Sometimes a guy needs a break. Carroll Weir got one--but it wasn't what he expected.
All he dreams of is escaping dreary, damp Skagit, WA, for a warmer climate. Instead, Federal Investigator Carroll Weir is assigned to a cross-agency case involving geoduck smugglers and a very dead Fish and Wildlife Detective.
Sterling Bailey, the regular bartender at the Loft, likes to think of his customers and employees as family since he doesn’t have one of his own. Exhausted and tense, Carroll Weir wanders in one night and one thing leads to another. All in a night’s work, right?
Who murdered Fish and Wildlife Detective Peter Krystad? Does the killer have Weir in his sights? Things begin to heat up between them but Sterling and Weir will have to move past their personal history in order to change the course of their future.
The spark burning between them is hot enough to scald unless they’re careful somebody’s going to get burned.
*HEA No cliffhanger
*Intended for a mature audience, 18+
Christelle's rating :
First time I read from this author and I picked up this one as it looked like the kind of story I would enjoy : a mystery MM Romance. Even if it is part of a series, I had no trouble following the book so yes, it can be read as a standalone, and this story kept me enough engaged that I’m thinking about picking up other instalments.
Carroll Weir, FBI Agent, is a loner and not pleased to have to stay longer than anticipated in Skagitt on temporary assignment, and he’s even more unhappy that he’s just been badly injured in a car accident, having no choice but to depend on somebody. And this somebody turns out to be Sterling, a bartender he recently met.
Sterling, trying to buy the bar he manages, is a loner but does everything he can to be close to his teenage sister, Raven. Having to care for Carroll is not ideal, but better make the best of the situation.
Both know their flaws and deeply starve for giving and receiving affection. With or despite their close proximity and own ordeals, their no-string-attached relationship slowly becomes much, much more.
Family issues, commitment issues, an investigation in the back were nicely intertwined into this sexy and hot romance at a pace I appreciated. And of course, I got my HEA, that Carroll and Sterling needed and deserved.
