An Ali Release Day Review: Jaeger (Order of the Black Knights #4) by Evelise Archer

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
jaeger-by-evelise-archerUS Marshal Jaeger Tripp is assigned to the Federal Witness Protection Program. The hurt and destruction he’s seen—along with protecting criminals who are only cooperating with the authorities to keep themselves out of jail—have left him with a bleak and jaded view of both life and people. His current assignment is Wren O’Riley, a computer wizard who witnessed a high-profile cartel hit.

To Jaeger, Wren is the same as any other job. He must protect him long enough to get him to testify at trial, and his personal feelings have no place in his work and must be set aside. But that’s easier said than done. On the run and fighting for their lives, Jaeger and Wren can’t help but grow closer. AndJaeger can’t help seeing beyond Wren’s nerdy exterior to a man who might be just what Jaeger needs to settle his soul and capture his heart—if they survive long enough to get that chance
This was my first time reading this author and I ended up really liking this.  This is the fourth book in the series and I have not read the first three.  I did not think it would matter as each book in the series is written by a different author.  It turns out I was right and this book worked fine as a standalone.  
As the plot states, Jaeger is a jaded US Marshal who ends up protecting Wren, who has witnessed a cartel hit.  The men couldn’t be more different but being in close quarters leads them to having feelings for each other.  They end up on the run and this part of the story is full of action and was entertaining.  I liked both of these MC’s and they were really great together.  I especially like the opposites attract trope in romances.
This was a shorter story but still managed to contain a lot of plot and it fleshed out a great relationship between the two men.  I enjoyed this a lot and will definitely look for other books by this author.  
Cover Artist: Paul Richmond:  I like the cover.  Each of the books in this series are similar and I like how uniform they are.  I always like when I can look at a book cover and know immediately what series it is from.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
