“Coyote Crossing” by James Buchanan
Ricardo Franco is a Border Patrol
agent. Agustín Romero-Price is a coyote, and he escorts
immigrants across the border. Rick is in the desert with his
team keeping a group from making it across the border when
he sees Augi. He and Augi go way back. Rick wants to help
him change his ways before he gets hurt, or worse. There is
a lot Rick doesn’t know about Augi though.
“Coyote Crossing” has action, romance
and an engaging storyline. Augi is irresistible;he’s sweet
and sexy. Rick is tough and yet he has a vulnerable side
too. The flashback to when Augi and Rick are teens is
incredibly moving. Then there’s the twist at the end.
“Coyote Crossing” is a terrific story.
“In A Dark Wood” by Josh Lanyon
Tim has a little too much to drink at
his friend Rob’s dinner party, so when Rob begs him to tell
the story of the skull house in New Jersey, he does. When
Tim and a friend were kids, they got lost in the woods and
stumbled upon a dilapidated house. Detective Luke O’Brien is
at the party too, and before Tim knows it, he’s back in the
woods, this time with Luke, searching for the house. It’s
one camping trip they’ll never forget. Tim has to face a few
demons but it could be the start of a very beautiful
friendship, if they can get out alive.
“In A Dark Wood” is great! Luke is an
all around great guy and my heart went out to Tim. Tim and
Luke are really good together and not just because the sex
is so hot! By the end of “In A Dark Wood”, I was sitting on
the edge of my seat wide eyed with anticipation. The
suspense was killing me! It’s a great scary story.
“Gamble Everything” by L. Picaro
Adam Coventry is the officer responding
to Marc Doans’ call for help. Marc’s car has been shot at
and he fears for his life. After filling out the paperwork
at the station, Adam follows Marc home to make sure it’s
safe. Once there, Marc gets more than protection from Adam.
Trouble seems to be following Marc, though, and Adam is
becoming involved in more ways than one.
“Gamble Everything” is an action-packed
and dramatic story. I liked Marc a lot; he’s very sexy. And
Adam is definitely one of the good guys, in every way. Marc
is a fantasy come to life for Adam. I love how the fantasy
becomes so much more though it’s really nice.
Arresting Developments has three edgy and
intense stories. Action and a great romance make up “Coyote
Crossing”. “In A Dark Wood” is a chilling tale, but one with
a lot of heart too, and “Gamble Everything” is hot and sweet
with a little danger mixed in. I’m looking forward to
reading these stories again!
