Delarosa Secrets #1

24013393Surrounded by secrets, two men search for a serial killer, while trying to keep it from becoming personal.

Mac Guzman is a Texas Ranger and lead detective on a serial killer case rocking the city of Houston. He’s willing to take help from anyone, especially when it comes in the form of the gorgeous FBI profiler, Tanner Wallace. Mixing business with pleasure has never been an option for Mac, but he just might change his mind and seduce Tanner into his bed.

Tanner Wallace joined the Bureau and became a profiler to catch bad guys. Also, it might have a little do with making up for the evil caused by his family’s business. When he’s called in to consult on a serial killer case in Houston, Tanner never expects to meet Mac. The handsome Texas Ranger brings to mind hot, sweaty nights wrapped in each other’s arms, yet Tanner knows Mac would walk away if he ever found out who Tanner’s family really is.

With the threat of another murder hanging over their heads, Tanner and Mac will have to find a way to work past their differences before the killer strikes again.

I like this author’s writing style, quite a bit actually. They always have interesting characters with solid, unique story lines and this read was no exception. Here we have a Texas Ranger trying to solve a case that hits too close to home and an FBI profiler with with a secret that could ruin his career and his relationship.

This was a quick read for me but the subject matter never seemed glossed over and the MC and secondary characters were richly detailed. I liked the serial killer storyline a lot, being in the killer’s head as he was stalking his victims added a very Hannibalesque feel to the read.

The relationship between the men was fast and furious but believable and one that I could see lasting. Great chemistry from start to finish.
I’m intrigued with the secondary storyline of the Delarosa drug cartel and how that’ll impact further stories in this series. Loved the reveals that happened throughout in relation to it so I’ll definitely be checking out further books to see what happens next.

I’m giving Borderline a B-

By Heller

In the United Nations of Book Pushers I represent the Canadian contingent. I've known Has, Lou, E and Minn for a few years now and I've discovered many a new author from them for which I will be forever grateful. New to me often translates to "Where has this book been all my life?" and leads to endless re-reads.

The majority of my childhood was spent with my nose in a book (not that it's any different now) and I always carried at least one with me wherever I went no matter whatever trouble I was up to. My e-reader is something I could never give up now, despite my initial resistance to it. I love my books but carrying around a library in a small electronic device is a thrill that never gets old.

I read anything and everything that strikes my fancy: Regency, Retro-Romance, Sci-fi/Fantasy, Graphic Novels, Urban Fantasy, Post-Apoc...the list is pretty much endless. I tend to cycle through interests so it really just depends on my mood at the time. I would say that right now M/M books have me firmly in their grasp and they've been the majority of my reads for the past couple of years. I think there's nothing better than headjacking into a story and characters created by an author, I'm always up for a ride to a place I've never been before.
