Books One and Two
Jory Keyes leads a normal life as an architect’s assistant until he is witness to a brutal murder. Though initially saved by police Detective Sam Kage, Jory refuses protective custody—he has a life he loves that he won’t give up no matter who is after him. But Jory’s life is in real jeopardy, especially after he agrees to testify about what he saw.
While dealing with attempts on his life, well-meaning friends who want to see him happy, an overly protective boss, and a slowly unfolding mystery that is much more sinister than he could ever imagine, the young gay man finds himself getting involved with Sam, the conflicted and closeted detective. And though Jory may survive the danger, he may not survive a broken heart.
A good read.
Quite a long story and full of lots of detail which I quite enjoyed. What starts off as a simple act to help a friend by recovering her small dog after she leaves her husband, turns into something dangerous when Jory is a witness to a murder. When rushing to escape, he comes in contact with Detective Sam Kage who is working the case, and who then interviews him with regard to why he was there at the house.
I really liked Jory with his honesty and his snarky sassyness, and the relationship he has with Dane, his boss, is quite amusing - it makes perfect sense as to why Dane hired him. And then there is the relationship between Jory and Sam which could be described as rocky but with maybe some interest....?
I liked reading this book and felt quite emotionally invested in Jory and Sam and how it would all work out.
