We Met in Death by K.A. Merikan 2*
BLURB: “This is not the night you die.”
After years of working for a loan shark, Robert is done with blood and violence. All he has to show for it is a bag of money and a lifetime of regrets. There’s no other way out of his line of work than in a body bag.
So Robert decides to die.
But on the night he chooses to seal his own fate, destiny offers him a chance at redemption. When Robert saves a handsome young escort from a terrible death, he has no idea he is setting in motion much more than one last attempt at proving that inside the hardened shell, he is a decent human being.
Charming, quick-witted, and full of smiles, Nathan is all Robert could dream of. He’s also ready to fall into the arms of his gruff protector. Robert, on the other hand, has never been with a man and will first need to fight his own demons if he is to accept that his whole being wants to make Nathan his.
With his former boss hunting them both, time is ticking, and Robert might just not get the chance to decide before it’s too late. More importantly though, Robert will stop at nothing to protect the man who’s made him feel alive again, the man who is the only thing between him and the abyss.
“I never had to think much about death before, but I did yesterday. I thought I would die. In a hole. Covered with dirt. Suffocate underground.
But then you saved me.”
My Review: I received a free copy for reviewing. I was seriously disappointed that I didn't like the book. Everything I've read by these authors in the past has been to my taste and the blurb sounded really interesting. Unfortunately I ended up not liking either of the main characters or the story. Given the number of high ratings the book has received and the fact it took me forever to finally read it finished I'd say the fault is most likey on my side rather than the book itself. This doesn't mean I will forego future books because one bad story isn't enough to put me off reading more by these ladies, in fact I can't wait.
