Love heals all scars.
Teens are dying and Blaine Wilson, a DC police detective, knows why. The scars on his right leg, left rib cage and left collar bone are a brutal reminder of his past as a teen prostitute, and a key to solving this investigation. Blaine’s trips to gay bars are reckless but he’s searching for solace for his wounds. When he meets Andy everything changes. Dating Andy forces him out of the closet at work and then he has to admit his past indiscretions to his captain.
Andy falls in love at the drop of a hat and he's promised his two best friends he won't fall so easily again. When he meets Blaine he's helpless to resist the instant attraction.
Andy and Blaine are dedicated to making their relationship work when the killer targets Andy and his two best friends. Can Blaine save his lover and Andy’s friends without losing himself?
I love good mysteries; it’s one of the things I was missing when I started to read mostly M/M books. Oh there was a hint of mystery here and there, Kaje Harper’s books certainly qualified as mystery, Mark Roeder’s young adult Gay Youth Chronicles were mysteries; then I found Sara York.
As some of my loyal followers may remember, I reviewed her novel NOT THAT TYPE OF GUY not so long ago, and that had many elements of mystery and adventure, but SELLING IT goes much farther in scope. Sara has developed a solid police procedural with a cast of interesting characters and a fully believable romance in bloom. She shows us who these men are and how they came to be this way and we see how the violence of the murder case begins to affect their relation once Blaine discovers a nasty connection between the murders and his own past.
This will probably rank as one of my favorite books for a long time to come.
