Text messages, threatening phone calls and death threats are just the beginning and soon Damien is suffering panic attacks and anxiety that he thought he'd had well under control.
Justin and Marcus ask their bar manager, Robert Wyler to act as a sort of bodyguard for Damien while Marcus does his best to investigate who is behind the stalking.
Robert and Damien do not hit it off straight away. Robert thinks Damien is arrogant and aloof, when really he is trying to hold himself together. Robert is large, muscle-bound and covered in tattoos and Damien mistakenly thinks that Robert is into BDSM and he wants to run a mile. He'd been in abusive BDSM relationship before, but his previous lover was really just a domineering, abusive man pretending he was into BDSM. He wouldn't have known a proper, loving, consensual BDSM relationship if it bit him on the nose!
They are thrown together more and more and when they finally do get together, Damien gets cold feet and calls the whole thing off altogether. Are they just fooling themselves, or can they really make a go of i?
I hadn't realised it was part of a series before I got my review copy, but luckily enough this is a self-contained story with some recurring characters, who are introduced again anyway, so you won't miss out if you read this one first.
It's a well-written compelling tale with a good balance of romance and mystery. There are some flashbacks of Damien's time in that abusive relationship, although not particularly graphic, it does hammer it home how bad Damien's past was and now he's trying to recover.
Both Robert and Damien were well-drawn characters and you got to read inside both their heads, which is always a bonus for me. The slow pace of their developing relationship suits these characters and the love scenes flow quite naturally.
Robert is so understanding and tender with Damien that some scenes were very emotional. Damien has been through the wringer and Robert is just the man to help him get back on track.
A very satisfying read. Oh, and thanks to the author for explaining the title in the book. I would have been wondering the whole time what it meant!

Book: Roaring Waters
Series: The Warfield Hotel Mysteries#3
Author: C.J. Baty
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services
Release: July 24, 2017
CJ Baty has written a few books reviewed highly by our Guild. The author had sent us this book for review submission and I chose it for me….my weak spot; I love mysteries and romance. Roaring Waters is the 3rd book in the Warfield Hotel Mysteries. The author mentions this book is a standalone which makes me think it would not have a cliff hanger, making it all good for me.
CJ Baty has given me a very haunting story introducing first Damien Fitzgerald. He is a newspaperman, digging up the worst in people and writing exposes to bring them to justice. Not a safe job by any means, retaliation can bite you in the ass. Presently, he has Tony as his assistant, digging up dirt on his next story. We also learn he has a stalker bothering him with threatening phone calls, yet he ignores them which was kinda odd as we slowly learn his past history.
He finally decides to leave town for a few days as the maniac caller becomes more threatening. He makes a trip to Justin and Marcus his best friends, who own the Warfield. This is where the sparks fly when he and Robert Wyler who is the bar manager at the hotel meet. Robert ‘s looks are deceiving. He is tall, wears his hair long, well muscled and tattoo’d ……Looks are deceiving as inside he is not into the life and is kinda nerdy. Damien likes the finer stuff, Robert is a beer and pizza guy.
While Marcus and Justin handle the maniac stuff, we learn slowly about Damien’s past, that has caused him to have extreme panic attacks. Big steady Robert is there to talk him down and the relationship blossoms; each learning not to judge a book by its cover.
The author takes us on a wild story and wonderful coming together of two beautiful men. Robert’s tenderness blew me away. Damien hated being weak, yet I felt him very strong with what he has gone through!!
I am assuming these back stories might have been told in the first two books and now I feel the need to read those as well. I think you will too. Loved it Ms. Baty.
