A Carlisle Deputies Novel
When Chris Anducci is moved off jail duty and into the sheriff’s office, he doesn’t expect his first assignment to be protecting a witness against a human trafficking ring. Knowing the new sheriff doesn’t abide screwups, Chris reluctantly agrees to work the case.
Pavle Kasun has spent the last four years of his life at the mercy of others. When an opportunity presented itself, he took it, resulting in his rescue. Now the safe houses he’s placed in are being threatened and he needs protection if he is to have any sort of chance at a life.
Chris opens his home to Pavle, but he doesn’t expect Pavle and his story to get under his skin… and stay there. Soon they discover they have more in common than either of them thought. Slowly Pavle comes out of his shell and Chris finds someone who touches his heart. But as the men looking for Pavle close in, they will stop at nothing to get him out of the way. But even if Chris can keep him safe, he might not be able to protect his heart if Pavle moves back home.
This was a great read. I love this series but I think this book so far was the best one. Not only does it have two men that fall in love in the most awful circumstances but there is mystery, danger, and lots of pain and heartache. Andrew Grey took a subject that unfortunately too many people face nowadays and turned it into a book. He wrote on the subject of sex trafficking. This is a subject that too many people are familiar with hearing about nowadays but with this book, Andrew made sure there was justice served and a happy ending. Though I pray that sex trafficking never happens to anyone, but if it was to happen I pray they get a happy ending as well.
Chris is so excited to finally be on the force. So when he is asked to take on a case where he is to protect a witness, he jumps at it. With little knowledge as to why he is protecting his charge, he is shocked when he finds out the information behind what has been done to this victim. The man in question is Pavle.
Pavle is scared. He is terrified of the bad men finding him again and taking him captive. He does not trust others because he has not had anyone in his life for a long time that he could trust. But there is something about Chris that makes Pavle feel safe with him. That in itself is a long time coming.
When the FBI is able to get information on the men that took Pavle, the situation for Pavle becomes more and more dangerous. But through it all, Pavle has Chris to lean on and help him to understand everything he does not understand. And through it all Chris and Pavle continue to grow closer and closer to one another. These two might actually have something together if only they can get whoever it is trying to shut Pavle up. If not then either Pavle or Chris could end up hurt or much much worse.
I really enjoyed his book. I cannot wait for Andrew Grey to release his next book in this series.
