Imple command in Kit's cut glass accent makes Will want things he’s never wanted do things he’s never done Their red hot chemistry is off the charts Just one problem Will has vowed to kill the billionaire that Kit. Y all I don t even know I snapped up this book as soon as I finished the novella which turned out to be the first 8 chapters of this novel That should ve raised a flag or two IJSHaving never read anything by Annika Martin I basically snagged this book based on my lurve for Joanna Chambers Her Enlightenment series is one of my faves so I was THRILLED to read a contemporary MM by herInitially I thought I was going to end up giving this novel at least a 45 BUT THEN certain things started to annoy me the way a pebble does inside a shoe until I ended up practically hate reading it to its rather fizzed out end What I liked Kit sexiest spy ever DebatableNot surprisingly Joanna Chambers wrote his POV scenes AND IT SHOWS SO MUCH If it was up to me I would have read 1000s of pages about him He s this person who has a LOT of layers and a background that is so opera heroine like Joanna Chambers must have had tons of fun writing him We do get to learn a lot about him and it is that v knowledge what allows readers to forgive his somewhat wacky behavior in the melodramatic scenes in the next to last chapter I liked the Ds aspect of his relationship with Will But then I ve got a soft spot for characters who constantly one up another Even though Will was such a run of the mill macho dude his submission to Kit s cool demeanor was hella tasty Ridic af but there we areWhat I didn t like Who is Will No really WHO IS HEI had a difficult time figuring him out All we learn about him is that 1 He lead a team in Kabul they died and he feels guilty about that So now he has a plan of REVENGE that he doesn t expect to survive2 He really likes Kit Especially in panties Also when Kit orders him aroundThat s it Does he like to drink coffee Does he have any hobbies aside from lusting after Kit and pretending he doesn t Is he a cat person or a dog person handsAnnika Martin wrote him as a generic Alpha dude who rationalizes a lot of how his body and mind respond to Kit He s a pastiche of the usual macho hero dude Honestly he was SO incomplete as a character that I didn t care if he lived died or ended up in an alternate dimensionI mean there s a female side character who works along Will and we learn just as much about her as we learn about Will Soooooo The random kink club sceneOK without spoiling muchThere s a scene in which Will visits a kink club on his own in order to find some answers about himself The problem is that the way he goes about it feels v superficialNever mind the reactions from his play partner who isn t Kit that is almost like one out of a really bad porn Neither of them behave in a way that feel human or real Will is super dismissive even though he s being hit v hard and the person he plays with is kinda dispassionate It s all kinda a HUGE mehhhhhhhhhhI m gonna give a generous guess that this scene is supposed to be a contrast to the way Will does kink with Kit vs with someone else Imreallytryingtonotbetoomean The plot Oh spies being all spy likezzzzPart of what kept me reading this book even as I rolled my eyes into the next century was that I thought of it in terms akin to a summer blockbuster movie The kind with OTT premises and ultra cheesy lines This is on the fantasy level of spy stories At one point I was pumped cuz the plot hinted at the idea that Kit and Will would have to travel around the world in a short time while searching for SUPER IMPORTANT YET SECRET THING I expected like Mission Impossible Rogue Nation and ended up getting Paul Blart Mall Cop 4The whole thing came undone in the last 15% The SUPER IMPORTANT YET SECRET THING that everyone was searching for might be at xyz place So Will and Kit prepare to go on a FINAL MISSION TO CONFRONT DESTINY or some such thing The book tries to make the reader think that the tension is intense zomg and that readers will be at the edge of their seats111BUTa I never felt either Kit or Will were in actual danger Not once and this could be explained by the fact that other than being a sleazy dude who happens to be Russian we don t really know much about Polzin Like how does he run his empire shrugsb Unfulfilled promise Let us go to view spoilerWill has spent a whole book talking about how much he was going to make Polzin suffer and all the terrible things he was going to do He finally gets a chance to do EXACTLY WHAT HE S BEEN TALKING ABOUT FOR 23 OF THE NOVEL and when given the chance to rain excruciating suffering on Polzinhe kills him OFF SCREEN WTF WILL WHY DID YOU DISPATCHED THE ONE MAN YOU WERE SO EAGER TO PRETTY MUCH TORTURE SO UICKLY insert annoyed look emoji hide spoiler

Is hell bent on protectingAnd Kit has secrets too his own reasons for sacrificing his soul piece by painful piece to keep one of the worst men on earth alive This is a stand alone hot contemporary MM bodyguardspy roman. For those of you who have read the FREE novella Enemies with Benefits the story will start at Chapter 9 For those who haven t well Chapter 1 8 of this book is basically the novella Enemies Like You the first installment of Enemies with Benefits series as well as the debut of collaboration between Joanna Chambers and Annika Martin ends up being on the lower end of just okay spectrum for me My biggest problem to enjoy this enemies to lovers romance is because I only cared about one half of the euation while dismissive towards the other You can imagine myself being bored with one narration and skimming a lot and wishing that I could read this book solely from one character s perspectiveLet me explain Enemies Like You is written using two narratives One is Will the CIA freelance assassin who is dead set to kill Sergei Polzin the man responsible in killing Will s bands of brothers The other is Kit the British bodyguard extraordinaire who also poses as Polzin s girlfriend when neededI am not familiar with Annika Martin s writing or how this duo works but based on her background being an American I assume Ms Martin tackles Will s chapters and Ms Chambers writes Kit sI didn t have a problem with Kit s chapters In fact I LOVED them I loved Kit I thought Kit had layers that kept me very much engaged throughout a bodyguard who cross dressed on occasions with an artist soul Kit didn t protect Polzin simply because it was his job Oh no Kit had reasons to do it and readers would learn about this as the story went onIt was Will s chapters that made me struggle so much I thought Will was very flat and two dimensional as a character While I could try to suspend my disbelief the fact that he ended up thinking with his dck during mission made me want to get my money back if I am CIA I disliked how Will s chapters were basically only providing the physical interaction sex and sex blowjob masturbation and so on of the story It was very disappointing for me because I thought Will had a great background for this story After his army brothers died Will basically had suicidal mission He became an effective assassin although I uestion his reputation during this mission because he just stop caring I wish THAT is being explored Instead I felt completely detached from Will and wish I could just read of Kit s chaptersIn fact Will seemed to have nuanced to be human when he was written from Kit s point of viewThat is my reason for my rating I am not sure if I want to read the next books I love Joanna Chambers she s one of MM historical authors who is responsible for my liking that genre I avoid historical romance before at all cost So I want to follow this series for her But I m worried that Ms Martin s writing might not be my cup of tea based also from her backlist titles that seem to be sexy than romanticI guess we ll just have to wait and see The ARC is provided by the author for an exchange of fair and honest review No high rating is reuired for any ARC received

    Minus One Star TL;DR click here for Giedre's reviewI don't even know where to start to be honestSo I'll just go from the beginning I despised Will and his cave man routine that's basically thinly veiled homophobia

    25I sadly fell in like and not love with this story Such a shame because I was really looking forward to reading it The sex was off the charts hot The chemistry was great What was not so great was all the time we spent without these guys being on page with each other There wasn't enough of them together for this to feel like a true romance book We just got bits and pieces of them together and I didn't enjoy that We get of the sus
