Alright, I take back all the horrible things I said, this book is kind of funny, in a silly way. :D
The stupidity of things in this book is making me laugh a little.


It wasn't too bad honestly...more like a cheap B rated movie. Not bad at all. Could have been developed a lot more...and I mean a lot. There's a lot of potentials. The characters could have been developed more too. If done right, the material could have easily gotten 10 times the view.

I liked the idea of this story. Gabriel has grown up the son of a police detective who hides behind his badge to physically abuse his wife and son. After an especially bad beating, Gabriel decides that enough is enough, packs up his stuff and runs of to New York City. Luck smiles his way and he manages to get a job and a roof over his head, but he’s unwittingly embroidered in a crime and placed at its centre.

Alejandro Cardoza is police detective in New York who is trying to solve a case where L...more

This is a strange novel I have some problem to identify: I don't understand if the chaos is volutary of it is the fervid mind of the author that needs to settle down.

Gabriel is an abused child. His father is a cop so he doesn't think he could have an help to resolve his problems. When he is 18 years old, after the last beating, he thinks to killing himself but a gentle neighboor convinces him to fly away.

He goes to New York, thinking to became a yaoi writer: he is gay and he loves to read yaoi n...more

I am baffled.

Not a single person in this book makes sense. Actually no, sorry, two of the characters do (sort of), but only because the first one is an abusive control freak, who happens to be a bad cop and the other one is his gay son, who runs away from home after being driven to the point of committing suicide (you can't expect any rational decision or thought from him after 18 years of physical and emotional abuse).
But, in all honesty, I could not put the book down. It was a very surreal re...more

I liked he manga inspired cover. I thought giving the main characters Hispanic backgrounds was a good touch and made them more relate-able. These were's everyman, they had their own identities. I thought Gabriel's character and his motives were a little simplistic and it irked me a bit but I suppose that come with the genre. Overall it's a good though not great book that could have been fleshed out a bit as far as the relationship aspect.

Who was behind the baby trade and when sees Cardoza the truth about Gabriel...
I had to read it out in one run !
Though this "erotic"-crime-story has only a very few short sex scenes in it.
These scenes are between the 18 year old virgin Gabriel Palacios and police detective Alejandro Cardoza (m/m).

erratic, bizarre and over the top. expected more, having enjoyed a different book by this author. really, just very strange writing. oh, and cardoza? absolute crappiest police officer ever written.

Cardoza is the most incompetent's cop I'd ever see. Too much of that kill the story for me.
