Everything Changes, Two tribes #2, by Kristian Parker

Dragged into a gang war Shaun is happy to be reunited with his brother but wants nothing to do with the upcoming conflict. He doesn't expect to fall for Enzo, a man that comes from a family deeply entrenched in crime, as they try to hide from the men trying to kill them. Shaun can't stay but he can't leave Enzo behind. Everything Changes is part of the Two Tribes series.

From the blurb:

Fear can open doors we never dreamt possible.

Shaun Moseley is in a trap and it’s all his brother Liam’s fault.

Living a normal life running a B&B in Blackpool, he finds himself right in the middle of a gang turf war in Manchester. Shaun is an alien in this horrifying new world of drugs, guns and violence.

Shaun rebels against everyone, isolating himself in the process. But a terrifying experience opens his eyes to gang member Enzo Ponti. Shaun may be trapped for the time being, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have a little fun along the way, right? After initially dismissing Enzo as just another hired killer, he scratches below the surface…and finds much more there.

But evil gangster Jonny Wellingham wants revenge on the gang and has set his sights on Shaun. Can Shaun live long enough to find just how deep Enzo’s waters are?

Reader advisory: This book contains scenes of violence, murder, organized crime, and homophobia.

SNik's Review:

Second in series (Two Tribes), must be read in order. Instalove. Single POV.  

Shaun gets swept up into a gangster rivalry due to his brother’s criminal ties and he is not handling hiding out from the local gangster well. Sharing a house with enforcer Enzo is not helping, with danger always at the door Shaun doesn’t want to let his attraction take hold as he only wants to get away from the criminal dealings surrounding his brother. 

There is a lot of back and forth about Shaun not wanting to be involved with the illegal side of his brother’s and Enzo’s lives, but he can’t really escape although he wants to. 

I do wish there was more background to both Enzo and Shaun as they fall for each other, and there are some steamy times along with action as the men are hiding and on the run. 

A lot of tension within the group of characters while Shaun and Enzo find comfort with each other. HFN for this couple with a soft cliffhanger as the series continues with a new couple being the focus of the final installment of the series.
