My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My favourite one after Garrett’s and a completely different tone and pace for the V&V series.
This one’s funny as well as sweet, it has an undercover FBI agent doing his best not to fall for a potential suspect and failing miserably.
And it has Gabe, lovely Gabe, who is so much more than his lack of confidence and default way of falling into superficial ‘little rich kid’ persona.
The investigation/suspense element of the plot worked for me, even if it did all wrap up rather quickly, it made sense.
Alec and Gabe are a wonderful pairing too, once they get all the obstacles out of their path.
It’s medium steam, when they get it on they’re on fire, but it takes a reasonable build up to get there. Again, it felt realistic given the nature of Alec’s undercover role.
So far I’ve had an excellent experience with every one of the Vino and Veritas instalments.
