The Talented Mr. Rivers by HelenKay Dimon

HelenKay Dimon’s suspenseful, provocative series of double agents and dark desire continues with a novel featuring two men bound by a dangerous job—and by the cravings they feel for each other. 

As the son of an international crime lord, Will Rivers only inherited one thing after his father died: trouble. The Pentasus organization deals in kidnapping and murder, and Will wants no part of the power grab that’s tearing leadership apart. But the only way he’ll be able to escape is with some help from his former bodyguard, Hunter Cain, whose sculpted body and brooding looks keep Will awake at night. Somehow, Hunter has resisted the tension between them . . . until, suddenly, he gives in. 

 As a German intelligence officer working deep undercover, Hunter has a very good reason to keep Will in the dark about his identity and his intentions. Although the sex is hot, Hunter’s true feelings are a growing liability. Now the only way to save Will from his old life is to push him deeper into danger. But when two strong men are each determined to protect the other, the heat isn’t just combustible—it’s a firestorm.

Elizabeth's Review

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Review Copy Provided by publisher via Net Galley

The Talented Mr. Rivers follows characters (Hunter and Will) introduced in a previous book. The story picks up shortly after the conclusion of Mr & Mr Smith.
I enjoyed the story presented here, but struggled a little bit with Hunter's character. The presentation of his character here didn't fully jive with how he was portrayed previously and there wasn't really enough revealed to make the jump and change fully believable.
Romance, intrigue, humor, and sexy time all make for an entertaining read. I think I would have liked Hunter better had I not met him in the previous book. Will was fun and interesting to get to know.
While technically a stand alone effort, I personally think reading the books in order would help make this effort more enjoyable.
