A male prostitute, a mangy cat, a murder and a maniacal mix-up that threatens his career, his impending marriage and his life. Nothing is going as planned for Austin Glass.

Austin — seems to have it all. At least on the surface. A loving fiancee. A future with the FBI and a healthy sized trust fund. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to everyone hides a painful past he’s buried too deeply to remember. And his quips mask bitterness and insecurity. Austin has himself and most of the whole world fooled. Until he meets someone who immediately sees him better than he sees himself.

As events unfold and Austin’s world unravels, he finds himself pushed into making quick life-changing decisions. But can he trust Peter or what’s happening between them when each meeting seems to be just a series of volatile reactions?

*****

The title grabbed me and fit the book perfectly although the beginning of the blurb made me giggle (mangy cat, bunny slippers). I had to read the book to find out just where these fit in with an FBI agent.

I found myself very fascinated with whole plot. It was different but riveting. All the book characters seemed to have, their own problems. Some resolved as you were reading but other not.

Austin and Peter together, my first thought was hell no! that’s just not going to work. I was so wrong. The hustler got his cop more than anyone had. Peter understands Austin and together they are perfect. The sex is sizzling in places but doesn’t over shadow the plot.

The story line was riveting. I didn’t want to put the book down. The twists and turns kept me reading. There was so much to this book, I laughed, I cried and I wanted to throw the book at times but I still had to keep reading to the very end.

What a fantastic start to the series. I’m looking forward to reading the next book just to see what happens with the secondary characters and hopefully catch up with Austin and Peter.

Overall a fantastic read. I will be reading more from this author.
