Review: Things Happen That Way: The Continuing Adventures of Mark Vincent and Quinton Mann (Mann of My Dreams Book 2) by Tinnean

Things Happen That Way (Mann of my Dreams, #2)
Goodreads | Amazon
Quinton Mann and Mark Vincent are settling into a relationship that shouldn’t be possible. After all, Quinn is CIA, while Mark belongs to the WBIS, an agency labeled by others in the intelligence community as being staffed by sociopaths. Somehow, in spite of that, they seem to be making it work.
Surprisingly, it isn’t work that separates them but family matters and a friend’s plea for help when his partner is kidnapped. Quinn is off to London, while Mark heads for Los Angeles to solve the kidnapping. Then Mark gets called to Paris by Femme of the Division, where things are not as they seem. Quinn, thinking to meet Mark in Paris, ends up coming to Mark's rescue. Back in the States, Mark fights taking time to recover from being shot while events are happening at the CIA that could endanger both Quinn and his best friend, DB. 
Between family, friends, and Mark, how will Quinn make the opportunity to talk to Mark about moving in together and even starting a family?

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

I needed a Tinnean fix and scrambled when I realized, I totally missed out on Things Happen That Way. Well, now I've read it, thank you! I got the Mark and Quinn fix I desperately needed and got more.

For those who have no idea who Mark and Quinn are, go to the author page and just get all of them. This is a blast of a series and its offshoots are just as entertaining and awesome. These two men are so bad-ass they make the rest out there seem meh. Then again, I love M&Q and as my kids say, totally ship them, so there.

In this installation, we see a different side of the story with  If You're Going Through Hell Keep Going (Mann of My Dreams #1). This story is from Quinn's point of view and clears up a whole lot of missing details from that first book. However, this is also a book where we find the two men kind of reveal their love for each other and there are hints of them wanting to go a step or two further. We read about Quinn's needs and see his softer side. We also read about how Quinn just simply loves his Mark and in the process, paint a softer picture of the killer we know him to be.

In this book, we also catch a glimpse of how deadly their families and friends really are. It simply amplifies to the fans how much of action-packed we crave for with just that hint of eroticism.

Mann and Quinn fix this truly is, but it is more. If you want to find out what that more is... well, you know what to do.
