Artie needs a hero, a man like those he’s always revered in Golden Age films. His drug-dealing jerk of a roommate got him arrested, and since his savior isn’t likely to sweep in and save the day, Artie calls a bail bondsman.
August has always imagined himself a hero from a black-and-white movie, but he’s never found a man willing to let him play that role—at least not until he gets the call from Artie.
Both of their dreams might come true, but not before August must use his skills as a bounty hunter as well as a bondsman. Artie is on the run for his life, and August must protect him and help him clear his name. Only then can they both finally get their man.
I really enjoyed this story. Artie is so adorably sweet and innocent but not at the same time, he just trusts easily and trying to make it on his own. Artie is just what he has always wanted in a man but tries hard to keep some distance between them, at least at first.
These two were perfect for each other, down to the dream of dancing the night away with the right person. I loved how they were both romantics at heart though August doesn’t outwardly show it as much but no matter how different they are in the end they want the same thing. Part of Artie’s innocence is he can’t stand the thought of seeing anyone hurt and I could see how much he hurt himself when trying to keep August and his family safe. August has a very determined personality and he uses it to help protect and guide Artie in just the way he needs.
Kenneth Obi did a great job narrating this story. The voices he used for each character were perfect and helped me to connect with their personalities and emotions. The different voices also helped with keeping track of the story.
Cover art by Bree Archer is perfect and I liked having a visual of August.
