When young Sebastian Brambani meets a sexy and exciting older man, he's easily seduced. But for spy Kyle Grant, it's all business. Sebastian is simply a pawn in Kyle's mission to acquire a dangerous chemical weapon from Sebastian's criminal father. Kyle's life is his work for a shadowy international agency protecting the world from evil, and he can't worry about what will happen to Sebastian when the job is done.

Sebastian's unwitting role in Kyle's plan is the last straw for his ruthless father, who has been embarrassed by his gay son for the last time. But when Kyle discovers Sebastian could be the key to finding the deadly Chimera, he rescues him from a hired hitman and fights to keep him alive. Can a hardened spy and naïve college student take down a criminal kingpin, stay one step ahead of the killers on their trail—and fight the scorching attraction between them?

Running with guns firing behind them, getting out of near death situations and thinking through the most impossible scenarios just to stay alive has pretty much been Kyle and Sebastian's life from the moment they first met.

Sebastian had the rug pulled underneath him and his whole world turned upside down right after he met the perfect man. It was the last mistake his father was willing to allow, and scared for his future, Sebastian is surprised when he gets the help he needs in the form of the spy who got him in the mess in the first place.

Kyle is the perfect guy for the job, but when everything goes wrong he has trouble with blaming himself and on top of disobeying orders, he can't understand why he saved the son of his target and why he keeps dragging the kid along.

I think I expected more drama when I first started reading this story. The characters had enough background to them to make for a pretty deep read, but their past was only touched and any deep exploration of what actually made them tick was avoided. I enjoyed the action, which was really well written with constant jumps from one situation to the next, which were only interrupted with sex scenes.

On one hand I liked the tempo of the book and it did keep me interested, but it was far from having me gripping at the edge of my seat waiting for what would happen next. I thought there was too much sex to be honest, scenes that did little to make the story better and that barely deepened the relationship between the characters, but as I read further, the plot made up for that and I ended up having fun.

Bursting with action and releases of sexual tension, THE CHIMERA AFFAIR is a book worth your time. After all, a bit of James Bond type of entertainment never hurt anyone.
