With great anticipation, I settled in to listen to this latest book that brings together two of S.E. Jakes recurring characters from the Hell or High Water series and I was not left disappointed.
This is a quick read, but it delivers on the raw sensuality and danger. I was left squirming from the heat Mal and Cillian generated even as I worked through all the twists this one delivered. And that last twist? Holy Bejeebers! I am so in need of book two here!
I thought I liked the Hell or High Water series, but this parallel series is going to give it a run for its money. Cillian and Mal are something else together. They can scorch up the IM board more than most people can do in a bed. They are both dark ops, lethal men who barely have a conscience after all they’ve done. Their passions run along those same lines and just… yeah, I need something cool to drink after listening to these two sex messaging. I can’t wait to have more revealed over the next few books. Surprises have already jumped out, but I just know there is so much more. And how do they recover from that reveal at the end of this one?
The narration work was done by favorite narrator, Dorian Bane. He caught the twisting, gritty, and sweltering tones of this shorter story. There was that something extra that really made this story come to life. Those final moments when both characters got the big shocking news had me riveted and he captured so much both action and emotion that was there.
If you enjoy exciting, dark and gritty m/m romantic suspense, you really need to pick this one up. Actually, start with the Bound series and then the Hell or Highwater which leads into this one so you’ll get the best out of it all and not feel like you’re dropped into the middle of something.
