Wanting to prove he can do the job just as anyone else on the force, openly gay police offer Rick Miles risks his life to go under cover to catch a notorious drug lord.  With his mission unbeknownst to his commanding officers Rick’s only back up is his partner Graciela Cruz. Once his cover is set as one of Gareth ‘Hairy’ Carey’s henchmen, it is nearly blown by Carey’s ‘boy toy’ lover Billy Rose.

Developing an attraction to his ‘boss’’ sexy boy friend is the last thing Rick needs but Billy knows his sexual powers and he doesn’t hesitate to use them to get what he wants.  As Rick’s mission into the underworld deepens so does his connection to Billy and Rick finds that falling in love is a lot more dangerous than taking down viscous drug lords.

Miles to Go is great story! At first I didn’t know what to make of Billy but the more I read the more I felt for him.  I didn’t find Miles to Go to be a highly intense story, but it was very dramatic, especially where Billy was concerned. There were some surprises and unexpected moments but what surprised me the most was the depth of feelings between Billy and Rick. When I read the title of the book the first thing that came to mind was the poem written by Robert Frost. After reading this story and how Connie Bailey tied the poem into the conclusion of the story, what I always thought of as a sad poem was given a lighter tone.  Miles to Go is an enjoyable story that Ms. Bailey fans will love.
