No one should have to choose between love and justice.
Haitian-born professor and activist Patrice Denis is not here for anything that will veer him off the path he’s worked so hard for. One particularly dangerous distraction: Easton Archer, the assistant district attorney who last summer gave Patrice some of the most intense nights of his life, and still makes him all but forget they’re from two completely different worlds.
All-around golden boy Easton forged his own path to success, choosing public service over the comforts of his family’s wealth. With local law enforcement unfairly targeting young men of color, and his career—and conscience—on the line, now is hardly the time to be thirsting after Patrice again. Even if their nights together have turned into so much more.
For the first time, Patrice is tempted to open up and embrace the happiness he’s always denied himself. But as tensions between the community and the sheriff’s office grow by the day, Easton’s personal and professional lives collide. And when the issue at hand hits closer to home than either could imagine, they’ll have to work to forge a path forward…together.

Adriana Herrera does it again with the third book in this series. I’m enjoying it immensely and desperately want the books to be available in print so I can put them on my shelf and stroke them admiringly from time to time.
I was a little nervous going in to this third installment. I knew there was heavy subject matter and I was concerned the angst level would be significantly increased from the first two (and the dark moment of the first book almost broke me as it was.)
However, she did a wonderful job balancing the tone. The sweetness between the MCs that so characterizes the first two books was not entirely lost, but she still treated the topics of institutionalized racism, race relations, and honoring one’s principle with the seriousness with which they deserve.
And the epilogue is e v e r y t h i n g.
As usual, Sean Crisden gives an amazing performance as narrator and I want to be friends with him just so I can regularly hear his voice. Haha!
