“Coming home from work to find my boyfriend banging our hairy, married landlord – in our bed – was bad enough. Discovering Jamie had also cleaned out my bank accounts made it officially the worst day of my life. I think I can be forgiven for wanting revenge, even if a few little laws (and possibly Jamie’s nose) got bent in the process.

“Fortunately, the law is on my side in the form of my oldest friend, Tony Gervase. I’ve tried to deny my attraction to the sexy trooper for years. After all, he made it clear long ago that he wasn’t interested in me that way. But if the hot encounter in his kitchen is any indication, he is now. At least the day is ending a whole lot better than it began….

“But the morning after, the Jamie situation goes from bad to seriously messed up. The jerk’s in more trouble than I could have imagined. And as it turns out, I don’t know Tony as well as I thought I did, either.

This book started at a pace and kept right on going. Mark finds his partner Jamie cheating on him and that he has cleared his bank accounts, so he seeks revenge. Oh boy does he take revenge. The only problem is by acting on impulse he could get himself into trouble. Mark turns to long time friend Tony who tries to talk sense into him. You can feel the attraction between Mark and Tony sizzle, Shannon Gunn portrays this excellently. The confrontations between Mark and Jamie are relayed perfectly. Shannon Gunn puts so much emotion into his narration it feels like I’m there watching it all unfold. I must admit I really wasn’t expecting the story to unravel the way it did and all in a matter of 48 hours.
In amongst the wreckage of Mark and Jamie’s relationship Tony finally tells Mark he’s been waiting for him. All the time Mark has thought Tony wasn’t interested. When they get together it is so so hot. I liked it so much I got the other audiobooks. Let’s see if LB Gregg and Shannon Gunn continue to be as good.
