Fish Out of Water by Amy Lane : Release Day Review

fish out of watersynopsis

PI Jackson Rivers grew up on the mean streets of Del Paso Heights—and he doesn’t trust cops, even though he was one. When the man he thinks of as his brother is accused of killing a police officer in an obviously doctored crime, Jackson will move heaven and earth to keep Kaden and his family safe.

Defense attorney Ellery Cramer grew up with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth, but that hasn’t stopped him from crushing on street-smart, swaggering Jackson Rivers for the past six years. But when Jackson asks for his help defending Kaden Cameron, Ellery is out of his depth—and not just with guarded, prickly Jackson. Kaden wasn’t just framed, he was framed by crooked cops, and the conspiracy goes higher than Ellery dares reach—and deep into Jackson’s troubled past.

Both men are soon enmeshed in the mystery of who killed the cop in the minimart, and engaged in a race against time to clear Kaden’s name. But when the mystery is solved and the bullets stop flying, they’ll have to deal with their personal complications… and an attraction that’s spiraled out of control.

paula reviewI really enjoyed this story. However I had to kind of forget about what is going on in the real world right now, and just put myself in the story.

First you have Jackson Rivers, a former cop turned PI. He is very much a no strings kind of guy. Men, women it doesn’t matter. And he has had a lot of people in his bed. I really liked this character. His attitude and personality was so good. He has a whole bunch of issues, and all of them are well deserved. His life has not been easy. His relationship with his family was beautiful. The loyalty and love there was incredible.

Ellery is like the complete opposite of Jackson. He grew up in a stable, privileged home. He was perfect for Jackson. He could take Jackson’s attitude and dish it right back.

I loved watching him push Jackson to get what he wanted and what Jackson needed. Some of the scenes between these two were page smoking HAWT!! Ellery was fearless in his pursuit to get to the truth. Highly recommend this one.
