There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Lots of word choice errors, typos, etc. Several small story inconsistencies (e.g. within set of interactions, the author mentions that characters don't know what is going on, then mentions they partially know, and then one is mostly informed about previous events.) None were crucial points to the story.
There are the bones here for a series in my opinion. Riley roaming from one crime-riddled job to another. The mystery wasn't too challenging, but the people were worth getting to know. But I hope the author gets a story editor and copy editor...or some fierce beta readers.
Explicit mm sex scenes. Some humorous observations and banter, but not a silly book. Likable MCs...there was room to feel a lot more of their history (together and apart) to enrich the emotional depth/empathy with the characters (e.g., some high school scenes of them together, expansion on Riley and his brother storyline). Riley's personal history has some sadness.

N R Walker's Sixty Five Hours
When she’s murdered on the night of a big launch, there’s a whole room full of potential suspects including Riley—who found her—and her kids, two ansty, graspy, unlikeable characters. Enter Tad, a former classmate, one-time crush, and the detective on the case. Riley doesn’t think Tad remembers him and the circumstances of their reunion aren’t great, but it doesn’t stop those old feelings from resurfacing. This all made for a great whodunit, some steamy romance and a happily ever after that, if we were skimming the surface, would have been very satisfying.
Sometimes, I wish I could stop there, but my first WTF moment was when Riley went back to work. Like, dude, you just found a dead body, it’s time to put that temp role to work and move on. But no, he went back and started digging around. Not only that, he reported his findings to Tad who encouraged him (say what?). And of course, they get into a “no we shouldn’t, yes we should” sexual relationship that was as hot as it was frustrating. Not because they were breaking all sorts of rules (like, the list was LONG), but because when it came down to “are we more than hooking up?” Tad used it as an excuse to back off. Oh no, we can’t, you’re a witness. He lost me there and I wasn’t all that interested in seeing Riley forgive him.
That said, this book was entertaining with interesting and sometimes amusing case of side characters, and a mystery that kept you going back and forth between the two standout suspects.
The romance was unrealistic for many reasons. It was insta-attraction, but right from the start, Tad, the cop, said it could only be a quick hookup due to the case. Umm, unless Riley was shockingly gorgeous, that’s hard to believe. A cop shouldn’t even glance at a witness, never mind agree to a quick hookup. The whole setup was inconceivable. And then Tad constantly dropped by with lunch or invited Riley to dinner or a drink—it just didn’t jive with what he said.
And then, the high school angle was so irritating to me, and it only got worse as it was repeated throughout the book. Riley was hiding the fact that he knew Tad in high school when Riley was a geeky gamer and Tad was, of course, a popular athlete. Riley crushed on Tad but Tad had never looked twice at the geek. That trope might have worked if they were both in theie early twenties in this story but they are in their early thirties so the whole ploy seemed childish and immature. Who really still lives in their high school days in their thirties? To the point where it was obsessive. Grow up already. Sigh. Sorry, I digress.
I generally love this author’s work and I strongly suspect that the narration is responsible, in part, for my dislike of this one. The main crux of the story is a murder that takes place where Riley is working as a temp executive assistant. His boss is killed just before launch of a new product line and just before her secret marriage is revealed. In addition, she was about to announce her new husband’s new VP position in the company—a VP position in which he’d share responsibility with the other VPs who happen to be her two adult children. So lots of suspects abound. And Riley, an innately snoopy fellow, is enlisted by Tad to keep his eyes and ears open. Naturally, he takes it too far and is nearly killed for his snooping efforts.
I wish I had read this or listened to it from a different, more dynamic narrator. My hope is that the story is better than my perception, and looking at reviews from others who read the e-book version, it appears that they believe it is really good. So, if you enjoy this author and you like a light mystery and romance, try the book.
