Greg has pined for Jake since they met but Jake has apparently been oblivious as he hooks up with a different girl every night. When the book begins Jake has recently been drinking heavily as a way of coping with a traumatic past that came to a head just before he started working with Greg six years ago. It's not clear why he is only engaging in this destructive behaviour now, but his drunkenness creates an opportunity for the first kiss, the subsequent awkwardness, etc, etc.
We don't learn anything much about Greg in this book at all except that his family disowned him because of his choice of work. He tells himself to take things slowly with Jake, but then does the exact opposite (eg disrespecting Jake's privacy and invading his personal space). After initially exhibiting much uncertainty, when Jake decides he might as well be gay his dominant streak in bed rather comes out of nowhere. He begins therapy of a sort to deal with his past but when events intervene he suddenly seems absolutely fine and his psychological problems disappear because there's a killer to hunt down. Overall the relationship between Greg and Jake didn't develop in a realistic or very emotionally involving way, in my opinion. It all felt kind of perfunctory.
Ferguson's writing is OK if not inspired. The first person present tense narration sometimes slips into past tense for no reason and there are some grammatical errors here and there. There isn't much fleshing out of this world and the whole story felt rather undeveloped. I won't bother with any more books by this author.
This is a quick read that packs quite a punch! You can feel the connection and the tension between Jake and Greg right from the very first scene. And it only ramps up as the story goes on. Jake and Greg are two very rugged men and are the "muscle" for their boss, Ron. Being gay in their world is not something you advertise. Greg has long been in love with Jake but Jake has serious demons and uses booze and women to avoid them. I can't fault him for wanting to be numb but I can't say that I really liked him when he was drinking and being a man-whore.
When it was just Jake and Greg, the scenes had a very intimate feel to them. They were so unsure of each other. Their tentative kisses and touches were super sexy but when things changed and Jake went all alpha....oh god was it good!!!!!!
It was great to see them in action too. Working together against a common enemy. I don't want to spoil anything but something's going down and the boys need to figure out who's behind it.
I'll be watching for Book 3. I need to know how all this pans out. And I hope Sarah writes more m/m books because I really enjoyed this one.
