His mission was seduction—not falling in love.
When young Sebastian Brambani meets a sexy and exciting older man, he’s easily seduced. But for spy Kyle Grant, it’s all business. Sebastian is simply a pawn in Kyle’s mission to acquire a dangerous chemical weapon from Sebastian’s criminal father. Kyle’s life is his work for a shadowy international agency protecting the world from evil, and he can’t worry about what will happen to Sebastian when the job is done.
Sebastian’s unwitting role in Kyle’s plan is the last straw for his ruthless father, who has been embarrassed by his gay son for the last time. But when Kyle discovers Sebastian could be the key to finding the deadly Chimera, he rescues him from his father’s hitman and fights to keep him alive. Can a hardened spy and naïve college student take down a criminal kingpin, stay one step ahead of the killers on their trail—and fight the scorching attraction between them?
This gay romance from Keira Andrews features sexy spies, an age difference, a sheltered and passionate virgin, action and adventure, and of course a happy ending.
Wow. What a exciting, entertaining ride. I feel like I was watching a good James Bond movie, with some great scenes from Mission Impossible, a few episodes of CockyBoys awesomeness added to the mix tied up in a cute love-story bow. The Chimera Affair is a wonderful combination of all that and I was having great fun reading it, being at the edge of my seat till the last page.
Keira Andrews has an amazing way with words and she can create all different kinds of fictional worlds for us readers to get lost in. The Chimera Affair was previously released a few years ago and if you haven’t had the chance to read it, it’s high time to catch up. You will have fun, I promise.
I am not saying everything in the story is very likely to happen in real life but that’s what fiction and reading is for. The writing is gripping, the descriptions of events and places are very vivid and colorful, the portrayal of the characters and all actions really entertaining.
We get enough background-story to have depth behind our MCs. They both come from extraordinary backgrounds and have some special circumstances as well as quite a bit of baggage to carry. Their chance meeting ignited a spark neither of them expected. Working together doesn’t come easy but the mutual attraction and unforeseen special bond between Kyle and Sebastian help them along the way.
Our MCs share some explosive chemistry and their sex scenes are both sensual and sizzling hot. I could definitely feel their connection and their emotions were palpable. Their deepening feelings woven into the sequence of actions gave a good balance to the plot-line.
If you like lots of action, excitement and hot sex this is a great read for you. Enjoy.
