Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Contemporary Romance, m/m
Washington D.C. & West Virginia
FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are suffering through desk duty which is almost as frightening as when they almost lost their lives six months ago to a serial killer in New York City. Soon they are ordered to take a vacation for everyone’s sanity. Ty bites the bullet and takes Zane home with him to West Virginia. He is hoping the peace and quiet of the mountains will give them a chance to explore the explosive attraction between them. An attraction that so far they haven’t figured out how to reconcile with their professional partnership.
Ty’s father and brother along with Ty and Zane soon head up into the Appalachian mountains for what they know will be a nice relaxing hike deep into the woods. Deep woods that no one will hear them scream. Soon they find themselves facing danger from all directions. Unrelenting mountains, unpredictable weather, wild animals, fellow hikers with nothing to lose and most terrifying of all each other.
This story picks up six months after the end of the first and proves to be just as action packed and suspenseful as the first book in the series. With the humor and action in the books it proves to be a hard series to put down. It also will stay with the reader for a long time to come. Readers will want to start the next book right away just to see what will happen to Ty and Zane next and how things progress with both their personal and professional relationships.
I give this one 5 red roses
