    I enjoy Bonnie Dee's work and while this book is well written and historically accurate to my eye at least it's also darker and grittier than I was expecting The blurb mentions government corruption and an evil man who brings torture and death to his victims Warning the torture is uite vividly described and occurs both off and on page One of the MCs Connor is a conflicted cop who sees the corruption in the police force in turn of the nineteenth century London but is powerless to stop it He's forced to participate in a raid set up to ruin the city's population of gay men This is particularly horrifying because Connor is gay but has tamped down his perverse desires in order to obey the law It's during the raid that Connor meets Avery a wealthy lord whose sole purpose in life is to seek amusement Connor finds Avery nude and in bed with two male companions I really liked the uiet friendship that grows between Connor and Avery The men come from very different backgrounds but have much in common including a strong mutual attraction which leads to intense sexual explorationConnor is forced to choose between his duty and his convictions As Avery reminds him there's a difference between law and justice I wasn't as engaged with this story as I wanted to be By the halfway mark I had to work to finish I don't want to read horror in my romance and the last 30 percent was truly grim and disturbing The ending is a HFN realistic with a hint of sun peeking through the clouds

    35 starsBonnie Dee is one my favorite authors of MM Historical Romance As expected The Copper is very well written but it was somewhat different than what I expectedConnor is a police officer in London's Metropolitan Police Department He meets lord Avery under strange circumstances when he has to arrest him and his male companions as a part of a vice raid that aims to clean the city from the sodomitesThere is corruption in the police department and a psycho on the loose who molests and tortures gay men Somehow Connor and Avery find themselves fighting against evil forcesI really liked how well sketched the MCs were and that by the end of the story they had really grown as characters Connor is so lonely without any friends or family Nobody wants to hang out with him at work he's always the odd man out who cares about rules and duty than money There is a battle inside him; he's gay but he must enforce the law and arrest other gay men But with Avery he learns that he doesn't have to fight himself any He finds a familyAnd Avery who is rich and spoiled but has so much love to give didn't find only Connor but a whole new purpose in charity missionsFor some reason I didn't manage to fully connect with the characters or the story I felt that the suspense which wasn't really intriguing since it was resolved pretty early overtook the romance There were long scenes of torture and brutality I can handle that as long as there is romance and relationship development to back it up But here almost everything revolved around the mystery There were some sweet moments and scenes when the men spend time together and bond thoughDespite my niggles I think this is a very well written story If you 're a fan of the author you might want to give this a try Review cross posted on Gay Book Reviews

    Lord Avery is beautiful entitled rich and loves to pass his time by indulging himself in the pleasure of other men But his life takes a sharp turn when his favorite molly house is raided and he is arrested He finds himself strangely captivated by his arresting officer and his blue eyes From scandal to murder to corruption and conspiracy there's never a dull moment as he and his new copper friend Conner investigate the torture and disposal of young men in the slums While they're at it can Avery crack Conner's tough exterior to find the tantalizing man beneath? This book was loads of fun and I loved every minute of it😍😋🥰

    Review originally posted on The Book Adventures of Annelise Lestrange I received this copy from the author in exchange for an honest review Let's go DThe StoryLord Avery Wickersham is the epitome of a carefree wealthy man He does what he wants when he wants and how he wants Nothing stays in his way when he sets his mind into something But not even all his determination is enough to fulfill his empty existence No matter how many men pass his bed how many alcohol opium money and games Lord Avery Wickersham is a lonely man without a purpose in lifeUntil he’s found in bed with other two men by a police raidConnor Tate is the epitome of the fair police officer He follows rules on the clock breathes justice and battles for a eual world righting all the wrongs he can Nothing stays in the way of his determination – not even his illegal desire for other men Connor knows that sacrifices have to be made in life for a greater good and he is very good at his work No matter how much he craves a mate intimacy or even just a friend His duty will always comes first Connor Tate is a lonely man with a firm purpose in lifeUntil he finds Lord Wickersham in bed with two other men in a routine police raidAs Avery and Connor’s worlds collide both men realize that they won’t ever be themselves again Avery doesn’t mind in the slightest that he has to play low to prevent further scandal in society – he was arrested after all – and Connor can’t ignore all the feelings that a certain lord awoke in him with his noble acts towards his bed mates And maybe with his winning smileBut can Avery prove to Connor that they can work out as a couple? Can Connor get past his conscious and allow himself to be happy for the first time in his life?The Analysis Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader So I love Bonnie Dee’s works I have been pinning to read The Cooper since I found out about it in February and I knew it would be a blast Bonnie knows her business when it comes to writing and character developing so I knew I was in capable and safe hands I just didn’t expected to be swept off my feet with the thriller vibes from The Copper It was so refreshing to read a gay historical romance with this element Really rewarding ❤ I also loved the dark and down to earth tone of the book very realistic without losing the romance charm you know? So I’m a satisfied surprised and delighted fangirl at the moment haha I couldn’t give it any less than five starsThe narrative style is third person with switching points of view between Copper and Avery Have I mentioned that this is my favorite one? Always I know Sorry for that It was so nice to be able to dive deep in the minds of Avery and Copper Both were such complex and lovely characters I usually pick a favorite man among my gay couples but I couldn’t decide between them Avery and Copper were really like two faces of a coin the fun easy going wealthy and powerful gentleman that has everything and has nothing versus the serious reserved lower classed and average man that has little money and the world in his head And they are glued together by fate ❤The plot had a thriller and mystery tone to it but it wasn’t complex We discover all key pieces very soon and the longing for the who is not something that will drive the reader; it’s the why and how to stop it that will Powerful people are involved in corruption and awful illegal deeds people that can’t be reached by the regular means of the law in the turn of the 19th London The kind of people that walks free of punishment to this day because of a name or money or all together It’s not hard to guess what will it happen specially if you like me it’s a fan of Dee’s works so don’t set your standards for a story with a huge twist You’ll be left wantingThe characters are the strongest point in the book along with the writing style As I mentioned Avery and Connor are very well constructed and so real that it hurts I really wished I could tell them everything they thought of each other and simply hug them and assure everything would be just fineAll of this you already knew but I never mentioned how well constructed the side characters were Bertrand a main side kick is awesome in his own way – few people would have survived what he endured – and added a lot to the plot I also enjoyed Barbara to the core I won’t say who she is due to spoilers and Avery’s employees The villains were also something else all business and danger Seriously I love Bonnie DeeNow the sex scenes I have to say that in not a single moment they were sex scenes that would be a wrong way to call it Everything that Avery and Connor did was pure love desire and passion No frantic releases just because they both liked men No desperate fucks to relief their hard reality Every touch every kiss every caress was for something a feeling that both barely comprehended until much later in the book but stronger and powerful as few feelings are love It was all about love The love for the freedom of touching the love for intimacy and their love as a couple I wouldn’t say that there is instalove in this book but I understand if some people face it like that Sometimes curiosity and need are mistaken for love Sometimes passion is mistaken by love and it is okay It happens But not in The Copper Avery and Connor know that what they have is a mutual curiosity the result of two different worlds colliding but they don’t think of love at all Not even when their feelings develop in such a fashion for my utter dismayI mean seriously? Not a single “I love you” at all? Okay thenI also enjoyed the historical accuracy of this book for good and bad It’s a turn of the century London in which a reputation is all a man has in the end of the day no matter his social status I love historical romances especially the sugared ones so a realistic scenery did wonders to my mind hahaOverall this is another masterpiece on Dee’s resume with a bit of everything romance historical gay love mystery thriller and self discovery If you love any of those genres you can’t miss The Copper a book that won’t allow you to close it until you reach the end Seriously I know it happened to me hahaThat’s it thanks so much for reading And thanks a lot again to Bonnie Dee for the trust in sending me another of her works ❤ I loved every minute of this reading

    45 5 stars for story and 5 stars for narrationA gritty story in a most realistic historical setting I am constantly amazed at how humans treat each other never changes This story is set in 1898 London and the atrocities of how children and the poor are treated sounds about as terrible as Trump's USA in 2019I love historicals that are true to the period in every way possible As I didn't live during those times I don't know if stories like this with two men could happen? Some MM historicals are all about fancy living with titles and manners and wealth being front and center This story is about the lower classes and how they fare Somehow it seems both harder because trying to eek out a living is paramount and having time for love is a fairy tale Somehow the aristocrat is persistent enough and makes the copper realize he can have happinessMs Dee makes it all plausible I look forward to reading many of her works


  7. Lisa The Novel Approach Lisa The Novel Approach says:

    The Copper is a complicated one—I loved this book but it is not what I thought it was going to be when I chose to read it This is not a lighthearted romance sprung from the timeframe of London 1898 This is a murder mystery gritty at times and a romance between two men who are so far apart in temperament and station that to overcome the obstacles in their way seems almost impossible But oh I loved what they brought to the table for each other These two men rub alongside each other like iron sharpening iron; there are burs and bumps along the way that must be worn down until the fit together perfectly I also need to be upfront about the warning label on this novel when it says that there are scenes of abuse and torture that is what they are But for those of us who like a little reality with our historicals really what was London like in 1898 if not gritty and dirty and full of corruption? Learning to live and love for gay men was unheard of Bonnie Dee always writes spot on historicals and this one is no exception The transformation in both these men is tremendous as they are both chased out of their comfort zones and forced to evaluate their lives and what they mean to each otherLord Avery Wickersham is a typical lord He eats he sleeps he goes to his club and he gambles He is the last of his line and is alone but never really feels that way until he meets Conner Constable Conner Tate has ruthlessly suppressed his desires his entire life It is why he joined the police force to help right the wrong he feels living inside himself Believe it or not these two men are the perfect dichotomy When they finally fall in love you believe it because it took so long for them to get there “Why are you smiling?” “I’m considering what an unlikely pair we are When we first met I would have been inclined to believe that sky could rain gold coins than that we would ever be together like this”Conner admitted things he once would have been embarrassed to utter so perhaps he’d done some changing as well Loyalty to a vow or a duty carried an entirely different meaning for him now than it had a few short months earlierIf you are looking for a lighthearted romance then you may want to pass on this one but I would say don’t—you will miss out on a truly great love story even if it is couched in a murder mystery format The characters of Avery and Conner are believable and it was my pleasure to get to know them I recommend this book for those who love historical romancesjust heed the warning labelReviewed by Carrie for The Novel Approach Reviewshttpwwwthenovelapproachreviewsco

    DID NOT FINISH got about halfway through Good concept aristocratic gay arrested by working class gay copper Bad execution; the romance felt forced and the chemistry was lacking


  9. Donna Donna says:

    I love historicals I really love historicals that involve two stubborn men that are madly attracted to each other This story was a winwin for me Add in the mystery aspect and I was hooked Even though this was a bit gory for my tastes I was rooting for the good guys to win while plotting the demise of the evil doers I must admit that Ms Dee has a vivid imagination than I ;p

    Originally reviewed for Love Bytes Reviews with a copy provided by the author publisher for an honest reviewWhen Constable Connor Tate is part of a police raid on an establishment catering to sodomites he never expects to meet a man who will bring him out of his self denialWhen Lord Avery Wickersham wakes in a bed with a pretty male singer and a huge hunk of Nordic manhood attached to a huge hunk of Nordic man he never expects the door to come crashing down and Constables to rush in to arrest him with his pants barely pulled upAnd all that is in the first few pages What will happen when Lord Avery comes seeking the young Constable that let Avery’s friends go while arresting him Why can’t Avery get the man’s electric blue eyes out of his thoughts?The Copper is also Bonnie Dee’s take on a historical serial killer Not one that I believe ever existed but if he had based on the victims we probably wouldn’t know I enjoyed how Ms Dee brought us into a plausible story complete with a very evil man who has been perpetrating dastardly deeds against the poorest residents of the city Will Avery and Connor be able to stop him in time? Please pay attention to the content warning in the blurb The details were very slim but the content is thereThis newest book from the author was enjoyable and well written and edited I almost always enjoy the historical works of Ms Dee whether on her own or in partnership with Summer Devon That saidthere was something that just didn’t get me excited about this book It was good but not great I started writing this review last night and put it down and picked it back up this morning and still don’t know how to express my feeling on this one I guess I will have to say I liked it but didn’t love it even though I don’t know whyIn conclusion I’m going to have to rate this one a 30 on our scale meaning it was GoodAverage in my opinion
