Undercover cop Dan Hudson is framed for blackmail and kicked off the NOPD force. Enraged about that, and the fact that his lover refuses to stand by him, Dan moves to Denver, where he becomes Dirk Steele. He finds a job working for the Powells, who are pawnbrokers ... and fences.
When he proposes to them that he put together a team to steal on demand for the Powells’ less than legitimate clients, a deal is struck and the team is formed. The team consists of Maverick, a thief; Tripp, a street kid who shoplifts to survive; and Fey, another street kid who is an excellent pickpocket and petty thief.
Now the question becomes, will the team succeed? And, equally important, will the attraction between Dirk, who has sworn off love, and Maverick -- whose credo is only down and dirty sex -- grow into something more? Or will they remain just 'friends with benefits'?
Time will tell as the team takes on increasingly difficult jobs and a man from Dirk's past shows up who could possibly throw a monkey wrench into the works.
I absolutely loved this book. As of all Edward Kendrick's books it drags you in right from the start and holds you captive throughout. I loved the characters Especially Dan or Dirk as he is called now, he was betrayed by his department and lover and decides that instead of wallowing he will turn his life in a different direction and use what he learned as a cop and put it to good use (love that). Dirk is sexy, confident in his abilities and smart as hell. Maverick catches his eye right from the beginning, love him too. They are perfectly matched and Maverick is a smart as hell hotty. Tripp and Fey were just awesome, I love how Dirk took them from nothing and gave them hope, a life and love (like a family). This mismatched team were kick ass throughout, love the newcomers and of course Lucky. This book is so creatively written and unique, it's one of my favorites from Edward Kendrick. It sounds as if it could be a series (no real cliffhanger) but there is some things that could continue on in another book...just saying...lol 5 HUGE STARS
