☆ Read Ø Continental Divide by Laura Harner ↠´ Edit 12 12 15 In light of the recent news of Harner s plagiarism of other books, I m dropping the rating for this down to 0 stars 2.
5 stars was way too generous to begin with I thought as individuals, Jamie and Remy had some potential Jamie s an earl but took a job as an inspector to do something useful with himself Remy s a cowboy he wears boots and he s from the American Southwest, so that makes him a cowboy right rolls eyes who clearly has an abusive past but it s never outright stated and it feels like a wasted plot line Actually, most of the plot was wasted in this book, because as soon as these two see each other, they re insta lusting and nearly insta sexing and I was pretty much bored through the first half of this book while the authors assured the readers that yes, this is an M M book It all feels extremely contrived and not at a 5 STARSThat is by far the most intense undercover cop novel I ve read, actually it s almost on par with Hostile Ground by L.
A Witt Continental Divide left up to your imagination putting your bloody nerves and anxiety levels through the roof It was very well written with incredible MC s and the storyline and writing just flowed in directions that kept me on the edge of my seat.

I see my favourite reviewer Mr TA Webb has done an excellent job as usual, but for me, this series has started off really well, and the second book is already loaded and being read Jamie Mainwaring pronounced Mannering, nope I don t understand it either and I m English is a Lordand a detective in London Colt Remington is a detective in Phoenix, Arizona How these two are brought together and for what purpose you will have to discover for yourself, but I will say that the action between the two of them is smokin.
and that s all I m saying Just a quick note for the grammar police.
yes there are lots of irritating niggles in this bookspelling jell instead of gel , Jaime instead of Jamie, some words missing altogetherbut I suspect that is entirely to do with the person I m furious and frustrated and I just don t even know what to say This was a five star book up until the end when it just fizzled There was tons of suspense and I kept waiting for something to happen but nothing did But that wasn t even the worse part view spoiler There was no HEA or even an HFA What s worse, is that looking at the reviews for the next book, it doesn t happen there, either It think it s just wrong to make us believe these two have something incredibly special and that they love each other and then make them end up apart I feel betrayed view spoiler I won t read the next one until there s a third that makes it all okay again.
I might write later if I feel like I can do so without vomiting Ironic since I ended up in the hospital from complica Didn t know what to expect with this, but I have enjoyed everything that I have read by Ms Harner so far This is no exception This time it s Phoenix cop Colt Remington and British Lord Jamie Manwaring brought together when they both happen upon a child sex trafficking ring Their simultaneous discoveries of boys that have disappeared, brings them together when an organization similar to Interpol happens upon their findings It is oil and water for these two, but their coming together sparks a very romantic duo Unfortunately, Remy is a very damaged man that can not open up to a relationship, and Jamie is a snarky wealthy lord of the realm Remy doesn t do relationships, and Jamie needs one badly Inspite of this baggage, they love each other very much It s a very loving, yet bittersweet romance It left me wanting much , so much I gi spoilers Warning, I m not sure this book should be considered romance While it started out ok, it does not have a HEA, or even a HFN The characters appear to develop feelings for each other, then nadda.
And the next book in the series.
The 2 MC are with different people I was soo mad that I had invested all those reading hours rooting for Remington and Jamie only to have them casually go separate ways.
Others may feel differently, but IMHO, that is not romance.
Heellloooo I guess I should have paid attention to the seriestitle QQ Separate ways, 1 I just felt I was mislead because the title was recommended as a m m romance.
5 4 stars Great story interesting plot and I loooved Jamie Colt Hated the ending The ending crushed my little romantic soul I know there are books in this series, but I m scared to read them after having my heart ripped out like that.
Audible 3,5 stars.
I enjoyed this audio book, but maybe not much enough to keep on listening to it without long pauses in between I don t blame the narrator Dax Fischer did a good job, it was just too much of a ridiculous mystery for my spoiled taste Probably it is a reason why I lost the connection to the MCs somewhere in the middle of the story Still I ll recommend to read it to all fans of MM suspense romance with a main focus on the relationship between two very different but pretty hot guys Don t expect a well done mystery here, but who read Cut Run series because of a mystery part Extra 0,5 star bonus for Dax Fisher s narrating skills.
I know this is a co write between Lisa Worrall and Laura Harner and, I must say, it was seamless I have read Lisa Worrall before and I truly enjoy her writing style and I loved Continental Divide.
The two MC s are hot independently and smoking together Their combined chemistry had my Kindle melting This, for me, is a big plus.
James Jamie Mainwaring is an Earl, 87th in line to the throne, and while he enjoys the finer things in life, like plush hotels and fine dining, he is not a snob Much to his mother s chagrin, he is a police officer, and gay, who has worked his way up to Inspector He now has several baffling case files on young boys that have complet
