Waking up on a cold steel slab in the morgue with a toe tag firmly in place scares the beejesus out of Collin Phoenix. Being stark naked didn’t help matters either. To make the experience even more special Collin ends up fleeing the building wrapped in a bed sheet. Thank goodness he stumbles across a homeless shelter and a decent guy named Rutledge who gives Collin the means to get home.
The day’s been difficult enough, but nothing compares to going home only to discover his life partner hung over and waving his service revolver in Collin’s face. After three days of drowning his sorrow in alcohol, Det. Riojos Fernando figures he’s going nuts when Collin returns from the dead. Riojos held Collin in his arms as he died so it’s kind of hard to believe Collin’s back, so to speak.
Nothing is adding up for Collin and Riojos as they try to get answers as to what’s going on. The more they dig the more bad guys come after them. On top of dodging killers it seems that a Det. Tony Santano is looking for Collin’s body and his missing lover Riojos. Whatever is going on Collin and Riojos need answers before someone kills them permanently.
Intense drama, some morbid humor, and a major mystery surround the characters in Collin’s Awakening. This exciting new series barely takes a breath from one deadly scene to the next. Character development evolves along the way in the fast paced plot while secrets unravel and answers are hard to come by. Collin’s Awakening relies on sizzling hot sex, strong men, and an intriguing plot to keep readers interested, and it works perfectly.
