Mark Patterson is a gay doctor who works in a hospital. He is alone in the world, having been disowned by his parents for coming out. The only happy memory he has is of the foster brother that lived with his family when he was 18. Mateo was his first kiss, and he had tried to find him later, but was unsuccessful. His Chief of Staff had turned him on to Doctors without Borders, and he was excited to go. He had broken off his "relationship" with Raull, and was looking forward to the change. He got to the jungle and loved working with the locals. He had an assistant named Carlos who could translate for him and things were going well. When military looking men started shooting everyone, they ran, but they got nowhere. Now he was captive by an awful man, forced to deal drugs, and beaten and raped daily. No one was looking for him, and he wanted to die. He prays for someone to save him.
Josh Montgomery doesn't broadcast his sexuality, but he is straight. He doesn't care what his team is. He loves them and Riley, and would do anything for them. While he and Sam are visiting Mateo and Riley, he gets a call. A guy that needs to be put down has been impossible to get alone, and an unknown American is with him. Josh is on it, and settles in to wait the bad guy out. When he sees what is happening to the american, not only is he having strange feelings, he cannot allow that man to be raped again. His team joins him in the jungle, and they get him out.
While watching over Mark, Josh kisses him and feels that he took advantage of the man. He flees to Alaska, to figure it all out. Mark has fallen for Josh and after a bit, he goes to find him. Unfortunately, he isn't the only one going to Alaska. Can Josh come to grips with the fact he is in love with a man? Will their love be enough to save them both? When the bad guys come- who will win? And what is it about the wolf Dakota? How come he is so comfortable around humans? And what does Wayne have to do with it? The ride that is the assassin shifter series is just beginning, get ready for an amazing adventure!
Truth be told, Josh is not so "unwelcoming" to this feelings, sure, he is worried, and a little scared, but never once he denies his feelings are real and not really trouble they are for a man. There are other things that Josh is worried about, mainly the fact that Mark was sexually abused and he fears his sexual interest will arise bad memories in the other man.
These stories are delivering what you are expecting when buying them, i.e. hot strong men falling in love for the first time with another men. The author plays a lot both with the physical difference between the men, usually one is very muscular and macho man, while the other is lithe and sophisticated, but also with their social status; I'm not talking about money, since both men have jobs that allow them a good lifestyle, but more about the society they belong to and frequented until their meeting. In a way Josh is more rough, but he has also a very kind heart who is the right man for Mark now, a man in need of tender love.
There was a touch more action in the first book than here. Though, the plot is so transparent you really see things coming a mile away. Also we're really aren't told WHY the things that happen to Mark are taking place. Still, Sabine keeps things moving at a great pace and you never feel bored (or the need to skip ahead) reading her work.
As others have pointed out, there does seem to be a lot of sex scenes in this installment. Compounding the issue is that they happen one right after the other. I think Josh and Mark's courtship could have survived with more talking and less humping. But then again, it probably wouldn't have been as fun to read :)
This series is great fun, and I'm enjoying getting to know the characters. Highly recommended!
