L.A. Witt: Cover Me
Paramedic has to make a difficult choice when offering aid: while he saves one woman, another woman dies. Her lover threatens to kill him and another drug addict also becomes a threat to Nick, who just doesn’t know who to handle with the situation. Fortunately he meets Detective Andrew Carmichael at the scene … and falls for him.
While the death threats keep coming in, Nick is also accused of being a racist because the dead woman was Afro-American. Is it possible to have a good start with a relationship when everything just falls apart? Well, at least the sex between those two men is good. The suspense part is rather good but the relationship part lacks sincerity, I’m afraid.
After Andrew and Nick found one another, it’s time for Andrew’s friend Brian to see whether he’s made for a relationship, but apparently his new boyfriend James is a gambler who is trading drugs. And he is a murder suspect, not only of his own brother but also of Andrew’s partner. To be honest, after having read the crime scene description with the shooting and killing of Andrew’s partner, I already thought who the whole story might turn out…. and I was right. Still, it was an entertaining read with nice characters, although not surprising in the least. Could Witt have done better??
Well, this is just a pitiful rerun of the first part of the series (Cover Me) but without a crime plot, only two men who are apparently in love with one another, have great sex but who can’t communicate although their problems are so futile that they can be solved within two sentences at the end. Very convincing. Duh….
