Both books in W.S. Long’s best-selling Love and Mystery series are now available together in one box set! Contains the stories:

Love and Murder — Jake Chandler is a struggling small-town Florida lawyer, and his life is falling apart. His ex-wife makes seeing his daughter difficult, his boyfriend Noah may be cheating on him, and his money woes are growing. Jake hopes that a new murder defense case will help with his money woes, but his ex-wife Elena is the prosecutor. It’s bad enough she has to fight with him over custody of their daughter. Now she wants nothing more than to beat him in the courtroom, too.

And then people around him start dying.

First, an ex-lover gets his brains blown out while he and Jake have coffee. The danger comes even closer. Then Jake meets handsome FBI agent Xavier, who is investigating the crimes surrounding him. Can Jake trust this new man in his life? Is Xavier who he says he is? Or does his involvement put Jake and those he loves in even more danger?

Love and Pain — After their too-thrilling courtship that included capturing his former lover’s killer, Jake Chandler has started a new life for himself with FBI agent Xavier. Living together is wonderful, but moving to Washington D.C. has resulted in temporary jobs that don’t last long. When Jake finally lucks out on a too-good-to-be-true position with a big law firm, Xavier suspects Jake’s new boss is crooked.

With some sleuthing, snooping, and close calls, Jake gets deeper into trouble at work, and conflicts with Xavier make his world start to crumble. When a key witness is shot to death in front of Jake, they both begin to realize how high the stakes are. Can Jake and Xavier get through these threats and find happiness with each other?

Before you sit down to read this box set, I am warning you, you need to make sure you have a box of tissues nearby. This book is going to break your heart in more ways than one and then it is going to slowly put it back together. I will admit while reading the first book in this box set that I found I was really upset with how WS Long played it out, but after reading book two, I got it!!

Jake is a struggling defense attorney. He is just scraping by trying to make ends meet. Not only that but he is behind on his alimony and child support payments and his boyfriend Noah, he cannot seem to stay faithful to Jake. No matter how many times Noah has promised it will not happen again, it still does.

Now that Jake has a new or like-new, client to defend, he is hoping things may be starting to look up for him. But then he finds out Noah has once again cheated. Of course Jake does not think he will be able to forgive him this time. Then to make matters worse, Jake runs into an ex named Anton and after agreeing to meet up, Anton is killed in front of him and Jake is injured.

The more Jake looks at everything around the death of Anton, the more he questions if the shooting was because of Anton or if it was because of Jake himself. When Jake thinks he has a lead on who may be behind the murder, he turns to Noah for advice.

Noah in turn decides Jake is in need of his help proving Jake’s theory. This sets off a series of events that will forever turn Jake’s life upside down. Things will never be the same for Jake.

This is all the detail that I am going to give where this series is concerned. But take my word for it, this is just the beginning and if you do not read this box set then you will definitely be missing out on an extremely good read. It is full of mystery, danger, loss, love, and so much more. W.S. Long did an amazing job on this for sure. I hope there will be more of Jake and his crazy life in the future.

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.
