My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Having thoroughly enjoyed Code Red I was very happily surprised to see that there would be a second book in the series as I’d not really picked up on any vibes from any of the other characters for a return.
Well, I’m very glad that Nic saw something in the relationship between singer and songwriter Jeremy and Head of Security Steve because Code Blue is a beautiful romance, filled with all the feels, some angst, a lot of plot tension and a wonderful ending.
On the way I will admit there were moments when I was shaking my head thinking not sure that’s actually possible even with the best hacking skills in the world, (plot point not relationship) but I just let it go and it works within the narrative.
I loved how this isn’t an easy journey for either of the two men, Jeremy’s never been attracted to a man before and he can’t understand his feelings, while Steve’s got lots of hidden traumas from an incident when he was younger.
But, together they just work and, as they navigate the attraction between them, the stalker plot plays out alongside their growing feelings and it totally worked for me.
While it’s only low/medium steamy, everything was still full of great emotional connectivity and a lot of vulnerability from both men and it definitely had me going awwww a lot!
I’m not going to go into too much detail but I really loved seeing how this played out and I think it had an ending which fit well.
