“I can’t deny the chemistry that these two had.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve been wanting to read more Charlie Cochet for a while and I picked this up on a whim.  I haven’t read the original series this spins off of but it sounded really interesting and I couldn’t pass it up.  I love m/m romantic suspense and especially if there’s an enemies to lovers edge to the relationship.

I will say that while KEPT IN THE DARK has that enemies feel at first, that trope is quickly sidelined and I think of this more of a second chance romance.  A second chance at what they never got. I think that switch and the progression of their relationship was really fast and that’s probably the thing I wasn’t sold on with this book.  All of a sudden there’s this deep love that almost came out of nowhere while they are working on an op together.  But I can’t deny the chemistry that these two had.

That being said, this was a great read and I think this series has a lot of potential for being a fun RS.  Enough action and danger without it being overwhelming, a great crew of guys and side characters as well, lots of great banter.  All of this really kept me turning the pages.  I’m really curious about the rest of the members of the team and I can’t wait for more books to come out. Oh and did I mention hot?  This was definitely steamy!
