Oliver “Ollie” Petroskovic’s life as an international supermodel was heading in the right direction. He worked part-time for his brother at his detective agency—Petroskovic Haven Investigations—and had just bought his dream house. But all that changed when he found his brother dead, a victim of PTSD-induced suicide.
Almost a year later, Ollie is trying to keep his brother’s business afloat, but can’t get his PI license. Then his brother’s best friend, Kade Alme, shows up, fresh from the battlefield after a close brush with death. Kade is looking for a new life, in more ways than one, and with PI license in hand, he’s exactly what Ollie needs to keep PHI running.
When one of Ollie’s childhood friends gets in trouble, Ollie feels he has to help. Kade insists on investigating if only to keep Ollie safe. Neither realizes the danger they’re in as someone tries to tear them apart before they can find solid ground together.
“Christ, man up and stow it, D. Else he’s gonna come down to finish us off,” I growled at Donovan. I glanced up toward the stairs, searching for the shooter. We were still in the open, easy targets. Fuck, fuck, fuck! I dragged Donovan toward the car, hating that I had to use the VW as a shield. Maybe Nathan was right and I should have picked a bigger car. He’d wanted me in an Escalade, or something bigger if he could have found it. I told him I didn’t have anything to compensate for and bought the VW. An Escalade would have provided better protection from shotgun bullets.
