I enjoyed A Better Man, book 1 in the series, so I instantly asked to review book 2. A Hunted Man was more complex, which usually happens in the second book in a series. Cam has been in jail for a decade for crimes he didn’t commit – for reasons he cannot fathom. Survival is his mantra. Hope is dangerous. And yet…out of prison and in Halfway House, he begins to feel hope again. Hunter, an assistant DA, is troubled with the cases falling across his desk, cases that end up with the accused back in prison and dead. Seeing and falling for Cam wasn’t in the cards, but once he does, he will stop at nothing to protect the man he loves from men far more powerful than he could fathom.
Besides the fact the BIG event –the one you usually don’t expect until right before the end – happens just over half way through, I really enjoyed Hunter & Cam’s story. It was a little slow-going in the beginning, but once all the pieces fell into place, it was full steam ahead.
Drug runners, dirty cops, judges, and attorneys, men who make sure they get what they want and nobody stands in
their way. Hunter and Cam are up against all of them. But I simply LOVED the help Hunter had in this thing. I mean loved! Usually, writers will make the heroes morals so tight that they treat the villains much better than they deserve. I’m not going to give it away, but what Hunter and his friend Adrian did to the bad guys was…well, priceless. I probably would have given this 4 stars just like I did the first book, but that act, in and of itself, was worthy of a bump up to 5 stars.
Well, done, Jaime Reese, welldone.
