  • 4.5 stars- Another exciting, suspense-filled case

    The Bad Behavior series is shaping up to be really fantastic. Suspicious Behavior is the second book in the series, and while it’s a whole new case and there’s enough summarization of past events that enable it to stand on its own, it’s definitely one that’s better to read in order. The nuances between the heroes, interactions with secondary characters, and the continued secondary plot lines would likely leave readers new to the series in the dark. Once again this romantic suspense concentrates more on solving the crime versus the developing relationship between Andreas and Darren. That said, now that the men are officially together, the reader gets a lot more glimpses into their growing feelings and the ridiculously strong emotional chemistry between these two. Unfortunately, we don’t get much in the way of the physical aspects of the relationship. Although the lack of physical intimacy is explained with the stresses caused by the active case, personal injuries and recoveries, and familial obligations- I can’t help but wish we get a payoff in the third book. Case wise, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The action scenes moved quickly and kept me in suspense. There were also considerable differences from the previous book. This is definitely not a formulaic crime/suspense series. It had a different pace and timeline, with a lot more details regarding Andreas and Darren building their case and scrambling to stop further crimes. I also liked how the fallout from the first book affected the case in Suspicious Behavior. It lent a cohesiveness to the story arc without relying on a cliffhanger. While I’m still left wanting in the romance portion of this series, I really do enjoy the characters, writing, banter, and crime-solving. I loved that the reader gets a bit of a different focus and sees different sides to Andreas and Darren, delivering some of the things I missed in the first book. I think fans of law enforcement procedurals and suspense books will appreciate this series and I’m eager to see what challenges book three will present to Andreas and Darren. Judging from the authors’ teasers, it will be no less exciting than the first two book of the series. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*

  • This series just keeps getting better...

    It's time for a little game of catch me if you can...murder style... Corliss and Ruffner somehow survived the events of 'Risky Behavior' but at what price? Detective Darren Corliss is barely holding himself together between the injuries he suffered in their last case, going back to work at a precinct that's not only less than friendly but views him and his partner Andreas Ruffner as villains for bringing down enough dirty cops and politicians to cause a staffing crisis at several precincts and city hall. Darren's also got a brother who's suffering from early onset Alzheimer's which has left him with his own fears about whether or not he'll share his brothers condition. Along with a lot of Darren's worries. Andreas has a few of his own but he seems to be holding it together a little better. But both men would definitely agree that what they need is to get back to work...or at least that's what they thought until they were handed some cold cases...cold cases that at first glance only had one connection...the killer. However, once they start to find the connections it quickly becomes clear that there's a clock ticking. One that they have to beat if they want to stop another murder from happening. The mystery here wasn't really the who did it, I actually figured that part out fairly quickly it was all about the how and why of things. While I really enjoyed the mystery, it was the relationship development between Darren and Andreas that happened in this book that I really loved about the most. Admittedly there wasn't a lot of sex in this story and that's ok because there was a lot going on and honestly in real life chances are pretty good that there really wouldn't be much going on in the romance department between the serial killer case, Andreas's kids, Darren's brother, recovering from injuries and the abuse they're being exposed to from their fellow officers, if they'd been having sex like bunnies I'd have thought I was reading a fantasy story. I found that the relationship growth was shown in the emotional exchanges and immediate unquestioning support that Darren and Andreas gave to each other...when Darren was there to help Andreas deal with his ex and her problems and I maybe melted a little over Darren's internal and sometimes external gushing about Andreas with his kids and there was Andreas's support of Darren as he dealt with his brother combined with their support of each other as partners at work...there was no hesitation or questioning of whether or not they had each other's backs it was just a done deal. Book #1 Risky Behavior laid the ground work for this series and the relationship between these two men as they dealt with corruption and found their way together as partners both on and off duty and now with book #2 Suspicious Behavior we're given more action and a closer look at Darren and Andreas as they deal with life as a team both on a personal and professional level. I was totally hooked on this series with the first book and this one has not changed that decision even slightly...except for the fact that if anything I'm even more anxious to get my hands on the next book. I just read the blurb and holy hell, it's going to be good...seriously good. I love a good steamy romance story as much as the next person but what I love even more is a story with substance...characters with depth who grow, a plot that I can follow but that also challenges me and most of all one that leaves me wanting more. 'Suspicious Behavior' does all this and then some.
