Blurb: Can a hitman and a psychic negotiate a relationship while all hell breaks loose?
The world might not know who Lee Burton is, but it needs his black ops division and the work they do to keep it safe. Lee’s spent his life following orders—until he sees a kill jacket on Ernie Caulfield. Ernie isn’t a typical target, and something is very wrong with Burton’s chain of command.
Ernie’s life may seem adrift, but his every action helps to shelter his mind from the psychic storm raging within. When Lee Burton shows up to save him from assassins and club bunnies, Ernie seizes his hand and doesn’t look back. Burton is Ernie’s best bet in a tumultuous world, and after one day together, he’s pretty sure Lee knows Ernie is his destiny as well.
But when Burton refused Ernie’s contract, he kicked an entire piranha tank of bad guys, and Burton can’t rest until he takes down the rogue military unit that would try to kill a spacey psychic. Ernie’s in love with Burton and Burton’s confused as hell by Ernie—but Ernie’s not changing his mind and Burton can’t stay away. Psychics, assassins, and bad guys—throw them into the desert with a forbidden love affair and what could possibly go wrong?
Review: I really had to think about how I wanted to proceed with this review. The blurb is informative on where this story is headed. For those who follow the Fish Out of Water series, Hiding the Moon crosses over into A Few Good Fish (book three) and begins by giving a detailed look at Lee Burton and how he meets and becomes involved with Ernie Caulfield.
Burton and Ernie couldn’t be more opposite, as Burton is confident and has family that he cares about, and due to a tragic accident, Ernie has been on his own since he was seventeen. Ernie’s got a “gift” that at times can be dangerous to himself and can also give relief to others. And, he has a magical hold on Burton and keeps Burton wondering how he could let himself get so wrapped up in Ernie. Ernie really wants and needs a home, family, and cats, and Burton wants to make that a reality.
Ace and Sonny are back, along with Jai and Alba, as Burton takes Ernie to Victoriana to keep him safe while Burton is undercover trying to infiltrate Commander Karl Lacey’s rogue company of assassins. Burton’s also monitoring Jackson and Ellery, who Lacey wants to destroy. This all eventually leads to Burton’s POV that connects to A Few Good Fish, where Ace and Ellery are kidnapped and taken to Lacey’s fake military base.
Along with the drama, suspense, explosions and danger, Amy Lane still sneaks in her brilliant sense of humor, with some very interesting aliases and lines to make you chuckle. But, most of all, the author delivers some poetic, tender, heartwarming and heart-rending moments between her amazing cast of characters. Lane didn’t fail to make this a page-turner for me, and I have high hopes that the author will bring us some more exciting novels to add to this series. I give her high praise for the Fish Out of Water series and for giving Racing for the Sun and Hiding the Moon their rightful places in the series.
