I took a chance and got this even though I said I was going to pass on it. It was cheap, so what the hell...

This story had SO MUCH potential, but it just fell flat. Too rushed? I wanted to know both Brennan and Keegan's back stories. I wanted more with Keegan and his (work) partner. I did think that Keegan was arrogant, but I thought it worked for him. However, I thought he could have been a little more useful during Brennan's flashbacks (you know, being a cop and all).

Best conversation of the whole book:
"I m-meant I can't come in the morning."
"Ever?"
"What?"
"Not coming in the morning. Personal problem, or have you not been with the right guy to do the job?"
Brennan's eyes widened.
"Give me a chance, and I can make certain you come in the morning."
"You don't m-m...fuck around, do you?"
"No. Not when I am with someone. And neither will you."
"N-not what I meant."
"I know, but it is what I meant. Afternoon then? I can swing by after lunch and pick you up. Be ready."


Overall, I think this could have been amazing as a full length. It just fell short as a novella, in my opinion.
