Publisher's Summary

Alejandro Santos is a sharp-as-nails detective who's been struck with a spell of boring cases. He's left unstimulated and unhappy. That is, until Griffin walks in through the doors of Stonewall Investigations and suddenly, everything changes.   

Griffin Banks is the son of a tech mogul and from the outside in, appears to have everything set. But Griffin's battling intense demons of his own. Things get exponentially worse when he wakes up from a drug and alcohol-fueled blackout to find his friend in his living room. His dead friend. Someone murdered her and left him behind.  

Griffin's case is exactly what Alejandro was looking for, and Alejandro happened to be exactly who Griffin was looking for. When powerful sparks begin to fly between the two, both men will be faced with new challenges. They'll be tested in ways neither would have ever seen coming. Griffin and Alejandro will need to navigate a winding, treacherous road on their journey to finding happiness together.  

Contains mature themes.

Ok

I liked book 1 better. This, A Lethal Love (bk 2), wasn’t bad, the romance was just melodramatic and simple. The relationship between Griffin & Alejandro was too magic-ish. Then the timing of the mystery investigation was glacial to accommodate Griff’s health timeline. There are glimpses of other known characters & the big bad unicorn mystery keeps running in the background, badly timed to mess with our protags’ better days. Being a murder mystery, there’s some blood & danger but even so, it’s mostly happy once the romance starts to bloom. Still, it’s more up than down so it works as a feel good story.

Mystery: the elements worked out ok, but the timing seemed wrong. I have no idea how long regular investigations take but it sounded like A was *only* working on G’s… for *months* with no headway. Maybe I missed a line mentioning secondary (boring) cases also still happening?

Steam: Med. Playful & loving M/M sexytimes, sometimes. Not as much page time as in book 1.

Narration: The accent worked better for Alejandro than Enzo. It was interesting to hear several words pronounced with spanish vowels (like /mus-EH-um/ for /mus-EE-um/). Griffin got a little whiny but overall it was fine.

A Lethal Love

It was a little hard to like Griffin but he got better. The murder mystery was a little less a part of this book than I prefer. The narrator was great!

Narrator is excellent, however . . .

This book has a good premise, but the repetition, angst and quantity of sex scenes causes the entire story line to be diluted to the point of non-existence. Every time a character is speaking, we have to rehear all of the angst going on in his mind. Then a bit of the plot, then we have another sex scene. Gay is not all about sex. It is about being with someone who can make you fly outside of the bedroom (or kitchen or living room etc) Just saying . . . . One more thought, Max has to be Maxine or something similar. No man would write that much angst in one volume, or a series the size of a set of encyclopedia for that matter.

Another winner

This second book of the series is another winner. Max Walker has written main characters with heart, who find love while investigating a murder while managing grief, alcohol addiction, and mental illness. Alex and Griffin are multi-dimensional people who have serious issues, both historical and present, that they have to deal with but don’t let get in the way of their romance. While this is in the category of romantic suspense, there isn’t a lot of detective/procedural detail, the main focus is on the relationship that develops between the characters who are brought together by a murder. I’m off to buy the next in series!
