Publisher's Summary

A scoundrel who lives in the shadows.
Jack Turner grew up in the darkness of London's slums, born into a life of crime and willing to do anything to keep his belly full and his siblings safe. Now he uses the tricks and schemes of the underworld to help those who need the kind of assistance only a scoundrel can provide. His distrust of the nobility runs deep, and his services do not extend to the gorgeous high-born soldier who personifies everything Jack will never be.
A soldier untarnished by vice.
After the chaos of war, Oliver Rivington craves the safe predictability of a gentleman's life - one that doesn't include sparring with a ne'er-do-well who flouts the law at every turn. But Jack tempts Oliver like no other man has before. Soon his yearning for the unapologetic criminal is matched only by Jack's pleasure in watching his genteel polish crumble every time they're together.
Two men meant only for each other.

Any additional comments?

I loved this. It's brilliantly written, both lead male characters are fantastic and the lively way they converse really captured me, as well as the raw emotion. As I believe this is the author's debut novel, I thought it was fantastic. My only complaint was the coarse language that the author seemed to feel it necessary to use. So many authors do that with sex scenes, turning something beautiful into something crude, however, the emotions of the characters shone through regardless and it didn't stop me reading the book three times almost back to back. I would also say that the narrator's choice of accent seemed a bit odd, giving a guy brought up on the streets of London a northern accent, but oddly, it worked.

Great narration, entertaining story

This was a really entertaining historical M/M romance with, on the whole, super narration by Gary Furlong. My only bugbear with the narration was that Jack Turner was a Londoner and yet Gary voiced him as being from Yorkshire which was noticeably inaccurate for an English listener. I doubt American listeners wouod have noticed though.
