Publisher’s blurb
There are good guys, bad guys, and then there’s Lucky.

Former drug trafficker Richmond “Lucky” Lucklighter flaunts his past like a badge of honor. He speaks his mind, doesn’t play nice, and flirts with disaster while working off his sentence with the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. If he can keep out of trouble a while longer he’ll be a free man–after he trains his replacement.

Textbook-quoting, by the book Bo Schollenberger is everything Lucky isn’t. Lucky slurps coffee, Bo lives caffeine free. Lucky worships bacon, Bo eats tofu. Lucky trusts no one, Bo calls suspects by first name. Yet when the chips are down on their shared case of breaking up a drug diversion ring, they may have more in common than they believe.

Two men. Close quarters. Friction results in heat. But Lucky scoffs at partnerships, no matter how thrilling the roller-coaster. Bo has two months to break down Lucky’s defenses… and seconds are ticking by.

Diversion by Eden Winters is the start of a great series by the same name. I liked her character development and humor that is sprinkled throughout this story.  
Lucky is a con.  He can usually smooth talk his way out of anything… that is until he gets caught and sent to prison.  But while most that would be the end of the story, it is just the beginning for Lucky.   True to his name he gets Lucky and gets a job that suits his particular talents.  He also gets partnered with the one man sure to keep him on the straight and narrow
Bo he does everything by the book. He is a health nut, quiet man who loves his job.  He gets nervous, and has a past that will make you weep.   He does his best to reform Lucky…Lucky does his best to corrupt Bo. Together they are an unstoppable team that really works.
The back stories on both men make them the men they are today.  There is sorrow, love and passion in this story.  I love a good story with heart and soul like this one.  I am looking forward to seeing how Ms. Eden makes this a series.  I would love to see Bo and Lucky again and see just where the relationship ends up.  I think these two were made for each other.  Bring on the Diversion stories.
