Publisher's Summary

Gabriel "Fox" Morrison is starting a brand new chapter in his life. He spent years drifting after his time in the military and finally felt ready to settle in one spot. This leads him to becoming the head detective of the recently opened Stonewall Investigations in Miami. His first case is one that not only hits close to home, but the result could have huge repercussions for more than just him and his client.   

It's a case so big, he decides to enlist some help.   

Jonah Brightly is ending a huge chapter of his life. Him and his girlfriend have zero spark and his professional career is in shambles after an on-work incident leaves him with more than a physical scar. A new job as a private detective would be a lifeline he so badly needed.   

He goes in for his interview and meets Fox, the man who changes everything for him.   

Both of them are rocked by an unexplainable force, and both are left questioning everything they've known in its wake. As they form a bond, they learn there's much more that brings them together than holds them apart. But can they keep fanning the flames of their newfound passion, or will they be consumed by the growing fire?   

Contains mature themes.

95% Romance 5% Investigation 100% Enjoyable

When Jonah joins the Miami office of Stonewall Investigations, his attraction to his new partner, Fox, has him questioning his sexuality. While 100% enjoyable, the story is about 95% romance with very little actual investigation - I didn’t mind! Great performance by Greg Boudreaux!!

Such an enjoyable listen

I loved this so much. I am officially a huge fan of Max Walker; he proves himself a great writer again and again. I have really enjoyed all of his characters and their connections with one another, and I love the whole Stonewall team.
The mystery that they are all trying to solve helps to create another element to help move the story along, but at the same time it does not drown out the story of Fox and Jonah either.
*slight spoiler* As for Fox and Jonah, some may not appreciate the pace in which they connected and got together, but it worked for me 100%. I have a hard time caring when stories don't have the characters connect until the very end, so I appreciated that we got to experience Fox and Jonah's attraction for one another throughout the entire story.
I am looking forward to what Max comes out with next!
Oh and of course Greg Boudreaux was amazing as always; he brings the characters to life beautifully!

Another perfect 10!

Listened straight through, totally worth the credit and can’t wait to get all of Max Walker’s books, this is my 2nd. And of course, Greg Boudreaux is one of my favorite narrators. Love his voice 🔥🔥

An okay start to a new series

I absolutely loved the original Stonewall series & was so very excited when we headed down to Miami. What I didn't like is the story was all about the two of them & basically all sex. The mystery took a back seat, way back seat. Even though I was disappointed with this one, that won't stop me from continuing on with the series.

Sexy and Intriguing, You Won’t Stop Listening.

This was my first introduction into the Stonewall Investigation universe and what a way to start. The main protagonists are crafted with such unique complexity that it truly felt like real people with complicated pasts trying their best to get a fresh start. You’ll see a good balance between crime/drama and romance, but this one does read as more of a romance than a crime drama which I loved. I must admit the romantic encounters between these two gentlemen were hot and I could not help but want to hear more. Overall it was a great read and led me to purchase three other books in this series. Highly recommended.
