Review: Copping an Attitude (Sin City Uniforms #2) by Morticia Knight

Vegas is filled with human cast-offs, yet officer Parker McLean sees something special in hustler Slade Wolfgang. Unfortunately, so does Slade’s pimp who wants to sell him overseas in the sex trade.

Hustler Slade Wolfgang has little choice over his fate. At the age of twenty, he’s had to survive any way he can since being thrown out of his home for being gay. As soon as he hit Vegas, Slade was lured into the hopeless world of prostitution where he’s become a virtual prisoner to his pimp, the ruthless Julio Estevez. His evil keeper has even threatened to sell Slade overseas as a sex slave.

It’s another typical night on the Strip when Parker comes across Slade. His heart breaks every time he sees someone so young being exploited. Something in Slade’s eyes tells Parker the young man might be in real trouble though—especially after the recent spate of sex worker killings from a rival prostitution ring.

The two men’s lives become intertwined when Slade is almost beaten to death. The danger grows, but so does the relationship between Parker and Slade. Parker helps Slade to heal from the horrific attack and their bond deepens. But the human traffickers are still out there - and they’re still looking for Slade.

Reading Morticia Knight is like munching on a bag of potato chips. I can't have just one and I can't stop until it's all gone. Plus, I love me some rent boys so, naturally, I gobbled Copping and Attitude right on up.

Slade is working the streets when he gets chased down by Parker, which of course scares the crap outta him, since Parker is a cop.  He's not so much scared of Parker as he is of the consequences he'll face from his pimp if he's caught.

Parker is instantly drawn to Slade. He sees something in him that he wants to get to know and he also sees someone who needs help. He can tell that Slade doesn't want to be stuck in this lifestyle, but there might not be a way out. Or, Slade can't see a way out at least.

They have a couple chance (and not-so-chance) meetings throughout the beginning. There was a strong build up of both guys before they got together, so I was definitely ready for them to happen.

A very unfortunate event finally brought them together, but that's when Slade started to really let down his guard and Parker moved right on in.  Parker was so perfect for Slade, almost too perfect, but I let it slide because he was so darn sweet. He was patient and kind and exactly what Slade needed. Slade was a pain in the ass, but it's to be expected given his lack of experience with true affection.

There's something so accessible about Morticia's writing. It's easy and sexy and a little fluffy. Like I said, Parker was way perfect and things were on the lovey-dovey-mushy side, but I read this in just about one sitting. And, in this household, that's definitely saying something! It's a hot little treat, the perfect antidote to a stressful day. It'll leave you with a happy sigh and a smile.
