The truth is rarely seen on the surface, and getting to it might mean digging deep….
After a devastating accident and a long stay in the hospital, the last thing petroleum engineer Sean Wilkinson wants to deal with is the settlement the oil company tries to force on him. He’ll never be able to work in his field again, his education is all but useless, and his surgeons are pessimistic about whether he’ll ever walk again. He needs someone in his corner, but most lawyers take one look at his tattoo-covered foster father and turn their backs. It’s just Sean’s luck that the one attorney willing to give him a chance is also the hottest guy he’s ever seen.
As a trial lawyer, Nate Delany has a lot to prove—to his father, the world, and himself. Sean intrigues Nate, and he struggles to reconcile the gifted tattoo artist he can’t stop fantasizing about with the quiet, brilliant engineer. His investigation reveals facts left out of the accident report—including an illicit affair, greedy coworkers, and a vicious corporation that will do anything to protect its bottom line. When Sean’s life is threatened, winning Sean’s case, and his heart, becomes a lot more dangerous.
Pins and Needles by A.J. Thomas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It's interesting that I'm the one who's usually bored during the 'technical' reading, had never bored at all. There's so much information about the law and things with Sean's job that I read without skimming.
This is actually more 'stories' about how Nate and Sean handled the case entirely, bot with Nate's job and Sean's very complicated case.
There are some romantic moments between the, not much heat (imo), because I think the author really focused on the mystery in this story.
It's a really good story, but I need more steam and more romance between Nate and Sean. They deserved it after all.
The chemistry was there, slowly developing, but I don't know, I need 'more' of Sean and Nate.
But the case was really distracted me for Nate and Sean's romance, so yeah, I enjoyed the whole story. The ending though, was a 'promised', of a HEA.
But most of all, this is about family, I'm not happy about part of Nate's family didn't sit well with him, but I'm glad that Sean's family problem with Hawk ended really good.
Good story, good mystery, and two men in love, what's not to love?
