Yes, I will admit it. I'm in love. With Josh Lanyon. His books are...a dream to read. Completely effortless and amusing (which I will admit to not expecting [the amusing, not the effortless - after all the rave reviews I was expecting the books to be good] as I would classify the Adrian English series as suspense and from where I sit suspense and humour don't quite fit *grin* But feel free to dissuade me of this notion).
I love Adrian's self-deprecating humour. As for Jake... I'm sorry Kris (I hope this doesn't mean I am going to be sent to Coventry?), but ATM I like Jake. I do think he is trying to force himself to be other than what he is, but I'm guessing (hoping) that eventually he will work out that what he is is actually OK. Saying that, I am (slightly...OK, completely) worried about how he will get from A to B and whether collateral damage (to Adrian) might occur along the way.
*SIGH* I love it when a book/series just clicks so well *grin* So, have you read any/all of Josh Lanyon's Adrian English books and, if so, please let me know if they get better (not sure if that's possible). If you haven't read them, are you tempted?
