Losing Better

Superpowered Love, #4

Loosing Better was a little hard to follow. It includes trips back to the past that were annoying at best and not too informative either. The mystery revolved around Andrew being guilty or not. The relationship between Gabriel and Andrew was a little stilted even with the constant sexual heat between them. I wouldn't read this one again.

Gabriel Genet's first mission for the Superpowered Agency starts out as a walk down memory lane for his suspect is none other than Andrew Wynne a face Gabriel hadn't seen since he was a teenager. Gabriel rebelled against his father’s affair with Andrews’s mother. Now it’s his mission to find out if Andrew is following after his mother’s footsteps in the vigilante profession. Andrew though knows that Gabriel is there to find out his secrets and through one betrayal after another between the two men the attraction is still strong and hot. But in the end can Gabriel and Andrew find a balance or will betrayal be their lot in life?

Book Blurb for Losing Better

Superpowered Special Agent Gabriel Genêt's first solo mission: go to Hooperstown, North Carolina, find evidence that Andrew Wynne is operating as a vigilante, then bring him in. Ten years ago, Gabriel spent a summer alternately torturing and hooking up with Andrew as they tried to ignore their parents' embarrassing affair. Of course Andrew, the big puppy dog, will be happy to see his old friend and never suspect a thing. Career-driven, cocky young Agent Genêt can hardly believe his luck.

A covert game of betrayals ensues. Things start out complicated, with Gabriel using Andrew's open arms and attraction to him for all it's worth. Gabriel tells himself he doesn't reciprocate, and then that he can control it, but it's too violent for either of them to deny. As he gets closer to the evidence he needs, a heady combination of nostalgia, genuine affection, and even understanding brings Andrew closer to him. Dangerously close, in every sense.

The stakes are much higher than just their livelihoods. Gabriel begins to fear it'll come down to a choice between everything he's ever believed in, wanted, and stood for--and the only love he's ever known.
