The Boy with the Painful Tattoo (2014/2018) Josh Lanyon

Christopher Holmes has decided to take the next bog step–he and JX are moving in together.

JX found a house and Christopher has moved up to San Francisco.

Unfortunately, JX has to immediately head off to a convention, and when Christopher starts to unpack he finds something other than his grandmother’s china in one of the crates.

The clock was ticking. Somewhere. In a box we couldn’t find.

I really do like Christopher.

I dumped silverware in drawers, placed glasses on shelves, located J.X.’ s toaster, and opened a box of little jars of spices I had never heard of. What was Tajin? What was Egyptian dukkah? Did we even eat the same food?

And I especially like that Christopher and JX have to work at the relationship.

I laughed too, but I saw suddenly how it probably felt to him when he was trying to be serious and I made a joke.

And it is work. As is any relationship. Especially when both individuals are full-grown adults with complicated pasts and dueling careers.

This is a mystery, and it’s also a M/M romance, but I think there was less sex in this book than in the previous two.
