Jake Tyler walked out of Special Ops two years ago, a devastated, broken man after he discovered his sister brutally murdered by her husband, Riley. Since then he’s found a kind of peace running a rural bar. The last thing Jake Tyler expects is his former team to turn up with grim news. Jake’s ex-brother-in-law has escaped from prison and is heading Jake’s way. The team is here to protect Jake, whether he likes it or not – a decision reluctantly shared by their leader, Jake’s ex-lover Mitch Mitchelson.

Mitch is angry and hurting. The man he trusted – the man he adored more than anything – abandoned both his team and Mitch. Jake never gave Mitch a chance to help or come to terms with his desertion. Regardless of mission protocols, Mitch isn’t about to open his heart again to that kind of pain.

But the strong attraction between them can’t be denied. How are they ever going to work together when Mitch still resents Jake’s disappearance, and to Jake, the team represents everything that destroyed him in the first place? And meantime they wait for Riley to find them… and to settle the threat once and for all.

3.5 Stars

Alpha Barman is one of those books that really got my attention, I loved the blurb and as I read was totally sucked into the story and these characters. I really enjoy stories that can mix in mystery with the romance side as well. Jake and Mitch definitely had that going for them and more, they have a history together!

Jake walked away from his Ops Team after discovering his best friend Riley, who happened to be on their team, standing over his dead wife (who was Jake’s sister) with a bloody knife in his hand. He didn’t just walk away from the team though, he also walked away from his lover Mitch, without a goodbye, without a word. Now he runs a bar in Wyoming and lives a quiet life. That is until his old team, with Mitch still in the lead shows up in his bar informing him that Riley has escaped prison and is coming after Jake. Yeah, there’s a lot to this story!

There are a lot of things at play in this book, the idea of Riley coming after Jake, Jake dealing with seeing his team again after basically disappearing and finally Mitch. Jake hurt them both when he up and left and despite that pain it’s clear both men still care for each other. There’s testosterone, sexual tension and potential threats on every page! But, there’s also a lot of heart in this story as well as funny moments. The rest of the team as well as the regulars at Jake’s bar create quite the cast! And Howie and Si too – I really loved their little side story! At the heart of this book though, was the emotion. Jake has been through a lot and with the group back, vowing to protect him, there are feelings he will have to deal with and come to terms with some things that he thought were true but may not be.

All along I was rooting for Jake and Mitch, they just seemed to be so right for each other. I felt for everything they had to go through, both apart and together. I liked seeing them finally honest with each other and loved the way it all came together for them. Their connection really was the focus of the story.

There were certainly surprises in this story and I’m definitely curious to see what comes next in this series.
