Title: Embers
Author: Kate Sherwood
Series: Common Law, #2
Genre: MM Romance, Mystery/Suspense
Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Publication Date: February 6th 2017

Small town—big problems. Jericho Crewe is back in Mosely, Montana, trying to deal with police corruption, interfering feds, his newly discovered family members, and, of course, Wade Granger.

He doesn’t really need a biker war on top of it all, but as the bodies start to pile up, it becomes pretty clear that’s what he’s got. Not only that, but Wade’s involved somehow, and as soon as Wade is a part of something, things that seemed clear become cloudy.

With the feds breathing down his neck, Jericho has to find his way through Wade’s maze of half truths and manipulations. It would all be so much easier if Jericho could think straight in the other man’s presence. So much easier if their passionate past could be forgotten, and if he could be sure he’s strong enough to resist the temptation of a passionate present.

 Embers is the second book in Kate Sherwood's Common Law series.  It could possibly be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading the first book prior to this one.  It gives you a bit more background on both character and goes over how Jericho came to be living and working in Mosely.

I have to say I enjoyed this book a lot more than the first one.  This series was described as a romance with suspense/mystery when it's really light on the romance.  Don't get me wrong, there is A TON of chemistry between Jericho and Wade but absolutely nothing romantic happens between the two of them in the first one.  At all.  That left me feeling a bit let down and I wasn't sure if I was even going to continue the series, but curiosity got the best of me and I decided to give it a try.  The heat rises a little more in this book but don't expect too much to be solved between them quite yet.

Jericho is starting to wear down a lot more when it come to Wade.  There are still feelings and unfinished business between them, but he struggles to remain professional.  Wade is still the same mysterious guy that you have no idea whether or not to trust anything he says or does.  I'm honestly STILL not sure what his motives are, but I guess I will have to wait and see when the next book comes out.

** I received an ARC of this title via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own. **

  1. I am glad that you liked this one better than the first in the series. It is interesting that the romance in this series is taking a long time to build up. It will be interesting to see how things progress in the next book. Great review!
