    Once upon a time I dated a boy who persistently called me schatje which is baby in Dutch but somehow has a worse connotation I was young and superficial and he was the stud of the class so I let it slip for a while What can I say? Madison Avenue had not yet scored its educational monster hit Until this day however I think there is a time and a place for endearments They should not systematically replace someone’s name nor should they be used loudly in public and above all my mm books should not be littered with themWhen one tough bloke calls the other tough bloke honey I feel my toes curl up a little So far there’s only been one man who dared to say baby than once and pulled it off too Jake from the Adrien English mysteries And only because he dosed those baby’s pretty damn well and let's face it Adrien fits the baby bill The Slayer's Apprentice almost breaks 3 of my ground rules Police officer Daniel Hart meets a slender black haired teenager who works in a bar and has the habit of spitting into the drinks of his customers and stealing their wallets Daniel knows this yet asks the boy out anyway On their first date he immediately throws in a honey and 2 whopping darlin'sAnd there’s no excuse really to be so slimy so soon The guy’s name is Phoenix That’s a pretty cool nameIt’s not Elmo he has to work aroundI read a few excellent reviews for this book And I wish those reviewers had written the actual book Because I’m afraid I was a little less impressed with The Slayer's Apprentice The plot revolves around said cop falling for Phoenix who lives with his little brother He obsessively cleans when feeling stressed until the bleach bites into his skin He doesn’t trust anyone has 5 deadlocks on his front door alone and is a compulsive liar In a nutshell he is a little Insane in the Membrane At the same time a notorious serial killer intensifies his little game of Cat and Mouse with the police Lead Detective Somerset is desperate for clues And Phoenix may or may not be able to lead him to this killerWho isn’t intrigued by psychological disorders? I wondered about Phoenix’ issues and those of the serial killer However the author simply offered textbook examples of sociopaths and did so in a tell not show manner The writing was clinical and choppy at best The story didn’t flow as much as I would’ve liked and seemed to be offered in chunks with POV switches between paragraphs social workers psychologists Detectives Phoenix' parents they all got an OVERLY explanatory POV of their own The main characters were one dimensional and only Phoenix was mildly interesting because of his obvious defects Although I never actively hunt for inconsistencies in books I found certain aspects of the plot extremely implausible 1 I’m not buying the fact that an almost 30 year old cop would put his entire career at stake for a good looking but cunning spitting and defensive 18 year old he just met in a bar2 There's no way the authorities would approve of the decision to leave a kid brother view spoilerwho turns out to not be his actual brother in Phoenix’ care after a very worrisome mental meltdown AND his link hide spoiler
