Pros & Cons of Deception by AE Wasp
Pros & Cons #2
Spy Romance M/M
March 1, 2019
If you’re a fan of the mid to late spy shows, you would probably like Pros & Cons. It’s such a fun series in such a similar (and yes, more modern) way. I mean, it’s pretty much a genderbent reimagined version of Charlie’s Angels, and call me a sucker, but…
I used to love that show!
In this version, our new Charlie has pulled together a group of criminal’s who all have big hearts. The first book, Pros and Cons of Vengeance was about Steele and Breckin, and this installment is all about Wesley Bond. He shares his name with action super sexy super spy James Bond, but our Bond is more of a snarky super hacker with slightly low self esteem. He was also my favorite character in book one. I was excited to read him in Deception.
One thing I always pay attention to when I’m reading a series is how well the characters maintain their personalities throughout each book. If each character still reads the same after multiple books, I consider that great writing. It shows how the author truly knows their characters, and doesn’t compromise. Sadly, I felt like Wes lost a bit of what made him so interesting when he was introduced to us originally. It was there when I started reading, but falling for Danny took over his personality.
I missed him, I missed his individuality.
In book one, it was oh so obvious Wesley was going to fall in love with ex-hooker Danny. There was way too much bickering between them for it to be anything but foreplay. I just expected Danny to make him work for it harder. Wesley was such an epic douche when they first met, and said such boneheaded asshole things, I wanted to see him really work to win Danny over.
Was I disappointed they fell for each other pretty quickly? Yeah, maybe a little bit. I’m all about the slow burn. However, what made up for it was how I appreciated that Danny knew what -well, WHO he wanted, and he went for it despite everything. While all that was happening we got hilarious jokes from the other “Angels” as they put in their two cents. I loved their commentary on Wes and Danny’s love life.
Pros and Cons is funny. It is fun.
It’s a great series for needing to rid your head of cobwebs.
This was another amazing find on Kindle Unlimited.
