What is more dangerous than a lie?... The truth.

Doctor Joeseph Demitri has met the man of his dreams, his practice is just getting on its way and happiness seems an attainable goal. When his former lover, Andy resurfaces and works his way back into his and Charles' life, he knows the man holds the power to destroy the life he's building.

Even as the two men discuss marriage, Charles is getting closer and closer to the truth. One question remains, will the truth bring them together, or will it be the final blow to their love?

I wanted Joe's story and boy did I get it!

In the space of three days, I’ve read the entire Men of Danger series by Blake Deveraux. Was it worth my time? Absolutely. I can’t think of better characters to sit with for a few hours. I got wrapped up in them, wanted to hug all of them, and thought about them long after I closed the book. Dangerous Deceptions is the third book in the series and it was worth the wait. Joe and Charles needed their story told and I’m glad Mr Deveraux listened.

Dr Joe is a complex man. Most of the time he’s cold and distant. Then there’s Charles. The younger man has the power to draw Joe out of his shell. There’s a lot of love there in Joe and way more than meets the eye. I liked seeing him come into his own. I also liked how his secrets come out. Yes, there are secrets, but the book wouldn’t be nearly as good without the angst.

Then there’s Charles. Back in Dangerous Liaisons, I wasn’t sure how I felt about him. He’s very moody and dramatic. But that’s his charm. He wears his heart on his sleeve. He cares deeply, even when he’s not sure what he’s caring about or how he’s supposed to deal with it. Seeing him in action made it easier to identify with him. Without giving spoilers, there’s a moment with Charles that made me cry a good cry.

As with the other books, there’s a bit of telling over the showing, but Mr Deveraux gets better with each book. This is probably my favorite of his tales. The sex is hot and there are secondary characters I’d love to get to know more. Andy should have a story if he doesn’t already. That guy needs his HEA. Plus, I’d love to see Quinton and Ben again for old time’s sake.

If you want a book, or rather a set of books, with characters you won’t forget, then this is the one for you. I recommend all three Men of Honor books.
