Do you believe in love at first sight?
Sanford Stewart sure doesn’t. In fact, he pretty much believes in the exact opposite, thanks to the Homo Jock King. It seems Darren Mayne lives for nothing more than to create chaos in Sandy’s perfectly ordered life, just for the hell of it. Sandy despises him, and nothing will ever change his mind.
Or so he tells himself.
It’s not until the owner of Jack It—the club where Sandy performs as drag queen Helena Handbasket—comes to him with a desperate proposition that Sandy realizes he might have to put his feelings about Darren aside. Because Jack It will close unless someone can convince Andrew Taylor, the mayor of Tucson, to keep it open.
Someone like Darren, the mayor’s illegitimate son.
The foolproof plan is this: seduce Darren and push him to convince his father to renew Jack It’s contract with the city.
Second in the series and to fully understand all the dynamics you should listen in order.
I have to say first and foremost, I loved the first one. Probably listened to it 4 or 5 times, and have been waiting for the second one. Of course with any sequel, we give it high hopes and are disappointed when it doesn’t meet those expectations. Which is why I’ve waited so long to write the review, I wanted my knee jerk reaction to settle down and think about what and how I truly felt.
Two things stood out for me in this story. One – it wasn’t near as funny and two the repeated ‘threats’ of perceived violence was cute to start, but by about half way through was annoying and by the end, I was ready to stab Sandy with my fork.
What I did like was the song and dance that Sandy and Darren played. Both pretending they didn’t understand the end game and maybe at first Sandy didn’t?
The auction was a brilliant way to tell the tale without bogging down the story with extra fluff, and getting everyone involved and the twist at the end just made it classic.
Narrator did a brilliant job getting everyone, even that fab parrot!
