Review: None Can Hold the Dark by Wendy Rathbone (The Foundling Book 2)

In this sequel to Wendy Rathbone’s homoerotic romance The Foundling, Diego and Alec meet new challenges in private and from the outside world. Diego is being investigated by the local police for murder. Meanwhile, Alec’s amnesia and the trauma of his kidnapping by human slavers continue to plague him. And the danger to Alec is not yet over.

Distracted by their new love, both men fail to see certain threats until it is almost too late.

I loved seeing Alec and Diego’s relationship grow in this story. Alec showing more of his love and Diego doing the same. The massage scene is very hot, but also beautiful. Diego shows so much care for Alec in his actions. Alec’s love letter to Diego is so beautiful. It was the perfect way to show Diego his feelings. I so did not see Sasha coming. I’m interested how his relationship with Iggy will happen in the last book. Cannot wait to see how the story continues and what Alec remembers.
