About the book:

Truth or dare.

Ever since superspy Cillian moved into Prophet’s building, their game of Steal the Couch has been funny to Prophet, but a thorn in Tom’s side.

Daylight Again (Hell or High Water #3) by S.E. Jakes

20699996

Book:  Daylight Again. Book 3 in the Hell or High Water Series. 

Author: SE Jakes

Release Date: May 5th, 2014

 

Synopsis: 

Before Prophet Drews can have a future, he must first put his past to rest.

Prophet Drews is a man on the edge, and he’s pulling Tom Boudreaux, his partner on the job and in real life, right over with him. When his old CO calls in a favor, Prophet asks Tom to join the off-the-grid rescue. But the mission raises all of Prophet’s old ghosts: CIA assassins, the terrorist Sadiq, and most importantly, John—traitor, former teammate, and Prophet’s first love.

To help bury those ghosts for good, Prophet and Tom gather the members of Prophet’s former SEAL team . . . and a spook named Cillian who’s been tailing Prophet for years. In the process, Prophet is forced to face his team’s shifting loyalties, ghosts who refuse to stay dead, and scariest of all, his own limitations.

With everyone’s lives in danger, Prophet and Tom must unravel a tangled knot of secrets, including their own. Prophet must decide how much to reveal to Tom, while Tom must decide how far he’s willing to go to help Prophet lay his ghosts to rest.

Hell or High Water Series.

If you know me, you have to know that I grumble grumble grumble about in-complete series. I have ZERO patience waiting for books. ZERO. I get really angry and become this person that you don’t want to be around. Sounds bad? Well trust me it is.

Hell or High Water Series.

I’m like a moth to a flame with this one. I could give 2 shoots about SE always leaving me at the edge of a cliff. Because you know what? SHE ALWAYS leaves me at the edge of a cliff dammit! And I love it. SE’s High Water and Dirty Deeds interwoven magic are the only series where I will willingly jump off that cliff. And man oh man do I enjoy the ride!

Its Friday afternoon, I have no kids! One’s at work and the other is gone for the night out of town. It’s just me and the hubz. Date night. I hear the chime to Slitsreads email. I look. I gasp. I jump around. I dance. I scream. I express my undying love to Shawnie and Riptide. I HAVE PROPHET. 

Needless to say I left my husband to the wind.

I have Prophet.

Book 3.

Best book out of the whole damn bunch so far and that is saying A LOT.

Secrets are revealed. We got violence. We got some smoking freaking sex. We got angst.

The 1st 5% of the book I didn’t know if I should go try to scratch the itch or cry.

My poor poor Proph. He broke my heart.

SE gave us such a good mix. Between the sex and all the drama going down. 50/50. No more no less. It was utter perfection.

The story is fast paced.  Really fast paced. Something happens and you try to start to reel from it and then BAM something else is going down. In between all of this we got the sex.

Mother.Of.All.That.Is.Holy

tumblr_minwkpOEbt1r7enn0o1_500

The sex will leave you panting. And visualizing. And wanting.

But above all. The story has depth. Way more depth than the 1st two books. Years and years of mind fuckery about to be exposed. Characters that we heard about in book 1 come back in book 3 with a vengeance, with revenge, bad characters. Characters that you want to kill. Maim. Slay. If you’ve read book 3 you know exactly who I am talking about.

And the cast of characters that we love are back.

And you can see where Dirty Deeds is interwoven with Hell or High Water.

Mal

Prophet

The only 2 I love.

I want them both.

In a sandwich.

With me.

I’m still jealous of Tommy. I know its irrational. But so what. They are my fictional loves. MINE.

So. Now….

I wait. Till August. For more.

On the cliff. That I crawled back up after I jumped off.

All hail the Queen of Cliffs. Ms SE Jakes. 

5++ stars.

Long Time Gone (Hell or High Water #2) by S.E. Jakes

17936957

 

When a tornado meets a volcano, nothing is safe.

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 ofbeing 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.

Catch a Ghost (Hell or High Water #1) by S.E. Jakes

18278085

Everyone knows that Prophet—former Navy SEAL, former CIA spook, full-time pain in the ass—works alone and thinks only about the trouble he can cause. But his boss, Phil Butler of Extreme Escapes, LTD., has just assigned Proph not only a new partner but also a case haunted by ghosts from Proph’s past. Suddenly, he’s got to confront them both head on.

Tom Boudreaux—failed FBI agent, failed sheriff, full time believer in bad luck—is wondering why the head of a private contracting firm has hunted him down to offer him a job. Still he’s determined to succeed this time, despite being partnered with Prophet, EE, LTD’s most successful, lethal, and annoying operative, and even though the case is also resurrecting his own painful past.

Together, Prophet and Tom must find a way to take down killers in the dangerous world of underground cage matches, while fighting their own dangerous attraction. And when they find themselves caught in the crossfire, these two loners are forced to trust each other and work together to escape their ghosts . . . or pay the price.

3.5 LEAVE YOU HANGING ON A SERIOUS CLIFF STARS

DAMN IF I KNEW THIS WAS A CLIFFHANGER I MAY HAVE WAITED TO READ IT! IF YOU KNOW ME AT ALL YOU KNOW I SERIOUSLY DO NOT HAVE PATIENCE WHEN IT COMES TO WAITING ON BOOK 2’S OR 3’S

…. BUT HAVING SAID THIS… THIS BOOK SUCKED ME IN RIGHT FROM THE START…

MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE THINGS ALL WRAPPED UP IN 1 PRETTY PACKAGE

  1. MM ROMANCE
  2. ASSASSINS
  3. KILLERS
  4. SARCASM
  5. HOT SEX
  6. TATTOOS
  7. PIERCINGS

THE BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN PROPHET AND TOMMY WAS AWESOME! I LIVE AND BREATHE FOR SARCASM AND THIS BOOK HAD IT IN SPADES!!!

THE SEX, THE SEX WAS FUCKING HOTT!!! AND I LOVED THAT THEY DID EACH OTHER!!! THERE WAS NO TOPPIN HERE! WE HAD 2 ALPHA SEXY MEN IN SOME SEXY ASS SCENES!!!!

“Before he could roll away, Tom put his full weight on him. Grabbed his arms and yanked them over his head. Held them there. Stared at him until Prophet wanted to look away, but fuck it all, he didn’t. Not even when Tommy told him, ‘tonight, there’s only room for two of us in this bed-and you’re going to know who’s fucking you.’ It was a threat, a promise, all rolled together, enough to make him ache at the realness of it.”

“Making memories?’, “I’m not just a memory,” Tom told him, his voice far more steady than he felt. “You’re going to get that tonight” 

Injured souls, painful pasts, MINDFUCKERY in it’s fullest with this book!!!
