Lovely and Light
on 25 August 2009
Nicholas Valenti and Sean O'Brien are partners in the local Police Department and have been inseperable since meeting at the academy. Dubbed the Mick and the Spic - one ethnic group away from a really good joke, their close physical and emotional bonds have elicited homophobic debates and remarks form their squad despite the fact they are relentlessly heterosexual.
However, since Sean was attacked six months previously, Nick has been having increasing feelings about Sean that make him more than a little uncomfortable and when the opportunity is presented to them to go undercover at a notorious gay resort because of their bond, the two really begin to discover how close that bond really is.
I loved this book. It doesn't pretend to be what it's not but the characters are well-written and avoid being stereo-typical - I actually liked both of them. It's unashamedly romantic and although the sub-plot is barely there and does at times seem a little contrived, it's still a lovely and light-hearted read. A keeper.
