Overview

Everyone knows that Prophet—former Navy SEAL, former CIA spook, full-time pain in the ass—works alone. But his boss at Extreme Escapes, Ltd. has just assigned Proph a new partner and a case haunted by ghosts from Proph’s past. Suddenly, he has to confront both head-on.

Tom Boudreaux—failed FBI agent, failed sheriff, full-time believer in bad luck—is wondering why the head of a private contracting firm has hunted him down to offer him a job. Still, he’s determined to succeed this time, despite being partnered with Prophet, EE’s most successful, lethal, and annoying operative, on a case that resurrects his own painful past.

Together, Prophet and Tom must find a way to take down killers in the dangerous world of underground cage matches while fighting their own dangerous attraction. When they find themselves caught in the crossfire, these two loners must trust each other and work together to escape their ghosts . . . or pay the price.

    You know a book is hecka good when not even a tenth of the way t

    You know a book is hecka good when not even a tenth of the way through you're checking the release date on the next book and groaning because it's not out yesterday. This book knocked my socks off from page one when the irascibly endearing Prophet Drews makes his appearance and then the epic 'gasoline to flame' meeting of two Titans when he finds himself paired up with Tom Boudreaux for the next mission. The shadow world of covert ops is dark and gritty, but makes for a suitable backdrop for the story of these two guys.

    The mission takes a dip into Proph's past and touches a few of Tom's ghosts too. Both men are pushed hard by the circumstances and by each other. Tension is high and danger is always present. The only thing scarier is that they get past the hard walls they built around themselves over the years and start to know and trust each other. The danger comes to a head and Prophet is left to make a huge no win decision dredging up all the demons from the past that he struggles to contain. Tom has to make a hard choice in the end too.

    While the mystery that the mission presents them is intriguing and deliciously twisty like I enjoy and the characters were so well written, it was the relationship between Prophet and Tom that took over this book for me, pulled me in and had me so eager to see it progress. And this is saying something because getting to know these guys through the alternating points of view just never got old. This relationship is not easy or simple, but it is loaded with passion. It was painful and it was exquisite all at the same time. And in the end...let's just say that book two cannot come soon enough. So many things are left unresolved, but this isn't a problem because I am thrilled that this is an ongoing series.

    This was one of the best series openers that I've ever read and I can recommend it to those who enjoy grittier plots, multi-faceted difficult characters in a spicy m/m romantic suspense.

    My thanks to Net Galley and Riptide Publishing for the opportunity to read this book for review purposes.

    Finally we get Prophet¿s story¿well, sort of, and only some of i

    Finally we get Prophet’s story…well, sort of, and only some of it so far. But, I’m extremely glad the next book is to be released soon as Prophet’s story is actually a multi-parter (four books I think).




    We initially learn about Prophet in the Men of Honor series and in Free Falling…both of which are incredible reads that I highly recommend. And I was very happy that Prophet was finally getting his story, but jeez…S E Jakes makes us work for it. 




    Don’t go into this expecting a resolution to Prophet and Tom’s story…(or is it going to be Prophet and Tom)? I am pretty sure the answer is yes, but since we don’t have the sequel yet, and this ended without our HEA, I am not positive. And Cillian…wow, I was almost rooting for him and Prophet together, but nah….it’s gotta be Tom. But, Cillian has a story, I hope.




    Tom is a smoking hot mercenary and the perfect partner for Prophet. That is him on the cover and oh man, what a great cover it is. His tattoos and piercings are great…especially when Prophet sees them through the x-ray the first time. LOVED that scene!!!




    I’ve seen a review that compares this to Ty and Zane in a couple ways, and have to admit that the thought crossed my mind as well. It is not a bad thing, trust me, but there are similarities. 




    All in all, I think I am going to love this spin-off series and can’t wait for the next couple of books.




    Highly recommend, but do yourself a huge favor and read the other books first.
