When a tornado meets a volcano, nothing is safe.

Soldier of fortune Prophet Drews always worked alone—until Tom Boudreaux became his partner. But when Tom walked away three months ago, ostensibly to keep Prophet safe, Prophet learned the true meaning of being alone. Everyone knows that Prophet, a Navy SEAL turned CIA spook turned mercenary, can look after himself. Which means he must’ve driven his lover away.

Even with half a world between them, Prophet can’t get the man out of his head. Maybe that’s why he’s in New Orleans in the middle of a hurricane, protecting Tom’s aunt. But the only looter around is Tom, bursting back into Prophet’s life. It turns out that Prophet’s been stuck in Tom’s head—and heart—too.

Their explosive reunion gets even hotter when Tom is arrested for murder. As they fight to clear his name, they delve deep into his past, finding enemies among everyone they meet. Staying alive in such a dangerous world is hard enough, but they soon discover that fighting to stay together is the most difficult thing they’ve ever done.

Long Time Gone is the second book in the Hell or High Water series by author SE Jakes. I have not read the first and wished I did. This is very much the second book.  You can get the idea of the story and the storyline with this one, but you would get more out of it if you read the first book first.
Prophet has always worked alone.  He is an ex-mercenary and he is not used to letting people in.  That why he is taking Tom’s departure so hard. Tom was the one person he did let in.
Tom walked away not because he didn’t love Prophet but to protect him. But now Prophet is back, and Tom is not strong enough to walk away twice.
These two are singe worthy. Both in and out of bed wow. But I loved the mystery in this story too. This is a great love story with a twist. I would love to read more from this series and go back and see what I missed too.  Well worth reading this one is.
