Review: The Talented Mr. Rivers (End of the Line #2) by HelenKay Dimon

HelenKay Dimon’s suspenseful, provocative series of double agents and dark desire continues with a novel featuring two men bound by a dangerous job—and by the cravings they feel for each other.

As the son of an international crime lord, Will Rivers only inherited one thing after his father died: trouble. The Pentasus organization deals in kidnapping and murder, and Will wants no part of the power grab that’s tearing leadership apart. But the only way he’ll be able to escape is with some help from his former bodyguard, Hunter Cain, whose sculpted body and brooding looks keep Will awake at night. Somehow, Hunter has resisted the tension between them . . . until, suddenly, he gives in.

As a German intelligence officer working deep undercover, Hunter has a very good reason to keep Will in the dark about his identity and his intentions. Although the sex is hot, Hunter’s true feelings are a growing liability. Now the only way to save Will from his old life is to push him deeper into danger. But when two strong men are each determined to protect the other, the heat isn’t just combustible—it’s a firestorm.

When The Talented Mr, Rivers became available to review it was a no-brainer for me : I had to read it.  In this second book of the End Of The Line series, we are now following Hunter Cain and Will Rivers. Even though this book is starting with the ending scene of the first book, it can be read as a standalone.  But do you a favor, read both of the books, you will have twice the fun.

All that I loved in the first book (Mr. and Mr. Smith) is back in there with a little bonus: a lot of steamy scenes.  This is a story that is going full throttle with a lot of action scenes and some twisted villains. Trust is at the heart of this book.  How can we know who we can trust and are we willing to open our heart and see what can happen?  Those are the questions that are explored throughout this story.

Hunter Cain is not an emotional man.  He is working for the German intelligence Agency (BN) and always followed the rules.  He has a job to do and it is to  make sure that Pentasus won’t be able to continue its criminal endeavors.  Pentasus is a family business and its actions are reaching far into the criminal world.  The Rivers were battling together to know who will be the new boss of Pentasus.  With Stacia’s death, that is only leaving Peter and Will in the course.  Will Rivers is saying that he does not want anything to do with the family business.  Can he be trusted? That is the question that is always on Hunter main.  There is an astounding physical attraction between him and Will, and since Hunter is working undercover he won’t give him into any kind of relationship. Until he did.  Then the chemistry between Hunter and Will became explosive and they could not get enough of one another.  Both knows that the other is hiding something and they are not sure if they can trust each other.  To make it worst, CIA became involved as well and Hunter needs to play his game very carefully.

Will Rivers is looking a little nerdy.  We would assume that all the members of the Rivers family are rough and tough.  Will is the exception, he is sweet and well mannered.  This is also one of those characters that have a lot of tricks under their belt.  He is immensely skilled with a firearm and is able to pull out some lies that would fool anyone.  The question is, will he use his skills to help gain control of the family business or to help Peter?

What a treat it was to have Fischer and Zachary back into that book. It was like having a couple of old buddies back with me and that was a real pleasure to welcome them back.  We read about Seth in Mr. and Mr. Smith, but this time, he is shining as a supporting character.  I was glad to get to know him a little better.  I also really liked the question that was unanswered about him in the Talented Mr. Rivers.  It is leaving me with a hope that he might be featured in a future book in this series (I sure pray that HelenKay Dimon will choose to continue this amazing adventure).

I definitely recommend this book, it is a must read for anyone that likes some steamy M/M scenes and some great action!
