I am having trouble enjoying these books because the combination of cultural/ethnic stereotyping and lack if research is mildly offensive.

In the last book, the Asian gang member discussion was peppered with Asian puns, mostly Chinese. Those gang members have turned Vietnamese, although they have Chinese names.

They call the Mexican gang members "Cholos." Really?

The book is centered around a Japanese restaurant named "Red Dragon" that serves tea smoked duck as a specialty. REALLY?

Basically, the impression I get is that gang members must be identified as being "foreign," but once something is "foreign" further distinction is unnecessary. So, using Vietnamese puns for Vietnamese people (or names, for that matter) or having a Japanese restaurant actually serve Japanese food (or have a Japanese name) is all unnecessary. Besides, Chinese and Japanese are basically the same thing anyway, right? And Vietnamese. All Asian. Who can tell them apart anyway?

(Hint. Search "Red Dragon Restaurant.". You'll get tons of hits, it is a popular name. FOR CHINESE RESTAURANTS. WHICH IS WHERE YOU MIGHT EXPECT TO FIND THE CHINESE DISH "TEA SMOKED DUCK.")

This second novella in the Dangerous Ground series builds up on the already strong and satisfying premise of the first book (Dangerous Ground). The character dynamic and the progression of their relationship play out against a new, compelling mystery related to Taylor's past when he was stationed in Japan. The guys are now one month into their relationship and settling into a new, though still fragile, `domesticity'. They obviously care a lot for each other and the way they communicate through their physical passion, and chemistry, reveals a lot about their feelings, but it doesn't hide the fact that there's still some underlying tension between them, not just carried over from the events narrated or referenced to in the previous book, but also related to Taylor's past in Japan, to Will's relationship with ex lover Bradley, etc. and more in general due to both guys being `alpha males' over and beyond their different character and personality traits. The tension and frustration mount when the guys are given separate assignments (and working partners), and when Taylor finds himself in serious danger following a series of threats all apparently related to the time he'd spent in Japan.
In this book, the author fleshes out both guys' personalities in even more depth than in the first novella, once again using both characters' alternating POVs.
As with other Josh Lanyon characters I've read so far, Will and Taylor are both `flawed heroes', and all the more believable and human. The sex scenes are never gratuitous or meaningless, and they're very intense and beautifully written.

As a Josh Lanyon fan I have to admit to very mixed feelings about this story: the relationship part was really good with interesting and emotional developments, complete with some of the signature Lanyon angst. The "mystery" part was okay and I was able to suspend my disbelief for most of the story. But there were some surprisingly sloppy aspects: the research had clearly been minimal and basic mistakes kept pulling me out of the story. Just one example: tea smoked duck is a Chinese meal and not the usual fare a Japanese restaurant. There were lots of little things like that and they shouldn't happen with as good a writer as Lanyon. It won't stop me from reading the next book in the series, this author is always worth reading.

I like Will and Taylor a lot, and I enjoyed getting to learn a little bit more about Taylor's past. Taylor is definitely my favorite of the two, and I thought the tension between them given their history was believable and well done. Will did sort of annoy me at times. It's obvious that he loves Taylor, but he seemed to struggle with the idea of it a lot, and then seemed surprised that Taylor believed that Will wasn't as invested in the relationship as Taylor was.

Interesting case, and I'm definitely curious for more!

A great addition to the series, in this second book, the characters work towards finding balance in both their personal and professional lives, each character gets to deal with their own ghosts of the past, one as a mystery, the other more as closure, and both Taylor and Will come out stronger and closer. Cannot wait to read the next one in the series!
