Blurb: Hunter’s a professional hit man trying to get out of the life. One last job, and if he doesn’t get sloppy, he’s done for good. Then he can have a normal life with friends, a lover, maybe even a dog–instead of feeling like a piece of meat up for auction at the gay resort where he’s waiting for his target to arrive. The waiting’s not exactly unpleasant between the great views and the even better mouth of his room service waiter, Daniel, but there are several attempts on his life, and Hunter’s forced to consider that Daniel may be out to get him.
Hunter’s not wrong that Daniel’s out to get him. Hunter’s the subject of an intense, focused, and determined manhunt. But to have him, not kill him. Daniel knows Hunter likes what he’s offering. Now if only he can convince Hunter that he’s not out to kill him.

Review: Hunter Mathews a sexy hit man, is on his last job. When he meets gorgeous Daniel Sullivan his room service waiter the hunter becomes the hunted. Daniel has been fascinated with Hunter since he was on a special task force with the FBI to track Hunter down. After a failed poisoned cranberries from the welcome fruit basket at the hotel and a robbery attempt on the beach Hunter thinks someone is out to kill him.
Hunter’s real name is Adam Murrell. He used to be a cop until his best friend’s 6-year-old son was killed by a drunk driver. While off duty, he got the address of the drunk driver and confronted him with the intentions of killing him but decided to call in the hit and run when he turned, Ed, drunk and angry, shot him in the back with a shotgun. He returned fire and killed the man in self-defense. But the police dept. let him go.
He kept getting phone calls from people congratulating him on what he did. Then started getting calls from others who needed vigilante justice. But then bad men started asking him to take out their rivals without him asking questions. Hunter is shocked when he receives a text message of his last target, Daniel. Wonderfully written. This story has lots of drama, mystery, suspense, and action.
I loved the way Daniel slowly reeled Hunter in and finally made him see he was the one for him. Steamy hot sex was great in between all the little tid bits into Daniel and Hunter’s past. You don’t find out who Daniel really is, though you will try to figure it out, until the end. Fantastic story. I loved it.
