Love Kills by Michael Mandrake Blog Tour

Deranged birds of a feather flock together… leaving trails of blood in their wake.

Holland has fantasies most can’t accept. When potential mates discover Holland’s bloodlust, it’s too late for them to refuse. Determined to get what he wants, Holland continues to seek a man to fulfill his deepest desire and he won’t stop at anything

Archer is inspired and aroused by the tales he’s heard from his boyfriend. Still, he’s greedy for something that pushes him over the edge. Although this might drive him and his partner apart, Archer’s dark want won’t disappear.

Clint’s love for his job has slipped for years, and he’s pondered change. These days he’s cared more about how to please his man, than the rigorous position of solving murder cases. Clint thinks his attitude will eventually get better, thus prompting him to stay aboard. Still, the constant worry of Archer finding someone new niggles at him.

Putting sketchy characters behind bars had always been Clint’s forte, but when new feelings arise, Clint’s conscience is tested. Furthermore, what will happen if Clint is forced to choose between the love of his life, his career, and his morality?

This book is part of CRIMINAL DELIGHTS. Each novel can be read as a standalone and contains a dark M/M romance.

Warning: These books are for adult readers who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurry. High heat, twisted and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted.

Clint and Archer have been together for a few years. Despite the age difference, Clint believes he's ready to settle down with Archer. However, Archer has other things on his mind.

Then you bring in Holland. Archer and Holland both have an affinity for blood and guts. They find a kindred spirit in each other and even though Holland thought he would use Archer for a different thing, they quickly become bonded.

This was a dark book in that you got to see the darker side of Archer and Holland together. Then, when you brought in Clint, the voyeurism aspect was filled with chemistry. However, the characters all felt one dimensional. The instant nicknames that Holland and Archer took to was also somewhat cheesy.

Overall, while this was much darker than the first, again, I was underwhelmed with the story. This needed more development of the story and characters. Their connection was tenuous at best.

Michael Mandrake pens complex characters already comfortable with their sexuality. Through these, he builds worlds not centered on romance but rather the mainstream and/or obscure plots we might encounter in everyday life and beyond.
