Camden Seaver had it easy – a loving family, plenty of money, and the freedom to follow his dreams while his older brother, Sebastian, took charge of the family business. But when a tragic plane crash killed his parents, all the responsibilities he never wanted landed firmly on his shoulders. Now saddled with his crazy, grief-stricken brother and his dad’s multimillion dollar company, Cam doesn’t trust in dreams anymore. He’s forgotten what “easy” feels like.
FBI Agent Kendrick “Cort” Cortland learned the hard way that he couldn’t depend on anyone but himself. Before joining the FBI, the one constant in his life was his foster brother, Damon – and then Damon disappeared. Now, Cort is determined to find his brother and to bring down the man responsible for ruining Damon’s life, Sebastian Seaver. He’s got nothing left to lose.
When Cort’s investigation leads him to Seaver Tech…and Camden Seaver…what started as a quest for revenge and a one-night deception quickly turns into far more than either man bargained for. But how can either man trust in something that seems so easy? As long-held secrets are revealed, the attraction between Cam and Cort becomes combustible – an undeniable love that will either make or destroy them. Will Cam and Cort let their conflicting loyalties drive them apart? Or will they decide that sometimes love is the easy way?
New to me author May Archer has really blown me away with this story. I’ll be honest and admit that the first few pages had me worried. Usually, if a book captures my attention right away I know it’s going to be good. This one took a bit for me to get into it and I even put it down for a day. Knowing I needed to finish it I picked it back up and let me tell you. Maybe I was just in a funk when I started, I don’t even know but I really couldn’t put this down the second time around. The way this author started the connection between Cort and Cam was perfect. I loved their chemistry it was electric and you could feel it on the pages. I loved how they couldn’t stay away from each other when some of the truths were untold. These two together were magic and I really couldn’t get enough. The mystery element didn’t hurt either. I was thinking so many things while reading and the author had me guessing practically to the end.
The only family Cort has ever known, his foster brother Damon, is in trouble. Damon sacrificed a lot for Cort when they were kids so Cort will stop at nothing to help Damon. On his mission he doesn’t expect to like and ultimately fall for his mark, Cam Seaver.
Cam can’t believe the connection he shares with Cort was all a lie. Feeling hurt but resigned Cam decides to help Cort in hopes to keep his own brother out of trouble.
There is a big “what’s going on?” element to this story so I don’t to give anything away. The mystery had me on the edge of my seat. Not to mention how hot Cam and Cort were…oh my..! I really can’t say it enough they burned up the sheets.
I’m hooked on this series. Great writing, really great writing! I thoroughly enjoyed this….absolutely recommend.
