Having read Cut & Run by Abigail Roux (+ Madeleine Urban who co-wrote the first 3), I’m DYING to get my hands on Shock & Awe, the first Sidewinder novella.
Here’s the goodreads synopsis:
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.
You know Nick. And you know Kelly. And after Touch & Geaux I’m sure your minds are reeling just as mine is.
Shock & Awe is out November 11, 2013.
