Book Description

When cop Christian Parker meets D.A. Denny at a bar and takes him home, they have one steamy night of passion. That might be the end of it, but a deposition brings Christian back into Denny's life. Denny tries to deny his feelings for Christian, preferring to be a player, but when a family tragedy brings Christian down, Denny is there to comfort him.

Everything that can go wrong for these two does go astray, and Christian is ready to give up. When another tragedy threatens to tear them apart forever, though, it might just be Denny who has to convince Christian that he's ready to settle down. Can they struggle through everything life throws at them and find a way to stay together?

4.0 out of 5 stars Civil Liberties by J.J. Massa October 7, 2012
By Elisa
Format:Kindle Edition
Christian is a NYPD cop in the closet. Since he is a military brat and plus a cop, he doesn't feel to be open about his homosexuality at work, and so, in his mid twenty, he is still a "virgin" with men. But lately he saw a man that could make he change his mind on remaining chaste.

Denny sees Christian in a local gay club. He is intrigued by the shyness of the man, who dares only to meet his eyes and nothing more. Denny is a past forty District Attorney, and also him should maintain a low profile about his sexual preferences, and plus he is a bit of a don juan, always having relationships without string attached. And so when he sees the chance to debauch young Christian, he jumps to the possibility, without worry to much of the consequences.

And the consequences are that Christian is in love with Denny, his first love and first man. And when Denny leaves the morning after with the promise to call, he believes him. Only that Denny has no intention to maintain his promise. And probably he would never see again Christian, if he didn't find the man in front of him as witness in one of his cases.

Now Denny has to decide if leaving alone the man, and hoping that with time he will recover from his heartbroken, or if pursuing this relationship. As Christian say, it's all up to Denny.

The story is not very long, less than 90 pages, but I like it. I like Christian, he is sweet and sincere, open with his feeling and so easy to be wound. He is a cop but he has no problem to admit that outside his work, he likes a commanding man, someone he could give up the hand. Christian is a good boy, from a conservative family; he is full of doubts, he doesn't want people around him to suffer for his decisions, but he is "straight" to them, he doesn't deny his true nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Civil Liberties September 17, 2008
By M. Nix
Format:Kindle Edition
Christian, a police officer who's still in the closet, is instantly attracted to the older man he's seen at the bar he's been frequenting. Jumping at the invitation to take him home, their hot passionate night together was more than Christian could have ever imagined and sadly it's only for one night. When Christian's job has him meeting with the District Attorney's Office, Christian is shocked to see the man who has been invading his mind sitting across from in the D.A.'s chair.

D.A. Denton O'Connor also keeps his sexual orientation private. Denny very rarely finds himself wanting a person, male or female, more than once but he too couldn't keep his mind or his body from remembering his night with Christian. Determined to avoid the complications a relationship brings, Denny tries to stay away from Christian but tragedy leads him to be by Christian's side.

Civil Liberties is a very emotional story, especially where Christian is concerned. Denny's very dominate personality is welcomed by Christian who loves how Denny steps in to take care of him during a time when Christian needed to feel cared for and loved. Unfortunately Denny's fear of commitment and both men still being in the closet causes a lot of pain for them. I liked Civil Liberties; it's an enjoyable story that really tugged on my heartstrings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great delving into the men's emotions. November 18, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This one is a great novella from JJ Massa. Both men are very likable and interesting characters. Christian is the young cop, very much in the closet and to all appearance a cop hunk, but deep down he is a submissive in need of the right dominant man to take care of him. Denny is the man of the world, a highly respected and feared DA, sought out by women. Who would have thought this level headed apparently bi-sexual DA would eventually fall for the innocent young cop. Massa has done a marvelous job on the emotional rides experienced by both men. I feel deeply for Chris as he is used then rejected again and again by Denny who just refuses to let anyone into his heart. Denny is a jerk but one jerk we could forgive. And he is absolutely forgiven when he takes things into his own hands once he realized Chris is his. Really enjoy this one!
