Premed student Tobias Benton is making amends for his past. He keeps his head down, mouth shut and colors within the lines. But when his close friend Ghost goes missing, Tobias will do whatever it takes to get answers—including using blackmail to enlist some help. The last thing he’s looking for is romance.

Private investigator Sullivan Tate isn’t above a little breaking and entering to solve a case, but when Tobias catches him in the act, it’s almost game over. Their uneasy alliance only gets more complicated when Sullivan learns that Tobias shares his interest in kink. Mixing sex and work could kill Sullivan’s career, but Tobias’s acceptance of Sullivan’s darkest urges is nearly impossible to resist.

Side by side, Tobias and Sullivan spend their days searching for the truth and their nights fulfilling their respective fantasies. But the answers they seek are far more dangerous than they realize, and soon they find themselves fighting for more than just each other.

Hard Line is another amazing book by the author which grabbed my interest right from the first page and I couldn’t put the book down till I was finished.

Tobias and Sullivan are two characters who will capture your heart and never let go. I loved absolutely everything about this book. I loved the way the author has developed their relationship. Another aspect that really blew my mind off was the way the author has explored their chemistry. It was absolutely and off the charts hot..!!! I don’t want to go into it more and spoil it for anyone. But it was explored in a way that was interwoven with the story well. I loved how different Tobias and Sullivan are from each other and how they compliment each other. They both had their own share of issues and the way they were there for each other was amazing. I loved them both and the way they got their forever.

The suspense element or the mystery element was etched out well too. The author kept the suspense going with every page and it grabbed onto my curiosity to know more. The supporting characters were also wonderful and they contributed to the story really well.

Hard Line is a very well crafted romantic suspense story which will give you an entertaining ride. Highly Recommended.
