Fangirl Moment: Breaking Cover (Life Lessons #2) by Kaje Harper

For homicide detective Mac, it's been a good year. Having Tony to go home to makes him a better cop and a better person. For Tony, it's been hard being in love with a man he can't touch in public. Evasions and outright lying to friends and family take a little of the shine off his relationship with Mac, but Tony is determined to make it work.

As the Minneapolis Police Department moves into a hot, humid summer, Mac is faced with a different challenge. A killer has murdered two blond women, and the police have no real clues. Mac hates to think that another murder may be the only way they'll make progress with the case. But when that murder happens, it hits close to home for Tony. And suddenly Mac faces an ultimatum: come out into the sunlight and stand beside Tony as his lover, or walk away and live without a piece of his heart.

This book. This book right here. This book is the most perfect example as to why Kaje Harper is one of my most favorite authors of all time. I was completely blown away by the emotions in this story. Kaje made me do the ugly cry! And the words! The beautiful, creative, descriptive words and phrases woven into the conversations and inner monologues elevate Ms. Harper into an elitist category all her own.

“No time for slow, no time for thought, just the urgent rhythm of two bodies straining together, trying to become one. Now, and now, and now, and holy fucking shit!”

Tell me that’s not hot! Tell me that isn’t beautiful poetry!

There wasn’t a thing wrong with this story. I was pulled in from the beginning and kept completely enthralled throughout. I would give it more than 5 hearts if I could.
