Loki Renard is evil. That’s all there is to it. She is just pure evil, just ask Bobby and Mark. They will definitely tell you. Perfect Evil is the sequel to Taken Boy. You could read PE without having read TB, if you really wanted to, but you will not get near as much enjoyment from it. Knowing Angelo and Bobby’s story will help you to understand the changing dynamic when Mark gets added in.
So, here’s our story. It’s been some time since TB. Angelo and Bobby are still together. They don’t have the easiest relationship in the world, but they are making it work for them. The FBI is trying to put together a case against them, which means they are following our man and his boy around. They tried to bug everything, but Angelo is just a wee bit smarter and a helluva lot more paranoid than FBI are, so he has everything scanned for bugs constantly.
Agent Mark Locke was in the military and now he’s in the FBI. This is his first field mission. He’s gay and his teammates know it, but generally, no one is making a thing out of it. He also uses anti-anxiety medication, which he hides from his teammates, because he knows that they would rag on him about.
His team hears about a party that Bobby and Angelo will be at. The person throwing the party usually brings in some pretty boy escorts to act as man candy. So, his team figures since he’s the only gay member of the team and he’s very good looking, that Mark is going to be the one that is going in. Instead of anyone actually trying to figure out what the man candy would actually wear to such a party, they dress poor Mark up in ’80s leather boy style. That, of course, makes him stand out and not in a good way. Mark has everyone’s hands on him at some point.
Then, bullets start flying and Mark gets hit. Angelo decides that he’s going to grab him up and take Mark with him and Bobby. He’s not sure why he’s doing it, but he trusts his instincts, and his instincts say to grab this guy and take him, so he does. Angelo directs Bobby to drive them out to a house in the country.
They get there, and the fun and games get started. I’m not going to even say anything about the fun and games, except for the fact that Angelo is a right bastard with an incredibly inventive and sadistic mind. There isn’t a whole lot of safe, sane, or consensual about anything that Angelo does.
OK. You know the deal. Angelo has plans and schemes and more plans and schemes inside machinations and manipulations. I would never want to play chess with Angelo. I’m pretty sure he has already won the game we were playing and the next one and the one after that. I wondered how Bobby was going to handle having Mark around, and it was… interesting. I need more of Angelo, Bobby, and Mark so that I can watch their dynamic play out some more. Angelo may be evil, but he’s my kind of evil.
Since it’s a short book, there isn’t a lot I want to say about spoilers. But, I just want to say that I’m pretty sure that electricity isn’t going to be someone’s friend for a while. Also, the last chapter was a very interesting chapter when it came to Angelo. Gave some me some insight into him. I need more of Angelo. All the Angelo.
So, go check it out, it’s only $2.99. Happy reading!
