Wearing Death was my second interracial M/M romance and for the most part was a quick and enjoyable read. Once again I am thrilled to discover a writer who does not commit RaceFail in describing the minority character. Jeremy Reed is black and he's a veterinarian. Cool. Even better, his penis is not the stereotyped "giant black mandingo schlong" so beloved of way too many erotica writers. In short, Jeremy is a relatable human being, not a caricature. When authors get that right, I reward them by ...more

Jeremy hears a bump in the night and finds the local police detective on his door step naked with a tattoo of a dead woman on his back. Brendan then moves in with vet Jared along with his dog while he recovers and the police try to find the guy who kidnapped him and tattooed him and killed the girl in his tattoo. I enjoyed the story about two guys flirting and getting together with the sub story of who the bad guy was as Brendan refuses to stay out of the investigation even if he's officially of ...more

This book has one of the more fascinating and instantly riveting ideas that I’ve seen in mysteries lately. Unfortunately, the book goes nowhere with the idea. The story isn’t really a mystery but instead the flirting dance between two men as they act on the chemistry between them. That’s not bad per se, although I struggled to keep my attention and interest in the story, but given the potential in the tattoo idea – I couldn’t help being deeply disappointed that the concept was ignored in favor o ...more

One of my favorite novels, from an author I always delight in. The story drags the reader in by the scruff at the first few sentences, and just builds from there. Brendan and Jeremy already know each other through the care of Brendan's dog Raider [Jeremy is a vet], although it's a congenial, passing 'he's cute' sort of acquaintance, which puts the novel off to a good start. No 'past history and broken hearts,' nor sudden 'meet and greet and jump in bed' scenes here.

Brendan's shyness in certain c

I loved how different this book was. You have the captivating idea of the tattoo on the back and the fact that the authors didn’t stick to stereo-types on the characters at all. Brendan might be the cop but he was not the dominate in the relationship at all but he is still all man. Jeremy is an African American veterinarian with a take charge attitude. There were no twinks in this story. The pace was really well written in how it kept up with the mystery b

I don't really expect this as a mystery/crime solving story. So, in that point, I think the "answer" to the mystery comes too rushed without any explanation on the motive. HOWEVER, since I take this book more as a romance, I love how Brendan and Jeremy get together. Love how patient Jeremy is. Love how Brendan, though a cop, can be the more less confident in the relationshop. A cop and a vet, and thrown in a loyal dog to the picture, and I am loving it :).

This was a cute story. It revolved around an interracial couple and I like that race wasn't an issue and Jeremy wasn't a stereotype. The tattoo was a nice twist and I like that they were able to deal with it at the end. I just wished the end had been more suspenseful. I would read it again and recommend to friends.

interesting story line with the tattoo but I felt sort of let down when the bad guy was found. The slow build up of the relationship was what tipped me from 3 to 4 stars.
