Publisher's Summary

Jared King had endured more than the normal amount of danger in his life. He’d jumped from planes into hot landing zones, been shot at, almost blown up - twice, damn near killed more times than he cared to remember. Yet, nothing in his past compared to the danger of admitting his feelings for Christian Koehler. When Jared pushed Christian away too hard, once too often, the young man finally left and took Jared’s heart with him.

Once upon a time, Christian Koehler had idolized Jared King. But after two years of the arrogant man's hot and cold mind games, Christian avoided the sexy Guardian like the plague. The jagged line between love and hate was paper thin and razor sharp, and Jared had pushed Christian across that line, with prejudice.

When Christian discovers what he believes is a common thread in several disappearances of the homeless and at-risk teens in his area, he immediately tells his superiors. But neither his employer nor the DC cops believe the missing children are connected. Desperate to find out the truth, Christian swallows his pride and returns to the Kings and Guardian for help.

Jared seizes the opportunity to investigate the missing children and the unexpected chance to once again be part of Christian’s life. What he finds leads to a tempest of deceit, danger, and intrigue that pulls Christian back into Jared’s world. This time, Jared vows to fight to keep Christian with him forever - no matter the cost.

Last Chance Romance

I jumped into this series which is mostly M/F romance books because it’s an M/M romance book and I’m glad I did. It’s an enjoyable read. It’s action, mystery and romance. I like getting to know the siblings & wish I could read the other series. Maybe I’ll give the next book a read just to catch a glance of Jared and Christian.
The narrator did a good job, but I can’t help but feel like he’s gone monotone in his narration.
Overall. It’s an enjoyable read.

Becky

This book was very deep, it covers issues that are a reality and people turn there heads because they don't want to get involved or they want to get in on to see if they can get some of the profit. Thank you for such informative writing.

I had put off listening to this book since this one was written by someone who wrote M/F books.

Loved this story now wished I had listened to it when I was reading the other books in this series. Loved how this was set up and the angst and opening up in the end.

Stronger together

Jared is a strong distinctive personality that decides his attraction to Christian would only hurt him. He fights it for three years until Christian comes to Guardian to ask for help. It is during this that someone tries to kill Christian and Jared realizes how much he means to him. The narrator does an excellent job bringing the emotion to these incredible characters created by Kris Michaels. This is one of my favorites from the Guardian series.

A tough nut cracked!!! :)

Jared always believed he had to do without, to protect the man he loved until he realised he had been wrong all this time. Listening to laying bare all his fears was bittersweet, getting to know his inner fears was heartbreaking for his loved one. Sensual and emotive. Love the characters, love the complexity of all the little sub plots. Cracking author and adore every little snippet I can get my hands on. 5 stars for sure xxx

well that was different

my first MM and I wasn't sure about listening but I liked the plot so I went for it.
first time I've struggled with Matt being the solo narrator. normally Matt will lighten his tone to speak the female role but here he did it for Christian, which left me unable to picture Christian as Ms Michael's described. I could not assimilate with the characters and their love.
the romance side was quick and easy, the story side was involved and leads into bigger pictures, which is what the series encompasses.
I'm hoping more of this author is coming to audible as she does a great logistic job of keeping you wondering and worrying.....especially for chief.
look8ng forward to Jasmine
