Length: 90,000 words approx. — Cover Design: Natasha Snow
“This is not the night you die.”
After years of working for a loan shark, Robert is done with blood and violence. All he has to show for it is a bag of money and a lifetime of regrets. There’s no other way out of his line of work than in a body bag.
So Robert decides to die.
But on the night he chooses to seal his own fate, destiny offers him a chance at redemption. When Robert saves a handsome young escort from a terrible death, he has no idea he is setting in motion much more than one last attempt at proving that inside the hardened shell, he is a decent human being.
Charming, quick-witted, and full of smiles, Nathan is all Robert could dream of. He’s also ready to fall into the arms of his gruff protector. Robert, on the other hand, has never been with a man and will first need to fight his own demons if he is to accept that his whole being wants to make Nathan his.
With his former boss hunting them both, time is ticking, and Robert might just not get the chance to decide before it’s too late. More importantly though, Robert will stop at nothing to protect the man who’s made him feel alive again, the man who is the only thing between him and the abyss.
“I never had to think much about death before, but I did yesterday. I thought I would die. In a hole. Covered with dirt. Suffocate underground. But then you saved me.”

Gah! I freaking love this book!
Hold on! Hold on to me! This book reminds me of the song, Unsteady by the Ambassadors. Gut-wrenching, painful, and beautiful—all wrapped up so perfectly by the end.
I'm having trouble connecting to any book, as of late, and I'm blaming it on these two amazing authors who write such poignant and soul-sucking characters that after you read their work nothing else seems to compare. Sorry...that's just how it is, at the moment.
Robert—in denial, unworthy, unsteady, ready to throw in the towel, tired of his life and his hard road—stumbles across someone in desperate need of help.
Making a decision that will alter the course of his life and future, he risks his own life and the life of his family to help Nathan.
Deciding to save a life—instead of taking one—sets both Robert and Nathan on a path of discovery, prejudice, and ultimately, acceptance, while battling a lifetime of demons Robert has been dealing with his whole life.
The mind is a powerful thing, the heart, desire, lust, and love which all lead to making decisions that will put Nathan in the most vulnerable position forcing him to make a choice. Save himself or fight for Robert.
We met in death is an intense and powerful, yet frustrating read, only in the best of ways, and had me on the edge of my seat, completely zoned out to my surroundings. It's action-packed and the chemistry and sex between these two, polar opposite men, will send fire up your spine and goosebumps up your arms.
A must read for any action, thrill-seeking lover.

Meet the authors
K. A. Merikan is the pen name for Kat and Agnes Merikan, a team of writers, who are taken for sisters with surprising regularity. Kat’s the mean sergeant and survival specialist of the duo, never hesitating to kick Agnes’s ass when she’s slacking off. Her memory works like an easy-access catalogue, which allows her to keep up with both book details and social media. Also works as the emergency GPS. Agnes is the Merikan nitpicker, usually found busy with formatting and research. Her attention tends to be scattered, and despite pushing thirty, she needs to apply makeup to buy alcohol. Self-proclaimed queen of the roads.
They love the weird and wonderful, stepping out of the box, and bending stereotypes both in life and books. When you pick up a Merikan book, there’s one thing you can be sure of – it will be full of surprises.
