The Long Con by Lori Toland

I had completely the wrong assumptions on this novel, I was expecting for it to be more a mystery/thriller, lot of actions and well, not so romantic, but I was completely wrong. Not only this is an hot and sexy romance, it has even a comedy undertone that I loved, romantic comedy are my favorites, and when the main characters are able to make me smile, that is a big bonus for me.

Now, I don’t think the purpose of Bradley and Tony was to be cute, and funny, but that is how they arrived to me. Bradley is a British special agent for an agency specialized in locating and retrieving stolen arts; his last case has a personal core, someone has taken a family heirloom, a Faberge egg. Due to the personal connection, Bradley allowed to go abroad, tracing the egg till New York City and a group of people who is trying to place the egg with a Mafia boss’s son, believing the egg to be fake. Mistaken for a high-paid hustler due to his good looks, Bradley is hired as a bait for the Mafia kid, who apparently is gay.

At this point, you have already imagined in your mind Bradley in the role of the cute submissive character who will fall for the Mafia man, a dark handsome Dom… and you are wrong! The Dom here, but sincerely without taking himself too seriously, is fair-looking Bradley, who is btw taller and broader than Tony; Tony is a submissive by nature, someone who likes to be ordered around, even if he has way more money and power than Bradley. It’s an easy bait the one they put in front of Tony, and Bradley will follow his cover all the way around, arriving to “sacrifice” his body to the altar of the mission (but sincerely, it wasn’t a big sacrifice for him…)

Forget the tension, forget the worries, the story of Bradley and Tony, even with the turn of events they will have, is basically hot and fun, and I have never had a worry that they were really in danger.
