Eagle Grip by Max Walker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Isaac Hawk’s life wasn’t going as planned. He was living in a crummy apartment with a future career that left him feeling empty inside and a love life that had him feeling even emptier. On a whim, he decides to drop out of the police academy so that he can at least try and fix one aspect of his crumbling future. The only problem with his rash decision? A negative balance in his bank account and no way to pay for rent.
Diego Cruz seemed to have things set. He was on his way to Rome so he could bring home an Olympic gold medal in gymnastics. His mind and body were honed in and focused on that one goal. He was going to make all the sacrifices in his life mean something by competing and coming out on top. He was determined to find a reason to move past the deep regret of leaving Isaac the way he had all those years ago.
When Isaac reluctantly accepts a job working as security for the American gymnastics team, he knew his path would cross with Diego’s. What he wasn’t expecting was the flood of emotions that would overpower the both of them after their chance encounter. Things are made more complicated by the obsessive behavior on display from Diego’s ex-boyfriend.
Isaac and Diego will each have to face their past and realize that sometimes you have to hold on to those second chances with an eagle grip.
EAGLE GRIP is a hot and steamy, gay romance novel with no cliffhangers. It is the third book in The Guardian series but can be read as a standalone.
This is the first novel in the series I call “the next generation”. This book is about Adrian and Tristan’s son Isaac.
A lot of time flew by and the charming little boy grew into a sexy man. The plot is a bit unique with the sports theme but no football or baseball this time, no, with competiting in the Olympics and with Diego being an athelete. Really good written, a bit “sci-fi” with the new developments in the way of transport (cars which drive automatically).
The chemistry between the guys was palpable, their bond was made in young years, the seperation devastated both… it is hard to read what Isaac had go through. You also can’t understand why Diego is hesitating and break up… And when you read the first pages of the first chapter you can be a bit angry about him – I was for a few moments.
What I really liked about the book was the description of the athletic aspect, the movements were well described and you could really see the scenes before you. Also it must be very fascinating to watch this in real.
Hot and steamy is the reunion, something neither Isaac nor Diego expected. Of course no Max Walker book without a happy end so it was clear both find a way to be happy in the end.
There was again a thrilling, solving part, a danger, but again this was the minor focus.
I really enjoyed the appearances of Tristan and Adrian also the appreance of Colton, the cousin of Isaac and son of Sean and Connor from book 2, First Down
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Fire Flow by Max Walker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
*~~*ARC kindly provided by the author to me in exchange for an honest review *~~*
Sexy firefighter, Colton Drake, has everything going for him. From a prize-winning smile to a washboard set of abs, all mixed together with a playful sense of humor. He wasn’t the type to have one-night stands, but he knew he wouldn’t have trouble finding them. So why was he having such a terrible time finding someone to spend his life with?
Well, until he meets the man that changes everything.
Mason Bleu, a fire investigator, is moving back to Los Angeles after getting a job offer he couldn’t refuse. Even though the city held some terribly painful memories, Mason thinks everything will be fine. It felt like a second shot.
Then, his entire world is rocked the moment his eyes land on Colton’s. Their connection is immediate and that terrifies Mason. To top things off, he’s thrown into a case involving a serial arsonist terrorizing the community.
Colton and Mason are on a path that could end either in paradise or in a nightmare. Things only heat up further when the arsonist sets his sights on one of them.
Can they make it through the fire or will they be turned to ashes?
FIRE FLOW is a hot and steamy, gay romance novel with no cliffhangers. It is the fourth book in The Guardian series but can be read as a standalone.
So damn hot and the best of all books. ❤
Again it is one of the books I would call “the next generation”, this time it’s all about Colton, Sean and Connor’s son.
I really love the story about Colton as a firefighter, so damn sexy and captivating. :3 I also was captured right form the start by Colton’s charme, his humor and… wow, just wow, he is a keeper and has a blessed heart. :3
I had also my fun with Mason, the fire investigator, the guy who is charming and witty but underneath with an unsecurity… Poor guy, he had my heart. :3
Also did I LOVE the chemistry between the two. So fitting, so awesome, so good. :3 Steamy sex scenes, hot emotions, palpable in every part of the story.
I don’t know why this hit so more home than the other stories maybe it was the better – best in the whole series – development, the better description and emotional connection to the character, also the drama. Again there was a “mystery case” which was to solve but this time it was peppered with danger and with a tragedy… It really blow my heart away and I was shocked…
5 ouf of 5 stars. The best book of the series and you can read it as a stand alone like every book of it but you better read the other too. 🙂
I had a great time with all the books in the series and will definitely read other books by the author. 🙂
