Delarosa Secrets #3

25373196When the truth comes out, Victor and Bieito must decide how strong their love really is.Victor Delarosa has been the head of the Delarosa cartel for most of his adult life and Bieito Perez has been there by his side the entire way. Yet Victor has secrets he’s kept hidden, even from his long-time lover, and when those secrets show up on Victor’s doorstep, he struggles to find a way to explain while hoping he won’t lose Bieito.

Being Victor Delarosa’s right hand man and his lover is difficult at times for Bieito Perez, but he wouldn’t have his life any other way. Until the day he realizes Victor’s been keeping secrets and he has to re-evaluate their relationship.

Between dealing with a rival cartel, law enforcement, and everything else being a drug lord requires, Victor and Bieito need to redefine their lives and find the courage to say the word ‘love’ out loud before it’s too late for anything other than good-bye.

Victor and Bieito have intrigued me from the first, you can’t get much more anti-hero than the head of a drug cartel and his personal muscle. There’s a lot of testosterone floating around but make no mistake these two are very much in love. It’s a sweet love made all that more intense for the fact that it must remain hidden. Theirs is a long standing affair and if I could characterization the relationship with one word it would be loyalty.

I have to say that I wasn’t to sure how events were going to pan out. It was hard to imagine how things would work out safely for them but I must say that the end surprised me. I wasn’t expecting the twist that happened with regards to Victor. I like the unexpected so that was a bit of a treat.

I can’t say that I was initially a huge fan of the time jump in the epilogue but thinking back I can appreciate that it just reinforced the loyalty that the men have for each other and the depth of emotion they shared. I was glad to see what happened with these two men. I think out of all of the pairs I’ve been rooting for them to be happy and safe together so this was a win for me.

I’m giving Cold Truth a C+

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.
