A Review of "Eyes Only" by H. K. Sterling

What's New to Review ~ Wednesday (Week Long Special Edition)

Last night after reading "Eat Dessert First" and posting my review, I hopped in my bed, cuddled up with my Acer and settled in for my next exciting read. When I loaded my latest FLIRT, I immediately noticed the cover. Of all the Flirt categories, the covers for the Covert lines excite me the most. Dark and Burning... oh yeah! And with H. K. Sterling behind the wheel, I knew I was in for a treat. And, so are you!

The Book:

Released March 28, 2014, "Eyes Only" is the first and only Covert style Flirt that has been released from Breathless Press thus far. Coming in at just over 5k words, it was a short forty minute read, perfect for a lunch hour if you must travel to get your lunch. As you can see, this Covert imprint of the Flirt line is truly gorgeous. What exactly is the Covert line? Well, these are all stories of intrigue. Whether there is suspense, murder, or investigations; this line has it. And between this little story and her new series, H. K. Sterling seems to be dominating the line... and believe me, I couldn't be happier! I love the way this author can weave an assorted tale.

The Plot:

This particular short deals with an interrogation. In the military world, leaking information is a serious business. No matter how innocent you think it can be, there are always people that will use your relationship to progress their cause. This is the problem faced by a young Marine, and his account of the goings on that lead him to this inquisition. Details are a must, and Ms. Sterling provides this with little effort. And sometimes... not every loose end can be tied.

The Verdict:

Love, love, love... loved it! No death, no murder, no gore... just pure old fashion manipulation and interrogation. Great short story, and though it was short, it still felt complete. The ending was a twist that I never saw coming and I hope like hell that she puts out another in this line soon! Last review I was lucky to do for her, I claimed that she could very well be the next JD Robb. I stand behind my words. Even in this short, her true writing ability is amazing!  But, just to make it official....
It's a "Five Cups of Love" Read!
