Hello, tall, dark and handsome.’ Out and proud gay Albuquerque Homicide Detective Eagle Woodard studied Dr. Adam Coulter, criminal profiler, with a clinical eye. ‘Slender build…narrow waist, but nicely muscled underneath that Hugo Boss suit. People think you work out, Kemo, but you don’t.’ Eagle’s dark eyes narrowed. ‘You know I hate that day old beard look, but you were ...more

There's a LOT going on in this book, and underlying it all is the relationship between Eagle and Adam who have been friends since childhood. Eagle, an Albuquerque Detective, is out and proud while four-times married and divorced Doctor of Forensic Sciences and Psychology (read profiler) Adam is straight. Well, let's just say, Eagle is completely convinced Adam is straight, except for:
Sure they'd tease and touch each other sometimes intimately, but this was a byproduct of years of familiarity.

Strong 3.5 stars rounded up to 4. What started out a bit slow quickly evolved into an exciting thriller wrapped around a strong love story. Both Adam and Eagle captured my attention, while the search for the killer revved up my heart rate. Good, strong story

I was given an ARC of Warrior's Way by M.J. Calabrese in return for an honest review.
I'm very careful in choosing the books that I asked to review and I honestly thought that I had made a mistake with this book. I found the first couple of pages to be very stilted. It didn't flow well and I really thought that the author was trying too hard to impress the readers. This feeling quickly fell by the wayside as I got involved in the story. A killer is

Despite the fact that I had read the blurb of this story, It still shocked me. From the beginning the readers is thrown into a story of torture, torment, murder, serial killers and extreme hate crimes against gay men, romance, closeted gay, mention of alcohol abuse, and two men who are partners and childhood friends. Dr. coultre is unable to convince Eagle, his partner that things are not what they seemed or was being told. Unable to convince Eagle of the wrongness of some the decisions of an ...more

First let me starry by saying that I am sooooo glad there is going to be a second book at least because if not I would have been really disappointed. Now let me explain, this was a truly incredible mysterious read. I was on the edge of my seat through this read because even though you are able to figure out who the bad guy or guys are, you do not see what it coming. But you know that it is something and you just do not know when it is going to happen or the fall out after it does happen.

I went into this with some reservations considering the blurb, but they were blown away during first chapter. And I don’t mean what happened, but the description. It was literally breathtaking. It upped my expectations a notch.

It’s a suspense story, with two men participating in a plan to catch serial killer. They are comfortable in their relationships, being best friends and roommates. Both have secrets from each other, but are willing to ignore them to keep what they have, a lifelong

Warrior’s Way by author MJ Coulter is the first book in the Coulter and Woodward series. I am very torn about this book. From a love story standpoint, it is okay. The ending really was not one I liked at all.
From a murder mystery standpoint, this book was really good. I liked the action and adventure. I just feel the romance was very all over the place.
Eagle Woodard is a former army ranger. 38 years old and confident in who he is as a person and what he can do with his abilities. He is an
Adam and Eagle have been friends since they were eight years old. Eagle thinks that he has been in love with Adam that whole time too. Adam has tried to be in love but can’t seem to make it work. When they close in on a serial killer, their bonds are severely tested.

This was an interesting story. Some twists, not all the good guys are particularly good, but the bad guys are really nasty. Graphic depictions of torture abound. I mostly liked the book. It seemed like it was rushed in places to get

I wanted to like this one, but there was just so much going on. It was quite difficult to follow along when there were competing focuses throughout the story. It didn’t feel like a even balance between mystery/thriller and romance. I didn’t feel compelled to root for Eagle and Adam as a couple, and I didn’t buy into their romance.

Then there was the addition of Michelle’s hidden life that seemed only for shock purposes. It didn’t really add to the story. The will they won’t they with Rick

Couldn’t put this book down!

This book has something for everyone! I spent the whole time cheering for the main characters to end up together and also for them to catch the killers. The cliffhanger at the end of book one leaves me waiting anxiously for the second book. This book is definitely worth the read.

I was really excited about this book when I read the blurb and while I enjoyed it for the most part it leans a lot more towards mystery/suspense and less towards romance.

Also the writing style really had me confused on who was talking when but after a couple of chapters I did get used to it and it wasn't as distracting.

Not a bad read, just wasn't what I was looking for.

Give me more!

Two flawed heroes and bad guys you'll love to hate. Plenty of action and angst as these two friends to lovers work to capture a serial killer. I want to see more from these two. The mystery is solved but the relationship is left open ended. I want them to have a happy ending and I think they will with a second book. Come on, M.J. don't leave me hanging!
