Gabriel “Gator “ Moreno receives a phone call from his childhood friend, Manny Cortez asking Gator to return to Florida to protect his baby sister. While Gator gave up his criminal leanings and became a Navy SEAL, Manny stayed in Florida, living a life of crime and now he has ticked off the El Rey drug cartel. Gabe can’t say no to Manny so he heads down to Florida to see what he can do to help out his friend. Alysa Cortez never imagined that Gabe would return to Florida or that she would still have feelings for him after all these years. Angry at Gabe after she assumed he turned on Manny when the two got arrested as teens, she really isn’t happy that Gabe is back in town. Will Gabe be able to protect Alysa? Can the couple work past their issues and years of separation to find true love?
I am always excited when I get my hands on a book by these two authors. I always know I am in for a well researched book with strong characters and a lot of heat. Gator is another example of the fantastic writing this duo produces.
