Shattered Glass by Dani Alexander

Shattered Glass
Dani Alexander

A male prostitute, a mangy cat, a murder and a maniacal mix-up that threatens his career, his impending marriage and his life. Nothing is going as planned for Austin Glass.

Warning:  Do not drink liquids while reading this, you have been warned!!

Austin — seems to have it all. At least on the surface. A loving fiancee. A future with the FBI and a healthy sized trust fund. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to everyone hides a painful past he’s buried too deeply to remember. And his quips mask bitterness and insecurity. Austin has himself and most of the whole world fooled. Until he meets someone who immediately sees him better than he sees himself.

As events unfold and Austin’s world unravels, he finds himself pushed into making quick life-changing decisions. But can he trust Peter or what’s happening between them when each meeting seems to be just a series of volatile reactions?

"Austin, Alex, Idiot.  Whatever. I don't care.  Not about your name, not about your gayness or not gayness, not about your parents or your friends.  I don;t care about you perio........" ~Peter

I have had this book on my Kindle for MONTHS,  and I'm kicking my own ass for taking so long to read it.  Austin has to be the funniest character I have ever had the pleasure of reading about.  From his "I'm bunny-slipper-sexual" to "You made me gay at 26 years-old" he has the best one liners EVER. 

 The story starts in a diner where Austin sets his eyes on Peter in his bunny slippers for the first time.  Austin who is set to be married in 8 weeks to his childhood friend,  decides that he is gay.  "Straight-so to speak-to gay, Do not pass GO.  Do not collect $200. GAY." 

 Each chapter is labeled with the best titles, "Gay Sex 101 With Professor Peter" to "My Ass is A. NO. Fly. Zone".  Peter's little family that has manofested from kids of Mafia hitmen, is a story within a story. This story gives you: dirty cops, drug dealers, hustlers and Darryl (which I have no idea how to explain).  If you have not read Shattered Glass there is no time like the present.  Book 2 is set to be released in the near future and will be based on Peter's little brother Cai.

I give Shattered Glass 5 Bunny Slippers!!!

"Did you shoot him?  With what?  The bullets in my penis?"

"Glass?"  "What the fuck are you wearing?"

Looking down at his tuxedo "The only thing he had hemmed."
