Trey’s waited long enough to take what he needs.

Trey Jamison leads an elite mercenary team that specializes in snatch and grabs. Things have been going well – well enough that he’s letting himself notice Kai Tanaka, fellow Texan and team long-range sniper.

Kai hasn’t made any secret of his attraction to Trey. But the boss is the boss, and it isn’t until the team gets compromised and Kai is captured during a job that Trey lets himself admit the feelings he has for his captured teammate.

Book Review

‘Setting His Sights’ starts with a bang and doesn’t let up. Whether it’s the “snatch and grab” of kidnapped victims in need of rescue or the burning passion between team leader Trey and sniper Kai, this exciting novella doesn’t pull any punches. The team members work well together, and the snarky banter between all of them was as much fun as watching Trey and Kai chomping at the bit for some downtime so they could finally go at it between the sheets. They’ve been trying to keep it professional for a long time – just because – and this is the story of their restraint finally running out. At one point Trey is so hot for Kai that he considers starting a fight because he figures that will lead to some physical action he can use to get what he wants.

Kai is a sniper with enough perseverance to wait for just the right moment. He has, so far, admired Trey from afar because he is the boss. I guess it’s a leftover from being in the military – or something. When Kai gets captured during one of their increasingly FUBARed recent missions, he has some time to think and consider his priorities. His focus is still on keeping the team out of trouble, so he has to wait a little – and his need and desire keep growing by the page.

Trey is the team leader, and as such has some concerns about not playing favorites. Not that he has succeeded at hiding his desire for Kai, the other team members are already joking around about their as-yet nonexistent relationship – and seem okay with it. When Trey sees Kai in danger though, taken prisoner by the same people who grabbed the journalists the team is supposed to extract, Trey finally gets with the program and makes his first move. In the middle of the jungle, no less, much to my amusement. It only gets hotter after that!

If you like secret mercenary teams whose members are tougher than tough but have each other’s backs all the way, if you want to see two macho men dance around each other until they snap and give in to their desire, and if you’re looking for an action-packed read with lots of humor, camaraderie, and hot man-on-man activity, then you will probably like this novella.
