Fisher and Zach are CIA agents in a secret relationship. But that’s not all they’re hiding.Β Neither of them disclosed their true occupations to each other. So when Zach got kidnapped by an organization supplying arms to terror cells, Fisher had no choice but to give in to their demands and surrender himself to rescue Zach. What Fisher doesn’t know, however, is that Zach was neck-deep in a case that he himself has been working on for months.

I feel like I should insert an ominous soundtrack right here. Actually, I would have to insert them in random spots throughout the story because it was certainly that suspenseful. This book was so much fun. It had enough humor to cut through the tension. And the relationship drama between Fisher and Zach was oh, so addictive. At times, I wanted to slap Fisher because he refused to see what was in front of him. All he kept focusing on was that Zach lied (as much as he did, mind you!). He was so stubborn.

There was no doubt how much Zach loves Fisher, though. He was ready to sacrifice himself just to save Fisher. These two has chemistry in spades, and even though they frustrated me on many occasions, I rooted for them. Oh, man. The sex scenes were hot. Lol. Nothing like the threat of death to amp up the intensity in the bedroom.

But this book is not only all about sex and romance. After all, they are CIA agents who were up against some very dangerous criminals. The torture sessions were a bit hard to take. It was suspense all the time, so it left very little room for boredom. Ms. Dimon melded romance and suspense well. A one-sitting type of read, honest.


  • I’m glad there was more to it than just romance. Sounds like a good read.

  • Sounds like a good blend of plot and romances

  • This sounds like lots of fun! It goes to the top of my TBR stack! πŸ˜€

    Strangely enough, this one slipped right by me on Netgalley. I usually notice these things. I know I’m going to love all of it, the plot, the suspense, and especially the romance. Straight on my list it goes.

  • OH wow, the sex and the intensity in here actually sounds really good, especially with the CIA angle! Glad you enjoyed it Joy.

  • Ooh, this sounds like quite the intense read Joy, thankfully it had a dose of humour to keep it on the lighter side. Might have to skip over the torture scenes though, those would be a bit too confronting for my tastes. Wonderful review Joy <3

  • Sex, romance, the CIA, intense and written well for it to be a one sitter.
    Happy weekend, lady!

  • I’m glad you enjoyed this one, Joy! I can’t think of the name Mr. Smith without thinking of the movie πŸ™‚

  • It’s the first time I hear about
    this book, Joy. Sounds so good, thanks for putting it on my radar. I added it
    to my tbr-list. I really like the idea of them both working undercover and
    keeping secrets.

  • Melliane

    well for the torture part… otherwise it sounds well done

  • shootingstarsmag

    I have this one to review – I can’t wait to get to it! I’m glad the suspense was done really well.


  • Oooh secret relationship, M/M and suspense (and sexy times!!)? I’m in!

  • kindlemom1

    Yay! Glad this was such a good read for you Joy!

  • Jenny @ Supernatural Snark

    Is this a series Joy? It sounds like they’re already in an established relationship, so I wasn’t sure if there was a book before this one detailing how they met:)

    This sounds so good though! I’m always on board for a solid M/M romantic suspense story. *runs off to Amazon to pre-order*

  • I’ve seen this title around. It looks great. Wonderful review. I’ll have to see about grabbing it.

  • OHMYGOD. This sounds soooo good! I need this! Awesome review as always!

  • I have had my eye on this one since I noticed it on NetGalley. I am trying to control myself so I haven’t clicked…yet. I read one of HelenKay Dimon’s books a while ago and enjoyed it. I don’t read a lot of M/M books but this one sounds really good. Great review!

  • I’m actually adding this one to my TBR. I like the sound of there being heated romance scenes but there also being suspense and humor as well. It’s not often you get such a brilliant blend in one book! And seeing as I love movies like This Means War, it’s pretty clear that I like agents and secretive kind of books/movies. So this sounds great for me.

  • They were both agents and had not told each other, hA
