Fire and Agate by Andrew Grey


When Chris Anducci is moved off jail duty and into the sheriff’s office, he doesn’t expect his first assignment to be protecting a witness against a human trafficking ring. Knowing the new sheriff doesn’t abide screwups, Chris reluctantly agrees to work the case.

Pavle Kasun has spent the last four years of his life at the mercy of others. When an opportunity presented itself, he took it, resulting in his rescue. Now the safe houses he’s placed in are being threatened and he needs protection if he is to have any sort of chance at a life.

Chris opens his home to Pavle, but he doesn’t expect Pavle and his story to get under his skin… and stay there. Soon they discover they have more in common than either of them thought. Slowly Pavle comes out of his shell and Chris finds someone who touches his heart. But as the men looking for Pavle close in, they will stop at nothing to get him out of the way. But even if Chris can keep him safe, he might not be able to protect his heart if Pavle moves back home.

Pavle is a witness in a trafficking ring. He's alone and scared and has been that way for years. When he's discovered, his social worker and the police want to do all that they can in order to help Pavle heal. Pavle's character is timid and shy, but also has a strength that shows through his actions.

Then you have Chris. He doesn't like his new boss, but when he is chosen to protect a key witness, he wants to do a fantastic job. When he gets to see Pavle and the trauma that he has endured, Chris vows the make sure that Pavle knows he is free.

While this romance is slightly strange, the friendship that develops is amazing. I thought that it was slightly unlikely that someone would be over their trauma as quickly as Pavle was. I also was slightly disappointed in the mystery behind the leak. I thought that it was played up a lot only to be kind of left out in the end.

Overall, this was enjoyable, but I liked book one more. I thought there was more development.



Andrew grew up in western Michigan with a father who loved to tell stories and a mother who loved to read them. Since then he has lived throughout the country and traveled throughout the world. He has a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and now writes full time.
