When his friend Allen Harrington's death is ruled a suicide, boy-next-door-cute Kevin Connor - a hustler by trade, sleuth by default - sets out to prove a case of murder. It doesn't help that the victim's grown children, who disapproved of their father's gay lifestyle, are only concerned about their inheritance. But they are not Kevin's only problem. Despite the lack of anything even resembling an invitation, his mother has moved in with him, and Tony Rinaldi, the ex-lover who broke his heart back in high school, has reappeared years later as the lead investigator in Allen's death.
Luckily, Kevin has his handsome best friend, Freddy, on hand to help him try to uncover what really happened to Allen. But Kevin's on his own in figuring out how to get his mother out of his hair and the now-married Tony back into his bed. There's also a small chance that Kevin just might actually be in love with Freddy. Not to mention the demands of his clients, like the stirrups-wielding gynecologist and The World's Nicest Sadist. And, did Kevin remember to take his attention deficit medication today?

Do not love Tony. I was rooting for Kevin/Marc or even Kevin/Freddie or Kevin/Romeo... any one of these men would be better for Kevin than Tony. Brilliant book otherwise. Loved it, although the ending felt a little rushed. Going to buy the second one right now. Read full review
