There are good guys, bad guys, and then there’s Lucky.
Former drug trafficker Richmond “Lucky” Lucklighter flaunts his past like a badge of honor. He speaks his mind, doesn’t play nice, and flirts with disaster while working off his sentence with the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. If he can keep out of trouble a while longer he’ll be a free man–after he trains his replacement.
Textbook-quoting, by the book Bo Schollenberger is everything Lucky isn’t. Lucky slurps coffee, Bo lives caffeine free. Lucky worships bacon, Bo eats tofu. Lucky trusts no one, Bo calls suspects by first name. Yet when the chips are down on their shared case of breaking up a drug diversion ring, they may have more in common than they believe.
Two men. Close quarters. Friction results in heat. But Lucky scoffs at partnerships, no matter how thrilling the roller-coaster. Bo has two months to break down Lucky’s defenses… and seconds are ticking by.
Richmond “Lucky” Licklighter is a former drug trafficker who has a mixture of being proud of his past and still haunted by it. Lucky uses everything he has ever learned to his benefit his work with SNB. SNB is Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. He was recruited from his prison cell to finish his sentence working for them. Lucky is almost done with his eight-year term, and now he has to train his replacement. Lucky has an attitude about him. He rarely plays nice to those around him and does not fear death, which makes him, take chances others might not.
Bo Schollenberger is a former marine who went to school to be a pharmacist only to end up with a drug problem. While he has kicked the habit, he now has a mark on his permanent record that SNB will remove if he works for them. Bo is the opposite of Lucky in almost every way. He only eats healthy foods and avoids sugar. Bo has a big heart and gets personally involved with his targets.
The connection between Lucky and Bo is blistering. The sex scenes are hot. I loved how their personalities did not really change from the beginning of the book to the end. My biggest frustration is Lucky, he does not talk to Bo about his feelings.
Diversion is the first book in the Diversion series by Eden Winters. I found this book is very well written. The overall plot was very believable. The ending was not predictable. This book kept me on my toes all the way through. The main and secondary characters were appealing and interesting. Overall, this was a great book. I hope we get to see these characters again in the future.
