ANY MEANS NECESSARY
FATED HEART SERIES - BOOK SEVEN
AIMEE NICOLE WALKER
I wasn’t proud of the man I’d become – selfish, spoiled, and cynical. Mark Bradley’s reappearance in my life made me want to be a better man. It had been more than two decades since we’d last seen each other and neither of us resembled the kids we used to be. Our lives went in completely different directions and I never thought I’d see him again, let alone hire him as the head of my security team.
The attraction and chemistry between us was immediate and intense, but Mark had built walls around him that I wasn’t able to penetrate. It wasn’t in my nature to accept that I would never have the person I wanted most in life, so I pushed. Mistrust and missteps nearly ruined us before we even had a chance to begin. Then there was the little problem of someone wanting me dead.
Mark “Deacon” Bradley…
Accepting a job working for Mitchell Heston was probably one of the biggest mistakes I’d ever made, but then why did it feel so right? We had nothing in common except a past that neither of us could change. What did I have to offer someone of Mitch’s caliber? He was a wealthy playboy and I was a battle hardened soldier with demons that threatened to ruin any chance of happiness for me. That didn’t stop me from wanting him, regardless of the consequences.
None of my doubts mattered once Mitch’s life was in danger. My sole focus became keeping him safe so that we could explore the feelings that were growing between us. To do that, I would sacrifice anything and protect him by any means necessary.
Any Means Necessary is book 7 in the Fated Hearts series and can be read alone or as part of the series. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults 18 and older.
Oh man, this is going to be bittersweet. I have loved this series from the very beginning and knowing this is the last book is sad and a little depressing. And, in true Aimee N Walker fashion, I haven't even passed the first page and I'm already feeling a little teary eyed. That's because we first meet Mark and Mitch as teenagers in foster care and they didn't realize it then but those shared moments alone under the roof of foster parents, Dorey and Howard Davis, would define and determine who they would become as men years down the road.
Present day brings us twenty plus years later and two very determined, gruff, sometimes cold, set in their own ways, men who want each other with a fervid passion, but afraid of what it may mean if they give into those desires and cravings, so what do they do? They make each other miserable instead.
No matter how much his face matured or his body had grown, his dark eyes remained the same.
HOT. HUNGRY. SEEKING.
It's a bumpy road, and I was really hating Mitch with the escorts and thought it served him right when Mark allowed his jealous streak to run amok before he corrected him. But when danger and threats enter and Mitch has someone out to get him, all bets are off, no more playing games, but that's not the only place the heat ramps up.
As they work together trying to figure out who is behind the threats, Mark and Mitch also work together on their past and hopefully on their future. They had a lot of misunderstandings that played a hand in how they behaved over the years but now they are finally clearing the air and it looks promising for their happy ever after.
Being familiar with every book in the series always adds so much more enjoyment when characters from books past stroll through and I can't recommend enough to read each book in this series. As I said, this is bittersweet that we are at the end, but it's a series that will be read over and over and all of the characters are like family and will be missed but I know where we they are when I need a pick me up.
Any Means Necessary has mystery with twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end. I thought I knew, and then I wasn't sure, so the author kept me guessing. And, the surprises don't stop there so keep reading. You will love the end. 5 Stars
