Anti-Hero (Wild Heart Ranch Book 4) by Kelly Fox

Anti-Hero is the long awaited story for Ant and Erik to get their HEA. Revenge is the name of the game, and when Ant won't back down from his plan there is nothing for Erik to do but guard Ant's back. Allowing themselves to be together takes some honest communication, but they find time to connect during their journey killing the bad guys, visiting family and friends and steaming up the sheets.

From the blurb:

Spoiler alert: This isn't some sad exploration of my tragic past. I have a list of the people who bought and sold me. And they aren't getting a redemption arc.

I was luckier than most. I was rescued by a team of guys who search out people like me, and now I get to work with them. But I'm not the hero of this story. I don't forgive. I don't forget. And I'm about to cut a bloody swath across this part of the globe in retaliation for what they did to me.

My only problem? I'm in love with one of my rescuers, and he still thinks I'm a helpless kid, even though I've been killing evil men for months. When he offers to help with my little revenge spree, I know it's only because he worries about my safety.

If he's going to keep looking at me like that, though, he might be the one in danger.

Anti-Hero is for the wild hearts out there who, despite being all love and light, still need their revenge.

SNik's Review:

Fourth in series (Wild Heart Ranch), best if read in order. POC representation. Friends to lovers. Found family. Dual POV. Heed content warnings. 

Ant is ready for revenge, he has a list and the skills to make the people that hurt him in the past pay, but his self appointed Nordic protector is not happy about Ant’s plans. Erik is struggling with his fear of Ant being hurt again and his respect for the man that Ant has become, as well as what Erik feels might be his inappropriate attraction to the man he rescued. 

Ant and Erik have had a complicated relationship from the start, and once they realize their feelings are mutual they have to communicate honestly and forge a new relationship that works for them. Both Ant and Erik are strong-willed with terrible backgrounds, and Ant heals and grows while Erik learns to respect and care for Ant. 

Quite a bit of action, with tons of cameos from some of the author’s previous series, as well as family bonding and two men that fit each other in all aspects not denying they have fallen into a forever love.
