The Incident by Xavier Axelson

In the line of duty, decisions that will change your life forever are made in a split-second. Nobody knows that better than Officer Michael Carmac, whose fatal split-second decision haunts his days. Tormented by guilt, Michael seeks solace in a bottle and the friendship he has with his partner, Officer Bertram Angel. But the more he leans on Angel for support, the more Michael discovers a longing that he’s kept hidden for too long. Can Angel help ease the pain of guilt or will Michael’s hidden desires be the end of their friendship?

Reviewer: CitrusFruit
This is the story of Michael, who in the line of duty caused the death of a young boy. Although nobody blamed him, he still blames himself and can't forgive or forget. His nightmares wake him from his sleep and the scene where he wet his bed was heart wrenching. His best friend and partner Angel who is a free spirited cop but cares a lot about his friend and tries to pull him out of this hole. Both love and care about each other without knowing.

The pace was slow but it was required in this story and at the end their love making felt like a slow dance. I liked the way the author went through the characters emotions even Angel's, who was always self assured, but was flustered with his feelings towards his friend. I give 4 stars because it was nicely written and I would like to read more from this writer.
