These two men continue to be an interesting, hot, and unique couple. This book has to be read in series order, but the first two books are also very worth reading - fans of sexy, complex men, and romance with a well-developed law-enforcement plot will want to start at the beginning. There is more relationship depth and development in this book, and some new facets of both men are revealed.

Bo was given the undercover assignment of going deep into a drug running biker gang. Lucky had to stand on the sidelines and watch the man he loves go it alone. He had every confidence in Bo’s abilities, but the total lack of control was enough to drive him crazy with worry. The investigation itself was compelling. I really got into it in a way I haven’t in the past books. Corruption is a perfect mix of investigation, adventure, romance, and hot sex. I loved this book!

I loved this installment of the Diversion series. Lucky and Bo are really interesting, multi-layered characters and the well-written, suspense-filled plot kept me glued to the story till the very end. I can't wait for book 4.

The story isn't entirely self-contained, since this is a serial book, but the plot builds logically, without any breaks or lose threads. And yet, there's enough tension left to carry over into the next book. Also, the unique subject matter makes this book interesting; I learned a lot while reading and still never felt overwhelmed with details. The pacing is just right, not too fast, not too slow; sex scenes are erotic without sounding either too porn or too flowery.

Part three - recharged. New crimes, new identities, new development in the relationship between Lucky and Bo: closer, harder, and more dangerous than before. Could Lucky allow Bo to breach the iron wall and build their happily ever after together? It was a really fun read. Thank you!
