Nothing Special #1
Detective Cashel 'Cash' Godfrey is big, tattooed and angry so people typically keep their distance. He's fresh out of the police academy, however, no one is looking to partner with the six foot four beast with a huge chip on his shoulder and an inability to trust. When Cash scans the orientation room he wasn't expecting to find sexy hazel eyes locked onto him. Eyes of the handsome Detective Leonidis 'Leo' Day.
Leo is charming, witty, hilariously sarcastic and the only one that can make Cash smile. He’s proud, out and one bad-ass detective.
Together Cash and Leo become the most revered and successful narcotics detectives Atlanta’s ever seen. Able to communicate and understand each other, without even having to voice it, they quickly climb up the promotional ranks.
When Cash saves Leo's life in a raid that turns deadly, Leo begins to see something in the big man that no one else does…something special. But Leo fears he'll never break through the impenetrable wall that protects Cash's heart.
Nothing Special takes the reader through various emotions throughout the richly fulfilling plot that’s full of erotic gay romance, heartache, passion, trials and tribulations, police action scenes, and an intriguing twist that comes to an amazing ending that’s impossible to see coming.
God and Leo are, simply put, irritatingly sexy. They are perfect partners, both on and off the clock. Leo is annoyingly optimistic and God is incredibly powerful and together they understand each other on an emotional, almost psychic, level even before they open their hearts to the other. Throw in a little crime, some co-worker flirting and fighting and you have a great summer read that will heat and cool your soul all year long.

Don't Judge #4
AN ENEMIES TO LOVERS STORY
Detective Austin Michaels didn’t think life could get any better after he was accepted into the most notorious narcotics task force on the East Coast, headed up by two of the baddest’ Lieutenants with the Atlanta Police Department - Cashel Godfrey and Leonidis Day.
Michaels knew he would fit right in as the team’s sniper, having received his fair share of commendations for marksmanship. He was just as badass as the rest of the twenty brothers that made up their team. But when Michaels lets their prime suspect get away from a huge bust with over a quarter of a million dollars in drugs, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it right.
Left with no other options, God chooses to bring in outside help, calling on his long-time friend and bounty hunter, Judge Josephson.
Judge was considered one of the best trackers during his enlistment in the United States Marine Corps. After retiring, he used those skills to become one of the most sought out fugitive trackers in the country. When Judge gets a call from his old friend needing his help, he quickly tells God, yes.
Still embarrassed, and intent to prove himself, Michaels immediately volunteers to partner up with Judge to get their suspect back quickly and quietly. Neither man wanted or needed a partner. But, after Judge and Michaels get on the road, the hate/lust relationship they quickly develop between them will either make them heroes… Or get them killed.
Austin Michaels has grown into a very productive and strong member of the Atlanta Narcotics Task Force, not quite the image Ruxs and Green had of him in Here Comes Trouble. Unfortunately a mistake has consequences and after God calls in a favor, Michaels finds himself on a journey with Judge, God's bounty hunter friend who is none to pleased to have a tag-a-long while tracking his quarry. Their differences compliment each other even though they don't see it. Once again, when one of their own is in trouble the task force family rally together and do what they do best: kick butt and bust the bad guys.
Great stories with very interesting characters, both good guys and bad. Sometimes the plots seem a little on the rushed side but still flowed smoothly so it didn't effect my enjoyment of the tale. The mysteries/crime/conflict could have had a little more punch for my taste and for that reason I have to file this series under guilty pleasures, although I never once actually felt guilty for enjoying the pleasures of the Atlanta Narcotics Task Force men and off the record they are definitely men from head to toe.
