Ex-Special Forces Communications Sergeant Jacopo “Jack” Constantino heads the cybersecurity department at Four Kings Security, working with his tech-savvy team to provide clients with state-of-the-art security systems. But life for Jack is pretty uneventful—despite the exploits with his brothers-in-arms—and he finds himself longing for a little more excitement.

Be careful what you wish for.

Two years ago, Fitz Harlow captured Jack’s heart and walked away with it. Now he’s back.

Fitz spent the last two years picking up the pieces of his life after a disastrous relationship. After much therapy, and ice cream, Fitz leaves the fashion world behind and returns home to St. Augustine to open his own high-end salon, Hair Comes Trouble. Now Fitz finally has the quiet, peaceful life he’s wanted for so long. There’s only one thing missing, or rather, one man missing, but Fitz has his doubts. With Jack, he’s not just gaining a boyfriend—he’s gaining a boyfriend, his family of mischief-magnet ex-Green Berets, and one highly opinionated Belgian Malinois.

Fitz and Jack discover their connection has only grown stronger over time, thanks in part to meddling friends, but just as they start to pick up where they left off, someone takes exception to their reunion. Danger hides in the shadows, a stalker determined to keep Fitz out of Jack’s life, no matter the cost. With the odds stacked against them, can Jack and Fitz win a battle against an unknown enemy, or will Jack lose Fitz forever?

The Kings: Wild Cards series is a spin-off of the Four Kings Security series.

Excerpt

Oh God. Jack covered his face with his hands. Just what he didn’t need.

“What is it?” Ace asked, no doubt peeking over Joker’s shoulder, because although Joker was nosy, no one beat him in the meddling department like Ace. Anston Sharpe was worse than the granny living next door who knew more about you than your family did.

“A text from Fitz.”

Jack ignored the smile in Joker’s voice. He moved his hands and sighed. The two were grinning like idiots.

“It’s nothing. Just a reminder about my upcoming hair appointment.” Why the hell had he agreed to get his hair cut at Hair Comes Trouble? Right, because Fitz’s best friend, Laz, had given Jack the puppy eyes and Jack was too much of a sucker to say no. Sometimes friends sucked.

“There’s a kissy-face emoji after it, though,” Ace pointed out.

“I’m sure he adds that to all his texts.”

“No, he doesn’t,” Ace said, removing his phone from his pocket. He tapped away at it before showing Jack his text from Fitz. “My emoji is looking at me with suspicion. Like, what is that? Why do I get the suspicion emoji? Is he expecting me to make off with his hair dryer? Give him a bad review on Yelp? Why do you get a kissy face and I get apprehension?”

“Because you’re shady as fuck,” Joker said with a snort.

“Screw you. What emoji did you get?”

“I got a happy face and a little service dog emoji for Chip.”

“What the hell? I mean, Chip I get. Everyone loves him, but why do you get a happy face? No one likes you.”

Joker grinned smugly. “My emoji and my dog’s emoji say otherwise.”

“Whatever.” Ace rolled his eyes before turning that intense gold-green gaze on Jack. “So… you gonna call him?”

Jack shook his head. “Nope. It was a confirmation appointment. From his salon, I might add. Not a personal text.”

“But it had a kissy-face emoji,” Ace said, waggling his eyebrows.

“It was probably a mistake. Everyone, get out of my van.”

Heart-pounding thrilling opener to this new series from Charlie Cochet

44300880._SY475_Stacking the Deck by Charlie Cochet

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Perfect start to this spin-off from the Four Kings series.

While I guessed the bad guy pretty early on, it never stopped me from enjoying what turned out to be a thrilling, heart-pounding, pitch perfect romantic suspense.

At times I was gasping out loud and at others I was laughing my head off and that’s what puts Charlie’s books onto my favourites shelf regularly.

Jack and Fitz were so cute together, but also so incredibly connected from the start. They just click and the emotional levels they reach are powerfully intimate.

The rest of the gang are obviously all around and it’s great to see they’re all as loved up and I’m stoked to see where the series is going next.

I’m betting Charlie is going to be a big meanie and lead Joker until last though 😁

Brilliant book, read the Four Kings Security books first though as it’ll help with all the jokes and relationship dynamics.

Blurb

Twelve years ago, Daniel McCafferty walked away from the man he loved without a backward glance. He threw himself into his father’s business as heir apparent of their vicious criminal empire in Manchester. Forced to deny who he was, who he loved, he buried himself in work and drink.

Christian’s life is steady. He has a good business, good friends, but he’s never had a lasting relationship. Second cousin to Daniel, they fell hard for each other one hot summer long ago. When Christian needed him the most, Daniel walked away. It broke something inside him. Over the last year, Christian asked Daniel for help with a lowlife named Bryce. Daniel gave it. Unstintingly.

When Daniel’s father dies unexpectedly, Christian stands by him. Offers him comfort. But when Bryce rears his ugly head again, and Christian is in grave danger, Daniel whisks him away to Europe.

Away from normality, Daniel and Christian are thrown together in the heat of the Mediterranean sun. Daniel’s walls tumble, and for the first time he thinks that just maybe, it can work. All he has to do is keep secret the real reason he left Christian.

*Can be read as a standalone.

About The Author

Copy of Signature copy.jpg

My name is Ruby Moone and I love books. All kinds of books. My weakness is for romance, and that can be any kind, but I am particularly fond of historical and paranormal.

I decided to write gay romance after reading some fantastic books and falling in love with the genre, so am really thrilled to have my work published here. The day job takes up a lot of my time, but every other spare moment finds me writing or reading.

I live in the North West of England with my husband who thinks that I live in two worlds. The real world and in the world in my head…he probably has a point!
