Detective Gabriel Ashby has never looked twice at another man, yet the criminal across from him, the man he's interrogating, isn't like any other. Gabe can't deal with the sudden, intense need he has for one of NYPD's Most Wanted. Everyone close to Angelo Pagan ends up dead, with the smug gang leader standing amid the rubble. Gabe would love nothing more than to bust Angelo's ass and lock him up. So why is he seeing the bastard in his dreams at night? Angelo Pagan knows attraction to Gabe is suicide. He's resolute to ignore the chemistry…until a police raid goes wrong. He critically injures Gabe, changing the trajectory of both their lives. Now the two can't get close enough. They settle into a forbidden affair threatened by lies and betrayal, living on different sides of the law with no way of breaching the gap between them. With the authorities looking to make an example of Angelo, Gabe has to decide if it's really worth it to hate the sin but love the sinner.

! Love to listen to jazz, r/b and listen to erotic or a good paranormal sci-fi and " good narration is everything"
I loved every second of this book all the action, drama and the characters are so real to life. The narration is the "BEST" I say get the whole series! VERY VERY GOOD JOB Avril Ashton
No - really could not get behind Gabe being such a wishy washy, double standards, over reacting a**.
I would recommend the series, but not the first book.
Renard Pasquale's performance for this and all the rest of the series is outstanding!
Angel's first confrontation with his Uncle
Stick with it the books get better
This was a great start to the series...after listening to chapter 1, I went ahead and got the other 4 with no hesitation. The love affair was amazing...The story outside of the main couple was addictive. Fantastic secondary characters, Pablo, Syren, Mateo, Kane...All round Badass novel
I love that Angel...rough and tough gangster never thought twice about being the man Gabe deserved. He gave everything he had for them. You would expect that Gabe would be the one falling to his knees but Angel turned out to be the sensitive bastard that made me bawl
He spiced up the book with that Spanish accent ...Damn. The voice for angel...was fantastic.
What he does with the word "cop" should be illegal.
An unbreakable love.
I liked his Angel voice, it made sense .. not so in love with Gabe's voices.
Pablo ... Pablo .... Pablo .... Pablo .... Pablo, Only a couple of scene's but there is one that broke my heart, and made me fall in love with Pablo .. he got his own story too.
I am not in love with this book. I have the whole series and i have re-listened to the other books a couple times but not this one. Its good but not awesome.
This is one of the best smexy books I've got into in a long time, and I couldn't be happier that it's a series! Renard was amazing as the narrator, easily transitioning between accents. I do wish Gabe was a bit more masculine at times, but overall, the book and narrator were a wonderful match. This book marries romance and dominance very well. My highest recommendation if that sort of thing tickles your fancy.
You know a story is worth it when you cheer for the bad guy. Yes one is truly a bad guy who does bad things. I liked these guys, thought they were fun & sexy and had chemistry. The narrator was wonderful, great job Renard. The story starts off well it is basically a story of meeting someone who you just can't hide the real you from.
One of our characters knows he's gay but doesn't really do anything about it and the other hasn't ever had to think about it until he meets and is attracted to a MAN. Luckily they are smart enough to just be amazed by it happening instead of trying to figure out why.
Oh they have other issues. The story is not too predictable and one you will enjoy. The sex scenes will definitely have you making sure your earplugs are in completely. Oops caught me blushing.
Not sure, but certainly wasn't for me
Nothing else in this series
The narrator was ok, it was the storyline I did not like.
The idea that a cop and gangster might have a relationship could have been a good plot line, unfortunately it didn't pan out in my opinion. The interaction and dialogue between the two main characters was unrealistic and hard to listen to.
I usually like gay fiction written by woman, it's an odd combination that can really work at times. I felt like this book was written from a woman's perspective and the cops gender was changed to make the book fit into this genre.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I listened to books 1-3 before I posted my review. This book was not my normal type of book but I was intrigued by the reviews on Amazon. I was immediately drawn into Gabe and Angelo's story and I enjoyed the journey from beginning to end. This book is definitely my favorite in the series. I didn't fall in love with book 2 or 3 but the chemistry in this story was captivating and I was rooting for the couple to find love. The thing that really made this story stand out for me was the emotion Gabe and Angelo gave to each other. They were willing to be venerable to each other and it was very refreshing.
I have this book on my Kindle. Loved it reading it. Listening it was even better! Renard Pasquale made the story for me! He did an amazing job with the voices and emotions of the characters. I've already downloaded the next two books in the series. This one is a keeper in my library.
The entire book is memorable.
It's a toss up between Gabe and Angel.
Love has no bounderies.
