Jason Hamilton has been in love with his baby brother for as long as he can remember. He made it a point to pamper and protect him all his life. After the death of their parents, they’ve grown accustomed to each others love, relying on no one else but themselves. So, when eighteen year old Colton gets kidnapped from his college dorm, Jason will do anything to get him back.

Devyn Taylor has had a crush on Colton Hamilton for years. But being Jason’s friend he never had the guts to actually go ahead with what he wanted. But no matter how much he’s tried Devyn can’t seem to forget about Colton. So when some friends who got badly burned by Jason, devise a plan to kidnap his brother, Devyn realizes this is his one and only chance to get Colton.

The problem?

Colton loves his brother and isn’t even willing to give Devyn a shot.
And Devyn didn’t realize how sadistic his so-called friends are and just how serious things are about to get.

My View:

Two men who love each other…..

Deeply. Senselessly. Immeasurably.

Holy hell. Just when you think Kol Anderson has gone as dark and deep as he can up he pops with a whole new level of terror.

This is the story of Jason and Colton. They are brothers. They love each other. They have sex with each other. It’s not easy for them – Jason is in charge of the family business alongside his uncle after his parents died. The business is not strictly legal and people interfering with it tend to die quickly but we don’t really learn a lot about it in this instalment.

Jason and Colton are very different. Jason is very much the older sibling with a take charge attitude and a dangerous determination to keep his younger brother safe. He has seen and done things to protect what is left of his family that he doesn’t discuss or admit to Colton but you cross him at your own peril.

If someone wanted to hurt Jason the best way to do it would be through Colton and that is exactly what happens. Colton is kidnapped and if you can imagine the worst of Kol with a bit more added for shits and giggles that is what Colton has to survive. Surprisingly Colton proves to be much more resilient than you would expect but what the long term affects will be is anyone’s guess. As Colton is tortured Jason is slowly losing his mind – as his torture is to see everything they do to the man he loves.

The writing, as is always the case with Kol, gripping and vivid. This is a real page turner even if you are scared of what the ending may bring. I hadn’t realised when I picked this up for review that it’s the first of a three part series and without adding any pressure I really hope we see the next two parts quickly as this was left with so many loose ends.

What happens next? Will Colton live? Will he forgive Jason?
