And despite his better judgment, Conner aches to relieve the man of his guilt.
Seth's a seer, but ever since his old partner died his powers have been on the fritz. Enter Conner Sharp, Seth's sexy and mysterious new partner. While the dark-haired stranger ignites Seth's desire, he also awakens the seer's power with every touch. Seth sees their future together - a future rich with lust and danger - but is it a future the enigmatic Conner wants?
As the two men solve a series of murders, their sizzling attraction overflows into the bedroom. Is the overwhelming passion just a fling or is it forever?

This story was hard to get through.
1. The narrator spoke extremely slow. Even with speeding up to x1.25, Conner's voice was horribly slow and it was like listening to nails scratch on a chalk board every time his POV came up.
2. Seth and Conner seemed more like 16 year old's that's never had sex before but desperate to have sex. There was too much time spent on then ogling each other and the sex scenes were drawn out entirely too long and happened too often which took away something special from the main MC's.
3. The MC's are suppose to be Detectives and when they manage to stop drooling over each other like teenagers, they actually act like grown men who are detectives but it doesn't last long which is a shame because the plot of the story is forged in a compelling mystery and suspense.
Josh Lanyon is a great author who knows how to balance his mm romance with a great mystery or thriller. I mention that because had the author did that with this story, it would easily be worth 5 stars.
Like I said if you get through the bad narration (and I'm not positive it's the narrators fault, I think it may be technical), the over abundance of sex, and detectives acting like horney teenagers, you get a truly compelling mystery with some great supporting characters.
I loved the story! I love all of Zoe Perdita's books.
The narration was okay, it was well acted at some points but a bit stale and could be improved upon in others. It was nice that each character was given a distinct sounding voice, though.
"Performance and Ending"
It was enjoyable although th narration could have been better for Conor Sharp as he is a main actor. Some parts of the narration did not quite match the story line but it was a pretty enjoyable read. The other character narrations were amazingly good.
The finishing of the book in my opinion seemed a little rushed it would have been great if it had been concluded in a different way. A bit more explanation to the issues between the main characters. A great story line though.
Looking forward to the next book in the series perhaps with a different narrator or better impersonation of Conor Sharp.
