When his boyfriend is murdered, Erick Lee makes it his life’s mission to hunt down the killer. The question is, how far is he willing to go to catch him?
Erick has been asked to team up by a dangerously captivating hitman who has reasons of his own to want this man dead. But can he trust another killer? And do two wrongs ever make a right?
Everett “Tarr” Hawk isn’t just some lethal hitman. He has his own code of honor. With Erick and Tarr facing a common enemy, it’s only by combining forces that they’ll survive. But Tarr’s code doesn’t include a fierce attraction for someone he’s sworn to defend with his life. Because in Tarr’s world, every night presents a new danger…and listening to his own heart could get them both killed.
Maybe it’s because I didn’t read the first two (M/F) books in the series, though I felt like Erickson did a good job introducing the characters and their backstory well, but honestly, I struggled with this.
Erick Lee is a grey hat hacker who is determined to hunt down the person responsible for the death of his lover, Flynn. Everett “Tarr” Hawk is a mercenary for hire (read: Hitman) who ends up saving Erick’s life and then teaming up with him, albeit begrudgingly, to take down a mutual enemy. There’s bullets flying, chases, jumping off a building…and that’s just the opener!
Told in a dual POV, there’s plenty of action, tension, a fast paced story, even faster paced romance, and a happy ending.
So why didn’t I love it? I’m really not sure why exactly, but mostly I felt disconnected to the story and to Erick and Tarr.
