Roman is a successful Broadway choreographer, Malik has his own cyber-security business. The book opens on their wedding day. Malik doesn't show. Of course, he's been kidnapped and held in a cold, windowless cell and his only company is a bag of MacDonald's food (cruel and unusual punishment) a couple times a day. He manages to get help and gets out. When he does, it leads to all kinds of mayhem as his captors try to kill him and his lover. Finally, in a trip to London, they find out who and why - and their lives change, permanently.
There are so many good things about this book that you'll just have to read it yourself - I can't possibly list them all. But there's a couple I want to mention. Malik's backstory is told as he languishes in the dark cell, and it's not pretty. It is only Roman's love that has saved him from a dark and lonely future because of the scars of an indescribably traumatic youth. The other is that the incarceration in his windowless prison is, fortunately, quite short and thus, bearable.
I should have known it would be, because Andrew Grey is simply the master. He manages to mix adventure, action, mystery and romance with a light seasoning of not-too-graphic sex (the way I like it!) and produce one more page burner. I read it, pretty much, in a single sitting, and breathlessly awaited the next threat, the next moment and the inevitable Andrew Grey happily-ever-after.
What made this book so attractive to me is that it shared some of the wonderful characters from his earlier book, "Stranded", which made this a comfortable coming-home for the reader, rather than a journey to a new and alien territory.
I know I'm just waxing rhapsodic. Some Andrew Grey books cover great, universal themes, some don't. This one doesn't, but it's such a sheer pleasure just to experience his writing that I've ordered two more of his books while writing this review.
I can't recommend any Andrew Grey book enough. As I said earlier, he is the Master.
This one just wasn't for me.
Malik's kidnapping was interesting, as was his solution to get himself out. Definitely felt sorry for poor Roman trying to figure out where his groom went! Great ending as well.
Another good story from one of my favorite authors!
