Eric Sakai-Johnson joined the Navy SEALs to protect his country and the people he loves. After discharge, he finds himself relegated to protecting big pharma billionaire Aiden Milford from assassination attempts and kidnapping. Until Aiden reneges on a promise, fires Eric, and lets Eric’s mother die with millions of dollars in medical debt.
Now Eric is the kidnapper. Snatching Aiden’s twenty-two-year-old son, Chase, for a multi-million-dollar ransom is the only way to get justice. It’s time for Aiden to learn what it’s like when someone you love is at the mercy of forces beyond your control. Eric has it all planned out. The one thing he didn’t plan for is the intense erotic spark between him and Chase.
Chase has been chafing under his father’s autocratic control. A gay hookup app has been his only ticket to rebellion—to clandestine moments of freedom, excitement, and danger. Now it’s his ticket to a deep connection and amazing sex with his “captor.” On the rocky island where they’re sequestered, Chase finds Eric to be everything he wants in a man: quiet, strong, capable, and honorable . . . until he finds out he’s been captured for real.
I’ve gotta agree with one other reviewer of Watch Point… this book is not for everyone and there are some people who will have a real issue with it. I’ve also have to be clear on one point. I do not in any way condone what Eric did. I can also honestly say that I’ve never been in a situation as desperate as he found himself in, so I’m not judging his actions. There’s a very fine line drawn between right and wrong in Watch Point and Eric pushed it to the limit, but what Aiden Milford did to Eric, in my opinion, was much worse.
Even so, I wasn’t quite sure about this book in the beginning. Both Eric and Chase grew on me though. There was a slight twist that ended up changing my opinion totally. Not everything is exactly as it seems and there were quite a few surprises in Watch Point. My heart broke for both of them by the time they each realized exactly what was going on. I had no idea how they could get to their inevitable HEA, but I wanted it desperately for both Eric and Chase.
There was plenty of heat, some nail biting suspense and more. I’m glad I picked this one up and stuck with it even though I wasn’t quite sure how things could possibly work out. 😉
