Blurb: Special Agent Hugh Cranford, better known as Sport, is conducting an off-the-record investigation. He’s after Danny O’Sullivan, a spy rumored to have assisted in the ambush of Sport’s former SEAL team. Danny claims he and Sport are on the same side, and the real traitor is the man Sport is working for. But Danny is a master manipulator. He’s also the most seductive man Sport has ever met. Sport can’t help being attracted to him, but that doesn’t mean he’s willing to trust him.
In his quest to bring down a few highly-placed traitors in the US government, Danny O’Sullivan has been keeping tabs on Sport. When Sport comes looking for him, Danny decides to bring Sport in on his secret mission and into his bed. Sport may not trust Danny, but he wants him. As the two men risk their lives to complete Danny’s mission, they discover neither is as strong as they like to pretend.
Silvia Violet continues to impress me. Her writing keeps improving and improving, and this is a very tight, hot, hot read. I didn’t read the first book, you don’t need to, but I am going to. It looks to be a great series.
In Unexpected Trust, Sport is called in on a suspicious assignment to gather intel from Danny O’Sullivan. Danny supposedly helped cause the death of some of Sport’s SEAL team, and it is up to Sport to exonerate him or take him out.
From the first moment the two meet, sparks fly. They are two very alpha males, but both have some hidden desires only the other can really tap into, and the heat index is off the charts.
The sex in here is plentiful but doesn’t overwhelm the story, and it really adds to the complexity of their relationship and is cathartic in a way.
I liked the secondary characters (Addy and J), who were focused on in book 1 ,and I am guessing we will see more of Simon in book 3.
There was just enough military/CIA/FBI jargon to be realistic but not bog down the story.
This is a fast read, gripping, and moves right along. It has some very sweet spots and lots of hot sex.
I recommend it highly.
Overall Impression: I loved it!
