The latest of the Uniform Encounters Series is Guarded Desires and this novel has a hot and beautiful Guardsman, a rough around the edges DEA agent and a very dangerous Mexican Drug Cartel. Whose going to make it out alive? Stephen Morris, is an agent from the DEA office who has quite comfortably created a nice relaxing life for himself. Normalcy is very important to Stephen and he spends his time relaxing at home. His partner from the agency is Rigo who with his family spends a lot of time with Stephen. He is assigned to the border crossing in Arizona so this assignment keeps him very busy and not much time to dwell on his non-existing love life. He is ready to find that special guy to fall in love with and share his life. Guardsman, Joseph Pirelli the 22-year old is on duty for the border patrol and assist the DEA!
The drug cartel, Vasquez is a very vicious crime organization that is waging war against the innocent civilians on both side of the border. Now Joseph and Stephen are working together to bring down this cartel but Josephs past might be revealed. Joseph is really into Stephen, even with their age differences but has a hard time trusting people due to his tormented past. Stephen is ready to find love again, with that special someone and could it be Joseph. They will definitely have many things to work out in order to be together.
Morticia has done it again with a beautifully and very detailed novel in her Uniform Encounters series. What I love about her stories is the amazing characters that she creates and the conflicts that she puts these men through. Her writing is brilliant and how she describes Stephens abusive past was hard to read but at the same time it gave us a glimpse into what he has gone through and why it is so difficult for him to trust other men. Her knowledge of the crime and DEA world is quite fascinating and I loved reading about it. The great connection between these men was so hot to read. Will Stephen and Joseph end up together? Better question, will they survive the war against the vicious cartel? I highly recommend this novel by Morticia Knight to anyone who wants to read about love, hot men, crime world, acceptance and unconditional love than Guarded Desires is the book for you.
She is currently working on the Gin & Jazz series about the glitz and glamour of 1920’s Hollywood – with more naughtiness to follow in 2014
