One last heist.

It should’ve been easy. Crack a safe, steal from a villain, and go on vacation. The last thing Mack and Toshiro expect is to descend into a nightmare of betrayal.

Mack Ueda-Easton loves three things: his husband, heists, and his odd family of friends. He lives life on the edge. The only cloud on his horizon is the degenerative disease stealing his sight.

Toshiro Ueda-Easton tries to juggle his husband, his autistic sister, his interfering mother, and all of their heists. He knows they’re spiraling out of control and the journey they’re travelling can’t last.

What neither of them expect is to get catapulted straight into a dangerous conspiracy. They’re now in a race to come out on top. If they fail, the consequences are unimaginable.

My Thoughts:

This is one of the few times where I read the blurb at the beginning of the book.  It had me thinking “Mission Impossible” – television series not the movies.  No offense to Tom Cruise but I had a few man crushes back in the day.  Or even “The Avengers” – again the series, loved Mrs. Peel and Mr. Steed.

Toshiro “Toshi” Ueda-Easton seems to like stating the obvious where his husband is concerned.  Gregor “Mack” Ueda-Easton seems to be a modern day Robin Hood.  I hadn’t even finished the first chapter and I was thoroughly enjoying the back and forth banter between these two.  It was enough to even get a little chuckle out of it.  There’s also the point in the story where Mack can’t seem to stop using the word “prat” and that just got me chuckling every time I heard the word.  You have to read in order to see what I’m talking about.  Mack introduces us to a gentleman and by the end of the scene I felt as if I was missing something.  Toshi also introduces us to a young woman that’s special to him.  The author impressed me in that this young woman has issues that a lot of people can relate to.

This is a story about two people.  It goes beyond them being two men who are so in tune with each other and love each other very much.  To add to my intrigue of this story, I read it as if it were a television series.  The hardest part was finding the perfect stopping point.  And that’s so true when I get to the ending and question whether or not it is an actual ending.  Maybe my television series will continue.

Author Bio:
