Season of Smoke by A.G. Pasquella

It looks like ex-con Jack Palace’s troubles will never end when he is pressured by the mob to kill one of his best friends. Jack Palace is trying to go legit with his own security company — but his old life keeps trying to pull him back in.

Butterfly by John Delacourt
