"Nick Starsky was behind bars and out of his brother's life, or so Starsky and Hutch thought. But circumstances set in motion in the first story continue to play out, and Nick Starsky may just be the catalyst that brings the two detectives together as lovers."
Reactions and Reviews
In this sequel to Minnie K's "Blood Test" , the author (now writing under slash alter-ego Sarah Problem) picks up immediately after the events in the first story, weaving an intriguing plot of conspiracy and assassination which serves as the backdrop against which the Starsky/Hutch relationship develops. The transition from a Starsky & Hutch friendship to a Starsky/Hutch romance is rather seamless, evolving in a quiet, natural way that is completely in synch with the characters and their relationship as we were treated to in the initial Gen work. S&H may be strangers to male/male sex, but they're not strangers to each other, and there is a marvelous simplicity, and almost innocence, to their 'feeling out' just how to go about this new aspect of their relationship. With loads of excitement, some *quite* enjoyable first-time sex, and brother Nick returning to once again be the stone in our poor boys' shoe (they only have one, y'see), Blood Ties is a lovely, long read to snuggle up to with some fuzzy socks and hot chocolate on a wintry afternoon.
