Man of Mystery by Madeleine Urban

Dreamspinner Press

M/M Contemporary Mystery Romance

Reviewed by Ley



In a loveless marriage, with a shrew of a wife who belittles and browbeats him whenever she can, the only thing that makes Alan happy is his son and his books.  Alan, a stay at home dad with very little confidence in himself has absolutely nothing in common with Terrence, the charismatic sexy drifter who uses his body to get what he wants…except the fact that they are one-in-the-same. 

After a nasty verbal fight with his wife, Alan gets into an accident trying to get away from her.  Alan is taken to the hospital where Terrence awakens and so begins his adventure of a lifetime that leads him to Jared, a rich, older man who agrees to help him get to New York.  Jared quickly finds himself falling for Terrence even though he knows very little about the mysterious man.

Man of Mystery is okay, but not all of the dots were connecting with it for me.  The characters were great, I adored Alan/Terrence and Bobby, Alan’s son, he’s a sweetheart, but I felt there were gaps in the flow of the story.  With Madeleine Urban stories I know I will always get characters I love, hot sex scenes and some beautiful tender moments, Man of Mystery has all that, but the overall story just didn’t work for me.
