Nick O’Malley is an agent for the Nevada gaming commission. Brandon Carr is a vice detective. They meet at a goth convention. Nicky is goth all the way. Brandon is full of piercing and tattoos. They hit it off and spend the rest of the weekend in Nicky’s hotel room but Nicky lives in Las Vegas and Brandon lives in California.

Nicky works as a field agent but also in the lab sometimes. He’s doing the work ups on a few slot machines when he gets a call from a friend asking him to send him some of those parts. Not long after Nicky talks to him, he’s murdered. Pretty soon Nicky’s knee deep in possible Mafia connections, drug money and hired thugs.  Nicky’s got problems in his personal life too. His ex-boyfriend is sniffing around him again and he’s falling hard for Brandon who’s not out of the closet and doesn’t ever intend to be. Things are going to get worse before they get better for Nicky and Brandon.

Cheating Chance is a little dark sometimes, hot all the time and very exciting.  I love Nicky and Brandon. They’re sexy and fun and incredibly hot together. Cheating Chance is more than a great story with two all around great guys who have amazingly hot sex. It offers an education in casinos, the mechanics of slot machines and what it might be like to be a vice detective. It’s interesting, entertaining and very well written. I want more of Nicky and Brandon!

There is a scene with nonconsensual sex in Cheating Chance.
