3.5 stars. Sweet story about a nerdy scientist and a traumatised Goth who fall in love. This author writes characters and scenarios that are total escapist fun, almost yaoi-like. I could visualise them all drawn on the pages of a graphic novel. And I certainly had to suspend my disbelief to get through some of the more unbelievable events. But the romance, the story of Fox's family and the espionage at Eddie's laboratory are very touching and kept me interested the whole way through. Overall it's a fun and satisfying read. There is also a surprise appearance by famous couple from one of the author's other books which I really enjoyed.
