When Seth Tanner’s younger brother is murdered during a ghost sighting gone awry, Seth finds himself in the hospital. Under suicide watch, Seth is considered to be a little off his rocker, because he keeps mentioning that he and his brother met something supernatural that night. Two years later, with his parents dead, and with only some money, Seth finds himself using his parents fifth-wheeler as a home, with his truck and Hayabusa as his form of transportation. During those two years, Seth has trained and fought with supernatural beings, working as a hunter against things that go bump in the night.
Seth doesn’t expect to meet Sonny, a guy who turns out to be more than just a cute date. He’s the next person in line in a series of murders, and Seth is in charge of protecting him. When Seth finds out Sonny is none other than the dude he’s supposed to be protecting from supernatural dangers, he realizes that he fucked up royally. (Seth was supposed to be protecting Jackson Evan Malone–Sonny–not accidentally sleeping with him.)
As their complicated relationship–are they budding lovers or protector and the guy that’s in danger of being murdered?–grows, the sexual tension keeps being rekindled by Seth and Evan. The more they sleep together, which happens frequently, the harder it becomes to just assume their roles as distant strangers.
As time starts to run out, Seth and Evan have to wonder whether they will continue as lovers, or if the whole thing will blow over once Evan’s life has been spared from a warlock hell-bent on using Evan to gain immortality.
Will Seth be able to protect Evan? Will they become boyfriends, once this has all smoothed over? Only time, and defeating a crazy warlock, will tell.
I really enjoyed this book! It was thrilling, sexy, and reminded me very much of one of my favorite TV shows, Supernatural. The dangers felt intense, and very real to me. Like I just said, the saga of Evan and Seth feels like several episodes of Supernatural, but with a gay subplot. I recommend this book to people who love to read about supernatural mysteries, with fresh characters, humor, and an interesting plot.
