The Two Gentlemen of Altona (Playing the Fool #1) by Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock



Mischief, thou art afoot.

Special Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness is having a rough week. Not only is he on a new diet, but he’s also been tasked with keeping Henry Page-the world’s most irritating witness-alive. Which is tough when Mac’s a breath away from killing the Shakespeare-quoting, ethically challenged, egg-obsessed Henry himself. Unless killing isn’t really what Mac wants to do to him.

Con man Henry Page prefers to keep his distance from the law . . . though he wouldn’t mind getting a little closer to uptight, handsome Agent McGuinness. As the sole witness to a mob hit, Henry’s a valuable asset to the FBI. But he’s got his own agenda, and it doesn’t involve testifying.

When evidence surfaces of a mole in the FBI office, Mac and Henry are forced to go into hiding. Holed up in a fishing cabin, they’re surprised to discover that their feelings run more than skin deep. But as the mob closes in, Henry has to make his escape. And Mac has to decide how far he’s willing to go to keep Henry by his side.


This book was so great. I loved it so much.
Both main characters were absolutely amazing. Henry made me laugh so many times, he has the mots delightful thing i’ve ever read, he was so fun. Mac was refreshing, the way he looked is not what you would expect a MC look alike but that made him more realistic, and made me enjoy him a lot more. On terms of his personality, i guess is what a reader might expect from a cop, a little bitter and sometimes rude but i liked him. The fact that non of them were perfect was something that i loved to read.
There wasn’t any moment on the book i didn’t enjoy, it was realy exciting and i always wanted to know what would happen next. The plot was great, the twists it had, even in the last moments of the book was simpy brilliant.
The realationship the characters built was a realistic one, full of doubts and taking it’s time, that made it better for me.
It’s always a hit, for me, with these two writers. Simply amazing.
