What happens when happily ever after ends in heartbreak?
After surviving a harrowing ordeal in Las Vegas, Javi Campos and Adam Brand seemed destined for a lifetime of love. However, life and insecurities got in the way, and Javi left, nearly destroying Adam in the process.
They’ve spent ten years apart, but circumstances bring them together again. Now a personal escort, Javi is terrified when his companion for the evening is killed in the bed they shared. As the obvious suspect, he turns to the only man in Portland he knows he can trust…his former lover, Adam.
Adam is shocked to hear from Javi, but he believes in him and agrees to help. The investigation takes them into the backstabbing world of Big Pharma as well as the religious homophobic culture of Russian Old Believers. While attempting to find the real killer, Adam and Javi have no choice but to deal with their lingering feelings for each other.
I do want to say that I read the short of Adam and Javi from the What’s His Passion bundle back in 2014. So while I knew about Adam and Javi, I couldn’t recall everything about them as I started it.
Now, with saying that, I do have to admit that I was still able to follow along with the story because Stone did a great job at reminding us everything that had happened between Adam and Javi in the previous story.
I did enjoy this book, and I was on the edge of my seat at times trying to figure out what was going to happen next. But even with that, there was just something missing from the story for me personally. I can’t really put my finger on it, but it did feel like I was missing something.
The suspense in this story was amazing though. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next. Stone did a great job with the twists and turns throughout the story that kept me going and come the ending of the story I was in complete shock.
Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this genre.
