From the blurb:
After barely surviving a shootout in New Orleans, Sidewinder medic Kelly Abbott has to suffer through a month of recovery before he can return home to Colorado. He’s not surprised when fellow Sidewinder Nick O’Flaherty stays with him in New Orleans. Nor is he surprised when Nick travels home with him to help him get back on his feet—after all, years on the same Marine Force Recon team bonded the men in ways that only bleeding for a brother can. He’s very surprised, though, when Nick humors his moment of curiosity and kisses him.
Nick knows all of Kelly’s quirks and caprices, so the kiss was a low-risk move on his part . . . or so he thought. But what should’ve been a simple moment unleashes a flood of confusing emotions and urges that neither man is prepared to address.
Now, Kelly and Nick must figure out what they mean to each other—friends and brothers in arms, or something even deeper?—before the past can come back to ruin their tenuous future.
Some times you feel like a book with intense character development and an intricate plot that takes you into the psyche of the main characters in a deep, fundamental way.
This is not that book.
It has been about two years since I last read a Cut & Run-series book, and I seriously forgot how incredibly HOT Abigail Roux's writing could be. Like EXTREMELY hot.
Do you need to know all about the Cut & Run characters to really appreciate this book? I think so. It is billed as its own series, but I honestly think you'd be lost without some background knowledge of the characters. But do I think you'd still find this book super hot, even if you didn't know the first thing about who was who? YES.
Shock & Awe is a GFY/OFY story with butt virgin who loves to get it on. Need I say more?!?!?! I mean, the story is more than just sex... but not by much. There are no big plot developments. In fact, nothing really happens during the story aside from a couple little things. The whole thing mostly takes places in the bedroom and you'll be getting NO complaints from me!!
In terms of the audiobook, the narrator, Brock Thompson, did a very fine job. Sure, I had a little trouble differentiating between the two guys' voices, but he had a sexy-as-hell voice, and I'd listen to him again and again.
The whole book was a reminder to me as to why I kept coming back to Abigail Roux, and why she is such a powerhouse in the world of M/M.
