ARC REVIEW : Dearly Stalked by Allison Cassatta
Writing crime novels catapulted Memphis native Silas Cooper to fame and fortune, but when his words backfire and he becomes trapped in what could be one of his books, he needs a hero of his own.
Silas’s publicist insists he hire a personal assistant, and Silas chooses Scott Kramer. But before Scott starts, he already has a round of steamy phone sex to hold over Silas’s head, and his interest in his boss isn’t decreasing.
Benjamin Logan joined the Army to see the world, and while deployed he read every one of Silas’s books. With his military career over, Ben is back in Memphis working for the police department—and attempting a deeply closeted relationship with fellow cop Morgan Brown.
Over coffee, Silas and Ben become friends who support each other as relationships fall apart, and the attraction between them slowly emerges. When a dangerous stalker threatens Silas, it’s up to Ben to stop him.
If Ben fails, Silas might not live to tell this story… and Ben might not be able to live with himself Dearly Stalked by Allison Cassatta
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It's a long book, and I have to adjust with the writing style as well.
Both MCs not really my liking, pinning to their other lovers instead of finding their way to each other.
The chemistry was also not really as strong as I expected.
And I had a hard time reading their sex life with others. No cheating whatsoever, they're actually quite loyal to their (other) partners, even admitted love.
I don't know. I guess, their closeness was more of the danger Silas's faced and Ben was there for him. Not that I'm complained.
But together after 60% mark, didn't satisfied me at all.
More thoughts to follow, I guess...
