Review: Teasing Jonathan (Mercenary Love #3) by Amber Kell

Teasing Jonathan (Mercenary Love #3)Teasing Jonathan by Amber Kell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have a huge grin on my face. Hating Jonathan in Tempting Sin, I find him a really likable fellow who was misjudged by all, including myself.

We were all introduced to Jonathan as that a$$ of a newbie bodyguard to Callum in Tempting Sin, Book One of the Mercenary Love Series. I never imagined that Amber Kell would make a turncoat of all of her readers by making us love this guy.

In Teasing Jonathan, we see that he had spent all those years defending his country. Faced with PTSD, will Jonathan lose the battle over his heart?

When Jonathan Stevens meets Kai Stromwell, it’s attraction at first sight, but can a brief sizzle turn into a lasting fire? A series of events leads Jonathan to believe someone is trying to kill Kai. The question is who? With no obvious motives the most he can do is stick close to the handsome man and stay alert. Keeping Kai safe becomes the focus of his life while he fights his own personal demons.

Kai Stromwell has worked hard to build up his fortune. Upon meeting Jonathan he wonders if maybe there is more to life than long hours at the office. When attempts on his life become more and more aggressive, he turns to his new love for answers. Depending on someone had never been easy but he would give up his millions if he could spend the rest of his life teasing Jonathan.

This was no way in the league of Tempting Sin which I absolutely loved and have read no less than 5 times. It's my go-to book when I want to forget that the kitchen is my domain and my kids are wrecking havoc creating their own - thingies.

Not being in the league of that first book though does not mean that it is anything less. It is a fitting installment and I really liked having Sin and Patrick getting some action here. I was a bit disappointed that although Callum whipped up a fantastic omelette, that was the last of him. Sigh..... I wish, too, that the author had written a scene where Kai and Callum were in it together. And how about Arthur? Where was he?

One thing that prevented me from rating this any higher was the ending - sorrowfully, it was a bit abrupt. Truly, I just really wanted this to be longer. I found myself not wanting to let go and I just wanted to read more and get more goofy at one a.m.

At the end, I knew it had to end. Now I just wish the author would clue us in if this is the end? or will there be more of this wonderfully entertaining series?
