Audio Review: Bad Bishop A Perfect Play Novel By: Layla Reyne Narrated by: Christian Leatherman

The hunt continues in Bad Bishop, the follow up to Dead Draw.

From the blurb:

When a marriage of convenience becomes more than either husband bargained for...

Special Agent Levi Bishop needs to:
Keep his son and family safe.
Prove his boss was framed
for a crime she didn’t commit.
Convince his selfless cowboy husband that his needs matter too.
Make a bold play before love slips through his fingers.

Special Agent Emmitt Marshall needs to:
Protect his husband and stepson.
End the nightmare that’s haunted him since his mentor’s murder.
Hack through layers of deception to identify the real threat.
Stop hoping someone will choose him.

Marsh is determined to go it alone, to guard his family and his heart.
But Levi’s life and heart are on the line too.
Cornered, Levi will chance any play to save the marriage and man he needs.
Rings were exchanged and promises made.
Marsh kept up his end of the bargain.
Now it’s Levi’s turn.

Bad Bishop is the second book of the Perfect Play trilogy, a swoony, edge-of-your-seat M/M romantic suspense series featuring a marriage of convenience between two FBI agents determined to stop a common enemy—and to do right by each other.

Lesetiger's Review:

I listened to Dead Draw and immediately followed it up with Bad Bishop. Wow, and now I'm dying to listen to the final volume in the series!

Layle Reyne has written a story with great characters and lots of suspense.

Bad Bishop picks up where Dead Draw left off, so I recommend listening to Dead Draw first.
After an attack on his family, Marsh takes his husband Levi and his husband's son David to Texas to live with his family. It was very nice to meet Marsh's family and there were some great family moments.

However, the enemy never sleeps and Marsh and Levi want to solve their case and to do so, the two of them are headed to Europe.

I found the descriptions of Salzburg and the surrounding area fascinating, probably because I've been there a few times myself.

The suspense is undeniably there and increases the more you listen to of the audiobook. Marsh and Levi get closer to the enemy, but he is not unprepared either. There are some twists and turns that I didn't expect and although some things could be cleared up, there are some questions left unanswered that can be resolved in the next volume. And there was a nasty cliffhanger at the end that left me very curious about the sequel.

What I liked was the evolution of the relationship between Levi and Marsh from marriages of convenience to caring husbands. I found them both very likable and I am now looking forward to hearing more from them!

The audiobook was narrated by Christian Leatherman, who was new to me, but did a good job. I enjoyed listening to him and I could distinguish the characters well.
