He lives in the shadows of the law. Now, wounded and stranded in the city after a job only he could do, he has no qualms about climbing through the window his old lover left open—or stealing his shampoo, at that. He has, however, not taken into account the possibility of being surprised in the shower.

Three years is a long time to go between visits, especially if you’ve left so much anger and hurt and desire unresolved. They try to negotiate a truce for one night—over Chinese takeaway leftovers and apples, and between the sheets.


This is a VERY short book.   It is more a single scene or chapter.  The writing is superb.  The author is excellent with creating a scene.  The descriptive nature is amazing for a short.  Even though there isn’t much detail of the characters (not even their names) and most of their story is inferred, the author gets you feeling for them.  I’m a sucker for dark characters and the main character is dark.  I almost wish the author would make this a longer story because it so took me.



About bluesmokey

I'm a plain Jane who longs to put her imagination to work. I'm not a writer but I like to read.
