    "I never really enjoyed action books but I was recommended this by this list, so I tried it out. It was really good, especially the thrilling suspense, though the romance could have used a little more flare. "

    "As a queer reader who also writes queer fiction, as a big fan of mysteries like JD Robb's In Death and Kay Hooper's Bishop series, I can't tell you how wonderful it is to finally see gay men on the crime beat. I've never seen gay cops, detectives, federal agents, nothing, except on the show Brooklyn 99. Can't even tell you what this kind of queer rep and romance means to me. 5/5 stars, definitely would recommend!"

    "It is not really good as a crime book, but the romance and sensual scenes are very nicely written. Laura has a good command of the language, especially in the romantic parts."

    "This is just tripe. Nothing but cheap drivel for the Soap opera crowd. And not the good soaps, i'm taking C rated Columbian soaps. The premise and plot are ridiculous and this book has many more fantasy elements than i wanted, which was none. "
