Blurb:

Even if Ross and Kyle make it out of this alive, will the secrets in Kyle’s heart stay safe?

Kyle gets caught up in a case that is entirely unrelated to Bodyguards Inc. Not only does he abruptly need time off, but he has to have absolute trust and complete support from Ross without being able to tell Ross a thing.

CIA Agent Stefan Mortimer needs Kyle’s help with a case of a geneticist and a missing formula. Trouble is being led right to Kyle’s door, endangering the life of the team he has built and the man that he loves.

Going undercover, with Ross as his fiance, is the worst kind of torture in so many ways, but it is the only answer. Kyle and Ross may well live through this but Kyle is convinced his heart won’t survive.

My View:

This is easily my favourite book of the series so far. We have waited and waited for Ross and Kyle’s story and in all honesty that wait was more than worth it!

When Kyle employed Ross as his PA 2 years ago it was instant lust. Those feelings grew rapidly until Kyle was overwhelmed with how he felt and very much in love. Rather than risk their friendship and make things difficult at work he keeps his feelings bottled up and has absolutely no idea that Ross feels the same way.

Kyle’s latest mission is not one that is on the books for BI but rather something that has come through covertly from an old colleague. The mission itself is simple enough, go keep an eye on a young genius at a local hotel, but the cover story sees him pretending to be newly married and on his honeymoon. His pretend groom is Ross. Oh, the irony!!

For both men this is their worst nightmare come true. Having to pretend to be something that they are not but that they both so desperately want.

This story is very much about the build-up as it well after half way before any romance takes place but the build-up is very important. It shows their worries, their depth of feeling and their real struggles as they try not to mess things up.

The mystery side of the story was quite straight forward even though Ross ends up in hospital but it was their dancing around each other and then the final resolution that was the real story for me.
