Why I read this book: After reading the synopsis it sounded like I would enjoy it.
The Stripper Ripper is stalking the streets of New York City, preying on male strippers, and the press is making mincemeat of a helpless police force.
In desperation, the police refer the serial killer’s case to the Slayers, a team of enhanced, undercover super soldiers. The commander of the Slayers puts his team on the streets to watch over the Ripper’s favorite targets.
One of these targets is Micah, a twink stripper and a desirable sub. Micah’s baby sitter is one of the newest members of the Slayers, Sorren, as cold-blooded an assassin as they come, and the last person you’d expect to harbor feelings for his charge.
True to form, Sorren is as surprised as anyone at his new infatuation, but Micah is hiding something. Will Micah learn to trust his protector, or is he destined to be the next victim on the Stripper Ripper’s list?
Sorren was part of a special ops. He was involved in an experiment to make disposable soldiers by the use of nanos. Nanos are tiny robots that can alter you in different ways. Sorren’s nanos made him bigger, smarter and immortal. He is an emotionless killing machine. When the military no longer needed this experiment they decided to terminate all the nano enhanced soldiers. Luckily Delano saved them all before this could happen and formed his own team of undercover soldiers called the Slayers.
Sorren was put on a mission to protect a certain type of stripper from a serial murderer known as the Stripper Ripper. The Stripper Ripper brutally attacks and kills his victims. Sorren’s was in charge of watching and protecting a stripper named Micah.
Micah is young and beautiful. He has a perfect stripper body, stunning eyes and gorgeous black hair with blue streaks. He loves to dance and enjoys stripping. That is, until a crazy murderer started threatening strippers like him. Micah knows someone has been following him but has never seen their face. He is afraid he is the next victim.
When dire circumstances avail, Micah is thrown into things he can’t comprehend. This is where he meets Sorren, the biggest and most handsome man he has ever seen. He is drawn to Sorren, not really understanding why the pull is so strong but for some reason he feels safe when he is around. The feelings are not one sided as Sorren has a strange attraction to Micha. The twink dancer is the opposite of the tall muscular types he usually prefers. As they spend time with one another Micah ends up putting a kink in Sorren’s Indestructible armor.
But with all the secrets that Micah and Sorren both have hidden can they learn to trust each other? Will the Stripper Ripper reach Micah or can Sorren’s and the Slayers catch him in time? Does Sorren have the capability to feel and love once again?
Stalked was an entertaining book. It was a little hard to get into at first but once I did it was able to hold my attention and enjoy the story. The BDSM is milder than I expected. The sex was hot. The characters are well-developed.
If you like suspense, sci-fi, and light BDSM then you will enjoy Stalked by H.C. Brown
