Product description

Product Description

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

Austin Glass seems to have it all, A loving fiancee, a future with the FBI and a healthy sized trust fund. At least on the surface. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to the world 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 a redhead in a pair of bunny slippers.

As events unfold in the biggest case of his life, Austin’s carefully planned future unravels, and he finds himself pushed into making quick, life-changing decisions. But can he trust himself or anything he feels, when each event seems to be just a series of volatile reactions?

You won’t be able to put this one down! I absolutely loved it. There is no black-and-white in this story, and the author definitely pushes buttons and crosses lines. Austin and Peter’s emotional lives and power balances become entangled almost at once and draw in those around them as well, creating a fast-paced, frenetic, and almost feverish plot. There’s barely a moment to catch your breath before it’s onto the next crisis, the next plot twist or revelation.

I was admittedly frustrated at the beginning of this book, during Austin’s “but I’m not gay” phase. I have a definite preference for characters that are wholly, or almost wholly, accepting of their sexuality- whatever that may be- and the issue of being “gay” is just, well, not an issue. But I carried on with the story, and came to accept that Austin’s traumatic experiences as a teenager have affected his sexuality to the extent that he’s avoided any meaningful relationships with men- even friendships. Austin’s personal revelations are about more than just being “gay”, and indeed that becomes much less important as his journey goes on. That journey is more about accepting that his past traumas have shaped his life in ways he wouldn’t have thought possible.

Some readers will no doubt feel uncomfortable with the somewhat “stalker-y” way that Austin peruses Peter at the beginning of the book. Maybe I can reassure them by saying that, as someone who is very sensitive and hyper-aware of such things, I didn’t feel that it ultimately crossed any lines. Their relationship moves very, very fast, and Peter is far from being a passive player in it. Peter is more (much more) damaged and emotionally vulnerable than Austin is, and in some ways he’s being forced to rely on Austin’s position as a cop and financial resources.

One of the best books I have read in ages. The MCs were both flawed and complex but likeable. The story was totally engrossing and all the characters believable, I was sorry when it ended and look forward to the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good indeed! 12 February 2012
By Niki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow this one is worth much much more than 3 bucks. Not just a full length novel, it is sheer entertainment which kept me reading till the very end with a break in between as it is a long novel. Kind of spoiling us readers as this writer has set such high standard for the price one may be willing to pay. Sure there are some editing problem but so minor that it is nothing. Human trafficking, drugs, dirty cops, gangsters from the past, the pace of the plot is astounding. One never know what to expect around the corner and I feel like I have experienced a whirlwind by the end. Both Austin and Peter are so well drawn out. Flawed, complex but so likable. I love Austin's voice. Engaging, absorbing with hilarious moments, I have such a fun time with this guy as he takes the reader on a roller coaster ride. But this is much more than a cop thriller. It is also a romance and a romance between a cop and a hooker is always fun as personalities clash. Except that it is more than fun as passion runs high and emotions clashed constantly in their tug-at-war romance. The secondary characters are just as interesting and fun. I do not know if this is the writer's debut but she has blown me away with this one. I hope she will deliver another exciting MM romance Soon. Bravo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of action! 21 September 2016
By Joelle M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was fantastic. The blurb had me hooked with the mangy cat and bunny slippers. I knew that I needed the story behind them and it didn't disappoint. I loved how complex this story was. It kept me on my toes through the whole book. I laughed a lot and I was taken completely by surprise a couple of times. I'm becoming a huge fan of cop romances. I love the action and suspense.

And I loved Austin. He was awesome! Loved his smartass remarks! He would drive me up a wall in real life but he was a great MC. Peter, on the other hand, took me a while to warm up to. I didn't connect with him right away but as his story was revealed, I began to like him more and more and by the end, I loved him just as much as Austin. The supporting characters were an eclectic bunch but rounded out the story nicely. Cai found his way into my heart and I can't wait to read his story. I just hope that Austin and Peter show up too!
5.0 out of 5 stars Just a delightful read 24 November 2014
By Sheri Johnson - Published on Amazon.com

You got me at "bunny slippers." Read some really terrible reviews of this book, but then saw a note that it had been rewritten - I must have read the rewrite, because I just couldn't put this down, even as the plotting got more and more ridiculous. The thing is, Austin himself thinks the twists and turns are ridiculous, and when he acknowledges it, I'm right there beside thinking, "I know, right? This is some convoluted and crazy stuff going on."

I enjoyed Austin. I liked the way his thinking worked, how yeah, he could kind of be an a-hole, but there was a lot of pain-covering and insecurity behind it, which I could feel. Austin and Peter made me laugh more times than I bothered to count.

The author did a fantastic job of building the background - this was NOT a gay-for-you story at all, but a story of how a man builds a solid closet after traumatizing events in adolescence.

Brava, Dani Alexander, well done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Characters trapped in a Weird Boring Plot 6 August 2015
By Casey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think people who gave this book 5 stars were biased toward the author whose vibrant personality I think really shone through the first person narrative. There was some real promise here and a zany fun (and sometimes really annoyingly self-centered) main character to filter the story through but the plot itself meandered and took on that degree of implausibility that makes it hard for a reader to a) stick with the story, and b) continue to care about the characters. Example: Sixteen yr old runaway kid of a dead mob boss raised/supported by a couple of child prostitutes has the money to get prescription medication, see a therapist, and support a drug addiction. Oh and he's bipolar and a brilliant artist and a crybaby because why not. I found this book on the Goodreads Gay Fiction Self-Published list and I think had this story had an editor to guide through the plot and smooth over the rough ham-handed (read: boring) parts, it could have really been something. Although the beauty of self-publishing is you can always go back and re-publish...
5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Good Book 25 August 2015
By Lauren Prouty - Published on Amazon.com

This is a crazy good book. I read it a while back (I have it both in kindle and audio formats) and just read it again recently because I felt I might have missed some things. And that's not hard with this book - it has SO much going on. The story is told by Austin Glass and he truly is a shattered glass. Its almost as if he's having a manic episode while telling the story - he's hilarious one moment and then has you crying the next. Austin is a cop and this is the story about him and Peter...the whore...as Austin can't seem to stop calling him that despite he's crazy about him. This book is rich in well developed characters (and I'm thrilled the next book will pick up with Cai - Peter's "brother"). Characters such a Louis, Austin's long suffering cop-partner, Darryl, Peter's friend, (is a scream - heck both of them are a scream), his ex girlfriend (oh yeah, there's an ex girlfriend since Austin isn't sure which way he's swinging). So much to enjoy in this book. For the audio book - The narrator does a good job with this story, his voice for Peter, Louis, Austin, Darryl are all distinct and excellent. Its the rare book that makes me laugh out loud and this one does it for me - but not only that its just damn good story telling.
