The Talented Mr. Rivers gives me everything I expect when I pick up a HelenKay book. There is an intense, hot, steamy connection between the main characters, dangerous action that threatens the MCs, a few twists and turns and a fun and clever supporting cast. Oh, and some fun banter too.
I had one problem with this book and I know it's probably just me and I can't figure out why, but I had SUCH a problem with the names of the main characters. Hunter, the bodyguard/agent/tough guy and Will, the younger of the two, the college grad, the almost studious one, the youngest, supposedly oblivious sibling of a vicious crime family. I kept getting their names mixed up. I'd read Will and be surprised that it was Hunter and vice versa. It was very annoying and lasted through the whole book. I've never come across this specific problem before. *LOL*
Sexy, steamy suspense is what HelenKay does and it's so much fun to read. Her characters are always wonderfully larger than life and always flawed in some way or another. :) Except for Seth, I've not seen a single flaw in him yet. Maybe in the next book, his story, Guarding Mr. Fine.
