Seven years ago bounty hunter, Smith Knox’s life was turned upside when his friend and lover, Cyr up and left in the middle of the night. When his latest assignment throws him back into the path of his former lover, Smith is determined not to let it happen again. Yet he cannot resist the heat between him and Cyr, and ends up falling into his arms…and onto the mattress.

As passion flares, Cyr cannot believe he is once again close to the man he thought he’d lost. Caught up between the sheets and reacquainting themselves with scorching sex, the pair almost lose sight of their target.

But Cyr’s lies finally catch up with them and threatening to tear their fragile relationship apart…

Cyr’s Revenge is one of the first gay romances I’ve read and I have to say I’m extremely impressed. Kudos to Ms. Johnson. What could be better than one hot male hero? Two, of course! I did get the impression that either Cyr or Smith would play dominant while the other played submissive, but these two males are Alpha all the way. It was intriguing to read about their interplay – their quippy, sarcastic comments; about sex from a male point of view.

What I especially loved about this story though was the romantic element – the emotions, the feelings, between Cyr and Smith. Seeing two tough men fall in love despite all the odds would warm the heart of any romance reader. And the sex…whew…just sizzled off the page.

It’s not all about sumptuous male bodies and romance, however, the plot is a solid one with both men on the trail of a ‘drug dealer’ and is linked to the Hunters for Hire series.

Did I enjoy this erotic romance? You bet. Would I recommend it? Yes. A quick read with plenty of bite. A big thumbs up for the Hunters for Hire!
