Three years ago investigative reporter Parker Davidson barely survived a brutal attack by his psychopathic ex-boyfriend. It’s given him a dim view of romance.
When Parker’s ex escapes from a maximum security prison, LAPD Lieutenant Henry Stagge is tasked with making sure that Parker doesn’t end up a victim a second—and final—time.
Most cops believe Parker got what he deserved, but over the course of a few very tense hours, Henry begins to wonder if there’s more to Parker than he thought.
Second chances happen in the strangest places—and at the strangest times.
We're not always given a second chance so when it shows up on your doorstep, never take it for granted. Night Watch is a short story/novella centering on just that very theme. Parker may have been duped, nearly died because of it, and vilified afterwords but he was still the victim and now it's Henry's job to keep him safe. It's no wonder that Parker has a dim view on the idea of romance but as it often is with Cupid's Arrow, it happens when you aren't looking for it or even wanting it. The story might be shorter than my usual read but a Josh Lanyon is still a Josh Lanyon, no matter the length. This was a great surprise to find.
