Jericho and Wade had been so close, once upon a time. First friends, then more than friends—and then, after Jericho’s escape, nothing. Wade’s magnetism hasn’t been lessened by a decade and a half apart; even when Jericho learns that Wade is the prime suspect in the death of Jericho’s father, the old connection still sparks.
When Jericho’s newly discovered half siblings are kidnapped, he needs to trust someone to help him find them. Wade’s a terrible choice, but Jericho’s never been known for his good judgment. Anyway, he’d rather make a bad decision with Wade than a good one with anybody else.
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.
It all seems so simple, but Jericho’s instincts won’t let him rest. As he investigates, he finds troubling suggestions that the murder is a part of something larger and more sinister. But working within the boundaries of the law may keep him from finding the truth. If Jericho doesn’t break the rules, an innocent man may rot in jail while a killer remains free to strike again.
Inevitably, it all comes back to Wade. Because who else knows as much about breaking rules? And who else knows Jericho the way Wade does—not wisely, but far, far too well?
The odds are hopeless, but Jericho swore an oath to serve and protect the citizens of Mosely. He won’t walk away from that, even if Wade Granger’s begging him to run away somewhere and finally be together the way they always should have been.
But this time, it’s Jericho who refuses to leave Mosely, even if staying kills him.

My Common Law Series Review . . .
Long Shadow #1
Jericho comes back to the one place he never thought he would return even though he left his heart there. Now back because he heard his dad was hurt only to find out that all is not what it seems and his dad's not hurt but dead. With this new turn of events, he now has a new step mom and step siblings he knew nothing.
Jericho Crewe and Wade Granger were life time friends and first loves. But Jericho needed to leave
Mosely, Montana. And by doing that he also left his heart. Now Jericho whom is on the right side of crimes comes face to face with his past, whom seems to have chosen the other side of the law.
"By 'business,' I assume you mean 'crime'?"I loved Jericho and Wade's hostile yet potent tension between each other.
"You always did have a tendency toward seeing things in black and white. Not a fan of ambiguity, are you?"
Jericho didn't start on the right of the law. He was once a boy on the wrong side of the law and now he has to find the balance between right and wrong.
Jericho's homecoming is nothing but eventful and now the kids are kidnapped and the only person Jericho can turn to is Wade. But can he trust him?
All the main characters: Nikki, Wade, Kayla, Jericho, Elijah, and Nicolette the feds are great and this series has a great balance of humor and suspense.
"Hi, Nikki. How do you plan to complicate my life today?"
I'm so hooked on this series It was so hard to wait between the releases as I couldn't wait to see if Wade and Jericho could find their balance between right and wrong.
Wade has a knack at showing up at the right times but is it coincidence or is Jericho missing something big?
Poor Jericho is having a hard time with the fine line between right and wrong.
I absolutely love Wade and his shifty ways. And I love all the ways that are Jericho and Wade."We've been working on the bastard for the better part of the year. One man against the DEA and FBI, but the slippery bastard hasn't given us enough for a jaywalking ticket, let alone a federal conviction. There's been nothing easy about it."
Home Fires #4
As Jericho finds himself still back at home. He also continues to try and do the right thing by working for Kay and the sheriff department, but its hard when his heart is with Wade and all that comes with him.
"That'll be Kay's problem. If she wants to fire me, she can. But I've already told her-or at least I started to-if it comes down to choosing between you and my job, I choose you."
"Yeah?" Wade's smile was a little softer this time, a little more real. "Damn, Junior, you can be a real sweet-talker when you try to be."
Jericho is having a hard time with right and wrong but he does know the difference between winning and losing. And for him Wade is a win. Now they just have to survive.
"Is there some part of you being a cop and me being a robber that you don't understand, Jay?"
As the all the illegal activities come to a head now Wade is having a hard time with right and wrong because he knows he wants Jericho and nothing else matters.
"If you're still alive after all this, you are absolutely quitting your fucking job." Then he nudged the gear bag with his foot. "There's some shit in there that might help keep us alive. At least long enough for me to kick your ass."
Not only did I love all that was Jericho and Wade I loved his relationship with the kids as well.
"Jericho can watch the kids so you and me can talk outside."
"Jericho can't handle your kids when he's at full strength."
Loved how Nikki and the kids are Jericho's nemesis but he still tries anyways. Because in the end Jericho is all heart. I absolutely LOVED this series. I didn't rate them as individual books because they're meant as a whole and as a whole I loved them. Sure some were better than others sure but that doesn't matter when you think about the big picture.
4 Wade and Jericho Loving Thumbs up!
