Jake “Merc” Mercer lives life as a total loner; he has his career to thank for that. A former Navy SEAL now retired and running a successful private investigation firm in the Pacific Northwest. He gets an uneasy reaction about his newest assignment but still takes the case: locate and report back about some guy from Atlanta who hasn’t been heard from in ten years.
Devan Knight was living his life under the radar and on the run. Raising his son on his own, he made a promise to keep the boy safe and protected from the manipulative grasp of his bigoted grandparents.
Jake eases his way into Devan’s life and a friendship is formed that quickly goes from flirting in a friendly way to one hot night under the sheets that change them both in a way they never expected.
Will Devan find out Jake’s true identity? And the reason why he was intentionally placed in his life?
Or will he choose to Run?
