After a tragic shooting left him wounded and in disgrace, all that remained of former deputy sheriff Jude Anderson’s life was a shattered femur, the standard disability package, and a host of issues. Jude seeks sanctuary in a remote upstate cabin and tries to get his life back on track.
Life has other plans when Jude finds a dead man draped across his front doorstep. The victim is the first hookup Jude’s had in, well, ever. Once Jude processes that shock he gets another when he learns that the homicide detective sent to investigate the murder is Rowan Muir, Jude’s ex. Their split was ugly, and Rowan isn’t the forgiving type.
Now Jude is drawn back into a world he left behind: murder investigations and fighting the undeniable attraction he has for Rowan. Rowan is still holding onto a substantial grudge. But both men need to figure out how to cope with being thrown together again, because it’s becoming increasingly clear that Jude is being targeted by a murderer – one who may have come from Jude’s past for revenge.
Warnings: if you don’t like man-on-man sexytimes, this isn’t the book for you. Everyone else: hot law enforcement officers, angst and hot make-up sex is on deck.
Holy shit, I fucking loved this book! It was absolutely delicious and outrageously passionate. The storyline was compelling but managed to keep the focus on MC Jude and MC Rowan’s fractured relationship until
- the glorious climax which had both men spilling their secrets to one another in front of the murderer in the case Roman was investigating.
The best part? A sequel is in the works! I would have said the HFN was a HEA, but it looks like Jude and Rowan’s story will continue, which has me all-kinds of jacked up.
If you love M/M law enforcement related stories, glorious, angry make-up sex and simmering sexual tension that explodes into passion, read this book NOW!
ETA: This book does not contain a cliff hanger but there is a sequel.
