Attached to the LAPD – Violent Crimes Unit, Jack Cannon heads a team who handles the worst sort of crimes. A tip about illegal drugs turns into a major bust of weapons, drugs, and more for the squad.  To celebrate Jack visits his gym and hooks up with one of the hottest men he’s ever met, Lucky.

The next assignment concerns criminal activity with a dirty cop and a known organized crime family.  The Natale family is known to deal in drugs, prostitution, and everything else illegal.  Jack is assigned to cover the brothers, Louis and Lucio.  At one quick glance Jack recognizes Lucio as the man he knows intimately as Lucky.

Jack doesn’t know what to do about Lucky/Lucio.  As he works surveillance on the Natale brothers he wonders how he could have been so wrong about Lucky.  It doesn’t seem real that Lucky could be a stone cold killer.  But Jack is first and always a cop so Lucky is going down, no matter what Jack feels for him.

Gritty and realistic, LAID is a strong cop drama with some down and dirty sexual encounters.  Layered, honest portrayals by the main characters are what make LAID truly entertaining.  The first half of the story is very enjoyable, but the second half is sometimes difficult to follow.  Some of the twists and turns are confusing which takes away from an otherwise solid story.  LAID has an authentic cop flavor, back room raunchy sex, and solid characters.  Even with a few potholes, LAID will hold you until the last page.
