Nick Fallon, private investigator, living the good life in Laguna Beach, gets a rude awakening when his past life unexpectedly catches up with him. Four years earlier, Nick, then a member of the Pittsburgh Police Department, was instrumental in arresting Fransisco Garcia, a drug dealer and cold-blooded murderer. Now, Garcia has escaped from prison and is intent on making good his threat of reprisal for the death of his son in the shoot out that brought down his notorious empire - a confrontation that also claimed the lives of two of Nick's associates. Nick, well aware of Garcia's ruthless and cunning tactics, fears for the safety of his lover, Eric Jamieson. Despite Nick's best efforts to protect Eric, Garcia succeeds in taking him hostage and holds him as bait in the trap he has prepared for Nick. Only their combined strength and resilience save them from the messy deaths Garcia had planned for them. Even then, they are not safe and soon discover that they cannot, for one moment afford to let down their guards, until Garcia is either apprehended—or dead. A Deadly Game is an erotic thrill ride, filled with danger, excitement and suspense.

Lots of backstory revealed and more than once, I doubted this was the first book in the series. There were references to events that weren't in the huge flashback and, now I see this is the first in the series, I'm a little annoyed by its inclusion, particularly as it served no purpose other than to...
This one seemed phoned-in to me. Granted, I am picky about my romance-thrillers and want them to work as thrillers and not just as romances. This one didn't for me. The perilous situations were repetitive and required the hero to be both very dumb and amazingly lucky. The subplot with the psychiatri...
First (due to the title), I put this on my mm-mystery shelf. BUT, after I'm finished, I must put it on my mm-romance instead. Why? Because I don't think there is a mystery here. The readers will know from upfront, who the bad guy is, what he is planning to do, and actually, I think almost half of th...
