James Carter and Derek Moore fought their way through attraction and misunderstandings to get to where they are today. Sure, they’re still figuring out how to make things work between their careers and families, but their whole world is rose-tinted with the glow of new love.
Reality hits with the force of a speeding truck when a criminal starts waging a campaign of terror against the justice system. Suddenly law enforcement officers and lawyers all across the city are living in fear as their careers put them right in the cross-hairs of a deranged killer and James and Derek’s honeymoon period falls to ruins.
With James’s protectiveness driving a wedge between them and Derek pulling away as the target on his back grows even bigger, their future is thrown into jeopardy. While Derek struggles with demons from his past, it’s up to James to catch the killer and put them back on the path to their happily ever after.
Sequel to ‘Mens Rea’ published in the 2015 Daily Dose Anthology from Dreamspinner Press.
Talk about a crazy read with twist and turns that I did not see coming at he beginning of the book. I enjoyed this read but I will be honest in saying that it was slow going at first. It was not until about half way through the book did the mystery within the book finally kick in full affect. Once that happened it was an extremely good read. But I was still left at the end of the book wondering what exactly was the issue between the two main characters that other supporting characters kept referencing too. I never really caught on to what the problem was between them even up to the end so that left me kind wondering what it is that I missed.
James is a police officer who has fallen for a prosecuting attorney, Derek. Things seem to be going good between the two of them except for He fact that James is dwaling with a very strange case at work. It is frustrating James and Derek can see the tension that he is carrying with him because of it.
But the more that the case starts to heat up the more it is looking like the case is linked to the man that James has fallen for. As things escalate with the suspect the more the facts are turning towards the suspect is targeting Derek in some form or fashion.
Can James figure out who is behind everything before things are taken too far and either him or Derek or both are caught in the psychos crossfires?
I enjoyed his read but like I stated I was left questioning some things. But regardless of that I enjoyed he read and I think others will also. I look forward to more by Brooke Wdwards in the future.
