No Boundaries by @authorSEJakes @samhainpub #REVIEW
Phoenix, Inc #1
When your past closes in, running isn’t always an option
The jobs Marcus Lowry works for at Phoenix, Inc. Investigations are quick and easy, and they don’t give him the nightmares his days as a CIA operative did. That is, until he gets involved in a case that grabs him by the throat and won’t let go.
Cole Jacobs left behind his old life on the streets to make a name for himself rebuilding high-end and vintage cars and bikes. But when a stalker threatens to kill him—and to hurt anyone who stands in his way—his past closes in on him, and he’s not sure where to turn.
The last thing Marcus wants to do is take on a charity case, and to say that he and Cole don’t see eye to eye at first is putting things mildly. But when the first attempt on Cole’s life nearly kills them both, Marcus realizes that Cole is in real danger, and Cole is forced to reveal everything. Almost everything. Because Cole’s deepest secrets could destroy them both.
SE Jakes is back and she brought a few old friends with her. No Boundaries is the first in a new series and is a spin-off of her Men of Honor series. Our favorite sexy trio is back for more intrigue, danger and hot sex.
While this story doesn't center around Law, Paulo, and Styx they do play an integral part in the story line and we get to spend some time learning what the boys have been up to.
Marcus works for Phoenix, Inc and has been kind of floundering since leaving the CIA. When he left he took his baggage full of nightmares and distrust. So when Styx asks him to take on a case at no charge he immediately doesn't trust the situation or Cole.
Cole is a damn good mechanic with a past that he is trying to forget. He may not be proud of the things that he has done but he survived and that was all that really mattered. But his past doesn't seem to want to let go of him and when things start to break bad he is thankful for the help that Styx offers even if he doesn't want it.
This story is all about trust. It's something that is so easily lost and almost impossible to get back. Both Marcus and Cole have their reasons for not trusting and only one reason to try again...love. But sometime love isn't enough and when you have a pyscho out to kill you those aren't the best of circumstances to try.
This story is fast paced and full of danger, mystery and stubborn men.
RATING: 4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries. This book was given to us by the author. Many thanks.
