When private investigator, Shane Stephens, is hired by the mayor of Cincinnati to track down the hacker who has been threatening him, Shane is sure this is the opportunity to launch the Merleau Detection Agency into the big time. He even convinces Rowe Ward of Ward Security to loan him one of his best IT specialists, Quinn Lake.

Shane, a man who prefers casual intimacy, is surprised by his attraction to the moody computer geek, but when Quinn suggests they have fun for the month he’s on loan, Shane happily agrees. Both men are expecting nothing more than a good time.

But the investigation takes an unexpected turn and they quickly discover they are facing more than a hacker out to ruin the mayor’s re-election chances. And as they spend more time together, they realize their relationship may be a lot more than just a good time.

With only weeks until the election, Shane and Quinn race to gather the proof they need while dodging bullets and possibly…falling in love.

Dantès Unglued is the second book in the Ward Security Series and is about Shane and Quinn. This is the action packed fast-paced thriller of how they go from just having fun to falling in love.

The book, like the first book in the series, is a mystery/suspense story combined with a beautiful love story. I liked both Shane and Quinn. They both are really different people and I really liked the way the authors have developed their relationship. Their relationship started off real slow and I did feel that it was a little rushed, like some of it happened off the pages. But it was really enjoyable. Like all their previous stories the sexual chemistry is off the charts and they the authors have made the characters explore them was phenomenal. The mystery/suspense element of the story has been etched out very well and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the part. They were able to keep the suspense going on till the right moment and the reveal was truly surprising. Familiar faces from the previous books makes an appearance and it was really nice to read about them.

Dantès Unglued is a truly entertaining and wonderfully etched out story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and I cannot wait to read the next one. Recommended.
