PI Jackson Rivers grew up on the mean streets of Del Paso Heights and he doesn't trust cops, even though he was one. When the man he thinks of as his brother is accused of killing a police officer in an obviously doctored crime, Jackson will move heaven and earth to keep Kaden and his family safe.
Defense attorney Ellery Cramer grew up with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth, but that hasn't stopped him from crushing on street-smart, swaggering Jackson Rivers for the past six years. But when Jackson asks for his help defending Kaden Cameron, Ellery is out of his depth and not just with guarded, prickly Jackson. Kaden wasn't just framed, he was framed by crooked cops, and the conspiracy goes higher than Ellery dares reach and deep into Jackson s troubled past.
Both men are soon enmeshed in the mystery of who killed the cop in the minimart, and engaged in a race against time to clear Kaden's name. But when the mystery is solved and the bullets stop flying, they'll have to deal with their personal complications and an attraction that's spiraled out of control.

"I'm a fan but..."
I managed to finish this book. Amy Lane books have been pleasure reads for me until this one. There were elements of this story that kept touching a raw nerve. However, the threads of family and loyalty and support of loved ones ran deep and I loved those parts.
I know the narrator is used by Rhys Ford in the Cole McGinnis series. So, initially, I thought it was the reason I was expecting Cole to pop up on the scene. Then, I realized it wasn't the voice of the narrator but the story itself that read very much like a Rhys Ford book. Okay. It happens, right?
But what bothered me was the "white savior" theme of the book... Jackson, Ellery even Mike. *sigh* . Yes, there were bad white guys but in light of today's climate, it touched a nerve.
