Michael Knight is an excellent undercover cop and could take a joke. However, the recent jokes and pranks from his co-workers in regards to his name went too far when they messed with his truck. His fury leads to him walking out on the job he loves and a desire to hit something or someone, like the guy leaning on his truck.
Aaron Slade has worked alone undercover for the International Narcotics Enforcement & Tracking agency for years. When he’s sent to meet his new partner, one he doesn’t even want, sparks fly.
Fists soon follow as Slade deals with Knight’s anger management issues over everything, but especially his I.N.E.T. training. All Knight wants is to be back in the field with his new partner, but it turns out that isn’t the only thing Knight wants from Slade.
Well…let me you tell you, I thought some of the other books I’ve read from this author were great, but even the best of them kind of pale against this newest work from Ms. Cothern.
Saying I loved the story line, the characters, the plot, and oh, I don’t know, everything about the book, would be an understatement. I’m really really loving where she is going with this one. I’ve always been impressed with Ms. Cothern’s voice, which comes out in her writing, but this one is a new high.
We first meet the unfortunately named Michael Knight when his coworkers at the Tampa Police Department have been riding him terribly about his name, because…for those you not old enough to know it, Michael Knight was the name of David Hasselhoff’s character in the television show in the early 1980’s called Knight Rider. The car in that show was named K.I.T.T. and it was a tricked out Trans Am if I remember correctly, which was computer controlled, and had a snazzy red light that ran back and forth in its grill. This is important, because that is what finally causes Knight to explode. The other officers have messed with his prize pick-up truck and replaced the flashing police lights in the grill with a red bar like on the car in that show.
When he goes to complain, he finds out his Lieutenant hates him, and not only that, the Lieutenant is a total homophobe and everyone in his department has found out he is gay. That is why they are tormenting him, and the Lieutenant refuses to do anything about it. Knight doesn’t notice the other man in the room when he is yelling at the Lieutenant, but that man surely notices him.
Aaron Slade is an agent for an elite international organization called I.N.E.T. which stands for International Narcotics Enforcement & Tracking, and he was there to inform Knight’s boss that Knight has been recruited by I.N.E.T.
After a ton of confusion, Knight ends up at the training facility for I.N.E.T., and the story only gets better from there. We have drug dealers, we have snotty instructors, and we have some definite chemistry between our two MCs. But enough on the spoilers! Take my advice, hit one click right now. If you’re a Kindle Unlimited member, it is a free read! Either way, you won’t be sorry. I need to know when the next one will be out Ms. Cothern!!! Please, please, please make it soon!
