Match Grade by G.B. Gordon Blog Tour


Eirik Haldurson is a hitman. Kidnapped at age five and cruelly trained by his captor, he is today one of the most sought-after contract killers alive. Emotional distance from his targets, brutally beaten into him until it became second nature, is now the only way he can function. Lately though, that distance has started to elude him.

And when a Colombian drug cartel contracts Eirik to take out ex-soldier-turned-vigilante, Matt Moreno, distance is suddenly as close as heat to fire. And all hell breaks loose.

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.

I am sure I am in the minority with my opinion on this book, but it wasn't very dark. I was expecting so much more. There were so many pages in the beginning that didn't have dialogue that I was losing interest fast. I need dialogue, not a monologue. When Eirik and Matt meet they’ve both finally met their match. Besides a few hot sex scenes, I was really underwhelmed by the story.

This is a strange story. It's about a tormented assassin who is finding out that there might be more to life. Eirik is a character who is difficult to get to know. You think he's one dimensional for much of the story, but overall, there are layers beyond what he shows.

Matt knows that he has a target on his back. He's known for a while. But when he comes across Eirik, he can't help but be intrigued.

These two characters together have a fragile friendship. They believe that they could really care for each other, but in reality, they don't know much about each other. While this book is a short one, I wanted more character development.

I'll see if the second book is going to bring a more cohesive story, but this one just missed the mark for me. There is not much darkness in the story. You're kind of wondering why Matt and Eirik are together and it just felt incomplete.

G.B. Gordon worked as a packer, landscaper, waiter, and coach before going back to school to major in linguistics and, at 35, switch to less backbreaking monetary pursuits like translating, editing, and writing.

Having lived in various parts of the world, Gordon is now happily ensconced in suburban Ontario with the best of all husbands.
