Original Title Dangerous Ground (Dangerous Ground, #1)

The aptly named Dangerous Ground is a story of two men who are trying to keep hold of a desirable relationship. The two are Special Agent partners who mesh well a a team. As the story moves forward we learn about their past and come to realize that there is, indeed, something to hold on to. Unfortunately, (or fortunately, if you like an element of instability in a story) the author keeps both men very precariously tip-toeing around their troubles.

At first, I was really only interested in one character getting what he wanted, needed. It seemed Taylor MacAllister had been suffering for some time and knew keenly what he was losing. I felt his pain.

Will Brandt is more interested in not losing a hard-wrought partnership at the risk of allowing deeper emotions to surface.

As the two, struggle along through a dangerous outdoor "adventure", they move from precipice to precipice in their emotional journey. They often look into a chasm of fear, at what they are so close to losing.

I found this a very interesting read and plowed right through it with barely a break. The writing engaged me, the characters had depth that was unexpected, and the sex was -- rewarding. By the end I was rooting for both to find Solid Ground.
