The heart’s a resilient beast

Eight months after the car crash that changed everything, FBI agent Aidan Talley is back at work. New department, new case and a new partner. Smart, athletic and handsome, Jameson Walker is twelve years his junior. Even if Aidan was ready to move on—and he's not—Jamie is off-limits. 

Jamie's lusted after Aidan for three years, and the chance to work with San Francisco's top agent directly is too good to pass up. Aidan is prickly—to put it mildly—but a growing cyber threat soon proves Jamie's skills invaluable. 

Jamie's talents paint a target on his back, and Aidan is determined to protect him. But with hack after hack threatening a high-security biocontainment facility, time is running out to thwart a deadly terrorist attack. They'll have to filter out distractions, on the case and in their partnership, to identify the real enemy, solve the case and save thousands of lives, including their own.

Walker’s hand covered his where it lay on the bar, and Aidan was captivated by its size and warmth, by the blanket of comfort it provided. When he withdrew it a moment later, Aidan instantly missed the contact, not realizing until then how desperately he’d needed it after the awful day. But then Walker turned on his stool, propped an elbow on the bar behind him, and their shoulders brushed, renewing the connection. “This is such a cool place.”
“Been here before?”
“Once, on a date.”
Aidan laughed, and Walker twisted, angling toward him. “Something funny?”
“My first date was here,” he confessed, staring into his bourbon glass. “If you consider a quinceaƱera after-party with my family and hers a real date.”
“So you’ve dated both, then—men and women?”
Aidan’s head jerked up, meeting Walker’s curious eyes. Not the question he’d anticipated. It wasn’t a stretch to say they’d become friends, but he didn’t fancy a gossip about his love life with Walker any more than he had with his sisters. Not today, on his wedding anniversary that wasn’t.
“When I was younger.” He intended to leave it at that, then the bourbon got the better of him again. “And you?”
Gaze steady, Walker answered, “Only men.”
And Aidan’s world tilted, thrown off balance yet again by Jameson Walker. He’d have fallen off his stool too if Walker hadn’t shot out a hand and grasped him by the arm, keeping him upright. “You okay, Irish?”
“You’re not straight?”
“Nope.” He dropped his hand and looked away. “Never have been, never will be.”
Aidan cast his mind back over the past couple weeks. To how those same eyes darkened tonight as Aidan blatantly checked him out. To Walker’s abrupt movements and deflections whenever Aidan flashed him a grin, to his sharp, inhaled breaths if they passed too close, to the blush that colored his cheeks when Aidan favored him with a compliment, and the wounded look when he called him kid. To the way Walker had dropped his voice and described his eyes that first day together in the cave.
He’d been flirting. Walker was gay. And interested, in him.
And down goes Frazier, he heard Chloe cheer in his head.
Shit. And fuck and damn while he was at it.
