Publisher's Summary

This volume contains Diversion, Collusion, and Corruption of the Diversion series.
 

Diversion:

There are good guys, bad guys, and then there’s Lucky. 

Former drug trafficker Richmond “Lucky” Lucklighter flaunts his past like a badge of honor. He speaks his mind, doesn’t play nice, and flirts with disaster while working off his sentence with the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. If he can keep out of trouble a while longer he’ll be a free man - after he trains his replacement.

Two men. Close quarters. Friction results in heat. But Lucky scoffs at partnerships, no matter how thrilling the roller-coaster. Bo has two months to break down Lucky’s defenses...and seconds are ticking by. 

Collusion

Dead men can’t love. 

Former drug trafficker Richmond “Lucky” Lucklighter “died” in the line of duty while working off a ten-year sentence in service to the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau, only to be reborn as Simon “Lucky” Harrison. The newbie he trained, former Marine Bo Schollenberger, is now his partner on (and maybe off) the job. It’s hard to tell when Lucky doesn’t understand relationships or have a clue what any sane human is doing in his bed. Bo’s nice to have around, sure, but there’s none of that picking-out-china-together crap for Lucky.

When a prescription drug shortage jeopardizes the patients at Rosario Children’s Cancer Center, it not only pits Bo and Lucky against predatory opportunists, but also each other. How can they tell who the villains are? The bad guys don’t wear black hats, but they might wear white coats. 

Corruption

Renegade biker. Drug runner. Recovering addict. Wanted by the Southeastern Narcotics Bureau. But he isn’t a crook, he’s the law. 

SNB Agent Bo Schollenberger’s solved his cases using his brains and not a gun, and with his partner, not alone. Now he’s handed a tough new case involving designer drugs that turn users violent. One false move could end his life as he immerses himself into a motorcycle gang to locate the source. His fate depends on how well he can impersonate someone else. Someone named Cyrus Cooper. 

Cyrus is everything Bo Schollenberger isn’t, including the badass enforcer for a smuggling ring. He establishes pecking order with his fists and doesn’t take shit from anybody, not even the undercover agent who comes to help his case.

When survival depends on a web of tangled lies, lines blur, worlds collide, and a high stakes game turns friend to foe. Lucky knows the difference between Bo the agent and Cyrus the outlaw, but does Bo?

Incredible

Wow, fantastic story that gets you in. Great narration. Well developed characters that don’t feel like stereotypes. Just purchased the rest in the series can’t wait to get started on those now.

Fabulous suspense

Oh My Gosh! This book or shall I say three books were absolutely amazing. It grabbed me from the beginning and kept mesmerized. I thought three was the end but was shocked and pleasantly happy to find out there is more.!
Lucky is an ex-con and serving time in a special task force. he is about to be freed and has to train his replacement Beau. Sparks fly and soon they end up as more than partners in the field but will Lucky give up his chance at freedom and stay in the team?
Each of these books has a different plot but all are connected in the scheme of things.
You do need to read in order.
I listened to this in audio and darcy Stark was absolutely amazing. He gave each man a distinctive voice and accent and I loved Walter's voice. It was the perfect boss's voice and made me think of the old TV show Charlie's Angels. The actions are well-acted and the emotion shows through. Perfect!
If you can get this on audio I highly suggest you do!
If you like bad boys, undercover agents, drug task forces, co-worker romance, suspense and I just can't name it all.... you will love this!

I had to stop, purely awful writing

I feel generous giving this two stars. This was awful. I won't be continuing with the series.

The characters were childish and stupid. The writing is just bad. The story was all over the place and often made little to no sense. I hated how they'd be in a work meeting, and all Lucky did was slobber over other characters, especially Beau, in disgusting and inappropriate ways. Lucky was just an unending jerk. Things would just be thrown into the story randomly regardless of whether they fit what was happening or the story at all. Like suddenly Beau was abused as a child because ... I have no idea.

The weird thing is that the part about pharmaceuticals, and their distribution is really pretty accurate. I was excited to read about that, but I hated everything else enough that I stopped caring. Plus, that part of the story got lost anyway.

Audio: pretty decent accents and character delineation, but I'm sure it also highlighted the neverending weaknesses.

Not my normal kind of book. So glad I branched out

When I first started listening to this set, I wasn't sure I would like it. I tend to like things sappier and when my characters struggle less. This series, however, changed my mind, I am so glad I stuck with it and finished it. It takes a while for Lucky to warm up to Bo, the hot steamy battle for dominance and taking what each one wants was amazing. All the action for each character made this one of my favorite books I've listened to in a long time. Great books. Totally left me hanging for the next book in the series. I can't wait to continue on and see where it takes Bo and Lucky.

Really Hard to Like Lucky

By the conclusion of Chapter 9 in the first book, we had enough of Lucky's background to understand how he came by his skill set, why he doesn't trust other people, and especially why he doesn't trust lovers...and it wasn't enough. He was still a jerk. This was a DNF for me.

Fantastic action, intriguing story

This boxed set includes three books told from Lucky’s perspective. He’s about as prickly as a cactus, and pretty much stays true to that character throughout the books. Over time, he falls in love with Bo- the rookie he initially trains to take over for him. The intricate plots in these stories are excellent, and in the first two books the men are taking down pharmaceutical companies- not the typical street drugs that so many stories focus on. Having the stories told from Lucky’s perspective is cool, because it shows you his thoughts that he keeps locked down tight on, while it also shows you what the world sees of him. Bo and Lucky keep their relationship a secret from coworkers for over a year- through all three books. If you’re looking for cute hears and flowers with insta-love and moving in together after chapter 3 you’ll be disappointed. This is a hard fought for relationship with a lot of bumps and bruises along the way. A man so skittish of commitment falling for one so ready for it is a beautiful challenge

Not Impressed

I was looking forward to this series. I'm in the middle of book 1 and find myself waiting for.... something (?). The premise is interesting and Ms. Winters seems knowledgeable on the ins and outs of the illegal pharmaceutical trade.... something is missing. First, I don't find Beau's character real believable. He seems too soft to be a seasoned marine of four years. It could be the narrator's choice of voice for him as well. He comes across as almost female. Not a seasoned vet. He also comes across as timid and weak. Allowing himself and his brother to be tied up , spread eagle by a father...yeah, no. I don't know about you but if anyone tried that with me or mine someone would be seriously injured and it wouldn't be me. Talk about taking it lying down. Hope it gets better. Lucky has an interesting and plausible backstory. Beau, not so much.

Like the ebook

The performance from the narrator is very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening, but not more then twice a year.
it's like a B

as good as the ebooks

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy.

I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.
