Cabe got out of the gun-for-hire business the hard way—by nearly dying. Except then his former boss calls in one last favor for one final job. The mission should be simple: get a message to a retired operative in Alaska. But it puts Cabe face-to-face with the one man he doesn’t want to see and can never forget. Not after all the secrets and lies. Not after Brax almost killed him.
Brax Hughes lived hard and retired young to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Well, that was the plan, but before he can hang up his sniper rifle, he has one last mission: win back Kyle Cabe. Brax wants another chance, wants to come clean, but after months of lying to Cabe, he knows he could face a bullet—or worse—when they meet again. And they will meet. Brax made sure of that.
With a storm moving in and someone lurking outside the cabin, time is running out. Brax needs to talk fast and keep his weapons ready. And his best weapon is the truth.

Okay, so the premise of this one is kind of interesting when you think about the kind of guys who set this crazy meeting up. Love is love though and because of the circumstances, it’s pretty obvious that Cabe and Brax deserve a shot at a second chance.
I apologize ahead of time for being vague, but the background behind why these two are estranged is too… well… I’m not sure exactly how to explain it without giving something away. I honestly couldn’t think of any reason why Cabe would totally mistrust someone to the extent that he did until readers were clued in… Then I didn’t know how Brax could possibly get back Cabe’s trust, or if I even wanted him to. There was more to the story though and I loved the way things twisted and turned.
Basically, Stranded is a totally unexpected Holiday read that comes full circle in a very unique way. It also supports a very worthwhile charity, so picking it up is a win/win 😉
