3.5 stars. Cody, a Las Vegas CSI, and Gil, a private security owner, has been in happy relationship for three years. Then, right after his 28th birthday, Cody gets kidnapped, leaving Gil trying to find clues to rescue his lover. The story folds very nicely and I adore the two protagonists. Since it's only about 40+ pages, the story feels like it is wrapped up too quickly. But hey, it's an enjoyable read, nevertheless. Plus, a story about a CSI adds more point. What can I say, I love that show :D
I have a 2008 Papaerback edition by MLR Press which also includes stories by Sarah Black & Josh Lanyon, as well as this (single) story.
ATM cannot find this anthology.

Its short but its also sweet and sexy.

Gil and Cody have been going out for 3 years and they are totally in love. Gil is ex-special forces who has started up the most prestigious security firm in Vegas. Cody is a CSI agent who knows how to handle himself.

I love how we get to see Cody and Gill in established relationship. The whole story is based about Cody getting kidnapped and Gil trying to work out why and by whom.

The mystery of the story was pretty predictable but that doesnt hinder

So so m/m romance about a crime scene investigator and a guy who owns a security company. I did wonder whether this was part of a series… but not enough to go figure it out.

Was expecting more and got less. Knew who did the kidnapping and murder and I was reading this thinking, Meh...could have gone without reading this.
