Two seasoned operatives finally meet their match: each other.

Cillian works for the mysterious Special Branch 20: an organization that runs black ops commissioned by the British government. His specialty is deep undercover assignments with virtually no support. He’s been alone for so long that he no longer knows anything else.

Mal’s also used to being alone. Wanted in several states and even more countries, he’s not allowed in the vicinity of any of his former Navy SEAL teammates. And his current assignment is to track Cillian in order to discover the spook’s endgame. Except he’s no longer sure which one of them is getting played.

Cillian isn’t about to let the mission that’s consumed him for the past several years crumble because an outsider is poking around where he doesn’t belong. But Mal forces his way through Cillian’s defenses—and into his heart—exposing a devastating betrayal that could destroy them both.

OH MY LANTA!! This book was AMAZING!!! I had my mouth open the entire time I read this short story. S E Jakes Nailed it!!

Here you have Mal and Cillian and boy, does this book grab you and never lets go!! Mal is this wonderfully brutal man that you met a couple of times as a secondary character in the Hell or High Water Series. He doesn’t speak as his throat was cut and it ruined his vocal cords. He’s a wanted man and can’t even be around his SEAL teammates without breaking the law. He’s hunting Cillian and that’s where ALL the fun begins.

Cillian is Prophet’s neighbor and a Spy for the British Government. He’s this very dark and mysterious man who keeps his thoughts and deeds close to his chest. He’s been working on finding an elusive ex-teammate of Mal and Prophet. He’s working hard and is getting closer to his target when he meets this man in a bar and his world gets turned upside down.

These two men meet and sparks are flying off the page!! From that moment on, they get to know each other via IMing. They flirt and even have meaningful conversations. They find that they have more in common than they thought, which surprises them both. They slowly but steadily fall for each other and neither of them really knows what to do with that knowledge.

There is plenty of action and violence in this story, as with any S E Jakes story. S E really spins a great story regarding her military/covert ops men. You fall for each and every one of them as you get more into their heads. These men show that even though they do these dangerous careers, they have issues that also need to be overcome. There is some good angst in this story with the secret that shows up. It will leave you breathless!!

Overall, I will say this book was AMAZING!! I didn’t want to put it down and I Definitely didn’t want it to end. The way it ended was like…WHAT?!?!

When is the next book coming and it had better be SOON!! HINT, HINT!! This is one book that you will want to read. This story is part of the EE, Ltd (Extreme Escapes, Ltd) universe. I would say that you should read the EE, Ltd books so that you get a feel for what’s going on in this story.
