Soldier of fortune Prophet Drews always worked alone—until Tom Boudreaux became his partner. But when Tom walked away three months ago, ostensibly to keep Prophet safe, Prophet learned the true meaning of being alone. Everyone knows that Prophet, a Navy SEAL turned CIA spook turned mercenary, can look after himself. Which means he must’ve driven his lover away.

Even with half a world between them, Prophet can’t get the man out of his head. Maybe that’s why he’s in New Orleans in the middle of a hurricane, protecting Tom’s aunt. But the only looter around is Tom, bursting back into Prophet’s life. It turns out that Prophet’s been stuck in Tom’s head—and heart—too.

Their explosive reunion gets even hotter when Tom is arrested for murder. As they fight to clear his name, they delve deep into his past, finding enemies among everyone they meet. Staying alive in such a dangerous world is hard enough, but they soon discover that fighting to stay together is the most difficult thing they’ve ever done.

Story Review:

Oh Holy Hotness Batman this story was off the charts sexy and full of even more yummy goodness than the first. Tommy and Prophet, together, in the rain. Scorching.

Long Time Gone advanced Tommy and Prophet’s journey and it was all that I could hope for. These men are perfect for each other and that was very evident in all aspects of this book. They fit sexual, intellectually, and their personalities drive the other to face their demons and be better. Tommy was who Prophet needed once he got his head out of his ass and let someone in. Prophet was who Tommy needed to get over his fears and accept that he was not his curse. These men are quickly becoming my favorite couple.

Again the plot was fantastic. Full of action, tension, and mystery. It was interesting and it highlighted Tommy and Prophet’s skills and their connection to each other. It brought out more facts about each man and moved them forward in their growth. I am loving watching their layers peel away and reveal more about their inner workings. This series is shaping up to be one of my all time favorites and I am so eager for the next title.

Narration Review:

The more I listen to this narrator the more I feel like he is just shy of being perfect for this series. His voices are fantastic, but I still feel like he misses the emotions sometimes. I think his accents are too steady and could be molded a bit to fluctuate with the emotion of the scenes. Other than that, I love listening to him read Tommy and Prophet to me.
