An Alisa Review: Mad About the Boy by Beth Laycock

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

Something’s waiting for Eli. Somebody’s watching his every move…

Eli is used to looking after himself. Single for longer than he’d care to admit, he doesn’t need a man for more than a hookup, not when he’s got his loyal dog, Zeus, by his side.

But one night changes the course of his life. He meets Dominic, an actual copper and not the stripper he thought his best friend had hired for his birthday. Unfortunately for Eli, after his night out celebrating, a gift awaits him at home—but not a pleasant one.

His birthday may be over, but the threats keep coming. Keep escalating. Keep hurting those close to him. Just how far will the monster behind them go? And how much will Eli lose before he can stop them?

This was a very good and emotional story.  Eli is great person and I loved seeing his dreams come true.  Dominic is absolutely perfect for him because Eli needed someone who wasn’t going to run away when he got scared.

Eli is such I sweetheart and I hated seeing him struggle with someone stalking him and then what happened to the dogs, it was heartbreaking.  Dominic latched onto Eli quickly but it was perfect for the two of them and I loved how Dominic wasn’t going to let Eli go too easily no matter what.

I loved getting to know these characters and the others in the story.  I was glad that even with the issues at the dog rescue they were able to find a way to keep it around and for Eli to live his dream and Dominic will be right by his side while he’s doing it.  Now Eli’s stalker, it was pretty much a surprise though I was starting to suspect near the end based on the stalker’s point of view but man the Eli have a few creepy guys around or those that made you second guess their intentions, I think that was on purpose to make the reader suspect different people but it just made me feel bad for Eli having to deal with it.

The cover art by free to be Creative Co is nice, I love the visual of Eli and Zeus and then the creepy stalker in the background.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
