Shock & Awe (Sidewinder #1) by Abigail Roux

Kicking off right after the events in Touch & Geaux (Cut & Run, #7), Kelly has made it home to his cabin in the woods. Helping him get there after staying with him his entire hospital stay is his team member and long time friend Nick. These two have been through wars together and more sketchy situations than either would care to remember, but what transpires between these two during Kelly’s recovery neither one saw coming.

Abi Roux has a knack for writing strong loveable men in uniform and this new spinoff series will be going down as a favorite, I’m sure. Not much of a case/mission in Shock & Awe, it’s more of a weekend-in-the-woods turned love.

After the “ending” we get a treat with Zane and hints of what’s to come in upcoming books in both series. I am fairly certain these will cross storylines repeatedly, and that’s a good thing!

Can’t wait for more!

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.
