Hiding in plain sight is a risky business—in more ways than one.
Jamie is hiding from the past and sacrificing a lot to do so. After witnessing a murder, he’s on the run from powerful enemies. Taking a job at a rough leather bar, Spikes, is a way to survive off-grid.
Bubba is the bouncer at Spikes who takes a personal interest in protecting Jamie’s very cute behind, but when Jamie runs from the club in panic straight into the path of a van, there’s nothing Bubba can do.
Amnesia puts Jamie at risk, but his returning memories are even more dangerous. Desperate to protect his friends, he puts his life on the line for Bubba—the only person he can rely on to save his neck.
Reader advisory: This book contains a scene of attempted rape. There are also scenes involving abduction, violence, and the forcible administration of drugs.
There are quite a few things this author does really well in her writing. First, is working in some suspense, thriller and action into her books. Another is she doesn’t feel the need to write a lot of words to create a story. Her books are not loaded with “fluff”, but what the reader needs and wants to understand and enjoy the story. She does both of these things exceedingly well again in this thriller short story.
Jamie definitely has seen his fair share of trauma and pain, and fortunately Bubba is there to try to help him through it, and keep him safe. These two were sweet together, as it was obvious they had been circling each other for a while. When Jamie wakes up in the hospital with amnesia, Bubba steps in and does what he can to help him figure out what happened to cause Jamie to run.
It’s a short story, so the resolution comes quick, but as always a fun ride to read with this author’s book.
