SOME MATCHES SPARK AN INFERNO
Eirik Haldurson is a hitman. Kidnapped at age five and cruelly trained by his captor, he is today one of the most sought-after contract killers alive. Emotional distance from his targets, brutally beaten into him until it became second nature, is now the only way he can function. Lately though, that distance has started to elude him.
And when a Colombian drug cartel contracts Eirik to take out ex-soldier-turned-vigilante, Matt Moreno, distance is suddenly as close as heat to fire. And all hell breaks loose.
This book is part of CRIMINAL DELIGHTS. Each novel can be read as a standalone and contains a dark M/M romance.
Warning: These books are for adult readers who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurry. High heat, twisted and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted.
Dynamic characters with a little sweet, a lot of sexy, and a heckofa lot of anticipation.
This was lighter on the dark romance part for the series, but I didn’t even care. Match Grade by G.B. Gordon gives us two all-too-human men that you’re guaranteed to fall head-over-heels for.
Eirik is an assassin who is tired of it all and experiencing moments where he blacks out during missions. So how does he get entangled in one more kill? But with an powerful enemy on Eirik’s back he doesn’t have much choice
Then he meets his target, Matt Moreno, and Eirik hesitates. Suddenly, the consequences are all too real.
I adored both of these men. Eirik has the silent, distanced demeanor, but he has so many layers. He kept surprising me. Matt Moreno, on the other hand, has so much charisma I couldn’t even take it! I love a good inner conflict, and this story has it in spades. The second half has a nice extra push plot-wise but for the most part? This was a character-driven romance at its finest. And there are some declarations in here too, ya’ll…downright romantic. The surprise of that just made the pages blur because I was so invested, and I just needed to know what happens next!
The quotes from Sun Tzu were absolutely perfect too! Match Grade matches suspense with romance and blends it into a story that’s not to be missed.
