An Alisa Release Day Review: Larry Boots, Exterminator by John Inman

Standard

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

Kenny Long is living a new life. Blinded in an accident, he has taken control of his unexpected reality the best way he can, and it’s working out better than he hoped.

Of course Larry Boots doesn’t know any of that. All he sees is a beautiful man sitting on a park bench.

Larry has a few problems of his own: his mother. His job. The lack of romance in his life.

His job. In the course of that job, Larry strikes up a friendship with Kenny. The next thing he knows, he’s so head-over-heels in love, even his mother doesn’t seem so bad. Of course his career is still a problem, but he’s working on that. Hopefully he’ll have the problem resolved before the man he’s being paid to murder succeeds in murdering him first.

And before the man he loves finds out he’s a cold-blooded killer.

This was an entertaining story.  I believe the last book I read by this author was more serious but this one has a playful tone throughout the whole thing, even when Larry is on the job which I appreciated and I think worked perfect for this book.

These two meet by chance but don’t let that stand in their way, especially Larry.  I loved their connection from the beginning and even when Kenny finds out the truth about Larry it doesn’t really deter him.

We saw this story through Larry’s eyes which is where the playful tone comes from but he is observant which allows us to read the other characters a bit better.  I hated how hesitant Kenny was and how sure that no one would want him long term but I felt Larry did an amazing job of showing him and standing by him even when Kenny tried to push him away.

The cover art by Kanaxa is great, I love the visual of where Larry and Kenny met.
