Five Stars - Reviews by Jessewave
Josh Lanyon is truly gifted and I Spy Something Bloody is a winner. This book was absolutely a must read. Without a doubt, whatever comes next by Josh Lanyon is definitely not to be missed. I can not wait to see and read whatever suspenseful and erotic tale comes down the pike.
Kimberly Spinney, Sensual Erotic Romance and Erotica
While at times discouragingly oppressive, especially in the beginning, which deepened the emotional impact of Mark and Stephen's story, I found this a very beautifully written love story of two men who had once loved, and of two men who still loved, but had to rediscover and renew their love. But before Stephen's broken trust and bitterness can subside into understanding and forgiveness, the dark clouds of Mark's recent past, which have been ominously looming in the background, threaten a violent end. And as Mark and Stephen find themselves fighting for their lives as they face a deadly enemy, the desperate circumstances finally force them to face their true feelings for each other.
Highly recommended - Angus Devotee Reviews
This was my first experience reading Josh Lanyon’s work so I feel like I just discovered something great. Bring on more stories like this and I will be first in that line! From the title I thought I would be reading a plot driven story filled with death, but wasn’t, I was pleasantly surprised when the story turned out to be more character driven. It can be difficult to read a first person narrative such as this one, but Lanyon makes it easy for us. Also, Mr. Lanyon may tell this story from Mark’s point of view but he does an excellent job of characterizing Stephen as well, allowing for us to get to know both characters equally. This is the kind of story you find yourself thinking about long after the last word is read!
April, Fallen Angels Review
Beautiful, poignant and not a dry eye in the house. I suggest you stampede your way down that store isle and get reading now. Gush, much? heh.
Sharrow, Rain on the Roof
Josh Lanyon tells this tale with a sure hand; the deck is stacked against our protagonist and at times you wonder if he even deserves to get back with his ex-lover. The characters seem real, the emotions run high, and the pace is compelling. The writing is top notch. Enjoy this roller coaster ride!
