Former Navy SEAL Axel Blaze lives a solitary life. He doesn’t do emotions, and he doesn’t do babysitting. Used to being on his own, his job consists of Wetwork (a charming term coined by the KGB) for his former Master Chief, Mac. When an out-of-the-ordinary job lands on his doorstep, Axel heads down a path that includes a famous heavy metal rock band and one quiet, vulnerable, guitar-shredding virtuoso named Gareth Wolf.
Gareth Wolf’s life changed in an instant when a car he was a passenger in crashed, hurting his brother’s best friend and the band’s lead guitarist. They created the band, Skull Blasters, as kids. Gareth had always been happy in the background, playing roadie. With the lead guitarist’s injury, Gareth is suddenly thrust into the limelight and into a frenzied life he never imagined for himself. Finally fed up with living a lie, Gareth comes out as gay in a newspaper interview and finds himself in the bulls-eye of a crazed stalker. Somebody wants Gareth hurt – or worse – and Mac has been hired to be sure that doesn’t happen. Babysitting duty is NOT Axel’s strong suit, but Mac won’t be budged.
Enter Axel Blaze.
Against his better judgment, the big man takes the job to protect the shy musician. The more time he spends with Gareth Wolf, the more he admires the man. Where’s a simple assassination when you need one? The situation becomes more volatile for each man as the attempts on Gareth escalate just as Axel finds himself falling for the quiet lead guitarist.
Strong, funny, smart-ass — and kinda sweet Axel is everything Gareth has ever wanted in a man. Too bad he’s off limits. As the stalker grows bolder, Gareth and Axel move closer emotionally – but is it too late? All Axel knows is that they don’t stand a chance if he can’t find the maniac trying to kill the man he’s come to care about. A lot.
Everyone knows that relationships that begin in pressured or volatile situations eventually fizzle out.
Or do they?
OMG i loved this book so hard! and i want a tree house.
I found myself so engrossed in the story and sexy characters i finished it in one sitting.
Come on a former Navy SEAL and a rock star, holy hotness. Neither of the two were happy with the situation they found themselves in, Gareth didnt want a bodyguard and Axel wasnt into baby sitting the rich and famous. But as time goes on they build a friendship and then a relationship that made me smile and happy.
I loved Gareth’s innocence and the struggle Axel had to keep things professional as a pair they were awesome. I loved the chemistry and banter between both Axel and Gareth.
I liked the angsty moments of the story, there are plenty of twists and turns as to who the person responsible could be that’s turning Gareth’s life upside down, the little bit of action towards the end as the plot unfolded.
I am looking forward to more books in this series, i know this book has had some harsh reviews but in my opinion i thought i was a great read.
