from a 31 year old manly man who had never questioned his sexuality before.
