Review completed January 13, 2012Fair Game is a prime example why I love to read M M novels Wow These are the reading moments I live for Did I say that I loved it After sustaining a terrible knee injury, former FBI agent Elliot Mills is now a college history professor As much as Elliot enjoyed teaching, he had loved law enforcement and he had always loved believing that he was making a difference in the world He truly enjoyed setting right a few wrongs However, instead of accepting a desk job, h [...]

  5. Please don t slam a corkscrew into my throat, ladies Oh, and could you drop that penknife That anvil you re about to use to drown me Honestly, it ll ruin your back And I did like Fair Game I really did It s another decent formulaic mystery romance by Lanyon I don t mean formulaic in a bad way here It s great to know what to expect, and does Lanyon ever disappoint However, compared to the Adrien English series, Fair Game didn t make much of an impression on me That would have been spectacular any [...]


  6. Officially a Josh Lanyon fan I know, I am late to the party I can t believe I enjoy mysteries that much How about adding a little bit romance next time, Mr Lanyon heheRead this, you won t regret it.

THIS WAS AMAZING A M A Z I N G 5 HUGE AWESOME STARS I THINK I FOUND MYSELF A NEW FAVORITE AUTHOR AND I KNOW I LL BE READING HIS OTHER BOOKS ASAP HONESTLY I WISH THIS COULD BE A FIRST BOOK IN THE SERIES BECAUSE I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING TO SEE WHAT WOULD BE GOING ON LATER WITH THEM MUCHO SPOILERS AHEAD ABOUT THE STORYA young man has gone missing at the campus, so Elliot is asked to look into it as a favor from his father because he used to be an FBI agent But because of the injury he got on the line [...]

  9. This section of the review is entitled Elliot Mills, you giant sack of poo.Elliot, buddy, I mean it sincerely when I say I love you but if you say there s nothing but sex and Nissans between you Tucker one time, I m planning on borrowing the nearest penis making violent love to him myself You ask yourself, how the hell could you be homesick for a place that had never been home Um, cause you love him Cause he was your home Maybe DUR You seem to come to your senses by the end of the novel, but I [...]


  10. Posted at Shelf Inflicted Surrounded by glistening pine trees, enveloped by rain and fog, for the first time it occurred to Elliot that his extended period of solitude just might be turning to loneliness I abandoned the Adrien English mysteries after the second book because I tired of Jake s assholery Now that I ve finished Fair Game in just one sitting, I m starting to regret that decision I d forgotten how good a writer Josh Lanyon is and how much fun it is to read a light mystery with two see [...]


  11. 3,5 rounded to 3 starsThis is my first book by Josh Lanyon Mostly I enjoyed his writing style, BUT the first half of the book was too slow paced for my taste Don t get me wrong, I love to play detective, suspect them ALL, find new clues, but the romance played such a little part in this.So this story had a lot of mystery, a serial killer, a terrifying crimes game and some unexpected hot scenes The problem is I m not really fond of this kind of broken relationships, when the men meet again after [...]


  12. I Loved this The mystery kept me guessing and i liked it At first i thought the mystery will be over quickly then there was a twist and i was like Thats when i started picturing Criminal minds and the book got interestingElliot and Lance were great together Yeah Elliot murmured What I want, really want, is to be fucked I want you to fuck me Oh God, Tucker muttered I want that I don t think a week goes by I don t dream about it The way it feels to move inside you The way your body grabs on like t [...]


  13. RATING 5 This is how M M should be read Hearts 3 DYou know you ve picked up a great book when every aspect of it instantly draws you in, completely consumes your day and night, and doesn t let go even long after the last page is turned Ecstatically, Josh Lanyon s Fair Game captivates from beginning to end, an ex FBI agent turned history professor forced to work with his ex lover to stop the victimization of young men midst the unraveling of a killer s sick mind games before he himself becomes a [...]


  14. The concept of audiobooks is such a great one, isn t it Convenient You can listen to books when you don t have the hands free to be reading them And if you re one with a long commute or loads of laundry to do or cooking dinner, its awesome.Except for the fact that I ve noticed most audiobooks are 10 hours long And, well, I don t have a car My commute is a 15 minute walk or 2 subway stops I am forced to send my laundry out no laundromat nearby and, erm, my cooking typically consists of 2 minutes [...]


  15. I have a confession to make I like Elliot and Tucker than Jake and Adrien Or at least than I liked Jake and Adrien at the end of book 1 of the Adrien English series.Now now, no need to grab the pitchforks I did end up really liking the Adrien English series eventually, though it took me a while to buy Jake and Adrien as a couple But I couldn t help but compare the two couples, because I just recently finished the Adrien English series.There are a lot of similarities between the two pairs One s [...]


  16. 3.5 starsThis is definitely a case of it s me and not the book It was good overall, I just personally found it to be a little slow I had to cheat at the halfway point and look ahead to see if anything was ever going to happen with the romance, because I was getting bored I didn t mind that the book focused on the mystery, but for some reason I didn t find that part of the storyline to be all that riveting I liked the Puget Sound backdrop and the two main characters I liked it, just didn t love [...]


  17. BR with Sofia, Rosa, Therese Josh Lanyon s books and me are fully compatible We are harmonised together We were born to match each other optimally In Fair Game Josh Lanyon combined skillfully as always an exciting criminal case with the personal fate of its protagonists The whole story was spiced up with a pinch of subtle humor, that made the reading even pleasurable for me The well written mystery kept the pages turning Josh Lanyon managed to maintain consistent tension up to the last chapter [...]


  18. I m really enjoying revisiting this series My original review stands Original Review From 19 Jan 2014 I ve read a couple of Josh Lanyon s short stories and enjoyed them quite a lot and so bought Fair Game the other day to try I loved it It was action packed and suspenseful and Elliot and Tucker obviously had some unresolved issues that needed dealing with.I loved the story and the suspense The antagonist was camouflaged pretty well, I thought, and what a sick sick person it was, too And it gave [...]


  19. Holy shit I actually loved it Admittedely, the mystery totally overshadows the romance, but A it s a very well crafted, nail biting mystery plot and B the romance is there, and it burns so slow.I m definitely reading the rest of the series.


  20. This is why Lanyon is one of my favorite authors ever Fair Game has everything I look for in a novel good standalone plot, good mystery that I didn t solve until just before the MC did, good sexual tension, good sex, good suspense, several viable suspects, a reasonable reason for the MC to get involved in a case, good suspense and action, individual characters, strong women characters, and lots of danger and near death and oh my God I was so scared I d lose yous to make me ecstatic It was so goo [...]


  21. it s re read time to prepare for Fair Chancemy original review from 4 September 2015oh so, so great Absolutely loved it No one can spin it like Josh Lanyon, perfect concise, the pacing is so good I couldn t put it down Fascinating mc the best supporting characters I m going to run out of adjectives before I can finish describing how fantastic this book was.


  22.

  23. This book is getting a sequel Hallelujah Because this is my favourite Josh Lanyon book so far, I feel like I must write a review for this But I am unable to write something that would sum up my feelings for this one I read it before I reviewed books Back then I was unsure of what I liked or didn t like in m m But I soon found this was the epitome of what I love in an m m thriller It was also what I love in second chance stories There was just something beautiful about this book and the writing t [...]


  24. Surprisingly captivating and page turner.When I first decided to read this book, I thought it would be a classic MM one It wasn t The story was amazing and full of twists and surprises of the best kind.Former FBI agent Elliot is a University professor His knee injury left him out of field duty and he didn t even consider doing a desk job He left all that behind, including his maybe ex Tucker Some recent crimes , put him working together with Tucker and that changes everything for them.I don t wa [...]


  25. Rating 3.5 starsJosh Lanyon has a formula, and it works well You have the physically disabled, ex Fed and current college professor Elliot Elliot has been off the force for 17 months, ever since his knee cap got blown to smithereens and he had to get a prosthetic replacement During a normal day in his new life as a history professor, his father asks Elliot to unofficially take on the case of a family friend s missing son, who happens to go to the university that Elliot teaches at.And let s not f [...]


  26. Oh, this one was great alright Don t read a lot of M M books a few I have read are just a little too graphic for lil ol me But this one was fantastic The suspense was great it, kept us guessing right to the end Loved the 2 main characters Poor Elliot, the wounded hero, who had to leave his job when he was injured and start teaching at a local college And Tucker, you big sweetheart all tough, big guy but deep down he was a kitten Both had been hurt by the end of their original relationship, said [...]


  27. While this is another interesting and exciting Josh Lanyon mystery, there is very little relationship action between Elliot and Tucker.The mystery was great, I had no idea until the very end when Elliot figures it out lol But I really wanted interaction between Elliot and Tucker, and less focus on all the politics and stuff.Overall this is another great story, but I found myself struggling at times to stay focused More a 3.5ANothing much to add except I m curious view spoiler why did he make Te [...]


  28. For all intents and purposes Josh Lanyon does it again with this good mystery novel, interweaving the suspense with action, sexual tension and romance Rolling out the crime investigation, the interplay between the two MCs was evident, with neither ready to admit the underlying need for mutual assistance Rekindling of their relation, the tension, professional and sexual was steady and swift paced and made the investigation just icing on the cake Some say there were not a love story here, but ther [...]


  29. I m still giving 5 stars for the book, but the audio version well Sawyer Allerde wasn t the worst I ve heard but he sure added nothing to this book His inflection was non existent and even when the author says straight out she added dryly he still didn t bother He did not ruin the story for me but I admit that from view spoiler the time when Elliot wakes up in Tucker s apartment and they start their sexy times I read the rest myself After AE this is my favorite Josh Lanyon series, I really love [...]


  30. This was only my second read by Josh Lanyon, but it was enough to earn him a spot in my not so coveted, LOL list of favorite authors I just love his writing Elliot Mills is a former FBI agent who s trying to come to terms with his new life as a history teacher at Puget Sound University After being seriously injured in the line of duty, he couldn t deal with the idea of a desk job so he chose to quit the Bureau along with the man he loved, Tucker Lance and leave his career in law enforcement behi [...]
