If there is such a thing as a ”funny gangster” book, this is it. While the setup is not funny at all, with Liam fearing the Delaney twins’ revenge with an intensity that makes him shake, the way Anne Brook sets it all up, completely over the top, makes for a hilarious tale. And since there is absolutely no violence, just a very credible threat, I was able to sit back and watch the goings-on with only slight nervousness. After all, with the Delaneys’ reputation you never do know what they’ll actually do.

Liam is in big trouble. He has been dating the Delaneys’ cousin for a while, and when the bast*rd dumps him in public, Liam loses it – also in public. He knows that the Delaneys will have to react; they are the heads of the local gangster scene, after all. They take their honor, reputation, and family connections very seriously. The description of Liam’s fears and panic all through the next day alone made it clear he expects nothing good. Then he gets followed on his way home, and things get worse.

Both Mark and Johnny make their intentions very clear, and the choice they give Liam isn’t any choice at all as far as Liam is concerned. He wants to live, so having sex with both of them is his only way out. As the masters of drama, the twins decide to take him out to dinner first, and it isn’t like any meal I have ever seen described before. Nor is what follows once they go to Liam’s apartment…

If you like the kind of humor that still has you half wondering whether the author may be serious after all, if a young man fearing for his life on the one hand while secretly enjoying his punishment on the other sounds intriguing, and if you’re looking for a read that is funny, hot, and uses a lot of preconceived notions about gangsters and what they get up to, then you will probably like this short story.

This is a contemporary story, mainly due to some hints here and there giving a modern “taste” to it, but for all other that matter, the feeling I had was almost of a black and white crime little story. Liam is a young and handsome man who had the bad idea to threaten in public his cheating boyfriend. Pity that said boyfriend has two twin cousins who are also dangerous gangsters and who don’t like someone to mess with their family. To Liam is offered a choice: or being shot on the spot, and in a very delicate part of the body, the family jewels, or playing the role of Mark and Johnny’s little pet for a night, in public and private. Obviously is not really a choice and Liam is more than willing to devote one night to the twins to preserve his “integrity”.

Even if Anne Brooke tries with all herself to describe Mark and Johnny as dangerous men, I haven’t really had the idea of them like deadly weapons; instead they seemed more like two grown boy with a new toy, and they had all the enthusiasm you usually have for something new, overplaying with it at the risk of breaking it. Only that, even if not so daring and more than willing, Liam is also a clever boy, and he understands immediately that, even if the twins are stronger, he can probably play with them and be safe; maybe with some sore muscles, but for sure with all his body parts intact.

This is only a short story, but it was funny and sexy, and truth be told, I wouldn’t mind to read more: I have the idea that Liam will end up as the Master of the two boys instead of their toy.
