Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  Jackie Keswick is a new author for me, and I usually don’t pick new authors for the reason of having no clue what their writing is going to be like.  Over the years I have come to have many authors that I have loved and have been known to be pretty picky on what I read.  Now I will say that if I was just choosing a book by its cover, then this would have been the last book I picked up.  The cover is just down right creepy to me, however that is just me.  The title didn’t really do it for me either, but I will tell you that the name of the series was what caught me enough to take a look at the blurb.  It was the attraction of danger that really made me want to give it a look.

Now here you have to very sexy men who so have the hots for each other, and avoid the temptation of giving in.  However there are several factors that prove to be these two sexy men’s undoing.  Explosions, fires, bombs, danger, and hot lust well you get the picture.  Now I have never really been a fan of friends to lover’s romance, but this one makes it a bit hard to ignore.  The chemistry these two have is off the charts.  To top it off it is a mystery and suspense that has me taking a major look at it.  

Joel and Kieran have been friends from the first day he started working.  Now these guys go in and save the day for many, such as rescuing those who are being held hostage or have been kidnapped.  For them they just hit it off, but had not given in to the fire burning inside of them for each other.  Now if you really want to know the juicy details of these two, well pick up this book.

Now I do admit that the characters were hot, but really didn’t catch me as they should have though.  It is more of a telling type of story and not a lot of showing, which did suck for me.  I couldn’t see them in my head to really get a good feel for them though. The sex was minimal in the story, and the first book is more about the details of what this company is about and so forth.  It also felt like the author did throw in certain parts to keep the attention of the reader, and that is not always a good thing.  Such as the fact that for a small story it has way to much going on and the actual romance was slow building.  What is with the mirrors, well if you read you will see why I asked the question, just a different type of kink.  Parts of the story go at a pretty good pace, and then there are others where it slows down too much for me. 

The ending also needed some work to it, let’s just say it just stops and leaves you with questions.  Other than my issues with the story, I still enjoyed it quite a bit.  Just needs a bit of extra tender care to make it a higher rocking book for me.

Blurb: Jack Horwood hates owing favors. But when a simple day out to treat Gareth to the best oysters in England leads to a discovery of drugs and counterfeit money—things that neither Jack nor Gareth have the jurisdiction to handle—he has to call in help. Help that doesn’t come cheap, and that forces him to do something he promised himself he’d never do again—walk away from Gareth and the family he’s starting to make for himself.

Three months undercover is a long time. After missing Gareth’s birthday, Jack is determined not to miss their first anniversary. But coming home and being home are two very different things. So when he is asked to assist with a corporate espionage investigation, Jack can’t say no, despite knowing it will impact his already straining relationship.

Except, of course, he’s walking into a trap….

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I am not really sure what brought my attention to this series at first, but I have to say that I am having a blast reading them. Not only are they well written but the plot is one massive hit with me. The characters are fully developed and totally hot. I always did love a man with a gun. I have never really been a fan of mysteries but this is one of those that just pull you in and keep you captivated with them.

I have not read many stories by this author but am glad that I have taken the chance. Both of the guys have a past that seems to get in the way just a bit. Especially with Jack, it would seem that he just can’t say no to anyone.

What would have been a nice dinner out, has ended up with him leaving his family for three months all because he can’t say no. When they find drugs and money, Jack knew he needed help but asking always cost him in the end. He takes a case that has him gone for three months and now that he is back things are not looking up.

Then once again someone ask him for help and it turns out that it is one major trap. He finds his ass in a lot more trouble than he bargained for. It is up to Gareth to save his ass, or at least that is how Gareth sees it. It would seem that Jack has a bit of a tough streak in him. He kicks ass and takes names later, which for me is a big hit. I love these two together.

I had a blast reading this and would definitely recommend it. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next story.

Blurb: Jack Horwood doesn’t do families. Or Christmas. From the time his mother sold him to her pimp to the moment he walked out on the man he loved, Christmas has always been about change and painful choices. This year seems no different. Helping Daniel and Nico recover from their imprisonment and hunting down those responsible puts Jack in a frame of mind he doesn’t want to inflict on anyone. Least of all Gareth and the tentative relationship they’ve started to rebuild.

But Gareth, for whom Christmas is all about new beginnings, won’t let Jack take the easy way out. He makes him face his ghosts instead. Even when said ghosts invade their bedroom.

When Daniel’s parents are found, Jack is determined to settle the matter without involving Daniel at all. But fate decrees otherwise, and it’s Gareth who helps him finally understand that the strongest bonds are those forged together.

Once he gets that, Jack can step up and make a decision designed to lay his ghosts to rest—for good.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in this series focus on one romantic couple and two teenagers, so I would suggest reading book one first. It makes for a more enjoyable read, as well as giving you some background into why the guys do the things they do and why they are the way they are.

Jack doesn’t really do families, because at one time his mother had sold him to her pimp. He had tried to get over it, but after rescuing Daniel and Nico it has come back to the present.

He had also been in the military, but had thought that he was the one responsible for getting Gareth killed. He still has flash backs from it. However he is moving forward the best he can. With Gareth’s help he is looking towards the future. He looks forward to helping Daniel and Nico the most.

When Daniel’s family shows up in the picture he has to find a way to stop them from wrecking another child’s life. Gareth shows him that as a family they can do more together than apart.

When I read the first book I wasn’t really sure if I was into this story as I should have been, but after reading this story I have to say I can’t wait for the next story. I felt so bad for the kids and what they had gone through, and I have to say that it will have you in tears.

Also Jack’s past is horrible and I was surprised that he had been as loving as he was. This story caught my attention from the first and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me almost everything I could want in a story and I would definitely recommend it.

I loved how the characters were fully developed and showed so much heart in them that I was amazed. It felt like I was right there with them while they were going through it all. I enjoyed it so much that I can’t wait to see what other stories this author has out.

I do hope that there is a third book in this series because I want to see where they go from here.

Job Hunt by Jackie Keswick

Blurb: You don’t greet your new boss dressed like an underage rent boy. But when Jack Horwood—ace hacker and ex-MI6 operative—opens the door to Gareth Flynn, he’s too busy to worry over details like that. And anyway, his potential new boss is his former commanding officer – the same guy Jack has had a crush on since he was seventeen. So he should understand, right?

When he applied for the job in Nancarrow Mining’s corporate security division, Jack had hoped for peaceful days repelling cyber-attacks. Maybe a bit of corporate espionage on the side. His plans didn’t include rescuing abused children, hunting pimps, or dealing with his overly protective and hot-as-hell boss, Gareth Flynn.

Walking away is not an option. Jack never takes the easy way out. More than that, meeting Gareth raises old ghosts that Jack needs to put to rest. Rescuing kids. Taking risks. Saving the day. Jack can do all that—but deciding what to do about his attraction to Gareth isn’t the sort of cloak-and-dagger game Jack plays well.

Yet Gareth, strong and smart and always on hand when needed, might be Jack’s salvation.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This was the first book I have read by this author and was quite surprised. I must admit that if it wasn’t for the blurb I would have probably passed it by. The title is just a bit stiff for me and didn’t catch my attention. The blurb for the book however did. I mean sexy men who carry guns. Damn it is hot.

Jack worked for MI6 but now he is just an ace hacker who has a job to do. He needs a job I should say, but he is a bit off on it all. The one man who had turned him the hell on, is in fact the man who he would work for. He just didn’t know what the job entailed all the way around.

He would be working on the computers at a security division, but it wasn’t exactly what he expected. He had thought on the computer, time to rest, not really hard, but boy does he find out that it is not what he thought. He is saving children, catching the evils and avoiding his boss. The same boss he has the hots for, and has wanted since he was a teen.

Gareth knows he wants Jack working for him. He plans on keeping it a hands on type of job also. Now he just has to get Jack to work the way he wants or should I say play. These two are a hot combination.

This book was fun to read and damn hot. Just reading it set my sheets on fire. The tension, the heat, the passion, the fire between these two is mind-blowing. There was a bit of time in the story that made it to slow, but there are a lot of things that make this book amazing. You get all of the above, plus action, excitement and ass kicking.

I will definitely be looking for more by this amazing author. I had fun and would definitely recommend it.
