HelenKay Dimon’s suspenseful, provocative series of double agents and dark desire continues with a novel featuring two men bound by a dangerous job—and by the cravings they feel for each other.
As the son of an international crime lord, Will Rivers only inherited one thing after his father died: trouble. The Pentasus organization deals in kidnapping and murder, and Will wants no part of the power grab that’s tearing leadership apart. But the only way he’ll be able to escape is with some help from his former bodyguard, Hunter Cain, whose sculpted body and brooding looks keep Will awake at night. Somehow, Hunter has resisted the tension between them . . . until, suddenly, he gives in.
As a German intelligence officer working deep undercover, Hunter has a very good reason to keep Will in the dark about his identity and his intentions. Although the sex is hot, Hunter’s true feelings are a growing liability. Now the only way to save Will from his old life is to push him deeper into danger. But when two strong men are each determined to protect the other, the heat isn’t just combustible—it’s a firestorm.

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Dimon's contemporary romance never manages to live up to its irresistible premise of international intrigue plus double and triple identities in glamorous Paris. Neither Hunter Cain nor Will Rivers is as engaging as one would expect from their impressive r sum s. Hunter is a German intelligence officer posing as an American agent posing as Will's bodyguard, whose motives other than his blunt interest in sex with Will and loyalties are so indecipherable that readers will soon stop trying to understand. And Will, the spoiled rich scion of a vaguely defined international murder-for-hire family, is as two-dimensional as they come. Most disappointingly, Dimon creates no sense of place at all, so the City of Light might as well be Boise, Idaho. Other than for the moderately steamy if unimaginative sex, there's little reason to bother picking this one up.

Love & Terror-excellent combination
Thank you for the Will & Hunter story. I enjoy books in a series, and appreciate reading about tertiary characters. It makes a series complete.
However, the Editing in both Mr & Mr. Smith and The Talented Mr. Rivers is bad. A well-written/edited book allows the reader to immerse themselves into the story. Misspelled words, grammatical errors are “potholes” interrupting the bliss of reading. This book in particular needs to be rechecked for grammar errors. Flow is more important than content.
I read books at least 3 times, discovering something new each time. I hope an update is available with the editing errors corrected. As I’d love to revisit the S.A.D. team again!
This is book two in the Tough Love series and picks up where book one ended. I recommend you read book one to get a better understanding, but can be read alone but I guarantee you will go and read book one. A fantastic read of spies, suspense, and hot m/m sex.
We met Hunter and Will in the first book and now we get their story. There is an intense attraction between the two but can they trust each other, especially when bullets start to fly. I highly recommend this story, fair warning, you will not be able to put down once started.
<3 Will & Hunter together!
I have to say that I don't know who I liked more Will or Hunter, they are both great characters and they each brought something unique to the relationship.
This story has a lot of action packed scenes as well as steamy sexy times of Hunter and Will together. We get to see all the guys from Mr. & Mr. Smith again and dare I say that Fisher and Hunter are actually learning to get along!
I'm curious as to whom will be the next to get their HEA....
