Dible Doug breaks his own rule and allows a one night stand to grow into a weekend of amazing sex When Christopher travels from San Diego to Montana to deal with his abusive brother’s suicide he doesn’t expect to find the man he spent the weekend with to be handling his brother’s case He certainly doesn’t mind spending time with Doug but then an arsonist destroys the house Ch. 45 stars I really liked this story about two cops complicated guys with difficult pasts who find each other over the course of a mystery involving the suicide of one man s brother The characters are interesting the relationship complex and the mystery intense almost too much so at the endChristopher had a very tangled relationship with his brother including a moment of extreme betrayal that separated them for over a decade His brother Peter went through a cycle of prison and sex offenses and is now dead leaving Christopher to deal with the aftermath When he reluctantly travels to do so he finds that the cop in charge is Doug the man he just had a hot no strings weekend with And the aftermath of Peter s life includes arson and abuse Doug is half Salish Native American and he left a job on the Miami Dade force to come home to rural Montana when his mother was dying He walks a difficult tightrope between white and Native worlds serving outside the reservation but close enough that he sometimes bears the full brunt of the local prejudices He had an abusive past relationship in Miami and is still dealing with the reflexes and nightmares from that On a rare weekend cruising he met Christopher who pushes all his like buttons From their first night together he wants But given the circumstances than a few days of hot sex seem unlikelyChristopher was in love with his straight partner for years until that got messed up with one unexpected kiss Doug looks a lot like his partner and he s not sure where this new intense attraction comes from or is going And the death of his brother is tearing open a lot of old wounds But both men are cops at heart and the mystery Peter left behind is one they are determined to solveI definitely enjoyed this book including the character of Christopher s partner who plays a minor role but adds complexity and banter to the mix The mystery involves a pedophile so readers should be aware The role of Doug s ethnicity to me was well handled neither ignored nor romanticized nor overemphasized The action went just slightly over my expectations at the end although in the process it set up some of the most fun parts of the book as Doug and Christopher s partner meet The ending is HFN and I will eagerly snap up a seuel if it comes out

A Casual Weekend Thing

Ristopher inherited from his brother and Christopher and Doug discover they are the primary suspectsAs they investigate they discover Christopher’s dead brother has set them on the trail of a psychotic pedophile who will stop at nothing to silence his last victim However the search for the victim goes horribly wrong leaving Doug hospitalized and Christopher at the mercy of the kill. 25 starsI m going to be a spoilsport but despite being ambitious A Casual Weekend Thing wasn t than an average read for meIt seems to me that the author aimed at something perhaps not complex but rich We have here many too many plot lines all revolving around the MCs and their hook up that lasts than a weekend due to circumstances plot lines revolving around the casual thing to finally join in the end in a big resolution It s a great plan if I read it correctly and it had the potential for a great book Or a seriesCops a partnership with sexy potential a possible triangle a mystery that deals with the difficult topic of pedophilia survivors interculturality a painful brotherly relationship grief guilt lonelinessAnd a growing romanceThe first half of the book bored me It is almost exclusively dedicated to the hook up and nothing much happens except sex I can appreciate hot messy sex but their reactions were illogical and everything was already set they feel something special but no no no it can only be a casual thing and we didn t move from this point The scenes were then very repetitive to me and didn t bring anything to the story s development nor to the characterization nor to the growing romance until finally the L word was spurted toward the end As for the hotness tough cops behaving repeatedly like blushing maidens doesn t turn me onI perked up when the mystery picked up and I liked the second part better but there were again way too many WTF moments and shortcomings to really enjoy itOverall it felt as if the author had this big plan and conflicts resolved themselves out of the blue or people acted illogically or we were given details that were irrelevant because everything had to fit in and everything had to go according to the initial plan It felt shematized forced andor far fetchedI probably would have overlooked many flaws if I had been emotionally involved in the story but I wasn t my heart flat lined all alongI m willing to plead guilty for numbness and lack of focus but then again it s the chicken and egg situationIt was correctly written though I liked this idea of Christopher always ready to bolt always running I liked Ray I appreciated that the author handled drama with restraintTo sum it up I liked the plan but none of the plot lines was sufficiently nor satisfyingly developed least of all resolved
