A Wild Cards Novel
In crime, like in love, there can be no half measures….
Fashion model Zane Stryker needs money—badly. At almost thirty, his glory days are behind him, and he needs capital to start over. When his luggage is switched with a bag containing contraband he’s forced to deliver, it’s either the worst thing that’s ever happened to him… or the best.
Enter Sebastian Gigoni, formerly of the British Special Forces, who has to decide just where Zane’s loyalty lies and why. Sizzling attraction erupts between them, but that doesn’t mean they can trust each other. They double down in a race for their lives—and their love—but are their purposes at odds? As they struggle to reconcile their goals, their consciences, and the needs of their hearts, one thing is clear—they must go all in or give up altogether.
This is the latest installment to the Dreamspun Desires. This is part of the Wild Cards group and gives us Zane and Sebastian’s story.
The books in the Dreamspun series are formulaic, however, this one has just enough action and excitement to keep your interest. The characters are engaging and the storyline and plot are decent.
Also, this book, like the others in this series, has a low heat rating but again, the action aspect added a little excitement to the storyline so it was okay.
In all, I think this book turned out okay. I would have liked to have seen the author step outside of what I refer to as the ‘Dreamspun Formula’ a bit more with this story; the ‘wow’ factor wasn’t there. Even though this was the case, this wasn’t a bad read at all.
