As it turns out, the character on the cover in the first book, Bull Krebs, and the one portrayed on the cover of this one, Lowell Cartwright, and not lovers, but they were hooked up together in the past as mercenaries for an unnamed outfit from whose grips Lowell (aka Spook to Bull) is desperately trying to break free so he can retire. This sets up a desperate trip for Lowell to Harrisburg, Pa., for the second time--the first time he went was in the previous book and his nefarious and spiteful plan was derailed and brought to a halt by Bull's hard-nosed post-twink boyfriend, Zach Spencer.
This time when he visits Harrisburg, Lowell tries to get around any kind of confrontation by sneaking into Bull's gay club looking to surreptitiously seek out Bull for some advice. But while trying to make himself blend into the crowd, Lowell latches onto one of Zach's best friends, Jeremy Hogdson, on the dance floor with his other buddies from the first book, Tristan and Kevin. Lowell, normally a spook without portfolio, seems to have temporarily lost his modus operandus, and from there we are taken on a fast-moving and emotionally roiling roller coaster ride that will drop your jaw a bit and warm all of your insides every chapter along the way.
The story itself is simple, with complications of Lowell's attempt to extract himself from a life best left behind both somewhat predictable and suitably hair-raising. What you do not expect, despite the promotional synopsis, is the deep seeded angst which both Lowell and Jeremy go through to try to justify their attraction to each other, or to simply cut it all off and disappear in opposite directions.
At every turn Jeremy is confronted by his friends, led by Zach and Bull, to caution himself. At every turn Jeremy's one serious request of Lowell--why are you doing this?--is met with no answer. When that answer finally comes, it will surprise you at first and then make complete sense if you have managed to get inside both heads of these beautifully developed characters.
And that guy on the cover? Follow his eyes--wouldn't you want to have a guy with that look protecting you? Another super charged read by a master of characters who has set us up for another one in this series--wonder who will be on the next cover?
As it were, the chemistry between the two men was undeniable. From their initial encounter, it was evident that sparks flew. However, as with all Andrew Grey's book, the MCs have to endure many twists and turns before they are able to connect. UPSIDE DOWN was a nerve-wracking ordeal for the three dimensional MCs, who at first glance, seemingly had nothing in common except their connections to Bull and Zack.
Though the journey towards their HEA was a bumpy ride, once they got it together, it was EPIC. Mr. Grey introduced new very well developed secondary characters, who brought much to the story, without distracting from the romance between Lowell and Jeremy. It was a pleasure to visit with the motley crew of Bull, Zach, Kevin and Tristan. My heart bled for Tris, I hope a HEA is in his future.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! ...........SUPREME!!!!!
