My rating: 5 of 5 stars
NEVER SAY NEVER is book two in the Sniper 1 Security series and is an erotic, M/M standalone. Although there’s recurring characters from book one, which I haven’t read yet (shame on me!), I had no problems jumping into book two.
Ryan Trexler (aka. RT) is next in line to take over the family security and protection business. He carries a lot on his shoulders so when an important job comes up, he knows he can’t fail at nabbing the bad guy. RT’s employee and friend, Zachariah (aka. Z), goes in with RT undercover…as his lover! But their deep connection isn’t just for cover.
RT and Z had the best opposites attraction! RT was so serious and somber. He’s the guy behind the desk, the kind who’s comfortable in a suit, though he’s no lightweight and is very hands on (no pun intended!). Z was more like the super cute class clown, friendly and sweet, more comfortable in jeans and tees. They’d been attracted to each other for years but never did anything about until this assignment had them working so close together. And let me tell you, their “closeness” was HOT as hell! But Rt and Z’s relationship was so much more than just sex. They also had years of friendship to build on.
The story has the perfect amount of suspense threading through it. It’s not crazy over the top, just enough to keep me on my toes! That added with the family dynamics of both Z and RT plus their sizzling chemistry had me falling in LOVE with this book! I adored and admired how open they both were with their sexuality as well as how supportive their families were.
This one’s going on my READ AGAIN SHELF (plus, I’m lucky enough to have a signed copy, sqeee!)! Told from dual POVs with a few short chapters from the bad guy and a sticky sweet ending that’ll make you SWOON!
Ryan Trexler has devoted his entire life to his family’s security business. And now that he’s slated to take over the reins for the company, RT knows that his life is only going to get more complicated. Add in the fact that he’s lusting over one of the men who works for him and RT knows that there are some serious tough times ahead. Zachariah Tavoularis-nicknamed Z-has been employed by Sniper 1 Security for a decade. Despite being known as the most loyal enforcer outside of family, Z also has a reputation of being quite the playboy, though that was based more on rumor than fact. When an assignment comes up that forces the two of them to work together, Z knows it’s time to show RT he’s not the man he thinks he is. Can they complete the mission, despite the fact that it puts them in a tenuous situation, bringing them closer than either of them ever expected? And will Z allow RT to convince him that they can never be together, no matter how much they both want it?
