Product Review (submitted on August 5, 2014):
First off, a word of caution: This was a murder mystery/FBI profiler case first, M/M romance second. I warn you because I usually shy away from those type of M/M books myself because they usually fail to hold my interest. It's all about the M/M romance for me. But High Concept had a fantastic plot and a very satisfying romance to go along with it.
MC Detective Beck Stryker is recently back to work after suffering the loss of his police officer partner, Dan, and a debilitating gunshot wound to his shoulder. He is carrying around some major survivor's guilt and is constantly checking up on his partner's wife and her 2 young sons.
MC FBI Profiler Dr. Zach Littman has healed physically from an interview-gone-bad with a prison inmate 18 months earlier but still carries deep psychological scars from the incident. He has recently broken up with a long term boyfriend and feels incredible guilt over the disillusion of that relationship, even though he has no desire to get back together with him.
So, two seriously fucked up MCs, paired together to solve a crime. One thing leads to another, and they wind up in bed together. *grin* It's a delicious roller coaster ride of mystery, suspense, lust, sex, and emotion from there.
I can absolutely recommend High Concept to any and all lovers of police/FBI drama, mystery/suspense, hot, damaged boys finding each other and lovers of great M/M romance.
I'm so glad I didn't wait for more reviews and trusted my gut on this one because it was totally worth the $8 sticker price. *dreamy sigh*
