Blurb: Lennox Freeman (Free) is one of the best hackers in the world which has caused him to spend most of his life on the run. Never able to put down roots, he couldn’t trust anyone not to take advantage of him, even his own family. If it wasn’t for his best friend, Tech, shielding him, Free’s father would’ve sold him and his skills to the highest bidding crime family when he was still a student at MIT. Free owed Tech his life; so when his friend called for him to come to Atlanta to work with him, he couldn’t say no. However, he wasn’t expecting the overprotective group of detectives that made up Atlanta PD’s most notorious task force. And he certainly wasn’t prepared for the large-and-in-charge SWAT Captain that was responsible for their safety.
Ivan Hart has lived and bled one creed all of his life: To Serve and Protect. His intense focus and determination in law enforcement has led him to finally commanding his own team. He’d worked hard to put together a squad of badasses capable of backing up a very dangerous team of detectives. Being God and Day’s last line of defense came with a lot of responsibility that he took very seriously.
After his divorce was final Hart turned right around and remarried his job. He had his good friends there in the office with him every day, so it was easier to ignore the few quiet hours he spent at home alone each night. He’d settled well into his new routine and was comfortable with it. Then God decided to disrupt everything by hiring another tech specialist for his department. A man whose brains, trendy looks, and voice would leave Hart tongue-tied and captivated at their first introduction.
Free quickly awakens a passion in Hart that he long thought was dead. An attraction he didn’t know existed. He couldn’t fathom that the sexy cyber genius could be interested in an over-sized, big-bearded brute that served criminals the bottom line for a living. No matter what his best friend, God said.
A future with Hart could be potentially dangerous and often times full of terrifyingly close calls; but little did he know that so could falling for the most hunted hacker in the world. All Lennox Freeman wants in life is security, love and protection… Hart had all that to give and more.
Review: Len has spent most of his time on the run. His best friend Tech had saved his butt on many occasions and helped him rescue his mom. Tech had even gotten in trouble with the FBI for some of it. Now here they were working for SWAT. With Len being one of the top hackers in the world, he usually got the job done. The only thing he truly wanted was the Captain, Ivan.
Ivan had gotten out of a nasty marriage with barely the tip of his fingers, and let me say she was a piece of work. He didn’t have much of a self esteem but he was working on it. However his eyes were on a sexy young man that was their tech expert. Now he just had to get the guts to tell him, or at least make a move.
First off a guy as big as Ivan who is also a swat leader should have the balls to tell his ex off. The way this was told the man came off as a pushover. Also it just wasn’t believable with Len and his past, being even close to SWAT. The story plot was amazing, but the story itself was drawn out and dull in parts. It had more descriptive junk added in that was not needed. At first I put it down to them getting to know each other and getting the nerve to even hit on each other. But the way it was told was putting me to sleep in parts. Now that is just me.
On the good side, you get action and lots of it. Car chases, shoot outs, and so much more in this book. The guys were great together and complimented each other. I will admit that I liked Len more, because Ivan just didn’t have the strength he should have had. He showed the strength when it come to backing his men, saving people and even when Len had been in trouble. However he was a pushover with the other females and his ex. Not a good sign for me. I liked the secondary characters quite a bit and enjoyed their banter.
Overall I enjoyed the story and the action. It was not one of my favorites but it was pretty good. I can’t say that it will be read more than once but it will be one that will be staying in my library. I did have fun reading it and look forward to seeing what this author has coming next.
