Packing Heat 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.

Packing Heat
4 of 5 stars false
Dark and brooding firefighter Brad Archer has spent months denying his attraction to his roommate, Police Officer Gavin Connolly. Gavin is just the kind of guy he likes, tall, tough and buff enough to actually handle Brad’s big size and rough nature.
To hide his real feelings Brad holds the handsome, seemingly straight cop at arms length until a shooting at work leaves Gavin a little too vulnerable to ignore. What starts out as a simple attempt to comfort his roommate blows up into something wild, sexual and wholly unexpected when Gavin wants more from Brad than a strong, firefighter’s shoulder to lean.
The sexual magnetism drawing the two of them together forces secrets to be revealed and though the sex is mind-blowing it may not be worth weathering the storms their relationship could stir up. In order to protect him Brad realizes he loves Gavin enough to let him go. The problem is—The stubborn cop may not let him.


Phew!!This is how good m/m romance should be done, damn!!
I mean a sexy cop and a fully ripped fire fighter, does it get any hotter than that?
The story starts with Brad, trying to help Gavin his roommate,drink off a bad situation at work. Brad doesn't know that Gavin is gay but has secretly wanted him for ages. Gavin who is bi sexual, hasn't wanted to scare Brad away so he hasn't let on about his feelings concerning his hot firefighter roommate.
In his drunken state and in need of certain comforts ;) Gavin caves and finally admits to his feelings and desires.. what ensues is sexy, hot, emotional and hilarious in parts.
I couldn't help but fall in love with these two very alpha men. Brian with his guards up and Gavin with his easy going personality, they really were perfect for each other and their witty back and forth banter felt natural and flowed well.
Gavin huffed" I wasn't courting you".
"I think you were," Bread teased,feeling flattered nonetheless. "It's sort of like a straight man pretending to be gay in order to seem unthreatening and get into some woman's panties, only reversed---- and poorly executed. I'm definitely telling people about this"

For a short read, it was really well delivered.I could totally understand where the problems in their relationship came from. This story had feeling and depth and a certain scene that had me aching for Brian. Kele Moon had done a great job of packing a lot into something little and making it work. Very worthwhile.
