Cillian is a black ops agent for the British government. Deep undercover he runs his ops mostly alone. Mal is a former Navy SEAL looking for the traitor of his former unit. When Mal discovers Cillian is hot on John Morse’s trail he doesn’t know if Cillian is for or against John. All Mal knows is that John must die and anyone who’s in bed with him, too. However, he didn’t expect to start falling for Cillian and Cillian didn’t expect to fall for Mal. When you’re deep in an op starting a relationship is not the smartest thing to do, but Mal and Cillian are used to playing with fire. The question is whether they will get burned and if so, will they live to love another day?
I was completely lost starting this story. The plot is convoluted and I had a hard time following it. There’s a lot of techie computer stuff that’s a bit out of my league, too, but the m/m steamy bits were more than worth pushing forward. Computer sex and hot hard sex in a club back room are all well-done and fan-worthy. *fans self vigorously* As the story moves along some things become more clear, but there’s not as much depth as I would hope and I blame the shortness of the book for that. However, that ending! A holy shit moment for them both and then a cliffhanger. Gah! If you are not a fan of cliffhangers then I suggest waiting until the next book is out or the series is complete. Otherwise, this is a tension-filled thriller with plenty of steamy action that will keep you on your toes.
