Getting It Right (Restoration #1) by A.M. Arthur

 Detective Nathan Wolf might just be a junior detective, but he tackles every case with the passion that he lacks in his personal life. A series of failed relationships with women has left him still single at thirty-four—because he's too scared to admit to his longtime crush on his best friend James.

Dr. James Taggert likes to keep his profession as a psychiatrist separate from his party-animal persona. Known around the gay clubs as Tag, he's the guy who screws them, leaves them, and never looks back. But James's drinking is getting heavier, and when bad memories from the past resurface, he's close to becoming the worst version of himself.

After a drunken blackout ends in a hot and heavy make-out session with his very straight best friend, James has no memory of the steamy affair. But Nathan isn't sorry for the kisses that James can't remember. Nathan finally musters the courage to tell James how he really feels, but a life-altering event might force them apart before they can ever be together.
This started out so great; you really felt James’s pain, suffering and struggles he’s going through.  The release of the guy that killed his sister the drinking issue that has been brought to light and lose of friendship, the way he dealt with the trying to get that friendship back never giving up. And Nate, finally figuring out his feeling only to be rejected, and the issue’s that caused, personally as well as job related. The way they both over came and made a relationship work.  All while dealing with the friends around them and the issues they had. This all made for a brilliant and well written story. And all the while trying to find a killer, the problem is once we found the killer, which was at the very end of the book, it was all rushed. We never really found out why? Nor did we find out a couple of other questions I felt needed answering. Not sure if we have a book two in the works, and honestly, I really didn’t feel that much of a connection to any of the characters to bother actively looking for one. So I guess my questions will go unanswered.
