Publisher's Summary

Felix and Lane are struggling with just how boring a "normal" life is, so when they get a chance to jump into action, they do so without a second thought - especially since they're offered a lot of money. The request is simple: find a way to retrieve a watch from police custody. 

But things are never as easy as they seem. Suddenly, they're caught in the middle of a family feud that could turn deadly. But no matter what, through kidnappings, car chases, and cooking mishaps, Felix knows that as long as Lane is by his side, they will find a way to set things right.

SO GOOD!

If you have read the previous books, then you understand the delicate dance of mystery, romance, inner struggles and comic relief. Lane and Felix continue their adventures and become embroiled in a family feud over an inheritance. There are returning characters and a few new ones that I hope will be seen in coming stories. I especially felt for Cal and would love to read his story and hope he gets his HEA.

Joel Leslie just gets better and better. I don't even bother with reading the ebook if I see that he's narrating. It is unbelievable that one person could voice so many distinct characters and convey the action and emotion so completely. He gives Felix the perfect "whine!"

I totally recommend this audio book and wait desperately for the next installment.

I can not remember the last time i was laughing so hard! I Even peed a little...
This book is just perfect, a perfect blend of humor, romantic/sexy times, good charaters and the best story.
I hope this series never end.
And Joel Leslie....! I always love him in every book he narrates, but this one was special. He is just excellent !

Simply superb.

If you’re looking for a fabulous action/adventure love story riddled with laugh out loud moments then this is the book for you. Brilliantly narrated by Joel Lesley who’s voice acting is outstanding in his field.
Highly recommended

love love LOVE & thirsting for more

The first two books were amazing, so I’ve had the third installment on preorder and shamelessly binge-listened in one day.

Honestly? I don’t think I’ve ever laughed this much over an audiobook.

Felix is hilarious with his antics and sticky fingers, and Lane is both indulgent and witty with his own comebacks and thirst for excitement. They have great chemistry, and together they’re either perfect for each other or terrible influences on each other. Actually. I’d say they’re both. And I’ve loved every minute of their love story.

Without spoiling, I’ll just say that the plot is filled with so many interesting twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat wanting to know more. Not only is there humor and action, but some lovely tidbits of emotion to balance it out.

New characters!

Cal. I love him so much and I need to know more of his story. I hope we get to meet Grayson in the future as well, but for now, I’m so happy to know we will be at least seeing more of Cal. He is definitely my favorite addition.

Antonio. He’s a great addition as well. I can see him being friends with Felix and Cal (with perhaps some reluctance on Antonio’s part). I hope we see more of him, too.

Frank. Not much to say without spoiling anything, but I enjoyed the scenes with him.

...

I plan to listen to more audiobooks from the author for sure. She’s brilliant.

As for Joel Leslie. As always, he’s phenomenal at created different voices and capturing all the emotions and personalities of each character. So glad he narrated this series!

So good

Felix and Lane are at it again!! I love serious yet unserious this book was. Yeah there are robberies, blackmailing, shootouts and chase scenes but with Felix behind them all you can help reading with a smile. You can see the bond growing between Felix and Lane and between Lane’s family as well. Excellent audio!!

Overall the funniest book within the entire series

Although, the series is only told from Felix point of view it is still the best book ever. I completely love Alice Winters book series, and she is one of the greatest LGBTQA mystery authors. I highly recommend this book series and also her other ones as well.

Funniest of the 3

Y'all I was dying I laughed so hard. It's funny, a little far fetched but a fun book all the same. Not boring at all even though there aren't many sex scenes. Alice's characters speak to my soul, I have this dirty wit personality so if you don't enjoy those type of people then this is not the book for you.

Great series, not as funny as the Hitmans Guide series but still up there.

Definitely room for more books to follow.

I was putting off listening to these for weeks. If you're doing the same my advice is DON'T.
Give them all a listen and you'll never look back. I've loved them and brilliantly narrated.

absolutely fantastic

The further madcap adventures of Felix and Lane! Once again, Alice Winters knocks it out of the park with a fabulously complicated mystery full of sass, snark, and sexy times. the new characters are fantastic and three set up for the rest of the series is seriously exciting.
Joel Leslie does a wonderful job as fiesty Felix and grumbly Lane. I love this series so much.

4.5 stars

I love this author and this series. This book seemed a little too meandering and running from one situation to the next at times so I nearly gave it 4 stars, but there was one section in the club where I was belly laughing because it was so funny (which is incredibly rare for me with a book), and the narration is fantastic (as always from Joel Leslie) so I gave it an extra half star.

Fun, fast paced, sexy and hilarious. Felix and Lane are delightful and the friends, family and situations they find themselves in make it hard to stop listening. Credit worthy.

Another hilarious adventure!

Slightly reformed and utterly unrepentant thief, Felix, and his boyfriend, blind undercover policeman, Lane, are hired to recover watches with codes that open a safe. As usual, the irrepressible and puerile Felix shocks and delights with his inability to take anything seriously. Add a sibling rivalry, an evil stepmother, a lovestruck male stripper, a sniper, and a pig, and you have another hilarious Alice Winters adventure!
