About If I Ever

Some ghosts refuse to stay buried . . .

Prophet and Tom have been through the wringer more times than they can count, both as partners in the field and in life. Yet despite it all, they’ve built something great together. But now they need to protect it again: Prophet’s old nemesis, John Morse, is back and threatening everything he loves.

Prophet is driven enough to take John down alone, and with a chance to do exactly that on the table, he runs with it, risking himself in the process. But trusting Tom to help him is so much more than mission critical.

It’s the final stand, and with Tom and his team behind him, Prophet’s in for the fight of his life. Then a figure from his past goes missing, and the consequence of an old mission rears its head. As complications and destruction mount all around them, getting out alive becomes the most important mission of their lives.

If I Ever by S.E. Jakes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tommy and Prophet are once again in danger. They have Remy now so they are aware they need to do their best to return to him. All their friends (and not friends) are in on the hunt for Jack, who has become even more dangerous. They both wonder if their love can withstand this last test. Prophet is still battling his worsening eyesight. He just wants to be able to take care of Tommy and Remy and have a semi normal life. Tommy knows life with Prophet will never be normal. He just wants his man safe. Their chemistry is still incredibly hot and their arguments are still settled in the same sexy way.

The story was convoluted, there’s no doubt about that. So many characters to keep track of. Relationships past and present, overlapping. Hidden agendas, Crosses and double crosses (may even be a triple cross in there somewhere). Through all of it the characters have remained true to their particular story. The sense of family all these men have, even when they want to do bodily harm to each other, is heartfelt.

I was glad to get a settled ending to Tommy and Prophet’s story. They really are quite nice together.

**PERSONAL NOTE** I don’t believe an author is obligated to write on a specific time line. As the reader it’s my choice to buy a series before it’s finished. Each book I choose to review needs to be based on how it spoke to me, the satisfaction I received from it, not how long it took to get here.

About Extreme Escapes and Hell or High Water


Extreme Escapes, LTD recruits only the best mercenaries for its black ops missions. Prophet — former SEAL, former CIA, current pain in the ass — has worked there for years, comfortable in his role as a lethal shadow, helping those the government can’t — or won’t — save.

Tom Boudreaux — failed FBI agent, failed sheriff, full-time believer in bad luck — jumps at the chance for salvation offered by EE. He’s eager to feel useful again, even if it means partnering with a man like Prophet, who doesn’t want a partner at all.

But as the two men work through missions that mix their personal lives with their professional ones, the lines between good and evil, friend and foe, and enemy and lover all begin to blur.
