The Delingpole Mysteries: Book Two

Dominic and Jonathan are on their romantic Spanish honeymoon, and things are perfect… except Dominic has kept a secret from his husband. He’s failed to tell Jonathan that he plans to meet his former lover, Bernhardt, who is speeding on his way from Germany to present Dominic with a mysterious gift.

But Bernhardt is killed in a suspicious car accident. Shortly before he dies, he sends Dominic a bizarre text message that will take the newlyweds on a hair-raising adventure.

Lies upon lies plunge Dominic and Jonathan into an internet crime that could destroy the lives of millions of people. What is the mysterious Charter Ninety-Nine group? And will their planned internet assault force Dominic to choose between the fate of the world and the life of his lover?

This was a sequel to book one. There is mystery, danger, betrayal, and even love. What more can a person ask for.

Jonathan and Dominic are back again and of course the poor souls cannot even enjoy their honeymoon without some kind of trouble coming their way. They are truly a magnet for that sort of thing. Jonathan is still the same person in this book that he is in book one. Though he loves Dominic with all that he is, being with one person will never be enough for him, hence the reason for an open relationship though they are now married.

The big difference in this book is, Jonathan actually shows bouts of jealousy where Dominic is concerned. He feels that with Dominic being the one to not really be the adventurous one when it comes to an open relationship that Dominic betrays him in this read though that may not be the case. Just depends on the point of view of the reader on if you think Dominic is betraying Jonathan or not.

I love how David C Dawson is able to make this book from so many different point of views. That makes his book so much better in my opinion. It gives it a depth that most other books do not have when it comes to reading them because you get so many different views for different situations. That makes this such an incredible read in my opinion.

David C Dawson definitely outdid himself on this book in my opinion. I truly enjoyed every aspect of this book from the love story between Jonathan and Dominic to the mystery behind why Bernhardt was killed in the beginning of the book. This is definitely a recommended read.

Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
