Lennox Freeman (Free) is one of the best hackers in the world which has caused him to spend most of his life on the run. Never able to put down roots, he couldn’t trust anyone not to take advantage of him, even his own family. If it wasn’t for his best friend, Tech, shielding him, Free’s father would’ve sold him and his skills to the highest bidding crime family when he was still a student at MIT. Free owed Tech his life; so when his friend called for him to come to Atlanta to work with him, he couldn’t say no. However, he wasn’t expecting the overprotective group of detectives that made up Atlanta PD’s most notorious task force. And he certainly wasn’t prepared for the large-and-in-charge SWAT Captain that was responsible for their safety.
Ivan Hart has lived and bled one creed all of his life: To Serve and Protect. His intense focus and determination in law enforcement has led him to finally commanding his own team. He’d worked hard to put together a squad of badasses capable of backing up a very dangerous team of detectives. Being God and Day’s last line of defense came with a lot of responsibility that he took very seriously.
After his divorce was final Hart turned right around and remarried his job. He had his good friends there in the office with him every day, so it was easier to ignore the few quiet hours he spent at home alone each night. He’d settled well into his new routine and was comfortable with it. Then God decided to disrupt everything by hiring another tech specialist for his department. A man whose brains, trendy looks, and voice would leave Hart tongue-tied and captivated at their first introduction.
Free quickly awakens a passion in Hart that he long thought was dead. An attraction he didn’t know existed. He couldn’t fathom that the sexy cyber genius could be interested in an over-sized, big-bearded brute that served criminals the bottom line for a living. No matter what his best friend, God said.
A future with Hart could be potentially dangerous and often times full of terrifyingly close calls; but little did he know that so could falling for the most hunted hacker in the world. All Lennox Freeman wants in life is security, love and protection… Hart had all that to give and more.
His Hart’s Command Book Review
Free is new to the department, where he is an IT expert (well, he is a lot more than that). He replaced his best friend Tech, who is now a field detective. Free met Hart, the SWAT Captain, who protected Free from a police officer that wanted Free and won’t take no for an answer.
Hart is a divorcee and has some self-confidence issues from the abuse he sustained from his now ex-wife. Hart knows that he prefers men but has not done anything about it–until he met Free. Free also has issues and suffers from anxiety attacks when confronted by aggressive people. Pretty soon, the two develop a relationship, and things get heated real soon.
I have to say that this is my second favorite in the Nothing Special Series. This one pulled at my heartstrings because both men have emotional issues that they had to deal with. Luckily, they were able to help each other to get past them. Hart’s ex-wife did a number on his self-esteem–no woman should be that cruel to her husband. My heart broke for him just imaging living his life with that woman. She was both mentally and physically abusive to him. He is just a big teddy bear. I wish all men could be like him.
This book was another slow burn for me, which I love because when the sex part came, it was explosive hot as hell. They have been attracted to each other for so long that when they finally did something about it—the sex scenes were amazing!
You also get to see some of the guys in the story with their antics–gotta love them all. God and Day had a lover spat, which Hart had to give some advice because God was in the dog house. It all worked out in the end.
Before I sat down and started reading this series, I have never heard about his author before. I was browsing looking for another M/M Romance novel to read and came across the series.
I really love her writing style, and the characters she creates are amazing. Of course, I am about to start her other series, Bounty Hunters, in which we were introduced to one of the characters.
