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.

The Talented Mr.Rivers is a riveting, action packed, suspense filled scorching hot love story of an undercover agent and his mark. This is the story of two men who are not supposed to fall in love but are helpless against it. This book gave me an amazing and unforgettable reading experience.

I loved this book. I loved everything about it. It has action, suspense, passion and two hot men. I loved Hunter and Will and the way their relationship progressed in the story. Right from the start what is evident is their intense sexual chemistry and it is scorching hot. I loved that the author has mixed elements of suspense and action along with their love story. Hunter and Will falls in love in the midst of danger and how they navigate their relationship in their race to survive is spectacular. What I loved the most is that Hunter and Will is having a lot of layers and it is unraveled as the slowly progresses and it is wonderful to read about two characters who are a little unpredictable and who is having a lot of unknown facets. What I also loved is that they both trusted each other even though they are enemies. Will knows that Hunter is not who he pretends to be and still decides to take a chance. They both had their priorities straight and the book did not have much angst. Hunter and Will made me fall in love with them by the time I finished reading the book.

This book took me on a ride which was fast, action packed, scorching hot and beautiful. I will be looking forward to what is coming next.
