Book Reviews by Janis F & Leisha – “Tal’s writing in relation to the build up of these two men falling in love is outstanding. You can feel all the emotions from each character and how they each feel from their different perspectives. It is absolutely beautiful to read.”

Karen B. – “Gay Secret Service [agent] Ethan, and his presidential boyfriend Jack… are a delight to read about. Theirs is a sweet and sexy romance in a story that is also deeply passionate and wildly dramatic. I enjoyed every news brief, every secret rendezvous, every kiss…even the shoot-’em-up action…. This writer composes with expert believability, both on the political and on the personal fronts. I will definitely be reading this book again and again. Well worth the read!”
