Every Move He Makes - Barbara Elsborg

The premise of this book reminded me a lot of the Chimera Affair and also of Close Protection; and I five-starred the face off of those books. So naturally I was super keen to read this one. And I hate to say it, but I'm kinda disappointed. It just fell a bit flat for me. My feeling is that the MCs lacked chemistry, their relationship felt a bit forced and around the 85% marked it kind of careened into sappytown. The action bits were fun, and seriously, who doesn't love a good secret-agent romp? Ultimately, though, it wasn't enough to keep me riveted.

On an unrelated note; why do all the guys on M/M covers look like complete douchebags?
