James Trevalyan came from a long line of men who served the British Crown with their gift of a voice with compelling power, and kept that tradition going while he loved and lived with Jeremy Waters. When Jeremy died in his arms, James resolved to live without love. His family keeps him connected to life — Jamie, his son from his brief marriage to an American, and Pamela, his beloved little sister, caught in a loveless marriage to a cold, cruel man.
Then Tanner comes into his life, a clever and handsome agent who joins him in an ongoing undercover mission. How long will it take James to realize he and Tanner are meant for each other? And can Tanner survive the assignment that’s thrown him in with mobsters who want him dead simply because he knows too much?
Hmmm, I was surely confused be the end of the book. I like Tinnean writing style. This is my first book outside her Spook Vs. Spy series. It started really well, and then I felt like I was reading an entire different book. I enjoyed the beginning 40% percent, and then after a tragic end to one of the characters it seemed to go into an entire different direction. I thought this was a general CR book, and then I felt like after the halfway mark I ended up with a spy thriller book. I’m not disparaging that because I like it, but it took away the goodness from which I started reading it as.
I liked James & Jeremy alot. I thought they were amazing together. I did not like how she wrote the time period. I was confused on if it’s a historical romance, or contemporary that’s in the 1900’s. What confused me was the wording she used, products, and such. I don’t if it’s a specific item that was out, but sometimes reading the story I felt like we were in modern times, and then others we were in the past.
Sigh, I don’t know. I did not do well with reading this. I think the pacing was another downfall. Again the first half was brilliant and then the tone of the book changed. I wish I could get over it, and since I can’t I don’t plan to rate this. I would still read this author’s work, but this book was not for me.Buy Link Author Link GoodReads
