a great book. it has a great plot. I didn't listen to the first 4 books but it helps it's own by itself. I didn't feel like I was missing anything. I would recommend this book. and I will be looking for other books in the series.

One night several years ago Logan Crane and Harper Gallagher shared a night of passion and then walked away from each other. Neither one of them were in a position to offer anything other than heartbreak and disappointment. Harper is a former intelligence officer in the Navy, and now works for the CIA. She is sent on an undercover mission to retrieve an apparatus that lists all the secret operatives working in the American intelligence community. Logan had a bad experience working with the FBI that he never truly recovered from. 

very entertaining.

Everything he thought was right turned out to be the exact opposite. He has to make a lot of choices, but one thing is clear: he loves Carly and he has to find a way to claim her.

On the surface Adrian has it all: He’s the owner of the Nine - the only source of nightlife in Montana Beach - and he has his boyfriend Malcolm. The only problem is: Malcolm’s married. Although he promises to leave his wife, Adrian still wonders if he’ll always be “the other lover”, and whether that’s enough for him. Tyler has watched his best friend pursue his relationship with a married man knowing that it won’t end well. He knows that he could treat Adrian better, but he’s never expressed his feelings to anyone.
