Blurb: An act of violence destroys his family and ends the life he knows. To escape his haunted past, he joins the military, where, as a sniper, he is trained to kill with precision and detachment. When a covert organization offers him a new purpose, he becomes Haven, an operative devoted to protecting the innocent when he can and avenging them when he cannot.
After ten years of battling the evil in the world, the life no longer holds the attraction or meaning it once had, and he’s ready to walk away. Then he meets Samuel, a young man forced from the age of twelve to work as a sex slave. If ever a man had a need for Haven, it is this one.
Yet nothing about this growing relationship is one-sided. Sammy gives Haven a stability he’s never known, and Haven becomes the rock upon which Sammy knows he can depend.
When Sammy reveals something about the enemy Haven has been hunting for months, Sammy fears it will destroy what they’ve built and he’ll lose his home in Haven’s heart.
Review: This was my first Parker Williams book and I really enjoyed it. This book is hard, gritty and sad at moments. I loved the relationship between Haven and Kelly, who is Haven's, I would say assistant, but he's so much more. The lies, the secret government agency, the straight up torture made this book a good read for me. I like darker books though. I will say that if you can't read about rape and murder you might skip it. I heard that there will be a book two that continues with Haven and Samuel, and I'm looking forward it reading it.
As much as I liked the whole storyline with Haven working for a secret government agency, I was not a fan of how Samuel took control of Haven in the relationship. I wanted Haven to be the stronger of the two, with everything that Samuel went through I wanted Haven to rescue him more.
