Kenny Long is living a new life. Blinded in an accident, he has taken control of his unexpected reality the best way he can, and it’s working out better than he hoped.
Of course Larry Boots doesn’t know any of that. All he sees is a beautiful man sitting on a park bench.
Larry has a few problems of his own: his mother. His job. The lack of romance in his life.
His job. In the course of that job, Larry strikes up a friendship with Kenny. The next thing he knows, he’s so head-over-heels in love, even his mother doesn’t seem so bad. Of course his career is still a problem, but he’s working on that. Hopefully he’ll have the problem resolved before the man he’s being paid to murder succeeds in murdering him first.
And before the man he loves finds out he’s a cold-blooded killer.
John Inman just writes the most interesting books. I never fail to laugh, maybe cry, but always I walk away wondering…how did he make that happen and I didn’t see it coming, and it seemed so plausible???
I mean, how does a regular guy…has mommy issues, no “real” job, just hookups in his life, happen into a career as a hitman? (There is a bit of an explanation, but you have to read the book).
Larry couldn’t have been more sweet, more lovely, other than that pesky job, upon meeting Kenny. He was protective, and caring, yet didn’t let Kenny think that he didn’t want him, because he was blind.
Kenny, meanwhile didn’t judge Larry, just accepted him, and asked him to be safe…maybe just change his profession if he could.
The internal monologue with Larry made me laugh the whole way through, as John’s books so often do. Especially when it came to Larry’s dogs.
Fun book, with a bit of a startling ending, but of course, the HEA never far away for these men.
