Syren Rua is at war. He battles painful childhood demons and his intense need for the first person who makes him feel. As Faro, Syren makes deals with the worst while taking the steps necessary to bring his family’s killer to justice. He isn’t one to indulge in selfish needs, but he’ll make the time in this instance. Syren has been watching Kane Ashby, craving the grieving man for his own. He’s always stayed away from temptation, but that’s about to change.
Kane isn’t over the death of his long-time partner. He’s certainly not ready for a relationship, sexual or otherwise, but Syren isn’t a man who takes no for an answer. The unpredictable Syren offers nothing but secrets and brings with him memories so dark, they could wipe out any chance the two might ever have. Syren brings Kane’s heart back to life. But it is also Syren who could inflict the most damage.
Review: Syren has lots of secrets and more than one identity. Can he keep track of who he really is and what the real him needs?
Kane is barely living. He can’t let go of his past lover, yet Faro intrigues him, and Vince is finally ready to come out for Kane. What will Kane do? Can he let Bailey’s memory go? Could he and Vince have a future together as more than friends? Who is Faro and why does this man seem so intent on Kane?
OH WOW! This book has so much going on. There is mystery, Intrigue, drama, angst, hot sex. SO many different romances and feelings that tie together and fit like puzzle pieces. I cried. I swooned. I got mad. Yep this is one heck of a good story.
There are so many good characters and all have so many complicated feelings and roles, it’s hard to not like even the bad guys and at times I wanted to hurt both of the prominent main characters Kane and Syren.
It is the third book in this series, but I never got lost, so it stands alone well; but I have to say I wanted to read the others, to see who they were about and how they fit into this one. I cannot wait for the next story to see how things move forward and what becomes of Syren and Cane now or who the main characters in the next book will be.
Recommendation: If you like, complicated characters and intriguing plots, drug runners, mobs, cartels, secret agents, police officers, FBI agents, romance with angst, little BDSM (bondage) secrets, super- hot sex, and this one is for you!
