Although Jason still has to work as a telemarketer for a local theater, he has finally realized his dream of becoming an author. While promoting his books and gathering a fan base are part of being an author, Jason never thought he would also have to battle pirates.

If you read eBooks, then you probably know about the many problems eBook authors face with piracy and trying to protect their books. In Cops and Rubbers, author A.J. Llewellyn takes these problems and weaves them into a romance that was fun to read.

Jason, the author in the story, works a couple of jobs, as well as writes, in order to make ends meet. The fact that his books end up on the pirate sites almost as soon as they are published isn’t helping. Darius is our pirate. While he knows what he’s doing is illegal, he does not understand how he could possibly be hurting anyone. The two men don’t meet right away but when they do, the connection between them is instant and intense. With several obstacles, besides the obvious and a few twists and turns, the author keeps the reader glued to the story. While I thought Jason went a little easy on Darius, I loved the way the author wrapped the story up.

You would think that because of what he does, Darius would be hard to like. I would have thought that the anger and frustration Mr. Llewellyn feels towards the pirates that steal his work, something that he talks openly about on his blog, would find its way into the building of the character, making Darius unredeemable. The fact that readers will be drawn to Darius is a credit to the author’s writing. Readers of m/m stories are sure to love this one so pick up a copy soon.
