Blurb: What happens when a detective falls in love with the criminal he is interrogating?
Daniel has been rising through the ranks at the Gannon City Police Department, and it’s not by chance — he’s dedicated himself to his job with a single-mindedness no one could question. As a detective, he’s ended up with a case that could make or break his career. He’s not going to stop until the guilty are brought to justice, no matter what the personal cost.
Ethan has a past he’s not proud of, and he’s doing his best to move beyond it. Instead of working with the town’s criminals, he’s pulling long shifts at the local gas station and barely making ends meet, but somehow he gets arrested for a crime he didn’t commit anyway.
When the two men come face to face in an interrogation room, both of their lives are turned upside down.
Daniel and Ethan might have dated in college, but now they couldn’t be more different. Daniel is a hardworking detective with a passion for justice, while Ethan is trying to escape a criminal past and just live his life.
When the passion between them can’t be denied any longer, can they overcome their preconceptions of each other to find love before it’s too late?
Review: Lots can happen when two people collide after tens years apart, especially when the breakup was not so pleasant. Matters become a bit more strained when one is the detective; the other the suspect. Ethan is just trying to build a new life after breaking free of the criminal underworld. He never intended to let his life sink that low, but life threw him a bad blow forcing him to quit college and support his younger brother. We all know how that works. Money was short, bills were not. Interestingly, Ethan used his genius technology skills to earn a living, though his boss was a crime family. When he could, he broke free and started a clean life. Once again money was short and the bills weren’t. But this time he persevered, leaving crime behind.
When he was arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, he came face to face with the lover he left behind ten years prior. Daniel had the dubious honor of interrogating his former lover when Ethan was arrested. Both were in shock. Ethan for his false arrest, Daniel at seeing Ethan after ten years of silence. The story builds as the two attempt to solve the city’s biggest case. Can they work together? Will their past interfere? Will love get in the way?
The premise of the story is great. Peter Styles’ development is also great. Though not a short story, Detecting Love could be read in one sitting and will deliver both suspense and romance. You kinda know how it will end, but the road to ‘the end’ is filled with twists and turns along the way. If you enjoy a fast paced, romance, crime story, then Detecting Love is a good pick. Give it a try.
