EE Ltd. Universe - SE Jakes

EE Ltd. (Extreme Escapes Ltd.) is a private contracting firm. The company basically pay agents that are ex military / government (FBI/CIA) for special operations that couldn't be done by the government. Sometimes they are even contracted BY the government. 
This is were the MC in the series work. 

Hell or High Water is a 4 book MM Romance series by SE JAKES telling us the romance between Prophet Drews (a former navy SEAL) and Tom Boudreaux (former FBI). As a new member of EE, Tom is partnered with Prophet who isn't into having a partner. From there you can guess what happens :) 

Each book has it's own story line / mission but there is a wider arc of story for all books. In the first book we learn more about Prophet (the case involve someone from his past) and the second gives us the background on Tom (taking place in where Tom grew up). The third build to the last novel and final confrontation of the wider story line. I"m not sure what would happen in the "in between" novella. 

During the third book there is also a plot line that is parallel to the first novella in the "Dirty Deed" telling us of Mal (former navy SEAL mate of Prophet) and Cillian (prophet's neighbor, also a spook). 

I like the series but don't LOVE it. I have a few issues with it. Firstly, you better remember all the small details and who's who and what's their agenda when you go through the series because there is hardly any explanation to things that happened in the previous books or in the past and were re-visited. Second issue is I feel this series has too many similarities in MC to the Cut & Run series by Abigail Roux. Prophet is too much of a Ty and Tom is too much of a Zane. I do feel like these two series ARE independent and there is a "place" for both of them and yet I have my misgivings sometimes.

Dirty Deeds is a spin-off series to Hell or High Water, telling us of Mal, former teammate of Prophet in charge of shadowing Cillian, who Prophet suspects knows more than he's telling about John Morse. John used to be their teammate but something happened and now he is somehow in league with the bad guys and the teammates is looking for him. The first novella takes place in the same time line as the third book of Hell of High Water - Daylight Again. I'm not sure in what time and place will be the next two but they are planned to be published after the Hell or High Water series is finished.

Free Falling is a standalone short novella telling us of Mitch and Blue, two EE Ltd. operatives. Their story line takes place before Hell or High Water. The both of them have their appearances in some of the next books in the EE Ltd. World but they bare no significant to the main story lines.

I recently discovered that SE JAKES is a pan name of Stephanie Tyler who write M/F Romance (both Realistic and Paranormal Romance) also with a militaristic vibe. I also found out that she uses the name Sydney Croft when co-writes with Larissa Ione.
