When private investigator, Shane Stephens, is hired by the mayor of Cincinnati to track down the hacker who has been threatening him, Shane is sure this is the opportunity to launch the Merleau Detection Agency into the big time. He even convinces Rowe Ward of Ward Security to loan him one of his best IT specialists, Quinn Lake.

Shane, a man who prefers casual intimacy, is surprised by his attraction to the moody computer geek, but when Quinn suggests they have fun for the month he’s on loan, Shane happily agrees. Both men are expecting nothing more than a good time.

But the investigation takes an unexpected turn and they quickly discover they are facing more than a hacker out to ruin the mayor’s re-election chances. And as they spend more time together, they realize their relationship may be a lot more than just a good time.

With only weeks until the election, Shane and Quinn race to gather the proof they need while dodging bullets and possibly…falling in love.


This is book two in Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliott’s Ward Security series. Book one, Psycho Romeo, was one of the best books I read in 2017 so I was eager to get my hands on this pretty! When it ended I was not disappointed. It was wonderful.

We met Quinn in book one and the second I saw him I wanted his story. He is a geeky IT genius. A former hacker who has a past that has made him into the smarty he is now. I love his heart. The kindness in him warmed me. How he cares for his mother at the sacrifice of himself was commendable. At the same time he needed a person. Someone to help him live and love.

Shane, well he’s a bit of the opposite of Quinn. He loves his sex and likes not being attached. We know from the second these two see each other that they have chemistry.

With Quinn working for Shane to help him discover who is hacking into the Mayors files, they have a no strings attached sexual relationship. Of course nothing is easy. There’s action in this story, a terrific mystery, passion, suspense, and humor. It just has it all. You’d be hard-pressed to find something you don’t like about this book.

It’s another home run read by this literary dynamic duo.
