Cole Jacobs is getting a fresh start on life by doing a job he enjoys. Cole has a new career as an auto mechanic. Unfortunately, Cole realizes he also has a stalker who knows all the nasty details of his past. As a favor to his boss, private detective Marcus Lowry agrees to investigate Cole’s possible stalker case. Marcus has his doubts the case is real until they both receive undeniable proof that their lives are in imminent danger.

No Boundaries is the first book in the Phoenix, Inc. series. Phoenix, Inc. is the name of a Private Investigations business owned by Styx, Law and Paolo, three former armed forces, CIA and cops. The plot is a nail biting suspense with military tactics employed. The characters have emotional baggage from their past that continues surface from time to time. Trust is a major issue for Cole as well as for Marcus; both men have secrets too painful to share.

Cole was forced to live on the streets at a young age. He did whatever he had to do to survive. Cole suffers from anger issues but he is not a violent man. Cole relieves his stress by doing fighter training. Cole’s past as a rent boy subdued his sexual desires until he met Marcus.

Marcus has the guiltiness of failure from his days as a CIA operative, though the mission was accomplished according to plan, he did not accomplish the goal to his own satisfaction. Marcus is also suspicious of his attraction to Cole because of a prior cheating boyfriend. 

SE Jakes has created a fascinating thriller that I enjoyed immensely. The mentally twisted stalker is terrifying. No Boundaries also features ménage intimacy scenes between Styx, Law and Paolo, as well as intimacy scenes between Cole and Marcus.
