Blurb: At 38, Zavier “Cade” McCade has it all: a military career he can be proud of, a successful business, and a close knit group of family and friends. A former Army Special Forces Captain, Cade leaves the military to create Custos Securities, a burgeoning protection agency that provides unparalleled security for both civilians and corporations across the U.S.

After a string of disastrous relationships—and a narrow escape from an abusive partner—Braden Cross is finally putting his past to rest. Combining both his passion for baking and his knack for business, Braden owns the Sugar n’ Spice Café with his best friend who concocts exotic coffees and teas that pair perfectly with his decadent confections.

When a stalker sets his sights on Braden, the young pastry chef’s world is turned upside down. More frightened than he cares to admit, and not knowing where to turn, Braden is relieved when Cade steps in to offer his protection. Caught up in a maelstrom of threats, break-ins, and vandalism, the two draw closer together. Braden eventually realizes that he can trust Cade with his life, but he finds himself wondering… can he trust him with his heart?

Review: Zavier McCade is ready to settle down with his forever love. Unfortunately, he hasn’t met the man yet.

What starts off as a quick visit to visit family turns into the chance meeting of Cade’s forever guy. And while there were elements of insta-love, Luna David made me wait for any real sheet time.

Now, as for the suspense portion of this book. LOVED it. Cade’s man, Bradon has a stalker. He didn’t take the notes that just appeared seriously at first, but they have taken on an increasingly sinister tone. It’s not until his best friend and business partner finds out, that Custos Securities gets involved.

I can’t say with element was more prominent, the romance or the mystery. Luna David did an amazing job weaving them so tightly together. Cade basically has to do double duty. He works hard to get Bradon to trust him, while calling in his team to protect the man as the stalker get bolder.

I also loved the secondary characters. Bradon’s best friend is a protective little thing. Cade’s best friend is altogether too sexy for his own good. And don’t get me started on Bradon’s Nana. I want to be just like her when I grow up.

Now for my one little complaint. The ending sucked…major. Not in a bad way, but in a Harry Potter kind of way. Meaning, this crisis is over, but the end is still not there.

So, yes…I did almost throw my Kindle, but my husband was sitting next to me, and I haven’t finished paying for it yet.

And for the record, I will be pre-ordering the next book in this series, the second it is available.

Highly recommending.
