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
By Elisa
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 Dangerously Good! June 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read several books by Josh Lanyon. What sets him apart from other authors in this genre is that he writes about real people with real emotions. In fact, I read his books for the characters he creates, not for the plots. Lanyon has a control over writing that is not that easy to achieve. His narratives maintain the proper tone at all times. Yet, the words are never stilted or out of place to the characters or the situation being written about. I've never encountered any stereotypical writing in any of his books.

Dangerous Ground is the first in this series. It is a short piece I read in one sitting. Yet, it left me longing for much more material that explores these characters' lives. Lanyon is one of the best genre writers I've ever come across. This book is one of his best efforts. I highly recommend anything he writes. You will be treated to fine writing, likeable and believable characters and excellent storytelling.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful series! November 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just started reading this series a few days ago, needless to say, as with all of Josh Lanyon's writing, it's impossible to put down! This is a strong one emotionally and action wise. I liked a lot the way the plot is structured, how you slowly get to know these characters and they're so unpredictable sometimes in an edge-of-seat, fun way, mostly, one cannot help but love them :) Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but sweet January 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say that these men are two of my favorites that Josh has written.
They are well developed and seemingly real. There is no 'fakeness' in
them that I could find. The emotions and the reasons behind them seem

If you like m/m romance, you won't be disappointed in this story or the
two that follow it either, for that matter.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Ground -Josh Lanyon December 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first of the Dangerous Ground Series, the beginning of adventures that will make you want to finish the entire series in one sitting. Mr. Lanyon is remarkable storyteller and captures his characters in both the mundane and exciting moments of their lives. If you are not already a fan then this is a great way to start the journey.
