An Ashlez Review: Cold Light – Criminal Delights: Assassins by Michelle Frost

Rating : 4 stars out of 5

Being an assassin wasn’t something Lexington Campbell ever envisioned for himself, but after spending eight years doing just that, he’s prepared to take his place at the table of his father’s motorcycle club, The Iron Heretics.

Arden spends his nights dancing on stage at Spritz, one of St. Louis’s hottest night clubs, and waiting for Lex to pass back through town. After being orphaned young, he fears letting himself get too attached to the distant, bearded Lex, even after three years of inviting the man into his bed.

When Lex finds himself with a price on his head, he unknowingly pulls Arden into the darkness with him. When things aren’t what they seem, and enemies abound, will they find themselves still standing together in the cold light of day?

This book is part of CRIMINAL DELIGHTS. Each novel can be read as a standalone and contains a dark M/M romance.
Warning: These books are for adult readers who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurry. High heat, twisted and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted.

Okay, I had one issue with this book – I LOVE MM reads and this one was steamy and really exciting and entertaining – but I HATE when in MM books literally every other character is gay, that doesn’t sit with me – one friend, maybe a GROUP of friends but legit almost everyone .. no it’s not believable… that being said…
Lex was all growly and sexy, his character developed amazingly and he was right on track by the end of the book, I love the protectiveness and the sweetness too and Arden was just adorable even though I kept reading his name as Adrien (especially during the yelling parts), he seems very femme and honestly I pictured like a long haired Fabio goddess yet not all buff.
Overall great story, fast paced, lots of action and a bit of MC in it, lots of will this happen, will that happen, wasn’t as dark as I was initially anticipating given some of the criminal delights book but it’s definitely a good read.
Cover – honestly love it – the ominous feeling you get when you look at it, and the delicious side profile

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
