Lennox Freeman (Free) is one of the best hackers in the world which has caused him to spend most of his life on the run. Never able to put down roots, he couldn’t trust anyone not to take advantage of him, even his own family. If it wasn’t for his best friend, Tech, shielding him, Free’s father would’ve sold him and his skills to the highest bidding crime family when he was still a student at MIT. Free owed Tech his life; so when his friend called for him to come to Atlanta to work with him, he couldn’t say no. However, he wasn’t expecting the overprotective group of detectives that made up Atlanta PD’s most notorious task force. And he certainly wasn’t prepared for the large-and-in-charge SWAT Captain that was responsible for their safety.
Ivan Hart has lived and bled one creed all of his life: To Serve and Protect. His intense focus and determination in law enforcement has led him to finally commanding his own team. He’d worked hard to put together a squad of badasses capable of backing up a very dangerous team of detectives. Being God and Day’s last line of defense came with a lot of responsibility that he took very seriously.
After his divorce was final Hart turned right around and remarried his job. He had his good friends there in the office with him every day, so it was easier to ignore the few quiet hours he spent at home alone each night. He’d settled well into his new routine and was comfortable with it. Then God decided to disrupt everything by hiring another tech specialist for his department. A man whose brains, trendy looks, and voice would leave Hart tongue-tied and captivated at their first introduction.
Free quickly awakens a passion in Hart that he long thought was dead. An attraction he didn’t know existed. He couldn’t fathom that the sexy cyber genius could be interested in an over-sized, big-bearded brute that served criminals the bottom line for a living. No matter what his best friend, God said.
A future with Hart could be potentially dangerous and often times full of terrifyingly close calls; but little did he know that so could falling for the most hunted hacker in the world. All Lennox Freeman wants in life is security, love and protection… Hart had all that to give and more.
This novel is a part of a series and contains previously mentioned characters, but CAN BE read as a standalone. No cliffhangers.
I love a series, but I love a series that has strong characters with actual jobs and lives along with a romance and this had it all!
Lennox Freeman is working with his best friend Tech for the Atlanta PD as an admin, but he’s a genius and one of the best hackers in the world. He’s laying low due to a shaky past, but he’s hoping to grow some roots here in Atlanta.
Ivan Heart is the Captain of the Atlanta PD SWAT and he’s tough as nails. He’s a big, hairy, bear of a man who’s had his heart crushed by his abusive ex-wife. Now, he’s ready to be the person he’s always wanted to be and he’s got his sights set on Len.
I loved the car chases, the fires, the rush of adrenaline and the romance. This book had it all and it was incredibly written. The sexy scenes were hot and sweet and not overly done.
My favorite thing was how both Len and Hart were big, strong men, but they each had their own alpha male as well as sub qualities and it totally worked for them. I loved the razzing they got at work and how everyone was on their side.
This played out like a serious action movie with lots of heat and just enough of a burn. I loved every page and can’t wait until the next book in the series!
