A believable GFY is as rare as a black swan. This is not only that, but also well written and entertaining.

Rafe is a gay private investigator. It's a tough job, that he enjoys and is good at it. He doesn't hide the fact that he is gay, but doesn't advertise it either. Sadly his parents are less supportive of him, so they don't have a good relationship.

Jeremy is a cop - on a motorbike. Sexy. Another thing I liked, that he is not high on the police food chain, only a regular cop. He is

I LOVED these guys. I put these boys up with Ty and Zane (and God knows I'm OBSESSED with Ty Grady... Jane Austen can keep Mr. Darcy). I may be wrong in my analysis but I don't consider this a case of GFY, more a case of "late blooming". I have never wanted more of a glimpse into characters lives after the fact as I have wit this book. Not that this book was lacking, I just want MORE! S.E. Culpepper (effing GENIUS) is an author I will be sickly loyal to. If you don't read another M/M book this y ...more

I started reading male/male romances only recently, having been nervous that I would not be able to identify with the characters because I am a heterosexual female. But I found myself loving this book!


It is well written, and there were points where I was highlighting brilliant, funny quotes. The love story seemed very realistic and the guys were just so lovely together. This book was certainly relationship focused, but there was a decent mystery in it as well.

I just got the book a few days ago a

I found this book with Goodreads recommendations. I almost didn't read it. An author I've never read before. A longer book than I really felt like reading. While the description of the book looked okay, it didn't really pull me in. I am SO glad I bought this book! I was sucked in from the very beginning and I got so frustrated throughout the day when the little red light on my Kindle showed my battery was getting low. I didn't want to put it down even to charge it.

Jeremy is a policeman who calls

I just re-read this to get ready for Question Mark, and I'm delighted to say I still enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time around.

Jeremy continues to be one of my favorite m/m characters of all time. I just love the way he's not afraid to examine and then explore his feelings, even when they're freaking him out. I love that he's so willing to open up to and trust Rafe, and then that he doesn't let Rafe get away with trying to run when he gets freaked out.

I appreciate the balance betwee

Oooh, wow. What to say, what to say that every other reviewer hasn't already? Well, not much so I'll keep it short.

I loved this story. The chemistry between Rafe and Jeremy was scorching and definitely made the story hot, sexy and interesting. Both characters have great personalities and I adored both of them. Rafe is so funny and cute with his unrequited lust for Jeremy and Jeremy is adorable with his confusion over why

What a wonderful book. I read it in one sitting. The only interruption I allowed was a couple hours to run to the Mall to pick up a Valentines Day gift for my guy.

The characters, the story (a crime mystery), the romance, I loved it all! I laughed and cried reading this. Rafe and Jeremy caught me and pulled me into their world. I would love to dive into their world again. Of course the image I created of Rafe and Jeremy in my mind didn't hurt either. Rafe, dark haired and always looking dashing a

Loved it. This has some of the best erotic tension I've ever read, and it was incredibly refreshing to read such a thoughtful, nuanced exploration of Jeremy coming to terms with his sexuality. I can't wait to read more from this author.

This was a well written GFY story. I enjoyed all of it and I am left wishing there was more to read by S.E. Culpepper.
