4 Series Finale Stars

I’ve been waiting for over 5 long years for this last chapter in Will and Taylor’s saga, and though a reread would’ve served me well, who has the time for such? However, if you do have the fortitude and ambition to do so, I highly recommend it because often, my cobwebbed filled old brain just couldn't remember the finer details of the previous books and those could’ve, might’ve been helpful. By not doing so, I’m guessing my beer goggles allowed me to let some things slide…

Before you read this, to catch you up on a few events, you should probably read Blood Heat and Kick Start, the third and fifth books in the series. You should probably also read Dead Run because it is my favorite in the entire series.

Fans have been waiting for years for the conclusion of the wily misadventures of Will and Taylor.

I have no idea whether I’m glad or sad the series is over and while my ambivalence over Will and Taylor is subject to doubt, Lanyon’s writing certainly isn’t. The
All good things must come to an end.

And of course, we prefer it when good things come to a good end.

But that's not always possible, as we see here with Exhibit A: Blind Side.

If you’ve seen my enthusiastic and sometimes downright giddy reviews of the previous books in the series, you'll know that Will Brandt and Taylor MacAllister are one of my all-time favorite couples. I've indulged in multiple rereads of the five previous books as I waited -- as we all waited -- and waited -- and waited -- for

Of course, you never can tell what readers will think, but I'm very happy with how this one turned out. These guys would die for each other in a heartbeat--it's the living together forever that challenges them. But they're learning. And their love is all the stronger for the journey. I know it was tough on readers having to wait through so many postponements, but no regrets. This was not a story I wanted to rush--or characters I wanted to say goodbye to. ;-)
3.5 Stars

We waited a long time for this sixth and final book in Lanyon’s Dangerous Ground series—perhaps too long.

I remembered Will Brandt and Taylor MacAllister fondly, but I will admit that the details of their time together, and definitely the details of the cases they worked together in the first five books, completely went over my head when revisited here. There were names and past events being mentioned—relevant names and events, as it turned out—that I couldn’t place to save my life. And
So here we are, at the end of the series.
I don’t want to say that it was a disappointment, because there were things I liked, but it was certainly different.
Maybe it’s not that noticeable if you don’t read the series back to back, but after rereading the previous 5 books in the span of a few days, you can definitely tell that 6 years have passed between the writing of this book and the previous one.
The tone is different, but that would be nothing and could be chalked up to a different stylisti

4 Stars!

It was really nice visiting these men again and getting their HEA.

It took a REALLY long time for this author to bring the end to Will and Taylor's story. I had plenty of books to read while waiting, but still. Damn. In the end it is bittersweet. I feel like they could have had more stories come from them; especially having this new PI company. But some things must end, and unfortunately their story has. Sad.

I literally felt like I got emotionally gut punched when things turned south fo

Just the emotional punch I was looking for with a great ending!

This was nearly a perfect ending to this series. All the emotional leftovers were used to good effect, including Will SAYING SORRY. There was a small misunderstanding which was a lesson in authorial handing of misunderstanding -it was so totally Taylor. These guys have developed so consistently and deeply over this series,.
Plus there was a good mystery (though it involved a character I'd sadly forgotten from a previous volume). It didn't feel like a novella due to quite a complex story and leisu

The main plot is a convoluted mess of coincidences that strains believability if you think about it too much, but I don't care about that. I wanted two things from this book: justification for that "PI" spying on them in book 5, and for Will and Taylor to be left in a good place, and I got both. It was a bumpy road to that last one, but Josh made the journey to get there effective and personal to our MCs.

I'm not quite clear on the PI thing but what I think happened was (view spoiler)

You should do a re-read before starting this final installment. I plan do this asap and enjoy back to back full immersion. 😁 The more I read the more came back, sort of, but I still enjoyed this!

Taylor and Will just landed a big contract which will help them pay back their debt. Buuut, Taylor's college boyfriend, Ashe, shows up asking for help. Will thinks there is something wrong with Ashe and the situation, and do
I wish I could have read it some years ago- what was not possible of course: there are almost 6 years between the publication dates of the book #5 and the book #6.

My taste in books has been changed since then. I don't enjoy MM romance books as much as I did at the time of my discovery of the genre.

I didn't remember all the details from the previous installments, but I remembered pretty well that I didn't feel like I necessarily needed a sequel to the book #5 . I considered it as the last book

And with this we came to the end. I liked this one but I felt the characters voices were a bit different. It was only to expect because so much time has passed since book 5 was wrote, and the author's style has changed. It wouldn't been so disconcerting at first if book 6 took place some time later, but only weeks had passed since we left them in book 5, so it was a bit disconcerting at first.

I just realized I never finished reviewing this series...grrrrr. Three weeks and 13 books later is way too much for my memory, but I will say I did not have the problems with this finale that a lot of readers did. But I can also see why it would have been a disappointment after waiting SIX YEARS!!! What an interesting writer you are, Josh Lanyon.

I actually considered stopping after Book 5 since there were such mixed reviews on this one, but the guys didn't quite feel settled enough for me to be

A Joyfully Jay review.

5 stars

If we know anything about these gentlemen, it’s that their past (especially past boyfriends) tend to turn up at the most inopportune of times. By default then it’s no wonder the emotional tie between Taylor and Will is so strong if we go by the fact that their exes have such a difficult time giving them up. It’s Taylor’s turn and his first boyfriend from college, Ashe Dekker, has shown up out of the blue asking for help. It seems some squatter has taken over Ashe’s

I'm sad to see Will and Taylor's time with us at an end but I'm happy that their final story was so full of angst and drama. I did want to smack each of them upside the head a few times but communication is key and their commitment to that is what saved their relationship.

Kudos to Josh Lanyon for a lovely finale. If you've followed these guys at all, don't miss this chance for a revisit.
I avidly read the first five books in the "Dangerous Ground" series and loved Will and Taylor. But having read the other books quite a while back, I was at a loss regarding past cases and character quirks as I dove into "Blind Side" and would have liked a bit more of their history and background in this book just to bring readers up to date. Eventually, enough came back to me that I finished the book satisfied with the status of Will and Taylor's relationship.

Along the way, I grew extremely fru

Full disclosure - I’m a huge fan of Josh Lanyon’s work. Some of the first m/m romance and mystery novels I ever read were Lanyon’s Adrien English Mysteries and The Holmes & Moriarity Mysteries.

Lanyon’s novels never disappoint. Blind Side (Dangerous Ground 6) is no exception.

Blind Side features former Diplomatic Security Service agents and newly established security consultants Will Brandt and Taylor MacAllister who clearly have a history together. While that history is summarized throughout Bli

Once again these characters put my heart through the grinder but I loved every minute of it!
The ending left me happy, soft and satisfied 🌊💙💙🌲
It's been a bumpy road for these two, and this episode is another bumpy ride. A fitting series finale, where fears and issues (and exes) are recognized and confronted. And if not all is completely resolved, the guidelines are in place. I have great affection for these two and look forward to future glimpses/codas. P.S. There's more than a bit of tension and suspense packed into this novella.
Danielle  Gypsy Soul
I have always loved Will and Taylor and they are two characters that really stuck with me. There is always plenty of action, suspense and feelings in these books. These two are such guys sometimes and the fact that they still have trouble communicating is at times frustrating but also feels realistic to me. This books runs you through quite a bit of emotion for such a short book but wrapped up in a way that I loved. A fitting end to the series but I will definitely miss these guys and I'm sad to ...more

I enjoyed this completion of the series. It's been so long since I read the other books in the series that I had forgotten a few details. Most everything came back though and I quickly fell in to pattern with these two. The mystery was interesting and I really enjoyed their hea. I'm glad the author provided this wrap up.

A tension filled mystery finishing up a great series.

Taylor and Will have been together for five years (as work partners and then lovers). The boys have left the diplomatic service, but venturing into private security consulting isn't all its cracked up to be. Taylor is easily distracted when Ashe, an old boyfriend, shows up asking for help...Sure, there are mixed signals and inconsistencies, but clearly Ashe is terrified and needs assistance...what could go wrong? Will can think of a thousand t
Aleana Joy Pearson
Not as good as I thought it would be. Taylor was just in denial and stubborn.
Enjoyable conclusion to the series, though not quite as resolved in terms of relationship issues as I'd have liked. I felt like the same issues from all the other books were present here and I honestly didn't feel like they'd resolved them in a really meaningful way. Still had the impression that Will wasn't quite as appreciative of Taylor as he should have been, and though I did like that he owned his past mistakes, as I said, I didn't end the book really feeling as resolved as I would have lik ...more
