Three Wrong Turns in the Desert (Have Body, Will Guard #1)
Reading the next one ASAP!
Great book for those who like adventure and hot hot men in the hot hot desert :O)
This one was alright. The mystery was okay but very secret agent'ish, what with the passed notes and translated messages for certain "eyes only." Add to that the fact that almost every stranger Aidan and Liam came across was more than willing to help them. Totally selfless and wonderful but not very realistic.I liked that both MCs were smart, independent, strong characters. I liked traveling to Tunisia and getting a flavor of the people and the places visited.
What didn't I like? Stinky...more
The author went to great lengths to describe the setting well enough that the reader could easily imagine being there with the characters.
I loved Aidan to bits, he was funny and adventurous and a great fit for Liam who was a bit more serious but very tender too. The whole plot had me wondering what the hell was going on and very interested in a conclusion.
It was a wonderful and yet humourous romance and it really set me up to like anything by Mr. Plakcy. So when the opportunity arose to read his story Three Wrong Turns in the Desert, I jumped at it. I was glued to the pages as Aida...more
Both main characters are awesome - I really couldn't decide who I like more and it's rarely for me )) The mystery part of the story was so engaging, I literally couldn't put my e-reader down, till I finished. And of course I loved the romantic part - both guys are really guys here: strong and not too prone to overly long relationship discussions and holding hands, but when they do hold hands - you believe them :) Great balance between comradery, partnership and growing feelings....more

Why I read it:
The author asked me to read and review this novel. I’d never read any of his books before but had heard good things about the Mahu Mysteries series.
Aidan came to Tunisia to reinvent himself after his boyfriend dumped him. He meets bodyguard and ex-SEAL Liam and ends up in one big adventure with him, due to an...more
There's lots of action in this, and the pacing is nice. The characters are fairly believable, although Liam is kind of a jerk in the first part. I really felt he was using Aiden for a long time and it took him saying so...more
I didn't like the amount of time Aiden spent second-guessing his decisions, his lifestyle, his past, his relationship with Liam, his future, etc. I think the story could have been told with less pages. There were times when I just used speed reading through...more

I really loved this story. It grabbed you from the start and kept you reading like a good story should. I had a couple of disbelieving moments, but nothing so strong it threw me out of the story. Though, I have to say the (view spoiler)[callous way Liam approached adding anthrax to the air system, having the potential to harm hundreds, even allies and friends and not just the terrorist/terrorists in training, was totally appalling. Yes, it was a me...more
I was so surprised by this book, I thought it was be a bit cheesy and a bit of a romp in the sand. What I got was a smart funny story that took me on a journey around Tunisia that was also a sexy romp in the sand. I loved Liam he was strong and sexy but was not with out a gentle side and Aidan was a real surprise. I loved that he was intelligent and resourceful and that Liam took his ideas and ran with them was great. I will be honest I don't thin...more
