Meet the men in uniform. These are everyday men who put on a uniform and become our heroes. Through good times and bad, they are there to save the day, sacrificing more than most of us can imagine as they put their lives on hold in service to us.

Love doesn't wait until life is calm, and sometimes it's the pressure of the job that throws two men together. Under stress and demand, they find solace in each other, forming bonds that can't be ignored.

Follow our heroes as they fight not only for what is right and just, but also for their hearts and the men they love.

A Man in Uniform MM Bundle includes : Recruited by Brenda Cothern, The Last Easy Day by Whitley Gray, Love Undercover by E.M. Leya, Hand to Hand ( Wet Seals,1) by authors H.L. Holston and Eleanor Bruce, One More Time by Ethan Stone, and Training Buds by author Sara York. There is a little bit some something for everyone in this book. I am going to pick out a couple of my favorites to talk about in this review, but it was hard they are all great reads.
My first pick is Recruited by Brenda Cothern, this is a new to me author so I was very excited to read this story.
Officer Michael Knight he is getting teased and basically overly teased for his name. His fellow officers have found out he is gay and they are letting him know their displeasure. Lucky for Michael there is another better job coming up, because he is ready to smash some heads together and possibly end up in jail himself.
Detective Aaron Slade works drug vice and he needs Michael as his new partner. He sees the harassment Michael is enduring and he wants to help the man. But he is also attracted to him. Is it safe to be attracted to his partner?
These two bring the heat. They really have a great start to a story. I would like to see this one flushed out more into a full book because there is so much potential here for more. I love a story that brings passionate heat, and great story telling together. Two men who are tough as nails can make it work, in both their jobs and love.
My Next Pick is Love Under Cover by author E.M. Leya this is another new to me author. I love anthologies for that reason you can find amazing authors you might not have picked up before and get a taste for how they write.
In Love Under Cover we meet Curt who has had to infiltrate a tough biker gang. But when a fellow officer is caught can he protect the man, specially when it is a man he used to love?
Tony remembers being at the police academy with him. But he knows now he has to do what Curt says in order to stay alive. There is a lot of passionate danger in this book. I really think this one is a well thought out story and fast paced. It packs a punch for as short as it is. I would definitely read more from Ms. Leya in the future based on the love and connection in this story.
Over all I highly recommend this anthology, all the stories fit nothing seems to come out of left field which I particularly love. There is action, adventure, and lots of love. Also you might be like me and find a couple of new to you authors you would like to read more of in the future.
