Book Description

Previous Book: Three Wrong Turns in the Desert

Someone wants to kill cute, sexy gay pop star Karif al-Fulan, and it’s up to bodyguards Liam McCullough and Aidan Greene to keep him safe. But will Karif destroy the burgeoning love between Liam and Aidan with his intimate advances? Between passionate romps in a private villa on the resort island of Djerba, off the coast of Tunisia, Liam and Aidan must face down bombs, guns, and the pressure of their own testosterone.

Who’s trying to run them off the road in Tunis, orchestrating rock-throwing demonstrations, and issuing death threats? What’s Karif’s connection to a prominent Palestinian politician? From poolside play to a Turkish bath to alley blowjobs in an island souk, these guys are good at getting into and out of trouble. But in the end, once Aidan and Liam save Karif, they still have to find a way to work together without destroying their romance.

More About the Author

I've wanted to be an author since I was about sixteen, when a high school assignment on A Separate Peace showed me how powerful writing can be. At the University of Pennsylvania I studied creative writing with Philip Roth and Carlos Fuentes; I went on to receive my MFA from Florida International University.

Kimo Kanapa'aka, the detective hero of Mahu, Mahu Surfer, Mahu Fire, Mahu Vice, Mahu Men, and Mahu Blood (due this fall) has had a powerful hold on my imagination for many years. I love writing about Kimo and hope to keep doing so for a long time.

In addition to writing about Hawaii, I've edited a collection of essays about gay men and their dogs, called Paws and Reflect, as well as three erotic anthologies, Hard Hats, Surfer Boys and Skater Boys. And if you like funny, sexy romances, mine are (MLR), Three Wrong Turns in the Desert and Dancing with the Tide (both Loose Id).

I live in Hollywood, Florida now, with my partner and our golden retriever.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun book full of action and exotic adventure 5 May 2011
By Andy eC
Format:Kindle Edition
Although this book could be read alone, I would say it is more enjoyable if you read 'Three Wrong Turns in the Desert' first. The boys spend this book in a hot island paradise looking after a young and difficult budding musician, this book feels like have tropical holiday and half adventure! A very easy read with just the right amounts of romance, drama, mystery and passion. Be prepared to want to rent a private villa if you read this, in the hope of grabbing some of this life for yourself. Book 3 soon please!

4.0 out of 5 stars No Angst 12 Feb. 2015
By Simon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok. So, Book 2 in the series. I preferred it to Book 1, probably because the characters are already established and the plot was more energetic, more action and adventure. Can't say it's not well written, it certainly is, but like with Book 1 in the series it didn't quite reach that 5 x star mark. I think its probably because there is no angst between the two protagonists and what little there is, lasts only a couple of paragraphs. I wanted them to have a major fallout, a fight, something to shake them up. No, they're happy and contented in both work and play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another fine story from Neil Plakcy 10 Sept. 2010
By Lloyd Meeker - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Dancing with the Tide - Neil Plakcy

This engaging erotic adventure is the second featuring ex-Navy SEAL Liam McCullough and his lover/business partner Aidan Greene, who first met in Three Wrong Turns in the Desert.

In typical Plakcy fashion, the writing style is lean and firm, the characters are solid and believable.

The story, in which Liam and Aidan take an assignment to protect a spoiled young Arab pop star named Karif who has just come out of the closet, moves at high speed throughout, but never at the expense of the main characters. In fact, I was surprised at how much I cared for Karif by the end of the story.

Liam and Aidan's relationship is imperfect and honest, and the eros is a natural function of of it.

This is an intelligent, well-crafted story with interesting plot and engaging characters, and a greatly entertaining read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Neil Plakcy 17 April 2011
By Derrick Dodson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Liam and Aiden are back! I loved their first story, Three Wrong Turns in the Desert, and they are just as fun in this one. I liked the story in the first one better, but loved seeing these guys again. It's nice seeing Aiden starting to come into his own. In the first novel he was a bit unsure of himself and trying to prove something. He's a more confident. Plakcy makes sure to introduce all kinds of angst and drama, though. The guys aren't going to cruise right through. And once again, the story is much more focussed on a plot rather than a roll in the hay. Those scenes are great too, but they aren't the focus. Get the first book, then get this one. You're going to really enjoy the ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dancing with the Tide 7 Nov. 2010
By M. Nix - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
After their harrowing experiences in the previous months, lovers Liam McCullough and Aiden Greene have chosen to add the word business partners to their relationship. Aiden even flew back to the states to take a set of courses so that he can hold his own, he hopes, when they work together as bodyguards.

Up and coming Arabic singer Karif al-Fulan recently came out of the closet. In the Muslim world, admitting to homosexuality can be particularly dangerous. Therefore, Karif's manager has called McCullough Protection Associates to hire Liam and Aiden because of the threats aimed at Karif.

The job is proving more difficult for the guys because Karif doesn't take the threats seriously. Liam and Aiden try to figure out where the danger is coming from, but unfortunately it may be from more than one source. Add to that a mystery man who keeps Karif happy, but can they trust this English lover who conveniently falls for their client? They can only save Karif so many times before everything blows up in their faces.

Rich in detail and emotional depth, Dancing with the Tide is an inventive and sensual mystery with a contemporary romance on the side. Fans of the previous story will love hearing from Liam and Aiden again although this is a standalone tale. Liam is still his usual efficient, commanding presence, while Aiden is finding his way in this new life. Their sexual chemistry is still scorching hot and going strong. Filled with interesting characters, intense situations, and a 25 year old brat, Dancing with the Tide gives a sexy and satisfying read from start to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second book in Bodyguard Series not as Swashbuckling as First Book 4 Sept. 2012
By Teast - Published on
The first book in the Bodyguard series "Three Wrong Turns in the Desert" is action filled and introduces the reader to Tunisia along with an unlikely couple and their developing relationship. The first book leave the two bodyguards with uncertainty in work and love. "Dancing with the Tide" shows the development of their work and lives together. The action is more tense anticipation than real danger until close to the end when danger comes from unexpected sources. The reader learns little about life in Tunisia in the second book.

Plakcy is a good writer and shows his romantic side much more in this book than in the Mahu series of mysteries. This book is, also, much more erotic with detailed descriptions of the intimacies between the 2 protagonists every few pages. Therefore, the book is certainly not for everybody and has a limited audience.

Those who read and enjoyed "Three Wrong Turns" will likely enjoy this second book as it expands on the characters. Reading this book in isolation may not be as enjoyable.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very good and enjoyable hot read 20 July 2011
By Emanuela PlasticDuck - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book very much and it confirmed that this series is really good.

It didn't have the strong sense of place of the previous book Three Wrong Turns in the Desert, which really made my head spin with all the adventures Aidan and Liam went through, and I missed it some. I also think that Kafir, the popstar Aidan and Liam were protecting, was cute, but not very likable, he just showed a little bit of growth in the end, but he was too much damsel-in-distress and drama-queenish. Both Kafir and Gavin were very careless, but they were also very young, so maybe that's understandable.

I was glad there was only Aidan's point of view in this book, because it made the book more even and Aidan is without doubt the funnier between him and Liam. Liam is still the hotter though. I liked seeing how comfortable they are with each other, even if they're still learning to know and maybe trust each other, both in their personal life and in their job.

I think the author is more comfortable with Aidan, so I had the impression that Liam's personality was not as developed as Aidan's and I hope that he'll show something more than what he told Aidan until now. I have the feeling there's a story Liam is not comfortable sharing yet about the way he dealt with his sexuality when he was younger and I am looking forward to seeing his more fragile side. It's as if for all his skills in his job, he is still growing as a person, maybe because Aidan is the first man he had a real relationship with.

The writing is very good, I had really the impression my eyes were flying over the page. I also appreciated very much the maleness - is that a word? - of the main characters. It's a perfect book to spend a few mindless and relaxed hours. Looking forward to the next!
