Aldric Beamer thought working in an antique shop would be safe and boring. He never expected to find his life—or his heart—in danger…

Being the low man on the totem pole is nothing new for Aldric Beamer. The youngest of three siblings, he was always the afterthought in his family, but Aldric’s trying hard not to let the little confidence he has sink any lower.

Aldric loves the job he manages to land at Intrinsic Value, so much so that he often works off the clock—or maybe he just doesn’t want to go home to his empty apartment. Just as he’s slowly learning to trust his boss and co-workers, he’s attacked outside the store, and all the security he thought he had vanishes with the force of a blow to the head.

San Antonio cop Darrell Williams takes one look at the beautiful, bruised man he finds in a dingy alley behind an antique store, and something in his heart melts. This weakness scares him, making Darrell gruff and indifferent when he should have been—and longs to be—compassionate and caring.

Aldric’s no pushover, though. He’s had enough of being ignored and treated like he doesn’t matter as much as everyone else. And he’ll make damn sure Patrol Officer Williams doesn’t dismiss him, in any way…

What should have been an easy job turns into a life-threatening mystery for Aldric.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book – from seeing Aldric’s tentative and insecure beginnings at Intrinsic Value, to seeing his self-confidence and self-worth come out. He is a strong character that grows throughout the book. Darrell is the opposite – he looks strong but is so far inside the closet, he can see Narnia. Together, these two work perfectly. Now, I just need to know more about Elliot and Jonas!

The writing style is smooth, and the pace is perfect. Although this is the first book in the series, you don’t get a big info-dump on anyone or anything. I would have liked to have known a bit more about the families of both the main characters, but enough is inferred for me to figure most of it out.

This was a fun and sassy read that I have no hesitation in recommending. An excellent start and I can’t wait to read more in this series.
