#Review: Eyes Only – H. K. Sterling
Sometimes, the past can never remain buried. This is a lesson Ike learns all too well when an unexpected reporter comes knocking on his door. The man has good intentions, or so it seems, but he’s bitten into more than he can chew. Determined to offload the secrets he’s come across, the man hopes he can do him justice by making everything go away. The question is, how much does know?
Refusing to let matters lie as they are, Ike pries into the man’s supposed secrets. He needs to know just how much he knows, as it will determine what he needs to do with him once all is said and done. Part of him knows that he shouldn’t concern himself with the reporter. That he should walk away, and let him have his just desserts. Unfortunately, he knows he can’t.
As the secrets of his past come to light, Ike soon realizes that he’s never truly covered his tracks from the get-go. He recalls his past jaunt with the lovely Isla, and the chaos that ensued. The past needs to be pushed back into the supposed box the man found it in. Deep inside, he knows just how hard it was for him to walk away from things so long ago. Most especially when he found his heart wanting.
A quick and quite intriguing read, Eyes Only delves into the life of a covert operative who allowed his heart to lead him so long ago. I found the story itself to be a little touching, though I do think it might have gone a little better had it been much longer. Still, we do get a good glimpse into the world H. K. has created for her characters. I think you’ll enjoy this little tidbit, and knock it out in one sitting.
Available for purchase via the following retailers:
In the shadowy world of covert operations it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad. Is there even room for romance? Sometimes romance fits in only too well.
Read along with the twists and turns of “Eyes Only” where trust is a rare commodity and you’ll never know which side to root for until the very end.
