Where I got this book: Free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest exchange.
Left alone in Baltimore after his unpredictable lover bails, Special Agent Zane Garrett takes his frustration out on everything in his path until he is ordered to Chicago to back up an undercover operative. When he gets there, though, he finds himself face to face with his wayward partner, Special Agent Ty Grady. They have to deal with the uncertainty lingering between them while they work to retrieve their intended mark, a retired hit man and CIA wet-works operative named Julian Cross.
Ty, once a marine and now an FBI hotshot, has a penchant for being unpredictable, a trait Zane can vouch for. Zane is a man who once lived for his job but has come to realize his heartbreaking past doesn’t have to overshadow his future. They're partners, friends, lovers, and the go-to team for unusual cases. With Cross and his innocuous boyfriend, Cameron Jacobs, in tow, Ty and Zane must navigate the obstacles of a cross-country trek, including TSA pat-downs, blizzards, their uncooperative prisoners, CIA kill teams, a desperate lack of sleep or caffeine, and each other. Ty and Zane are determined to get Julian Cross to DC in one piece, but it’s starting to look like it might be the last thing they do.
My ReviewI have been a fan of this series right from the start. I read book 1 just as it came out and I have been champing at the bit for every book since then. I was really excited to read this one because the 2 authors who created and co wrote the series have split so Abigail Roux wrote this on her own.
I have to say you can tell that there had been a change in the writing, this one was emotional open and had a lighter feel to it and after everything Ty and Zane have been through it was a good move. It felt like they had learned to trust each other emotionally and that for me gave the series a new lease of life. Cam and Julian who appear in this book are from another story Warrior's Cross so the cross over was cheeky as it meant I then wanted to read how they got together and I have to say I am really hoping they get another book too!!
Thank you for visiting and reading my review, I hope to see you again soon!
