It is no secret that I am a Tal Bauer stan. But this book is a distillation of everything I love about his work. The story launches with the apparent suicide of the leader of the free world. At Camp David, under the watch of the Secret Service. The rest is a breathless race of the Vice President, Jonathan Sharp, and his ex-lover, Secret Service Agent, Sean Avery to find the truth and protect the legacy of the President. There were several times when I was sure I had the solution but I was not prepared for the twist at the end. When I say I had to put down my Kindle and stare out into space for a few minutes to recover.

Our Favorite Quotes

I wanted to reach for him. I wanted to touch him, lay my hand on his shoulder, run it down his arm. I wanted to step up behind him, slide my fingers around his hip, hold him in my arms. I wanted to nuzzle the back of his neck with my lips, whisper that it would be okay, that we would get through this. That I would be there for him.

β€œNothing about you disgusts me,” I said. β€œIt’s the goddamn opposite. I crave you so fucking much. Everything about you.” I took a step forward, starting to close the distance between us. One year and the width of the Oval Office. β€œI want everything with you. I want everything from you.” My voice dropped, suddenly ragged. β€œI never stopped falling for you. I know I fucked this up. Badly. But if you’ll give us a second chance, I will be that man for you.”

I fell face-first into the tall, dark, and handsome aura of Vice President Jonathan Sharp through raw exposure. He was everywhere, all the time, magnetic and white-hot and pulling me to him like a gravity well.

From The Publisher


You've heard this story before: a guy supposedly kills himself, but his best friend can't accept it. He calls in an investigator he knows to take a second look, certain there's more going on.

I'm the investigator. Secret Service Agent Sean Avery. The guy who called me? My ex, Vice President Jonathan Sharp. And the guy he doesn't believe put a bullet in his brain?

That was President Steven Baker.

The deeper I dig, the more things fall apart. I've got a dead president inside a locked room. A hidden note. A secret gun. A missing CIA officer.

And no one I can trust.

Now Jonathan's in the crosshairs, and if I don't figure out what really happened that night at Camp David, the love of my life might be the next president to die.

***This M/M romantic suspense features smoldering forbidden love and a May/December second chance romance that ignites your pages.
