As an undercover DEA agent, Dorian Michael James's life was all about intrigue. As president of the Dirty Dozen Motorcycle Club, it was all about danger. But everything he has worked for goes up in flames when he discovers a man tied up in the trunk of a drug dealer's car. With no other choice, Dorian throws away all his hard work and rescues the frightened man. But leaving Artie behind might not be possible, especially when the drug cartel Dorian is investigating thinks the man knows something. When saving Artie becomes more important than busting the bad guys, Dorian calls in some help from some old friends.
Artie Mills's life was hard enough without being sold to a drug dealer by his jerk of a stepfather. He wasn't sure if meeting the gorgeous Dorian James was going to make it better or worse, but he damn sure wanted to find out. When someone close betrays them, not even Dorian's friends can protect him. Artie has to decide if he's going to continue to be a victim or prove to everyone that he's not a Little Bit of Nothing.
When Dorian finds an innocent in the middle of a gun deal will he blow his cover to protect him? In Little Bit of Nothing the eighth installment of Stormy Glenn’s Cade Creek series, Dorian’s honor is put to the test. He is already in a precarious position and finding Artie in the trunk of the car isn’t helping. But even when someone appears to be bad, Ms. Glenn has a trick up her sleeve. Dorian isn’t all that he appears but it is becoming obvious that he is becoming burned out. Will he be able to continue the charade without getting him or anyone else killed. I really enjoyed getting to know Dorian. We met him previously but with the focus on him, we see just how precarious his life is. I loved that even as he appeared to be an awful man, his character and honor still managed to shine through. And as he fell in love with Artie the choices he was left with became slimmer and less palatable. And Artie was given a raw deal. He is sold and the quality of the life he has left isn’t looking too good. That is until he meets Dorian. But can Artie accept what falling in love with Dorian will mean? This story was a wonderful addition to this series. Ms. Glenn gave us two men who needed each other in ways that were unexpected. Finding time to fall in love is at a premium and maintaining a safe environment is even harder to come by. But Ms. Glenn found a way for Dorian and Artie to learn how much they needed and loved each other. This is a wonderful addition to this series and I enjoyed seeing how Ms. Glenn extracted these two characters from the stickiness that has become their lives.
