Length: 41,600 words

Cover Design: Garrett Leigh


Close friends and partners at FireWorks Security, Joel Weston and Kieran Ross know each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They have each other’s backs, make a formidable team, and carefully ignore their volatile chemistry.

When Kieran struggles with the aftermath of an assignment gone wrong, Joel is there to help. When Joel is caught in an explosion, Kieran jumps into a burning marina to rescue the man who means so much to him. But they never discuss what’s closest to their hearts, not prepared to risk their friendship for the mere possibility of something more.

Faced with bombs, assassins, and old ghosts, Joel and Kieran must find out why they’re targets, who is coming after them, and—most of all—how each would feel if he lost the other. Should they continue as best friends, or is it time to take a leap of faith?

4 Stars!

I loved Kieran and Joel and I loved their friendship and how they were there for each other, uncaring for their own safety or well-being so long as the other was alright. I loved the progression from partners/best friends into more, even if it was very slow burn, seeing as they'd been partners for 4 years already when one of them finally made a move. While I'm not one that needs sex in books, I wouldn't have minded this book to have a bit more. Anyway, Kieran and Joel had great chemistry and were fantastic together, complementing one another perfectly and I really hope we'll get to see more of them in future books in the series. 

The case they were working on was very interesting and I enjoyed seeing the FireWorks Security team (Joel, Kieran and Marius, especially) working as a well-oiled machine.  

Overall, Leap of Faith is well-written, action-packed, fast-paced book, with some romantic undertones. This is not a romance per se, but the UST between Joel and Kieran interspersed with all the action made it worthwhile. This was a pretty good start of the series, I'll be looking forward to more!

Very recommendable!

Author Bio

Jackie Keswick was born behind the Iron Curtain with itchy feet, a bent for rocks and a recurring dream of stepping off a bus in the middle of nowhere to go home. She's worked in a hospital and as the only girl with 52 men on an oil rig, spent a winter in Moscow and a summer in Iceland and finally settled in the country of her dreams with her dream team: a husband, a cat, a tandem, a hammer and a laptop.

Jackie loves unexpected reunions and second chances, and men who don't follow the rules when those rules are stupid. She blogs about English history and food, has a thing for green eyes, and is a great believer in making up soundtracks for everything, including her characters and the cat.

And she still hasn't found the place where the bus stops.

For questions and comments, not restricted to green eyes, bus stops or recipes for traditional English food, you can find Jackie Keswick in all the usual places:
