Publisher's Summary

You don't greet your new boss dressed like an underage rent boy. But when Jack Horwood - ace hacker and ex-MI6 operative - opens the door to Gareth Flynn, he's too busy to worry over details like that. And anyway, his potential new boss is his former commanding officer - the same guy Jack has had a crush on since he was 17. So he should understand, right?
When he applied for the job in Nancarrow Mining's corporate security division, Jack had hoped for peaceful days repelling cyber-attacks. Maybe a bit of corporate espionage on the side. His plans didn't include rescuing abused children, hunting pimps, or dealing with his overly protective and hot-as-hell boss, Gareth Flynn.
Walking away is not an option. Jack never takes the easy way out. More than that, meeting Gareth raises old ghosts that Jack needs to put to rest. Rescuing kids. Taking risks. Saving the day. Jack can do all that - but deciding what to do about his attraction to Gareth isn't the sort of cloak-and-dagger game Jack plays well. Yet Gareth, strong and smart and always on hand when needed, might be Jack's salvation.

Truly. Truly Aweful

A poorly written story outshone by the worst narration I have heard yet. I have no idea how this got positive reviews. Please don't.

Intense and gripping.

Narration: If it weren't for the long pauses between section breaks (audio editing stylistic I think) I'd have said this was a perfect narration. Fox Ballard beautifully voiced all the characters, and this book has quite a few important secondary characters so you can't get away with a job-lot voice for them. My only quibble was that the audio had too long pauses between what are the sectional breaks in the written book... I suspect an editing stylistic choice and shoĊ•tening those would be that last piece required for me to rate this 5 stars across the board.


For the story: Given the subject matter I should not have been able to read this, let alone read it in one sitting. The writing is gritty, intense, and poignant. Jack and Gareth are amazing.
I will warn any that the plot covers pedophilia and the selling of young boys. This is not a story of fluffy bunnies and butterflies but the subject matter is treated (at least in my opinion) with a high degree of tact; this is not written to titilate but does not ignore the subject matter nor gloss over it.
I like that Jack is also smart in a way that I understand. He's believeable as a man with mad skills.
I'm off to read the sequel.
