Re-read and re-rated. What frustrated me at the first reading? Well, this had two likable MC's, an intriguing start to a D/s hookup and lots of sexual tension. A gorgeous, commanding, cross-dressing Japanese cop seduces a didn't-know-he-was-into-heavy-kink, sexually adventurous NYC cop. Sparks finally fly, the hotness gets cooking, and...then...it...just...ends. Hotness Interruptus. Not nice. Now, I will read the sequel -- I have to find out what happens but it had better be worth it. Upgraded to 3 stars for the Hotness quotient, good writing, and potential.
