I never thought we’d get a second chance.
Fox Walker is the CIA’s best hacker, but his latest case has him stumped. He comes to Hidden Creek hot on the data trail of a terrorist, but his own past traumas still haunt him, and he can’t forget the sexy Green Beret he met in Syria eight years ago.
Former Green Beret Axel Ford is now with the FBI, stationed in Hidden Creek and investigating a domestic bombing ring. He works too much, plays too little, and still thinks that he’s straight. So when he bumps into Fox after all these years, he can’t explain why he’s drawn to the geek.
Fox and Axel must work fast before more lives are lost but in the heat of the moment everything they thought they’d buried in Syria bursts through into their hearts. Can they stop an international terrorist conspiracy, save this small town, and still find time for their second chance at love?
Welcome to Hidden Creek, Texas, where the heart knows what it wants, and where true love lives happily ever after. Every Men of Hidden Creek novel can be read on its own, but keep an eye out for familiar faces around town! This book contains a sassy nerd, an all-American hero, and some seriously explosive amateur chemistry.

Suspense with a capital S.
When CIA IT geek Fox Walker met special forces team leader Capt Axel Ford in Aleppo there were definitely sparks but it was the wrong time, the wrong place and absolutely the wrong circumstances to explore the heat. Plus, Captain Ford is probably, most likely straight. That fact didn’t stop Fox from losing his balance. Things went to hell quickly and without Axel, Fox wouldn’t have had a chance to make it home.
This story didn’t let me go until I fell asleep with the Kindle in my hand. As this was a new author to me, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I purchased this book as part of a series, the Men of Hidden Creek, because I’m familiar with some of the other authors, one (A.E. Wasp) is a particular favorite of mine.
Max Hawthorn brought us a thrilling story with explosions, terrorists, guns, lots of bad guys, fewer good guys, a gay primary character, and a ‘straight’ primary character. There are plenty of sexy times that fit nicely into the story.
I gave this a 4.25-4.5 rating and highly recommend this author, and this story as a great addition to your library!
