Beau suffers from OCD, but, rather than let it get him down, he uses it to make a success of his life.  While he loves that his events business is going strong, he wishes he had someone in his life to come home to.  Enter Officer Nash Tyler.

I loved this newest story by author AKM Miles.  The characters are well written and the story itself had me laughing more than once.  Beau suffers from OCD, something has caused problems with his relationships in the past.  I like that, rather than letting it rule his life, he is making it work for him.  I also like that it is not something that is constantly harped about.  Nash is an officer with the local police force.  With the exception of his boss, no one knows that Nash is gay.  This changes as soon as Nash and Beau meet.    Poor Beau, as soon as he overhears the two little boys talking, you know things are going to go bad, but his and Nash’s introduction was hilarious.  As Beau seems to be a trouble magnet, there are many more crazy scenes like this in the story. 

Although the men’s love story is a sweet one, they find themselves battling outside forces who feel that the love they have for each other is wrong.  While the reader may know who the bad guy is, they will be surprised by the extent that he goes to.

All in the Details is a great, fast paced story.  I could not wait to see what would happen to the men next.  I loved the strong connection they forged so early in their relationship and the passion between them heats up the pages.  The small mystery that is woven into the story keeps the reader entertained and moves the story along nicely.  If you have not yet tried a story by this author then I strongly suggest you start with this one.
