It was about bad dreams, dreams that follow you... That much I got.
I'm gonna wait for really giving my final verdict, cause I need to see the big picture.
I didn't really enjoy this book. I thought it was confusing, half of the time I didn't know who the heck the characters were... Did I miss the introduction or did I simply read to fast?
So after "strongly debating" with my good friend Wendy, I'm gonna go on reading...
There we go.
Putting this one aside for now. I'll try to come back to it later. I just can't get into it. Maybe if I read it before C&R and crashed and burned on that series (pun intended) I'd be able to get into this dynamic more, but I just keep seeing Ty and Zane in Prophet and Tommy and I'm over it. Even the Uber Hot sex scenes are boring. The case (underground cage fights) is just not a subject that interests me. I feel like I could care about the characters if we actually got to delve into their histories, but the story keeps skirting around that. Basically, nothing here is working for me.
8/9/15: Tried coming back to this one and read another two chapters. It's just not for me. Why do guys need to beat each other up to prove how tough they are before jumping into bed? It's just not appealing. Deleted it from my Kindle at 56%.

Audio edition, narrated by Adam North
8 hours and 3 min
I was excited about this whole series being done in audio, and they were all released recently this December. I originally rated this book 3,5 stars, but I've bumped up my rating, since I've read the whole series and have grown to love Prophet and Tom and I feel this first book deserves more than 3,5 stars.
The Hell & High Water series is the only work of Adam North on Audible, so he's a new narrator for me. He does a good job narrating. His voice is deep and rough, so it fitted with the characters.
I liked it, but I didn't quite love it. Or, it's more mixed. I think he does a great Prophet voice, and overall narration. Tom's voice isn't very good, though, in my opinion. He should have had more Southern drawl. North just draws out the words instead of having a drawl to the words. I don't know how to explain it better.
All in all, I enjoyed this audio, and I recommend it.
~~ original review March/April 2015 ~~
*** 3,5 brutal but hot stars ***
Phew, I just met Tom and Prophet, and man, were those two hot together. They are both very angry in the beginning and the plot has some violence which "colored" the book and wasn't so much to my liking. The plot was also intricate, but interesting. I liked how they came together and kind of fought to get to know each other.
And of course there is Tom's Jacob's Ladder.... ;)
As Tom's X-ray came through, Prophet almost bit off his tongue. Clear nipple piercings and slightly more blurry cock piercings. Jesus, he hadn't expected that.
He swallowed hard, and a second agent sputtered, "Holy shit". And then Tom was out, smirking at Prophet and the agents.
"I told you they're attached."
