This story was, at least, better than the book featuring Dax. What a mess that was--terrible characters and a lame plot...I can't even remember every awful detail, I guess I've blocked it all out for my own survival. ;)
I wasn't sure if I was going to read this one but curiosity made me give it a go. I thought it was ok. Although, the "bad guy" was pretty obvious and the story relied a LOT on the novelty of the romance--for me anyway.
It was slow in places and I had to force myself to keep reading. I know I'm not the intended audience (as a straight female) but it could have used some better plot and character development.
As I said, it was ok.
I was ready to give up on this series as the first book was just so-so and the second one, completely awful. But the next one looks somewhat intriguing.
This third book, at least, was a step up from the second one.
Hopefully that trend will continue.
In the first place...a rock star that picks up guys all the time but nobody knows he's gay? Really? None of those bros ever said to a friend, "you'll never believe who I went home with last night." Um, right. That's totally ridiculous.
And the ex-FBI agent refuses to acknowledge he's gay for wayyyyyy too long for me to believe it. He has the emotional breadth of a toddler.
They spend fifty pages just getting hard whenever the other one walks into the room. But nothing much happens.
I hung in until the two guys finally shared a kiss. But by then I just didn't care. It wasn't hot because there was zero emotion built in.
The thing that makes this series so exceptional is it’s uniqueness. For one thing the band Sphere of Irony has it’s own unique make up. Two of the members are from the ghettos in London and the other two members are from tinsel town, Hollywood,CA. Two come from impoverished rough backgrounds and the other two come from priveliged back grounds. Together these four men have come together not only to make music but have became brothers. They fully support each other no matter what their record company, fans, and lives dictate. The other thing that makes this series unique is the characters themselves. They are not your typical wild and spoiled rockstars. They are very grounded and try to lead ordinary lives while being at the top of their careers. They have experienced it all and held onto their true selves. With the exception of one, he has to hide a part of himself. Because of the band’s popularity and his good looks, the record company wants him to hide his sexuality. He is a gay man with millions of women as fans.
Gavin Walker has had to hide his sexuality his entire life. He had to hide being gay in his early years because of his father’s career. Being a famous Hollywood producer of military action films and also being a former military career man has made his father hard. He resents his only son being gay. Gavin’s younger years were blemished with hate and despair. Once he was free from his father’s rule and started to build his own life his sexuality was once again forced to be hidden. This time it was his career and his bandmates careers on the line. But somebody knows his secret. He has a stalker that is becoming more and more dangerous.
Gavin is at the end of his rope. He’s scared, stressed, and falling apart. The only thing that gives him hope is the former FBI profiler his manager has brought in to find the stalker threatening his life. The biggest surprise is his attraction to his protector. Mitch Hale is a straight man and clearly has no interest in Gavin romantically. But the vibes are there and the confusion is even greater.
Mitch Hale has to find Gavin’s stalker before it’s too late. This case has blurred lines and nothing is predictable. He can’t get a handle on who the stalker could be or what his motivations are. He can’t get his client to cooperate with him long enough to keep him safe. He can’t understand his attraction to his client. He wants Gavin Walker to stay alive for more than professional reasons. He wants to explore his attraction to Gavin Walker.
As the danger escalates so does Gavin and Mitch’s relationship. These two are going to go up in flames.
I could not put Resist down. This book kept me on the edge of my seat. The chilling suspense was riveting. It kept me guessing up to the very end when the stalker was finally revealed. The relationship between these two men was beautiful. I loved that they gave their all to one another when they finally surrendered to their feelings.
I highly recommend Resist by Heather C. Leigh. The Sphere of Irony series is exceptional.
