Review - 9 out of 10 Larry Thumbs!!!

I loved this fic. It’s the perfect balance of great storytelling, entertaining characters, and absolutely crackling sexual tension. The boat dock scene… o m g.

Louis is such a wonderful character in this fic. He feels like a real person - full of snark and sass but also vulnerability and love. He’s put in a pretty stressful situation, and I loved how often he flirts with Harry to relieve the tension. Which, as you can imagine, creates an entirely different type of tension. 

Read this fic when you’re looking for a well written story with feisty actor Louis, flirty but capable and strong bodyguard Harry, and a scene with an opossum that will make you laugh out loud.
