U.S. Marshal Wyatt Tanning has been on the hunt for a killer on the run in Turks and Caicos. A week into the investigation, he has absolutely nothing to show for his efforts. Feeling defeated he returns to Castillo Resort to drown his frustrations. There he meets UFC fighter, Rye Daniels. Now the resort’s bartender, Rye recognizes a man that has been beaten down, but he also senses a shared attraction that is hard to ignore. Wyatt might not be ready to step out from behind the shadow of lies, but Rye will stop at nothing to unleash the beast within.

My goodness! Can I just steal a line from the movie The Mask? Smoken!

My second book by Kennedy is of a different theme and genre all-together. I haven’t tried and Male/Male romance before but wow! Do esshe know how to make a girl need to fan herself.
Wyatt Tanning is a US Marshall on the hunt for a killer on the island of Turks and Caicos.  His life doesn’t consist of much romance because he’s always traveling and working, he even enlists in a matchmaker to help him find his ultimate match.

After the trail for his killer run into a dead end, Wyatt heads to a local high society hotel to crash for the night. This is where he runs into Rye an attractive ex UFC fighter with all the charm and dominant appeal. The chemistry between them in undeniable and this is when things start to heat up.

As I said before this was my first try for the m/m erotica romance genre but these two boys have some awesome chemistry and passion. This is a short novella and I don’t want to give away anymore, but this is one hot read! Kennedy really creates intense moments between the two characters, which leave you breathless. Takedown is a short read that will defiantly leave you wanting more.

This is an adult book, which carries explicit sexual content, harsh language and since this is a male/male sexual story some may find it not to their liking.
