Blurb: Kaua’i Detective, Jake Jensen, has just settled into married life with his new wife Angela and he loves his job in the laid back island paradise. When he hears his brother Lane, an undercover LAPD cop, has gone missing while on assignment, he flies to the mainland to help locate him.
Jake immediately rubs Lane’s partner Brennan the wrong way. Brennan has no need of his help, and he fears his intrusion will put Lane in even more jeopardy. Jake is not easily swayed when it comes to protecting family and when Bren finally realizes he’s not going to be able to shake the tenacious detective, the men vow to find a way to work together.
As Jake plunges into the unfamiliar world where Lane’s gone undercover, from the biker bars of the Inland Empire to the gay bars of West Hollywood, he uncovers evidence that perhaps Lane has more secrets than he’s been prepared to face.
With unforeseen danger lurking around every corner, Brennan and Jake form an uncommon brotherhood with one goal, taking down the bad guys… while getting Lane out alive.

Review: Jake’s brother Lane is a detective in the states and goes missing while on a case. Jake travels to the US from Hawaii to help find him despite what Lane’s partner Brennan thinks. They discover a link between a previous case of Jake’s and the one Link and Brennan are working on.
The clock is ticking as the two men hope to find Lane before his time runs out for good.
Action packed and highly addictive this is a non stop edge of your seat thriller that will grab your attention from start to finish as clues and secrets are revealed that lead Brennan and Jake on dangerous adventures as they try to find Lane as soon as possible and pray for the best.
I loved all the characters as they all life to the story. There is no sex in this story but it did not need the added distraction of an overabundance of them as is in most other books in the genre. The reader was able to focus on the facts and investigation of the whereabouts of Lane and the danger. I myself enjoyed this story immensely.
