rec: Owe You One by Helens
I was rereading this one and thought others might enjoy being reminded of it.
Title: Owe You One Author: Helens Link: Owe You One Warnings: adult themes, but mostly gen (From the author's summary) Summary: Nick Wolfe's having a bad day. Waking up blindfolded and chained to a wall is never a good thing. But when a guy named Adam comes into the picture, there's a little hope after all.
Why I like it: It's on the short side, so it is a fast read, but the characerizations are marvelous, and the banter is witty and smart-edged. A lot is alluded to, so the well-versed reader will grin to herself/himself, but the hints don't detract from the overall story itself for the general reader.
