After barely surviving a shootout in New Orleans, Sidewinder medic Kelly Abbott has to suffer through a month of recovery before he can return home to Colorado. He’s not surprised when fellow Sidewinder Nick O’Flaherty stays with him in New Orleans. Nor is he surprised when Nick travels home with him to help him get back on his feet—after all, years on the same Marine Force Recon team bonded the men in ways that only bleeding for a brother can. He’s very surprised, though, when Nick humors his moment of curiosity and kisses him.
Nick knows all of Kelly’s quirks and caprices, so the kiss was a low-risk move on his part . . . or so he thought. But what should’ve been a simple moment unleashes a flood of confusing emotions and urges that neither man is prepared to address.
Now, Kelly and Nick must figure out what they mean to each other—friends and brothers in arms, or something even deeper?—before the past can come back to ruin their tenuous future.
This book can be read on its own, or enjoyed as part of the Sidewinder series.
Oh these two, robbed my heart just the same as Ty and Zane; really, it was such an unexpected gift that i am absolutely thrilled with Abigail Roux.
I was schocked
Kelly Abbott and Nick O'Flaherty's story is actually kind of funny. Kelly is injured and Nick helps him while he recuperates. Then one day he says to Nick, "kiss me." Well, yes Nick is pretty surprised and he has to be talked into it at first.
After the first kiss, however, Nick has to be talked out of jumping Kelly while he is healing. He tries to be patient, but Kelly does not want to wait. He has found out how attracted he is to Nick and demands to be satisfied!
Kelly and Nick are in the same Team Sidewinders (hence the series title) and are both Recon Marines. Nick does not want their good friendship to be altered and is considerably upset and confused at the requests. He has tried hard to never put his Marine buddies in that light in his head. Now, he has to look at all angles of what and why this has changed.
Kelly, meanwhile is healing. Getting more demanding of Nick too. He never knew why he felt so fluttery looking at Nick. Now he has an answer for the tingles and such he always felt around him.
There are 2 stories in one in this book. Well worth the money and the read. I loved the Nick character from the Cut & Run series, and he makes a terrific start to this newer series. Such a good book with excellent banter and HOT enough to keep you humming.
