Publisher's Summary

A Cole McGinnis Mystery
From the moment former LAPD detective Bobby Dawson spots Ichiro Tokugawa, he knows the man is trouble. And not just because the much younger Japanese inker is hot, complicated, and pushes every one of Bobby's buttons. No, Ichi is trouble because he's Cole McGinnis' younger brother and off-limits in every possible way. And Bobby knows that even before Cole threatens to kill him for looking Ichi's way. But despite his gut telling him Ichi is bad news, Bobby can't stop looking...or wanting.
Ichi was never one to play by the rules. Growing up in Japan as his father's heir, he'd been bound by every rule imaginable until he had enough and walked away from everything to become his own man. Los Angeles was supposed to be a brief pitstop before he moved on, but after connecting with his American half brothers, it looks like a good city to call home for a while--if it weren't for Bobby Dawson.
Bobby is definitely a love-them-and-leave-them type, a philosophy with which Ichi wholeheartedly agrees. Family was as much of a relationship as Ichi was looking for, but something about the gruff and handsome Bobby Dawson makes him want more.
Much, much more.

A lovely side addition to the McGinnis storyline

This book is Bobby and Ichiro's story and runs (mostly) alongside the previous book in the McGinnis series, essentially covering what Bobby & Ichi were doing/ how their relationship developed while Cole did his usual thing of trying to avoid being killed by everone around him.
I have to say that I love Bobby's character and finding out what was behind his attitude to sex was enlightening while at the same time a little sad, too. Claudia was brilliant in setting Bobby & Cole to righrs; Mike was a bit of a knob but hopefully has come around to the idea of Bobby & Ichi together; & when Bobby's son Jamie saw Ichi for the first time - that was traumatic for him and well done. And the way it ended...well. Brilliant, but oh, my God! Good job I've got the next book already.
Greg Tremblay's narration was excellent and brought the characters to life, not just in the funny/ sexy parts but also in the emotional /painful parts when everything seems to be going to hell and Bobby & Ichi just put themselves out there, hearts on their sleeves, and decided to give it a go - that really came through very well.
When I finished listening to this I had that warm feeling of satisfaction you get when you've read/ listened to a book and it's like you've just had an excellent meal, or a fantastic day out. The, 'that was great, let's do it again tomorrow', feeling.
I am very happy I bought this book.

What would have made Down and Dirty better?

I liked the first 5 stories in the series - so this is a bit of a disappointment.
The story doesn't work as a stand alone as it relies on the back-story provided in the other books. Also the characters are entirely unconvincing and 1 dimensional; the "meanwhile" plot is too thin and the loose-ends tied up too quickly in a ready-mix romance book fashion without any originality.
The narration as with the other books however is excellent. ,

Would you ever listen to anything by Rhys Ford again?

I will listen to book 6 to finish the series.
