A perfect mix of love and crime.
A series Deputy Joe all my friends in the the crime-MM-romance girls gang , talked about last spring and summer. I relly liked the first book 1 - Hard Fall 4 stars You were all right ladies! An heartwarming and great sequel.. About a still rather fragile new love-relationship and a well-told police investigation, all happening up there in the Utah mountains.
What a fantastic setting.
His feelings and attraction for men was therefore hidden and partly neglected deep down in the 'gay-closet'. When a tourist falled off the mountain did Joe need help from this cliff climbing adrenaline junky to solve the crime case. So started also a steaming hot love story in the first book. Under an elk-hunt on hourses, up in the winter snowy mountains, happens Kabe to step on a frozen arm. There is a corpse under the snow. S and if something is happening on government or state land. In a small town like Panguitch in Utah Mormon land is it maybe even worse. Joe is so very brave. Although his church and some old 'friends' are turning their backs on him now, after Kabe, is he convinced that he has done absolutely the right thing.
Beyond the looks, and there was a good bit of looking that could be don on Kabe, he and I just meshed. Our souls got woven together somewhere up along the face of a cliff. I recognized how much I loved the mountains shining out of a set of eyes that stole from the forest for their color. Kabe may have been born and bred a city boy, but the wild wind flowed in his veins same as it did mine. Thoughts of one's own feelings, honesty, and to let in someone else very close. He makes mistakes and he is perhaps a kind of coward in some respects.
However, most often you later have to pay back, the hard way, for your mistakes. You learn!! Those surrounding circumstances, the Mormon culture impact, to actually be living in a sparsely populated very small community, and two men of such different backgrounds, age, upbringing, personal style etc just makes it that much better. Joe and Kabe could be two guys from different planets. Two different species, which both need and want each other so much - but have that huge male problem of communicating.
I only say: Talk more, please!! I look forward to pick up the third book 3 - Laying Ghosts. So far three novels and a short novella. Pics from Joe's town, Panguitch in Utah population 1.

But most of the times, I prefer strong voice of the narrators, where the love is real and intense but not bordering to sickly saccharine. That is what I get when I read James's books. This story is taken timeline about few months after Har 4. This story is taken timeline about few months after Hard Fall. Deputy Joe Peterson has been together with Kabe Varghese for four months. There are two significant plots in this book. One is the repercussion of Joe hooking up with Kabe.
He is facing an administrative law hearing regarding the violations of the prohibitions against Custodial Sexual Misconduct, which will result in his status of POST qualification. Second, a dead body of a missing teenager, first thought of as suicide only later investigation by Joe proves to be a rather different story. Joe has become my favorite character from James's stories.
His voice reaches out to me like a friend. I feel comfortable reading his narration about his feeling for Kabe, his job, his fears and worries, and his faith. When Joe "talk", I "listen" -- which is kinda funny considering that Joe is described as someone who don't talk much. But how can you stop from listening when his words are vividly real?
For example, he might not be romantic, he might not say "I love you" outright, but the way Joe describes his feeling for Kabe just knocks my chest, grabs my heart, and squeezes it tight. Among Mormons, when you got married, you stood in front of a dozen mirrors and looked into eternity with your chosen. From the hearing that brings a serious fight between Joe and Kabe -- Joe is being stupid, of course, trying to protect Kabe without thinking that Kabe wants to be equal in the relationship -- and the investigation towards the dead teenager which later on brings a climax worthy of a TV scene, which involving some serious car crash!
I cannot take my eyes off my Kindle. Sure, I might still get some issues regarding some technical terms here the words during the hearing just fly me by 'cause they're too "law" wordy :p. But I just power through it. I need to know what is going on. I need to know how it ends. Of course, James throws some HOT sex in between which lets us to see how silent Joe can be dominant Joe in private :p I wish James can write more books. View all 4 comments.

Whole new crime to solve and the problems seem to rack up as soon as they're cleared for Joe. Of course, blindsiding Kabe is never a good idea and the guys find a bit of review is necessary. But, hot diggity are they smoking--wicked hot. No one's quite like Joe, and both he and Kabe want to make this thing they've found work.
Work, work, work. Interesting solution to the mystery, swap out one problem for the next, push Kabe and Joe emotionally forward and Nice follow on to Joe and Kabe's story. Interesting solution to the mystery, swap out one problem for the next, push Kabe and Joe emotionally forward and expand on the circumstances surrounding them to embroider the edges--yeah, well done. Overall, solid romance with a side serving of crime solving. View all 35 comments. And I like Kabe. And I like almost everything about the series. It has a very high risk of addiction. But I loved Joe in the book 1 more.
Don't get me wrong-it is not a critic. It is my declaration of love. At the beginning there is something of the forbidden fruit - bitter and sweet at at the same time I know And HERE it was also good written. Excellent dialogues, beautiful thoughts. But I still wasn't able to understand the Kabe's reaction.
Maybe it is the reason why I couldn't like him as much as I liked him in the first book. But it is in the first place about Joe. And he was absolutely irresistible with his explanations. I can just be Joe, all the parts of Joe around you. And that was worth more than my church or my job to hold onto. I am not a fun of any BDSM relationship in my books. Though in spite of really really HOT sex scenes I found the presence of pain during sex not very appealing: I know, it's me, you'll find it probably very exciting. And from the other side, well, Kabe was happy, Joe was happy, I was happy reading the scene, so And now just ignore me.
To be in his head all the time is a great pleasure. Thanks GOD for sending them to me! View all 14 comments. Jun 04, Otila rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites-mm.
Spin Out (Deputy Joe, #2) by James Buchanan
Spin Out starts off a few months after the events of Hard Fall. Joe and Kabe are in a relationship which has several consequences for Joe. He has been excommunicated from the Mormon church, he's lost the respect of some of his community and he suffered some disciplinary action on his job for having sex with Kabe when he was a "person of interest" in Joe's case. All of which Joe has accepted because he's with a guy he can see a future with. The conflict in this book comes from the fact that Kabe i Spin Out starts off a few months after the events of Hard Fall.
The conflict in this book comes from the fact that Kabe is on probation and it's illegal in the state of Utah for a law enforcement officer to have sexual relations with a person in custody, which Kane's probation falls under. Something Joe knew but never told Kabe. Now Joe is being investigated for sexual misconduct and could possibly lose his job.
Kabe is subpoenaed to testify at Joe's hearing and Joe convinces him that it's no big deal. This leaves Kabe completely unprepared for the turn the questions take and is left feeling blindsided. Joe seriously can't understand why Kabe is so furious with him, after all he was trying to protect Kabe from worrying about things that are Joe's problems not his.
In between all this, Joe is trying to solve a murder. The case in this one is much more interesting than in the first book, but really not what's important.
What this story is really about is Joe learning to be in a real relationship. It's not enough to want to be with Kabe. He has to open up and let him into his life. He has to admit to himself that what he did to Kabe was wrong, and that it was more than trying to protect Kabe. It was about shutting him out, taking his trust but not giving any back.
His journey to that realization, after being a completely stubborn ass, is what's great to watch. I still love being in Joe's head. His dialect and just way of speaking makes him feel so real. He may act like a hick and talk like a hick, but Joe is not stupid. I also love the depth of his feelings for Kabe.
Kabe is difficult to read because we're never in his head but I understood his insecurities about himself and about being with someone like Joe.

I'm also really looking forward to seeing where their relationship goes from here. But I wanted to make sure he understood I got that this was our life-together. Thanks to Sofia for the BR!

Some people have found his colloquial country-boy tone annoying one reader on Amazon complained about all the 'typos' but I like it; it sounds right in my head.
About his relationship with Kabe, Joe says, "My heart decided to go and I didn't have much choice but to follow. This installment is just as good as the first one, and Kabe becomes a little more fleshed out as a character. View all 3 comments. Jun 04, Sofia rated it really liked it Shelves: favourites. Woohoo, just saying. One hell of a ride. I really loved this second part of the story. Being with Joe as he goes through the jumbled up mess, his life has become. Watching him make mistakes, owning up to them and doing something about them, that endorses him more to me.
After the first book, I knew this story was going into hurt territory and it did. The rest, are those whose snubs, snide comments are the paper cuts of everyday life, that cut you up and leave you bleeding. As we read along we come to know Joe and how he came to be. The writing is interspersed with memories, feelings which give us a feel of Joe's past and how he became to be the man he is. Nothing intrusive just interesting like when you are walking along with someone and you see something which reminds you of that delicious ice cream you had once and you mention it with a smile on your face.
I find Joe and Kabe beautiful together. On to the next one.

The guy who got all mesmerized the first time, and every other single time since, Kabe smiled at him?
Yes, that would be him. And, let me tell you, he takes his time learning too.
I kept going back and forth between shaking my head and chuckling for how clueless he was and wanting to smack him upside the head for the same reason. Spoiler-not-really-a-spoiler: Kabe got him one of those for Christmas. This book was a train wreck waiting to happen and the best thing was that Joe was so completely unaware of where he was headed, that he managed to make me unaware, at least to a certain degree and about different things, but still. I fully understood why view spoiler [Kabe was pissed hide spoiler ] though, which is more than you can tell about Joe. The most amusing thing?
He did learn in the end and, knowing Joe, I'm reasonably certain that he won't make the same mistake again. Last edited by Cameron; at PM. Would you go flip my truck back over?? Original Joes were just obscenely huge. Even on a Summit they looked too big. Hoping these are down in size along with the Shockwaves.
