Book: A Heart’s Desire
Author: Kris Michaels
Genre: M/M FBI Romance
Agent McKenzie is nobody’s ‘yes’ boy and has the letters of reprimand to prove it. He smells the stink of political maneuvering in this case and he can see the handwriting on the wall. Hell, the words are three feet high and written in crayon. Someone in his own agency wants a target on Liam Mercier’s back but McKenzie would be damned if he’d put one there. The damaged man currently in his custody needs his protection, not manipulation. That’s why he’d agreed to use a safe house that was off the grid. Throwing away his rarely used FBI procedure book had nothing to do with the protective urges he felt around Liam. Nope, not a damn thing to do with heavy doses of desire, or spikes of lust. He was just doing his job, after all, he has a killer to catch and a victim to keep alive. Protecting his best bet of taking that sick bastard down was his civic duty.
Forced to face the nightmares of his past or lose his pension, Liam Mercier did the only thing he could do. He walked back into his personal hell. The man assigned to protect him is everything Liam wanted and needed—four years ago. Leaving the small island of sanity he’d been existing on could cost him everything. But being hunted by a genius, sadistic killer without the protection of the sexy, intense, agent was a guaranteed death sentence. Fate had dictated Liam’s course four years ago. The only thing he questioned was when his killer going to finish his work.

Steele McKenzie has a serial killer on the loose and an FBI Task Force that needs to catch him quickly. With his last victim’s help, ex-FBI agent Liam Mercier, they are up against the clock to stop Stuart Miller from taking another man. But is Liam so damaged that this will destroy his fragile soul or will the FBI end up using him as bait? Not to mention all of the sparks flying between Steele and Liam…will Steele be able to stand the risk of losing him?
“My team isn’t like your old team. None of us will let you down, but I am the team lead for this task force. I. Won’t. Abandon. You.”
Well, we definitely have some suspense going on as the FBI tries to figure out Stuart’s next move. I really do enjoy a good law enforcement story and this one did keep me guessing. There was some insta-love with Liam and Steele but I’m not opposed to a little romance. The chemistry between the two could be pretty hot when Steele was “protecting” him. I am pretty excited that there appears to be a set up for other characters to have their own stories. Win-win!
If you are looking for some alpha cops, then this would be a good story for you. The guys are tough and not afraid to show their feelings for other guys. That always puts a smile in my heart and happiness in my soul.
