4.5 stars. This! This is so much more of the action scenes I've enjoyed in the series and had wanted more of. The cherry on top was some D/s action with Shibari rope bondage! Loved that, it's one of my favorite types of kink! Geo brings his hot self to a photo session that Lee is doing with the Hercs Mercs for a charity calendar. Lee is immediately drawn by the rope harness that Geo wears to the shoot and the photo session becomes a bondage session, real fast! They spend a few days together but we really don't get to see that, we're just told that.
Lee is primarily a photojournalist and after Geo leaves, he's called to an assignment in the Middle East. Geo is what I want to see when I hear the word mercenary. His next assignment, guarding a Senator at a summit in the same country that Lee is in, becomes a fight for their lives. It was a lot of action and tension, which kept me engrossed in the story. I really liked the character of the Senator, Elizabeth, who also became a friend and advisor to both guys as they struggled with the changed dynamic from newly met lovers to protector and protected.
The only drawback for me, as it has been for every book so far, is the limited length. They're novellas and they just don't allow for much development of the relationship. I really liked Geo and Lee and would've like to see more of what drew them into being a couple, outside of the interactions while in danger. I was also a bit disappointed that there were only two scenes in the bedroom! A little more of the D/s development would have been welcome. The ending was done very well and I was able to buy into the relationship wholeheartedly but I missed having the extra detail of the intervening months.
I did rate this based on the novella format, as being very well done within that framework. It's my personal preference for a novel length story but I'd like to see the authors write that. I think it could be excellent. I still think it's the very best of the series so far and would recommend it to those that enjoy an alpha type character with military style action with less emphasis on erotic content.
Geo, bodyguard for Hercules Security and Lee, photojournalist, immediately were enamored with each other from the moment Geo stepped foot into Lee’s studio for a sexy calendar shoot. The story quickly progressed- jumping in the sack upon meeting, to both men sent on assignment and then finding each other in the midst of a country coup.
The chemistry between Geo and Lee was palpable and they steamed the sheets with their sexy repertoire and mild BDSM tendencies. A small dose of Shibari added spice to the relationship.
I would have liked more story, learned more about the men and delved into their lives, but regardless, Where Angels Fear to Tread was well-written and well-worth the read. Ari McKay did a nice job of a continuous story flow which kept me interested and wanting more.
