really liked it
bookshelves: contemporary, mystery, m-m

It's an entertaining, suspenseful read in itself, but also a clone of the Adrien English mysteries. The characters are practically the same: the hunky deep in the closet (private) cop, and the out and proud narrator from a wealthy family. The mystery takes backseat to their troubled romance, so much so that its resolution happens offstage.

It's a good read, but not Lanyon's strongest.

Ami I honestly think that there's a Jake and Adrien in almost story Josh has written afterwards ^_^

Lou Harper Well, I think all romance authors and drawn to certain character dynamics. What I like about Jake and Adrien most is that despite the seeming alpha/beta set-up, their characterization is more complex. Josh's "weak" characters are never really that. They always have strength, usually in the form of a stubborn streak a mile wide.
