Neal's a young, handsome rookie cop dealing with all the pressures that being the new guy in a high stress job entails. Dani's a cop who's been on the job awhile. Dani's got a soft heart with a more than a little rebel hidden under her Valkyrie-sized uniform. She's been watching Neal's tension level rise. She thinks she may have a way to help Neal out—and her husband, Finn, is on board with the idea. A simple dinner to check out the dynamics of the potential hookup leads to good time by all.

Neal and his training officer are caught in a driveby shooting. The senior man is serious injured but Neal seems to be unscathed. That however turns out to be less than true when Dani tries to help Neal change out of his blood stained clothes at the hospital. A bullet is embedded in Neal's vest and has caused a kidney injury due to the impact. Dani and Finn spend the next week giving TLC to Neal. As the story draws to a close Neal is offered a more more permanent place in Dani and Finn's lives.

CLOSE TO HOME is a fantastic erotic short with the perfect blend of plot, character development, and amazing chemistry between the main characters. It came together perfectly and left me impressed by the author, A.R. Moler.

This story is a bisexual menage featuring a married couple Dani and Finn. Dani is a cop who has a soft spot for rookie cop, Neal. She invites him to dinner one night and she, Neal and Finn hook up. They seem to have a great chemistry, so they decide to keep getting together. But when Neal gets hurt on the job, Dani and Finn realize how important he is to them, and strive to make their relationship a permanent trio.

I loved this story. The author did a fantastic job of getting insight into each of the main characters, so that we get the sense of how their relationship developed while making it believable.

Also, I loved the sensuality of the story. It wasn't nothing but sex, but there was kissing, and touching, and flirting that gave it a bit of sweetness as well. There was one scene with Neal and Finn in the bathtub, that was amazingly tender. This is a bisexual menage as mentioned earlier, so there is m/m interaction as well as m/m/f.

The plot was developed nicely for such a short story. The crux of it came with a danger from the job, and it made perfect sense how the rest of story played out. I thought that the author did an amazing job of rounding out the story.

This is my first experience with A.R. Moler's work, but I have to tell you, I was so impressed with this, I will definitely be seeking out more of her books in the future.
