“I’ve enjoyed this author in the past, so I’ll definitely read anything I’ve missed, but I don’t think this was one of his best.” ~Under the Covers

This book started out great for me.  We have a cop, Justin, who knows he’s gay, just never came out to everyone and hasn’t really had any experiences.  He’s extremely shy around guys he likes as well, and seems to freeze and not be able to speak to them.  Hmmm this could be a problem.  Of course he has the hots for a sexy EMT, Rock.

Rock is the larger than life type, big muscular, seems very alpha.  Of course there’s no way he could be interested, right?  Well, turns out he’s openly gay and Justin didn’t know that.  At the slightest show of interest from Rock, Justin can’t communicate.

I really liked Rock.  He tiptoed around Justin enough to make him comfortable and dealt with all the problems Justin threw at him in a perfect way.  He seemed to truly care for Justin.  Justin on  the other hand, I might’ve wanted to slap on the side of the head a bit.  Yes, he has a problem.  Which by the way, when it’s resolved the why I was left a bit scratching my head and not believing it.  But that’s a different subject.  Justin never took life by the horns and tried to take charge.  He continually lets things happen to him, instead of him being the one to be proactive.

I normally would’ve liked this combination a lot, from everything … jobs to personalities and physical types.  But this particular book fell a bit flat.  It would be build up and I was getting excited about something to come, and then it was a bit anti-climactic.

I’ve enjoyed this author in the past, so I’ll definitely read anything I’ve missed, but I don’t think this was one of his best.  It was an ok, enjoyable read but it stopped at that.  And I was looking for more.
