Fortune's Favor is book 4 in the excellent PowerUp! series by Marie Harte. I think MH is one of the best authors I've come across when it comes to M/M stories.
This is Avery & Nathan's story.
The story, as you would expect from MH, is fast paced and full of adventure!! Nathan Kraft is a charmer - too much of one at times - and Avery Holton is there, time after time, to pick him up and try to help him get himself back together.
The build up and deepening of the guys relationship as we work our way through the book makes for an hot, interesting & emotional read.
Next in the series is Flight of Fancy.

Love the connection between Avery and Nathan. With Avery's power to see ahead, he knew they would be together at some point, just not if they were together forever. Nathan slept around because he didn't think he could have the person he wanted. When they finally came together, it was explosive. Only downfall was that it was a little fast and ended too soon. 290 pgs.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Fortune’s Favor is the fourth in Marie Harte’s Power Up series of psychically enhanced agents for the government.
A year after the program is disbanded; the former government agents are all working in a gym in Bend, OR. Funded by an unknown benefactor, they’re sent on jobs to retrieve stolen artifacts that have psychic or mystical ability.
Nathan is the playboy, whose sex life is a revolving door of men. But with his history, he doesn’t want to get too close to anyone. And he’s been lusting after someone in his unit for sometime now, but he’s not gay, so there’s no hope there. With his ability to read items with a touch, he has to be careful not to absorb too much from the things that surround him
Avery is a by the book, always in charge kind of guy. Bi-sexual, he’s never really hidden that fact, and he’s eyed Nathan for awhile now, but with no intention of becoming part of that long list of men hopping in and out of Nathan’s bed. But he’s seen into the future and knows that he and Nathan get together, but as just lovers for a short time or more like he wants, that’s the part he can’t see.
Sent as partners on a mission to retrieve a mystically evil knife, a knife that calls for blood, this sends them back to Nathan’s home town. And into the pain of his past to find his Uncle who now has the knife in his possession, the Uncle who abused him while he was growing up. And along the way partners become more than that, they become lovers. And as Avery helps Nathan deal with the pain of his past, they move past partners, lovers, and friends and into love.
I fell in love with both of these characters. They are both so real and believable, Nathan with his easy going charm and Avery’s by the book orderly life. You knew that Avery was the perfect man to help Nathan through his past trauma with both order and love

A Hidden Treasure!
Avery isn’t hiding but isn’t broadcasting his bisexuality. He is a military man who knows who he is but wants more and Nathan is a temptation. Nathan is addictive to everyone, easily charming his way into your heart in a moment. He has a troubled past that he tries to hide. Unfortunately that past is kicking him down over and over. Avery is there to clean him up and care for him time and time again as they hunt down the demons of Nathan’s past. It will take both of their physic powers, friendship, trust and most importantly the growing love between them to survive the evil that hunts them.
I LOVED this story! The dynamics between Nathan and Avery were fantastic. It was a GREAT storyline and love story rolled into one! It was a fast paced, exciting, hot, loving and did I say HOT, romance. I can’t enough good things about this book in the PowerUp! Series. Read it. Fast. Seriously what are you waiting for?
