Trust me when I tell you that this is the best thing SE Jakes has written, and she’s been entertaining me with her writing for a while now. This book is an entirely new level of writing and story
Four men fighting against their pasts…and for each other.
Several years after washing up on a beach in South Africa with absolutely no memory—not even his name—Lucky would rather not remember his past. Based on the number of scars on his body, it couldn’t have been anything good.
Then a man claiming to be his former Navy SEAL teammate walks into the bar and insists that Lucky’s real name is Josiah Joshua Kent. Turns out he’s been listed as KIA, and since he’s not dead, he’s now AWOL—and under suspicion.
Discovering Josh is alive throws Rex, and his relationship with Sawyer, into a tailspin. Rex can finally lay to rest the nightmares of the night he couldn’t save his teammate. And Sawyer is faced with his worst nightmare—a relationship threatened by a very real ghost from the past.
As Josh begins to piece his memories back together, another man with a shadowy connection to his past—and maybe his heart—holds the key that could free him. Or send him to a traitor’s fate.

Yeah, me too.He could blame the drink or the stress, but really, the rough touch and the handling always did it for him.
I love the chemistry between these two. It is all chemistry in the beginning and sometimes that’s not okay, but it works here because the relationship gets to build into more, and isn’t that what we really want to see?
THE WRITINGLucky was being treated with a mixture of respect and suspicion, sometimes both at the same time, and it was beginning to freak him the fuck out. […] But now that he was here, he was given extra escorts into the building. Men in uniform who surrounded him like he was a bomb they were worried would detonate. Am I?
They forced you to believe the lies.
