No QuarterDisclaimer MaleTAG

When bounty hunter Gar Stitt is given a simple locate-and-retrieve mission, he’s convinced it’s a waste of his skills. His success rate is legendary, after all, and Captain Faolan Wolf isn’t hard to find. He’s the most notorious pirate in the galaxy, and when he shows up planetside to take his pleasures, he’s far from subtle.

Faolan never expected a hot but tightly wound hunter to walk into his private party and try to apprehend him single-handedly. And when an unexpected betrayal forces them to work together, Faolan’s even more surprised to find himself drawn to Gar personally—especially since neither of them do personal.

Gar had intended to put Faolan in prison. Instead he finds his solitary existence shaken by his desire for the pirate. And when the bounty hunter becomes the hunted, he must put his faith in Faolan and his pirate crew, or run the risk of ending up dead.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16April's Showering Words

Gar is closed off from all emotion, he has no friends, loved ones or family.  When he meets his new assignment Faolan Wolf, Captain he is drawn in by his devil-may-care personality and quick smile.  Shortly after they are aboard ship, Gar’s ship is attacked.  Gar must then deal with the betrayal of a trusted employer, who not only ordered an attack on him but also put a bounty on his head.  Gar must now put his trust in Faolan, while he desires him he doesn’t know how to trust.  As he learns that Faolan can be trusted with his body, and his ship.  His emotions are not so easily won.

Captain Faolan Wolf is lonely even though he can get almost any man or woman he wants.  Thing is he wants someone who is real and not just looking for a quick fix in his bed.  When Gar Stitt walks in he is attracted right away, here is a gorgeous man who has a reputation of always getting what he is after.  Yet little is known about his private life.  Faolan see’s in him, another lonely heart.  Faolan just has to tease, push and annoy so he can see what is underneath all that cold control.  When they are attacked it takes both of them working together to survive.   As Gar starts to open up Faolan sees that there is a lot more to him and they really do have a lot in common.

This book is an action-packed space travel, story that deals with betrayal, war, and love.  I really liked Gar, he is my favorite character.  I can see how what happened to him could really mess someone up emotionally.  Having the strength to work through it just makes him my favorite.  Faolan is great also he is just as strong and his personality is perfect to fit with Gar.
