Devil’s Hour

(Zero Hour 02)
by

Aimee Nicole Walker

Devil’s hour, noun: the hour when the demon or devil who leads hell is at its strongest.

Born on the wrong side of the tracks, Royce Locke is no stranger to scrapping and fighting for the things he wants. What he desires most is Sawyer Key—his partner on the force and the man he’s falling in love with. After asking Sawyer to take a chance on him, Royce will need to back up his pretty words with fearless action instead of being his own worst enemy.

Someone is harassing the mayor of Savannah, and Locke and Key are tasked with finding out who. The investigation quickly takes a twisted turn, leading them to an enemy who thinks purification by fire is the only way to save the city. Scarier than The Purists’ elusiveness is their ability to turn public opinion in their favor, creating unrest and threatening anarchy by fanning flames and fear. When you play with fire, someone is bound to get burned.

When menace becomes murder, the two detectives will race the clock against the devil to save their beloved city from becoming a raging inferno. Royce will need to draw on his grit now more than ever if he hopes to realize the dreams that are finally within reach. The rag is lit, the Molotov cocktail is tossed, and the zero hour is upon them. Challenge received and accepted.

Devil’s Hour is the second book in the Zero Hour series, which follows Locke and Key’s investigations and evolving relationship. This is a series that must be read in order. Devil’s Hour has a happy-for-now ending with no cliffhanger. It contains mature language and sexual content intended for adults 18 and older.

Review: I did a happy dance when I heard the second book is being released, since I enjoyed the first so much.

It’s as good, nerve-wracking and scorching hot as the first one but the differences made it even more engaging story.

It’s from Royce’s POV and I was surprised at how much I loved it, since honestly, in the first book Royce came off as a bit of a jerk. Now however, we get to see just how much he loves Sawyer and what is it that makes him tick. It’s obvious how much Sawyer presence in his life changed him for the better, since he is calmer and more confident. It makes him better at his job and his relationship with Sawyer moves by leaps and bounds. It’s gorgeous story!

Unlike the first one, Devil’s hour has only one case they are working on, in addition to continuing investigation in Royce’s first partner. They build the case slowly as leads are scarce on the ground, and it ends up overlapping with Royce’s investigation into partner’s suicide. The ending is a bit cliffhanger-ish in that respect, I’m itching to know what will happen next!

But as for the current case and maybe more importantly, the relationship between two men it ends in a good spot. They are solid. They were solid through the book. We already knew Sawyer was crazy for Royce, now we realize Royce is returning his feelings. The pace is excellent and the story isn’t slacking on either romantic or suspense plot. The story culminates in heart stopping end.

Sign me up for the next one!

Review: For me, A Forced Silence is a simple pleasure (in a totally good way) because it is basically everything that I am a sucker for in a romance. The narration by Scott R Smith was also great too and made me not want to stop listening. More than anything, I can’t wait to get more into this series (book 2 released by Dreamspinner 29 August 2016) – either reading or audio, I think I could easily enjoy this book either way.

The story follows Adam, a paramedic, and Sam, a forensic pathologist, who cross paths again after a number of years. They knew each other in high school, when Adam became friend with Sam’s then best friend, Mason. It is a complicated relationship which I wish that there was more explanation – or some type of resolution concerning the only ever mentioned and homophobic Mason. For this reason Sam is reticent when it comes to Adam. Not only did he make his life hell but Adam also insists on using the nickname “Dex” when Sam really and truly hates that Dexter is his real name.

The plot line is straight forward, and if you’ve read the blurb there is really no surprise. The mystery and murder investigation itself wasn’t overly suspenseful, it was more background noise and the romance between Sam and Adam was at the forefront of the entire story. Still, it mystery aspect did work well woven in with the romance. The only thing that we don’t really get a feel for in the blurb is fall out in the end. Of course, something needs to be a surprise, I suppose.

The ending is a HEA and just makes me smile, because If you like your paramedics, etc. and are a complete sucker for enemies to lovers this will be a book you will easily enjoy. It’s a real easy listen if you just need something in the background as you work or if you’re commuting.

I really would love to hear the story for Sam’s best friend, Ford, who is there constantly for Sam throughout the book.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is the first book by this author that I have read and let me tell you, that she will be on my auto buy list. Well she will be as long as her stories don’t have girly parts in them. I always did love a man in a uniform. Something so damn sexy about them, even when their uniforms don’t do them justice.

This story just caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I love how well-rounded the guys and their story was. Although Sam is a bit wimpy in my eyes, he still rocked it. Sam has a crush on an old classmate, but he also hated him with a passion. In school the man did nothing but make it impossible to like him. They shared one friend, and it would seem a jealous streak was showing even then. Sam had not realized though that Adam was only reacting that way because he liked Sam also.

Adam was certain that if he came out gay he would most certainly lose his job. He just had not expected for Sam to end things between them so that Adam could be happy. Too bad it was not working, the man was anything but happy.

Sam his whole life thought that Adam was straight, but to find out that he wasn’t and why he hid, made it a hard decision. Behind doors they rock all night long, but then day light hits and Adam is a scare little boy, who needs to make a decision.

Now I loved this story but there is a big cliff hanger at the end, a teaser of more death. The guys have a dead body, a man in jail and it would seem more questions unanswered. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.

This is one story that will be read more than once.
