When your past closes in, running isn’t always an option.
The jobs Marcus Lowry works for at Phoenix, Inc. Investigations are quick and easy, and they don’t give him the nightmares his days as a CIA operative did. That is, until he gets involved in a case that grabs him by the throat and won’t let go.
Cole Jacobs left behind his old life on the streets to make a name for himself rebuilding high-end and vintage cars and bikes. But when a stalker threatens to kill him—and to hurt anyone who stands in his way—his past closes in on him, and he’s not sure where to turn.
The last thing Marcus wants to do is take on a charity case, and to say that he and Cole don’t see eye to eye at first is putting things mildly. But when the first attempt on Cole’s life nearly kills them both, Marcus realizes that Cole is in real danger, and Cole is forced to reveal everything. Almost everything. Because Cole’s deepest secrets could destroy them both.

I loved Cole from the very beginning. It took me a bit to warm up to Marcus, but I believe that was the intention of the author because Cole also took some time to warm to him. When Cole finally warmed up, though, holy cow! Hot fireworks! The three bosses from Phoenix Inc. were excellent side characters in this new series.
This is my first SE Jakes book, so I haven’t yet read the Men of Honor series (keyword: yet), but I felt how much the author loved these three men and integrated them into the Cole-Marcus book. I look forward to reading the “sister” series to see how these three came about.
I already know I’ll be a fan for years to come and may also jump over and read books from the author’s other two pen names. I really loved this story. Thanks for making it so good, SE Jakes!
