Forced to go into witness protection, ATF agent, Thayne Wolfe, is less than thrilled. The State’s Attorney needs him to testify against one of the most ruthless and notorious arms dealers in the world. Expecting boredom and lots of daytime television, he instead ends up with a ridiculous new job, a stupid new name, and the world’s most annoying shadow. Jarrett Evans, is nevertheless tasked with keeping Wolfe alive long enough to put Mills Lang and his crew away for the rest of their miserable lives.
Jarrett Evans, former Marine, has always been a free spirit, doing the dirty work for Uncle Sam whenever and wherever he’s needed. One of the best snipers in the world, Evans is at peace with the man he’s become. That doesn’t mean he’s ever liked the cold-blooded killer who stares back at him from the mirror every day. The moment he meets pretty boy, Thayne Wolfe however, things start a slow change and redemption begins to sound possible.
Mills Lang, the world’s most ruthless arms dealer, is little more than a serial killer in his own right. Rotting away in prison with nothing but time on his hands, Lang is determined to destroy the man he allowed into his inner circle. Thayne Wolfe will die in the most painful way… along with anyone he loves.
(Stay tuned for Thayne and Jarrett’s continuing adventures. “Flash and Bang” Book Two… coming soon!)
They may share an instant mutual attraction but that doesn't mean that they actually like each other.
ATF Agent Thayne Wolf has spent the past 2 years undercover trying to take down one of the worlds most infamous Arms' Dealer, Mills Lang. Disgusted with what he's witnessed as well as those he's had to befriend, Thayne is anxious to finally take Lange and his gang down and be free from his criminal persona. With a joint arrest by the ATF and the FBI, Thayne is finally able to go home. However, Thayne soon learns that as he awaits testifying he must go into witness protection to avoid the hit that has been put out on him.
Enter Jarret Evans, ex-Marine Sniper and government agent turned Personal Security Specialist. Jarrett has been tasked with keeping Thayne alive and well until the trial when he will have to testify against Lang. For 3 months he will be forced to live and work with Thayne all while protecting him from the various hit men who are undoubtedly looking to make sure he never makes it to the stand.
With new identities and new friends, Thayne and Jarrett start to grow closer. Their tentative friendship becomes something more and while they both know that the timing couldn't be worse they can't help but to give in to their attraction. Just as they start to get comfortable it seems trouble has caught up to them forcing them to abandon everything and run. Now however, it's not just about Thayne, Jarrett's past is about to catch up with him as well.
Death and Destruction is my first novel by Patricia Logan but will definitely not be my last. This book had a little bit of everything in it: Action, Romance, Humor, Sex. Death and Destruction is perfect when you're in the mood for hot guys and guns.
I loved the characters. Thayne and Jarrett had great chemistry and fun banter, I'm a sucker for two Alpha males who are fighting to keep their hands off each other. They definitely make a good team.
I also liked the supporting cast of characters we are introduced to throughout the story, however, I wish we could have found out more about them.
The only thing that truly bothered me with this story is the fact that there are quite a few things that don't get resolved at the end. I'm not sure if these things will be resolved in the next book, I'm hoping that they will be but we'll have to wait and see.
All in all, I truly enjoyed Death and Destruction and am anxious to continue Thayne and Jarrett's story in book 2.
