After his lover is murdered, Sam moves across the country in the hopes of making a fresh start, and the new beat he is assigned to includes a little diner with a fry cook that he’s immediately drawn to, but Rey seems to have as many secrets and demons as he does. Great story of two men beaten down by life that find strength in each other to help them move on. The first part of the book is told from Sam’s point-of-view, as the new cop in town, then we switch to Rey’s point-of-view, with the last few chapters being a mixture of the two, and I really liked the way it was organized. Sam for the most part was laid-back and easy-going, definitely the calming influence in the relationship, but I liked that he a few dramatic outbursts to make him interesting. Both characters had a lot going on and a lot of complexity. The next book in this series is Color of Grace, about Rey’s ex, Schuyler (Sky).
