“A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents that are assigned to the case are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case.” (From Amazon.com)
Enter Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett. The FBI partners them together and sends them to the city to solve the mystery and bring the murderer to justice. The only problem is that Ty and Zane can’t stand each other. They bicker and fight with each other while trying to understand and discover the killer. But soon they both realize that while they still can’t seem to stand each other there is an intense attraction neither can deny. Sparks fly until they get taken off the case and four months later the killer is back and now he’s after Ty and Zane.
What I Thought:
I don’t think I’ll be able to form enough incredible adjectives to describe this book. Hands down this is the best M/M romance I’ve ever read and certainly up there in the top best books in general. I was immediately sucked into the story and the characters. Ty is fly by the seat of his pants, cocky and an ex-marine, making him the best man for the job. Zane Garrett is a recovering alcoholic, serious, and focused on the job at hand. They clash right from the beginning but also have a strong attraction to each other. The sex in this book is some of the steamiest and sexiest that I’ve ever read (and I’ve read a LOT) but it doesn’t detract from the story which was equally as exciting.
The murderer they’re after is offing people in New York City and it’s seemingly random. But Ty and Zane know there has to be a pattern. He’s leaving trinkets and tokens behind after every murder but even they don’t seem to have a connection with one another. The case is almost impossible to crack as it is but then it seems like the killer turns his attention to Zane and Ty. I loved the fact that the mystery wasn’t entirely obvious and it did take me about 3/4 of the way through before I had a good idea who the killer was. I liked that the authors kept me on my feet throughout the entirety of the book with both the plot and the developing relationship between Ty and Zane.
Fabulous is not a strong enough word to describe this book. The story-telling was excellent and Ty and Zane sizzled right off the pages. There’s something intensely erotic about two many alpha men loving each other.
Final Review: 5/5!
