Lime Gelatin and Other Monsters (2016) Angel Martinez

Kyle Monroe has been a cop at the 77th precinct for several months, when he is assigned a new partner: the extremely stoic and handsome Vikash Soren. He wants to dislike Vikash, but instead falls for him–which is a terrible idea, since they’re partners.

This is a M/M fantasy romance police procedural.

Got all that?

This is also a very silly story in a very silly world.

That said, it was a fun and enjoyable silly.

Lieutenant Dunfee is the anti-priestess of an elder god. As I understand it, she has to perform certain rituals to keep the god from manifesting, which would be A Very Bad Thing.”

The interesting thing was that the characters were serious about their work, but didn’t take themselves seriously. Which is good, because one of the characters is a Leather Jacket.

Between them, in the chair a suspect would take while he was being booked, was a leather jacket. Not odd if the jacket had behaved normally and stayed draped over a chair arm like a good, proper jacket, but this one was sitting up with the buckled strap on one sleeve cuffed to the chair arm.

It isn’t clear whether the strange paranormal happenings have always occurred in the world, or if they are recent, but everyone accepts that weird things happen, and that the 77th is full of weird cops.

“Greg hears the unhappiness of waterfowl.”

“Don’t even know what to say to that.”

“Most people don’t.” Kyle held up his hands. “Don’t get me wrong. He’s a good cop.”

There is boinking here, but it’s also a fascinating world, and I quite liked the characters. The only negative was that they story ended rather abruptly. Mostly I’d forgotten it’s a novella, but it was only a couple of bucks, so it was fine.
