I wasn't in the mood for detectives when I started reading this one, but to my surprise I liked the story very much and the characters were right up there with some of the best detective stories I've read.

HOLD YOUR FIRE starts with Greg literally barging into Jay's apartment after ten years and having sex with him in the hallway. As I am a kinky individual, I got certain pleasure from that scene and can honestly say I enjoyed it. But one sexual encounter doesn't just erase their previous argument and it certainly can't turn back time.

Greg is determined to have another chance, but Jay is reluctant to give away his trust once again. Then their decisions are taken from them as they are thrust into a hateful vengeance from an enemy of the past, and a lovers' quarrel starts to look more like a fight for survival.

Their predicament with the stalker held my interest almost to the very end, and I found it pretty accurate in a sense that all my questions were answered and the bad guy seemed like a realistic choice to me. The sex wasn't dominant to the story, but was very hot and their mutual attraction flashed from the pages.

As for the remarks, this book lost points with me at the ending. While I did like the last sudden flash of action, it came out as nothing but an unnecessary tool to make the book longer. In those pages I expected more of the main couple. Their reasons for the rocky past and the smoothing over their current differences would have been a welcome addition. In the end, I felt as if they just started the old story from the beginning without really discussing original problems. In that regard, I found it unbelievable and Jay somewhat na´ve.

But even with all that, I did like this story and would like to read more from this author.
