Breaking Cover, An Ultimate Indulgence

A Handcuffs and Lace Story that is by far the best in the series!
Home for six months after an undercover assignment at BDSM club Testing Leather, Homicide detective Brian Hurley can't shake the memories, or the feelings he developed, for undercover partner Griffin McManus.
Griffin's having his own problems in the aftermath of the job, and he shows up on Brian's doorstep, hoping one last night together will allow him to put it all behind him.
Will reconnecting as themselves help them let go, or will they find everything they need in each other?

What a way to start my down time. I have been so crazy busy at work that I haven’t had any time to read. I finally got caught up and thought a short story was in order (a little indulgence for me!) so I reached for something from Sean Michael.  You always know that it’s going to be a good read and I really didn’t want to be disappointed.  After writing over 20 books in a series you would think it would get old so I had my reservations.  I have to say that the first couple didn’t really make me jump up and down.  They were good – don’t get me wrong.  His latest is great though and so I say to you get the darn book and READ IT. You won’t be disappointed either.

What made Breaking Cover so special was the constant changing from the present to flashbacks from the case. I was amazed at the depth of this short story and the development of the two characters. As some of you know – I read just about anything but really, really enjoy BDSM. Brian’s character is a typical top (love them all) but you really would not get Griffin if it was not for the flashbacks. The way their relationship starts and then builds is what makes the plot great.

The only disappointment was that it was over too quick. I wish this was a full (500+ pages) novel of Brian and Griffin deep undercover at the Leather Club. I found myself asking a million questions - most of them surrounding their time undercover and not just their relationship but also the case.

OH but if I had one wish, it would be a similar story line with the suspense of a good case at a BDSM club. I would pay the bug money and buy it in a minute.
RATING: With no reservation, Breaking Cover is 5 chocolate-dipped strawberries. 
On to my next story and I am sure back in the near future will be another pick from Sean’s huge array of stories. If anyone has a suggestion then PLEASE send it my way.
