Close friends and partners at FireWorks Security, Joel Weston and Kieran Ross know each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They have each other’s backs, make a formidable team, and carefully ignore their volatile chemistry.

When Kieran struggles with the aftermath of an assignment gone wrong, Joel is there to help. When Joel is caught in an explosion, Kieran jumps into a burning marina to rescue the man who means so much to him. But they never discuss what’s closest to their hearts, not prepared to risk their friendship for the mere possibility of something more.

Faced with bombs, assassins and old ghosts, Joel and Kieran must find out why they’re targets, who is after them and—most of all—how each would feel if he lost the other. Can they continue as best friends, or is it time to take a leap of faith?

I thought this was a very exciting read. You have two best friends who have been in love with one another for four years now and work together as partners at FireWorks security firm but have never crossed the line with each other. Talk about sexual frustrations on both their parts. Not to mention feelings for each other that have no where to place them.

Kieran in my opinion has at least a small amount of PTSD from his time in the DEA and now especially after a opp going wrong. This book starts with Keiran being on edge because of losing an innocent bystander to a deranged man. Keiran tried to save her but he was just not close enough. The woman’s death hit Keiran really hard and he is having a hard time coping with it.

Needless to say his best friend and partner is there by his side through the sleepless nights, the loss of time, and the nightmares. Joel is doing everything he can to make sure that Keiran does not go over the edge and lie it all together.

After a particularly bad morning Joel has decided it is time for a change and that they need the support of their team members/family. Because that is what they all are….family. So Joel sets up lunch and a fun filled afternoon so everyone can let lose and let go. Everyone has a great time and Joel can tell This is exactly what Keiran needed.

Or at least that is until everything goes wrong very quickly and in an extremely explosive way. When trouble strikes Joel and Keiran jump into action and inadvertently put themselves in a volatile situation that leaves hem both battered and bruised. Also in the sites of some unknown persons who wants them dead.

As the situation escalate, Joel and Keiran find themselves finally letting go of their worries where they are concerned and they let down their guards and seek comfort in each other’s arms.

Can Keiran and Joel find solace in each other while trying to figure out who is out to get them or will everything blow up in their faces?

This was as I previously stated a very exciting read. There is no dull moments in this read. There is mystery and suspense. There is attempts on the main characters lives. There is the possibility at a relationship where there previously wasn’t and there is danger. I will be honest in saying that I really enjoyed this book. I truly look forward to the next book in this series because I feel like this series is just getting started and there is going to be so much more in the upcoming books. The way this book ended left me excited about the next book because there is so much that could and will probably happen and I cannot wait to read about it.

Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
