Blurb: Vincent Sullivan is down on his luck. When a chance encounter generates a job prospect he’s too desperate to decline, Vincent is well on his way to a career in crime. But after the job goes wrong and he’s gravely injured in the process, things couldn’t get much worse. Except that he may have just killed a man.
With the entrance of a mysterious stranger, life is finally starting to look up. Unless his luck is about to run out for good.

Someone recommended this to me and I can’t remember for the life of me who it was. I need to track this person down and kiss them all over.
This is, hands down, one of the most engaging books I’ve ever read in this genre. Out of the hundreds of novels and short stories I’ve read over the years, maybe half a dozen could be said to match it in content and composition.
Solid plot line, impeccably created characters, a wonderfully smooth sentence flow, everything was just awesome. The romance between the two main characters is absolutely unique, nothing I’ve read so far even comes close to it. Despite what some might call a really bizarre chemistry between them, you never doubt for a moment that this is love at the most intense level. I got so attached to their story that I couldn’t pick up another book for weeks afterwards.
I don’t like putting spoilers in my reviews but I need to say that the blurb really doesn’t do this book justice. There’s just so much more going on here alongside the romance. There’s action and blood and guts and humor and some distinctly crazy supporting characters. I would LOVE to see someone make a movie based on this book; I was already casting actors in my head as I was reading it.
In short, read this. If you’ve been through hundreds of books in this genre, this will give you hope for the future. At the very least, it will make your week. I can’t wait to read it again.
And I have an unexpected treat!! The very awesome Lisa T from the AttentionIsArbitrary blog, has managed to track down the elusive author of this beautiful piece of work. Want to know more about Frank and Vincent? What other surprises this author has in store? Head on over to read the fascinating interview and ask any questions you may have!
