When it comes to humour and incredulous plots, Mr. Cox is always a winner. His stories are always a thrilling time with fun characters and mind boggling plots. In this latest series, how can a reader not love the title and pick it up? Yes, I read this book because of the title with absolutely no clue what the story was about. Based on Mr. Cox's usual genre, I figured it would be m/m and erotically hot. Beyond these two givens, it is anyone's guess what would take place. I smiled through this entire story and laughed so hard I may have snorted a few times.

Let's start with the characters. Tomkin Coburn is a single father who does whatever he can to bring in money to raise his son. When I say anything, I mean to the point he sells his body for a little lookie-lookie but no touchie-touchie. As a featured dancer in a gay strip club, one would think he would be raking in the money. Not so. He also moonlights as an erotic writer. But wait, there's more! His day job is a cop. My guess is he gets paid the very least as a public servant and it is the most dangerous. Where does Coburn find the time? I'm just baffled. Still, he's a character who is easily visualized as a high octane on the go guy who is never still. Just thinking about him exhausts me. His carefully stacked house of cards comes tumbling down when he wakes up late for his day job and finds a dead body next to him.

Luke Early is the detective assigned to solve the murder case. He is a nice guy and seriously crossing lines as he becomes more and more attracted to Coburn. Honestly, the plot of this story is decent. The solving of the case is a bit loose. Let's not confuse this with a mystery story. As with most of the tales written by Mr. Cox, there is a bit of tongue in cheek poking fun of genres. When the murderer is caught, it is not a surprise. Whilst not anti-climactic, it is a bit disturbing. Fortunately the closing of the case ends with a happily ever after. This erotic suspense is recommended to m/m readers who enjoy crazy situations with hot sexy men.
