Cody Paige is an author with a newly-developed fear of being touched. When he becomes a suspect in his mother's murder--despite the fact she may be the victim of a serial killer--he hires PI Brent Harding to help prove his innocence.
Will Brent be able to help Cody discover the basis for his touch phobia? A necessity, as far as they are concerned, since they are attracted to each other. An attraction they won't be able to act upon if they can't even kiss without Cody suffering a panic attack.
This book intrigued me right from page one. Cody is such a sweet, loving and just wanting to be normal guy but he has a deep seeded fear of being touched. This phobia keeps him from having friends and being close to anyone and when his mother is killed it leaves him no choice but to hire a private detective to find the real killer.
Brent is a sexy, sweet and caring guy who once he meets Cody knows he's with this case to the end. Brent and Cody enjoy spending time and getting to know each other, of course Cody thinks at first it's just Brent doing his job but as they delve deeper into Cody's life and bring him out of his comfort zone the story really heats up. I loved these two characters, I loved their caring natures and their friendship. I loved how they reached for each other and needed each other. Very intriguing story and sexy too. Another amazing story by Edward Kendrick! 5 stars

Born and bred Cleveland, I earned a degree in technical theater, later switched to costuming, and headed to NYC. Finally seeing the futility of trying to become rich and famous in the Big Apple, I joined VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America), ending up in Chicago for three years. Then it was on to Denver where I put down roots and worked as a costume designer until just recently.
I began writing a few years ago after joining an on-line fanfic group. Two friends and I then started a group for writers where they may post any story they wish no matter the genre or content. Since then, for the last four years, I've been writing for publication. Most, but not all, of my work is m/m, either mildly erotic or purely 'romantic', and more often than not it involves a mystery or action/adventure.
