Story Overview:
Deputy United States Marshal Mitch Knox apprehends fugitives for a living. His calm, cool, collected attitude and devastatingly handsome good looks earn him a well-deserved bad boy reputation, both in the field and out. While away on an assignment, he blows off some steam at a notorious Dallas nightclub. Solving the case that has plagued him for months takes a sudden backseat to finding out all there is to know about the gorgeous, shy blond sitting alone at the bar.

Texas State Trooper Cody Turner is moving up the ranks, well on his way to his dream of being a Texas Ranger. While on a two-week mandatory vacation, he plans to relax and help out on his family’s farm. Mitch is the last distraction Cody needs, but the tatted up temptation that walks into the bar and steals his baseball cap is too hard to ignore.

As Mitch’s case gains nationwide attention, how will he convince the sexy state trooper that giving him a chance won’t jeopardize his life’s plan...especially when the evil he’s tracking brings the hate directly to his doorstep, threatening more than just their careers

My Review:
Happy sigh! I do love Kindle Alexander's writing and I loved this story about Cody and Mitch. This may have been a book about the two of them, but Mitch completely took over the story. He's a 33 yo, irreverant, tattooed, in-your-face US Marshall who's having to spend most of this book working with straight-laced FBI agents. He's working a serial killer case that goes back to Colt's injury in the first book of this series. Someone out there is targeting semi-high-profile gay men and trying to kill them. Colt was lucky to survive and Mitch has been the only one to find the links between all the victims, but no one really cares to hear what he's come up with until a Senator's son is targeted. Now every political arm is involved and Mitch is having to play nice with some guys that he doesn't respect very much as a whole. 

But right before all that blew apart, Mitch met Cody while he was in DFW for a single night. Cody was also only in town for a night and took the opportunity to go out and celebrate his new promotion to the Mounted Patrol...just one more step to his goal of making it as a Texas Ranger...the elite law enforcement in Texas. He's looking to get laid...something he doesn't get to do too often with his small town and career-oriented life. 

Both these guys are huge (6'4"), muscular, and totally alpha and I loved that about them. Mitch is older...33 than Cody's age 26. Mitch is also much more experienced and aggressive when it comes to what he wants and that is Cody. Cody is way more unsure about this and while I didn't really like that at the beginning of the book, eventually I saw why that made them so perfect for one another. Mitch runs at everything balls to the wall. Cody takes things much more cautiously. But they are so freaking hot together. They only get moments in time because of their jobs and Mitch's high profile case. As a result, even though they are highly sexed together, they spend a lot of time apart and getting to know each other in other ways than just between the sheets. They also both work in law enforcement so they get that side of the other. 

This book is extremely sexy, but it's so much more. I loved the emotions from both the guys. They spend so much of the time apart that they both have doubts, but those immediately disappear when they touch base with one another again. These guys are both human (you know in a totally fictional character kind of way)...they have vulnerabilities and doubts. 

The focus of the page time when the guys are apart is centered on the serial killer story line. I normally dislike side-stories that take away from the romance, but this one was so well-done I was just as happy reading those sections as the romance sections. As a reader, I was just as emotionally caught up in those parts of the story. That's a great writer who can capture my complete and total interest like that. 

There are a lot of characters in this book that get a lot of page time. I really, really enjoyed watching Mitch work with his team on the investigation. Those interactions, although sometimes really serious, were always fun. He's just an irreverent guy that made all those scenes just shine and I spent a lot this book smiling. 

The book does have a little bit of a slow start, but stick with it. It picks up fast and then I started to hate how fast the pages were flying by because I didn't want the story to end. Now I'm ready for my next Kindle Alexander Nice Guy's book...maybe a slightly nerdy geek/hacker named Aaron and another sexy Marshall named Kreed??? please...
