Sergeant Connor Finley and Sergeant Shawn Weller are dedicated soldiers working covert ops for Shadow Unit — a joint UK/US anti-terrorism task force.
Partners in the field and out, they had been through hell together for the last four years and made it through standing side by side. But when their latest undercover op to bring down an arms dealer plunges them into a world of drugs, sex and violence, Shawn must literally get in bed with the enemy in order to complete the mission. And Connor is forced to watch, helpless, as his partner is broken into pieces.
Will love be enough to put them both back together or will this be their final mission?
When Shawn is called to go undercover in a gun runners house as his new boy toy he is up for the job. What they don’t know is that this particular bad guy does to make sure his toys stay loyal is to get them hooked on drugs.
Connor is not only Shawn’s partner at work, he is also his other half. So when Connor is called to get a job in security at one of the establishments owned by said bad guy. It’s the job and that’s what they do, make the world a safer place.
Yet when Shawn shows all the signs of addiction within the first few days, Connor wants him pulled. He is worried that they will find him dead of an overdose. Shawn being the professional that he is demands to finish the mission. Yet when he gets the information needed, he still goes back in. Says if he disappears now they will just change the meeting time and it will all be for nothing.
When everything is said and done, Shawn is hooked up to machines, with Connor holding his hand. Can Connor bring Shawn back to the man he was before this mission started? Will their relationship survive Shawn’s guilt of what happened?
This is a graphic story that deals with raw and dangerous sex and drugs. It’s a good solid read but not if you want a light fluffy happy story. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a more dark criminal story, with sex and love not always at the same time!
