When Greg Mitchelson’s home is torched and his employer killed, Greg fears it’s retribution for his past testimony against a notorious drug gang. Alone, with no money and only the clothes on his back, Greg turns to Colm Riordan, the Deputy US Marshall who’s protected Greg for the last 3 years. But Riordan doesn’t return Greg’s phone calls, and the local Marshal’s office refuses to help him.
In desperation, Greg goes on the run to Wyoming to find his brother, Mitch, whom he hasn’t seen in over a decade. As he reconnects with his brother, Riordan appears, searching for his missing witness. But Greg needs the answers to a lot of questions before he’ll trust Riordan again. Why didn’t he return Greg’s call? Is Riordan there to help Greg – or kill him?
Gregory Mitchelson is a witness in the WITSEC program. For 14 years, he was someone else, protected by the US Marshall office, he moved from town to town in order to stay safe and alive.
When his flat and job are burned to the ground, he has no other choice but to reach out to the only person he trusts. His Brother Mitch.
US Marshall Colm Riordam is in charge of Greg’s protection, so when he went missing, he flew through the country to find him and protect him.
Colm and Greg have known each other for the last 3 years. 3 years together, being protectee and protector when they only want to be together for good.
I liked this book, much better than the first one.
Gregory is a sweet man, he only wants to be left in peace, loved, and accepted for who he is. When he discovered that his father accepted Mitch’s homosexuality when he throws him on the street for being gay, it broke my heart. But Greg is strong, smart and when he has the chance to have his family back, he didn’t hesitate.
Colm is overprotective with Greg. He wants him in his life, bed and heart, and he’s ready to do anything to achieve his goal.
It was a pleasant reading, the team is present, we get news from Riley (aka my new wet dream), Si and Howie (My favorite couple), Mitch and Jake and of course, Moose, Carl and Wyatt.
I liked the story, the plot was good, too bad it wasn’t more developed, but it works for me like that.
Sue Brown has a real talent, her writing is good and fluid.
The only thing that bothered me was the absence of a connection between the characters. We knew that Greg and Colm are crazy about each other, but it wasn’t well described, it was just on the surface.
But, like I said, it was still a good book with adorable characters and a good plot.
It’s 3.5 OptimuMM for me, and I can’t wait for the next one, it better be Si and Howie, I’m dying to read about them.
***I would like to thank the author for the privilege and opportunity of reading this ARC. My review is an honest opinion of the book ***
