Former Navy SEAL turned covert agent Wes Halsted spent his days—and weeks and months—being someone else. But with his cover blown and his injuries requiring months of recuperation, he must learn how to be himself again.
Only…he'd rather save his issues for another day and get to know a stressed-out, suited-up businessman instead.
Tom Esbeck has everything under control. Meal plans, workout plans, project plans, five-year plans. A plan for everything and everything according to plan.
Except there's no plan for a surprise—and shirtless—encounter with the built-for-sin spy he'd crushed on years ago.
But crushes—and spies—burn out fast.
MISSING IN ACTION is a full-length steamy contemporary romance standalone with strong ties to the Walsh Series.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Someone please tell me how this is my first book from Kate Canterbary?? I have been missing out big time (and I will be rectifying that situation for sure) because holy wow did I devour Missing In Action.
Wes was great. I really liked the big broody hero who deep down just wanted to be himself but didn't know how to let go. Didn't know who he was without the job that consumed him for half his life. What he did know was he wanted Tom. Mmm mmmm mmm Tom! He was refined and enjoyed the ruled he made for himself inside his well structured life. But then Wes came along in all his shirtless glory and the rules changed.
Though their histories were vastly different, they were both still lost and searching. Yearning for acceptance. Not just from their families but of themselves. Of who they truly were. And in each other they found that safe place to land. Until their fears took hold and sent them running to their corners.
I loved the family dynamic in this book (obviously I was missing things but not having met the Washes sooner but I digress). The love was pure and deep and unconditional and you could feel it pouring off the pages. Though, at its heart, Missing in Action was a journey of self discovery. Tom and Wes grew so much in who they were as individuals and as a couple. A tip of the hat to Kate Canterbary as it was so refreshing to see a MM romance where both characters were so strong but also so vulnerable with each other. And that ending...sigh. I'm glad that the door is open for more of them in the future.
