Deadly Lies - Deadly Sugar Book 2

After being betrayed by his husband in the most unimaginable way, Josh has only three things on his mind; grab his son, find help, and get out. When Josh can't get to his son the plan to save them both becomes a little more complicated.

But things are not always as they appear. A chance encounter gives Josh hope but it also raises a lot of questions. Can Josh get away from his husband with his son and sanity intact? The things revealed will change the future for everyone.

Body of Work - Cold Fingers Book 2

Life with Vic isn't exactly what Christopher Minnick was expecting. His boyfriend has given him a new lease on life - literally - but he doesn't have a job, Jessie thinks he's a ghost, and there are only so many closets on hand for shoving Jonathan into. Now, with Lee back in the limelight, things just might become more than Christopher can handle.

Lee Hellstrom is hitting the big screen after more than three decades and, with the much younger Grant Cooper at his side on the red carpet, he plans to make a lasting impression. The only problem is that not all the attention Lee has drawn is good.

When Lee goes missing, it's up to Christopher, Vic and Grant to save the old man from a most horrible of fates.

Christopher's life may not have been perfect, but his death is a pain in the ass.

When the authors told me they were writing a second volume of Buried Desires, I won't say I was entirely delighted. I'm not a fan of horror. I avoid horror movies; I don't read horror. I have a way too vivid imagination, and the only way I got through the horror movies I have seen was to do something else at the same time and then not sleep for weeks!

For all of that, I love everything Ofelia Gränd and Amy Spector write - individually and together - and their horror stories are no exception. I love that they both have such distinct styles. Ofelia's is heavy on the psychological thriller elements and explores the sinister side of human nature; Amy's is more Hammer House with a great deal of dark humour.

As this is Buried Desires 2, we are treated to the continuation of Jett and Josh's story in Deadly Lies, and more of Christopher and Vic in Body of Work.

I've got to say, Deadly Lies is terrifying, and I spent much of it saying 'Nooooo! Don't do that!' because it has those wonderful illogical actions not only common to all horror stories, but to any moment in our lives when rationality goes flying out the window. The resolution is  utter perfection.

Body of Work is less terrifying, but there are still plenty of moments of suspense. I just love the droll humour and I could actually read about Christopher Minnick forever.

Better than that, there are two bonus stories attached to this volume, and they're brilliant, too.
