Book two in the Fairground Attractions series
Even the brightest places have shadows.
Stevie is sweet and shy—the only hint of an independent spirit comes from his lilac hair. For years he’s harboured a crush on his best friend, Adam, who is everything Stevie isn’t. The problem? When it comes to love, Adam is a bit slow on the uptake.
On top of that, Stevie fears the escaped killer known as Harlequin is targeting his friends, and clings to his role managing the merry-go-round for some semblance of normality. But someone is watching from shadows even the summer sun can’t penetrate.
Realising that life can be all too short, Adam takes steps to ensure that Stevie will be his. All his protective instincts kick in when Stevie attracts some unwanted—and very dangerous—attention, but he can’t take care of him alone. The group of friends needs to band together because the bright lights and whirling horses of the merry-go-round won’t be enough to keep Stevie alive. Some killers are far too good at hiding in plain sight.
This novella series is about a group of college men who are spending their summer working at a local theme park. So far one has met his love while also finding a dead body, while two of them finally find their HEA together, while dealing with more death and bad guys.
I’m enjoying this series. Has some elements of BDSM, although very little on screen, some suspense, and a group of men who have all touched each other’s lives. My best guess as a reader is the the finality of Harlequin will come at the end of the series, but I’m going to love these guys the entire way there.
They are hopeful, funny, and give each other tons of grief over the smallest things. I laughed a bit during this one as Stevie, the shy one finally gets the man he has always wanted.
I can’t wait to see what is next for these guys.
