An act of violence destroys his family and ends the life he knows. To escape his haunted past, he joins the military, where, as a sniper, he is trained to kill with precision and detachment. When a covert organization offers him a new purpose, he becomes Haven, an operative devoted to protecting the innocent when he can and avenging them when he cannot.
After ten years of battling the evil in the world, the life no longer holds the attraction or meaning it once had, and he’s ready to walk away. Then he meets Samuel, a young man forced from the age of twelve to work as a sex slave. If ever a man had a need for Haven, it is this one.
Yet nothing about this growing relationship is one-sided. Sammy gives Haven a stability he’s never known, and Haven becomes the rock upon which Sammy knows he can depend.
When Sammy reveals something about the enemy Haven has been hunting for months, Sammy fears it will destroy what they’ve built and he’ll lose his home in Haven’s heart.

This was a well done story. I loved Haven and Sammy, along with Kelly, and Rook. I had a little bit of doubt about how Sammy handled his trauma, and how it didn't seem to affect him like we would think it would. However the author did a really good job of showing Sammy's cracks beneath his strength. One of my favorite things about this story was how the people Haven worked for were portrayed. Most assassin stories I've read the employer was written as cold and hard, but I didn't get that from this one. I have to say though, Sammy was HOT and I'm not talking about looks either. They dynamic between him and Haven was so well done. Overall, the story was very well done.
Haven's Creed by Parker Williams Michael Patrick Phelps was brought up by an abusive stepfather. One day he comes home from school and finds his stepfather, Arnie, beating his sister Chrissie (Christina) to death and Michael shoots and kills his stepfather. Chrissie ends up as a warden of the state in a hospice and Michael joins the Army. He's recruited by a secret governmental agency and assumes a new identity of Haven. His new job is to find and kill people who are abusing children, making them drug addicts and condemning them to a life of prostitution. Because these people are lawyered up they escape justice and it's up to Haven to revenge them. In one of his jobs, Haven rescues Samuel Morin, Sammy, who was a sex slave from age 13. His mother sold him into prostitution and then killed Sammy's father. It's now up to Haven to find Sammy's mother and extract the revenge he deserves. But Sammy and Haven fall in love and it will be their relationship that will save them both. The book is narrated from the 1st person point of view and herein lies the problem. We have Haven narrating the story from his point of view and we are expected somehow to get inside the other characters; minds from the author's use of dialogue. This does not work. The characters don't seem real, the plot is not believable, and even the sex is boring. I think a lot was lost by not showing us what was going inside the other characters minds. Most of the villains have the same CV: drug pushers, sex offenders, prostitution, and child sex abuse. They are molds of each other. Had the author chosen to give us their point of view, it might had been a better book.
