You don't greet your new boss dressed like an underage rent boy. But when Jack Horwood - ace hacker and ex-MI6 operative - opens the door to Gareth Flynn, he's too busy to worry over details like that. And anyway, his potential new boss is his former commanding officer - the same guy Jack has had a crush on since he was 17. So he should understand, right?
When he applied for the job in Nancarrow Mining's corporate security division, Jack had hoped for peaceful days repelling cyber-attacks. Maybe a bit of corporate espionage on the side. His plans didn't include rescuing abused children, hunting pimps, or dealing with his overly protective and hot-as-hell boss, Gareth Flynn.
Walking away is not an option. Jack never takes the easy way out. More than that, meeting Gareth raises old ghosts that Jack needs to put to rest. Rescuing kids. Taking risks. Saving the day. Jack can do all that - but deciding what to do about his attraction to Gareth isn't the sort of cloak-and-dagger game Jack plays well. Yet Gareth, strong and smart and always on hand when needed, might be Jack's salvation.

Well - the book's terribly researched; if you're looking for an even vaguely feasible depiction of police or undercover work then don't go here!
The story however is entertaining and the depiction of the relationship is engaging enough.
I like the voices done by Fox Ballard and he does a half convincing London east-end accent – although the dropped consonants are over the top and just sounds sloppy. There's no excuse however even for an American not to know how to pronounce "The Thames" or "Twickenham” – it’s cringing every time you hear “The’Ames” and “TwickenHAM” ! Why isn’t this covered in the preparation?
