War veteran Hunter Tennison returns home physically and emotionally scarred. Unable to bear feeling anything, Hunter uses pain to quiet the chaos and to keep his emotions from destroying him. Hunter dare not risk falling in love. He can’t let anyone get close enough to see the violence inside him.In business and relationships, Alexander Quick is practical and rational. The first time Alex looks into Hunter’s eyes, he sees the damaged soul within, and adamantly tells himself not to get involved. Too many things could go haywire with a volatile man like Hunter, and Alex doesn’t enter into relationships where he cannot predict the outcome.Then Alex learns his dearest friend and mentor is ill. The news sends him reeling. Alex suddenly sees his life isn’t as perfect as he thought. An ache for something real and meaningful stirs in Alex, and Hunter’s broken soul draws him in like a beacon on the blackest night.Two men, one running like hell from love and the other opening himself to the emotion for the first time, collide. Hunter and Alex begin a darkly sexual relationship bound to explode. In the aftermath, can Alex make Hunter believe their love is powerful enough to heal his scars?

Ok, I completely forgot to finish this review. It's not an easy one as the book deals with a lot of very dark things.
It tells the story of Hunter Tennison, the older brother of Sarah, the heroine of Cameron Dane's last book "Becoming Three" in the Quinten series. We already knew that Hunter served in the wars in Afghanistan and Irak and that he hasn't contacted his sister for over a year. We didn't know why but I wasn't really understanding. Now we got to know that Hunter is hurt, outside and mainly inside. He lost so many friends during his army time that he can't deal with the pain and anger anymore. He voluntary isolates himself from everyone, especially people he cares about. Not the best time to be attracted to Alexander Quick. But both parties feel the almost overwhelming pull. But Hunter isn't stable and in order to not hurt anyone he rather hurts himself.

I have read pretty much all books of the Quinten Series. All the heros and heroins have to overcome some serious problems. But this book was a lot darker, almost painful to read. Hunter is only a shell of his former self and tries to function in a world he doesn't care about. At the same time he also doesn't want anyone to know how he feels as he thinks that it his his problem and that he is indeed weak. It was hard for me to read about Hunter. His sister is overly happy that he is back and than he behaves like an ass. And though the reader knows why he is behaving like this, it's still painful to read. That the golden boy, Alex Quick, is fascinated by Hunter seemed odd to me. Of course I know the old saying that opposites attract each other, but still. But we also get to know that Alex is fighting with his own ghosts from the past, which makes the whole "relationship" more even. There are a few very brutal, bloddy scenes in this book, which I didn't enjoy at all. And though I think that the post-war description of Hunter's mind is quite accurate it doesn't make for light entertaining. Overall a very intense read, which I don't want to miss but may not read again.

Apparently I’m going to comment on all of your m/m reviews, is just that I’m always happy to find blogs that review them because I’m a huge fan of the genre… This series is on my TBR pile, I loved Grey’s Awakening and I’m about halfway through the last book on the Quinn Security series, this series will be next. I do love intense reads though, but as you said I usually only read them once.
