After witnessing a mob hit, surgeon Jack Francisco is put into protective custody to keep him safe until he can testify. A hitman known only as D is blackmailed into killing Jack, but when he tracks him down, his weary conscience won't allow him to murder an innocent man. Finding in each other an unlikely ally, Jack and D are soon on the run from shadowy enemies.
Forced to work together to survive, the two men forge a bond that ripens into unexpected passion. Jack sees the wounded soul beneath D's cold, detached exterior, and D finds in Jack the person who can help him reclaim the man he once was. As the day of Jack's testimony approaches, he and D find themselves not only fighting for their lives...but also fighting for their future. A future together.

The New Standard for Books w/ Gay Main Characters
I instantly fell in love with both of the main characters. Honestly, this book has quite a bit of sex but it isn't sex for the sake of sex. It served a purpose and told a love story. So, absolutely. I would definitely listen to this again.
The most interesting would be the entire premise, which is a hired killer unable to kill his target and then they have to run away together. Honestly, it was a good time. The least is the amount of sex. I'd say there's maybe one or two too many sex scenes. Other than that, I'd say the sex was there for a reason.
I absolutely loved Alan Smith as a narrator. He embodied both perspectives with devotion and I was captivated.
I never listen or read a book in one sitting. It's just impossible for me. However, it was a book that I continued to listen to without needing to switch over to a different book for a change.
I'm going to say this, because I believe it whole-heartedly. This is THE STANDARD when it comes to books with gay main characters. There has not been one book I've read/listened to before or after that has come close to impact of how this book made me feel for the characters and story.
