A sniper will employ a recon by fire technique when the position of their enemy is unknown. It can also be a tactic for two men looking to convince the man they both want for their future to take a chance on them. Nick Jones and Aiden George are committed to each other. When they meet a marine medic who ignites a passion within both of them, they’re determined that he’s the third they never knew they were looking for. Sam Wilson is plagued by doubts instilled within him at a young age. When he gives in to one night of passion with two servicemen he meets during an attack on the base, those doubts make him run. When he meets them again eighteen months later, the three must overcome Sam’s past, defeat an unknown enemy, and pursue the future Aiden and Nick are convinced they can all achieve together. Will they be able to find their target in time, or will the fire of their love be left to burn out completely?
Sam first met Nick and Aiden whilst they were all in Afghanistan. Sam is Lance Corporal Samuel Wilson, Medic/sniper with Sniper Team Bravo whilst Nick is Captain Nick Jones and Aiden is Senior EOD Technician Aiden George and they’re all serving in different branches of the American Armed Forces in Afghanistan. There was an immediate attraction between the three of them but as Nick and Aiden were already in a committed relationship Sam couldn’t stand the thought that he was just a spare in their relationship, a third wheel so he went back to his team and disappeared as soon as he could.
Nick and Aiden have been in a committed relationship for almost a year, they’re happy and until they met Sam neither realised that maybe they were missing something, a third. They spent one night together them Sam went back to his team, Sniper Team Bravo, not long after that they all retired from the armed forces. Nick and Aiden spend the intervening time tracking Sam, so when he and the rest of Team Bravo settled in Redwood Falls Nick made secures the Sheriff’s position there. Aiden is an author of m/m erotic romance books and has managed to make a living from writing. It’s not until the Team have a stalker who tries to blow them all up and Aiden is called in to find and disarm the devices he planted around their property that Sam realises they are living in Redwood Falls as well.
Nothing is easy for the three men when they try to start a relationship, Sam has had a horrific childhood that he has still not recovered from. Who can blame him when his parents made sure he knew from day one that the only reason he was born was so his older brother would have a perfect biological match to fight and beat his Leukaemia. When his brother gives up and allows himself to die Sam’s parents put the blame entirely on his shoulders. Not only do they have Sam’s issues to deal with they are told that the man who murdered his parents twenty years ago, “the platform bomber” has been released from prison.
Recon by Fire is a brilliant addition to the Sniper Team Bravo series and I have to say each book drags you further into the lives of the team and their assorted partners. I can’t wait for the next book! I definitely recommend that you get a copy and if you haven’t read the first two books you need to read those first!
