Why I read this book: I enjoyed Lace and Silk.
Can a touch of Satin bring a straight copper to his knees?
Detective Joel Hunter is on surveillance when he first lays eyes on Satin, the singer with the amazing voice, which is as beautiful as she is. But when the stake-out comes to an end, he can’t resist going back to the bar. He gets a shock when he learns what lies beneath the satin dress, but an even bigger one when he realizes he’s attracted to the owner of that sultry voice – Ross Dauntry.
Ross can’t figure out why the cop keeps coming back, even after he’s learned the truth. Is Joel attracted to him, or to Satin? Because the answer is important, and one way or another, Ross needs to know….
A standalone novella of satin and sensuality….
Although this story is in the same series as Lace, you will not find Dave and Shawn in this audiobook – Joel and Ross provide enough heat of their own.
I’ve listened to several of the Material World books and have enjoyed them all. Each is unique, and the only thread is they all center around a fabric. This book has an interesting pairing.
Joel is a cop. A straight cop. Has he fantasized about other men? Occasionally. Does he feel an immediate pull toward Satin? Absolutely. She’s a beautiful woman with an amazing voice. She also turns out to be a he.
Ross is a female impersonator. He not only dresses like a woman, he does all his own singing. And he likes the cop by the bar who keeps dropping by even after the case is done. Desire can be a funny thing, and soon Joel realizes he’s not as straight as he’s always believed. But as a metropolitan cop, is he ready to come out?
I loved that his female partner was a lesbian and that her story featured prominently in the novel.
This was just a lovely book. Low-angst, dark moment that wasn’t all that dark, and several happy endings. I loved that being gay was just a natural part of living and I can certainly hope there’s more inclusivity in police forces going forward.
Finally I’ll mention Seb Yarrick. I enjoy his narrations and I love how well he and Ms. Wells work together. All in all, like I said, just a lovely book.
9.5/10 Pots of Gold (95% Recommended) – Compares to 4.75/5 Stars
K.C. Wells started writing in 2012, although the idea of writing a novel had been in her head since she was a child. But after reading that first gay romance in 2009, she was hooked.
She now writes full time, and the line of men in her head, clamouring to tell their story, is getting longer and longer. If the frequent visits by plot bunnies are anything to go by, that’s not about to change anytime soon.
