Assistant US attorney Dominic Price is staring down the barrel of his father’s debts. The bull’s-eye on his back makes him a threat to everyone he cares about, so when his lover wants to go public with their relationship, he bolts. Not because he isn’t in love—he can’t stomach the thought of putting Cam in danger.

Kidnap and rescue expert Cameron Byrne is determined to figure out what trouble Nic is running from, but devastating news from home brings him back to Boston and to the cold case that has haunted his family for two decades. Shoving aside his pride, he calls Nic for help.

Together they search for answers, navigating the minefield of Cam’s past. But when they get too close to the truth, Cam must use every skill in his arsenal to save the man he loves…before it’s too late.


I think I could have loved this book. But unbenounced to me, it was the second book in a series. I was thrown into the middle of something I didn’t understand; in the middle of a relationship I knew nothing about. With characters and nicknames and what seemed like ever changing job titles. To say I was confused would be an understatement.

I had to scribble out a list of who each character was, their nicknames and the jobs titles they identified with and I feel as though I was adding to it until the very last pages.

Just when I was sarting to wrap my head around who all the characters were, the book ended and while one of the two main conflicts was resolved the other one was left as a cliffhanger for the next book.

If you’re looking to read a series and don’t mind cliff-hangers you will love this book. Personally, I have issues with commitment so I try my best to only read stand alones.

Overall, I think Craft Brew would read well as a series. If it sounds like something you would be interested in, I strongly recommend you go back and read the first book. It was well written and engaging, with well developed characters and an in-depth plot. You will be eagerly awaiting the next installment.
