We’re back in the Jeff Woods Mystery world. Jeff is a former cop and his lover Alex with his disabled brother Sean. The first book in this series is fantastic. This second book is about Jeff after he quits being a police officer. That kind of bummed me out, I liked Jeff as a cop and didn’t really believe him transferring to a radio personality. Anyway, The Church of Virtue is sharing their warped view of Jeff’s homosexuality and Alex is being beaten up by a loan shark.
Jeff and Alex are still trying to figure out life together and with Sean as well as trauma from the previous book where a killer near drowned all three. Parker, Jeff’s former partner and his lover David are also a continuing cast in this story. Which is good because I like them too. The action is good but there isn’t as much balance like the first book. I like the domestic angle, it’s sweet, but too much of it makes some sections slow moving. It didn’t make sense why Alex would go to the loan shark by himself. That part felt very forced and unbelievable. Don’t get me wrong, I still really enjoyed this book. I also look forward to the next story in this series.
