Copping an Attitude by Morticia Knight


Vegas is filled with human cast-offs, yet officer Parker McLean sees something special in hustler Slade Wolfgang. Unfortunately, so does Slade’s pimp who wants to sell him overseas in the sex trade.

Hustler Slade Wolfgang has little choice over his fate. At the age of twenty, he’s had to survive any way he can since being thrown out of his home for being gay. As soon as he hit Vegas, Slade was lured into the hopeless world of prostitution where he’s become a virtual prisoner to his pimp, the ruthless Julio Estevez. His evil keeper has even threatened to sell Slade overseas as a sex slave.

It’s another typical night on the Strip when Parker comes across Slade. His heart breaks every time he sees someone so young being exploited. Something in Slade’s eyes tells Parker the young man might be in real trouble though—especially after the recent spate of sex worker killings from a rival prostitution ring.

The two men’s lives become intertwined when Slade is almost beaten to death. The danger grows, but so does the relationship between Parker and Slade. Parker helps Slade to heal from the horrific attack and their bond deepens. But the human traffickers are still out there—and they’re still looking for Slade.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence and a brief scene of sexual abuse.

Publisher's Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

Angie☆☆☆
Cop + sex worker = messy
When Parker tries to arrest Slade one night on patrol, his life is changed. Something about Slade makes Parker feel something he hasn’t in a long time and he honestly thinks Slade is in a bad situation and is being exploited. I thought the story line concept was good, but things seemed too rushed and at times too perfect. I loved the chemistry between Parker and Slade/Lonnie, but at times it seemed way too fast and I am one for instant love, but this was almost pushing it for me for some reason.

Characters: Well written
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: M/M Romance

This is the second in the series – and although the leads of book one are mentioned, it is more a nod than being essential for the story. That said, I really enjoyed All Fired Up, and would recommend you read it too.

This is an unusual pairing – the patrol cop and the man forced into prostitution – but it really does work. The trafficking plot has merit and there are some clever twists, and it adds to the romance very effectively. Parker is pretty enlightened, and smitten to take on the damaged Slade/Lonnie, but the chemistry is clearly undeniable. So many issues were dealt with in a sensitive and caring way, that the feelings between the two men seem to grow very naturally. I hope that we get to see more of them in future episodes. We get a number of possible characters introduced that might feature in the limelight in subsequent installments, which was enticing.

Thank you Ms. Knight for another fascinating tale.

Morticia Knight spends most of her nights writing about men loving men forever after.

If there happens to be some friendly bondage or floggings involved, she doesn’t begrudge her characters whatever their filthy little heart’s desire. Even though she’s been crafting her naughty tales for more years than she’d like to share – her adventures as a published author began in 2011.

Once upon a time she was the lead singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She currently resides on the northern Oregon coast and when she’s not fantasizing about hot men she takes walks along the ocean and annoys the local Karaoke bar patrons.
