This was a pretty good start to the series. I love stories featuring guys in law in enforcement. This book’s title is interesting because none of the good stuff was done “The Easy Way”. They had to work to build trust and foundation to eventually get to the happy place.
Cort and Cam were likable in different ways. Cort was a wise ass who was prone to doing this his way, which seems to be an oxymoron if you are working in a team environment like the FBI.
Cam on the other hand, is doing his best to keep his life and family business afloat after the tragic death of his parents. Trust is in short supply since people are trying to use him all the time.
Two guys with trust issues meet and let their guard down for a few hours and a bond is forged. It was nice. My favorite part of this book was the games like 2 lies and 1 truth in order to get to know each other. Those ice breakers were sprinkled throughout the book and it added levity to their circumstances.
These guys also had great chemistry. I felt them together. They fit and I’m glad that Cort realized that Cam was worth fighting for. They were the missing piece in the other person’s life.
