It’s not every day that a total stranger asks Tag if he’s…ahem…well endowed. Of course, he’s not going to say no. When he’s offered a life-changing amount of money to go to a party, he’s not going to say no to that either, even though he suspects sex will be involved. But sense prevails and Tag decides to stick to his principles and not go, except things take an alarming turn. Suddenly, he can’t say no. Not if he wants to see another day.
Tell no one. Trust no one. The unbreakable rules that keep Delaney alive. He’s got a role to play at this so-called party, but the cheeky upstart who’s supposed to be part of his cover, seems to be going out of his way to be as aggravating as possible. When Delaney finally registers that unlike the rest of the entertainment, Tag isn’t a willing participant, they join forces and set in motion a chain of events that leads to them both running for their lives.
Tag might be one of the most irritating guys Delaney has ever met, but his resolute cheerfulness and bravery begin to have an unexpected effect. Tag worms his way through Delaney’s defences and keeping him safe now seems the most important job Delaney’s ever had. Suddenly the operative who’s never trusted anyone, finds himself letting Tag into his heart. And wishing for a future that can never be.
I’ve read, I don’t know, 6-ish books by this author? Some funny and light hearted, some a big angsty. But nothing like this.
Tag is alone in the world, just trying to make ends meet and live his life. So when he is offered 1000 pounds to attend a party, he couldn’t resist. He should have.
Tag is coerced into the middle of shady men trying to find a missing Saudi prince. He is “bought” at a party by Delaney, the man heading up the search. But there are a lot of players, a lot of illegal happenings and a lot of sketchy situations.
Tag and Delaney end up hiding out together after Tag runs from the party. He is now on the radar of the people who threw the party and they are mad.
From London, to Wales, to Scotland. Tag and Delaney are trying to put together all of the puzzle pieces to find out who is behind what and to ultimately find this Saudi prince.
Tag had a bit of that Jonty vibe (character from previous books, totally unrelated to this book) without being over the top. But he has a bit of that same broken spirit. He was betrayed when he was younger and wants someone to love him.
Delaney is the typical gun for hire spy with no connections because that would leave him vulnerable. But of course he can’t really resist Tag.
The story was exciting and kept me turning the pages. It wasn’t a whodunit because we already know who is doing what. But what ultimately brings them all down had me like omg.
Tag’s background story broke my heart. Ugh. He really had some grit to keep going. Getting wrapped up with Delaney definitely helped.
Another great epilogue which was so satisfying and wrapped everything up with a nice bow.
It was a good story, interesting characters, a couple of ohmygods. I liked it a lot.
