Book Description

Special Agents for the Department of Diplomatic Security, Taylor MacAllister and Will Brandt have been partners and best friends for three years, but everything changed the night Taylor admitted the truth about his feelings for Will. But it's complicated...

Taylor agreed to a camping trip in the High Sierras -- despite the fact that he hates camping -- because Will wants a chance to save their partnership. But the trip is a disaster from the first, and things rapidly go from bad to worse when they find a crashed plane and a couple of million dollars in stolen money.

With a trio of murderous robbers trailing them, Will and Taylor are on dangerous ground, fighting for their partnership, their passion...and their lives.

Followed by Old Poison.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Ground by Josh Lanyon November 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The book begins abruptly: Will and Taylor are hiking and arguing. They are FBI special agents and Taylor is recovering from a shooting and they have taken a vacation. Taylor resents Will for something, we at first don't understand and Will wants both to take care of Taylor but also hit him to instill some common sense in him.

Little by little we understand that other than partners they are also friends and maybe something more: both Will than Taylor are gay, but between them there wasn't nothing more than teasing and glaring until the last fatal night, the night before Taylor's accident. And then there wasn't a right moment to face the argument, until now: in the open space of mountains all seem to be free from restrain, words and thoughts. And Will and Taylor seem to not be able to do other than yell to each other and offend each other.

When they only want to understand how they can go on or move on on their relationship, real world interposes between them, in the guise of a cold case: a robbery to a casino, ended with the lost of the spoil. And now the thieves want it back.

The book is not very long, little more than 100 pages, but I think it's more sexy than previous Josh Lanyon's books. There is actually only one real sex scene, and it's hot, but since as I said the book is not very long, and the building tension that promises the real scene and the simmering ashes that follow are both long and detailed, the scene is the apex of the book. And it's also very good, very... erotic.

Taylor and Will are both strong characters. I think this is the real problem: they fear to give a chance to their relationship since both fear to lose independency and the alpha male role in the match.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting beginning to a new series October 25, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the writing, Will and Taylor, their hiking adventure and their romance. It was short, but everything was there: where the characters came from, where they were and finally where they were going.

I never thought watching someone trying to find the most comfortable position to get to sleep could be so sexy.

On to the sequel!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not published April 2012 December 3, 2013

I feel bad giving this 3 stars, because my gripe is not truly the authors fault. I like this book, probably about 4 stars worth. My problem? I purchases this book in Jan 2012. I purchases it inadvertently again in Dec 2013 because amazon said I did not own it, probably because it was rereleased. Amazon, it cannot be that hard to link up books that have been re-released. Author, you should state in it's blurb it is a rerelease.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good start to the series January 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Though I felt a bit like I came in 20 my minutes late to the movie, when the story started, I thoroughly enjoyed it once I in there. I loved the action and the chemistry between Will and Taylor. A good start to the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it in one sitting June 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this story and actually wish it was longer. I fell in love with the characters and did buy the sequel because of it. There wasn't an over abundance of sex scenes like I've seen in other books of similar genre. I enjoy seeing the characters fighting their "inner demons", emotions for each other, and a decent plot rather than just a series of sex scenes. Because of these two books with Taylor and Will, I would probably buy other books by this author as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Beginning February 23, 2013
By CCDuke
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this story. Another great beginning for what, I'm sure, will be another fantastic series by Josh Lanyon. So far I haven't read a book of his that I haven't really liked and this was no exception. Nothing better than two federal agents, an unsolved robbery, the High Sierras, possible death and a startled bear. Just good fun!
