WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

I Spy Something Wicked is a short read that packs a punch. It is a story about choices, chances, and taking a gamble on something - even if you don't think you deserve it. A very good read.

This short story is rife with drama, tension and angst, but itís also a story of love and romance. Mark has finally settled into a life that he really enjoys, especially since heís with Stephen. But when a voice from his past approaches him heís torn. Watching as he struggles to make the decision to do not only whatís right, but what he really wants is hard; I really felt for him as he fought between loyalty and love. It hurt that he felt so alone, so divided. It's a wonderful follow-up story to I Spy Something Bloody; if youíve read the first, youíll want to catch up with Mark and Stephen. This book is firmly in my re-read pile and will be one that Iíll enjoy reading over and over again.

I'm not usually a fan of books written in the first person, but in this case it really works. We get to see directly how one minute Mark is in favour of taking the assignment, then the next how he knows he can't. Truly it's not an easy decision for him, and expertly Lanyon lets us feel every nuance of Mark's thought processes, helped along as they often are by quotations from Dickens. Mark is loyal. But whose loyalties weigh the heaviest? His lover's or his ex-employers? You'll have to buy the story to find out.
British Bulldog for Rainbow Reviews
As always, Josh Lanyon's books are about the characters. Mark has a difficult time prioritizing and dealing with old allegiances that conflict with his love for Stephen. A sequel has the added burden of trying to live up to the original story, however, I can truthfully say that I Spy Something Wicked did that and more because it managed to bring Mark and Stephen full circle. All of the issues from ISSB are out in the open in this new book and the wounds are just as fresh as if it were yesterday, compounded by the fact that this time they can't afford to leave anything unresolved. There is an added dimension in ISSW - I think Mr. Lanyon is getting daring in his love and sex scenes between his characters -- in I Spy Something Wicked the sex has definitely moved into the hot zone.
Wave for Jessewave Reviews
This is a great short sequel to the first book and shouldn't be read alone. For those that always wanted to revisit Mark and Stephan, they will love this short story. Although it's pretty emotional, the deft handling will have you happily along for the ride.

Although this is a quick read, it is packed with an emotional level you don't get in many full-length novels and I highly recommend it.
