Book: A Heart’s Desire
Author: Kris Michaels
Genre: M/M FBI Romance
Agent McKenzie is nobody’s ‘yes’ boy and has the letters of reprimand to prove it. He smells the stink of political maneuvering in this case and he can see the handwriting on the wall. Hell, the words are three feet high and written in crayon. Someone in his own agency wants a target on Liam Mercier’s back but McKenzie would be damned if he’d put one there. The damaged man currently in his custody needs his protection, not manipulation. That’s why he’d agreed to use a safe house that was off the grid. Throwing away his rarely used FBI procedure book had nothing to do with the protective urges he felt around Liam. Nope, not a damn thing to do with heavy doses of desire, or spikes of lust. He was just doing his job, after all, he has a killer to catch and a victim to keep alive. Protecting his best bet of taking that sick bastard down was his civic duty.
Forced to face the nightmares of his past or lose his pension, Liam Mercier did the only thing he could do. He walked back into his personal hell. The man assigned to protect him is everything Liam wanted and needed—four years ago. Leaving the small island of sanity he’d been existing on could cost him everything. But being hunted by a genius, sadistic killer without the protection of the sexy, intense, agent was a guaranteed death sentence. Fate had dictated Liam’s course four years ago. The only thing he questioned was when his killer going to finish his work.

A Heart’s Desire by Kris Michaels This is an interesting story about Agent Mckenzie who is good at his job but has several reprimands in is file. He is now assigned to the case of a serial killer who has escaped from the mental facility. Agent Mckenzie has been assigned to guarding and using the serial killers last victim who survived as bait. Liam Mercer is not only the only surviving victim of a serial killer but he is a former agent as well. Now a recluse trying to survive what he endured he is now brought out of hiding. This story is so much more than Agent Mckenzie catching a serial killer. This is a story that sucks you in and takes you on a wild ride. A suspenseful tale of cat and mouse with a twist. I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review. I give this story 5 stars

I loved this book! I haven’t realized how much I needed a book like this until I was hooked and could not stop reading. The suspense and twisted serial killer was very written. My heart broke for Liam with what he had gone thru and how he was living four years later. Only to be forced back by people he does not even work for. I was angry, I was sad, I was worried, I was happy. This book tapped into all my emotions. I wish I could read this book again for the first time. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a dark, suspenseful mm book. I am looking forward to reading more work by this author.
