    The first 5 chapters of this book HAD ME HOOKED I was floored by what an exciting and smart story was being laid out before me Diversionwell, the best way to describe it w o getting overly detailed is to say it s about an organization that takes down pharmaceutical crime And the players involved are some really fascinating characters.Lucky is a self serving bad guy turned good guy who s paying time for a crime by working for the Department of Diversion Prevention and Control Think thief who gets [...]

    I love discovering an author new to me, I love when there s some suspense, I love age gap and I love a grumpy MC who plays the lonely wolf but can t stop melting for his new partner No choice but to really enjoy this book, especially when pushed to read it by Natalie, Ren e, Simone, Karen and Heather yes, I was doomed from the start.Lucky is not the usual Narcotics agent he got his jail sentence for drug trafficking commuted in exchange of working with a Narcotics agency to bring down criminals [...]

    The blurb gives a good idea about what s going on so I won t delve too deeply into that in order to avoid spoilers All I m going to say is, I loved this book, plain and simple It had everything I want and need in my reading a gripping, well thought out and believable story, fast action, humor, wit, and two main characters who were so flawed and human and yet so perfect for each other I couldn t help taking them deeply into my heart on the spot Lucky is such a cocky, sneery, vulnerable, loveable [...]

    For me, the most essential ingredient in a good story is great characters and that s where this book shines Lucky is wonderful tough, scrappy, smart assed, intelligent, and deliberately abrasive, as he works desperately to maintain a veneer of don t give a shit over his vulnerable core Bo is his perfect match strong, easygoing, quick with a comeback, and with hidden vulnerabilities of his own that Lucky can t ignore They strike sparks off each other from the first encounter, and were a pure plea [...]

    Not a small amount of research went into this pleasantly laid back prescription drug smuggling mystery but I could have done without some of the medical lingo.What made the book for me was the romanced the character of Lucky Lucky Lucklighter an ex con working for the SNBD and unwillingly partnered with trainee Bo.Cat and dog at first sight Lucky gleefully rubs his cocky pain in the ass attidude in his new partners face too bad he finds his match in Boe verbal fights between these two are hilari [...]

    Lucky s certainly one hell of a grouchy a e, but you kind of know that someone much softer and vulnerable hides behind the facade he is keeping up so successfully But Bo isn t taking any of Lucky s BS, challenging him left, right and centre from the very beginning Their verbal fights are snarky and fun, even though you do feel like punching Lucky at times.I love books where badass, grumpy guys show their gooey soft centre when they meet the right guy Written with a lot of humour and a good amou [...]

    All my buttons have been expertly pushed and I am a happy camper right now A fascinating story in prescription pharmaceuticals which held my attention and interest throughout Amazing characters in Lucky and Bo I absolutely adored and cared about, the side characters grabbed me as well I enjoyed the shades of gray especially in the flashbacks making the the story feel real and believable The snark, the banter, the humor, the caring AND coffee aplenty view spoiler Although I may never forgive thi [...]

    Damn I don t know why I waited so long to start this series because I really enjoyed the first book I hope the rest of the series will be as awesome as this one

    A really engrossing m m romance that takes the reader into the world of prescription drug smuggling The story is told from Lucky Lucklighter s POV He has traded in the last few years of a prison sentence to help the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau investigate and capture commercial drug traffickers He only has a couple of months to go and his boss has hired a newbie, Bo, to replace him Lucky has to teach him the ropes while they work undercover to take down a crooked pharmaceutical operation Lucky [...]

    3.5 starsI am contemplating between giving this 3.5 and 4 stars The things that go in favor for this book are Lucky Lucklighter is one of the most annoyingly entertaining characters ever He s so determined to make his replacement, newbie former marine Bo Schollenberger crazy and at times, I must applaud Bo for his patience of not actually killing Lucky lol Their verbal sparring is delicious to read But Lucky is not a two dimensional character the revelation of his past is eye opening and adds nu [...]

    I ve been a huge fan of this author right from her first short story, Pirate s Gamble In this book I feel that Eden is fully reaching that potential shown in her earlier works The writing is leaner, mature, but still retains that delightful deft touch that I ll always associate with her stories Even when her characters are in the depths of despair she is never heavy handed, but the characters in this book, whilst not reaching anywhere near the ansgt of some of her books, still manage to be naun [...]

    Despite taking me so long to finsh, down to my reading mood and not the book, I really enjoyed Lucky s story This is how books should be writen A good strong plot, interesting and amusing characters, a deep and moving back story, chemistry between the main characters and a HEA lol.Lucky was such a lovely character with his tough guy facade, while Bo, bless him, was just an all round sweetie lol I certainly wouldn t say no to maybe an extra little snippit Maybe Lucky and Bo go visiting Luckys sis [...]

    4.5 starsOne of the best books I read recently Not without flaws and Bo s character especially wasn t always consistent throughout the story, but I enjoyed it anyway so I can easily dismiss it Plus, it kind of reminded me of the Cut Run series which were a favorite of mine, and now that it s over, I like that I have a new series to read in their place.This ends with a HFN and can be read as a stand alone However, I look forward to reading the second book asap.

    4.5 starsI Loved it Loved it Lucky, the coffee addicted, smart mouth, snarky guy was an amazing MC I loved him Bo, the dimpled, sweet, broken gentle teddy bear, i adored him These two had chemistry and their banter had me laughing so hard Lucky Yes Has anyone ever told you you re a first class asshole Yes, but go ahead I never get tired of hearing it The mystery was engaging too I liked Walter tooI will definitely read the rest of the series.

    Diversion is a stunningly successful blend of romantic comedy and thriller, centering on Lucky, a young gay Southern man who works for a regional version of the Drug Enforcement Administration in exchange for a reduced prison sentence He steals truckloads of pharmaceutical drugs to identify and strengthen the weaknesses in security procedures He also infiltrates smuggling rings, which is how he meets Bo, his attractive new partner Bo is a pharmacist with PTSD from the Iraq War, which once led hi [...]

    Fuck, that was SO GOOD Loved it once I feel in love with Lucky.Off to read the sequels

    Sandra
    3.5 stars Overall I really enjoyed this book, even though I ll point out several things that I thought could have been done better While I usually love a snarky asshole, I didn t really find Lucky funny He d often have inner one liners that were cheesy and lame, and was just a dick for the sake of being a dick to most people But it didn t bother me per se He softened around Bo as the book went on, and that was sweet to see, although I wasn t feeling the chemistry as much as I wanted to It was a [...]

    This book was a really great surprise I had been dying to read a new M M series Something sexy, clever and a little fun too, and this book definitely fit the bill The only reason I didn t give it five stars is because the storyline was moving a little too slowly for me for a while Bar that, it was amazing I absolutely loved Lucky even though he is definitely an asshole sometimes I lost count of the times he made me laugh out loud Lucky peered at Bo s ass while humming Black Eyed Peas My Hump, ma [...]

    4 Strong StarsWhat a ride Bumpy, but NEVERTHELESS, good Snarky Lucky, needs some love and it was ever so Sweeeeeeet The Book Lucky.m, he was irritating, some of his snarky remarks were not bad, but,were irritating at times he was okay, the story line was a little bumpy, hard for me to get into, but.Gosh I really, really liked Bo, he was great, although I couldn t really see him as a Marine guy Nevertheless I liked his persona he was so freakin adorable, and he uses the same sweeter packets as me [...]

    I loved this book I loved Lucky and Bo They fit together nicely and Lucky and his snarky remarks made me laugh The book was the first Eden Winters book I read and I was impressed This book has it all for me and although the romance was not the most romantic, it left a lot of room to build on.Out of the MC s my favourite was Lucky Most would probably think I was mad to think that, but non the less it was the God s honest truth I love snarky and tough characters He was both of those things and so [...]

    Jenna
    Seems I m pretty lonely in my dislike of this book, but I m ok with that It didn t work for me for several reasons The first problem was the characters I couldn t stand Lucky and I didn t like Bo either Their entire interactions for the first half of the book were constant childish bickering rather than entertaining banter I like smartass characters, but Lucky was just an ass without the clever humor Bo wasn t anything special either After they hooked up, they didn t act like squabbling siblings [...]

    Day-thief
    This had all the ingredients for a good book law enforcement, antagonistic MCs forced to live together, and an unusual setting But nothing ever really meshed together the self proclaimed sniping banter was really tame and seldom funny, our two Alpha men cried on each others shoulder without much prodding, and the sex felt rushed and carelessly described Lucky s decision at the end wasn t well explained and thus seemed totally random.The writing was ok, though.

    Anke
    Funny, how sometimes the books that gave me the biggest problems to get into them, turn out to be the best reads This is one of them After getting further than the first few pages I was totally gripped Lucky won me over and it was so engaging to read about him opening himself up to the possibility of something than just a hook up This was a wonderful book and Lucky and Bo will stay with me for some time, that s for sure.
