Publisher's Summary

"You're a hero every f--king day, Tate," I said softly. "Don't ever forget that." (Hawke)
Ex-Special Forces soldier Michael "Hawke" Hawkins has spent every day of the last 10 years waiting for the moment he would get to watch the life fade from the eyes of the men who brutally murdered his wife, but when he finally gets the break he's been waiting for, the trail leads him to someone he wasn't expecting.
After nearly two years of running, 24-year-old Tate Travers has become an expert at hiding...until the day a dangerous stranger shows up looking for vengeance and threatens to destroy the fragile life Tate has managed to build for himself and his five-year-old son. Except the life Tate has been struggling to hold on to started unraveling long before Hawke showed up looking for the same men Tate has been running from...his own father and older brother.
Retribution - it's all Hawke has wanted since the day he held his wife's hand as she took her last breath. And he won't give that up for anything or anyone...not even the tormented young man trying to give his little boy a better life. Because Tate is the only one who can lead Hawke to the men he's been searching for. And if it means forcing the young man to confront the past that nearly destroyed him, then so be it.
Only the last thing Hawke expects to feel is something besides the hatred that has driven him. And he definitely never expected to feel it for a man.
But when it comes down to choosing between the unwanted feelings Tate stirs in him and the revenge he's finally close enough to taste, will Hawke be able to give up the one thing that has kept him going for a second chance at a future he gave up on ever having?

Superb Perfection

I absolutely love Sloane Kennedy, her ability to take me into a story and make me feel... everything that her characters do is an amazing emotional journey. I really loved this story and it was great getting to know Tate and Hawke on a deeper level.
This is actually the first narrated book I have ever listened to and it was fantastic! I really enjoyed Joel Leslie's narration and how he brought a depth and life to the story that you just don't get when you read it yourself.
I definitely recommend giving this a listen to because you will definitely love it like I did!

Oh Sloan

Joel, first off, you rock. You bring life to each character. You're voice carries so much emotion that I feel every moment.
Sloan, I'm slowly buying all of your books on audible. I've read them and need them on audio with a fierce desperation. These men and all they go through to get their true love just rocks me to my core. Thank you for sharing your stories, I don't know how I could get through my existence without them.

Retributionis brilliant

I was given a free copy for a honest review but I've already brought and read the previous books and listened to them I would of definitely brought this. If you have read the books , you know how Sloane brings the characters to life and your living their lives through her but now through audible and Joel Leslie you land up feeling your sitting in the same room as them . I will definitely be keep buying these on audible even though I've got all her books.
