I m frustrated with you, Mr Bowie This novel the first I ve read from you was both exciting and thrilling not a mystery as much as a suspensful, edge of your seat read My beef I spent an afternoon reading the last 100 pages every chance I got because I couldn t put this e book down Congrats on a fine suspenseful novel I m looking forward to reading in this series
I understand the reason for flashbacks we need to get to know the character a bit first before we care about their backstory but it was kind of cheesily done He sat down and let himself remember OoookayIt s almost, but not quite, completely PWP Porn with plot Even though it s got quite inexplicit sex scenes, relatively speakingIt s probably because of the sex as the answer to everything thing they kind of have going on.Garcia as a villain was so cliche as to be laughable He was a Vizzini, basica [...]
Loved this book It s a pity there s not stories about established relationships and happy ones too Not about the couples in need of consulting or with big problems, but just happy and loving, like Nick and Eric I loved these two guys a great deal and I m happy there s two books about them and then I m off to the Portrait series Since I m a romance girl first and foremost, I liked, that the story focused on relationships stuff , than an average thriller would, but I loved the detective part too [...]
This one seemed phoned in to me Granted, I am picky about my romance thrillers and want them to work as thrillers and not just as romances This one didn t for me The perilous situations were repetitive and required the hero to be both very dumb and amazingly lucky The subplot with the psychiatrist didn t work for me either He didn t behave believably to me Same with the villain he changed his whole MO for no reason I could see except plot requirements.
This is the first in the Nick Fallon mysteries Nick is a partner in the Jeff Stevens PI business Jeff Peter are on a month long vacation leaving Nick to handle the business Unfortunately, a criminal who Nick helped put on death row while a cop in Philly has picked this time to escape hell bent on revenge Francisco Garcia is claimed to be clever though his actions seem violent and psychotic then clever Francisco blames Nick and others in law enforcement for the death of his youngest son who was [...]
I finished the Portrait Series this morning and loved it so much I jumped right into the Nick Fallon Series and in one day finished the entire book Once again I am hooked The same elements that kept me reading the prior books stayed true although there was less mystery of who is it and of what s going to happen next , which was actually a nice break You know quickly who the bad guy is and once the plot starts it really doesn t stop Not so much unraveling a mystery that I have grown accustomed t [...]
First due to the title , I put this on my mm mystery shelf BUT, after I m finished, I must put it on my mm romance instead Why Because I don t think there is a mystery here The readers will know from upfront, who the bad guy is, what he is planning to do, and actually, I think almost half of the story or is it 2 3rd actually talks about how Nick feels about Eric or the other way around or flashback over his life and relationship prior to Eric AND, since the writing also tells from the bad guy s [...]
Tough, gritty, strong plot, vibrant characters I just wish I had started with Portrait of Phillip This is a series well worth reading.
2.5 stars I liked the characters and the story but the constant point of view changes got confusing and the story just drug on too long
I think I ve said before that I m not all that into romantic suspense, but I have read a few either by accident or via a reading challenge This was read because of the later You are introduced right away to Nick Fallon and the tragic circumstances in his background that still haunts him He has a new life partner, Eric, and a new career as a P.I But a drug lord he captured and put away from his past life as a police detective, one who has sworn to kill Nick, has escaped prison and is after Nick I [...]
This story follows Nick in the aftermath of a murderer he d helped convict escaping from prison Nick is mainly worried about what might happen to his partner Eric We get some well done flashbacks to explain the back story.While I thought the book was reasonably enjoyable, I wasn t able to really immerse myself in it for a couple of reasons First, Garcia drove me insane Every time he would confront them, Nick would talk about Joseph Then Garcia would get angry and try to get Nick to back down Thi [...]
I wish this book had at least one strong line either investigation or romance, but it had none.The interaction between characters seemed staged and stereotyped They were saying things not because they felt them, but because they the author thought it might be appropriate and expected in that particular situation A lot of high sounding phrases with nothing behind them And I also disliked being constantly reminded that Garcia was so, so smart What exactly made him smart view spoiler Hiding in the [...]
4.25 out of 5 A fine M M novel that brings in some very destructive stuff and which puts good people into serious danger This book is a part of a detective series and while it reads much like the old detective books of the past decades Mike Hammer, Ian Fleming, et al it has as its main characters gay men who have found deep and satisfying love and stability with one another They are at risk, not only personally, but their relationship is under attack by people from Nick s past It is a tense and [...]
Nick Fallon his name even sounds like he s a Private Investigator In A Deadly Game Nick does his best to save the world from the evil drug lord Garcia, protect his boyfriend Eric, and his business partner Jeff He does this all with attitude, sarcasm, witty banter, and a heart as big as Laguna Beach its self I really liked this book It s not perfect, but nothing is so off that it threw up a red flag On to the next book, A Deadly Deception I give A Deadly Game four stars.
A Deadly Game is a good investigation suspense book That the main characters are already in a relationship leaves room for development of the search for the escaped prisoner Through flashbacks, the history of Nick and Eric s relationship is told, as is Nick s career as a detective who had investigated and arrested the escapee Nick s character definitely received attention than Eric s, but readers do get to see Eric s love for Nick and his determination to be an equal partner.
What a great book the first in a great series I highly recommend reading the Portrait series by J.P Bowie first It is not necessary but these MC s are in that series and are seen throughout The MC s in the Portrait series, along with many of the secondary characters, are seen throughout this series too It was a very entertaining and intriguing series well worth it I m glad Nick and Eric have their own series they are both extremely sexy, interesting and charismatic.
If you like Tom Clancy type thrillers, this book is for you It s cut exactly from the cookie cutter paperback thrillers you find in airports, with the exception of the protagonist I have to admit it s nice having the hot sex in a standard thriller be of the guy on guy variety rather than the usual dry heterosexual variety But barring that, this is a regular vanilla thriller.
Lots of backstory revealed and than once, I doubted this was the first book in the series There were references to events that weren t in the huge flashback and, now I see this is the first in the series, I m a little annoyed by its inclusion, particularly as it served no purpose other than to confuse me A star off a 4 star read for that.
A solid story, a little heavy in the planning department which was a bit annoying, I usually like speedier reads The character s were likable and well drawn, Nick and Eric are a great pair I do kind of wish there was a bit mystery here, but good The next in the series isn t an autobuy for me but since I do like the characters it s one of those I might buy in the future.
My opinion only Others seemed to have enjoyed this book.This was sailing along nicely until the convicted murderer escaped and it went downhill from there By the time he died it seemed like all the other characters were immature, inept idiots It never got better.
This series goes hand in hand with the author s Portrait series and features many of the same characters If you like series, romance, and a bit of suspense, you ll probably enjoy this one However, I suggest reading the Portrait series first.
Enjoyable story but found the subplot with the psychiatrist a bit strange I liked both Eric and Nick and that they were in a happy and established relationship, it s something I enjoy reading but you don t see too many of those out there.
I would actually rate this a 3.5 It was a solid read Not great, but it kept me interested The plot moved along nicely, and I enjoyed the characters I did feel badly for Norman, but luckily it seems like things are looking better for him.
3.5 starsThis was an enjoyable read overall with nice characters and an interesting plot.
Love this series Very well written The greatest thing about this series is these could be any guys, they just happen to be gay.

There wasn t much of an investigation going on anywhere in this book, unless you count the villain s search for Nick Hopefully, the second book might have of a mystery.
