Overview

Vol. 1 (Books One and Two)

Jory Keyes leads a normal life as an architect's assistant until he is witness to a brutal murder. Though initially saved by police Detective Sam Kage, Jory refuses protective custody-he has a life he loves that he won't give up no matter who is after him. But Jory's life is in real jeopardy, especially after he agrees to testify about what he saw.

While dealing with attempts on his life, well-meaning friends who want to see him happy, an overly protective boss, and a slowly unfolding mystery that is much more sinister than he could ever imagine, the young gay man finds himself getting involved with Sam, the conflicted and closeted detective. And though Jory may survive the danger, he may not survive a broken heart.

This was a unexpectedly delightful read. I was recenty diagnosed with acute kidney failure and as such prescribed dialysis; so I had 4 hours, 3 days a week to just read. Whjile having been a gay man for all of my life and loved reading I had never thought of m/m romance as a genre. On a whim, having my blood transfused I googled and found this. OMG - I want both Sam and Jory as friends! While fiction is of course story telling, for a writer to be able to tell that story and for me as a reader to fall into that - it takes talent. And Mary has that. This story is BANK !! Read it now!

I am getting ready to read this series for the 3rd time and am surprised at some of the comments and reviews. This is truly one of my favorite series. True some stuff is repetitive but it shows the growing closeness in their love and Sam's finding and acceptance of who he is. I hope that those of you that read the first volume will continue with volume 2 and bulletproof then the conclusion in but for you. I laughed and cried my way through these books and enjoyed watching their aging and growing to become the unit they became. Love,love,love these books.

Loved getting to know Jory and Sam and all the additional characters in their lives. Good flow in the writing makes it easy to read and get drawn in. 700+ pgs.

This book was about 300 pages too long.  There was so much repetition, it began to get tedious to read. The author could have varied the initial interactions between Jory and Sam. They were so redundant.  Sam would come upon Jory, insist on giving him a ride home but stopping for something to eat first. I actually skimmed a lot of the dialogue between Nick and Jory. Every conversation was the same. Action explains external motivation and dialogue explains internal motivation. Nothing. I got nothing from the continued interaction of these two characters.  The whole Dane and Jory relationship I could not comprehend.  Maybe you have to literally have no one in the world to understand the dynamic of those two. It just didn't ring authentic.  The relationship felt contrived.  But the biggest mistake this author makes she "tells" too much and doesn't "show" enough, which is amazing considering this book is over 700 pages.
