Shattered Glass by Dani Alexander

Shattered Glass by 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.

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?


He is the next best thing to happen to me since Logan Mitchell!!! 

I love, love, love his banter with Luis, his Detective partner. You really feel like they are a real team with all the shit that gets talked between the two.

At first the title threw me off, I thought it was too hilarious to sound so "sad", but as you continue reading, you finally understand the title.

Here is where some spoilers may come in, if you don't want to see them, I recommenced you quit reading ;)

Austin, a straight, engaged, Police straight as they come right?? Until...

"Blue eyes. No, not just blue, blue like glacial waters like romantic poems, like heavens and moonstones. Cornflower blue.
Blue like romantic poems? What the ever living fuck?"

OMG- I about pissed my pants at that!!!!! this guy is such a tool!

and by the Way, he is referring to Peter, the broken boy, the stone angel, who likes to wear bunny slippers...yes, you read that right...BUNNY.SLIPPERS. 

Could this story get more funny and out of control? YES, Yes it could!

"I'm bunny-slipper-sexual"
~ enough said!

Austin goes through a series of denials, and very, very bad decisions. But he owns them and plows on through, until everything around him just seems so fucked up.
 Through it all, he seems to never lose his hilarity though. 

Complete defense mechanism. 

He struggles with relationships around him, apart from his partner (usually), and even when he decides to pursue Peter, Peter even tries to reject him. Their "relationship" is VERY shaky, and there is zero trust.

 Austin's head is not screwed on all the way when it comes to Peter, and it is quite intriguing (and a bit like a train wreck) to watch as it unfolds.

There are many twists to keep you captivated, and enough "gay" metaphors to keep your gut clenched in laughter.

I said it once, I will say it again... I LOVE AUSTIN GLASS!!!

I give this 5 bunny slipper stars!!!!!
