    ”I’m fucking whoever the hell you are, ‘cause you’re all the same to me…And you can consider yourself fucking Lucky.” Damn it all to hell. I wanted to say a lot of vulgar and trashy things right now, because I held off reading this book in fear of not liking what was to come. I mean, Lucky and Bo had a pretty nice ending previously, and now there’s trouble in paradise? So yes, I was stepping on eggshells deciding if I wanted to read this, or plug fingers into my ears while shouting, “lalalalala” ”I’m fucking whoever the hell you are, ‘cause you’re all the same to me…And you can consider yourself fucking Lucky.” Damn it all to hell. I wanted to say a lot of vulgar and trashy things right now, because I held off reading this book in fear of not liking what was to come. I mean, Lucky and Bo had a pretty nice ending previously, and now there’s trouble in paradise? So yes, I was stepping on eggshells deciding if I wanted to read this, or plug fingers into my ears while shouting, “lalalalala” to drown out my consciousness. But I couldn’t fight off the sexy half naked devil wearing assless chaps, who sits on my shoulder. And now with images of motorcycles to boot! So I am very surprised that this series isn’t more popular. I think it’s the premise of dealing with real life pharmaceuticals that throws people off. For me, it was the opposite. As a pharmacist myself, the book blurb was like waving bacon to a starving southern man. While the plot of drug diversion is important in the series, I always felt the books were more character driven. If you’ve made it this far into the series, then all I can say is this: if you’ve liked/loved Lucky and Bo up to this point, then Corruption won’t disappoint. The story is told from Lucky’s perspective, and boy does he make me want to get naked sometimes! He continues to have that bad-boy attitude laced with enough sarcasm and smarts to make you snicker and at inappropriate times (and isn’t it cute how he has to stand on tip toes to kiss Bo on the lips?). What I liked best about Corruption was its exploration of Lucky’s hesitance to bring his relationship to the next step with Bo. While many M/M stories tend to have one of the MCs hesitate due to their own insecurities of love (i.e. “do I really love him?”), Eden Winters makes it clear that Lucky will always love Bo. He just has problems communicating with words, and the goals that Bo wants in life were things that Lucky never dreamed possible. So yes, there’s a lot of self-exploration in this book. And Bo has to go undercover where new demons (or old, depending on how you see it) surface as he battles with his dissociative state of mind. But in the midst of all this introspective exploring, that doesn’t mean we don’t have action going on. There’s a supplier of bath salts known as Corruption that needs to be found, while new plot twist makes it clear that the series does not end with this book. The book can be emotionally painful at times, but I find myself loving Lucky and Bo even more (is that possible?). By the end, I can see some pretty bad things looming across the horizon, but these two have never been closer than ever before. I will be waiting with much anticipation for the next book!

    I’m seriously getting addicted to this series staring Lucky, the ultimate but so lovable asshole and the sweet and smart Bo, two unusual Narc agents with lots of baggage from their past.

The author left us at the end of Collusion with Lucky finally saying the L word **gasp** but still weary of commitment. Lucky and Bo decided it was best to hide their love affair to all their Narc colleagues but keep privately diving into their relationship at a very different pacing. Where Lucky pays more attention to his food habits, cleans up his place, gets fond of the luck statue Bo offered him and agrees to spend more nights at Bo’s place **yeah, he is that in love**, Bo dreams about losing condoms, buying a house and raising kids **yeah, very different scale**. Bo may be a very patient man, not sure he won’t throw the towel though. And Lucky is at loss about what to do. And the new mission Bo is assigned to is not helping. After spending some time in undercover training, showing that Lucky’s mentorship is no more needed, Bo has a new assignment : infiltrating as “Cy” a biker gang selling “Corruption”, a new drug creating havoc in the streets and to discover who the suppliers are. Meanwhile, Lucky has to stay in Atlanta where he is promoted to train “newbies”. However, the mission takes an unexpected turn and Lucky is being sent to help Bo. After so many months of separation, how Bo will welcome Lucky ? And will Bo still be Bo or get consumed by his personae Cy, the hot-as-fuck outlaw biker ? I so love the way the relationship develops and how Lucky deals with having Bo in his life (as well as having “Cat Lucky” in his life…such a funny parallelism). All the past circumstances have made of Lucky an asshole and a nightmare in socializing but deep down, he’s reliable and thoughtful. And, OMG, when these guys can find a few moments to enjoy themselves, it’s scorching hot. But what left me breathless in this instalment : the twist at the end of this mission. Trouble in “paradise” guaranteed. I need to get my hands on the next book…like yesterday !!! Fan-girling in the air…

(well, at least 1 more from what I've heard!))  The characters are fun (well, Lucky is fun, Bo is HOT...and loving...and vulnerable...*sigh*) and the storylines are always engaging and have me suckered in.  This one was no exception. Bo is sent to train and eventually go deep undercover in a drug ring.  A la Zane (Cut & Run) during his Miami days, it's a dark place and time for Bo...and he's gone for awhile.  This leaves Lucky home, worried, stressed.  Just as the "I love you"s had been exchanged, they're separated.  I, too, was home worried, stressed.  Bo...well, I just don't trust that he can take care of himself without Lucky at his back.  But apparently, we don't know all there is to know about Bo. Book 3 is, for me, the best of the bunch to date.  The undercover story is great.  But even better is the growth, the uncertainty, the insecurity, and the strengthening of Lucky and Bo's relationship.  They face a lot of questions and doubt and eventually come out stronger in the end because of it all.  I love Lucky's quirkiness, which is borderline insanity in this book, but still so endearing.  And Bo really shines in this book...stepping out of his boring straight-man role. I wish for more people to be reading this series. It's not the kind that I think will totally knock anyone's socks off, but it's one of those solid, entertaining, glad-I'm-reading-it series and I'd love for you all to give it a go...

Anyone who has followed and enjoyed the series should like Corruption as well. Thanks a million to Mandy who selflessly searched for and found my vision of Bo! THANK YOU, MANDY! :D Also for you cat people, Cat Lucky was pretty darn cool too.

    I set out to write a stand alone novel three years ago, and yet Diversion has now spawned a series, being followed by Collusion and now Corruption. Bad boy Lucky has grown on me, but in this installment, he just might be eclipsed by his mild-mannered partner. I'm a big fan of motorcycles, and relived my own youth in writing the riding scenes.

Like I said in the review for the ebook version, I really wish we had Bo's POV for this installment given he was the one undercover (maybe a novella at some point, please, Eden?) but hearing Lucky's distress at the danger Bo was constantly in, at not being constantly in contact, really developed the character. Cracked that shell right open so we could see the creamy nougat center. Can't wait to start the next one...but I may hold off because I need to have the audio for all of them and I hate to have too big a gap waiting for #5-7!

    Amazing! This one really pack a punch. Three books in and I find myself more invested than ever with Lucky and Bo. They are solid now, yet Lucky can be an arse about commitment and his inaction might just drive Bo away, Bo who lay himself bare and told Lucky what he wants for a future. Lucky deserve a few tight slap for hurting our dear Bo. This suspense kick up a few notch this time with Bo going undercover into a biker gang as Cyrus Cooper. Damn, never knew Bo's alter ego can be such a hot MF. Amazing! This one really pack a punch. Three books in and I find myself more invested than ever with Lucky and Bo.

Before long, Lucky get to join in the action too and with them both together, they are such a force to be reckoned with. I can't wait to dive into the next book to see her how things unravel.

    4.5 hearts Finally! FINALLY! Not the big finally I was hoping for but still... *happy, dreamy sigh of relief* ...finally. Alright, Bo and Lucky are back for another fast moving and suspenseful case. Not only are they sexy as hell, (cause, oh, they so are), but I also get really into the suspense part of this series and Corruption had my favorite suspense plot so far. Let me start with this: Bo is just effing hot. He's undercover and he's here to prove that he's just as badass as the rest of 'em. And 4.5 hearts Finally! FINALLY!

Not only are they sexy as hell, (cause, oh, they so are), but I also get really into the suspense part of this series and Corruption had my favorite suspense plot so far. Let me start with this: Bo is just effing hot. He's undercover and he's here to prove that he's just as badass as the rest of 'em. And it was. Way. Hot. What happens when Bo goes undercover? That's right, he has to go bye-bye for a while. Lucky isn't too keen on this, and he doesn't like that it bothers him so much. It might mean that he has *gasp* serious feelings for Bo. But, gah, who the hell wouldn't? He's damn sexy and puts up with Lucky and his crap. Lucky had better wake the heck up! (this is where all my 'finallys' are coming in) And he (mostly) does wake up. Finally! Lucky and Bo make a lot of progress in their relationship, and I for one could not have been happier with where they are now and where they're headed. It took three books, but it feels real and genuine to their characters. They're so great together and Lucky is finally realizing it! Not only are they great together relationship-wise (getting there at least), but these boys know how to have some serious sex. Here's a taste of how they play... So, the boys are doing some undercover training classes and they're practicing how to pick up a prostitute. Well, Bo and Lucky decide to do some of their own, ahem, practice outside of the class... which may have involved some role playing... *grunts* damn... Bo is just effing hot. The suspense/case plot was so awesome. Both guys are undercover and both totally kick ass. They played their characters so well. So well that they kind of melded into one with their undercover identity. I think being in this together brought them closer and helped them reach this point in their relationship. It kind of helped them open up more, especially for Lucky. And undercover Bo mixed with real life Bo? Unf. Bo is just effing hot. Corruption is by far my favorite in the series. It had it all for me... the perfect romance, fantastic plot, witty dialogue and Bo. And the moral of this review is... Bo is just effing hot. More! Gimme MORE! *grabby hands*

    These two men continue to be an interesting, hot, and unique couple.

Lucky opens this book in a very unsettled frame of mind, both more in love with Bo than ever and at the same time fighting hard against anything that smacks of commitment. Bo, meanwhile, is ramping up his commitments, both to his job as a law-enforcement agent, and in his relationship with Lucky. This puts them at odds, and generates a lot of heated conflict. At times, Lucky's reactions are smack-to-the-head annoying, but they fit with his larger than life persona. There is some good humor in this series, with quotable lines. I enjoyed Bo in this one - just when I was thinking he was too good to be true, some of the quirks and fractures in him came out to play. His talents undercover are not as benign as they might appear. He throws all of himself into becoming Cy, the drug-dealing biker, but putting Cy aside isn't nearly as easy. There is more relationship depth and development in this book, and some new facets of both men are revealed. In a couple of places the plot was a bit of a stretch, but I enjoy thriller-style stories and am willing to make some allowances. A personal twist for Lucky near the end makes it clear there will be a fourth book, which I will very happily read.

    Holy hell what a ride! I was hooked from the first book with these two men and the second book was a trip and a half but this one. This story has me a confirmed addict. Bo & Lucky are definitely a drug of choice for me and yes, all the drug references are intentional. If you're familiar with this series you probably figured it out right away.

If not it's because of what these men do for a living. Our MC's work for a drug enforcement agency referred to as the SNB as a result of some poor decisions made in life they get to take a walk on the wild side in the name of law enforcement and it does get wild at times. Corruption gives us a closer look at Bo a far more complex man than we've been shown before and some real eye openers for Lucky who is forced to take a deeper look at himself and the man he's come to consider his partner in all aspects of his life. This could all end here, but I really, really hope not and I hope the wait for what comes next won't be too long because I'm pretty sure that what comes next for Bo and Lucky is going to be even more intense than things have been so far. I just hope our boys can come through it in one piece and together. I like the way these two men are growing as individuals and as a couple. If what is hinted at in Corruption is a tease for the future, then sign me up for the trip.

They’re both great books. Get them, read them, and then come back to this one. The first thing I need to do is mention this cover. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a cover hotter than Bo draped over a motorcycle. While I have always enjoyed this series, I have had my problems with the romance between Bo and Lucky in the past. I’m probably not going to make any new friends by saying this, but I have never been a fan of Lucky. For most of this series I have been trying to figure out why Bo sticks around. Lucky is very entertaining and I enjoy reading about him, but he is not a person I would ever want to be in a relationship with. His emotional walls and feigned nonchalance are too much for me. Bo, on the other hand, is fantastic and I adore him. I was so excited when I saw that Bo was going to have his chance to step out of Lucky’s shadow and prove himself an equal in this book. It was even better than I expected. Bo not only stepped out of the shadows, he was amazing. He has always had a backbone, but he more often than not would bow down to Lucky. I loved seeing him stand his ground and demand the respect he has long deserved. It threw Lucky for a loop and I enjoyed every second of it. Bo was given the undercover assignment of going deep into a drug running biker gang. Lucky had to stand on the sidelines and watch the man he loves go it alone. He had every confidence in Bo’s abilities, but the total lack of control was enough to drive him crazy with worry. There were two things about this book which made it my favorite of the series. 1. The investigation itself was compelling. I really got into it in a way I haven’t in the past books. Bo had to transform into someone completely different from himself. He went from the mild-mannered, scholarly, overachiever, to a badass biker more than willing to take down anyone challenging his dominance. The stress and danger Bo was pushed into only added to my excitement over the investigation. 2. Seeing Lucky out of his element. Lucky has always held the reins in their relationship and Bo has respected the boundaries Lucky set. I had a hallelujah moment when Bo stood up for himself. Finally, Lucky was forced to take a long look at the amazing man he was at risk of losing if he didn’t starting giving a bit more. I felt I finally got to see a softer part of Lucky, and I was able to identify and connect with him. It was fantastic and I loved it. Corruption is a perfect mix of investigation, adventure, romance, and hot sex. I loved this book! Recommended

I just love his interpretation of Lucky, Bo and Walter and Johnson has a wonderful Texan twang. Great audio. ***Book Review*** 4.5 stars. Loved it, but hope Lucky pulls his head out of his a**e soon. Bo is worth so much more than Lucky is giving at present...and I'm really sorry it's taken me nearly 6 years to read this 😔. ***Audio Review*** Darcy Stark is the perfect narrator for this series, and Redemption has just come out on audio too.

It’s not that you won’t be able to keep up with this book if you haven’t but you’d miss the chance of getting to know Lucky and Bo; the significance of Achy Breaky Heart, why Lucky has such a hard time with affection or feelings really. So while the story in this book might stand on its own, Bo and Lucky don’t. At least not to the same extent. On a side note, I just looked the song up and I have to wonder at the miracle that Lucky is still alive, that none of his partners didn’t just break down and strangled the man. But I guess that miracles are miracles for a reason ;) Corruption can kind of be divided into two parts. The first part is where Bo gets undercover training – and not from Lucky, but from an actor. Well, a former NYPD cop as well, but Lucky decides to ignore that part. Lucky too is sent to these seminars, or classes if you will, ones he very reluctantly attends. He soon realises that not only does he see the results in Bo’s behaviour he also reluctantly starts to pay attention to what’s being taught. That maybe there is some value to what O’Donoghue is teaching after all. This part is also where we have the most interaction between our two men. Bo is trying to take them a step forward in their relationship and Lucky freaking out (as usual) about it. Nothing ever moves quickly with Lucky, we’re talking relationships and feelings here – when he’s on a case he never slows down for a second. Anyway, he’s careful, mulling things over, but he’s also scared and often oblivious (in an endearing way). I admire Bo’s patience dealing with Lucky, because often he’s ending up getting hurt or at the very least dented. There is a connection between them and I love to see them working on it, I believe in them because they feel real. It’s not perfect or flawless, but a bit messy with its ups and downs. I love you. Nothing's going to change that. But sometimes loving someone isn't enough. For the second part Bo is sent on an undercover assignment. A new drug, called Corruption, is hitting the streets and SNB together with some other agencies want to find the source of it and shut it down. It’s a long-term assignment and a dangerous one and for the duration there is no contact with any one he knows, including Lucky. When Bo’s handler and ends up in the hospital and their contact killed Lucky is sent in as a driver to assist Bo in the operation. Only when he gets there Bo is so far undercover that even Lucky has a hard time recognising him, making him wonder if those classes worked a little too good. The second part has a faster pace to it, it’s more intense, darker and grittier. No fuzzy feelings or talks about relationships. The focus is on getting intel without getting made, but more importantly getting out alive. Reading stories like these makes me appreciate the men and women doing these kinds of jobs, going undercover, risking their lives, never really being able to just be themselves for a while. In the interactions between Bo/Cy and Lucky you can see how much Bo is struggling, what it costs him to become Cy, losing bits of himself, a bit of that shine he’s always had. Darcy Stark was great, just like with the previous two books in this series. I especially liked his interpretations for Bo and Cy. The same yet not. It really came through in the narration, you heard and felt the difference. Felt Lucky’s worry over it. There’s just something about Darcy Stark and this series that just clicks for me. This book ends with a bit of a cliffhanger, not one that you’ll lose your mind over (for which I’m eternally grateful), but still one you need the answers to. I hope the wait for Manipulation isn’t too long. A copy of this book was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

    I love Bo. I have since Eden introduced him. This go around, Bo really steps up his game. He's not hiding in Lucky's shadow. He's growing as a character and his own man. Unfortunately, with growth comes change. And some of these changes made me want to cry. Lucky is so resistant to things that he is on the verge of watching it all walk away from him. Will Lucky finally figure it out? Will he let Bo walk off into the sunset without him? The third installment will answer those questions, but will als I love Bo. I have since Eden introduced him.

(It's okay to be jealous that I got to read it already. I would be, too.)

    *4,5 stars* Oh yes! So good! What a momentous decision for Lucky at the end. Not that we did't know he would go for what Bo offers, not that we aren't sure how much he loves that guy! But it took him so long to work his way through his feelings, to be sure, to look at himself and ask what he would want. Lucky is still full of insecurities, full of self doubt when it comes to understanding why Bo loves him. I loved the whole 'different shades of Bo' theme, and darn didn't I find badass Bo hot!

    4.5 stars ! Despite Lucky’s best efforts *except not really LOL*, he gets a little more open to caring about people every book. It’s scary for him, but loving Bo is changing him. He’s still an asshole, but he wants to be better, both for Bo and himself. And whoa, what a different side of Bo this was. It made me a little afraid for him, no kidding. But I loved the way that both Bo and Lucky turned to each other for support and strength when they needed it. Lucky still has trouble saying it but he 4.5 stars !

The crime and investigation was damn well done, tense and nail-biting. There were a few places that I was genuinely concerned that one of our guys might not make it. And now that it seems Lucky’s past is coming into his present, there’s no telling what might happen. I’m loving this series and Lucky and Bo are firmly in my favorites. Definitely looking forward to the next one. ❤️

Bo steps up big time in Corruption. He has always had the skills and now he cuts loose to show what he’s capable of. Of course this comes at a price. Lucky has always taken what he’s had with Bo for granted. He thinks they can continue on the path their on, kind of like friends with benefits. Even though he uttered those three words, he thinks it’s enough that he said them and life can go on. Bo, however, wants more. If Lucky can’t or won’t step up, maybe it’s time to take stock in their relationship. You can feel Bo’s slide into desperation, but you know that he’s been on his own for so long, there is no way he can stop it. Eden Winters did an amazing job with this book. Even though Bo is the big deal in this book, it’s still told from Lucky’s point of view. You can feel his longing and fear that he’s going to lose the most important person in his life. The tension he experiences when a voice from his past reaches out to him and the utter chill that courses through his body when he hears it. She doesn’t give all the answers in this book. I mean, really, you gotta leave us wanting more, right? (Yes, damn it, I want more and I want it NOW!) As a fan of the series, I’d like to point out that I get pulled in deeper and deeper each book. I anxiously await when Eden says to me, “Will, I’m working on Bo and Lucky!” That means I’m close to book Nirvana and will have my baby in my iPad again very soon. Haven’t started the series? I totally recommend it. Lady McNeill’s Review of Book One: http://mrsconditreadsbooks.com/index.... Lucky’s Review of Book Two: http://mrsconditreadsbooks.com/index....

    This series snuck up on me. The first was good, the second one was better. I LOVE Lucky. He's snarky and funny and so damn prickly and I love his relationship with Bo. Bo was a little boring in the first book but I really liked him in the second. And although the cases are interesting in the first two books, I don't find them very exciting. So the first two books were enjoyable but I really wasn’t rushing to read each installment. But this one, Dayum! Eden Winters really turned it up to eleven. This series snuck up on me.

The guys were hotter, the bad guys badder, and the case so much better. After finishing this book, I am now completely hooked. Bo has to go undercover as a biker in a motorcycle gang that is running a drug ring. These aren’t pharmaceutical drugs like in the previous books. These are street drugs called bath salts that cause the users to hallucinate and become dangerous. The bad guys are ruthless and add a sense of real danger to the story. As Bo goes deeper undercover, Lucky fears he might lose him to this new persona. The relationship between these two is what kept me coming back to this series and it just keeps getting better. The set up for the next book has left me impatiently waiting to see what’s to come. And Bo on a bike is just f’ing HOT!

    This one is harder to describe. It was PURE Lucky, but the undercover, the separation in connection with this undercover and that FUCKING annoying know-it-all O'Donoghue, took some of the enjoyment out of it for me. Also I am WAAAAAY worried about Bo! I liked the description of how he 'changed' to someone else for the assignment, but homegirl is not sure that homeboy is made for this kind of work... Also I LOVE soft-hearted, vegetarian, helpful Bo, I really don't want him to become more Cy or mor This one is harder to describe.

Also I LOVE soft-hearted, vegetarian, helpful Bo, I really don't want him to become more Cy or more like Lucky, since he is a FANTASTIC counterpoint to Lucky's more surly attitude. Lastly the sort of cliffy, bringing us to the next book is raising alarms... I WILL read the next one, but hope to Dog that it will not be too much drama. So all in all this book is a 3.60 or something like that. Not too bad, but definitely not my favourite in the series.

    In this third installment of the series, I'm nearly all the way to liking Lucky. He was less obnoxious and more just brittle/emotionally frail/guarded in this book which made him more likeable to me. Bo continues to be self actualized and aware in their relationship, giving and accepting in a way that doesn't equal doormat. I have high hopes for these two. While it seems like they may never have a chance to just exists together and see what happens (that jobby job is always in the way), I'm trus In this third installment of the series, I'm nearly all the way to liking Lucky.

While it seems like they may never have a chance to just exists together and see what happens (that jobby job is always in the way), I'm trusting that they could work it out if Lucky continues to evolve like he has. He's a little bit heartbreaking in how he both wants and fears the future Bo is looking for. 3.75 stars

    I am becoming addicted to these two. Each book is a little different in pacing and content. I like that. This one was an enjoyable surprise for me. There is more emphasis on their relationship, more sex, and a solid suspense plot. And Leather, motorcycles, dance clubs.... If you haven't come on board this series, it is worth looking at. In each book you learn more about the MC's and their relationship develops more and more. I highly recommend it for those who like cop/suspense plots.

    4+ stars Better than the second one, on par with the first book. The additional plus is Bo as Cy - hot as hell and with more depth than in the previous two novels. Oh, yes, and Lucky finally giving into the commitment. The suspense was nail-biting at times. The surprise came when a man from Lucky's past appeared on the scene. Ah, well, now comes the waiting... for Manipulation - the fourth installment.

    I can't get enough of this series. Already bought the next one, I just needed something lighter right now, but I'm gonna pick it up as soon as the dark cloud over my head leaves me alone.
