Story Overview:
No dirty deed goes unnoticed in a seductive game of cat and mouse. But for Alec and Gaige, the wrong move could get them killed.

Alec Drummond didn’t make his billions by playing nice—or by playing much at all. When it comes to pleasure, Alec only has time for whatever’s quick and easy, which is exactly what he gets from his company’s hot new computer genius. But Gaige Owens isn’t some pushover. He pushes back, and it’s giving Alec a rush. The question is, could Gaige be the one who’s leaking trade secrets? Just to be safe, Alec keeps him close at hand . . . night and day.

Gaige never thought he’d roll over for a man like Alec again, but who could resist sex this mind-blowing? Then there’s the draw of Alec’s mysterious side: his cutthroat ambition, his covert CIA connections, and the murder in his past. For Gaige, a deeper look proves an irresistible temptation. But when Gaige and Alec are stripped of their defenses by an unseen danger, everything they don’t know could bring them closer together—or tear them apart. Only one thing is certain: Before it’s all over, someone’s going down.

My Review:
Wow, I am so excited about this new series. Everything about Gaige and Alec was amazingly good. OMG, so, so good!

When the story begins, it's hard to know what's going on. All that's obvious is that Gaige is being forced to break in someplace he doesn't want to be...it just happens to be the server room of Alec's company...and Alec catches him in the act. From there the two are forced into a partnership where neither one knows the full story of what exactly is going on...through no fault of their own. A CIA agent is pulling all the strings and the two of them bond over their hatred of him (Seth for those that are familiar with HKD's other m/m romantic suspense stories).

So, needless to say, neither Gaige nor Alec trusts the other. Add to that, they are both extremely intelligent, and I kind of fell in love with both of them. They've both been hurt. They don't trust easily. And they know that this entire situation is filled with lies. This isn't exactly the basis for a relationship. But they are stuck together and it becomes hard to resist each other. 

I had so much love for this story. Seriously, so much love. Gaige has this vulnerable side that just made me want to hug him. Alec doesn't take crap from anyone, but he lets Gaige get away with a lot just because he's intrigued.

And when I started writing this book, I saw there's a second book coming featuring Finn, Alec's brother. OMG, YES!! I'm ready to read it NOW! And here's my one complaint...why, oh why doesn't Loveswept bring out their books in print??? I want this one on my keeper shelf. 

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Definitely a favorite read from 2017.

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