Adam Bozeman’s world ended when he was informed his lover had been killed in a shooting. Unable to get over his heartache, he decides to go home to Cade Creek. But his misery only grows worse when he discovers his lover alive and well and living in his hometown. Before he can deal with the betrayal he feels at being lied to, he has to make sure Mike stays alive.
DEA Agent Mike Ryan spent months in Cade Creek recovering from a bullet wound from a botched mission and a broken heart from being dumped by his lover. Coming face to face with Adam changes the betrayal he feels into confusion. Someone is trying desperately to keep them apart, and Mike is determined to find the culprit. Learning to trust each other again seems simple compared to trying to keep each other alive when the bullets start flying.
But Cade Creek is a close-knit community, and they don’t take kindly to someone going after one of their own. When trouble arrives, Adam and Mike learn they have the support of more people than they thought.
This is book #15 in the Cade Creek series and gives us Adam and Mike’s story. This one was a bit different in that it didn’t deal with any form of abuse and it didn’t have as much violence as the previous book. That was a welcome respite. The story was still very good. This one had a bit of crime and suspense, a little action, with a little romance thrown in which made a lovely, balanced read. I must say that reading this, I had a hard time remembering Adam and Mike from the previous stories and I ended up going back and skimming the stories they were mentioned in. I was able to track down which books they were in by the clues given in this story.
Once I refreshed my memory, it became clearer and the story sailed along quite nicely for me. I like that there’s this running insta-love theme in this series. Although the books in this series aren’t novella length, they’re not really novels so there is an urgency to getting the situations resolved for the characters’ HEA. In all, I think this book worked out rather nicely. It was a good read.
Please not that the books in this series have mild-to mid- level violence and may deal with issues such as domestic/family violence, physical, mental, sexual abuse and rape so if those are your triggers, I would recommend you skip those parts.
This book is part of a series and as such should be read in sequential order. It is recommended that you read the Blaecleah Brothers Cowboy series as this is a spinoff and characters cross over into this series.
