Publisher's summary

After surviving two brutal attacks that nearly killed him, Bradley Danforth was determined to put them behind him and move on with his life. He moved into a new house on the other side of town and made a new resolve to live his life to the fullest. Only, Bradley can’t seem to get the one person out of his mind who let him down the most: Max Donohue. When he starts receiving threatening messages, Max is the first person Bradley turns to for help.

Max is a homicide detective who quickly learned that the job is about more than catching the bad guy and being a hero. When he’s assigned a cold case, he’d rather leave it alone. Max knows he must face a past he buried a long time ago, so he can close it, once and for all. Max is soon immersed in more than just a murder as he discovers evidence of corruption and a massive cover-up. The combination of working the cold case and battling his demons is enough to send Max into a downward spiral, but when Bradley comes to him for help, Max finds the strength to do whatever he can to keep him safe.

Will Max step up to the challenge he failed to overcome before, or will someone succeed in ending Bradley’s life, once and for all?

With a Friend’s Strength is the second installment of the Badge and Bullets series featuring the same two characters. It is a suspenseful murder mystery that depicts detailed crimes, strong language, and adult situations. While this series will include a romance, it’s a slow-burn that develops throughout the series.

A thrilling sequel!

After listening to book 1, I quickly dived into this one and wasn't dissapointed in the least.
I recommend listening to book 1 first as this is a continuing series.
We get to see Max and Bradley's relationship grow and evolve.
Their slowburn romance continue in the background and the focus is on the mystery and suspense.

Kenneth Obi's audio delivery and narration was exceptional and engaging.

Never saw that coming!

With a Friend's Strength Is book Two of the Badge and Bullets series. You should read them in order starting with At a Strange's Mercy since this takes up after the events there.
I love these two men and I love the slow burn as they are working on friendship and Bradley is trying to build trust in Max. This sort of has two stories rolled in one as Max is working on a cold case that reminds him of his past and we get a lot of Max in this one.
The story is well written, suspenseful and the characters so realistic. It is a slow burn so don't expect any sex. I cannot wait for the next book.
If at all possible get the audios because Kenneth Obi adds great voice and excitement to enhance your experience.

Love this series

I am really loving this series. Can't wait to see where it goes next. Slow burn romance and no heat level. Kenneth Obi does a great job with narration.

WOW

This is book 2 of this series by Brittany. I started this immediately after finishing book 1 because I just couldn't wait for more.

Max and Bradley's relationship slowly grows and evolves as we move into this new chapter of their story. The romance - slow burn that it is - is a nice background to mystery that is the main focus of this series.

Kenneth as always was brillaint.

With a Friend’s Strength

I enjoyed this book, just not quite as much as book 1. Something I’m not a fan of in dual point of view books is when we get a situation from both viewpoints. For example, there’s an interaction from one view point and it goes to the next scene. Then we get the other person’s view point of the previous interaction. It seems filler to keep doing this throughout a book and it makes me lose interest.

As I’ve said often for the narrator, he improves with each release.
