To protect and serve…. All Vance Connelly ever wanted to do was continue his family’s tradition and join the Tampa Police Department, but his dreams were crushed the day he woke with the enhanced mark on his face. After years of struggling to adjust to life as an enhanced human, by a stroke of luck, he met Talon Valdez and became a proud member of the FBI’s Human Enhanced Rescue Organization.
Samuel “Angel” Piper is eager to leave his DEA undercover work behind as he joins the HERO team as Vance’s regular human partner. But Sam’s painful past is ever present, just below the surface of the life he has built for himself as an ambitious young agent. When the team investigates rumors of a new drug using enhanced blood, the case’s mysterious connection to Sam threatens not just his life but Vance’s.
Trust doesn’t come easy for Sam, but Vance is willing to fight to convince his partner that the strength of his heart might be the salvation they both need.
I continue to enjoy these books and the wonderful world that the author has created. I have wanted to see Vance get that love you could tell he has longed for. I remember meeting Sam in Jake and Gael’s book and enjoyed getting the chance to know him better.
Vance has had a very supportive family but everything hasn’t been smooth sailing for him since he got his mark. Sam has not had an easy life by any means and I hated seeing him being dragged down by his past again.
I already liked Vance before I read this book and this just helped me to understand him better and see how badly the enhanced can be treated even if they have their family at their backs supporting them. I liked Sam but had a hard time to really like him because he did more flip flopping with his emotions than I like. Though I was truly glad for them to finally break down their walls and let each other in and have another child join the large family they have all made.
The cover art by Jay Aheer is great and I love how the coloring matches through all of the covers but they match the characters in each story more.
