Love & Loyalty
Faith, Love, & Devotion, book #2
Tere Michaels (Author) & JP Handler (Narrator)
Detective James “Jim” Shea is a Seattle homicide detective who has never taken his work home with him – until now. A case has gotten under his skin and though it’s “over," it isn’t for Jim. The emotional toll has left him vulnerable and tied to the victim’s dying father.
Meanwhile, Hollywood comes calling for a hot story, and screenwriter Griffin Drake sees the tragic case as his ticket to more serious fare than his usual action blockbusters. But to get the whole story he needs to win over the stoic and protective Detective Shea.
Neither man has had much luck when it comes to romance or long-term relationships and neither is particularly looking but there's an attraction from their first meeting that can’t be denied. Their impromptu first date seems to have no end in sight – quickly becomes a barreling freight train of romance.
Looming problems outside threaten their relationship – death, secrets and broken trust – and they'll have to learn loyalty to save their newfound love.
In this second book of the series, readers meet a new couple who live clear across the country. Their story is uniquely their own and just as compelling as Evan and Matt from book one. The author has the ability to create a complex storyline while maintaining focus on the couple. As the plot weaves around them, its the relationship forming between Jim and Griffin that held my attention.
The narrator once again gives a perfect performance, using his voice to enhance the story. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series... I'm starting to feel as if these characters are my friends.
