Day and Knight by Dirk Greyson

As former NSA, Dayton (Day) Ingram has national security chops and now works as a technical analyst for Scorpion. He longs for fieldwork, and scuttling an attack gives him his chance. He’s smart, multilingual, and a technological wizard. But his opportunity comes with a hitch—a partner, Knighton (Knight), who is a real mystery. Despite countless hours of research, Day can find nothing on the agent, including his first name!

Former Marine Knight crawled into a bottle after losing his family. After drying out, he’s offered one last chance: along with Day, stop a terrorist threat from the Yucatan. To get there without drawing suspicion, Day and Knight board a gay cruise, where the deeply closeted Day and equally closeted Knight must pose as a couple. Tensions run high as Knight communicates very little and Day bristles at Knight’s heavy-handed need for control.

But after drinking too much, Day and Knight wake up in bed. Together. As they near their destination, they must learn to trust and rely on each other to infiltrate the terrorist camp and neutralize the plot aimed at the US’s technological infrastructure, if they hope to have a life after the mission. One that might include each other.

This had the potential to be an amazing story. It just missed the mark for me. I normally really like Andrew Grey stories – this is another pen name.

Day is an analyst who wants to do field work. He has amazing skills to decipher and problem solve on the fly. While he has a somewhat eclectic background, he knows that it will come in handy. Day gets his chance when he helps someone in a dark alley – he's being sent into the field with another agent to try and figure out whether there will be an attack on US soil.

Knight has just recently stopped his destructive behavior – after losing his wife and son in a terrible way, Knight found himself drinking more and more... alone. When his group needs him to come back into the fold, he is in charge of keeping a new analyst alive... something he's not excited about. However, with each passing minute, he finds he's more and more intrigued by Day.

These two were supposed to have chemistry, but it was hard to decipher between sarcasm and what was genuine. Also, the mystery part was hard to follow since you didn't really get to see what they were looking at. I wish that we had more information – I felt left out of the mystery part.

Overall, it was an okay thriller, but lacked some cohesiveness. The romance, for me, was not very successful. However, I am interested if the second book will continue following these characters or if new characters will be introduced.

DIRK is very much an outside kind of man. He loves travel and seeing new things. Dirk worked in corporate America for way too long and now spends his days writing, gardening, and taking care of the home he shares with his partner of more than two decades. He has a master’s degree and all the other accessories that go with a corporate job. But he is most proud of the stories he tells and the life he’s built. Dirk lives in Pennsylvania in a century-old home and is blessed with an amazing circle of friends.
