Genre: Paranormal M/M Romance
Reviewed by: Judith
Why you need this novella: the paranormal and the mundane life of cohabitation mingle in this super sexy new Psycop short. Hot dudes, kinky shenanigans, and…cleaning gutters? Clearly you need this!
Plot: Seasons change, and so do fashion trends. But in this heartstring-tugging PsyCop short, what’s beneath the clothes matters most.
Do clothes make the man? Jacob Marks cuts an impressive figure in his tailored suits, but Victor Bayne is another story. Nowadays, Vic does his ghosthunting in off-the-rack blazers, polyester blend slacks and cop shoes with nonskid soles. But back before he was a PsyCop—or even officially psychic—he rocked combat boots and a beat up biker jacket…and lots and lots of punk T-shirts. When he finds a faded tee in the back of a drawer, he’s eager to lob it in the trash. Jacob, however, finds himself waxing sentimental about Vic’s younger, more carefree days.
Review: Long time fans of Psycop and Jordan C Price will devour this latest addition to the series in one delicious bite; newcomers will find Vic and Jacob’s interactions a fun combination of smoking hot and committed loving. When Vic discovers a shirt that reminds him of his distant punk-riddled past, his long-time partner, Jacob, is intrigued by the man Vic once was before he honed his supernatural gifts, long before he even met him. Reconciling the Vic of the past and the Vic of the future causes Jacob to get extremely hot and bothered. And the resulting romantic interlude? It is all the best parts of these two as a couple: tender and sexy, poignant and raunchy, a mix of the mundane and their trademark sizzling chemistry. Jordan C Price really hits home the love and devotion these two men have for each other at a specific point in their relationship. It is definitely one quick read but the glimpse into their nostalgia filled relationship as well as how sizzling hot it truly is will make you want to read it again and again.
What you might not like: it’s a quick read that will leave you wanting more, more, more; the story is told from Jacob’s point of view meaning we don’t get a whole lot of Vic whose dry and savage personality are the main draw for the series; domestic scenes after the blush of first love is gone (some only like that initial umpf. If you’re one, you might not enjoy this as much).
What you will love: the sexy romp between Vic and Jacob is mind-numbingly hot; Jacob’s POV is a refreshing change; the easy, loving relationship the two have is nuanced and real, stemming from years of friendship, romance, and camaraderie.
