Story Overview:
Secrets and seduction make for an explosive combination in HelenKay Dimon’s edgy, thrilling new series, which kicks off with a novel about two men who can handle any threat—except the one posed by desire.
 
Fisher Braun knows how to keep a secret. As a covert paramilitary operative, his job—and his life—depends on it. He’s at the top of his game, ready for action and always in control. No enemy has ever brought him to his knees, but one lover has: Zachary Allen, the man currently sharing his bed. The perfect package of brains and brawn, Zach is someone worth coming home to, and Fisher hates keeping him in the dark about what he does. But the lies keep Zach safe. Until the day Fisher loses everything. . . .
 
Zachary Allen is no innocent civilian. Although he plays the tech geek, in reality he’s deep undercover for the CIA. In a horrible twist of fate, the criminal enterprise he’s infiltrated has set its sights on the man whose touch drives him wild. Zach would do anything for Fisher—except blow his own cover. Now, in order to save him, Zach must betray him first. And he needs Fisher to trust him with all his heart if they want to make it out alive.

My Review:
Seriously...talk about a book that fulfills my happy reading places...this is it. 

The book begins with Fisher coming home to his house to find that his secret boyfriend has been taken. The boyfriend is secret because Fisher is a top secret operative that no one knows is gay. His team doesn't know about his boyfriend. His boyfriend doesn't know about Fisher's secret life. Everything about Fisher is a lie, but someone has discovered the truth...about where he lives and exposes the vulnerability that he's involved with someone else. Someone that Fisher won't standby and let get hurt because of Fisher's job. 

But everything is not as it seems...throughout this entire book filled with tons of twists and turns. I LOVED THAT!

And wow, did I love these two guys. For Fisher, he's been deceived in the worst way, but he still can't hate Zach. Then there's Zach willing to give up absolutely everything to keep Fisher safe. So freaking good. The conflict was amazing in the middle of all these high-stakes spy-like scenarios which made this book so fabulous to read. 

I really did love it...although the story did lag a bit in the middle. The need to see what happened kept me voraciously reading through those parts just waiting to get to the "good stuff". I enjoyed the book. I loved both Fisher and Zach and the entire scenario that got them to this point. I loved Nathan and Seth, both other members from Fisher's team. Their little quips were hilarious and I loved how easily they accepted the "change" in Fisher's sexuality. 

While I didn't love every single minute of reading it, I would definitely reread the book again AND recommend it to others. I enjoyed it a lot. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
