Now it’s Levi’s turn.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the second book in the series, and I would suggest that not only do you need to read Dead Draw first, but I would you recommend that you read it immediately before this one. Layla Reyne has created a really complex mystery, with a lot of fabulous characters, and you really want to be completely up to date with all the crazy. There are reminders along the way, but I have to admit when I first started it, I wished I had reread Dead Draw in anticipation. Add in the fact that we also get cameos from Fog City, we have really been provided with a treat of a new novel.

Marsh has taken his new husband and stepson to the safety of his mothers' home. Here Levi gets to see a different side to Marsh and falls for him even more. Marsh still cannot consider himself worthy, and it is Levi's task, along with solving the mystery, to ensure that Marsh finally feels at home with him and his son. I loved this essential side element to the bigger story. It was so fundamental, and so important that these two men, already married due to circumstance, could find their happily ever after together.

The drama was twisted, complicated, and fast-paced, which contrasted perfectly with how slow Marsh was at believing in the love between him and Levi. I loved the conflict in pace, and the scene is now set for some really intense next steps ...

This is the story that starts off calmer after the high action ending of book one. Marsh takes Levi and David to his childhood home to meet his mothers and to keep them all safe. I enjoyed the time spent on the ranch while the men regroup and work out what their next move should be to bring down the human traffickers.

When Levi and Marsh travel to Vienna, the tempo of the story starts to increase bit by bit as we meet the various players in the international investigation and meet Marsh’s friends and colleagues. As we learn about the ongoing investigation in Vienna, it was hard to know who to trust and ultimately, who the bad guys actually are. As the story headed to its climax, I got more and more nervous. I was worried that even if Levi and Marsh survived physically, that their relationship might not.

Reading Bad Bishop kept me on my toes. The twists and turns in the story surprised me and Reyne has once again provided a story with a good amount of romance, tension, and unpredictability. I always love a good mystery and crime fighting, but for me, the highlight of this story is Levi and Marsh’s relationship. I’m desperate for Marsh to get a happily ever after and I can’t wait to read King Hunt, the conclusion of this trilogy, due out next year.
