Cabe got out of the gun-for-hire business the hard way—by nearly dying. Except then his former boss calls in one last favor for one final job. The mission should be simple: get a message to a retired operative in Alaska. But it puts Cabe face-to-face with the one man he doesn’t want to see and can never forget. Not after all the secrets and lies. Not after Brax almost killed him.
Brax Hughes lived hard and retired young to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Well, that was the plan, but before he can hang up his sniper rifle, he has one last mission: win back Kyle Cabe. Brax wants another chance, wants to come clean, but after months of lying to Cabe, he knows he could face a bullet—or worse—when they meet again. And they will meet. Brax made sure of that.
With a storm moving in and someone lurking outside the cabin, time is running out. Brax needs to talk fast and keep his weapons ready. And his best weapon is the truth.
So Cabe gets dropped of in Alaska for what he thinks is a assignment but little does he know who is behind his new assignment. The fireworks between these two but with the way everything ended I will admit I was on the edge of my seat not sure if everything would work out for these two or not. So with this book you get action and steam .
I would recommend this book!
Cabe and Brax had a lot of chemistry between them when they weren’t arguing.
It seemed that’s all they seemed to do was argue and have sex..
The story had a very good suspenseful plot to it. It was a quick novella to read and I did enjoy the book.
This is a somewhat strange story. I felt like I was plopped in to the middle of something and nobody told me.
Brax and Cabe have a very strained relationship, but it makes sense when you know that Brax shot Cabe and left him to die. What becomes a story about communication, love and a strange semi-mystery is how Brax and Cabe move on from those horrible memories.
I did like that you were able to have some background, but felt that you needed more. It felt like you were almost able to see the full picture if only the camera person were to move slightly to one side. Then you have the sexual dynamic. While I didn’t feel that the heat from this story was off the charts, they did have a decent connection. However, I felt that they “fixed” their issues by having sex, rather than really working them out.
When you throw Sean in to the story, briefly, but leave out Myers, and then have the mystery of could they be found out by the bad guy, it all just felt unfinished.
This is my first book by this author and I really wanted to love it because I love enemies-to-lovers type of story. However, I never felt a connection to Brax but I did really like Cabe. I think the reason I didn’t like Brax is due to the situation that put them in the position they were in. I just could seem to get past that. I also felt that I was dropped into the story half of the way through. I think a little more background history would have been the way to go. Overall I really did enjoy this story and would like to read more stories from this author.
