No impact on the target is the call that a sniper has missed, that their position is now compromised, and the firestorm it can bring could ultimately cost them their lives.
Riley Marksmen has wanted Marcel Cross from the moment they first met. He just had to convince Marcel that he wanted Riley just as bad. When his first attempt with Marcel results in no impact, he is convinced that a future with Marcel is worth the risk of trying again.
Marcel knows there is something between him and Riley. He just has to find the courage to take the gamble in the first place. When secrets are discovered, and a threat is revealed, it jeopardizes what they’ve only just started to build.
Can they find a way to the future they’ve targeted, or will their risk leave No Impact?
Marcel Cross was a sniper for the United States Marine Corps, along with his friends they made up Sniper Team Bravo. Although they were the best at what they did they were taken by surprise at times but when they had an RPG launched directly at them they realised it was time to retire. Their leader Devon Roberts had inherited his grandmother’s estate so they decided they would all join forces and start their own business Cottonwood Training Facility, hopefully with time it’ll become one the country’s leading tactical training facilities.
When Marcel first met Riley Marksman several months ago when he arrived to design and build the training facility it was lust at first sight on both sides. When Riley makes a huge mistake by insulting not only Marcel himself but his reflexes which just happen to be razor-sharp! Marcel decides he’s wasting his time waiting for an ass like Riley and makes the decision to go out and get laid at the first opportunity, everything would be just fine except for the fact that even the thought of finding just any man to have sex with leaves cold for the first time in his life.
Riley is so frustrated with himself, he can’t believe he said that to Marcel! Not only does he have to find out who is sabotaging his job site but now he has to get Marcel to listen to him while he grovels. It takes a while but Riley gets Marcel to agree to give them a go. Whilst his relationship is going according to plan the sabotage is only getting worse. The further behind they get due to sabotage the more suspicious Riley gets about who could possibly want his job to fail and his men to get hurt.
As Marcel and Riley get closer one of Marcel’s teammates packs his bags and disappears. When they go to find out if his ‘partner’ knows anything about it they find that he has been abused and the man who did it is still in bed with him. The man is one of Riley’s workers and when he discovers what he’s done there is hell to pay. Although they rally around their teammate and try to talk some sense into him they can’t find their other teammate, he’s gone MIA.
When Riley finally tells Marcel about his childhood and how his father killed his mother when he was 8 and then he tried to kill him when the police came to get him. The only bad thing about that is that now he’s out of prison Riley has no idea where he is. Through investigating, Riley discovers that his father had another family and he has a half-brother. It takes quite a bit of searching and investigating but they do find out who is trying to sabotaging their plans. I would recommend that you read these books in order so that you can follow the story, they’re e not stand alone stories.
