Detectives Mark Ruxsberg and Chris Green are very good at their jobs. Being the enforcers for God and Day’s notorious Atlanta PD Narcotics Task Force causes the crazy duo to get into more trouble than they can often get out of. The pair never misses out on an opportunity to drive their Lieutenants crazy with their dangerous, reckless, and costly stunts, landing them in the hot seat in front God… often.
Ruxs and Green love their jobs and they don’t mind the very demanding schedule that leaves them little time for socializing or dating. It was fine with them, they enjoyed hanging out with each other anyway.
However, most of the men in their close circle of friends and colleagues are pairing off and settling down. God has Day, Ro has Johnson, and their Sergeant Syn has Furious.
For the past several years, Ruxs has only sought out the advice and company of one person, his partner and best friend Green, and vice versa. Both of these alpha males are presumed straight, but neither can deny the heat that’s building in their once ‘just friends’ relationship.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating perspectives.
First – this cover <<fans self>>
There’s a lot of witty banter and comradery in all the Nothing Special books, but Rux & Green take it to a whole new level. While there are some serious subjects tackled including an addicted family member, death of a close friend, and abuse of a child dear to the entire department – Via equally kept me laughing with investigations that always seem to go sideways and the lighter side of a new depth to their relationship.
I love how Rux & Green each have episodes of needing to lean on the other and their supportive friendship easily transforms into romantic relationship. Via gives us a chance to really enjoy their time as a couple and the biggest challenges come when they unexpectedly (to them, the rest of us saw it coming) become parents to Curtis.
There’s some other fun surprises I don’t want to spoil. Ultimately this is one I’ve found enjoyable to listen to more than once. It’s hard not to look forward to Michaels’ story in Don’t Judge.
Aiden Snow continues to give a fantastic performance. Even with new characters being added, he gives them consistent voices/accents throughout and it makes it incredibly easy to binge this series.
