*FIVE JOBS. FIVE CHANCES FOR REDEMPTION. One thing’s for sure: these men are no angels.*
There’s nothing like being blackmailed by a dead man to really bring a group of cons together. And what a group we are: a hacker, a thief, a con artist, a thug, and a Federal agent with an axe to grind. The deal is simple, we do the jobs and Charlie’s lawyer wipes the slate clean for each of us, one at a time.
Since job number one calls for some muscle, it looks like I’m up first. I’m Steele Alvarez, ex-Special Forces Close Protection Specialist (aka, a bodyguard for some not so nice guys).
After learning what the job is — taking down a seemingly untouchable senator with a penchant for beating up young male prostitutes — I’m in. No questions. A bullet ought to do the trick.
Then I met Senator Harlan’s latest victim: Breck Pfeiffer, the gorgeous hooker with a heart of gold and the soul of a fighter. One look at him and I’m gone. That kid laid me out harder than any punch ever did. I’ll do anything to protect Breck, even kill for him. But Breck doesn’t want the senator dead, he wants vengeance.
If we’re going to find a way bring down the slimebag and get the blackest mark on my record erased, I’m going to need all the help I can get.
Like it or not, we’re all in this together.
This was a great story and I look forward to see the rest of the jobs. I own a few books from each of these authors but have never read them and I think that may be a mistake I need to fix.
Charlie sure brought an interesting group of guys together. They each have their strengths and they quickly learn how to work with each other. Even though they are all “bad” guys they will go to extreme lengths to take out the real bad guys. They all find a common ground and I can’t wait to see who the next book will focus on.
Steele feels the need to care for Breck and with his brother Ridge glaring in the background he has trouble taking the next step. I loved seeing Breck be able to get past Steele’s defenses and give him the safety to be able to deal with his demons at the same time. I love the start these two have gotten and hope we get to see their relationship blossom even more.
I loved the cover art, it just draws your eye.
