I was enthralled with this story from beginning to end. I read it straight through and forgot it was a novella. I wanted so much more. This had a noir feeling to it, but was set in a modern setting. I personally think Charlie’s writing skills have elevated. That is what it seems to me. I mean this was 60 pages of goodness. Imagine a full length novel. It had an American Horror Story feel towards it less gruesome more romance but still the tone of the story was set. I figured out things very early on, but I was giddy with joy that I’m actually getting a story about this topic. Franklin and James are awesome. James has this aura about him that screams old soul. He’s working at Pacific Blue Hotel for part-time work. He’s a veteran of the military and police force, but by the way he carried himself in the story you wouldn’t guess it. I loved the way Franklin spoke. He was a total gentleman. He was kind, and gallant something we do not see in most M/M guys lately. I truly did enjoy this mystery novella, and I hope Charlie continues on writing stories like this.
