Review: Warrior’s Cross by Madeleine Urban, Abigail Roux

Cameron Jacobs is an open book. He considers himself a common waiter with normal friends, boring hobbies, harmless dogs, and nothing even resembling a secret... except a crush on a tall, dark, devastatingly handsome man who dines alone at his restaurant on Tuesday nights. All it takes is one passionate night with Julian Cross to turn Cameron’s world on its head.

Julian's love and devotion are all Cameron could have hoped for and more. But when his ordinary life meets and clashes with Julian's extraordinary lifestyle, Cameron discovers that trust and fear can go hand in hand, and love is just a step away from danger.

I loved this book! Warrior’s Cross is an amazing read that I recommend to anyone who loves a good male male romantic suspense. Julian and Cameron make a great couple that leave you constantly wondering how they are going to make their relationship work. The moment Julian steps on to the page he is all dark and mysterious. He keeps the mystery rocking. His intrigue kept me from putting the book down. Julian will answer a question and make you ask more. I loved that about his character. And the questions, Julian keeps you the reader asking them just as he does Cameron. I loved that element of this read.

Cameron is just absolutely adorable. He is a waiter who looks forward to a regular customer coming in every week. This particular customer has become a crush and the star of all his fantasies. The chance to take a walk with him one night after work is too good to pass up. Cameron soon finds himself in a quasi relationship with the mysterious Julian. There are more unknowns in the relationship than there are knowns and it puts a strain in the happiness they found in the unexpected. This is where it becomes heartbreaking. Cameron knows he can’t know certain things about Julian’s life. Julian knows he can’t tell Cameron much about what he does when they are not together.

I was told by a few readers to read this book before Armed and Dangerous. So if you’re a follower of the Cut and Run series you may also want to do that. As for working as a stand alone Warrior’s Cross does that just fine. I am extremely curious how Cameron and Julian will play into Ty and Zane’s world.

    Glad you loved it, Vanessa! I like these guys just as much as Ty and Zane and its a hoot when the four of them are in a story together.

    It his was the first Abi book I read and I LOVED it! Their relationship dynamic is one of my favorites. They are a lot of fun in A&D. Just gives me the warm and fuzzies thinking about them 🙂
