    1. 4 stars. Review posted December 1, 2014One of my favorite quotes. Its meaning is very telling:Dead men can't be resurrected, no matter how much life you have running through your veins.First off, let me sweep some preconceptions out of the way. While Love is a Stranger has a couple similarities, it's nothing like Special Forces: Soldiers Part I -Director's Cut. SF is edgier, grittier, much more violent and certainly steamier. Yet all those facts did not prevent my humble little self from enjoyin [...]

    2. Need to catch up on this series going to re-read it4/29/16This was insanely good.Seriously, outstanding. It's not everyday that you score like this and get the sometimes elusive trifecta of great writing, a solid plot and fleshed out characters ALL IN ONE BOOK. Crazy, I know. Plus, I have read a lot of m/m, a lot of military, and a lot of mystery/thrillers in my time d let me tell you, John Wiltshire took my expectations for this this book and said, "Pffft."Benjamin and Nikolas are such great, i [...]

    3. Oh manI really had to use my brain on this one.It almost felt like the book started in the middle of the story or something. Nik is Ben's boss and they've apparently been sleeping together for the last 4 years. It's previously only been sex, but where this story begins its obvious more feelings are involved. And speaking of the sex. It was.different. interesting. Definitely fade to black in some scenes and not always very detailed. But then at times was really hot. I really wish we had gotten so [...]

    4. Written January 6, 2015 4 1/2 Stars - Overwhelmed and totally exhausted after this emotional and action-packed adventureBook #1The first book in John Wiltshire's talked about series 'More Heat Than the Sun' (4 books so far - all published 2014). ~ I was so very happy for this Christmas freebie gift and so very curious and excited to start to read it.••• Ohmygod what have I just read and experienced?This is unlike anything I've read in a long time. A cross between an action spy / agent thri [...]

    5. ****4.5 Stars****Firstly I want to say that it took me a while to get into this and I almost gave up. I am glad I've persevered because at some point an U turn happened and I couldn’t stop reading it.There were two things bothering me at the very beginning but I came to terms with it as soon as I started to get to know both characters better - around 30% in the story, I would say. They were:1)I know it's going to sound weird but their sex style was bothering me. I believe my friends know me as [...]

    6. The main characters in this book begin as boss and subordinate in a black-ops type of unit based within the UK. Ex-SAS soldier Ben Rider is a man whose skills of all sorts, including sex and assassination, have been used by his smoothly-charismatic married boss Sir Nikolas Mikkelsen, in the pursuit of the unit's goals. But a recent operation resulted in the death of a man whose family is intent on revenge against Ben, and as they strike back, the falling dominoes unravel the whole situation. Nik [...]

    7. ***3,4 stars***SEX, LOVE, SECRET SERVICE and a DOG.Even if there is a significantly increased risk that all my brain cells would be irretrievably destroyed afterI.HAVEADE. NEXT. SEQUEL.And if a harmful effect has been already shown, I have a single reassurance – I am not alone. We'll go down all together!WARNING: Everyone can be infected, but our experience shows that particularly young men and women with preference for strong masculine characters with a hard shell and a soft core are especial [...]

    8. This book did the impossible: it cured one of THE worst book hangovers I ever had caused by An Exaltation of Larks! It was literally a 'Mission Impossible' kind of situation but John Wiltshire's Ben & Nik stole my heart. 'Love is a Stranger' sucked me in right from the Prologue and managed to hit all the right buttons thereafter: 3rd person narrative (I think I've become allergic to anything BUT), set in Britain, exquisite writing, mystery element that had me guessing and biting my finger n [...]

    9. My friends will disown me because of this review. But for the life of me, I can't find a single thing that worked for me in this book. 2 stars because I could tell that something great was trying to pick out from this mess.I can't even tell you what my overall reading experience was, because the whole thing felt like mismatched scenes just thrown together. Odd writing, too much telling, lapses in time, plot lines that last just a few pages and a lot of repeptitive inner monologue.As far as the r [...]

    10. YouTube Booktrailer Love is a StrangerWow… this book was just wow, it's an exhausting, overwhelming start of a brand new series, I couldn’t put it down one damn second. Who needs sleep? Sleep is overrated anyway.… John Wiltshire made me virtually inhale the story, devour it. I’ve never heard from this author before but after only reading one of his books he became an auto-buy to me.You love dark? You love gritty? You love reading about a MC who seems to exist entirely in the shadows? You [...]

    11. BR with Lena, Mark, and Sofia!3.5 StarsMy head is still spinning! This is a very good book. Lots of action, lots of sex, and some great plot twists. I'm taking off one star for a pretty rough start, but I promise if you hang in there you'll be hooked (unless you're Sofia). Good stuff!

    12. This series has been on my tbr list for some time and since I love mystery, suspence and m/m, I figured it was time to give it a try.I was sucked right into the storyline and even though this story doesn't have a real distinct beginning, I had no problems figuring out what was going on. At least not at this point. You see, we get thrown right in the middle of an already ongoing relationship. If you can call fucking your "almost stranger boss" for 4 years a relationship ;)I was happily reading wh [...]

    13. 4,5 La verdad, no sé porqué no le doy las 5, llegados a este punto estoy absolutamente entregada a Nik y Ben, me encantan ellos, sus diálogos, su dinámica, la retorcida historia que les rodea, todo.No es el típico libro de chico conoce chico, aquí la relación entre los protagonistas ya lleva 4 años en marcha y para mi ha sido refrescante ver como de esos encuentros furtivos algo ha despertado, algo que ha puesto su mundo patas arriba y que les hace moverse sin saber muy bien donde ponen [...]

    14. It’s a tale replete with:Kickass, emotional, picture-perfect model mc’s, able to kill or cry at the drop of a hat.Back stories full of tear jerking traumas.James Bond actionFluids – starting from tears going on to spit and spunk, plus lots of showers.Sex - well lots and lots of that in every shape and form.I tried hard to connect believe me, my friends assured me that I would. Unfortunately the writing and me never gelled. This was me whilst readingUnplanned BR with Lena, Mark and Nick – [...]

    15. 3.5 stars : damned these good series with hot guys, action and fucked up twists. Rounded up to 4 stars because it's a bit unconventional and I'm surprised to enjoy it so much.Ben is a black-op working for Sir Nikolas. These 2 have beenlleagues with benefits (?!?) for 4 years and their relationship is slowly evolving to much more as terrorists swarm around them and the pasts of the 2 characters are revealed bit by bit.It’s fast-paced when it comes to the plots, complex when it comes to the pers [...]

    16. Update: no change in my view on this book but, having now read books 2 & 3, I'm so freakin' happy I kept going with this series. So if you have anything similar to my experience, I definitely recommend to keep going. Because, surriusly, Nik & Ben siiiiigh :)3.5 Stars on Prism Book AllianceBy the time I arrived at the beginning of chapter 8, I felt like I was having trouble understanding both Ben and Nikolas. We’re told that Ben has been working directly for Nikolas for some time and th [...]

    17. An excellent m/m thriller with lots of hot sex between two uber-male characters. Forget about prep, lube or condoms however! Also loved the cute dog. Story continues in book two.'We don't look anything like brothers, and you're Danish and weird. How about we say I'm your financial advisor?'Re-read 20 May 2016

    18. The title of this book, is what really drew me in and made me want to read it. I am obsessed with music and the song of the same title by the Eurythmics is one of my favorites. In fact, I have it on repeat while I write this review. The lyrics… they have so much depth and emotion and this book, oh boy it does the same and then some.I don’t know how much of a review I can actually give for this. There is so much that happens in the story with so many twists, turns and secrets revealed that I [...]

    19. He wondered how many other people were lucky enough to have an entire universe of need satisfied by one blond-haired man.This book has sat on my kindle for quite a while and I'm annoyed that I didn't realise how good it was and read it sooner. I blame friends of course for not binging it to my attention! I'm certainly going to be bugging the hell out of everyone I know to read it as they are really missing out on something special. It's absolutely epic and I know that Nikolas and Benjamin are no [...]

    20. To cut things short:Black ops. Secrets. A smokin' hot undercover operative. An enigma that is his boss -slash- lover. An out of the ordinary love story. Marvelous dry sense of humor. Excellent writing style.Exactly my cup of tea! LOVED IT! It's just the beginning, but this is serious all-time-favorite material! I'm in!

    21. *4,5 stars*Oh my. That was a wild ride. And didn't I love it!1. This has an excellent start! It immediately created tension and a whole bucketful of anticipation! 2. There is the action of course, worthy of any good thriller. Be prepared for shootings, kidnapping, fighting, kicking, and some other 'gruesome' stuff. Think of secret agents and you'll get the idea! :)3. Then there are Nik and Ben, of course. And sigh, where to start?There can be no doubt that the chemistry between them is intense. [...]

    22. My first John Wiltshire book, and what a fabulous start!I love Nikolas and Benjamin relationship! I love Nikolas's enigmatic aura, his mysterious past, his mysterious personality! I love Ben's tenacity to always be the man that Nikolas needs! And sex scenes just fantastic! I even love the dog! But most of all, through the reading, you can actually feel their love and how much they care for each otherThis is a book to be relish, to be appreciated not only for it's fabulous MC's and amazing plot, [...]

    23. This is my first John Wiltshire book. That's all it took to make me a rabid fan.I spent days immersed in the insanely captivating world of special black ops and international secret agencies. I'm sure I grew a gray hair or two stressing over our MCs. Wiltshire put Ben and Nik on a long, torturous road to HEA.I traveled with them on an amazing road of discovery. A road that revealed so much to each other, yet revealed even more to themselves. I watched with bated breath between gasps of surprise [...]

    24. Love is a StrangerBy John WiltshireFour starsOne thing is clear: when you read reviews by amateurs (which of course includes yours truly) you have to understand where they are coming from—what baggage they bring to the review. Professional reviewers (“mainstream” reviewers) also have baggage, but everyone knows who they are and the biases they bring to their reviews. So, as an almost-sixty-year-old gay man with a 39-year relationship; someone who came out in the mid-1970s in the first grea [...]

    25. BR with Julie.*3.5 stars*I couldn't give it more stars cause I didn't particularly enjoy the first 40%. An ex-SAS soldier Ben Rider who, after 4 years of a friends-with-benefits, falls in love with his married boss Sir Nikolas Mikkelsen. Their relationship felt weird, unexplanable things happened and I kept wondering how it was possible for Ben to be so in love with Nik. Cause he sure was a stranger, how much did he really know him?"I never really knew you, did I? So to me you are exactly the sa [...]

    26. Rereading 7th Jan 2016Can't get enough fix of Nicolas.John Wiltshire, just didn't create a story, but two individual Characters to fall in love with.This book as an introductory story of the series did a fine job of hooking me to it.John WiltshireThe writing was awesome, dialogs heartfelt and not cheesy kind but the one you would like to save up.I must say I became a puppet in the author's hand and he successfully provoked all kind of feelings he wanted us to feel along with Ben & Nic.The be [...]

    27. 3.5 heartsWell, this was different and refreshing! Twists, turns, lies, action. Just fun!Right away we're thrust into the affair between Ben and Nikolas. It's hot and heavy and 'just sex'. Pfft. Okay, I haven't heard that before. I know, I know, I just said that this is different, and it is. Obviously, what Nik and Ben have is more than sex, we all know it even if they don't. But there's one little snag in their relationship (other than 'just sex'), Nik is married.It's clear right away that Nik [...]

    28. ETA: wasn't to be. Bummer.:(I've been told this could be read as a really good Hannibal fanfic, so of course here I am, stoked and all ready. Uh! The guy's last name is Mikkelsen?! No, I'm fine. I'm cool. I'm squeeing just a wee bit with anticipation.

    29. 2.5 StarsI couldn't get into this one. I liked the characters, especially Nik, but I'm afraid not enough to ignore the plot holes. I thought Nik was a well-developed character and he carried the story for me, but everything seemed so OOT that I had a hard time believing the situations they found themselves in.
