No Boundaries (Phoenix, Inc. #1) by S.E. Jakes

A mechanic getting threatening letters and hidden traumas of the past: Cole is scared, unsure, and untrusting the motives of others. Taking the help from Phoenix inc. should be okay. Only,it’s not. The guy sent to help him seems adamant to prove that he is nothing but a fake and this is all just a ruse.

What happens next is a tension filled ride into the past and an awakening for would-be protector Marcus. He doesn’t want to feel a connection. He doesn’t want to believe, but when he finds explosives meant for him, he has nothing left to do than provide safety and find answers for Cole. A bond built from adrenaline and fear may not be lasting, but are they willing to try? Oh, yeah they are.

I liked these two together, but I gotta say I wish I knew going into this read that this was a new series based on a previous book. I felt lost at times, the trio from Phoenix Inc. were so propionate in the book that it felt more of a 50-50 split between this couple/trio.
It’s a good thing for a fan of the previous book, but confusing for the new reader.

All in all a solid 3 star read for me. I liked it :)

When your past closes in, running isn’t always an option

The jobs Marcus Lowry works for at Phoenix, Inc. Investigations are quick and easy, and they don’t give him the nightmares his days as a CIA operative did. That is, until he gets involved in a case that grabs him by the throat and won’t let go.

Cole Jacobs left behind his old life on the streets to make a name for himself rebuilding high-end and vintage cars and bikes. But when a stalker threatens to kill him—and to hurt anyone who stands in his way—his past closes in on him, and he’s not sure where to turn.

The last thing Marcus wants to do is take on a charity case, and to say that he and Cole don’t see eye to eye at first is putting things mildly. But when the first attempt on Cole’s life nearly kills them both, Marcus realizes that Cole is in real danger, and Cole is forced to reveal everything. Almost everything. Because Cole’s deepest secrets could destroy them both.
