    • Review posted at Brief Encounters Reviews as part of the event celebrating Canadian Authors. Check out the interview with "Sue" one of the authors from this writing team here!Mitch has been in love with his partner on the force (Vice) for years now, ever since they became partners on the same beat. The problem is that Ivan is about to marry the love of his life, a woman. Even worse than having to watch the two together at their swank engagement party is seeing just how much of a shrew the woman [...]



    • I've read this story as a part of His Hero anthology and unfortunately I didn't like it.Don't get me wrong, it's well-written and I liked Mitch and felt for him, but the relationship's been way too one-sided for me. During the most part of the story Mitch'd just pined and suffered from his unrequited love, while Ivan had either continued loving his ex-fiance or later on found a new girl Jennifer and still regarded Mitch strictly as a friend and never showed any interest in men in general. The si [...]


    • The well-known theme of ‘best friends become lovers’ comes to fresh life in the heart wrenching and hot story of two police detectives who have been best friends forever. It takes a major shock (that of Ivan’s engagement breaking) followed by life-threatening catastrophe for them to realize they can have so much more than a working partnership. While real life is not always this extreme, the basic reality is still the same: facing the prospect of losing someone forever is sometimes the onl [...]


    • 2.75 stars, if I want to be generous.At 49 pages in my reader, what you read in the blurb is all you get in the book. I didn't know whether Mitch was gay or he was still deciding; I thought Ivan was straight all along until suddenly, he's saying stuff like "I've got years of repressed longing to make up for".Forty-nine pages is much too short to deliver a decent story. Pure porn, yes. But ItNotL is not cop porn. It's supposedly about gay cops - who don't know they are gay; or one of them doesn't [...]


    • Ehhh. Not really a heckuva lot to it. Mostly the story of a guy who takes forever -- and ever -- and ever -- to gather enough courage to proposition his partner.One jarring incident had these two cops -- who are detectives -- going on patrol. Ummmm, guys, detectives aren't beat cops -- they don't do that! Otherwise, though, the story was told smoothly enough. Oh, but then there was also the always-straight-til-suddenly-he-isn't, no-emotional-trauma-in-changing-my-orientation, hey-I'm-an-anal-and [...]


    • I've enjoyed other stories written by Sue Holston and this one was no exception. I always enjoy the "best friends become lovers" plot, and the fact that Mitch and Ivan are cops made it even more appealing to me. I do wish the book was longer, though. Some parts felt a bit rushed. Other than that, a good read!


    • 2.5 Stars. Very short story with the typical friends to lovers theme with one being straight and the other bi. While the writing wasn't bad, it was just too short to be a solid story.


    • 3.5 starsThere really isn't anything new in this story. Mitch and Ivan were cops. Ivan was dumped by his fiancée on the night of their engagement. He ran away, Mitch found him, and Ivan got a bj of his life. They didn't say anything the day after, and Ivan got shot. Mitch regretted not telling his feeling earlier. When Ivan recovered, he needed to say it to his best friend.Still, it's a nice quick reading. Mitch sounds a bit whinny sometimes, but Ivan is fine-albeit a bit stereotypical GFY char [...]


    • It was all right, but it was a bit fast-paced for me, but not in the way that their relationship was fast-paced (although it was a bit insta) but more that the book itself was fast-paced, but not in the exciting manner. The writing was good, though.2.3 stars


    • Thanks to a review on ReviewsbyJessewave for the anthology His Hero, I bought this title and "A Ring And A Promise" as they were recommended. I enjoyed both stories tremendously and will look for both authors in future purchases.


    • This was a solid 3.5. Great chemistry with the MC's but I needed more. There were a few points where the plot jumped a little, and I would have liked it to be a little more flushed out. Best of the uniform themes releases from Total E Bound, so far, though.


    • Too short, the story feels like fast fowarded ;/Other than that, I like the chemistry between Mitch and Ivan, thou I don't quite understand with Ivan feeling for Mitch. I mean, in the end, he admitted that he wants Mitch, but what about his love adventure with his fiancee and his teraphyst?




    • Move along folks there's nothing to see here. It does not move an inch out of what you see in the description and the moderately good writing does nothing to invigorate an old premise.




    • This was a great premise but it really needed to be longer, paced more sedately with a bit more character development.



    • Very close to 4 starsIn the Name of the Law has been published as part of the His Hero anthology, a copy of which I own.





    • I had read this one a while ago, but forgot I had it. I just re-read it and remembered why I wanted it in the first place. The only problem I have with it, is that it is not long enough! :)


    • A quick and sweet tale of two cops, one in love with the other. A few bad situations finally lead to the one telling the other about his feelings and them finding their HEA in each others arms.



    • Read this as part of the Hero Anthology and this was the least favorite of the bunch, at least til now. It was totally harebrained. Both MCs fell in the TSTL category.
