“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!

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
