Story Overview:
State trooper Brandt’s new assignment to infiltrate a sex-cam operation puts him in a very uncomfortable position, especially since he’ll have to perform naked on camera for his audition. Fortunately his partner and best friend, Donnelly, has his back—whether that means helping Brandt shop gay boutiques for sexy underwear or offering Jäger and encouragement while he researches porn.

Despite his mortification, Brandt gives the audition his best “shot”—and becomes an overnight sensation. But to meet the man behind the operation, he'll have to give a repeat performance, this time live on webcam opposite the highest bidder. Donnelly makes sure to win that auction for his partner’s sake, but their plan has a flaw: faking it is not an option.

In the aftermath, Brandt is a humiliated mess trying desperately to come to terms with what he’s had to do for the job and his own mixed feelings. But Donnelly has been on a journey of discovery of his own. Suddenly everything the two men thought they knew about themselves and each other gets turned inside out. Meanwhile, they still have a case to solve… but it may not be the case they thought it was.

My Quickie Review:
I read this book entirely because of J9's review of it on The Book Vixen (I highly recommend you check out her review. She states everything perfectly about this book!). It totally lived up to everything she said about it. Just a fun, fabulous book.

Honestly, I can't even tell you how many times I laughed out loud while reading it. It was wildly entertaining, definitely a little far-fetched, but that did not affect my enjoyment of it one little bit. The writing could use a little bit of polishing with the pov, which switches constantly, but overall this was just a really fun, entertaining book.

I didn't want to stop reading it from the moment I started it and completely fell in love with these two characters, who are so straight and out of their element, that you just can't help falling in love with both of them. It made it that much better when they fell in love with each other. I look forward to more from this author!
