U.S. Marshal Wyatt Tanning has been on the hunt for a killer on the run in Turks and Caicos. A week into the investigation, he has absolutely nothing to show for his efforts. Feeling defeated he returns to Castillo Resort to drown his frustrations. 

There he meets UFC fighter, Rye Daniels. Now the resort’s bartender, Rye recognizes a man that has been beaten down, but he also senses a shared attraction that is hard to ignore. Wyatt might not be ready to step out from behind the shadow of lies, but Rye will stop at nothing to unleash the beast within. (Goodreads)

My Romancing Thoughts:

Hot! Hot! Hot!

Wyatt Tanning is a law enforcement official who's latest case sends him to the Castillo Resort on the beautiful island of Turks and Caicos. As a US Marshall, Wyatt doesn't have a lot of time on his hands for romance and has enlisted the help of Madame Eve, a matchmaker in Vegas, in his quest for love. When his case hits a dead end, Wyatt decides to enjoy a night off and heads on over to the resort's bar to drink his cares away.

Just one look at the sexy bartender, Rye Daniels, stirs up a sexual attraction hidden deep within Wyatt that he's never explored before. An ex UFC fighter turned bartender, Rye is definitely easy on the eyes with a laid back attitude and exudes a charm that tests Wyatt's willpower to the brink. After their short encounter at the bar, Rye realizes the spark between him and Wyatt is one that he cannot forget and is determined to make the first move and give into a night of unbridled passion.

Wow...that's the one word I was left with after reading this novella. I'm fairly new to the m/m erotic romance genre but can say these two characters have some of the best chemistry I have read in a while! I love how the author creates two alpha male characters who give into their desires even if just for one night. The story is fast paced, centering around these two characters and the encounter between these two sexy men is scorching to say the least. Wyatt and Rye's passion will leave you wanting more. Takedown is a tantalizing short read that's sure to spice up your day!

*Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Male/male sexual practices.
