Book Review: 'Not That Type of Guy' by Sara York
Sara York lives in the southern United States and writes constantly – the number of volumes increases practically by the month. Her genre: romance of all types and in this novel she opens some windows to gay life – with a special examination of the world of male assassins. As she has stated, ‘I’ve spent over 300 hours in police, FBI, crime, and medical classes learning techniques. I’ve gone to workshops presented by ex-assassins. That is one o f the reasons Sara’s book ring so true – her thought and investigation into her subject matter.
When an author can create as much tension in introducing a character in a tangled situation as Sara can, we know we are in for a steamy ride. ‘Aiden froze. The extensive [stuff] he’d suffered through in SEAL training, and then with the CIA, helped him keep his cool as the guy invaded his space. And so we are into the story. ‘When CIA assassin Aiden Jackson is trapped between a bathroom wall and a hard man, he chooses the hard man, much to his surprise. Aiden doesn’t want to admit he’s gay, but his first stumble into man love leaves him disoriented, searching for answers and desperate to find the truth. He covers his real desires by dating an ultra-hot girl, but it’s the guy sitting a few tables away that draws his attention. Super nice and attractive Doctor Trace Williams is so special he seems like an angel to Aiden. Their first kiss blows Aiden away. That Trace sees into his soul, even when Aiden is trying to hide everything, pisses him off. Aiden needs Trace in his life, but once Trace finds out the truth about Aiden’s job, will they have any part of their relationship left? What would you do if your lover ripped apart the very foundation of what you believed?’
Blend MM romance, mystery and the challenge of coming out in with a military overhead and you have another very erotic novel by Sara York. Grady Harp, July 17
