Special Agent Hugh Cranford, better known as Sport, is conducting an off-the-record investigation. He’s after Danny O’Sullivan, a spy rumored to have assisted in the ambush of Sport’s former SEAL team. Danny claims he and Sport are on the same side, and the real traitor is the man Sport is working for. But Danny is a master manipulator. He’s also the most seductive man Sport has ever met. Sport can’t help being attracted to him, but that doesn’t mean he’s willing to trust him.

In his quest to bring down a few highly-placed traitors in the US government, Danny O’Sullivan has been keeping tabs on Sport. When Sport comes looking for him, Danny decides to bring Sport in on his secret mission and into his bed. Sport may not trust Danny, but he wants him. As the two men risk their lives to complete Danny’s mission, they discover neither is as strong as they like to pretend.

My View:

Blimey! You don’t know who to trust in this book. It is full of manipulation, lies, deceit and slimy men doing unquestionable and treacherous things for money. Poor Sport seems to have got himself caught up in the middle of things but as he always did when he was in the marines he trusts what his gut tells him…that might just save his life.

With everyone now believing Jacksons story about the betrayal in the jungle that killed and maimed members of the team there are some seriously bad men to be caught and brought to justice. Sport is given some very peculiar orders from a man he is not sure he trusts to go after a spy called Danny O’Sullivan, who he is assured, played his part in the deception.

After the two men meet they agree that something about the case is not right and there are people working in the background to manipulate them but Sport is still not sure to what end and he certainly doesn’t trust Danny. With their lives on the line they agree to work together. As more information comes to light Sport is left stunned at the level of treachery and calls in his old friend Jackson for back up.

The three men work together, still not trusting, but they seem to be thwarted at every turn. When there seems to be only one solution left Danny takes it upon himself to play the martyr and walks away to try and finish the job by going dark. Sport isn’t sure about why this decision scares and hurts him so much or why the fact that Danny has gone leaves him feeling so alone. He is still not ready to face his feelings for the other man and allows anger to build up in their place.

This story is fast paced with surprises and twists and turns around every corner. The build up to these men getting together is sizzling. Just the looks that pass between them are smouldering and when they finally make it to the naked stage it is explosive. Danny can’t understand how he can so easily trust Sport when he hasn’t really trusted another human being for years.
