Seasons change, and so do fashion trends. But in this heartstring-tugging PsyCop short, what's beneath the clothes matters most.
Do clothes make the man? Jacob Marks cuts an impressive figure in his tailored suits, but Victor Bayne is another story. Nowadays, Vic does his ghosthunting in off-the-rack blazers, polyester blend slacks and cop shoes with nonskid soles. But back before he was a PsyCop - or even officially psychic - he rocked combat boots and a beat up biker jacket, and lots and lots of punk T-shirts. When he finds a faded tee in the back of a drawer, he's eager to lob it in the trash. Jacob, however, finds himself waxing sentimental about Vic's younger, more carefree days.
This steamy 5000-word PsyCop short in Jacob's voice takes place after PsyCop #6, GhosTV.

This short story gives us a glimpse into Jacob and Vic's everyday life and a rare hint of Vic's past. No ghosts or mystery to solve, but the chemistry between these two guys continues to sizzle.
Told from Jacob's POV, it gives us a different perspective on their relationship and shows us a typical Saturday within the house they share.
Gomez Pugh's narration is superb as always and his deep husky voice for Jacob is sensual.
As a huge fan of the Psycop series, this short story was a little side step from the usual full on spooky goings on. It is a little vignette from the POV of Jacob Marks, MC Victor Bayne's partner.
Vic finds an old T-shirt in a drawer that reminds him of his youth, the description of a leather clad, willowy young man in the midst of a mosh pit sends Jacob's thoughts to sex and sentimentality.
I loved hearing Jacob's POV for a change. I adore Gomez Pugh's deep seductive 'Jacob' voice' and found myself listening to this short with a goofy smile on my face.
I would recommend this to any fans of the PsyCop series. It's a shorter audiobook, but the story is fantastic and the narration is incredibly well done.
Any of the other PsyCop novels.
He captures these tiny nuances of Jacob's character. Audio book narrators should have a calm, soothing voice, but not so bland that they put you to sleep. But they should also have character, and Gomez absolutely nails it.
Probably Vic. I feel like we'd get along pretty well.
I will listen to anything read by Gomez Pugh, his narration is really excellent!
This was an adorable... and hot short for my two favorite men. I love that we get to see a tiny bit of Jacob and Vic outside of crime and spirits and what their life is like when things are normal.
Plus, it was nice to get to see a bit of things from Jacob's POV for once.
As usual, Gomez did a great job with the narrating too.
I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Inked Rainbow Reads.
"It's only a sexual encounter"
Aweful, it's only a sexual encounter, almost no story. Just the art of falacio. No different than any other book in the series, don't waste your memory net buy the full book.
"Jacob's view - my favorite short!"
I think this is my favorite of all the little side stories. It is an amazingly sweet look at Vic through Jacob's eyes and it just GLOWS with his ardor. He loves Vic so, so much. Fascinating and so touching.
Gomez does such a nice job of showing us Jacob’s low key enthusiasm for his man here. It really made me want to cry, I was so touched.
I’m really glad that Jordan has said Gomez is going to do the entire “Briefs” in audio format so we can hear them all!
(I just love the lighting on this cover. It really captures that warm feeling this story evokes. Well done, all around.)
6 of 5 stars
Just a quick peek frim Jacob's point of view, but worth it. I think these two are my favorite book couple!
It was nice to hear (can't think of the guy's name) point of view. Gomez does a wonderful job of differentiating the voices.
