Everyone knows that Prophet—former Navy SEAL, former CIA spook, full-time pain in the ass—works alone. But his boss at Extreme Escapes, Ltd. has just assigned Proph a new partner and a case haunted by ghosts from Proph’s past. Suddenly, he has to confront both head-on.

Tom Boudreaux—failed FBI agent, failed sheriff, full-time believer in bad luck—is wondering why the head of a private contracting firm has hunted him down to offer him a job. Still, he’s determined to succeed this time, despite being partnered with Prophet, EE’s most successful, lethal, and annoying operative, on a case that resurrects his own painful past.

Together, Prophet and Tom must find a way to take down killers in the dangerous world of underground cage matches while fighting their own dangerous attraction. When they find themselves caught in the crossfire, these two loners must trust each other and work together to escape their ghosts . . . or pay the price.

Story Review:

Catch a Ghost was a really great start to the Hell or High Water series. This book was all kinds of yummy goodness but the thing that really stood out was the way this story really laid the groundwork for Tommy and Prophet to grow as a couple and as individuals. The author set things up nicely to start giving the reader a deep look into Tommy and Prophet’s psych and what made then the men they are. But at the same time she did not give everything away. What was presented was just enough to start what looks to be a long and tumultuous journey to forever for these men.

I am so hooked. The plot was tension filled and action packed. The characters were interesting and broken and yet fantastically whole. The attraction and the pull between these men leapt off the page. Tommy and Prophet need each other yet they don’t and that is a fantastic line to watch them walk. I am eager for book 2 to see what is next for these men.

Narration Review:

This is my first experience with this narrator and I have to admit, I was unsure of him at first. His reading was harsh and sometimes missed the mark on the emotions, but his voices were fantastic and eventually this narration settled into a rhythm that worked for me.
