  • Fosters brothers in love, but one is fighting it.

    Broken Protocol is the second book in the Smoke & Bullets series by A. R. Barley but you don't need to have read the first book to enjoy this one. Characters from book one, On Duty, make brief appearances but you won't be lost if you haven't read it first. NYC Detective Dante Green and NYC Firefighter Luke Parsons were foster brothers 10 years ago. Luke had a crush on Dante when he was young but didn't know that Dante shared his feelings; he's always thought that Dante is straight. Dante has kept himself far away from Luke over the past 10 years to avoid temptation; he's sure that his foster father wouldn't be happy if he learned that he's been lusting after Luke. I really liked this story a lot. It's not told in a taboo relationship way (I usually hate those kinds of stories). There is no blood relationship between Dante and Luke and they were teens when Dante came to live with Luke's family. Dante hates that he can't seem to control his feelings when he runs into Luke at the Smoke & Bullets bar. When he and Luke start working together, off the books, to try and find out who is targeting gay men, he finally has to admit defeat when he realizes that Luke also has feelings for him. This was a very compelling story and I couldn't put it down. My feelings were fully engaged while reading this and the mystery surrounding the gay basher and the secret that Luke has been keeping from Dante had me on the edge of my seat in places. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Shift's End, which the publish says will be out later in 2018. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***
