We back with Janice’s cute guys Joshua and Colin. If you have followed Colin and Joshua in Janice’s previous books, you will know that she puts them through hell and back. These guys have had tough times and its their deep love for each other that gets them through lives trials.
They need all the love of each other to get through their latest and maybe most threatening hurdle.
The book starts with everything on an even keel, but no sooner has Colin passed the bar exam and become an ADA, than things take a twist into the darker side of life (of course it does, this is a Janice Jarrell novel after all!)
Colin becomes involved as a liaison between the DA office and the Police force on a Serial killer/ rapist. This obviously causes Joshua anxiety. He thought Colin had left danger behind him after quitting the police force.
Then Poor Joshua must deal with an angry husband to a patient he is counselling, which causes Colin to become obsessed with Joshua’s safety, to the point where they fall out.
As the case develops, they slowly start piecing together a picture of the killer. But the case becomes personal when Joshua goes missing.
After Joshua is found and safely recovering from his injuries, they have a lot of issues to solve, is their love as strong as they think.
As with all of Janice’s books you get story full of ups and downs with a generous amount of love. The suspense in this story builds to a tense end.
I love Colin and Joshua, but I must admit sometimes Colin’s sometimes worries about Joshua’s safety, border on obsessive, which I am pleased that Janice picked up on in one of their heart-to-heart conversations, and Colin himself realises he cannot protect Joshua 24/7.
It was good to see old friends of the boy pop up too, David and Nate especially. (Janice, we need their story told too lol.)
An overall enjoyable read, with strong, well paces story and nicely developed characters. I wonder what the next book has instore for Colin and Joshua?
