This is book 2 in the I.N.E.T. series and is not a stand alone novel.
Rob ‘Zep’ Zepple loved working for INET and was never afraid to go undercover to bust the drug dealers who polluted the world. In fact, there was only one thing, one person, who scared him senseless. That was Spider, the bully from his youth.
Spider started working for ATF after graduating college, but he still managed to keep tabs on the man he bullied since they were kids in grade school. There wasn’t a single day that Spider didn’t regret what he’d done to Rob Zepple when they were younger.
When they are thrown together again to back up one of Zep’s coworkers, Spider makes it his goal to convince Zep that he’s a changed man.
But for that to happen, Zep must overcome his fear and sometimes there is a good reason to be afraid.
This book contains M/M sexual situations and is intended for readers of legal age in the country in which they reside.
I loved the first book in this series which was based on two very strong characters – Knight and Slade. Spider and Zep who feature in this story didn’t have quite the same charisma. The I.N.E.T team has gone undercover to try and close a current investigation and to ensure the safe withdrawal of another agent who has been undercover for the last two years inside a notorious motorcycle gang.
The investigation kind of fades into the background in this one as Spider and Zep deal with some pretty intense feelings and fear – they have a chequered history and have spent years avoiding each other and as avoidance is no longer possible a lot of old wounds are opened up. It’s interesting to see how miscommunication in their actions has impacted on who they are today and how they still feel about each other. When their misunderstandings are dealt with things heat up and one thing Brenda excels at is giving her MC’s pretty spectacular and very hot sex lives!
As always with this author the men here are tough and take no prisoners. This team of men work well and play well together and they have each other’s backs at the most critical times. My only criticism is that it would have benefited from a further proofread to clear up the simple errors. This book sets up the two MC’s for the next book very well and I am looking forward to Hunt and Payne’s story and hopefully we will get to see more of Slade and Knight.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
