Blurb: The Middle East War is finally over and veteran, Cole Everett, is trying to build a new life in Los Angeles and reconnect with his cousin, Sean Martin, a private investigator. His hopes stall when he learns that Sean’s mate, Arturo, is a vampire. It might be 2034 and vampires are an accepted part of society, but Cole can’t accept that anyone would willingly mate with the undead. That is, until he meets Arturo and is introduced to the incredibly handsome Rafael Barrantes. Attracted to Rafael, Cole has to rethink everything he thought he knew about vampires. Taking a job as a security guard for a high-tech company, Cole becomes suspicious when all is not what it seems with so-called ‘government contracts. He can’t decide if he should play it safe and call the cops, or take a chance on his newfound vampire friends. Safe and secure, or caution to the wind?
Review: Cole, Sean’s cousin, is looking for a fresh start after his military enrollment comes to an end. He decides to visit Sean and is shocked that his cousin is with a vampire. He panics and leaves. Cole has a low tolerance for the paranormal until he is introduced to Rafeal.
I loved that the story did not start with Cole and Rafeal. Instead it built up to them meeting, Cole coming to grips with his bigotry and seeing there are things out there that are worth taking a chance on. Sean and Arturo are still very much in love in this story and it shows throughout.
I simply loved the entire story. The two couples blended well together and the story flowed from one to the other and dealt with different issues going on. All in all it was a great read.
