Long Time Gone (Hell or High Water #2) by S.E. Jakes

Prophet and Tom went in different directions for very different yet similar reasons. To keep the other safe. Both are dealing with issues in their own pasts and trying to keep their current reality from blowing up.

A hurricane is barreling into Tom’s hometown, Tom heads in to take care of his aging aunt. Unbeknownst to him Prophet was already there. Months of heartache and troubled thoughts melt away in one combustible reunion.

Okay guys, now for the down and dirty. I hate to say this but, I didn’t like it as much as I did book one. (Ducking under the couch) You know I likey the man love but this was a bit overboard for me. The initial love scene/scenes were a tad too long and somewhat unrealistic. I also wasn’t a fan of the older male couple commenting on “the show”. That’s just me. I found it an “ew” factor.

The plot/plots were good but compared with book one it felt scattered. At one point I had to stop and figure out what they were doing all over again. I kept getting confused on who was saying what and to whom. Who was leaving who and why just all melted together.

I wanted to love this one but for me it was just okay.

From the cover......

When a tornado meets a volcano, nothing is safe.

Soldier of fortune Prophet Drews always worked alone—until Tom Boudreaux became his partner. But when Tom walked away three months ago, ostensibly to keep Prophet safe, Prophet learned the true meaning of being alone. Everyone knows that Prophet, a Navy SEAL turned CIA spook turned mercenary, can look after himself. Which means he must’ve driven his lover away.

Even with half a world between them, Prophet can’t get the man out of his head. Maybe that’s why he’s in New Orleans in the middle of a hurricane, protecting Tom’s aunt. But the only looter around is Tom, bursting back into Prophet’s life. It turns out that Prophet’s been stuck in Tom’s head—and heart—too.

Their explosive reunion gets even hotter when Tom is arrested for murder. As they fight to clear his name, they delve deep into his past, finding enemies among everyone they meet. Staying alive in such a dangerous world is hard enough, but they soon discover that fighting to stay together is the most difficult thing they’ve ever done.
