Quad Shot of Love: Very Good Read

Blurb:  Detectives Mitchell Reid and Joseph Valentino of the Chicago Police Department have finally moved from friends to lovers, partners on the job and off. Then an escaped bank robber with a thirst for vengeance shatters their world. The police tactical raid to recapture the convict goes horribly wrong, leaving Mitch severely wounded and Joey with a devastating head injury. They both survive, but Joey’s long-term coma and memory loss will change their lives—and love—forever.

Review:  A bittersweet story of hope, loyalty, healing, grief and unconditional love.

This is not a traditional romance story where we watch the slow development of love.  When we meet Mitch and Joey they are already in love and just beginning to explore the physical side of a long friendship and partnership.  When tragedy strikes and things seem to just get worse Mitch has to make some tough decisions and their relationship becomes a test of endurance and unconditional love.

I felt for these men.  I cannot imagine the pain and grief Mitch felt as he struggled to hold on to faith and hope while trying to do what was best for Joey.  He never faltered in his commitment.  And poor Joey waking up to a different world where so much had happened while he was in a coma.  His journey back to a sense of normalcy and good health was daunting.

The story moves back and forth through time, giving us glimpses into the men’s pasts and moving forward in their lives.  You have to pay attention to the time changes or you can get a little lost.

I enjoyed this story.  It was sweet and sad while still being full of hope and love.
