Detective Remington frickin’ hates the missing persons detail, but a cold fury builds in the pit of his stomach when he realizes that over the past three months six boys have disappeared from the smaller communities that surround the greater Phoenix area. All reported to be runaways looking to escape their shitty lives, but Remy’s starting to put together a different pictu ...more

Very good, but don't expect any fast paced action here its more of slow and thorough build up. Remy and Jamie are total opposites pulled in to work together investigating and solving multiple missing person cases. They are instantly attracted too each other despite their differences, Remy tries to stay detached by keeping Jamie at an emotional distance. We barely scratch the surface in knowing what makes Jamie and Remy tick, there's so much more going on here than first thought, very mysterious. ...more

3,5 stars.

I enjoyed this audio-book, but maybe not much enough to keep on listening to it without long pauses in between. I don't blame the narrator - Dax Fischer did a good job, it was just too much of a ridiculous mystery for my spoiled taste.

Probably it is a reason why I lost the connection to the MCs somewhere in the middle of the story.

Still I'll recommend to read it to all fans of MM suspense romance with a main focus on the relationship between two very different but pretty hot

This book was just what I was looking for - M/M, more than a novella or short story, engaging characters, hot sex, crime, and something to make me emotionally invested and involved.

I know this is a co-write between Lisa Worrall and Laura Harner and, I must say, it was seamless. I have read Lisa Worrall before and I truly enjoy her writing style and I loved Continental Divide.

The two MC's are hot independently and smoking together. Their combined chemistry had my Kindle melting. This, for me, is

Enjoyed this, interesting story and hot chemistry between the two MC's 4 stars

I'm not going to go into a lot of detail....I see my favourite reviewer Mr TA Webb has done an excellent job as usual, but for me, this series has started off really well, and the second book is already loaded and being read. Jamie Mainwaring (pronounced Mannering, nope I don't understand it either and I'm English!!) is a Lord...and a detective in London. Colt Remington is a detective in Phoenix, Arizona. How these tw

That is by far the most intense undercover cop novel I've read, actually it's almost on par with Hostile Ground by L.A. Witt.

Continental Divide left more up to your imagination putting your bloody nerves and anxiety levels through the roof. It was very well written with incredible MC's and the storyline and writing just flowed in directions that kept me on the edge of my seat.

Recommends it for: those who like bitter sweet romance
Didn't know what to expect with this, but I have enjoyed everything that I have read by Ms. Harner so far. This is no exception. This time it's Phoenix cop Colt Remington and British Lord Jamie Manwaring brought together when they both happen upon a child sex trafficking ring. Their simultaneous discoveries of boys that have disappeared, brings them together when an organization similar to Interpol happens upon their findings.

It is oil and water for these two, but their coming together sparks

I'm furious and frustrated and I just don't even know what to say. This was a five star book up until the end when it just fizzled. There was tons of suspense and I kept waiting for something to happen but nothing did. But that wasn't even the worse part. (view spoiler) ...more

3.5 -4 stars. Great story; interesting plot and I loooved Jamie & Colt. Hated the ending. The ending crushed my little romantic soul! I know there are more books in this series, but I'm scared to read them after having my heart ripped out like that.

(Edit 12/12/15: In light of the recent news of Harner's plagiarism of other books, I'm dropping the rating for this down to 0 stars. 2.5 stars was way too generous to begin with.)

I thought as individuals, Jamie and Remy had some potential. Jamie's an earl but took a job as an inspector to do something useful with himself. Remy's a "cowboy" (he wears boots and he's from the American Southwest, so that makes him a cowboy right? *rolls eyes*) who clearly has an abusive past but it's never outright

I read 77% until Chapter 12 and was just too frustrated to continue. I overlooked the opening scene of the detective gut punching his superior in the station (yeah, right) and awkward phrasing like "turning every screw I've got" or "what in a hell." But, hoi polloi (the masses) became "the hoypoloy (sic) that went with his title" and a pivotal early scene began with an American detective accompanying a British Inspector to a home with the statement, "Shoot first, ask questions later."

Yet another young boy in Phoenix is missing, and Detective Remington is hot. Not just because of the weather, but six boys, barely in their teens, are gone without a trace. While he struggles to put the pieces together, he can't help but feel all these cases are somehow related. Young boys, troubled homes, sudden disappearances.

Meanwhile, in London, Inspector Jamie Mainwaring is coming to much the same conclusion. Six missing boys. All from unhappy home situations. All missing. No clues. So he g

Overall, I really enjoyed this book; however, there were some niggles with Jamie's background which really irritated me and struck me as sloppy. It was let down by some attention to detail. There may well be some errors with Remy's characterisation, but as I'm British, if there were any, they passed me by.

The first thing that struck me was Jamie's conversation with the chauffeur on the way to his mother's. In the course of just one conversation the chauffeur referred to her as 'Madam', 'Her Grac

'Continental Divide' is the first book in the 'Separate Ways' series by Laura Harner, although Lisa Worrall co-authored this first installment. It is also one of my all-time favorite books and when you meet Remy and Jaime, you'll understand why. I will admit that I had to re-read this story before writing my review as I had been pretty stunned after my first read of it and probably wasn't even capable of writing my own name. This is the story of two very different men, with the same work ethic a ...more

Damn !I am so sorry you were so close to a 5 Hearts rating, but what were the chances that a reviewer would have a partner that is a Missing Person Officer in England and that same reviewer would know way more Missing Person’s procedures than they should!!

Remy is a detective in Phoenix and is frustrated by the disappearance of 6 young boys. When he makes further inquiries into the disappearances, he is shunted
Although in the same professional field, Phoenix PD Detective Remy Remington and Scotland Yard Inspector Jamie Mainwaring are polar opposites in social origins and lifestyle habits. When unlikely circumstances force them to work on a case together, it's instant dislike for both of them. And yet, the sexual attraction between them is just as instant and even more powerful than the former. Over the course of their collaboration, they realize they have a lot more in common than their attractive phy ...more

Two cops from each side of the pond, strangers to each other, pool their resources to track down young boys gone missing in a possible international sex trafficking ring. But, the cops have to be sequestered in a fancy London hotel room with a single bed and bath for the both them? Hmmm. Paid for by one of them? Hmmm. Rich cop couldn’t have afforded a suite, at least? And how do they explain the hotel bill on their expense report?

Well, this would have been 5 stars if it hadn't been for the ending. I loved the story for the most part. There were some things that were a bit over the top and hard to swallow, but that didn't detract too much from the overall feel of the story. I'm definitely going to read the sequel, if only in hopes that the author fixes that ending.

Despite all of its flaws (typos, tropes, cliches..), I quite enjoyed this book. It's a classic hot cop meets hot cop with insta-lust, but the posh factor, the unexpected ending and the kinky aspect of the mistery plot are worth the read.

Somehow mediocre. I couldn't really warm up to the story and the MCs. It was not a great suspense/crime novel and the romance part was ok at best.

There a things I like and things I didn’t, but enough was good for me to continue into the next book.
The subject matter of the case was absolutely horrendous, and I thought it got wrapped up to quickly.-

It's gotten so a "3" seems like a bad review, so I won't go there. I liked this book; I cared about both of the MCs - Jamie Mainwaring and Colt Remington. I have my disappointments, but they didn't keep me from anticipating keenly the next in the series...

Meet Remy and Jamie, the two most unprofessional and incompetent cops you'll ever meet. They are working separately on a missing persons case on each side of the atlantic, when separate interpol searches ends up matching their two cases as one.

Leave it to Laura Harner and Lisa Worrell to write a book that makes me feel dirty and slimy and love it.

Two very different type of men, Remington (who I laughed at when I learned his full name) and Jamie are each tops in their field. Remy is a loose cannon, but he gets results. Jamie is more structured and a Lord, even though he’s a bit outside the family business. Drawn together when a missing person’s case is shown to have links that no one else saw, they are forced to work together to solve

More a 3.5 but not quite there.

Human Trafficking? Interpol? Diplomats? Cops? What the hell? And to top it all, he had to be attached at the hip to John-bloody-Wayne.

Two detectives come face-to-face when a tangled web of abductions leads to an undeniable pattern. One a lord, the other a cowboy; the two must somehow figure out how to work together despite the many barriers that lie between them.

I really wanted to like this, but from the very start it just didn't grab me. I was bored, and I did
I am so conflicted about this book. On the one hand, it's got all the elements that I like in stories: sexy cops, posh British people, an good plot (with a subject that I personally find very interesting), opposite-but-complimentary MCs, crazy sexual tension, a bit of suspense, a bit of drama... On the other hand, I totally overdosed on my suspension of disbelief medication. Almost everything that happened was ridiculously unlikely: from the flimsy leaps in deductive reasoning, to the unprofessi ...more
This was an excellent start to this series! The story was strong and both MC's were likable. The sexual tension was fierce as were the sex scenes. Couple that with the case they were both working on, which was bloody awful, and it is amazing either of them came out of it with their sanity intact. No HEA here, though, sadly. From what I have read, there are to be four books in this series. As of this review, the first three are out. I think I will be waiting until the fourth book is released befo ...more

Threw me off a cliff but I have to give it 4 stars it was just that good people.....

***Edited to add****

Ok, I've had my coffee and I feel better now.

This series really sucked me in and had me hanging on to the end. Yes, I hate cliffhangers and run on series where I'm forced to wait it out for my HEA (especially when I start them before all the books are out...but who's fault is that...yup mine) but I'm hoping it's worth it in the end....

I'm invested in Jamie and Remy and I want to see them Happy
