Blurb: Can two men, one, Joey Fairburn, a twenty-one year old Criminal Justice student, the other, Glenn Tanner, a thirty-four year old hitman attempting to start a new life, reach a common bond to stop a murderer and find love despite their disparate ages and occupations?
Glenn Tanner, a thirty-four year old hitman who wants to disappear and start a new life.
Joey Fairburn, a twenty-one year old Criminal Justice student studying to become a police officer.
One problem in common:
Joey’s father, an escaped killer, has come to the small town where Joey and his mother live and where Glenn has finally settled down. Glenn meets Joey, discovers what is happening and becomes involved in trying to stop the killer before the man can murder Joey’s mother.
Will these two men, Glenn and Joey, with such disparate ages and backgrounds, be able to find a common bond that will unite them in love? Only time will tell.
Review: This was so not what I was expecting from Edward Kendrick. There is a lot of sexual tension but not a lot of sex. Which really surprised me, as his last book that I read, Everyone’s Man was dripping with sexual innuendos and steamy bedroom scenes.
Instead, this is a very well written story. For Joey, it is love at first sight. And as much as Glenn would like to take Joey up on his subtle invitations, he is more concerned with keeping Joey safe. There are guns and bad guys and two very horny men fighting their attraction for one another. It was a bit of a stretch when Glen brought Joey into his lair and Joey barely blinked, but everyone is not a nosy control freak like me.
I loved the ending…kinda. Might have been interesting for Nate to fight a bit harder…but, since it really wasn’t his story…
This was a very enjoyable read. Would make an excellent movie. Tall, dark hitman willing to risk everything for the sweet tender criminal justice major…I’d pay $8 bucks to see them come to life on film.
