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.

4 out of 5 (very good)

Alpha Barman starts out with JT handing in his resignation from the team he works with, due to the fact that his best friend has killed his little sister. JT is grieving, breaking apart inside, and needs to make a clean break. Of course, it's not as simple as that, as part of that clean break is from his lover, also team leader, Mitch. Lines get blurred when you have an 'office' romance, and this is made clear here. Skip forward two years, and we re-meet JT, now known as Jake, where he co-owns a bar. His old team are sent to help him as Riley, his ex best friend, has escaped from jail and they think he is heading after Jake. 

There is lots going on in this book. It is quite obvious where the Riley story line is going, but the enjoyment was in the reasoning behind it, rather than the whodunnit! With new partnerships, old relationships, and more sexual tension than you can shake a stick at, turning Jake into a bumbling idiot rather than the highly trained military man that he is, this book has something for everyone. 

Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this was a brilliant start to a new series, that I can't wait to read more of. Definitely recommended by me.
