Book Description

For four years Rafferty Jones and Nick Tucker have worked side by side as police detectives in their small Maine town. But lately, Rafferty's imagination has been creating fantasies about Nick more specifically, about Nick and him together that have shocked Rafferty. Detailed erotic scenarios a thirty something, set in his ways straight man shouldn't be imagining. He's been struggling to keep them secret, afraid that if Nick discovers the truth it will end their friendship. But with each passing day it's getting harder and harder to pretend Nick is "just" a friend. And harder and harder for Rafferty to come to terms with the possibility he might not be as straight as he's always believed.

Nick's always known he's gay and he's had deep feelings for Rafferty for years. But after a difficult experience at his former police precinct in Boston, he decided when he moved to Maine to keep his sexual orientation under wraps on the job. He wants to be acknowledged at work for what he can do, not who he's doing. And with Rafferty being straight, there's always been a clear cut line that Nick's known he can't cross with his unsuspecting partner and best friend. And yet for the past few months it's become difficult to remember that line. He's not sure why, he just knows that for the first time in four years his heart and his body are urging him to go for what he really wants Rafferty.

When a stormy weekend trip on Rafferty's boat gives birth to an unexpected night of passion, will it be the spark they need to forge a new and deeper relationship? Or will Nick's past and Rafferty's fear drive a wedge between them that will destroy not only their barely-begun love affair, but their partnership and friendship as well?

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of My Mind August 11, 2008
By M. Nix
Recently divorced cop Rafferty Jones has had some strange thoughts lately. He's been thinking about his partner, Nick Tucker, in a whole new way. When Nick shows up for a planned weekend on his boat, Raff wonders if he made a huge mistake. Can he keep his feelings a secret?

Nick has been in love with Raff for years, but Raff was straight and married. Lately Raff's been acting strangely, and Nick's determined to get to the bottom of it. What will happen when Nick finds out that Raff might not be so off-limits after all?

Out of My Mind is a hot and emotional read. Both Raff and Nick are afraid to show their feelings to each other for fear of ruining their friendship, but once they do, sparks really fly! I could sympathize with the conflicted Raff (even when I wanted to smack him), and his confusion really rang true. Nick was so sweet I just wanted to hug him! As always, ML Rhodes has crafted believable characters and a storyline that kept me interested until the very last page. If you're in the mood for a hot read that has lots of emotion and a sweet, satisfying ending, pick up Out of Mind today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written! Kept me interested all the way through. February 8, 2009

I thoroughly enjoyed "Out of My Mind". The characters are likable and the plot moves along in a realistic way.

After I finished this book, I immediately read M. L. Rhodes' "The Professor's Secret Passion" and found the plots to be quite similar: two men admitting their repressed attraction to each other and having their first sex together; then the older partner freaks out and stops communicating with the younger completely, until he realizes his love for the younger guy is more important than any of the fears that were freaking him out.

M. L. Rhodes does a far superior job in portraying the younger partner's angst at being abandoned in her descriptions of what Nick was going through in "Out of My Mind". If you're trying to chose between the two, I'd recommend "Out of My Mind" over "The Professor's Secret Passion."

A sweet gay-for-you quick read involving two cops.

The police element is somewhat irrelevant (apart from how being gay would be accepted by those on the force i.e.. no real police drama) as the story focuses on the emotions between the men - one who is facing his gay feelings at age 35 and the other who had some issues with a previous relationship that was hidden and when his sexuality was revealed in a previous job.

Rafferty's expertise in bed during his first encounter with Nick seemed a little far-fetched as did his knowledge of how to prep Nick at a later date but the scenes were well written.

Such a sweet story of love and self-discovery. The acceptance of who they are and the ramifications of their actions is real and honest. I love M.L. Rhodes!
