Tony and Ryan are not your typical gay couple. Although they are American, they are trained government agents living in Italy, and they’re on the lam. They are fugitives who are hiding from the very agency that trained them. Tony is 30, a physical trainer with a linebacker’s build. He fears no one, and takes very seriously his responsibility of protecting his boy Ryan. Rya ...more

I am sure that the not so rave reviews is all because of me. Maybe I am just not in the mood. The truth is, I just don't get it. There is something missing from the story; I cannot feel any emotional connection with the characters. I feel like I'm being shoved into a scene that has already been introduced somewhere else, that the introduction of Ryan's family as (CMIIW) secret agents is so out of the blue. Even after Ryan is hurt, all I feel is bored out of my mind. I skip pages until the end an ...more

Tony and Ryan are an endearing though unlikely couple. Tony’s a few years older than Ryan. He’s masculine and rugged, and a tad arrogant. Contrarily, Ryan is softer and far more sensitive. Ryan has a very big heart, and he appears almost a bit too naïve and trusting .

While vacationing in Napoli, Italy, Ryan is victimized by a group of American tourists. They target Ryan because he is gay, and they brutally beat him and leave him for dead. When Tony finds Ryan and realizes what has happened to hi

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the previous one. From the start, I kept thinking that I missed reading prior books in the series. The story moved along nicely, but it was a little disappointing that Ryan's problems seemed to be fixed in basically one conversation. I expected a bit more to be involved with him accepting things and his emotional recovery. I would be interested and look forward to learning more about the other brothers and their back stories.
Lovers Tony and Ryan are government agents living in Italy. The story starts out quite hot if a bit mushy and then one of the men is nearly killed in a gay bashing. Now his lover has to find a way to deal with his own guilt and his lover's trauma all while trying to get his own brand of justice for the crime. There is violence and a lot of angst in this one but was overall a nice story.
I read it through in one go. I think I deserve a reward!

Too fast, too short.
Dont give up on Michele if you read this one first, Caged was one of my favorite books of 2011 and it is book #2 in the Lethal Obsession Series.

TONY AND RYAN is a 58 pages read that is a first for me, first as in this is the story of one of the characters from a main book that has not been released as yet. Yup, new for me.

The blurb sums up most of what is in the book so I wont go through all that. I read this book because I has a wonderful time with Ms. Montgomery first book and as such it was no hardship to read TONY AND RYAN. The book starts off with a rather sweet gushy scene between Tony and Ryan the two main protag and by the time

Tony & Ryan was a little difficult read to wrap my mind around; at first I thought it was a book in a series and maybe the problem was I hadn’t read the previous books, but I did a quick search on the net and discovered instead this is book 1 in a new series, Lethal Obsession. That made me ponder on the novella: the feeling was really like some of those Christmas novella authors write with their favorite characters from a series gathering all together for some happy event; it’s something qui ...more

This book was great. I loved the way the characters were brought to life. I am a total sucker for sweet hot romance so I was pulled in at the beginning. This story Is part of the Lethal Obsession series. Lethal obsession isn’t like most series where you have to read in a particular order, its one where some of the characters intertwine. I think Tony and Ryan sort of set the mood of the series and is a very good place to start. It’s short and well written. It left me begging for more. Which I got ...more
I thought I'd missed a few previous books in this series as much of the first half of the book was taken up with the established couple shagging and a whole lot of complicated back story I'm still not sure I understand. But apparently, this is the first in the series which makes no sense whatsoever.

There is heaps of context missing in the dynamics here despite that very complicated info dump. Lots of characters, lots of past issues that affected this situation that I was missing. It's a shame b

I am amazed that this is the First book in a series. It seemed like a lot of information was missing; I never had a clear idea of who the MCs or the supporting characters were. I picked up more background information from the blurb and Jeff Erno's review than I did the actual book. I am at a loss as to how the brothers could kill (it was implied that the attackers were killed) American tourists in Italy as most tourists don't hang around any one spot for too long before heading back home. On a p ...more

Books like this make me wonder how I'm unpublished. Sure, the opening scene was potentially steamy but... too soon. The loving platitudes were extremely over the top. And then you add in a hurried bit of back story that was nebulous and difficult to follow. All within the first chapter! Perhaps the story gets better, maybe not. I'm not gonna waste my time to find out.

This is a series. Book 1 but almost felt like there should have been another book first to fill in the blanks about why they were on the run. Good story line involving gay bashing and strong love will get you through it.

I'm sorry. I really, really hate giving one star reviews. I think I've only done it one other time, but if you read my status updates I give my reasons why. Some are direct quotes, and some are apporoximations of quotes. I feel bad giving this a one star, but I just didn't like it at all.

I live my life believing. I believe that all of us can do anything we want to do. I believe that each goal we set for ourselves can be met if we strive to meet that goal, no matter what bumps we have to jump over to attain it.

I don't believe in fear I believe in the power of love.

Fear has the power to stop me, to control me and lead me to failure.
Love has the power to guide me over the most dif
