Summary

President Jack Spiers and former Secret Service agent Ethan Reichenbach throw caution to the wind, committing themselves publicly as the first out male lovers and partners to occupy the White House. Jack moves Ethan into the Residence, but as Ethan settles into his new role as first gentleman of the United States, not everyone is thrilled with their choices. When it seems like the world turns against them, Jack and Ethan must turn to each other, finding the strength together to press on.

In the chaos, Jack's relationship with Russian President Sergey Puchkov grows closer, and the two nations find themselves working almost as allies. But President Puchkov has secrets of his own, secrets that could rip everything apart. And Ethan steps back into the action with Lieutenant Adam Cooper, taking charge of a covert kill team tasked with hunting down General Madigan once and for all.

But Madigan is elusive, and his dangerous reach is long. He strikes at Jack and Ethan from the shadowy corners of the globe, unraveling their entire world. As the mad general draws new allies together, he is single-minded in his quest to destroy the only two men who ever beat him.

Contains mature themes.

Whatever next !!!!

This amazing, thrilling story continues from the end of book 1.
It's relentless, the action never ending, and boy, that narration makes the story even more exciting.
You cannot help but be swept away.

Great story, mediocre narration...

First to admit that John Solo is not one of my favourite narrators, although I loved his interpretation of Will and Patrick in the series Will & Patrick Wake Up Married. He really irritates the hell out of me sometimes with the silly intonations he uses during recording, so to discover he was narrating this series was a shock; however, I have to admit that overall I was pleasantly surprised by this audio. His inclination to go overboard with his intonations was relatively subdued, and the only real niggles I had were with his Russian accent [pretty awful], his pronunciation of some Russian words such as Mos-cow [heavy emphasis on the cow 😏] and the fact that the ARCTIC [The Arctic is a polar region located at the northernmost part of Earth] has somehow become 'Artic' in his narration. It's not just an one-off deal either; his narration on Enemy Within is exactly the same, so this is me putting up and shutting up 🤐, and coming to terms with the fact that he [and the entire Tantor production team] aren't aware that the word is ARCTIC [heavy emphasis on the middle C 😉].

Amazing book

Great follow up to the first book in the series. I thought I might lose interest as their relationship was already established, and I usually enjoy books for the delicious relationship build up - but that wasn’t an issue at all. Brilliant relationship plot, exciting action plot and pace, and love the side characters too. I’m relieved to see the next book in the series has already been released as this one leads directly into that.

Awesome!

This book is fabulous! Tal Bauer's books are wonderfully exciting and well written. Put together with John Solo's performance- WOW! John Solo makes the characters in this book come alive with his narration. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Great job!!

Great story. Great narration.

Political intrigue, secret romances, spies, murder, nations on the brink of war, a dash of science fiction that is close enough to reality to be believable, intense character development, glances into life in multiple cultures, what doesn't happen in this book? I think there might have even been a mention of a unicorn.

This story is fast paced, intense, and action packed, but the author does an amazing job of including tender and romantic moments that give the reader a chance to catch their breath and a chance to get to know the characters a little better.

The narration was nicely done for such an intense read. John Solo gave each character a distinct voice, and he also did a great job of transitioning from action scenes to quieter moments.

Overall a great read/listen that is worth visiting multiple times.

5 stars all the way

This series of books is one of my all time favorites and I really didn’t think they could get any better. But I was wrong. John Solo not only hit all the high parts with perfection, he brought out new reactions and feelings to a story that I’ve read multiple times.

I highly recommend these books, and this narrator.

Action and adventure!

Military, political conspiracies with a touch of sci-fi, and some romance, did I say romance?
Engaging, involving and great world building. I can't wait for the next book!

It just gets better. M/M Romance + Suspense, Thriller

This story just gets better. As I said previously I like the thriller + m/m romance angle. I’ve never read anything similar and it’s really done well here. The use of politics, war and violence set against so many enjoyable relationships. I really like how this reads and I find the narrator FANTASTIC. John Solo has so many voices. It’s crazy but he keeps them unique enough that you can keep everyone straight. It’s so good. The other huge thing here is that this is a long audiobook. The author probably could have broken this up into multiple books that would be decent on their own. But given us over 20 hours us so amazing. This is absolutely worth the time & credit.

Warms heart then Rips it out

This is the second book in the series and just as excellent as the first. The first half is puppies and rainbows and the second half is war and violence. So much stuff happens it’s at least two books in one.

I recommend listening to the first book twice if you want to absolutely follow everything.

Wow!!

Still processing this one - but cannot express all that I liked about it by text. I’m just so stunned about the developments, and never saw any of the twists coming. Action packed and thrilling, Mr. Bauer surpassed my wildest expectations with this sequel. I’ve never had an audiobook emotionally effect me like this one and I have to attribute that to the writing and performance by Mr. Solo as well.

100/10 would recommend, simply put this is the embodiment of audiobook entertainment.

Utterly devastatingly brilliant

My first thought after finishing those two first books was: WHEN can we expect book 3? Tal Bauer breaks you down and then builds you up again, all without losing the breathless pace of the story. I cannot begin to explain how captivated I was, listening to John Solo's brilliant narration. He is not merely a narrator, but a gifted voice actor. This was a book I lay thinking about when I could not sleep at night. Brilliant.

One of the best!

I could not stop listening! This is the book where the heroes are broken, and the enemy mostly prevails and it was gut wrenching! The romance and intrigue and action just had me from start to finish. Mr Solo does an excellent job with the different characters. Cannot wait to get into the next installment.
