If you’re looking for an action-packed thriller with complex, intriguing characters, and a twisted ending that will completely take you by surprise, then ‘A Taste of Honey’ by Gamal Hennessy is the best choice you could make. This first book in ‘The Crime and Passion Series’ will impress readers through its compelling plot and steamy scenes. It is that kind of thriller that doesn’t shy away from showing how the world of crime truly is, and the author has created a story in which seduction and sex are the most powerful weapons.
The main character is Nikki Siriene, a woman who loves her life partner so much that she would do anything for him. Chris knows this and takes complete advantage of Nikki’s love, hopes and dreams. So, Nikki uses her sexual charms to spy on his enemies, endures the humiliation she constantly gets from his mercenaries, and puts her own life in danger to protect him. Her only hope is that one day Chris will decide to give up this dangerous job and build a future with her. Their newest mission takes place in Argentina, and it involves a suspected arms dealer. Nikki will have to seduce him, and she is strongly motivated by the promise that this will be their last job. She knows that if she wants to keep Chris by her side, she will have to succeed.
Unfortunately, things don’t go exactly as planned. The arms dealer’s mysterious wife intervenes, and suddenly Nikki has to deal with jealousy and betrayal. Then, there’s also the paranoid business partner whom Nikki cannot easily seduce and mislead. Thus, she ends up in a dangerous situation and she has to deal with it alone, because Chris will not be able to help her. She finally realizes that it’s up to her to save her own life and sanity. By the end of the novel, Nikki grows a lot as a character, and she becomes a strong woman who will not allow others so manipulate her as Chris did.
‘A Taste of Honey’ is a hard-boiled thriller that will keep readers guessing and turning the pages as fast as possible. The steamy, erotic scenes only add more power and intensity to the complex plot and the characters, allowing readers to understand them better and figure out their motivations. It is one of those rare cases when eroticism doesn’t take away from the plot, but it actually enhances it. Gamal Hennessy has clearly taken the genre to a whole new level, which makes his novel and future books in the series must-reads for any thriller fan.
