Sudden Love by April Kelley
Series: Lakehouse Security Series #1
Published by eXtasy Books Genres: Contemporary, MM
The Newell brothers pooled their resources for the start up of Lakehouse Security. They’ve become so successful it’s been necessary to bring in two of their best friends and they’re considering adding more employees in the near future. Who knew that bodyguards and investigators were in such high demand?
Sheriff Griffin isn’t their favorite person, but when he asks them to look into a couple of missing person cases where the young men are gay like the majority of the Newell brothers they can’t say no. The sheriff believes that a nearby religious cult is responsible for the missing boys. He can’t touch them, however Xander Newell can at least check things out.
Aaron Keller has lost track of time in the basement cage. His family lives at the compound but the other two guys caged alongside him were taken from the outside. He’s in this mess because someone saw him kissing another boy. Cold and starving things are looking pretty bleak until Aaron’s sister sneaks in and frees him. Somehow Aaron has to find the strength to get help for himself and the other two before it’s too late. Hopefully someone will care that the compound is targeting gays.
Engaging characters and a sensitive subject introduce readers to the Lakehouse Security series. Sudden Love neatly uncovers the angst of bigotry. Xander and Aaron’s romance is sweet and tender while the plotline manages to convey the danger they are in. As their Sudden Love unfolds however, readers are left wondering when the others will be rescued.
