Time to go Dark: Free Falling (Extreme Escapes, Ltd) By: SE Jakes Narrated by: Dorian Bane



Sometimes falling in love is the most dangerous thing of all.
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.



IMHO this is not a standalone novel.  If I hadn’t been reading along in the Hell or High Water Series I think I would have been very confused.  As it stands, this is a very cute, super funny and sexy side story about some characters that Tom and Proph run with.

I wish I knew if this was a series that is over, because I have a hard time recommending it to people as it is.  The author literally left us all hanging and – I don’t know why – so I don’t want to be mad at her – but… I kinda am mad at her.

She’s an amazing writer with fantastic characters and plot devices but she’s lousy at keeping her readership happy.


Dorian Bane did a nice job with the narration – these guys are gritty and his voice fits that blue collar feel.  


Hard to give this a recommendation – but… it is really good so…
