Book review: What Chris Wants (novella, Men who Walk the Edge of Honor) by Lori Foster
When the going gets tough, the tough turn to Chris Chapey. As the right-hand man to a group of take-no-prisoners mercenaries, Chris can organize a top secret rescue mission with his eyes closed. But when it comes to his personal life, Chris is the one who needs a little help.
His problem: Matt Houser. Chris can’t deny his attraction to Matt, but Matt has no idea what Chris’s job really entails and how much it means to him. Matt challenges Chris to change his life—and make a place for him in it. Can Chris risk telling him the truth?
Look for more titles in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series available now from Lori Foster and Harlequin HQN: A Perfect Storm, Savor the Danger, Trace of Fever and When You Dare.
If you have been reading this series you know who Christ Chapey is. Chris is introduced in the first book in this series. He's kind of Dare MacIntosh's right hand man. He runs everything in the background and he's damn good at his job. Thing is his job requires absolute discretion and secrecy. That means have a love interest to a certain degree is out. Matt Houser is his love interest in this novella. We meet him in book two when he give Priss (Trace's love interest) a make over. Both are frustrated. Chris because he can't tell Matt exactly what he does for a living and Matt because he can't seem to get past the walls Chris has to find out what's going on and why he's being kept at arms length away. This is a short 4 chapter novella but it nicely wraps up Chris's story a bit and you get to see the characters from the 4 previous full size books. Lori Foster has said she's never done a M/M books but i think she did a nice job with this novella. I think a lot of her readers were thrilled to see it and i would be one of those. Nicely done! Felt like a reunion with a bonus! 4 out of 5 stars! I hate to see the series end but this was a great way to end it.
