Long Time Gone (Hell or High Water #2) by SE Jakes

When a tornado meets a volcano, nothing is safe.

Soldier of fortune Prophet Drews always worked alone—until Tom Boudreaux became his partner. But when Tom walked away three months ago, ostensibly to keep Prophet safe, Prophet learned the true meaning of being alone. Everyone knows that Prophet, a Navy SEAL turned CIA spook turned mercenary, can look after himself. Which means he must’ve driven his lover away.

Even with half a world between them, Prophet can’t get the man out of his head. Maybe that’s why he’s in New Orleans in the middle of a hurricane, protecting Tom’s aunt. But the only looter around is Tom, bursting back into Prophet’s life. It turns out that Prophet’s been stuck in Tom’s head—and heart—too.

Their explosive reunion gets even hotter when Tom is arrested for murder. As they fight to clear his name, they delve deep into his past, finding enemies among everyone they meet. Staying alive in such a dangerous world is hard enough, but they soon discover that fighting to stay together is the most difficult thing they’ve ever done.

Never has so much happened with so little action. That didn't come out the exact way I mean it. There is plenty of action, what with a hurricane, murders, police chases, swamps, alligators, stoners and even an air boat. But for most of the book it's just Tom and Prophet alone in a cabin in the swamp and believe me....that is such a good thing! They finally get to confront each other, their fears and their future together and they come out of that swamp with a better partnership then when they went in. These two strong alpha men realized so much about themselves and each other, not to say everything is all sunshine and roses, they are far from that, but at least they're on the same chapter if not the same page.

I loved everything about this book. The men, the storyline, the setting, the angst, and definitely the sex (no wonder that swamp was so steamy with those two in it). I can't wait for more in this series. I'm dying to know more about the über mysterious Cillian and those men following Prophet around doing good deeds without being seen. Love it love it love it! I think anybody who isn't offended by two men loving each other and loving hard would enjoy this book and hopefully fall for these guys too. They remind me so much of Ty and Zane (from the Cut & Run series by Abigail Roux and Madeline Urban) mixed with a little Will and Taylor (Dangerous Ground by Josh Lanyon) and that is never a bad combination.
