Jeremiah is shocked to find his current beau wants him to spy on his rival, by hooking up with him. Since he has wanted a commitment from this man, he agrees to do so. Then he finds out how perfect Chris is for him.
Chris is attracted to Jeremiah, even before he knows who he is. Then he actively pursues him. He goes after what he wants. Chris now wants Jeremiah.
My first reaction to this scenario was, "Who does that?" I have read love triangles before but this was a complicated twist I never saw coming. There is a real sweet spot in this story with the pursuit of this vulnerable man. I just had a hard time stomaching the original boyfriend using the guy like he did. I give this story a 2/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

A fun, light book to spend an afternoon reading. Maddie lets her insecurities get the best of her and gets into a situation that causes her boyfriend, Det. Jack Ramirez to get re-assigned to celebrity bodyguard for an actress receiving creepy fan mail. In order to "help" Ramirez get back into his boss' good graces, Maddie goes "undercover" as a wardrobe assistant for the television show the actress is on and her BFF Dana works as an extra. And we get more help from Felix Dunn, Brit hottie who writes for the tabloid LA Informer and somewhat friend of Maddie who wants to be more than friends. Lots of hijinks ensue.
I figured out the murderer pretty damn quickly - Halliday really doesn't try to hide her killers. What keeps me entertained is Maddie and her antics and hot as hell Ramirez. Seriously, romance needs more Latino heroes. There are some major developments in the romance between Maddie and Ramirez. Maddie also gets a lift in the career development, which was nice.
Just a solid, if predictable, installment in the series.

When a six-year-old girl is abused and left for dead by a pedophile known only as the “Rabbit Man” due to the claw marks left on her body, police follow every lead but reach only dead ends.
Hungry for justice, her grieving father abandons wife and child on a harrowing journey deep undercover into Miami’s sex offender colony under the Julia Tuttle Causeway. His purpose is simple: to find the “Rabbit Man” among them, and put him in the ground.
Months later, with no one to trust and the pedophiles he lives among growing suspicious of his actions, he learns nothing is simple where the monsters live.
WHERE THE MONSTERS LIVE is NOT an extreme horror story, but I still want you to have a little ‘heads up’ before you start reading.
The story is not super graphic in an icky way, but it's emotionally graphic. WTML will sucker punch you right in the feels. It's a disturbing story, and the 'uncomfort' level rises drastically if you have a child of your own.
I didn’t notice just HOW 'emotionally graphic' it was until The Dark Defender woke up to ask me what was wrong, and I had tears streaming down my cheeks.
At one point I thought I knew exactly how this story was going to end (we’ll talk about that once you finish reading). That wouldn’t have made it a suck story – but I am happy that WTML didn’t go for the ‘ironic twist’, and I’m very satisfied with how it’s wrapped up – there could be a little wiggle room JIC case the story isn’t done with us yet.
