Sometimes falling in love is the most dangerous thing of all…
Blue’s a thief who lives for adrenaline and danger. When he meets Mick, a mercenary and a hitter, he feels an immediate attraction. But Mick reneges on a bet they’ve made, leaving Blue pissed and confused.
When they meet again a year later, Blue’s in terrible danger after having walked into the middle of one of Mick’s jobs. Mick saves him, and although the two men have fallen for one another, they have no idea how to handle that kind of intimacy that’s been forced on them.
But when Mick goes missing on a job, Blue’s the one to go after him, determined to save the man he loves no matter the cost.
I very rarely do re-reads and there’s a reason for that. This book reminded me of why. I find that over time my tastes change and things I really liked before often don’t hold the same appeal years later. This series used to be one of my favorites though so I thought there was a good chance it would hold up. It wasn’t a fail per se but I also wasn’t wow’d.
The two men have met in the past and now again a year later when Blue finds himself in the middle of one of Mick’s jobs. The story is fast paced as is the love story. It was very insta-love which was probably my biggest peeve with the story. That didn’t used to bother me but has become a plot device I don’t care for anymore. Also, the story is filled with sex scenes. Too many for the length of the book in my opinion. I felt like the story relied on their chemistry in bed more so that building an actual relationship between them.
This story was narrated by Dorian Bane. I thought he did a good job on both MC’s. I had never listened to a book by this narrator so it was a pleasant surprise. I’m always looking for new narrators that I enjoy and I will be adding this one to my list.
Cover: This book’s cover was done by CrocoDesigns. I like the cover and think it looks really good. It’s a really eye catching design.

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.
