[Release Day Blitz + Review] The Detective's Trust by K. Langston

Title: The Detective's Trust
Author: K. Langston
Series: Brothers in Blue #2
Release Date: December 29, 2016





trust; firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.

LAPD Detective Reid Cunningham is content to keep the pain of losing his best friend buried deep. Dedicated to his job, he doesn’t have time to feel.

Much less love.

But when the past comes knocking at his door, he has no choice but to face his deepest and darkest fear.

Cassidy Sky, his best friend’s little sister, needs his help. Reid promised to watch over her and keep her safe, but he never planned on giving her his heart.

Or his trust.

PLEASE NOTE: The author recommends reading The Officer’s Promise, an introduction to the Brothers in Blue, prior to reading the remaining five books of the series. The Detective's Trust is written from dual POV, with an HEA and no cheating.



Once we were inside, I moved to the bed closest to the door and began emptying my pockets on the nightstand while Cassidy snatched up her bag with a huff and went straight into the bathroom.
When she walked out a few moments later, I knew for sure God was punishing me.
“What the hell are you wearing?" I asked, my dick hardening against my zipper.
She looked down at her chest, a grin smarting that sassy mouth of hers. "A shirt."
One finger curled at the hem of my favorite Yankees shirt I’d had packed in my bag, the ball of her foot twisting in place while she licked her lips.
Teasing me.
Luring me to the edge of a very steep cliff.
I wanted to know what that finger tasted like. No doubt it tasted as sweet as she smelled.
Like goddamn candy.
The kind you have to suck the sour to get to the sweet.
Every part of me wanted to devour every inch of her. Not to mention how good she would look underneath me. The images funneled through my mind in quick succession, one after the other. The countless ways I could make her mine. But the guilt still remained. Nestled somewhere between want and need.
I wanted her, but she needed my help.
I promised Bodie.
Desire gnawed at my resolve, but I stayed rooted in place. Her dark eyes peeked up at me as she made her way over, determination heavy in her gaze. "You don't like my shirt?"
"It's mine," I growled.
"I know." She stopped in front of me, reaching for my hand and placing it between her legs. "And so is this." Standing on her tiptoes, her lips brushed my cheek, breath hot in my ear. "If you want it."
The heat of her pussy paired with the damp fabric between her legs snapped my pathetic control. Leaning down, I captured her lips, her pliant body sagging against mine. My promise to Bodie was washed away as her taste flooded my mouth, a hint of tequila mixed with lime and a pound of need that rivaled my own. There was no more pain, no more guilt.
Raising my other hand, I brought it to the back of her neck, gently grasping the strands of her soft, silky hair before giving them a hard tug. Her head fell back with a gasp, breaking our heated kiss, and my mouth descended on her neck with greed, my fingers stroking over her wet panties.
“I want to take you here and now,” I told her.
"Reid, please. I'm begging you."
"What do you want, Cassidy? And you better be very specific."
She moved her hand to my cock, stroking and squeezing me through the rough denim of my jeans. "This specific enough for you?"
Her words fell on a whisper, stripping away any remaining hope of ever escaping what I knew deep down had been inevitable all along.


5 Stars!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, anger, sadness, secrets, and heartbreak.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first:
The Officer's Promise (Brothers in Blue #1)

This is Cassidy and Reid’s story. Reid is a little broken after losing his best friend. He made a promise to him that he would watch over her and keep her safe. What happens when he has to fulfill that promise? Cassidy needs help when she goes to her brother’s best friend will she get the help she needs? Can she trust him? Will he ever trust her? Can these two figure out the danger before they give into the feeling and chemistry they have for each other?

I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.

5 Stars!

K. Langston is a fairly new author for me but boy did she grab me with the first book in this series, The Officer's Promise. Full of steam, passion and suspense, this series is off the a  killer start and I for one cannot wait to see where Langston takes us.

The Detective's Trust is the second book in the Brothers in Blue series. Standalone books surrounding six brothers, each in a different branch of law enforcement, this series is packed with heat, romance, and action with gripping storylines and edge of the seat twisted suspense that will keep you glued to your kindle long after the story is over. Much like the first, get ready to swoon and fall for another Cunningham.

He's the guy who has always held her heart, even if he didn't know it.
She is his best friend's little sister... completely and totally off limits.
He's always had feelings for her but they were never told.
Now she is in trouble and at his door. He will do anything to keep her safe.
Lines will be drawn. Boundaries will be crossed. Hearts will be on the line.

Reid and Cassidy are going to light up your e-reader and make you squirm in you seat. The heat that came from this book was intense. The chemistry between these two was undeniable and inescapable. Watching them give into their desires was captivating and seeing them open their hearts to love was beautiful.

I cannot wait for the next in this series. This is one I highly recommend.
