L.A. Heat by P.A. Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When LAPD detective David Laine first encounters hunky party boy Chris Bellamere, it is to interrogate him about the murder of one of Chris's many sexual conquests. When Chris's efforts to prove his own innocence mark him as a victim, David steps in to save him, and finds himself falling in love with a man who might be a brutal murderer.
P.A. Brown's debut is a gritty mystery set in LA's edgy, less glamorous East Side, where gangs co-mingle with gays, gunfire is heard after dark, and where a gay cop like David Laine could live undetected. At least until now.
Holy hell this was a good story it had me guessing right till the reveal and then it kept my heart in my mouth till the last minute. This romantic suspense was first class and I loved that the romance didn't take precedence over the suspense element which helped make this feel like a dark and compelling tale that was pure class. This is the first in a set of book with these two men as the focus and I am looking forward to seeing how David and Chris work out.
