If running from a hit man wasn’t scary enough, ATF agent Thayne Wolfe, has a new challenge in his life and this one may be even more dangerous than the last. He has to figure out how work with his reckless new partner, a handsome former Marine who seems to have a death wish.
Jarrett Evans never stays in one place very long and being chained to a desk doing paperwork is not his idea of entertainment. His lover and new partner at the ATF, seems to find ways to throw a monkey wrench into all his fun, especially when Thayne wants to curtail his need to jump off ten story buildings.
When their boss sends them to San Diego to investigate a fireworks accident, he figures Jarrett can’t hurt anyone playing with sparkers, not even himself. The fact is, danger, intrigue and Jarrett’s dubious past seem to follow the men wherever they go. From a Marine base at the Mexican border to an explosion in LA’s Chinatown, they aren’t prepared for a seriously pissed off militia, a smoking hot ex-lover, and more guys who want them dead.
The sparks will fly in and out of the bedroom in Flash and Bang.
I will admit it…I couldn’t wait for this next book in the series to be done and released!!! I fell for Jarrett and Thayne in their first book “Death and Destruction” but, unlike these two stubborn men, I will admit it, I fell head-over-heals in love with them in this one.
“Flash and Bang” picked up right where we were left off. Jarrett is now hired as an ATF agent and assigned to partner with Thayne. Jarrett isn’t used to wearing suits and ties, sitting at a desk doing paperwork, or being kept on a very short leash by his superior. Thayne is constantly kept on his toes by Jarrett’s “less-than-typical” style. Their boss, SAC Stanger has just about had enough of his antics and sends them to Miramar to investigate an accident that happened during a pyrotechnics show. Jarrett isn’t thrilled to be sent down to investigate “fireworks… like sparklers or something?” Turns out to be a lot more than just an accident when someone turns up dead. The boys are up to their necks in danger again. They start working with the local police and FBI to try to stop the chance of illegal fireworks being transported into the United States and used by terrorists.
I swear these guys have giant targets all over them. Signs that must read “Hit me with your best shot!” because they keep getting messed up and then get back up for more. They have more scars covering their gorgeous bodies than one can count. I thought it was hilarious that the one doctor didn’t want to do stitches on Thayne because it might leave a scar! Seriously Doc, have you looked at the man you are working on! But I was glad his beautiful face was relatively unscathed!
Both these men seemed to have no idea how truly gorgeous and head-turning they are. They are just doing their jobs, or at least trying to, if people would stop trying to snuff them out. They’re tough men doing what they need to do to protect the citizens of their country. Honorable and humble men. I only wish that they could let down their defensive nature a bit with each other and see that they are both truly in love. But they seem like they can’t, or won’t. Oh, and if you thought the sex was red hot in the last book, have a cool drink near by to cool you down while reading this one, because it is explosive this time around.
As you can tell, I am over-the-moon in love with this action packed series! I can’t wait for the third one to get here quickly enough. This action-packed, fast paced thriller will have you racing to turn the pages as quickly as you can. A must read!!!
