Cabe got out of the gun-for-hire business the hard way – by nearly dying. Except then his former boss calls in one last favor for one final job. The mission should be simple: get a message to a retired operative in Alaska. But it puts Cabe face-to-face with the one man he doesn’t want to see and can never forget. Not after all the secrets and lies. Not after Brax almost killed him.

Brax Hughes lived hard and retired young to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Well, that was the plan, but before he can hang up his sniper rifle, he has one last mission: win back Kyle Cabe. Brax wants another chance, wants to come clean, but after months of lying to Cabe, he knows he could face a bullet – or worse – when they meet again. And they will meet. Brax made sure of that.

With a storm moving in and someone lurking outside the cabin, time is running out. Brax needs to talk fast and keep his weapons ready. And his best weapon is the truth.

Story Review:

Queue did the original review for this story.  He enjoyed it far more than I did, so I will refer you to his review of the eBook.

I will say, however, if it hadn’t been for the narration, I probably would not have finished this book.

Narration Review:

I had not listened to a Dorian Bane narrated story before.  I can’t say that he has a smooth voice that I could list to for hours, but I will say that his voice lent itself well to these two bad-ass alpha male characters.  It was gruff and gravelly. Not something I think I would want to listen to all the time, but now and again for the right characters, sure.  These were the right characters.
