When Greg Mitchelson’s home is torched and his employer killed, Greg fears it’s retribution for his past testimony against a notorious drug gang. Alone, with no money and only the clothes on his back, Greg turns to Colm Riordan, the Deputy US Marshall who’s protected Greg for the last 3 years. But Riordan doesn’t return Greg’s phone calls, and the local Marshal’s office refuses to help him.
In desperation, Greg goes on the run to Wyoming to find his brother, Mitch, whom he hasn’t seen in over a decade. As he reconnects with his brother, Riordan appears, searching for his missing witness. But Greg needs the answers to a lot of questions before he’ll trust Riordan again. Why didn’t he return Greg’s call? Is Riordan there to help Greg – or kill him?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
We follow on from Jake and Mitch’s story in book one of the series where Mitch’s brother had just made an appearance in Wyoming at Jake’s bar. Living life in WITSEC after witnessing a murder by a drug kingpin and then the realisation that there’s a mole in the Marshal’s office, who can he trust? He’s living life on the run and turns to his estranged brother Mitch for help. I wasn’t sure if I could trust Colm Riordan at first―the Deputy US Marshal assigned to Greg for the last three years―because of him going AWOL when Greg needed him after the fire at Greg’s workplace where his friend and employer is killed, and then not being able to contact him or his partner, it all seemed a bit iffy. Then Riordan turns up at the bar and with the help of Mitch and the team and they end up holed up at a cabin to keep Greg safe and try to work out what the hell’s happening and who the mole might be. At the cabin, things heat up between Greg and Riordan, after all Greg has wanted him for a long time and he finds out the feeling is mutual. Things escalate from here on in and there’s much drama, shooting and enough action to shake a stick at and here we find out if Greg’s trust has been misplaced. Throw in a nasty homophobic father and some great supporting characters and you have a really nice romance with plenty of thrills and suspense to keep your interest. I hope there’s more to follow as I want to see what happens with Si and Howie.

Sue Brown is owned by her dog and two children. When she isn’t following their orders, she can be found plotting at her laptop. In fact she hides so she can plot, and has become an expert at ignoring the orders.
Sue discovered M/M erotica at the time she woke up to find two men kissing on her favorite television series. She had an Aha moment and put pen to paper that same day. Sue may be late to the party, but she’s made up for it since, writing fan fiction until she was brave enough to venture out into the world of original fiction.
