Blurb: Scott O’Hara and Edgar Lopez have been partners in the homicide unit of Haydon Cliff’s Police Department for the last couple of years. Edgar is openly gay and a bit of a player. Though Scott is also gay, he keeps it to himself. Even from Edgar. Until one night, a slightly drunk Scott initiates sex between them. Scott doesn’t expect the sex to be repeated. He doesn’t do one-night stands or have casual sex-buddies. But Edgar has other ideas and Scott can’t seem to resist his sexy partner.
While they try to solve the mystery of who is murdering Haydon Cliff’s homeless, they also try to solve the mystery of whether Edgar’s heart can really be unobtainable.

Review: Unobtainable is a fast paced murder mystery; suspenseful, with some drama and a lot of heat, and I really enjoyed the interaction between the two MCs, Scott O’Hara and Edgar Lopez. This was my first time reading author Shawn Lane, and I have to say that though the story is short, it’s also very good.

I could quickly tell Scott is a very caring person. He cares about his Mother, his sister and her family, even a homeless lady named Betty. I also liked the ease of the conversations between Scott and his sister Ofelia. And even though he more than cares about Edgar, Scott’s afraid of having his heart broken again. All he really wants is a solid relationship with the right man.

Edgar, meanwhile, is portrayed as a player, though there really isn’t a lot of that going on in this story. To me he just seemed like a good guy, but because of mixed messages between him and Scott, there is some drama added to the story. Deena, Edgar’s mother, is a good character too, and I loved how she talked with Edgar and Scott.

For being a short story, Unobtainable is a page turner. It held my interest to the end, so sit back, relax and just enjoy!
