Tate's life all comes crashing down when a big, grouchy, mean looking man shows up on his doorstep mentioning names he prayed he would never hear again. Thankfully after some quick talking Tate manages to convince the Stranger, Hawke, that he isn't looking to seek retribution for his wife by Tate..no he wants his brother and Father. Why is he not surprised. Tate isn't ready to even consider facing his past, he can't let his family know where he is, not if he wants to protect Matty. However, when running from Hawke doesn't shake the big guy off and Matty suddenly in need of more than Tate can provide - Tate doesn't know what's he will do. He doesn't expect Hawke to make him an offer he can't refuse. So Tate puts the love and well-being of Matty above his own life and safety and agrees to help Hawke find his brother and Dad.
As the two set off on their trip Hawke never expects to feel something for the man sitting in his truck with him, Hawke never expected to feel anything again except Hatred for the men who took his wife.
The feelings get stronger and Hawke can't deny them anymore - But when it comes down to choosing between the unwanted feelings Tate stirs in him and the revenge he’s finally close enough to taste, will Hawke be able to give up the one thing that has kept him going for a second chance at a future he gave up on ever having?
Overall, this story really was my favorite thus far if the series and I think it will be hard for Sloane to top Hawke and his brooding manliness. I loved Tate & Matty they were the perfect answer to allow Hawke to let go of the past and start living again. They helped Hawke see, living again - doesn't mean forgetting, it just means you're human. This book was the perfect mix of angst, Feelz, passion, desire, mystery, revenge, and life.
Favorite in the series!! Read this in practically one sitting. Could not put it down.
This series and Sloane Kennedy's writing just completely clicks with me.
It's a similar formula...MC's with traumatic/heartbreaking pasts, both trying to move on in life, whether it's through revenge or rebuilding their lives, some over the top suspense element where you'll have to let go of reality for a bit, scorching hot sex, and a quick transition to the I love you's by the end. Rinse and repeat.
And you know what? Just like my favorite shampoo and conditioner....I'm gonna keep buying it over and over and over again.
Hawke is on a mission to avenge his wife's horrifying death. He's been chasing her killers for 10 years and finally gets a lead that brings him to Tate's doorstep. However, what Hawke doesn't realize is that Tate, and his adorable scene-stealing son Matty, are on the run from the same people....Tate's father and brother.
What you get after that is an emotional, addicting and smoking hot story. Both men are trying to deal with this new turn of events while also dealing with a growing attraction to each other, along with another heartbreaking piece of news added to the mix.
I have to admit, I was scared how the whole dead wife angle would play out. Would I be able to believe that Hawke could move on? Would she be a cloud hanging over the whole book keeping me from believing the romance? Would she be a third wheel in every scene? Thankfully, the answer is no. I thought Sloane Kennedy did a great job of growing Hawke and Tate's relationship, without casting his history with his wife to the side or having her be a ghost in the room.
The push and pull was just the perfect amount of angst that I like. The emotional turmoil, the second guessing, the desire, the passion...all of it was just how I like it. Though there was one scene that had my fists clenching, but thankfully we get it in Tate's POV so it lessened the negative affect it could have had for me.
This book pulled me in from the very first page and didn't let go until I begrudgingly closed my kindle. Mav is up next and we haven't gotten much info on him yet, so I'm looking forward to seeing what secrets he's carrying around.
I haven't read anything by Sloane Kennedy outside of this series, but after three books under my belt, one thing is certain....that won't be the case for long.
This book had action, suspense, and lots and lots of heartbreak.
While Tate may not have protested, I thought Hawke was too forceful with him. He didn't use lube and by not letting Tate know where his head was, Hawke made him feel used.
POV... multi-first person
Standalone or series... third in a series but CAN be read as a standalone
Did it give me a hangover... slight
Would I recommend it... maybe
Would I read it again... yes (but I'd skip one scene)
