Title ~ Hyatt's Hunt (Kansas City Heat Book 8)
Author ~ Jenna Byrnes
Publisher ~ Pride Publishing
Genre ~ Contemporary M/M Romance
Kansas City’s latest serial killer suspect has just been released on a technicality. Can the homicide detective and the ADA work together to recapture the criminal?
KCPD Homicide’s newest detective, Jed Hyatt, apprehends a drug addict wanted for the gruesome murder of a local real estate agent. The man as much as admits the pretty woman isn’t his first victim. Before Jed has a chance to question him, the suspect’s lawyer gets him released on a technicality. Shocked and frustrated, Jed butts heads with the Assistant District Attorney assigned to the case, Brody Carpenter. Brash but sexy as hell, Brody lashes out at Jed for sloppy police work. He suggests the officers keep digging, and bring him any information they can uncover. In private, Brody’s interested in another type of ‘under the covers’ activity. Jed’s intrigued but concerned because the men are so different, yet Brody insists opposites attract. In a race to solve the case before anyone else is hurt, Jed discovers in a terrifying way that his actions have consequences, sometimes very dire ones.
Let me start by saying - I love the cover to this book. It’s so damned sexy, I almost drooled.
Anyhow, onto the story.
All the action between these literary covers is fast paced. Jed is the relatively new cop on the block, Brody is the Assistant DA. And there is chemistry between them from their first meeting. Brody and Jed are so hot in the sack, I was afraid the pages would alight. So, be warned; no reading by an open fire or when you’re feeling horny – you’ll be ash before you get to the end of the page.
For a story that’s 103 pages long, a lot is packed in. The case reads like it’s an episode on the TV and it certainly doesn’t drag. Much like Brody and Jed between the sheets, there is action here too, but I don’t want to give you too many spoilers.
Overall, some events the timeline seem rushed. But this is a short story and I put it under the classification of compact. If you love a story that gets right into the action and takes you on a ride for a few hours, you will love this.
