Sometimes falling in love is the most dangerous thing of all.
Blue is a thief who lives for adrenaline and danger. And when he meets Mick, a mercenary, he’s hit with a buzz of attraction like the rush of a high-rise job without a safety rope. But after making plans to get together, Mick leaves him hanging, and Blue vows never again.
A year later, Mick watches helplessly as Blue stumbles into the middle of one of Mick’s jobs. Risking his cover and their lives, Mick saves Blue and cares for him as he recuperates, but neither man has any idea how to handle the intimacy this forces them into.
Once Blue is safe, Mick redoubles his efforts to take down the drug lord responsible—and disappears. Blue goes after him, determined to return the favor and rescue the man he loves, no matter the cost.
This is a revised second edition of the originally self-published title.
Do you enjoy smokin’ hot sex between two alpha males? Yes? Boy do I have a recommendation for you! Free Falling by SE Jakes is a lust-filled adventure that just oozes testosterone as Blue and Mick give in to their passionate desire for one another.
Blue and Mick are the type of heroes that I love. Strong, but with just a hint of vulnerability that makes them realistic and sympathetic. Both Blue and Mick have trust issues and the nature of their jobs forces them to keep free of emotional entanglements. Mick is overprotective and will go to any lengths to keep Blue safe. And Blue? He was so mischievous that I just could not help but love him.
Free Falling’s plot is quite unique and beautifully executed. The story is fast-paced and a wonderful mix of emotions, action and incendiary sex. Some of the scenes are incredibly poignant and beautifully showcase the softer side of Blue. Mick’s repartee with his co-worker Prophet is delightfully witty.
One of my favorite authors of BDSM M/M romance, SE Jakes once again delivers a credible story with characters that are flawed but immensely appealing. I am eagerly awaiting Prophet’s book-he is deliciously enigmatic and I cannot wait to learn what makes him tick.
