My thoughts: I give it ❣❣❣I think I’ll go middle of the road on this one, since it’s Mary Calmes and there’s big bad alpha law enforcement agents who like to get rough with each other.
It also has a lot of the other Mary Calmesisms, such as the highly likeable MC, and the wildly successful women who love him. The straight law enforcement officer who actually has it really bad for the MC, and the super possessive, growl “He’s mine” behavior between our love interests. There’s also the usual bit where everyone wants to sleep with him, but he’s saving himself because he’s hopelessly in love with the straight guy. Well, maybe he’s straight. Nope. He’s definitely only gay for Miro!
Deputy US Marshal Miro Jones has a reputation for being calm and collected under fire. These traits serve him well with his hotshot partner, Ian Doyle, the kind of guy who can start a fight in an empty room. In the past three years of their life-and-death job, they’ve gone from strangers to professional coworkers to devoted teammates and best friends. Miro’s cultivated blind faith in the man who has his back… faith and something more.
As a marshal and a soldier, Ian’s expected to lead. But the power and control that brings Ian success and fulfillment in the field isn’t working anywhere else. Ian’s always resisted all kinds of tied down, but having no home—and no one to come home to—is slowly eating him up inside. Over time, Ian has grudgingly accepted that going anywhere without his partner simply doesn’t work. Now Miro just has to convince him that getting tangled up in heartstrings isn’t being tied down at all.
