Review Source: eARC provided by Author for review
Ryan Trexler has devoted his entire life to his family’s security business. And now that he’s slated to take over the reins for the company, RT knows that his life is only going to get more complicated. Add in the fact that he’s lusting over one of the men who works for him and RT knows that there are some serious tough times ahead. 

Zachariah Tavoularis—nicknamed Z—has been employed by Sniper 1 Security for a decade. Despite being known as the most loyal enforcer outside of family, Z also has a reputation of being quite the playboy, though that was based more on rumor than fact. When an assignment comes up that forces the two of them to work together, Z knows it’s time to show RT he’s not the man he thinks he is. 

Can they complete the mission, despite the fact that it puts them in a tenuous situation, bringing them closer than either of them ever expected? And will Z allow RT to convince him that they can never be together, no matter how much they both want it? 

m/m romance

Come on, what did you expect except another 5 star read?  This is Nicole Edwards.  I say this every time and I don't just give her 5 stars because of who she is ... she's just that good in my book.  Every book is consistent.  It keeps me on my toes, keeps me aching for more and keeps me burning up from all the steamy moments between characters.  Never Say Never was no exception to this formula!

Ryan Trexler "RT" and Zachariah Tavoularis "Z" have been fighting an attraction between them for years  After a failed relationship to an employee at Sniper 1 Security, RT swore he'd never again break the rule of getting involved with someone he worked with or employed.  Z is exactly the type of person RT needs but he won't break his strict rules even for a chance at what he knows would be incendiary.

Z has been biding his time where RT and romance are concerned ever since Kevin (the last douche RT dated) left his life and the company that RT and Z currently work for.  When Bryce and Casper get the big idea to send RT and Z on a little road trip down the coast to Port Aransas, TX for a case involving a very important painting, things get interesting to say the least.  Presented with some much needed alone time together, these two alphas have nowhere to go but toward one another.

I was occasionally very frustrated with these two.  The back and forth chapters where they just keep denying themselves what they need on a carnal level and more importantly, what they both so desperately "want" was killing me.  I just kept wanting to toss my Kindle across the room but when they find their way to one another, I promise all that aggravation was deeply worth it and then some.

Nicole's writing as always is solid.  She's come so far since writing Conviction two years ago.  I wait with baited breath for each novel and I'm never disappointed.  I absolutely adore the characters she's churning out and creating in these two new series and I can't wait for the next on in the Southern Boy Mafia coming out in the very near future!

Highly Recommend!

“How’s the business goin’?” Travis asked as he steered Ryan toward a booth near the front of the bar.
“Busy,” Ryan answered.
“That’s a good thing, right?”
“Of course.” Ryan smiled as they approached Travis’s wife Kylie and their husband Gage. “Good to see y’all again.”
“Same here. Have a seat.” Gage motioned toward the opposite side of the table as he slid his other arm over Kylie’s shoulders and pulled her close while Travis grabbed a chair.
Flipping it around backward, Travis straddled the seat, placing his elbow on the table. Ryan didn’t miss that Travis’s other hand disappeared under the table, likely resting on Kylie’s leg if he had to guess.
“We weren’t sure you’d be able to make it,” Travis said.
Ryan knew he could always be called back to work at any time, depending on the case, but he didn’t need to tell Travis as much. The man ran a multi-million dollar resort, so he understood. “I’m glad I could.”
“How’s Z doin’?” Kylie asked, peering toward the back of the room where Z had been pulled away by his friends a few minutes before.
“You know Z. Nothing gets him down.”
Gage smiled. “Seems he’s quite interested in you.”
Knowing better, Ryan still turned to glance in Z’s direction. He thought for sure he’d be busted stealing a look, but Z was paying him no attention.
“And you’re quite interested in him,” Kylie noted.
Ryan’s head snapped back around to face her. He was about to fire off a rebuttal, but her smile silenced him.
“Leave the poor man alone,” Travis injected. “He’s in denial.”
Ryan snorted.
“I concur,” Gage added.
“Why’s everybody gangin’ up on me?” Ryan questioned, unable to hide the smile.
“Seemed like the thing to do.” Travis took a sip of his beer.
