REVIEW: The Talented Mr. Rivers (Tough Love, Book 2) by HelenKay Dimon

Amazon || Kobo || B&N || iBooks


HelenKay Dimon’s suspenseful, provocative series of double agents and dark desire continues with a novel featuring two men bound by a dangerous job—and by the cravings they feel for each other.
As the son of an international crime lord, Will Rivers only inherited one thing after his father died: trouble. The Pentasus organization deals in kidnapping and murder, and Will wants no part of the power grab that’s tearing leadership apart. But the only way he’ll be able to escape is with some help from his former bodyguard, Hunter Cain, whose sculpted body and brooding looks keep Will awake at night. Somehow, Hunter has resisted the tension between them . . . until, suddenly, he gives in.

As a German intelligence officer working deep undercover, Hunter has a very good reason to keep Will in the dark about his identity and his intentions. Although the sex is hot, Hunter’s true feelings are a growing liability. Now the only way to save Will from his old life is to push him deeper into danger. But when two strong men are each determined to protect the other, the heat isn’t just combustible—it’s a firestorm.



So, I picked this up right after I finished the first book in the series. No worries, it can stand alone, I think. Personally, I just enjoy reading in sequence as it adds to the overall experience of the series. And hmmm, this did pick up right where the first book ended, so maybe not...

Hunter was Will's bodyguard until that thing with his family all went amok. Now Will's in hiding. There was a pull between them right from the start but given Hunter's job, he did his best to not act on it until he couldn't anymore. Meanwhile, sh!t's about to go down and Hunter's not sure if he can protect Will his way. Will felt he can hold up on his own so what then?

I enjoyed the simmering tension between these 2; that push-pull, especially coming from Hunter, with Will unsettling his thoughts and Hunter losing the will to fight off his feelings. There was no doubt that Hunter can kick a$$, but it was exciting to see Will display his fighting skills in an understated manner. Given Will's history, people tend to underestimate him. So it was fun to read the surprise he elicits from the people he worked with. What's even more fun to read are the thoughts behind it, to see the kick-a$$ Will come out to protect Hunter.

If you've read the first one like I did, you'll be pleased to see familiar names. Again, gotta give a shout out to Seth. That dude just seem to steal the scene for me whenever he's around. He gets his turn in the 3rd book. Can't wait!

Overall, really enjoyed this! It's got action, suspense, honest emotions, and of course, can't forget the heat:D
