Great story

Another good one in this series. Nice development of the two main characters. Can't wait to read the next one.

Dangerous Liaison

A Dangerous Liaison





Adrien with an “e” – oh how does he get himself into these messes but isn’t that what we love. Can’t wait for the next adventure. Well Lanyon doesn’t disappoint – although the mystery is not the most intriguing one, I think the foundation of this story brings romance/relationship to the forefront and the mystery in the background. For me, I felt Adrien’s pain – when you realize you’re with a man who wants to be just buddies, want’s you as a mentor not a lover -- that realization is heartfelt. The feeling like you are, just a convenience; maybe be taken for granted does hurt.



When Adrien refers to Jake being buried in the closet, I think it is more like six-feet under. I was disappointed in Jake but soon felt sorry for him. His struggles for who he is, who he loves, and why he feels broken brings new insight to who Jake is as a man. When he describes to Adrien WHY he can’t kiss him – you feel so bad for Adrien but to Adrien’s credit – he doesn’t dismiss him but still hangs on to try to figure out who is this man that he cares for.



The “First Kiss” is touching and what develops during the rest of the story is promising.
