Review - Don't Look Back by Josh Lanyon

Rating: You Want To Read

He was chuckling, a deep, sexy sound as he pushed Peter back on the satiny cushions. Was this for real? Was he going to go through with it? Peter blinked up as his tie was unfastened, tossed aside, his shirt unbuttoned, laid wide. The evening breeze -- scented of smog and jasmine -- felt cool against his overheated skin, like the lightest breath…

Peter Killian, curator at Constantine House in Los Angeles, wakes in the hospital to find himself accused of stealing a tenth century Chinese sculpture. Peter knows he’s not a thief -- but that’s all he knows. Why is hot and handsome Detective Mike Griffin so sure he’s guilty -- and so hell-bent on seeing Peter arrested?

And why is Peter having these weird dreams about an unseen lover who somehow reminds him uncomfortably of Michael Griffin?



What a novel concept; a quiet librarian (sort of) by day and a sexual dynamo at night. The catch is that the librarian is a male museum curater, the hot sex is with another man, and someone is framing the curater. From the first chapter, I was hooked on the whole amnesia aspect and how strange it would be to not remember some things but have total recall of other events. Peter's frustration and confusion were perfectly divulged as the circumstantial evidence slowly piled up against him. His close friends, Roma and Jessica, create a perfect backdrop for his home life. The plot was meted out in exact portions that kept the reader in suspense until it all came together in a stunning conclusion. Mr. Lanyon certainly knows how to write a love story wrapped in a mystery.
