Angel’s Hero by Liz Borino
By Liz Borino
In this first installment of Ms. Borino’s new two part story, Aaron and Jordon meet, fall in love and go through the changes of the times. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell being repealed, repealing DOMA, the start of states allowing same sex marriages… 10 years of history for these two men carefully and artfully woven with Jordon’s most resent mission.
The men must fight their families, the military, the CIA, and a mission gone horribly wrong to achieve their happy ever after; including a jealous superior officer who will go to any lengths to get Aaron to himself.
Jordon knew from the first time he saw Aaron that he would be his Angel to come home to after each mission, Aaron knew Jordon was going to be his Hero. A mission gone very bad puts Aaron on the outs with his family as the government declares Jordon dead, but Aaron refuses to accept the verdict because there is no body and no DNA match. Jordon had always told him not to believe unless he had a body and/or DNA. So, he keeps looking for clues, for something to prove his husband either alive or definitely dead. He quits his job at the CIA and spends his time searching the internet for some type of proof.
Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, Jordon is being held captive, denied his basic Geneva rights. He is being given the basic medical treatment from the commander’s wife, a nurse, who he saved on his last mission by refusing to go to a certain area to give aide; she had been picked as a suicide bomber if the mission went on. He held to the belief that he would get back to his Angel. Then he found out that his being held was at the arrangement a high military official attached to the CIA and he knew he wouldn’t be getting out of the prison alive, especially with the questions they were asking about a religious leader he had no idea who he was, where he was, or why the government would be holding him.
I rate this read five stars, with emotional pulls that will keep you on the edge of your seat for the whole book. Be ready for the cliff hanger that is a true Liz Borino ending. Well done, and very well written. A must have if you like m/m erotica with a military hero.
