Undercover cop Deacon Shepherd lost everything trying to maintain his cover – the man he loved and the future he craved. He walked away and never looked back because it was the only way to keep Rafe alive.
The last thing he needs is to be dragged back in that world, but an attempt on Rafe’s life is enough to make him risk his heart again.
Rafael ‘Rafe’ Martinez wakes up in hospital, the victim of a hit and run. He’s stunned when the first face he sees is that of the man who betrayed him and left him for dead three years before. Witness protection had stripped Rafe of his name and now it seems someone from his past wants him dead. The only way he can stay alive is to trust the man who tried to kill him and then broke his heart. But how can he ever trust Deacon, and how can Deacon protect Rafe without falling in love all over again?
This is the 3rd book in this series and I really liked it. This book was surprisingly easy for me to follow considering I haven’t read the other books in the series.
As usual the quality of this author’s work is excellent. The length is perfect. Her covers are always beautifully done. Her storyline, plot and editing is on point. The characters are engaging and the dialogue interesting. This book contained just a tad bit more angst that I’m used to reading but it wasn’t so much that it took away from the enjoyment of the story. While this author’s books aren’t exactly high in heat, it’s enough; it always seems to work out quite well.
What this book has done was whet my appetite for the series. I’ll definitely love to delve into the other books in this series.
