REVIEW TOUR - Leap of Faith (FireWorks Security #1) by Jackie Keswick


Add to Goodreads  |  BookLikes


Genre:

M/M, Contemporary, Romance

Synopsis:

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 after them and—most of all—how each would feel if he lost the other. Can they continue as best friends, or is it time to take a leap of faith?

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!


Kieran and Joel have worked together for 4 years. They have each loved the other for the same amount of time but neither wanted to ruin what they had. But when both man get caught up in something that nearly costs them both their lives, all bets are off. 

This sort of creeps up on you, and slaps you upside the head when you aren't looking! It starts off slow, and then rapidly increases speed till we are at rocket speed and I loved this book!

Its seemed only short, the some 125 pages, according to Goodreads, but Amazon tags it with 205 pages, but it packs a powerful punch. Both men have suffered, and both have learned the other soothes their soul. Joel won't sleep till Kieran is close by, and Kieran's nightmares are held back by Joel's simply telling him he's there. And this is BEFORE they get their act together and admit how they feel. 

It does get a little.....messy, when Kieran gets caught snooping, and when they are talking about what happened the week before. That's why I've filed it as darker/grittier. Its painful reading, but only because of the subject matter, not how its written. 

There is a cast of supporting characters whom I hope will appear in future books, not least Joel's dad and uncle. Oh and the doctor who helps them. OH!! the doctor and the uncle, now that would be great!! 

I really don't care who appears in future books, I just want to read them. 

I've read The Power of Zero books, one through three, and I loved them. This is on a par with them.

so, because it whoops you upside the head outta nowhere..

5 full stars

**same worded review will appear elsewhere**

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *


Jackie Keswick was born behind the Iron Curtain with itchy feet, a bent for rocks and a recurrent 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 stories about unexpected reunions and second chances, and men who don't follow the rules when those rules are stupid. She has a thing for green eyes and tight cyclist's butts 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.
