Blurb: Small town—big problems. Jericho Crewe is back in Mosely, Montana, trying to deal with police corruption, interfering feds, his newly discovered family members, and, of course, Wade Granger.

He doesn’t really need a biker war on top of it all, but as the bodies start to pile up, it becomes pretty clear that’s what he’s got. Not only that, but Wade’s involved somehow, and as soon as Wade is a part of something, things that seemed clear become cloudy.

With the feds breathing down his neck, Jericho has to find his way through Wade’s maze of half truths and manipulations. It would all be so much easier if Jericho could think straight in the other man’s presence. So much easier if their passionate past could be forgotten, and if he could be sure he’s strong enough to resist the temptation of a passionate present.



Okay, now we are getting somewhere. I was little bummed in book one when the “relationship” between Wade and Jericho remained a little tame, but I got my fix in this book. No, they are not riding off into the sunset, and no happy ending in this series yet, but the promise is there and that was what I needed.

Jericho is still an ethical lawman, and Wade is still walking on the wild side. But I saw something that gives me hope. I am not sure if I want Jericho to flinch or Wade. One thing’s for certain, some things have got to change and I am looking forward to watching that play out. The part I loved the most was when Wade showed Jericho his ‘angry” face. I was like “whoa”, didn’t see that coming. But still, these boys are playing a game of good cop and criminal in real life, but the feels between them are tangible.

But, we must remember that there is more to this series than the renewing romance between these men. The mystery, the murders, the FBI, the good cops-bad cops, the crazy family, and small town America. I am so glad the books are already written because I want to move right along to book 3.

Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
