Free Falling by: SE Jakes
Blue is a thief who lives for adrenaline and danger. And when he meets Mick, a mercenary, he’s hit with a buzz of attraction like the rush of a high-rise job without a safety rope. But after making plans to get together, Mick leaves him hanging, and Blue vows never again.
A year later, Mick watches helplessly as Blue stumbles into the middle of one of Mick’s jobs. Risking his cover and their lives, Mick saves Blue and cares for him as he recuperates, but neither man has any idea how to handle the intimacy this forces them into.
Once Blue is safe, Mick redoubles his efforts to take down the drug lord responsible—and disappears. Blue goes after him, determined to return the favor and rescue the man he loves, no matter the cost.
4 out of 5 stars
WARNING: This book is male/male and may not be everyone’s cup of tea (or coffee) 🙂
This book drew me in right from the beginning. Blue is this enigma that just makes you fall in love with his sarcasm and tenacity. The chemistry between him and Mick is so strong and pure. However, right out of the gate, you know they won’t use the “L word” lightly. Mick and Blue face trials that will test their faith in one another. With a bad guy that is a bit cliche but still a valuable part of the story and a wise cracking side character that is a mystery itself, this book was a fun adventure.
The reason this book received only four stars is because I felt that it was too short. Now I know that not every character needs a 300 page novel to tell his/her story, but I would have loved to see more of Mick and Blue’s relationship. I felt the progression of the story line went well; I just wanted to know more about these people. However, the action scenes were were excellently written and the sex scenes were extremely hot but tastefully done. All around a phenomenal book and I cannot wait to read more from this author.
I purchased this book for myself and my review is my own opinions. The description and picture were found on SE Jakes website/ blog page which can be found by clicking on the image.
