Vice cop Brandon Carr has just been
assigned to the task force trying to track down the Asian
gang responsible for shooting a Vietnamese teenager. Brandon
is stoked to be on the task force. He loves being a cop.
Brandonís boyfriend, Nevada Gaming Control Agent Nicholas
OíMalley, just arrived for a visit, and because of his Goth
look and the fact that heís computer savvy, has gotten
involved in the case. Brandon likes the idea of Nicky being
around longer than planned, but Nickyís involvement on the
case threatens Brandonís HET status when the guys start
making remarks about Nicky being gay. Brandon is also
worried about Nicky getting hurt. Heís been down that road
before and never wants to go back. Nicky is out and proud,
but Brandon is so far in the closet, he smells like
mothballs, as Nicky puts it. Brandon and Nicky were made
for each other, but will Brandonís fears tear them apart?
Inland Empire is the best of the best. That
is, if you like alluring guys who enjoy bondage and deal
with the scum of the earth on daily basis. Brandon and Nicky
can make anything sexy. They put the Ďhotí in hot sex. James
Buchanan pens a sex scene in Inland Empire
where the dialog and action is something right out of a porn
movie, but it comes off as really hot instead of cheesy.
Itís incredible. It fits Brandon and Nicky perfectly.
Inland Empireís storyline is a mix of angsty
romance, kinky sex, and action-packed police investigations.
The dirty underbelly of crime slithers around them as
Brandonís fear of coming out increases while he and Nicky
try to work through the obstacles in their way. Inland
Empire rocked my world and the ending blew my mind.
In the history of great endings, Inland Empire
has the best.
