Blurb: Angel Daniels grew up hard, one step ahead of the law and always looking over his shoulder. A grifter’s son, he’d learned every con and trick in the book but ached for a normal life. Once out on his own, Angel returns to Half Moon Bay where he once found… and then lost… love.
Now, Angel’s life is a frantic mess of schedules and chaos. Between running his bakery and raising his troubled eleven-year-old half brother, Roman, Angel has a hectic but happy life. Then West Harris returns to Half Moon Bay and threatens to break Angel all over again by taking away the only home he and Rome ever had.
When they were young, Angel taught West how to love and laugh, but when Angel moved on, West locked his heart up and threw away the key. Older and hardened, West returns to Half Moon Bay and finds himself face-to-face with the man he’d lost. Now West is torn between killing Angel or holding him tight.
But rekindling their passionate relationship is jeopardized as someone wants one or both of them dead, and as the terrifying danger mounts, neither man knows if the menace will bring them together or forever tear them apart.
Review: Angel Daniels and West Harris spent a wonderful summer together when they were younger. Now years later Angel is back in town. West and Angel but heads in a business dispute.
But in between all the emotional drama is danger in the form of an unseen threat wanting both men dead. Heart stopping, riveting, fast paced this book packs a punch. I had a problem with the fact that it seemed as though Angel and West wanted to reconnect something would happen to break it apart. As a result it seemed as though their relationship was an afterthought to all the other things going on.
Aside from that I really enjoyed both characters and the struggles they work through as they seemed to grow more. Entertaining and addicting this addition leads the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions.
Great read with engaging characters throughout.
