Story Overview:HelenKay Dimon’s suspenseful, provocative series of double agents and dark desire continues with a novel featuring two men bound by a dangerous job—and by the cravings they feel for each other.
As the son of an international crime lord, Will Rivers only inherited one thing after his father died: trouble. The Pentasus organization deals in kidnapping and murder, and Will wants no part of the power grab that’s tearing leadership apart. But the only way he’ll be able to escape is with some help from his former bodyguard, Hunter Cain, whose sculpted body and brooding looks keep Will awake at night. Somehow, Hunter has resisted the tension between them . . . until, suddenly, he gives in.
As a German intelligence officer working deep undercover, Hunter has a very good reason to keep Will in the dark about his identity and his intentions. Although the sex is hot, Hunter’s true feelings are a growing liability. Now the only way to save Will from his old life is to push him deeper into danger. But when two strong men are each determined to protect the other, the heat isn’t just combustible—it’s a firestorm.My Review:
Hunter and Will...hmm, yes, I did love them. Seriously, how can you not love a star crossed lovers when one is an undercover government agent and the other is part of the organization he's trying to take down. There's a ton of angst and no one knows who they can trust which makes for some great suspenseful reading.
I love Hunter and Will. From the first moment they are on the page, it's so obvious how much emotion and unquenched sexual lust there is between them. Will's entire life is in upheaval though and everyone is trying to kill him...so he's hard pressed to trust anyone, which is a smart way to be. Even though they both know this is the worst timing in the world, neither can resist the pull to the other. Chemistry...this book has it on almost every page....and that makes it such a great read.
While I loved the sparks between Hunter and Will, I also loved the three other guys who played into this story. Of course, Fisher and Zach from the first book were amazing, but hands-down my favorite was Seth. I'm really, really hoping he'll get his own book, too.
This is a romantic suspense and it's hard to predict how it's all going to turn out despite knowing exactly who all the players are and who to watch out for.
Overall, I just really enjoyed reading this book and am definitely looking forward to more.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
