Even if Ross and Kyle make it out of this alive, will the secrets in Kyle’s heart stay safe?
Kyle gets caught up in a case that is entirely unrelated to Bodyguards Inc. Not only does he abruptly need time off, but he has to have absolute trust and complete support from Ross without being able to tell Ross a thing.
CIA Agent Stefan Mortimer needs Kyle’s help with a case of a geneticist and a missing formula. Trouble is being led right to Kyle’s door, endangering the life of the team he has built and the man that he loves.
Going undercover, with Ross as his fiance, is the worst kind of torture in so many ways, but it is the only answer. Kyle and Ross may well live through this but Kyle is convinced his heart won’t survive.
I wish I had better news about this one. It didn’t work for me. These men spent too much time mooning over each other internally (book is from from 2 POVs) and the sexual tension wasn’t there. It eventually got too corny and I lost interest before the inevitable gun-toting climax. The “L” word was anti-climatic and the epilogue wasn’t satisfying. It seemed too much like setting up the plot for the next book in the series.
I really enjoyed the beginning of this series but it has petered out for me. I’m just not buying it anymore.
