It’s Valentine’s Day, and grad student—and male escort—Levi Barron expects to spend his evening with a client who’s paying him for his services in bed… not an assassin who needs to borrow the view from his hotel room in the morning.

With nothing to do but endure the company of his unwanted guest, Levi and the assassin, Sinjin, spend some time bonding over HGTV, minibar beverages, Flannery O’Connor short stories, terrible Valentine’s candy, and the necessity of lying about their jobs.

Their evening takes an unexpected turn when they decide to indulge in their mutual attraction, and in the morning Levi doesn’t know if he’s spent the night with a hired killer or a hydraulic engineer with a very specific fantasy. Either way, the two have enough chemistry—in and out of bed—that Levi isn’t sure one night with Sinjin will be enough.

And a message left in candy suggests the feeling is mutual.

My View:

Here I sit a couple hours after finishing Conversation Hearts by Avon Gale, and I am still unsure what I want to say about this book. I think it is a story you will either love or hate. It is not your typical lovey-dovey Valentine’s story. Hell one of the main character may just be an assassin.

This is a story designed to leave you guessing. It is designed for those of us about there who don’t fall all over themselves about V-Day. For those of was who want a little twisted with our potential love.

Levi and Sinjin are certainly a twisted pair. Regardless of their actual rolls in each other’s lives, they are certainly twisted. Not wanting to give away the plot, I am going to stop here. If you like twisted aromantic but hot v-day “romances” give this one a shot.
