Dee had never been short of attitude; he was brash, confident, and outspoken, to the point where some people considered him too full of himself. It didn’t bother him; he knew who he was, he felt comfortable with his sexuality regardless of what some sectors of society had to say about people like him, and from his mid-teens he knew exactly what he wanted to do with his life.
Mother had helped him to make his ambition a reality, somehow coming up with the funds he needed to attend the police academy, and while he didn’t graduate at the head of his class, he was still in the top fifteen percent, which was better than he’d been expecting.
His confidence and his refusal to be back down in the face of bullies saw him through his early days in uniform, and it didn’t take him long to get noticed by his superiors, leading to him becoming one of the youngest cops in New York to make detective. The right attitude could take a man anywhere he wanted to go, or almost anywhere.
What it couldn’t do was get Dee some steamy between-the-sheets action with his new partner.
He’d found his way into Ryo’s bed fast enough, crashing at his fellow detective’s apartment the night they met, but Ryo had made it clear that the only thing they’d be doing was sleeping. There’d been no opportunity to try some moves on the gorgeous Detective Maclean anyway, what with the brat sleeping between them. Weeks passed, and then months, and still Ryo showed little sign of succumbing to Dee’s advances. Eventually, strange as it was to consider, Dee began to wonder whether the fault was his and he was being too pushy.
Maybe if he eased off, Ryo might come to him.
