Blurb

The ugliest truths blossom into the prettiest lies. 


A year into the relationship with Domenico, Seth still wants him as desperately as ever. Nothing is better than being intoxicated with lust for his deadly man and feeling his steady hands all over. 

No matter the misunderstandings, the fights... The crash. The burn. 

Crossing the Mexican border has been a goal for Seth and Domenico for a few months, but the trip couldn’t have ended in more of a disaster. While Domenico is stuck at home, for Seth each passing day becomes more difficult. Desperate to keep his family afloat, he accepts a job offer from Los Sepultureros. The Gravediggers. 

When Domenico’s need for control starts eroding their trust, Seth is sure their love can conquer all. But when Domenico rips open the wound left after the violence at the beginning of their relationship, it gushes blood all over their cozy lies and this time, there may be no way to seal it. 



I needed this book to happen, and I didn't even really know i needed it to.
So much has happened between book 1 and this book that you almost forget how they started....almost.

This book was like a confession, absolving them of their sins. They needed to deal with the past and let it go to start over again...as it should have been.

"The two of them belonged together like sin and confession”

- The ugliest truths blossom into the pretties lies-

That says it all. Ugly truths, the lies to cover it up. Lies to protect the other. They all become a tangled mess.

While these lies are being sorted through, things get pretty ugly. My heart broke for them. First for Dom and then for Seth. I don't think I have ever really cried in this series. Edge of my seat, yes, and a lot of worry, but never any actual tears. This book I was gasping like a fish as my heart broke for them. Of course there are still explosions, and lots of blood, what kind of adventure would it be if there wasn't?? But there is a lot of personal growth for the both of them as well. Even for Mark, who is all too eager to prove he is ready.

Dom also has a few "human' moments. Moments to show he is in fact just a man. My favorite one is the fly in the room. I too have had thoughts like this, so i think it really connects the character to the reader even more.

Dom has this moment, not if the life he had already, but of a future. A future he wants but doesn't think they will see. It is the sweetest thing. When he gets the chance, he starts taking steps into that direction to get things right with Seth, his family, and God, so that one day they can have that future, but based off a beginning without hatred, jealousy, and violence.

The book runs parallel to One Step Too Close. If you all were paying attention to where Dana was sent and what she has to do, you'll notice from Dom's conversations with her that she hasn't yet met who she does at the end of OSTC.

I am still very curious as to how that will play out and what will happen in the next book when Dom and Miquel ((his new "friend" in Mexico)) take a trip to Colombia. Will Seth be left to take care of Mark? Or will he refuse and go along. It's all still very mysterious and I am so excited to get more of their story. One thing that also makes me happy is that even though Seth is in the middle of all this violence and maybe a little hardened, he's still the sweet man that wants to have a food blog. He's so very endearing.

Until next time, I give it 5 forgiving stars



Author Bio

K. A. Merikan is the pen name for Kat and Agnes Merikan, a team of writers, who are taken for sisters with surprising regularity. Kat’s the mean sergeant and survival specialist of the duo, never hesitating to kick Agnes’s ass when she’s slacking off. Her memory works like an easy-access catalogue, which allows her to keep up with both book details and social media. Also works as the emergency GPS. Agnes is the Merikan nitpicker, usually found busy with formatting and research. Her attention tends to be scattered, and despite pushing thirty, she needs to apply makeup to buy alcohol. Self-proclaimed queen of the roads.

They love the weird and wonderful, stepping out of the box, and bending stereotypes both in life and books. When you pick up a Merikan book, there’s one thing you can be sure of – it will be full of surprises.

Synopsis A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story. The hunt is on… and he’s the prey.

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What hedidn’twant was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time.

Dana pulled himself up by his own boot straps and made a name for himself in the marksman community. He’d been Duke’s bounty watchman for five years. It was his job to ensure th…
