    So obviously looking for some spectacular plot in smut is like expecting good acting in porn And I m ok with that Heck this was probably gonna end up being a four star cause I m also very biased when it comes to GFY Yes, I have double standards No, I don t care So the problem was, this was trying to hard to have a plot I mean if you read this, you will understand Stupidity 101 It was also going for BDSM, where I, someone who cringes away from that was just laughing out loud at the sheer So obviously looking for some spectacular plot in smut is like expecting good acting in porn And I m ok with that Heck this was probably gonna end up being a four star cause I m also very biased when it comes to GFY Yes, I have double standards No, I don t care So the problem was, this was trying to hard to have a plot I mean if you read this, you will understand Stupidity 101 It was also going for BDSM, where I, someone who cringes away from that was just laughing out loud at the sheer stupidity of these two And the sex scenes, OMG, you have to at least have decent sex scenes If all else fails, YOU MUST HAVE YUMMY SEX

    Opening LineThis is gonna take some getting used to Set in the early 1980 s which kept me visualizing Starsky and Hutch and hoping for descriptions of Magnum esque moustaches THE ASSIGNMENT is a su weet read Just long enough at 161 pages and certainly steamy enough, I can see myself returning to this story again and again Filled with suspense, random humour, genuine emotion and sexual tension so palpable it just about killed me, Valenti and O Brian are a couple so deliciously hot and man Opening LineThis is gonna take some getting used to Set in the early 1980 s which kept me visualizing Starsky and Hutch and hoping for descriptions of Magnum esque moustaches THE ASSIGNMENT is a su weet read Just long enough at 161 pages and certainly steamy enough, I can see myself returning to this story again and again Filled with suspense, random humour, genuine emotion and sexual tension so palpable it just about killed me, Valenti and O Brian are a couple so deliciously hot and manly that you simply won t be able to get enough of them Plus with cover art this good how can you go wrong Detectives Nicholas Valenti and Sean O Brian have been best friends and partners for 6 years Often teased because of their open affection, they ve got each others backs on or off duty Through danger, donuts and divorce there isn t anything one of them wouldn t do for the other including taking a bullet or giving the occasional back massage That s a good thing too because Captain Harris s latest case is going to test the boundaries of even their tight relationship Nick and Sean s assignment sees them going undercover at the infamous gay resort, Ramjack Potentially they will be busting the notorious drug dealer who s been flooding the cities gay bars with bad cocaine It s a plum job that s going to look real good on their resumes, just as long as these hetro boys can convince everyone at the RamJack they re really a gay couple that is But just how far are these partners willing to go Once engaged in their roles as the sugar daddy and his boy toy the sexual heat literally jumps off the pages Forced to fake their affections in public Valenti and O Brian s discovery of each other though soft caresses and first kisses is beautifully done And because Sean and Nick don t start out as gay characters watching their miscommunications, emerging feelings and unfamiliar foreplay unfold is also interesting and exciting Because of the way most men are, when the gentle embraces carry over into their private suite they don t talk about their feelings or what s happening between them, they just continue to misinterpret each other and wonder The sex scenes here are erotic, tender and very satisfying Eventually Valenti and O Brian are left to deal with strong emotions neither anticipated having and a very straight world to go back to.My only real disappointment would be the abrupt resolution to their big case Its just over However because I was still shaking from the previous eye popping events it just didn t matter.A bonus 26 page short story called I LL BE HOT FOR CHRISTMAS has also been included here This takes place a year after the RamJack case and involves Valenti suddenly pulling away and distancing himself from an increasingly sexually frustrated and pissed off O Brian Could it have anything to do with his new and much younger partner Sean becomes determined to find out what s going on even if that involves kidnapping Cheers

    A likable hero Valenti paired with a not so likable hero O Brian hot, kinly M M sex scenes silly plot with big, jarring holes Dina was disappointed The premise of this book is simple Nicholas Valenti and Sean O Brian are two straight but not homophobicHomicide Detectives who, for whatever reason, are asked to work in a Narcotics Division s undercover operation to catch a big drug lord The glitch They have to pretend to be a gay couple in order to infiltrate the drug lord s headqu A likable hero Valenti paired with a not so likable hero O Brian hot, kinly M M sex scenes silly plot with big, jarring holes Dina was disappointed The premise of this book is simple Nicholas Valenti and Sean O Brian are two straight but not homophobicHomicide Detectives who, for whatever reason, are asked to work in a Narcotics Division s undercover operation to catch a big drug lord The glitch They have to pretend to be a gay couple in order to infiltrate the drug lord s headquarters, that happens to be located inside the RamJack, the biggest gay resort in the country Needless to say, Valenti and O Brian engage in a series of PDGA Public Displays of Gay Affection while they re at the resort just to fool the drug lord and his cohorts, of course BTW, my favorite PDGA was the Wankathon Yowza Anyway, don t you mind the silly plot It was nothingthan an excuse to have Valenti and O Brian falling in each other s arms and bodies and discovering the inner gay man that lived undisturbed inside them That worked for me partially The entire story is told from Valenti s POV, so it was easy to connect with him and understand his uncomfortable new feelings towards his long time friend and partner On the other hand, I was never let inside O Brian s mind and that prevented me from understanding him I didn t doubt he loved Valenti as a friend, but I needed to see him working things out in his mind Considering his background O Brian was the ultimate Irish Catholic Bostonian I had a hard time believing the easy way he embraced his newfound sexuality.The ending also left a lot to be desired, IMHO I know this isn t romantic suspense and the drug lord storyline was secondary to Valenti and O Brian s romance, but having the whole drug case wrapped up while Valenti was asleep literally was too much All in all, this wasn t a bad read Valenti s character was well written, but O Brian s was lacking I ve heard that there s a sequel of sorts to this book, a short story where O Brian gets to voice his POV I intend to read it and, hopefully, I ll finally get him and believe his love for Valenti is real EDITED TO ADD I just finished reading I ll Be Hot for Christmas, the sequel I mentioned above, and I m sorry to say I m still not happy with O Brian

    I found this book in the gay bdsm shelve, which is really an insult to somebody who, like me, is actually into gay bdsm The Assignment was the second Anderson book I read the other was Slave Boy and it was a big, big mistake to give her a second chance Basicly Anderson wrote the same book in two different settings, The Assignment for guys who are hot for cops and Slave Boy for sci fi fans, so both books suffer from the same almost painful to read flaws In both stories two men who I found this book in the gay bdsm shelve, which is really an insult to somebody who, like me, is actually into gay bdsm The Assignment was the second Anderson book I read the other was Slave Boy and it was a big, big mistake to give her a second chance Basicly Anderson wrote the same book in two different settings, The Assignment for guys who are hot for cops and Slave Boy for sci fi fans, so both books suffer from the same almost painful to read flaws In both stories two men who secretly feel attracted to each other are assigned missions that bring them into circumstances which intensify their desire The cops have to investigate a mafia boss who resides in the biggest gay resort in the country, where every sponsor has his boytoy or the two pseudo Jedi s have to negotiate with the emperor of an alienrace which still upholds slavery, so the younger one has to be the Slave Boy In both stories the bottom of course is the lil blond one, who has to wear all the arousing costumes you can think of Slavetrading emperor and drugdealing godfaher are in both cases suspicious of the heros and the way to verify the sincerity of the roles the heros are playing is of course sex Thats the only bdsm you will actually find in the stories, the two heros are forced by the curcumstances and the villains of the stories to have sex, which is in itself rather vanilla with a few exceptions in Slave Boy and the voyeurism of the various scenes Combined with the secret emotions involved, the forced sex turns both tops into huge drama queens and emotional masochists, guilt ridden Augustine sytle And thats my big problem with Mrs Anderson So far as bdsm is involved, she portrays it as something antagonsitic to the love the heros have for each other, as something foreign, something impelled by villains That a top can genuinely love a bottom and non the less wants humiliation, voyeurism and pain as part of their common sexlife seems to be something that Mrs Anderson isnt able to comprehend Her stories make it obvious that she simply doesnt understand male bdsm Thats why she has to come up with such ridiculous and twisted storylines, she needs a substitute for tops and bottoms who actually know that they want bdsm and like it Thus the bizarre holier than thou, innocently childlike and almost masochisticly conflicted characters, who overcome the villains and overcome bdsm in the end The latter is perfectly depicted by the last sex scene of The Assignment in which the bottom of the story fucks the tops Mrs Anderson doesnt write gay bdsm stories, she writes ridiculous, stuffy anti bdsm propaganda in form of slightly kinky stories

    4.5 Second time around read on this and I must admit I d forgotten what a fun sexy read it was Two straight cops, Valenti and his cocky partner O Brien best friends and partners for years, have to go undercover as a gay couple at a gay sex resort to bust a drug lord Valenti has been married but over time has become secretly in love with his partner so obviously the temptation is excruciating and as the guys are put in so many steamy positions were they have to prove they re gay, the sexu 4.5 Second time around read on this and I must admit I d forgotten what a fun sexy read it was Two straight cops, Valenti and his cocky partner O Brien best friends and partners for years, have to go undercover as a gay couple at a gay sex resort to bust a drug lord Valenti has been married but over time has become secretly in love with his partner so obviously the temptation is excruciating and as the guys are put in so many steamy positions were they have to prove they re gay, the sexual tension racks up to boiling point Three guesses what happens Its not something that hasn t been done before and yep, its pretty far fetched but these two are so endearing you can t help loving them and their exploits and it is hot Its one of those stories that I could read again because its such an easy feel good at times quite sweet read Earth shattering No Enjoyable Absolutely I really like this one

    I really enjoyed this book a lot I have had it for a while, however I put off reading it for some reason, and Im not sure whyThis is a story about two cops Nick and Sean They are exceptionally close friends There are even some rumors going around the station that they are lovers however Nick and Sean know better They are just friends Right Their Chief asks them to go undercover at a gay resort in order to catch an extremely evil drug dealer who dabbles in murder on the side Sean I really enjoyed this book a lot I have had it for a while, however I put off reading it for some reason, and Im not sure whyThis is a story about two cops Nick and Sean They are exceptionally close friends There are even some rumors going around the station that they are lovers however Nick and Sean know better They are just friends Right Their Chief asks them to go undercover at a gay resort in order to catch an extremely evil drug dealer who dabbles in murder on the side Sean and Nick have to be completely convincing as lovers, otherwise their lives will be at stake Pretty soon, the lines are blurred between what they are doing for the job, and what they are doing because they can t help themselves Their friendship has definitely turned into something , but will either Nick or Sean admit it The sexual tension in this story is unbelievable I could tell right from the beginning that there was a serious attraction between the men that neither one was willing to admit I loved seeing Sean coax Nick into some of the compromising positions they had to put themselves in, and I loved the uncertainty from both men about their sexuality and weather or not things had changed between them The sex scenes were smokin hot and the newness of everything really ramped up the heat factor I highly recommend this book

    I really wanted to give this book the benefit of the doubt but there is only so much I can look past in the books I read I must say, I am all for crazy and over the top story lines where I have to suspend reality for a minute, but The Assignment went a bit too far for me I LOVE friends to lovers story lines and especially when they are both straight and inexperienced but Sean and Valenti did not do it for me For one, there was miscommunication galore Seriously, if your best friend kisses I really wanted to give this book the benefit of the doubt but there is only so much I can look past in the books I read I must say, I am all for crazy and over the top story lines where I have to suspend reality for a minute, but The Assignment went a bit too far for me I LOVE friends to lovers story lines and especially when they are both straight and inexperienced but Sean and Valenti did not do it for me For one, there was miscommunication galore Seriously, if your best friend kisses you and sucks your dick just to make you feel better and to comfort you , then he has feelings for you and is most likely not doing it out of friendship Seriously, these two grown ass men are tender as fuck with each other and find any way to be intimate with each other all the time soooo.why was there any confusion BAH It was frustrating to read Besides the miscommunication, the story line was something I couldn t just looks past There were so many eye roll moments that it played like a bad porno with scripted talk and stereotypes I just couldn t connect with this book and felt it was a bit cheesy On to the next

    2.25Oh man, I m a little bit bummed out I was prepared for an over the top gay for you cop story with two straight best friends pretending to be together for an undercover gig in a gay resort to nail down a druglord I was absolutely ready to accept this whole set up hell, I was kind of looking forward to it.What I didn t expect was the utter ridiculousness of it all If the story hadn t taken itself so seriously, it could have worked But it did take itself seriously And the ridiculousness 2.25Oh man, I m a little bit bummed out I was prepared for an over the top gay for you cop story with two straight best friends pretending to be together for an undercover gig in a gay resort to nail down a druglord I was absolutely ready to accept this whole set up hell, I was kind of looking forward to it.What I didn t expect was the utter ridiculousness of it all If the story hadn t taken itself so seriously, it could have worked But it did take itself seriously And the ridiculousness didn t lie so much with the plot itself as I said that was kind of to be expected and totally fine it lay with the characters Oh my freaking gods Did Nicholas Valenti really seriously dive into an undercover mission that is allegedly superdangerous and did not prepare in the slightest Not a teeny tiny little bit Valenti and O Brian hadn t even talked about their basic cover story before where did they meet, what did they do, how did they get together, etc Are you kidding me And, holy crap, how clueless can you get Argh And how many people are you going to tell about the whole thing beforehand Isn t undercoverof a need to know instead of a let s announce it broadly for all to hear kind of thing okay, I do overstate things a little bit here, I admit it D And if Valenti is as incredibly uncomfortable and most of all unable to pretend otherwise with the whole thing, then why the hell would he do the op He has to be aware that it could get him and the guy he supposedly loves killed Who would do that If that is how these guys conduct police work, I wonder how they ever get any bad guy at all Or maybe those just throw themselves at their feet in pity I don t know Man, I couldn t stop shaking my head the whole way through.The ending was kind of sweet, though, which mollified me quite a bit I don t think I ll read the sequels, however There are so many other books I d rather have in my reading queue
