Blog Tour Review: A Dangerous Dance by Davidson King

A Dangerous Dance 
(Haven Hart Universe #3)
by Davidson King
Release Date: July 17, 2018
Genre: M/M Romance, Suspense

Finally working for a man he can trust has given Bill a new purpose. His boss, Christopher Manos, commands respect and absolute loyalty, and Bill has proven himself worthy of a seat at Christopher’s table. Becoming best friends with Christopher’s husband, Snow, has further proven his allegiance and cements a place for him in the Manos family. When Snow’s life is in danger, Christopher places his full trust in Bill to destroy anything and anyone that poses a threat to his husband. But hunting and wiping out the enemy for the safety of everyone Bill cares about means partnering with the one person he has vowed to never see again.

Mace wears a mask of vain cockiness and uses his model good looks to his full advantage. Known to many as Without a Trace Mace, he’s a deadly assassin well known for wiping out whole families and getting away without a trace. With a dangerous past and an unknown future, Mace uses his veil of conceit to keep others at a distance, rarely trusting anyone. When his boss, Black--the one man he trusts above all others—gives him his next assignment, he learns his newest partner is none other than Bill, the man he’d do anything to avoid.

With the safety of the Manos family on the line at the hands of a brilliant maniac, Bill and Mace begrudgingly put their differences aside to ensure Snow, and his loved ones, are protected from harm. With their lives in grave danger and the clock ticking towards zero hour, they navigate deathly perilous situations and uncertain outcomes, hoping they survive long enough to keep the Manos family safe.

Bill and Mace’s traitorous hearts draw them closer together no matter how hard they fight the inevitable. With the lives of their loved ones hanging in the balance, they find themselves in the middle of a dangerous dance. But when the music stops, will they both be left standing?

This is my favourite of this series so far. The pairing between an Mace, an assassin and Bill, a mafia thug is perfection. Author tends to pair assassin with goody people and I'm glad to see that Bill got someone who is as scary as him. 

I don't remember Bill hating Mace in Hug It Out, when Bill got partnered up with Mace for a mission, his disdained for the man was surprising. I find that Mace is pretty chill about everything, but can be irritating as fuck at the same time and Bill can't stand him. Bill is more straight laced in a thuggish way, while Mace seems more cunning and villainy. 

Seeing these two alpha males trying to one up the other is really interesting. Their chemistry is undeniable and incredibly hot. The thing with alpha male is they don't talk about their feelings and whenever they have an intimate moment, they look away and change the subject. Is kind of hilarious to see them both growing feelings for each other.

The suspense was very well crafted as well. We have a maniac who wanted to hunt down Snow. Mace and Bill were tasked to off him and we were thrown into a game of cat and mouse. There are parts whereby I'm holding my breathe praying for their safety. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with this latest instalment for Haven Heart Universe. I wonder will we get a book for Black. That unfeeling monster deserve some love too.

“Billy Boy!” Mace said loudly with a clap, making Snow jump.
“Well, if it isn’t fuck face Mace.” Watching Mace’s smile fall and morph into anger made my entire week. If I was going to find any joy in this job, it was going to be repeatedly knocking that pretty boy off his self-made pedestal.
“Let’s put the pissing contest off for a later date.” Black’s gravelly, booming voice was powerful enough to make you snap to attention. But I couldn’t help myself. I shot Mace a wink and joined Snow when he sat on the couch.
“I’ll rip those eyes from your head while you sleep, fucker,” Mace whispered so only Snow and I could hear. I knew Snow was about to go rabid, so I beat him to it.
“You assume I sleep.”
Mace wanted to say something else, but when Christopher slapped a folder on the coffee table between us, it was all business.
