Bad Bishop 
is the second book in the Perfect Play series by Layla Reyne. This mm romantic suspense series must be read in order. Therefore, I will keep this review short and spoiler free and hopefully entice you to start the series for yourself.

Bad Bishop
 literally picks up a few hours after the end of the first book in the series, Dead Draw. After the events of book 1 , Marsh , Levi and his son David are lying low on Marsh’s families ranch. That doesn’t mean they will stop looking for the traitor in the agency or try and stop who is behind the human trafficking ring. Their investigating takes them to Europe, where they will have to blend in with the enemy and put themselves one step closer to taking them down.

“I will have your back, however I can do that, however you need me to, and I will give you a home and heart to return to. I promise I won’t leave you.”

Bad Bishop’s story line is filled with progress on their investigation, but also some downtime with friends and family. There is a plethora of cameos from Layla Reyne’s Fog City series. Which I myself haven’t read but after getting to know Sean, Trevor and Charlotte, I’m very interested in their book. Through the book, Marsh is battling with his insecurities over whether or not Levi would actually want to be with him when this is all said and done. While Levi is secure in his feelings and has no problem proving his feelings about Marsh in and outside of the bedroom . 🔥🔥

Marsh planted a forearm on the mattress and levered up, kissing his husband, one of the best men he’d ever know. “You’re something special, Levi Bishop.”

In the end, Bad Bishop was a great continuation to Levi and Marsh’s story. High suspense, high steam and an ending that will leave you anxious for the final book.

Bad Bishop by Layla Reyne is the second book in the Perfect Play series. Reeling from the events that went down in California, Levi Bishop and Emmitt ‘Marsh’ Marshall head for the safety of their family to try and figure out their next move. With their collective group of hackers, agents and everyone in between the couple finds themselves abroad chasing the present case as well as trying to solve the mystery that has haunted Marsh for three years. While investigating Marsh and Levi find themselves trying to figure out if their marriage of convenience is worth pursuing for real in the future or if it’s destined to fall apart.

Levi Bishop has found himself falling for his husband, Emmitt Marshall. He trusts Marsh to have his back and his heart. Now he finds himself having to prove to Marsh that he’s not going anywhere no matter what Marsh does to push him away. Levi is thrilled to find his son settling into the idea of relying on Marsh and Marsh’s family/found family. With his cowboy trying to go off on his own, Levi must take control of the mission and the direction they’re taking in their relationship. The two continue to have intense chemistry in the bedroom and their intimacy shines out while in public as well as any ground rules that had been set are smashed.

Marsh planted a forearm on the mattress and levered up, kissing his husband, one of the best men he’d ever known.
“You’re something special, Levi Bishop.”

Marsh admits he’s absolutely smitten with his husband Levi but ghosts of past loves leaves him struggling to trust that he won’t be left brokenhearted in the end. He finds the situation getting even harder as he introduces Levi to his family and found family. He thinks that if he continues trying to bring closure to his present case and the past that haunts him he can move forward with his life. Levi pushes back, not allowing Marsh to take all the risk and proving to be a worthy partner in the field and in his life.

“I will have your back, however I can do that, however you need me to, and I will give you a home and heart to return to. I promise I won’t leave you.”

Picking up directly after the events of Dead Draw with Marsh and Levi retreating to the safety of Marsh’s family ranch. Marsh’s mothers are fantastic and seeing the entire gang from San Francisco as well as Sean and his spouses come to support Marsh and Levi made me so happy. With a supporting cast of characters as well as an excellent mix of action, romance and heat Bad Bishop was a win in my book.

5 stars for Levi and Marsh’s action packed and steamy mission abroad.
