A Cole McGinnis Mystery

From the moment former LAPD detective Bobby Dawson spots Ichiro Tokugawa, he knows the man is trouble. And not just because the much younger Japanese inker is hot, complicated, and pushes every one of Bobby's buttons. No, Ichi is trouble because he's Cole McGinnis's younger brother and off-limits in every possible way. And Bobby knows that even before Cole threatens to kill him for looking Ichi's way. But despite his gut telling him Ichi is bad news, Bobby can't stop looking... or wanting.

Ichi was never one to play by the rules. Growing up in Japan as his father's heir, he'd been bound by every rule imaginable until he had enough and walked away from everything to become his own man. Los Angeles was supposed to be a brief pitstop before he moved on, but after connecting with his American half-brothers, it looks like a good city to call home for a while-if it weren't for Bobby Dawson.

Bobby is definitely a love-them-and-leave-them type, a philosophy Ichi whole-heartedly agrees with. Family was as much of a relationship as Ichi was looking for, but something about the gruff and handsome Bobby Dawson makes Ichi want more.

Much, much more.

This is a great addition to the series. I just love all the characters and enjoyed getting to know Bobby and Ichiro. Always a treat with Cole and Jae. I laughed so much at times. I can't wait for more and to see how it will play out with Bobby's son Jamie. Loved loved loved. Don't miss out.

Bobby Dawson knows trouble when he sees it. And his best friend’s brother Ichiro Tokugawa is definitely that. The man defines hot but know Cole McGowan knows that Bobby is a love ‘em and leave ’em type of man. Cole would never want him messing with his younger brother and, in fact told him that. Bobby is not sure how to stay away when Ichi pushes all his buttons. Ichiro grew up as his father’s heir with so many rules that he could no longer take it. He fled to LA but decided to stay when he met his American brothers and Bobby. He decides to follow his love of art and ink. Family is enough for him but Ichi knows what he wants and he wants Bobby. No one is going to stand in his way. Down and Dirty was in many ways a story of being true to yourself. Bobby had to make some decisions. He put some off and some he did not. Unfortunately, he found that sometimes the decision is taken from you and that the truth comes out at awkward moments. Bobby wanted Ichi and Ichi wanted Bobby. That should be an easy thing, but it is not. Down and Dirty is further intriguing by showing some of Cole’s actions from Ichi’s point of view. A very interesting book from beginning to end, be sure and pick this one up if you are fan of Cole and all his family and friends.

The first 65% or so of this book is going over what has happened in the previous books, but you see it from Ichi and/or Bobby's point of view. This gives you a more rounded view on what has happened, so it helps to put everything into perspective. As is said in the book, Ichi is an old soul so it doesn't seem that much of an age gap between Bobby and Ichi. This also means that there is little or no of the miscommunication that appears prevalent in some cases. These two actually talk things out, which is really refreshing to read. Claudia does her business in keeping her boys in line and all is good with the world. I would definitely say that this books adds a certain zing to the Cole McGinnis series. Definitely recommended. * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. I was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo looking forward to this book, and it did not disappoint! Ichiro is Cole's younger brother, and Bobby, his best friend. All through Dirty Deeds, Cole warned Bobby off Ichi. But the reaction they have to each other cannot be denied. And what I LOVED about this, was the time it took for Ichi and Bobby to finally, finally give in to that reaction, and the knowledge that they were both in such deep trouble. Some other reviewers did not like this book, since it kinda overlaps Dirty Deeds, and that book runs into this one, but I didn't see it like that. Its more of the same story, BUT with Bobby and Ichi as the main players, rather than Cole and Jae-Min. If that makes any sense! And Bobby was just a delight to read! We get deep into his soul, why he is the way he is. Why he is sleeping his way through the town's twink population. And just WHY he is so scared of what he feels for Ichi. We get into Ichi's soul too. Why he left Japan, what he really thinks about his brothers and their way of life, and why he desperately wants to at least TRY to make things work with Bobby. I have this, as well as book 3 and 4, to LISTEN to. I might just skip right ahead to this one. I can't wait to hear what Greg Tremblay does with Bobby and Ichi's voices, and their emotions. Because there are some deep dark emotions that come out here, and I wanna HEAR them now, as well as read about them. 5 full stars **same worded review will appear on Goodreads,,, Barnes and Noble and Kobo**
