I really liked the overall story line but was confused with the characters. I would have enjoyed seeing them developed a little more. I would have liked to maybe know a little more about Farris and Daniel.

The intense physical need between Ferris and Daniel was nice to see. Here you have two very tough cops, both having lost their partners/lovers; yet trying to get past that so that they can love once again.

Reviewed by Kerri: The first thing I liked about this story was the easy way in which the writing flowed. I'm not a fan of first person POV, but Michael Mandrake did a wonderful job and I was really drawn into the story, quickly getting a terrific feel for the two main characters.

I Loved second changes in love, and I liked this story line.
However, even when I liked it and I think Farris was a lovely character,Daniel was the most Arrogant, annoying, selfish prick I ever read.
I hope there is a sequel in which Farris kick the loser out of his life for good and find someone else who deserve him.
Not sure what's up with the MC referring to men's body parts as being 'like a female's' which is 'just the way he likes it' twice in one scene, but it turned me right off. That and the dodgy writing and unappealing characters.

Michael Mandrake pens complex characters already comfortable with their sexuality. Thorough these, he builds worlds not centered on erotica but rather the mainstream plots we might encounter in everyday life through personal experiences or the media. To find out more please visit
