(Can be read as a stand alone novel)
Brian is unashamedly Bi. He doesn't see the point in hiding who he chooses to sleep with so long as they don't expect a relationship. Brian doesn't do relationships, long-term commitment or whatever you want to name it; the people he dated chosen for their usefulness – a judge's son, a lawyer's daughter – to help solve cases or make evidence disappear. Family comes first and keeping his father and his cronies out of jail is a fulltime job by itself.
But when his best mate Jamie returns to New Zealand he brings chaos to Brian's world – Kennosuke Kitayama. Kennosuke tugged at Brian in ways he desperately wanted to deny; and it only got worse when he allowed himself to indulge in a summer fling. What harm could it bring? Wasn't like Kennosuke would be here for long. Brian could have his fun, Kennosuke would leave and life would continue as normal.
However, fate had other plans and so does his father.
Determined to take his groups operation internationally, Brian's father seeks to make a deal with Jamie's husband – the head of Yakuza organisation in Kyoto and Kennosuke's uncle – that will see Kennosuke thrust back into Brian's life and bringing all the feelings he'd wanted to deny to the surface. Both his and Kennosuke's. But when the deal goes south Brian must make a choice: maintain his cover as a Police Officer or throw his career aside to rescue Kennosuke?
