BLURB: Forced to go into witness protection, ATF Special Agent Thayne Wolfe, is less than thrilled. The State’s Attorney needs him to testify against one of the most ruthless and notorious arms dealers in the world. Expecting boredom and lots of daytime television, he instead ends up with a ridiculous new job, a stupid new name, and the world’s most annoying shadow. Jarrett Evans, is nevertheless tasked with keeping Wolfe alive long enough to put Mills Lang and his crew away for the rest of their miserable lives.
Jarrett Evans, former Marine, has always been a free spirit, doing the dirty work for Uncle Sam whenever and wherever he’s needed. One of the best snipers in the world, Evans is at peace with the man he’s become. That doesn’t mean he’s ever liked the cold-blooded killer who stares back at him from the mirror every day. The moment he meets pretty boy Thayne Wolfe, things start a slow change and redemption begins to sound possible.
Mills Lang, the world’s most ruthless arms dealer, is little more than a serial killer in his own right. Rotting away in prison with nothing but time on his hands, Lang is determined to destroy the man he allowed into his inner circle. Thayne Wolfe will die in the most painful way… along with anyone he loves.
*Please Note* Title includes an exciting excerpt from “Flash and Bang”
My reading journey started with that amazing cover and ended on a sigh of contentment, it delivered everything I demand as a reader and so much more.
Thayne Wolfe, a ATF Special Agent (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives – had to Goggle that, living in the UK, I’d never heard of it) goes undercover to infiltrate Arms Dealer, Mills Lang’s inner circle. His job is to get Lang behind bars and the prototype weapons he’s going to sell, off the streets. He succeeds but Lang is an unforgiving bastard (surprise, surprise) and puts out a “hit” on Thayne. Jarrett Evans is brought in to ensure that Thayne doesn’t succumb to a Hitman’s bullet, but can Jarrett resist the temptation to succumb to Thayne?
The writing was masterful, it was a natural flow, as was the sexual tension between Thayne and Jarrett – it made the Mt. Vesuvius eruption seem like a dribble, as when they finally erupted together, it came over as raw, sweaty and passionate, all that hot lava they created was of a magma proportion **still fanning myself**
The humour that run through the book added a lightness to a sobering storyline, it was instinctual but yet again, so natural.
I’m not a great audiobook lover, but I need this on audio ASAP, I need to hear Jarrett’s sexy southern accent, reading it was rhapsodic, hearing it will be orgasmic (I’ll let you know if I ever recovery, the odds are stacked against me).
If you love your action and suspense combined with your romance, this is the perfect book for you. Highly, highly recommended.
Five glorious, big fat stars from me.
