Guest Review: Nothing Special VIII: SWAT Ed.: Fox & Bull by A.E. Via

A fox can set many traps to catch his target—but this one only needs one to catch his.

Dominic “Bull” Walker is used to the simpler things in life. Give him his own land to work, a strong horse, and twelve hours of daylight, and he is a contented man. But when someone threatens to take away the successful ranch that took him two years to rebuild, he’ll accept any help he can get to defend it.

Mandel “Fox” Tucker is a sixth-generation SWAT soldier. It’s embedded in his bones to protect and serve his community. So when he gets word of the vandalism occurring on the Walker Ranch, he quickly volunteers the free time he has, thanks to his recent suspension.

The brief visit Fox had with Bull four months ago had been a contentious—but powerful—encounter. Therefore, he’s not surprised when he shows up on his doorstep unannounced and has to pull out some of his best tricks to get past the six-foot-four, stubborn Texan.

Fox is only there to safeguard what’s most important to Bull. But being on the ranch brings an awareness to him that he embraces with both hands. Nature, peace… love—things he never found in the city.

Trigger Warning: Mild police violence. Scenes are not graphic.

Reviewer: Shee Reader

I have loved the whole Nothing Special series of books and audio books, and was looking forward to this one as it has a different energy than the other books being mostly set on a ranch rather than in the city.

Bull is a strong quiet man who has made a safe space for all kinds of animals and people on his land, but there has been disturbances and attacks. Bull’s father has a friend in the Atlanta Police Department so called in the big boys for assistance. Fox has an immediate response to the big man, and when circumstances conspire to leave him needing to get away from the city for a bit, he goes to stay at the ranch to look out for the folks and the business there.

When it comes time to go, Fox doesn’t want to leave Bull, but God and Day won’t take no for an answer!

Bull fears his man will never return, but he doesn’t know how big of a pull he has on the sixth generation SWAT man.

The heat between our two guys is stunning and story will totally suit fans of the hurt-comfort trope. The HEA is everything it needs to be. My only complaint is I’d have liked more dialogue and less strong silent stuff!

Highly recommended.

I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
