Length: 100,000 words approx.

The Power Of Zero Series

Book #1 - Job Hunt
Book #2 - Ghosts
Book #3 - House Hunt


Jack Horwood. Vigilante, hacker, security specialist. Partner to Gareth Flynn. Adoptive father to their two teenage boys. Happily juggling long days and short nights.

Gareth Flynn. Ex-army officer. Ace negotiator. Righter of wrongs. Family man. Away from home more often than he likes.

Can love, teamwork, and trust survive the troubles that follow them around? Can Jack save what’s become so important to him?

Expect action, drama, and hot romance in book 4 of the Power of Zero series.

5 Stars!

Swings & Roundabouts is book 4 in the Power of Zero series and it needs to be read in order. Trust me, you don't want to miss any of it.

Jake is sort of juggling his job with his new responsibilities as an adoptive father for Nico and Daniel and taking care of everything at home, while his partner Gareth, has been away for work more often than not.

It's working for them until it isn't, and Jake surprises Gareth with a romantic getaway in Sweden so they can reconnect, but trouble seems to follow Jake everywhere he goes.

This is my favorite of the 4 books, and that's saying a lot since the previous installments have been 4.5-5 Star reads for me. I just loved seeing that while things aren't perfect between Jake and Gareth, they were willing to work through their issues and emerged even stronger in the end. And of course, I adored seeing them with Nico and Daniel and the lengths they were willing to go to make things better for them after what they lived through before coming to live with Gareth and Jake. 

The chemistry between Gareth and Jake was out of this world, especially once they were in Sweden and got some time for themselves. 

The cases the guys were working on were interesting and fast-paced, both with satisfying results. And the teamwork was outstanding, as always. I love Aiden and Raf and the Swedish police members that helped Jake and Gareth clear their friend Oskar's name.

Overall, this was another fantastic addition to the series, with a strong HFN and a great ending that will tide me over while I (im)patiently wait for the next installment in the series. Highly recommendable!

Author Bio

Jackie Keswick was born behind the Iron Curtain with itchy feet, a bent for rocks and a recurring dream of stepping off a bus in the middle of nowhere to go home. She's worked in a hospital and as the only girl with 52 men on an oil rig, spent a winter in Moscow and a summer in Iceland and finally settled in the country of her dreams with her dream team: a husband, a cat, a tandem, a hammer and a laptop.

Jackie loves unexpected reunions and second chances, and men who don't follow the rules when those rules are stupid. She blogs about English history and food, has a thing for green eyes, and is a great believer in making up soundtracks for everything, including her characters and the cat.

And she still hasn't found the place where the bus stops.

For questions and comments, not restricted to green eyes, bus stops, or recipes for traditional English food, you can find Jackie Keswick in all the usual places:
