Blurb: Simon McLeod was a promising young naval captain before pirates attacked his ship and CIA agents forced him to fake his death and join their ranks. Since that horrible night, Simon has focused on finding the men responsible for ending his career. He’s close now, but he needs help from the man he loves. That’s a problem because Edgar is straight, has no idea how Simon feels, and threatened to strangle him the last time they were together.
For years Edgar used his medical expertise to patch Simon up after ill-advised missions. Ultimately, watching Simon self-destruct became too painful and Edgar told Simon not to come running to him anymore. But when Simon shows up on Edgar’s doorstep covered in blood, Edgar can’t turn him away. He also can’t fight the feelings he has for Simon, feelings that go way beyond friendship.
Neither man thought he’d ever truly be happy again, but if they can survive a final dangerous mission, they might be able to prove themselves wrong.

Review: Hot damn you have men in uniforms, and the best is they are Navy Seals. Each book in the Unexpected collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Each story is well written, with characters that not only draw you in, but captivate your heart. You can usually tell when someone writes with their feelings and not just for money, this is one of those types of books. Now it was not perfect, however it did not take away from the story.
Simon had once been a sexy naval captain, that is until a group of men attacked his ship. Now he wanted paybacks. He had been forced to change his identity and to fake his death. He was also forced to work for the CIA. A job he had not wanted. He had wanted to be in the Navy. He wanted to find those men and make them pay.
He also wanted Edgar.
Edgar had always thought he would stay friends with Simon but things always come to an end. Or so he thought. When Simon showed up bloody once more well things change even more. Guess he isn’t as straight as we assumed. He has the hots for his teammate. He had told Simon earlier that he wanted him to stop showing up. It wasn’t the reason he gave though, it showed that he was growing in Edgar’s heart just a bit more.
This was full of suspense, captivating and very hot little love story that has some pain in it that will break your heart. Now I do not much care for endings that are not really an ending at all. It drives me nuts and sometimes it does the exact opposite of what an author truly wants. If I am left hanging I usually lose interest in the series real fast. Now I am not sure of this series so we will see how the next book ends.
This was a fantastic story that I loved to read. It captivated me from the first moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me almost everything I could ask for in a story. Including some hot sex.
I would definitely recommend this and can’t wait for the next book.
