Blurb: Gunrunner Pablo Castillo has cemented his reputation in the gun trade as callous and cold-hearted. Personal feelings no longer matter, not with everyone out to make him a sacrifice on their way to the top. He remains untouchable, until a meeting with a rival gang leader and a new deal brings him face-to-face with temptation.
Dev is the right hand to a sadistic bastard out for blood and glory. He hides his true feelings of distaste for his boss, not the least of his many secrets. He could’ve sworn those secrets were safe, but after meeting Pablo he’s not so sure. The two men come together in a heated affair neither can deny, battling themselves, each other and a deadly enemy bent on spilling blood. Pablo and Dev will have to stick together or walk away from a love neither man expected to find. The choice should be simple. It never is.
Reader Advisory: Contains brief scenes of gang-related violence.

Review: Pablo has taken over Los P, a gang in Brooklyn that is mostly gunrunning. He meets with one of his adversary’s that wants to buy guns from only them. During this meeting, he meets York’s new right hand man and can’t get him out of his head. He has to keep his sex-life a secret, because of being a gang-leader and he has been hurt in the past and doesn’t feel his heart is his own to give.
Dev has secrets of his own and knows for many reasons he should not pursue Pablo, but he just can’t help himself. He knows that it’s a relationship doomed to fail and the fact that Pablo pushes him away makes it more appealing.
This is book two in this series. I had read the third first and in my opinion if I had not, this one would have been harder to follow. Syren’s appearance in this one really stemmed from a scene in the third. That if you didn’t know that story I think you might have really been stumped, and you would have no idea about the other man Pablo was pining for. HOWEVER, this is a lovey story on its own. I love how in this one, it isn’t so cut and dry or easy for these two. I love how Pablo pushes away and keeps telling Dev he is just a thing. I liked not liking Pablo so much and having to form a relationship with him myself. But, then again, I am a sucker for the bad-boys. I loved Dev’s determination though I don’t think I’d go through half the hell Pablo put him through and wow was the sex smoking! This is a great series and I cannot wait for the next one!
Recommendation: I do recommend you read book one and Three first for better understanding and enjoyment on this one. If you love a deep heartfelt love story, especially where one man is in love with someone else, between cops and criminals, gunrunners, gangs, undercover agents, drama, suspense, and very hot mansex, this is necessary.
