Mateo Esposito loves his job. Hired assassin for the U.S. Government, he takes lives and he kicks ass with no mercy. When a job lands in his lap that’s just not quite right, Mateo finds himself questioning for the first time in his career. Who would have known he’d be undone by a purple hippo…
Riley Flynn is CEO of Flynn Electronics. Deep in his closet, Riley wonders what it would feel like to be with a man. When his path crosses with Mateo’s, their lives will never be the same.
Because Riley is Mateo’s next target…
Riley looked into those hazel eyes and almost sighed. An assassin sure, but a caring one nonetheless.
No wonder, as Riley is the most beautiful, innocent, open, cheerful, and irresistible man he has ever met.
Mateo picked Riley’s hand up gently, and kissed his fingertip. Riley moaned softly and nestled into Mateo’s side. Crap, cuddling. Warmth from Riley settled into Mateo’s bones and he closed his eyes.
When a story provides high quality erotica, great plot, characterization and writing style, that’s the best imaginable. Well, A Marked Man excels in erotica, is mediocre in plot and in character delineation, and unrefined in writing style.
Its deficiencies are forgivable, as the erotica completely captures your attention. It is exactly like it should be: steamy, dirty, and affectionate. I loved it! As Mateo and Riley never got tired of each other, I never got tired of reading about them.
He looked at Riley’s lips, slightly parted, waiting to be licked and played with. Groaning, Mateo took Riley’s mouth again. God, he’d never wanted to kiss anyone, and now he couldn’t stop.
I hope the writing style improves in the following installments, and the erotica remains the same high-standard. A Marked Man is a very promising start of the series.
Oh, and I really enjoyed the secondary characters…
Josh sighed and leaned back on his elbows. “God, I hope you know what you’re doing Mat. When you find love, you have to hold onto it and never let go.”
Mateo arched a brow. “Titanic?”
“Fuck you.” Josh smacked Mateo. “My Mom said that.”
“I like her.” Mateo sat back on the dirt. “She always makes me cookies.”
