Artie finds himself in a jam when he eats a brownie he didn't know was filled with marijuana and a drug bust lands him in prison, even though he didn't do anything. He's scared out of his mind, but finds comfort in August who would guard Artie with his life. There's an intense attraction between them, but they try to remain professional as client and bondsman.
This story contains elements of a classic romantic black-and-white film which happens to be Artie's favorite type of film and August's fantasy of being a hero from one of those films. Our tough yet compassionate main man swoops in to save the young innocent in trouble. The desires of both men compliment each other perfectly: Artie longs for that strong, dependable gentleman and August wants someone that he can love and protect.
As the story progresses, our two heroes learn more and more about each other, having shared interests and become more intimate. At the same time, Artie finds himself on the run from criminals and flees to prevent August from getting involved, but August uses his skills as a bounty hunter to track Artie down and keep him safe.
I really liked this story and how the characters' relationship developed in their actions. August becomes more protective as Artie gets deeper into trouble. Their relationship also progresses gradually and doesn't feel rushed, even though both men find each other very attractive and desirable. It's a very sweet romantic story and, as with all of B.G. Thomas's books, very well-written and contains realistic, fleshed-out characters.
The author made deliberate, but subtle, effort to give a suspenseful plot the romanticized atmosphere of classic films, which was fun. Artie did strike me as a grownup Opie Taylor, using “gosh” as his favorite expression, but he never sounded too hokey or outdated. August was a nice mix of gentleman and tough-guy, a Sam Spade type, adding a sharper edge to balance Artie’s unsophisticated qualities. There are a few villains and other secondary characters, including Artie’s best friend, his mom, and a visit with some figures I recognized from “Trust Me”. It isn’t necessary to read that though.
The plot moved right along, with a touch of danger, some decent action scenes and avoided being over-dramatic. The dialogue was smooth, the scenes and premise realistic and reasonable. Honestly, I found the story refreshing and August and Artie adorable, even pretty hot at one point. I’m more than happy to be able to recommend this one.
