In this steamy novel of seduction and international intrigue, two brave men are stripped of their defenses—and exposed to dangers and desires that simmer below the surface.
As an agent with the CIA’s special activities division, Seth Lang lives for risk—and yet he’s stuck playing bodyguard to the U.S. consul general in Munich. Although Seth’s last assignment nearly killed him, babysitting some desk jockey in a suit sounds way too easy. But when he lays eyes on the new top man, tactical expert Rick Fine, Seth’s thrilled to see just how hard this job is going to get. Mr. Tall, Dark, and Quiet has a body worth guarding—and he requires hands-on attention day and night.
Dispatched to a German consulate to expose the murder of his predecessor, Rick finds himself in an extremely vulnerable position. He needs a man like Seth—in so many ways. This mission will inevitably plunge them both into jeopardy, but each new threat only brings them closer. Rick just hopes that he can keep his deepest, darkest secret hidden—or else risk imperiling a relationship they’re both fighting for their lives to protect.
Danger, Alpha men, and murder!
When I started this book I thought it would be another book that was all sex and little story. What I found is a great read, that starts to build from page one. When a danger junky gets paired with a desk jockey you can imagine a volatile relationship.
Seth is all about following the rules he thinks are important, like he’s the boss and don’t forget it! Yet the entire dynamic of this story is how no one else is listening to his advice. A man who needs to be in control, no emotions ever allowed. Yet he is falling for this desk jock who is more than he seems.
Rick is used to working behind the scenes, yet now he is right in the spotlight. He is trying to come off as incapable, so he can move around unnoticed. His bodyguard is very good and impatient. As the murder attempts stack up, it’s clear that Rick is on the right track.
There is a chemical attraction between these two, that leaps off the page! It is very sexual and believable. Rick is trying hard to be upfront and honest with Seth yet somethings are unavoidable. When do you talk about past situations, Not when hit men are dropping body’s. Seth is used to being in danger but not seeing the man he cares for in that danger with him. One thing to take from this is that there are emotions and bad guys, it heats up and stress hot for the entire book!
