5 Star Review for Day and Knight by Dirk Greyson #MM #Paramilitary @dirkgreyson

Day and Knight

Title: Day and Knight
Author Name: Dirk Greyson
Publication Date & Length: May 4, 2015 – 184 pages

Synopsis

As former NSA, Dayton (Day) Ingram has national security chops and now works as a technical analyst for Scorpion. He longs for fieldwork, and scuttling an attack gives him his chance. He’s smart, multilingual, and a technological wizard. But his opportunity comes with a hitch—a partner, Knighton (Knight), who is a real mystery. Despite countless hours of research, Day can find nothing on the agent, including his first name!

Former Marine Knight crawled into a bottle after losing his family. After drying out, he’s offered one last chance: along with Day, stop a terrorist threat from the Yucatan. To get there without drawing suspicion, Day and Knight board a gay cruise, where the deeply closeted Day and equally closeted Knight must pose as a couple. Tensions run high as Knight communicates very little and Day bristles at Knight’s heavy-handed need for control.

But after drinking too much, Day and Knight wake up in bed. Together. As they near their destination, they must learn to trust and rely on each other to infiltrate the terrorist camp and neutralize the plot aimed at the US’s technological infrastructure, if they hope to have a life after the mission. One that might include each other.

Review
FiveStarsI have been wanting to read this series for a while now and today was the day to sit down and read book 1. The name of the book is pretty self explanatory considering the characters names are Day and Knight.

This is a book about two guys who work for the agency to bring down the bad and corrupt guys. Knight has been an agent for a while but has not done field work for over two years since he did not trust himself being in the filed after finding his wife and son murdered. But that is about to change and he is about to get a new partner that is a newbie to field work to boot. That is when Dayton enters his life and things start to quickly change for both of them.

I found this to be an exciting, adventurous, mysterious book. Things are happening and not enough clues to truly figure out exactly what the corrupt people are up but just enough information to know they are planning something big. I love how Day and Knight started out not so friendly but warmed to one another as time went on. Even at the end of the book they were still not all that close but they was starting to get there. It is just going to take time for that to happen. I also love that this book left off to where there is enough mystery to pick up in book two.

The chemistry between these two men is off the charts and I think as time goes on it is only going to get hotter. And hopefully they will continue to get closer. Cannot waiting read the next book in the series.

I loved this book. The story was great, there was a very interesting mystery to it, a lot of action, drama and of course it was steamy. The writing just grabbed my attention, it flowed so well throughout the book and kept my interest.

Day and Knight were a perfect combination, Day was the tech guy and Knight was the one who was a experienced field guy. They both had hard lives before they met. This made for a very interesting combination.  They definitely worked as a couple for work and home.

Can’t wait to read book 2 this is a series I definitely will follow.

I didn’t know until reading other reviews that this is a new pen name for Andrew Grey, as I’m a huge fan of Andrew Grey it’s no surprise that I loved this book. Day was just great and Knight grew on me after a while and I couldn’t wait for the end. This book was definitely action pack and the mystery was excellent. This book was a HFN type book and that was okay as Day and Knight definitely need more time to work on a relationship. Hopefully we can get a HEA in the next book. The story line was excellent and the writing was superb. I can’t wait to read the next in the series.

Review

 ThreeStarCovert operatives on a gay cruise – what’s not to like?  Sunshine, guns, tuxedos and explosions make for an exciting, rather steamy read.Greyson’s characters are endearingly troubled – Dayton is a closeted ex-NSA operative.  He is a workaholic computer expert.  Knighton is a burned out former marine grieving the loss of his wife and child.  The agency they work for remains mired in secrecy to the end of the story.  I like both men, but I felt they resolved some huge personal issues a little too quickly.

An ordinary cruise is a great backdrop for the subterfuge and covert-ops Knighton and Day are really working on.  I enjoyed the interactions between the operatives and the other passengers, especially Day’s ex-boyfriend Blaine.

I struggled with this book because it is uncomfortably close to Abigail Roux’s “Fish and Chips” in her Cut and Run series.  Not only do the characters have nearly identical jobs and histories, the plot of this story is far too similar for my liking.  This may be an awkward coincidence, but for me, Greyson’s book lacks the magic that makes Abigail Roux’s books m/m best-sellers.

This is a good story.  It kept my interest and made me smile.  But unlike its more famous rival,  I didn’t think it was a great story.
