…we're keeping our name but expanding our offerings!
I’m a fan of this series…it’s a lot of fun! And I want more of you to be reading it! So, before I review book 3, I’ll offer this giveaway. Enter to win all 3 of the current books of the series by leaving a comment on this blog post! (winner contacted by April 21, 2014)
Renegade biker. Drug runner. Recovering addict. Wanted by the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. But he isn’t a crook, he’s the law.
SNB Agent Bo Schollenberger’s solved his cases using his brains and not a gun, and with his partner, not alone. Now he’s handed a tough new case involving designer drugs that turn users violent. One false move could end his life as he immerses himself into a motorcycle gang to locate the source. His fate depends on how well he can impersonate someone else. Someone named Cyrus Cooper.
Cyrus is everything Bo Schollenberger isn’t, including the badass enforcer for a smuggling ring. He establishes pecking order with his fists and doesn’t take shit from anybody, not even the undercover agent who comes to help his case.
Simon “Lucky” Harrison’s always been the best, whichever side of the law he was on. Former trafficker turned SNB agent, he damned well ought to be undercover in this motorcycle gang, instead of hanging around the office going crazy with new policies, new people, and “inter-departmental cooperation” that sticks him in a classroom. Yet he’s passed over for the SNB’s biggest case in decades in favor of the rookie who shares his bed. A man Lucky thought he knew.
When survival depends on a web of tangled lies, lines blur, worlds collide, and a high stakes game turns friend to foe. Lucky knows the difference between Bo the agent and Cyrus the outlaw, but does Bo?
Ummm…can we just stop for a second to stare at this cover and the SEXINESS that is Bo/Cy here?
So, on with the review! Corruption is book 3 of the Diversion series by Eden Winters and I’m a fan! I’ve really enjoyed the first 3 books (and yay…there will be more! (well, at least 1 more from what I’ve heard!)) The characters are fun (well, Lucky is fun, Bo is HOT…and loving…and vulnerable…*sigh*) and the storylines are always engaging and have me suckered in. This one was no exception.
Bo is sent to train and eventually go deep undercover in a drug ring. A la Zane (Cut & Run) during his Miami days, it’s a dark place and time for Bo…and he’s gone for awhile. This leaves Lucky home, worried, stressed. Just as the “I love you”s had been exchanged, they’re separated. I, too, was home worried, stressed. Bo…well, I just don’t trust that he can take care of himself without Lucky at his back. But apparently, we don’t know all there is to know about Bo.
Book 3 is, for me, the best of the bunch to date. The undercover story is great. But even better is the growth, the uncertainty, the insecurity, and the strengthening of Lucky and Bo’s relationship. They face a lot of questions and doubt and eventually come out stronger in the end because of it all. I love Lucky’s quirkiness, which is borderline insanity in this book, but still so endearing. And Bo really shines in this book…stepping out of his boring straight-man role.
I wish for more people to be reading this series. It’s not the kind that I think will totally knock anyone’s socks off, but it’s one of those solid, entertaining, glad-I’m-reading-it series and I’d love for you all to give it a go…
