Highest Bidder by Brenda Cothern

ICE Agent Ryan "Brew" Brewster finally regains the trust of vice cop Rick Kendry, after deceiving him on their undercover operation to bust the human traffickers who were selling gay man in the Tampa area, when that trust is threatened all over again.

The Russian mobsters strike back by abducting Rick and Brew is forced to go deeper undercover than ever before into the Russian Mafiya if he wants to rescue his lover before Rick is sold to the highest bidder as a sex slave.

But will the man Brew rescues be the same man who stole his heart on their last undercover operation?

Now everything that I didn’t like in the first book was corrected in this one.  We were able to see what Brew was really up too and we also was thrown into the trafficking world.  With the Russian Mafia making a huge present in this book, we finally got the intensity that I wished for before.  Rick was reluctant to listen to Brew and his motives for what he did, but once he “listened” in the way only Rick and Brew communicate about the huge issues, in the playroom, he understood and they were back together again, for a bit.
When Rick finds himself in a dangerous situation because of the ties Brew has with the Russians, Brew is forced to find his partner and save him.  While in the situation Rick is forced to accept that there are parts of his personality that he doesn’t understand but has to believe is real.  Could he really be aroused by pain?  Shouldn’t he be offended and turned off by what they are doing to him?  How is he going to explain this not only to himself but to Brew, if he ever sees him again? 
After the edge of your seat action we are able to see how Rick handles his new discoveries, while we watch Brew try to heal him.  With other friends like Jojo and Joel trying to help, all of the softness and support is driving Rick crazy.  It comes to the point only Brew knows what he needs. 
I found myself much more invested in book two and because of that I believe this needs is a series worth recommending.  If you can deal with an M/M book, you will enjoy watching Brew and Rick develop a relationship that most won’t understand but you just know it works.  The drama and action was great for me in book two and I had a hard time putting it down.  Make sure you get your copy of this series.
