Anniversary Review Tour ~ Foxes by Suki Fleet

2016 Rainbow Award Winner - Best Gay Young Adult

Blurb

When Dashiel’s body is found dumped on an East London wasteland, his best friend Danny sets out to find the killer. But Danny finds interaction difficult and must keep his world small in order to survive. By day he lives in an abandoned swimming pool and fixes electrical devices to trade for supplies, but by night, alone, he hunts sharks—a reckless search for dangerous men who prey on the vulnerable.

A chance meeting with an American boy selling himself on the streets throws this lonely existence into disarray. Micky is troubled, fragile, and Danny feels a desperate need to protect him—from what, he doesn't know. As Danny discovers more about Micky, he realizes that what Micky needs saving from is the one thing Danny can't help him fight against.

To save Micky, Danny must risk expanding his world and face something that scares him more than any shark ever could: trusting he will be accepted for who he is. If a freezing winter on the streets, a sadistic doctor, and three thousand miles don’t tear them apart first, that is.

Thank gods for my de-puffing eye serum, because my heart just got kicked in the ass and I'm going to look like shyt Tomorrow! 

Suki has been ony author watch list forever. I own many-a-fleet books, but I haven't had the chance to read them yet. When the opportunity came-knocking to do an anniversary tour for Foxes I was like "aww suki-suki, let's do it!!" ((pun totally intended)) 

I'm glad I did. Meeting Danny/Loki is kind of life changing. I think he's my new favorite "person". 
Danny is homeless and his best friend is a rent boy who sees beyond the "slow kid" who likes to fix things and scarring on his face. Dashiel saw his heart and the fact he smells of flowers and couldn't hate a soul. When Dashiel goes missing and his body shows up in the wastelands, Danny makes it his mission to find his killer. 

While out and about taking notes in his pad, he gets called over by one of Dashiel's friends, one of the guys who loves picking on Danny. This time it's to offer him a job helping fix something for a friend. This friend changes Danny's life. We meet Micky, transplant rent boy from the US. To Danny he sparkles like no one has ever sparkled before. Only it's not easy for Danny to talk, trust, or love openly. The chemistry between them is a slow burn, but no less intense. It's such an incredible journey to watch. The "realness" of this book is magnificent and the way it's written just feels so intense. I can't really explain the style it's written in, but it feels deep and raw and captivating and I loved every second of it, even the painful seconds. 

Danny and Micky become closer and Micky even helps Danny go "shark hunting". Danny even finds Micky in a horrible way, a few times, and it just hurts your heart. But it's Danny that keeps it going, you just seriously cannot NOT love him. Things look shitty, but he works through them. He's so brave and he doesn't even know it, and that is why he's so endearing. The fact that he couldn't even hate Dashiel's "killer", which in turn makes him want to change, says even more about Danny. I just want to squeeze him, but I don't think he'd like that! 

I even loved how realistic Micky's ailment was, even at the end. He didn't just magically "get over it" in the end, no. He struggles to fight his internal sharks, and will continue for a long time. They end on a high note, bit with a long way to go. It couldn't have ended better. 

I give this 4.5 "what is normal" stars!!

Synopsis A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story. The hunt is on… and he’s the prey.

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What hedidn’twant was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time.


Dana Cadby had grown up labeled a roughneck from the wrong side of the tracks. He’d fought, scrounged, and survived despite a father that constantly told him he couldn’t. Dana pulled himself up by his own boot straps and made a name for himself in the marksman community. He’d been Duke’s bounty watchman for five years. It was his job to ensure th…
