Wow, how have I missed this series. L.M. Somerton really knows how to write a good mystery and blend in a BDSM relationship perfectly.
First we start with Poor Landry finding a body behind the Treasure Trove’s shutters, which naturally leads Landry to a hit of sugar to calm his nerves, not that he needs any excuse to get a coffee and sugar fix.
The body is the start of an exciting mystery that takes the reader on a tense trip.
Add an annoying dubious art specialist from Britain by the name of James Ellery, who I believe has appeared in a previous book in the series, as there seems to be some bad blood between James, Gage (Landry’s partner and Dom), who is the investigating officer on the case.
Landry and Pete his assistant in the antique shot, decide to do their own investigation online, going against Gage’s order, and earning Landry a punishment. But ultimately helps Gage and James when they hit a brick wall.
Oh, how I love Landry. He is my favourite kind of sub, a little brattish, and has a bit of fight in him when needed. The dynamic between Landry and Gage is just perfect, with plenty of banter, teasing and humour.
I really like the friendship between Pete and Landry too, and their scheming behind their Dom’s backs is so funny and entertaining.
There is plenty of action, including shoot out’s, Murder, and a kidnapping which are nicely paced and well written.
My favourite section of the story is when Landry finds safety in a café full of bears, and Landry being the sweet sub that he is, has them all rushing around him, feeding his sugar and coffee addictions.
As with all LM’s characters they are so well developed and have unique personalities.
I now must find time to read the previous two books before book four is released.
