Gabriel is supposed to meet an informant at Club Madrone. While he is waiting he notices a gorgeous man near the bar. Gabriel wishes he had time to indulge himself but he has a job to do. When the informant doesn’t show he decides to try and salvage the night by doing some looking around. What he finds is definitely unexpected. He is alone in an office upstairs when he suddenly finds himself pinned face down to the desk. His captor is none other than the sexy man from the bar.

In the following minutes Gabriel has the most erotic experience of his life. This man seems to know all of his most secret needs and desires. No stranger to one night stands, Gabriel has no problems with casual encounters. He has never wanted more until now, but he knows that an undercover cop can’t afford to have personal attachments. He leaves the office without even knowing his new lover’s name.


Little does he realize that their paths are destined to cross again….

MEXICAN HEAT is available in ebook from Samhain Publishing and in print from MLR Press. This is the first novel in Laura Baumbach and Josh Lanyon’s CRIMINALS AND COCKTAILS series. There are many things I liked about this book. Gabriel and Miguel are sizzling with passion and chemistry. Their feelings for one another are very intense and their emotional connection felt very real to me.


The plot is electrifying. There are moments in the story that genuinely surprised me. The more I read the more invested I became. Throughout the novel, I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next, wondering how the heroes would overcome the obstacles in their way. I greatly enjoyed Miguel and Gabriel’s adventures. This novel is a fun read and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
