I think the older I get the more I like reading about older characters. Here I was surprised to realize that the main characters, Dix and Bryan, were actually in their 40’s. I was a little confused at first when Bryan introduced his college-aged daughters as the blurb didn’t give the ages away. Maybe it shouldn’t matter, and to me it didn’t, but to some it may.

Anyway, Dix is not the most lovable detective at first, and it took me a little bit to warm up to him. I guess it was probably more reali

Dixons Duty
By Jenna Byrnes

Dixons Duty, I really love a feel good romance, and that is what we get with these two older men. Is simple, short and snuggle up on the sofa feel good lazy day read.

I really enjoyed reading about two men in their 40’s. Dix and Bryan have their heads screwed on and were a lovely couple to watch fall in love.
Insta-Love at its best!

Short stories are my fav, I loved the combo these guys are, Dix is a cop and Bryan is a Bar/grill owner.

Murders, Mystery and More!

This would have been a 4-Star from me, but I hate the whole "I'm clean" thing. As opposed to what? Dirty? So, if you're positive you're dirty? Choose a different word, perhaps negative? I'm allowed to take off a star for shit I don't like and I REALLY hate the term "clean" in regards to being negative.

Back to the story. Hella insta-love, but I that's my thing. I love me some insta-love :) I really liked both Dix and Bryan.

I'm glad I picked this up for a quick V-Day read.

Contemporary M/M Police detective finds love while trying to find a serial killer in his town of Kansas city.
Detective James Dixon is out and proud in his Police force with some good friends on the force to protect him, but they can't help his single status. James is out on a case when he meets and falls fast and hard for the owner of the Last Chance Bar and Grille, Bryan Scott. Bryan and James are a really cute couple but the fact that they are practically strangers (no matter how hot the chemi

Reviewed by Brandilyn for Prism Book Alliance There are currently four stories in the Kansas City Heat series, though I suspect there are more coming if the name dropping of gay cops in the precinct is any indication. There is nothing wrong with this series, and I suspect it will be popular with people for a number of reasons. First of all is, of course, the HAWT sex scenes. In each story, the couple falls into bed together pretty readily. They aren't ever in it for more than a night or two, but ...more

Jenna Byrnes has a good start to her new Swries Kansas City Heat. It is a short story that has a little bit of everything for readers.

If you love murder and suspense, this book has it. If you love the odd couple meeting and falling love with each other almost instantly (love a first sight), this book has it. If you like having good supporting characters that can lead to another book in the series, this is your book. If you like a book where you do not know who the killer is and you have to keep

Jenna Byrnes could use more cabinet space and more hours in a day. She’d fill the kitchen with gadgets her husband purchases off TV and let him cook for her to his heart’s content. She’d breeze through the days adding hours of sleep, and more time for writing the hot, erotic romance she loves to read.

Jenna thinks everyone deserves a happy ending, and loves to provide as many of those as possible t
