Free Falling’s getting a re-release with Riptide! I’m so excited about this, you have no idea. For me, this is the book that started the Hell or High Water series (see below for more on that).
Free Falling originally came out in December of 2012—it was the first book I self-published, and I worked with Sarah Frantz as my editor (and she’s now my Riptide editor as well) and the entire experience was simply awesome.
This would also be the second book Prophet inserted himself into (the first was Bound For Keeps). It was then I realized that the man needed his own series or else he would show up in every single book I wrote. But for Free Falling, it certainly cemented the bond between Blue and Prophet. I’ve brought Blue and Mick back in Long Time Gone (Hell or High Water 2) and yes, I’m totally planning a Free Falling sequel, which would happen sometime post Dirty Love (Dirty Deeds 3). Because I can’t get enough of Blue, my favorite thief, and Mick, the man who’ll chase him every single time.
The great thing about moving this book to Riptide is that now all my EE, Ltd. books are in one place AND Free Falling will now be available everywhere in eFormat AND in print!!! The cover looks gorgeous in person.

About Free Falling:
Sometimes falling in love is the most dangerous thing of all.
Blue is a thief who lives for adrenaline and danger. And when he meets Mick, a mercenary, he’s hit with a buzz of attraction like the rush of a high-rise job without a safety rope. But after making plans to get together, Mick leaves him hanging, and Blue vows never again.
A year later, Mick watches helplessly as Blue stumbles into the middle of one of Mick’s jobs. Risking his cover and their lives, Mick saves Blue and cares for him as he recuperates, but neither man has any idea how to handle the intimacy this forces them into.
Once Blue is safe, Mick redoubles his efforts to take down the drug lord responsible—and disappears. Blue goes after him, determined to return the favor and rescue the man he loves, no matter the cost.
This is a revised second edition of the originally self-published title. No substantive changes have been made to the story.
About SE Jakes:
SE Jakes writes m/m romance. She believes in happy endings and fighting for what you want in both fiction and real life. She lives in New York with her family, and most days, she can be found happily writing (in bed). No really...
I have become addicted to the complicated men that Jakes writes. Her stories pull me in and always leave me wanting more!
Blue is a thief; and there's no changing him. But he might just be a thief with a heart of gold. He is addicted to the adrenaline rush he gets from stealing more than the money.
Mick is your stoic by the books character and you know that just makes Blue want to mess with him. He wants you to think he's a hard ass but he has a protective streak a mile wide. I think Mick might be the least damaged of Jakes men.
Having said that it doesn't make it any easier for these two Alpha males to work things out. Then just when they get things right in the bedroom outside forces may rip them apart for good.
This book has humor and bad guys and some hard to deal with emotions but at it's core are two men who were made to love each other. Like all of the books by this author that I have read, the chemistry that she creates between he MC's is both real and hot as hell.
If you like your stories short and sexy and your men assertive and stubborn then grab this book and enjoy the fall!
And the cameo from Prophet is just icing on the cake!
