Tracy Brandt considers himself a lucky man. He has a wonderful family, good friends, and a dependable job. His love life, however, features a cheating ex who, though out of the house, is not yet out of the picture—with a past that just might get Tracy killed.
Homicide inspector Cord Nolan wants nothing more than to show his best friend’s little brother that he’s a reliable man, but to do that he’ll have to get Tracy to look past the player he used to be. It'll be a tough sell; reputation is everything, and Cord's is tarnished by his past indiscretions.
Tracy and Cord have spent five years trying to suffocate their fiery attraction under a blanket of grudging antagonism. When Tracy finds himself with a target on his back, Cord finally has the chance to ride to the rescue and break through the dam of Tracy's reserve. But he’d better be careful: if Cord is breaking the floodgates to wash away the past, he's going to have to hold tight to Tracy to make sure they're still standing when the tumult recedes.

I’d had no idea he could be so romantic, so serious, and the idea that I had brought it out ...
Too much TSTL happening here with Trace. His basically blind faith doesn't ring true, and I honestly don't care that he was right. It FELT off. Stabbity.

I could have used more time with Cord and Tracy together, and I would have liked a little more drama between them. It was like they both gave in and decided to stop being mean to each other too easily/quickly, and after all the crap with Breck, Tracy trusted Cord, who was quite the manwhore himself...
