    Awesome

    Loved, loved, loved!! This is a super sexy M/M romance that once I started reading I couldn't put down. It's filled with action, suspense, and some seriously sexy moments between Seth and Rick. Rick is in Germany to look into the sudden death of the previous Consulate, Seth is there to protect Rick. An assignment he's not originally too thrilled with but once he sees who exactly he's babysitting Seth is all in! Both these characters are swoon-worthy and the excitement of the story makes this a book you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it.

    4.5 stars- Rapid fire storyline, great characters

    Guarding Mr. Fine is a law-enforcement romance that offers a good dose of action and intrigue throughout the storyline. This is the third book in the Tough Love series but can be read as a standalone. I enjoyed this one a little more than the others in the series because I immediately liked Seth and Rick. Both men have big personalities while being personable and added a lot of energy to the story. Though they work within the same government security branch, Seth and Rick are very different. Their contrasting personalities kept things interesting and added internal conflicts. Those interactions gave the reader insight into the individuals, their work relationships, and how they functioned as a couple. Besides the characters, the dialogue really stood out to me. It made the story and relationship come alive. Better yet, the banter between characters was fun and witty, adding more depth to their personalities. The writing throughout the book was smooth with enough details to get a good grasp of the scene and action sequences. The pace stayed relatively fast, fitting with the urgency of uncovering the criminal ring operating within the consulate. I did wish there had been a bit more suspense throughout the book. Much like the others in the series, things are laid out clearly and there are no significant surprises with the relationship or criminal activity. However, the conflicts were clear and the resolutions believable and thorough. The romance itself was fast-burning. Initiating from a hook-up, there is a lot of lust up front. For a good portion of the book I missed seeing the characters connect outside of the physical attraction and respect for the other’s proficiency at their job. I was relieved when things are hashed out between the characters toward the end. Rick forces a conversation about their future, and both men explore their feelings for one another, subsequently clueing the reader into the depth of their attraction. For fans of law enforcement romances, this series is a good choice. It’s fast-paced but believable and detailed enough to envision the scenes. While I wished there was suspense and chemistry from the outset, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. This author’s characters reliably balance strong personalities with intelligence and passion, and I will certainly read more from her in the future. *ARC received from Netgalley, reviewed for Alpha Book Club*

    Completely Compelling!!!

    This is my first book by HelenKay Dimon and I must say I am quite impressed. The plot is spectacular, full of intrigue, mystery, and espionage, and the characters are complex, well developed and real. They really draw you right into the story and you just can't help but become invested in their lives. This book hooked me from the start and kept me riveted to the very last page. The pace is steady and never boring. Overall, I found the book to be provocative and gripping and romantic and absorbing and sexy and completely compelling. If you love romantic thrillers, this is the book for you! *I was given an advanced copy of this book via NetGalley and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own.

    Wow, this was a great book. Hot and steamy!

    I've read all of the books in this series and loved them but you don't need to have read the others to enjoy this one. All of the books stand alone and can be read in any order. Until I began reading this series I hadn't read any M/M stories that were so suspenseful or thrilling. Guarding Mr. Fine starts off with the sexy stuff pretty quickly but doesn’t lack suspense or thrills later. Seth Lang is on his way to an assignment to "babysit" a diplomat; something that he certainly isn't looking forward to. He has a hot, fast hook up with a guy in a bar and you can probably guess who that turns out to be. Rick Fine knows how stupid he is to ditch his protection and hook up with a stranger but he just couldn't resist the fine specimen that had both male and female heads turning. This book had my heart pounding more than just a few times and as much for the sexy time as it did for the thrilling suspense. When Seth discovers his assignment it to guard the man he hooked up with a few days before they officially meet he just manages to keep his "cool" face in place; Rick does a much better job of hiding his reaction. This story is full of suspense, intrigue and enough red herrings to keep you guessing until the bad guy is revealed. And oh, Rick Fine has a secret of his own that might just destroy the best thing that ever happened to him. I hope there will be more books in this series as I am nowhere near ready for it to end. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.

    GUARDING MR. FINE is excellent times ten!

    Seth Lang is not happy with his latest assignment: a cushy desk job babysitting the new US consul general in Munich. His CIA bosses see it as a reward, Seth more as a punishment. He is bored stiff, he still has three days in Berlin, so he goes to a club for a drink. Seth is bisexual, he ended a relationship with a woman several months before, and in the club he notices a handsome man watching him. Seth goes right up to him, they click, and they have sex in a closet. It’s a good thing that Seth is a consummate operative, because the temporary replacement for the consul general is none other than his one-nighter: Rick Fine, who is also CIA… I had really liked the first two books in the Tough Love series, but I had found them lacking on the heat side, and it’s certainly not the case with GUARDING MR. FINE! They do say third time’s a charm, and this book is terrific! I was eagerly anticipating Seth’s story, he’s a fabulous character, and I am thrilled with how it turned out. GUARDING MR. FINE literally starts off with a, er, bang, and it keeps on hitting from all sides. Rick and Seth have to work together in order to find out what really happened to the late consul, and I absolutely loved that the issues they face has nothing to do with the fact that they had sex; they don’t have the same approach to missions, Seth is as hot-tempered as Rick remains cool as a cucumber, and the professional tension between them is nearly lethal. The story, while building on what happened in the previous books, is really independent, although some other characters reappear, among others Helena Bond, an African-American woman in a powerful position; I love that Seth is part Chinese, and there is not one stereotype in sight, for whatever reason. Rick and Seth both rather strong and difficult personalities, they clash often, and again I felt every word. I could go on for ages on how fascinating, complex, and genuine both Rick and Seth are; what an amazing couple, and what chemistry! I had had some difficulties with the sex scenes in the previous books; I thought the characters appeared detached, but GUARDING MR. FINE is scorching hot! GUARDING MR. FINE is fast-paced, well written, terribly exciting, and sizzling hot. It is as riveting to experience the romance develop as it is to watch the suspense unfold. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book
