Men of Smithfield: Mark and Tony by L.B. Gregg

Coming home from work to find my boyfriend banging our hairy, married landlord--in our bed--was bad enough. Discovering Jamie had also cleaned out my bank accounts made it officially the worst day of my life. I think I can be forgiven for wanting revenge, even if a few little laws (and possibly Jamie's nose) got bent in the process.

Fortunately, the law is on my side in the form of my oldest friend, Tony Gervase. I've tried to deny my attraction to the sexy trooper for years. After all, he made it clear long ago that he wasn't interested in me that way. But if the hot encounter in his kitchen is any indication, he is now. At least the day is ending a whole lot better than it began...

But the morning after, the Jamie situation goes from bad to seriously messed up. The jerk's in more trouble than I could have imagined. And as it turns out, I don't know Tony as well as I thought I did either...

4.5/5 stars

I had this book sitting in my TBR pile for quite awhile now and just kept putting off reading it for some reason or another. Well, having gotten the chance to read it from Netgalley I decided the time was at hand and I'm so glad I did. From the opening paragraph I just knew this book was going to be a book to keep and reread many times. Mark comes home early and finds his boyfriend cheating and instead of confronting them then he holds it in until he can come to grips with it. Unfortunately when he does decide to confront the boyfriend its in front of God and everybody, literally. He then turns to Tony, his friend of many years, though they have been estranged for a few months. Tony tries his best to help Mark out of all the trouble he seems to have gotten himself involved in. This was a great story with humor, love and coming to terms with secrets. I look forward to reading the rest of the series and hope they all live up to the standard of this one.
