There’s nothing like being blackmailed by a dead man to really bring a group of cons together. And what a group we are: a hacker, a thief, a con artist, a thug, and a Federal agent with an axe to grind. The deal is simple, we do the jobs and Charlie’s lawyer wipes the slate clean for each of us, one at a time.

Since job number one calls for some muscle, it looks like I’m up first. I’m Steele Alvarez, ex-Special Forces Close Protection Specialist (aka, a bodyguard for some not so nice guys).

After learning what the job is — taking down a seemingly untouchable senator with a penchant for beating up young male prostitutes — I’m in. No questions. A bullet ought to do the trick.

Then I met Senator Harlan’s latest victim: Breck Pfeiffer, the gorgeous hooker with a heart of gold and the soul of a fighter. One look at him and I’m gone. That kid laid me out harder than any punch ever did. I’ll do anything to protect Breck, even kill for him. But Breck doesn’t want the senator dead, he wants vengeance.

If we’re going to find a way to bring down the slimebag and get the blackest mark on my record erased, I’m going to need all the help I can get.

Like it or not, we’re all in this together.

An awesome collection of ragtag, unique and colorful characters!

Such great humor and wit, make up this unusual read. Not what I expected but was still so good. I loved these characters, their unique stories, and connections. A very one of a kind creation!

I loved Steele and Breck. Their connection was hot from the start and there back and forth was hilarious. I felt they worked so well together and I loved the instant connection and Steele’s need to drive Breck’s twin brother crazy. It makes for great reading! I also loved Danny. He’s just so sweet, cute and funny and I know there is more to his story.

I felt each character had something interesting to add to this collection of “criminals, but not really” and this was a great read setting up the characters and the way they are being “forced” together by their deceased friend/enemy/arch-nemesis. Each character is unique and holds an air of mystery. This story follows Breck & Steele but I’m looking forward to unfolding all the others. Danny’s up next!

My only comment on the narration was that I don’t know who’s who and while each narrator added different tones and dialects for each character they didn’t match with each other narration. So by one narrator, narrated Breck with a softer spoken and little bit sweeter voice and then the other narrator spoke Breck with a gruff raspy voice, so it took a bit to get the story straight and remember who was who, especially with so many different characters.

There’s nothing like being blackmailed by a dead man to really bring a group of cons together. The deal is simple, we do the jobs and Charlie’s lawyer wipes the slate clean for each of us, one at a time.

Job number two lands right in my lap. I’m Bond. Wesley Bond. (I can’t resist saying it that way. Blame my dad, if you can find him.) You could call me a hacker. I redistribute wealth – moving it from rich slimebags to poorer but infinitely more deserving people – and make a tidy profit as I do. My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to bring down some modern-day slave traders.

With the life of the one person in this world I love on the line, I can’t afford any screw-ups or distractions. Unfortunately, my biggest distraction is my biggest asset – Danny Monroe. Danny is a leftover complication from our first job. He’s a smart, funny, gorgeous ex-prostitute, who can’t seem to keep his clothes on. I can’t seem to keep my mouth shut around him. But I need a fake boyfriend, and Danny is the only option.

We don’t know who the bad guy is; we have no idea how to prove anything. If I’m going to do this, I’m going to need all the help I can get. Like it or not, we’re all in this together.

I love Danny & Bond, Wesley Bond!!

The story continues and we’re treated to more from the adorable Danny and the socially awkward Wes. They played off each other in book one and were both, hot and cold as the story went on. Add in a new “case” from Charlie and the mysterious “Interested Party” and Wes and Danny are posing as boyfriends! Of course, not everything goes to plan and Danny and Wes can no longer fight their connection and give in to what they want, which quickly turns into much more than either of them expected. Now add in the thrill and danger of the case they’re on, the unfortunate inconvenience of coms being turned on at inopportune times and the whole team posing in unique situations and “uniforms” and you’ve got hilarity mixed with a little suspense and a whole lot of steam! I loved it and can’t wait to see more from this unique 5 now 7-some! I’m looking forward to seeing what Ridge has in store for him and his case, up next!!
