Blog post and review: Here Comes Trouble by A.E. Via


Synopsis:

Detectives
Mark Ruxsberg and Chris Green are very good at their jobs. Being the
enforcers for God and Day’s notorious Atlanta PD Narcotics Task Force
causes the crazy duo to get into more trouble than they can often get out
of. The pair never misses out on an opportunity to drive their
Lieutenants crazy with their dangerous, reckless, and
costly stunts, landing them in the hot seat in front God… often.

Ruxs
and Green love their jobs and they don’t mind the very demanding schedule that
leaves them little time for socializing or dating. It was fine with them, they
enjoyed hanging out with each other anyway. 

However,
most of the men in their close circle of friends and colleagues are pairing off
and settling down. God has Day, Ro has Johnson, and their Sergeant
Syn has Furious. 

For
the past several years, Ruxs has only sought out the advice
and company of one person, his partner and best friend Green, and vice
versa. Both of these alpha males are presumed straight, but neither can
deny the heat that’s building in their once ‘just friends’ relationship.

Denise’s Review:
First, did you see the cover? If not, page back up and check it out!!! That is a delicious cover!!!
Now on to review. What can I say about this latest A.E Via book? Another hot, delicious ride through Atlanta’s dirty streets. These men she creates are just amazing.  A little (or a LOT) emotionally messed up, full of testosterone, and all apparently drawn to each other’s orbit.
Ruxs and Green have been partners and friends for five years, and are just getting to the point of admitting feelings for each other. They definitely have their work cut out for them, though. Ruxs with his issues in regards to his mother’s drug use and abuse of him, needs Green to be his friend, his confidante, and partner in every way. And Green steps up to the plate the instant he recognizes that need.
These men have such a great relationship, before they ever decide to turn it romantic. They enjoy each others company, make each other laugh-no matter the circumstance, and get into trouble together as enforcers for the narcotics task force. They make a great team, in all aspects. 
**Side note: DAMN, Ms. Via can write some of the HOTTEST sex scenes you will read.** 🙂
It was great to catch up with the entire cast of characters, and it was especially great to see so much of Curtis, who we met back with God and Day. I really enjoyed seeing his story move forward, as tough as it is.
Another great book by Ms. Via, and I’d love to see how this series might continue on!
Final determination is 4.5 pieces of eye candy…and boy is there A LOT of eye candy in this book.

Excerpt:
Green pushed hard, dislodging Ruxs from his back. He looked
over his shoulder, and did a double-take at the clear look of lust shining in
those light green eyes. Jesus Christ.
He jammed the key into the lock and hurried inside. He let Ruxs stumble his way
in on his own. Tossing the keys in the dish on the table, he moved further into
the loft, flicking on the lights as he went. He was in the kitchen pulling out
the carton of orange juice when he heard the light switch flick again, putting
him back into darkness. The street lights shone through the large windows,
casting shadows all over the place. He turned the carton up to his mouth,
figuring that Ruxs had hit the light by habit and was already in his room,
probably face down on his bed. 

Green shoved the juice back in the fridge and closed the
door. He turned around and ran into a brick wall. Ruxs’ chest. He was standing
directly behind him, quieter than a mouse in a room full of cats. 

“Fuck! Ruxs, what the hell are you doing?” Green barked.
Looking directly into Ruxs’ heavy-lidded eyes.

Ruxs didn’t say a word. He didn’t smile. He didn’t laugh it
off or say it was an accident. He just stared him down. 

“What. Are. You. Doing?” Green said with more irritation in
his voice. 

Ruxs took a couple steps forward and Green instinctually
moved back. The refrigerator was at his back and Ruxs’ arms slowly came up and
caged him in. Their faces were only inches apart. Damn he was acting so weird.
But Green was going to let him play out his little game so they could go to
bed. 
 

“Something on your mind,” Green said through clenched teeth. 

“Actually, yeah.” Ruxs finally grinned and Green got the
confirmation that it was just Ruxs being his usual asshole-ish self. “Why do
you think so many men are gay?”

Green resisted the urge to put Ruxs on his ass. “Are you
shittin’ me right now?”

“No. Really. I was just wondering that.”

“Oh. You were just
wondering that?” Green gave him a bullshit look. 

“Yeah. I mean we work around all these big motherfuckers
that are head-over-heels in love with other men. God and Day. Syn and Furi. Ro
and Johnson. All these badass men. Queer as a three-dollar bill. Highly
respected.” Ruxs leaned in closer and whispered softly, “In fucking love. Why
is that? What’s so great about it?”

Green gritted his teeth. “When you see God tomorrow, why
don’t you ask him? I’m sure he’d love to give you the answer. Just make sure
I’m there. I’d hate to miss that.”

“Why are you mocking me?” Ruxs growled low and Green stood
up straighter. 

“I’m not mocking you. But you’re being ridiculous and I’m
tired. Now move.” Green knocked Ruxs’ hands down and shoved him back with his
own chest. They were the same height, same build. Evenly matched. Ruxs dug his
heels in and stopped them. Ruxs put his heavy hands on Green’s shoulders and
begin to squeeze them. Green sighed heavily, wondering when this madness was
going to be over. 

“You’re so damn wound up. You want a massage?” Ruxs asked
nonchalantly like he was offering Green a piece of gum. 

Weirdly enough, massages were pretty common. Ruxs rubbed
Green’s shoulders all the time. Sometimes he had to rub cramps out of Ruxs’
calves after they worked out. After a good sparring match, Ruxs usually ended
up working the kinks out of Green’s lower back. But neither one of them were in
any pain right now. Except Ruxs being an annoying pain in his ass. He was
exhausted and they had to be to work early. 

“No. I don’t want a damn massage, Ruxs. It’s after fuckin’
midnight, get your damn hands off me.” Green knocked those very talented hands
off his shoulders and maneuvered around his partner. Thank God, this time Ruxs
let him go.
