Review also at JustOneMoreBlogAboutBooksARC courtesy of NETGALLEYI LIKED IT BUT I ALSO liked it but I also that something was missingGoing in I was expecting a little romance between Rafi and Mihi and probably that s why I was disappointed on this front The story is focused on Rafi and his mission than his relationship with "HIS HUSBAND YEP THEY RE MARRIED OVER RAFI TALKS " husband yep they re married over Rafi talks Mihi as if the reader nows everything already which he doesn t and that left me uite disconnected to themHowever considering only the main storyline the mystery about the terrorist attack that left Mihi injured Road to Revenge has definitively nothing missing There s the right amount of intrigue action and plot twist as any good spy storyAll things considered I m uite curious about the second book in the series Road to Home will be released on January 7th and to find out where RafiMihi s adventures will take them next timeAt last I d like to thank the author for the chance to read her book through NetGalley and I hope she appreciates my review 4 StarsPlease read review at The Blog of Sid Love Review posted on World of Diversity Fiction ReviewsI m not sure how to review this book While I really enjoyed reading it I Life Changing Smiles know it s not a story that everyone will like It s not a romance but a well written gay fiction which does have a same sex married couple that love each other in it There is mystery suspense and intrigue set in a place that sees violence and hatred almost on a daily basis Rafi and Mihi are in a Market Place restaurant when there is a terrorist attack just outside the restaurant Moments before the explosion Rafi leaves to use the restroom and Mihi gets critically injured in the explosion Rafi is unharmed and vows to find out who was responsible for hurting Mihi andilling innocent people It s hinted that what Rafi and Mihi do for a living in the States makes him the perfect person to go undercover to track the culprits I wi. Rafi only wanted to spend a relaxing day in Tel Aviv with his lover Mihi When a bomb goes off outside the restaurant where they stopped for Sh information was given about their history and what exactly they did for a living in the States that gives them such intimate nowledge of terrorists and the like While revenge is foremost Rafi s mind he is able to and the like While revenge is foremost on s mind he is able to that part of himself under control enough to get the job doneI liked the first person POV in this story it really made me feel involved and not nowing very much of the area that this story takes place the authors descriptions and Only a Whisper knowledge made it feel real Even though this story isn t a romance the love and devotion that Rafi and Mihi feel for one another shines through and some of my favorite parts are the ones where Rafi is visiting Mihi in the hospitalI wish readers would take the time to read Gay Fiction there are a lot of great stories and authors writing those stories out there I recommend this book to anyone that wants to try something new 35 HeartsReview written for MM Good Book ReviewsReview to follow 35 starsWe are dropped into the heart of Israel in a large marketplace in Tel Aviv where our two protagonists Rafi and Michael Mihi a married couple are visiting from the States A bomb goes off outside the restaurant they are eating in and they go from sightseers to victims of a terrorist attack Mihi is critically wounded but Rafi because of a bathroom break to the back of the building is unharmed From this explosive start the story unwinds very much like opening up a carefully wrapped box Clues and information about the suicide bombing and the two men affected Rafi in particular are slowly uncovered Though it s never really clear who these guys are in the world they are than meet the eye Both men have close ties to Israel and Rafi it seems is no mere tourist While Mihi lies recuperating from his injuries Rafi is brought in to help Israeli intelligence investigate the suicide bombing The story moves uickly from two lovers on vacation to one of terrorism in the Midd.
