He has a dangerous job which means he leads a dangerous life. But the putting his lover in danger part. Since the first time he laid eyes on Cam that became a real possibility. And still he cannot let Cam go. I was tired of Julian not telling Cameron what he did and I was tired of Cameron's insecurities I hated Mirim she was too busy and I hated Cameron for always letting her get to him The back and forth was annoying as hell and otherness no action!
By Madeleine Urban , Abigail Roux. Cameron Jacobs is an open book. He considers himself a common waiter with normal friends, boring hobbies, harmless dogs, and nothing even resembling a secret Julian's love and devotion are all Cameron could have hoped for and more. But when his ordinary life meets and clashes with Julian's extraordinary lifestyle, Cameron discovers that trust and fear can go hand in hand, and love is just a step away from danger. I really liked this one, but to be honest, the first half of the book dragged a little bit to much for my liking.
There were only moments after moments of relationship-building and nothing else. Cameron Jacobs is a waiter at a restaurant named "Tuesday". Once a week is a tall, very handsome, black dressed guest there and eat alone.
He never says anything, just nods, and always chooses the daily specials and the house wine. Cameron look forward to Tuesday nights when the mysterious man usually come. The man's name is Julian Cross and at Chrismas Eve a Tuesday , he asks Cameron if they can't meet outside after closing time. Cameron invites the man home. There are many secrets and circumstances that aren't explained. It's a mystery around the well-dressed and thick-skinned Julian, he comes and disappears.
Cameron, however is quite simple, just a regular guy who lives a quiet life. Maybe he's a bit of a loner. He enjoys his job as a waiter and his four little cute puppies at home. There is always a certain sadness, combined with a breathtaking underlying expectation of what will happen in this as nicely told novel. I love every well-written line and sentence. Every now and then it's really fun too, both men or the authors have a sense of humor. You have a visitor.

He can't himself understand what Julian sees in him, and the uncertainty is amplified part of all that is secret, and long unknown to him, around Julian. The answers to most of his questions are vague and there is a feeling of something dark and dangerous lurking around the corner. That girl Miri, Cameron's colleague and friend really? Why nag and raise concern with a thousand questions about some conditions she knew nothing about.
Why not just say: I'm here if you need a hand or someone to talk to. Maybe she wanted her friend a good life, but in my opinion she showed it usually just the wrong way. Cameron, please, don't listen to bad advice from nasty friends. Believe in what you feel - belive your lovers word. There is a big, big attraction, lovingly and tenderly. I love both Cameron and Julian from the first moment. I constantly keep my thumbs hard for the two men to get together and a good as it usually feels completely impossible "Happily Ever After".
He reached for Cameron's other hand and pulled until Cameron was facing him. At a time, I actually thought that the heart would stop and just shouted: Nothing is certain and no answers to all my questions is given until just at the end. Cleverly of the two authors - they keep me on edge through the book. For me as a reader does just that, this wonderful book about Cameron and Julien, to an obvious "fiver". Another great book by Urban and Roux to love.
Superb drama, delicately told, great attraction and love, and the two men steaming hot about.

Nov 08, Vishous rated it really liked it Recommended to Vishous by: It would have been a perfect 5, but for some reason one of the main characters read: Cameron annoyed me to the highest level. So even though he's a male I am putting him on my stupid-irritating-heroin shelf because I did feel like he was some chick and not a guy while reading it. Finally they spend one passionate night together, which I must admit made me very very jealous of Cameron, and start a relationship.
Cameron practically doesn't know anything about Julian, and Julian wants to keep it that way because he doesn't want to put him in any danger because of his job and doesn't want Cam to be scared of him Cameron was so annoying and I was so frustrated with him, and every time he started thinking about their relationship and doubting Julian my reaction was this: After some time he is devastated because Julian doesn't even acknowledge him in the room What was he supposed to do?!?!
Beg you on his knees to take him back?!?!?! Even writing about him makes me frustrated But he did surprise me in a good way for about 10 seconds when he showed Julian his fist of fury yes shocking I know and for that I did start to respect him. Have i said it already? Just for the record I gotta say something first: I was literally drooling over my laptop while reading his words and wishing he was talking all the time I can't even describe how hot was that, but then anything that involves Julian is destined to be hot! He really loved Cameron, wanted to protect him even when they weren't together, when Cameron broke his heart I'm killing you in my mind Cam on so many ways you don't even want to know.
I can't even choose my favorite lines because there are so many! Actually every thing that came out of his mouth I would be copy-pasting here Sep 07, Ar-Feiniel rated it it was ok Shelves: Could this book be more boring? I don't think so. The story basically comes down to this: I have a crush on him, but he doesn't notice me: He noticed me, but he's not serious about me: Oh, I'm such a nobody, how could he really love me???
He says he loves me, but I'm just sooo insecure and unworthy. I love him, he loves me, but we can't be together.
We're not together, but I want us to be toge Oh. We're not together, but I want us to be together. I'm mad at him, I love him, I'm pissed at him, I long for him Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah The authors create some main characters - this time around it's a whiny cinderfella and supposedly an uber mysterious but not really hard ass assassin, and plan a story for them. They probably map out the turning points: While reading "Warrior's Cross" I had this feeling that Roux and Urban had no idea how to get from point A to point B to point C, what to do with characters between those important moments, how to fill the story with, well, a story.
And not of the boring and repetitive variety. The kind that makes us love and understand the characters, the kind that surprises us and leaves us envious of often ordinary people living extraordinary lives. A staggering lack of creativity and imagination on the part of Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban. Aug 20, Sabrina The Trash Queen rated it liked it. And this was good until the scene were they grew apart. And I was just left there like And at that moment I knew that this was going to make me angry and that it was going downhill from there.
But I still ship them, because they were great together, but so many shit and bad decisions happen that just left me so freaking angry and I hate feeling angry. And the side characters? Great, I adore them. They are the second best thing about this book. At least I hope. Oct 08, Lenore rated it liked it Shelves: Some random thoughts while I read this: He's blond, he's Irish, he's a trained assassin.
Any chance he could get his own book? It made me wonder what gorgeous gorgeous Julian found in him. OK, I'll admit it. I liked Julian better. But Cameron was a little boring. And, by the way, what did he need the kick boxing lessons for if he all but pissed himself when Lancaster showed up at his condo? I would have liked to see more of them together in bed. Convince me they were right for each other on a physical level as well. I wanted to see scorching hot passion. I wanted to see them devour each other. I wanted to see Julian practicing some of his killer skills pun intended? I'd take Julian's monster cats, Smith and Wesson, over them anytime.
Can someone please shoot her? What a nosy, irritating bitch! View all 63 comments. JF Harding or Brock Thompson would be wonderful choices. Mar 26, Wynne Katherine rated it it was ok Shelves: It was boring as hell. I even tried skimming, and I got bored skimming. How is that even possible? I don't care for Cameron. I don't give two flying fucks for Julian. ALL this guy thinks and does is about Julian. At least as far as I read. Does your world revolves around Julian, my dear sweet, innocent, Cameron? I don't even know why I am getting so worked up over this book. I wanted to like it, but I don't know.
And I guess that's why I'm so upset? I don't fucking know. I give up trying to continue reading. Click here for more of my reviews View all 12 comments. D I was ingtrigued by Julian Cross from the start. He was a total mystery. Cameron didn't know much about him except he always showed up at the restaurant on Tuesdays and sat at the same table and ordered the same things. Julian was a powerful bad-ass alpha, who seemed dangerous, was very good looking, quiet, and looked capable of doing harm. Yet Cameron never felt threatened or scared of him, instead he felt attracted to him. Cameron Jacobs worked as a waiter in the restaurant Julian had become a regular to.
Cameron was the total opposite of Julian. He was more friendly, and kinder in appearance as well as in attitude. He may even be weaker when compared to Julian but no less likeable to me. I understood Cameron completely in regards to his worry for not really knowing who Julian was. I would have thought he was stupid if he didn't freak out a bit. They were such an adorable pair: I really enjoyed watching Julian act like a big baby from a dog attack. He was almost as funny as Ty Grady when he was intoxicated by his medication.
Towards the ending things started to pick up speed and the suspense was really exciting. But there was a sad part where I felt brokenhearted. Then also for the sorrow Cameron felt for six months. But the reasons for why Julian did this was understandable, I guess, so he's forgiven. Nov 18, Rach rated it really liked it Recommended to Rach by: Thank you for reading it with me Kelly sweetie: I Loved this book: Not really sure why as it wasn't as hot as I usually like.
I think it was Julian who made it more than worth while: I would like to give a special thank you to the lovely Vishous who kindly recommended this wonderful book to me: She is so sweet telling me there was a character in it who she absolutely adored- Cam This is for you V to say thank you sweetie: I really really did. I guess I just love the bad guys when you love the guys who are better at showing their inner emotions. But that's OK we are all allowed to love characters for all of their different traits: I loved Julian but Cam sorry to say grated on my last nerve!!!
I wanted to slap him across his cheeks and tell him to stop being so soft! I would have done but then he would have cried even more and I couldn't stand how much he cried as it was: View all 43 comments. I thought this was going to be a kind of edgy, cop thriller tale but it wasn't. That would have been fine but I enjoyed this warm, romantic story that depicted the dichotomy of two total opposite MC's.
Typically I love the dark, edgy tortured character and while I fully enjoyed Julian it was Cameron's subtle, gentle, warmth that gave me the most enjoyment in this story. I found the writing to move right along and this was a satisfying and fulfilling read. For me there were no down-times, it kept me engrossed and reading. For a story like this I think I have to rate it on the tummy-zinger scale and in that regard there were many, many zingers.
I think I felt them all, right along with Cameron. Did I mention that I just love him? I have to say that I'm glad I didn't have to cry for a change lately I've been reading a lot of tear-jerkers but that doesn't mean that it wasn't an emotional read, just not heart-wrenching and thanks, 'cus I didn't need that. So on the emotional reading scale: View all 11 comments. Aug 30, Em rated it it was amazing Shelves: Being afraid when I knew I could have been with you was terrifying.

Jul 30, Cristina T. Honestly, Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux could write the ingredients on the back of a cereal box and I'd read them! This universe they have created is brilliant. Now, let's meet 'em. Cameron Jacobs is the head waiter at a posh restaurant called Tuesdays.
He really enjoys his job, is down to earth, friendly and kind. He was a little too boring for my taste at times, but I liked him quite a lot, nonetheless. Julian Cross, the very definition of tall, dark and handsome, is a regular customer at Tuesdays and ironically, he comes in every Tuesday night and orders the same thing, the special, house wine, no dessert.
He's mysterious and the restaurant's staff, Cam included, speculate about his job. He's often covered in bruises and one night he even has his arm broken. Cameron is infatuated with him right from the start and the feeling is mutual, even though Cam can't understand what a man like Julian would see in him.
