Series #1 Romance & Albright Series
Book given to me by author for giggles & review
Lowly art gallery assistant Caesar Romano is freely out of the closet. Now he’d just like to get out of his Nana’s guest room. Everything—his reputation and his financial freedom—is riding on the success of tonight’s gallery opening. If only he could shake free of the past so easily.
Warning: This book contains graphic language, sex, lies, intrigue, clowns, kleptomania, anal sex, oral sex, mutual masturbation, bad driving, good cooking, and the missing head of a Justin Timberlake statue. Not for the sour of disposition. –> Already I was taken in with “mutal masturbation”
You know when you are really excited to read a book and you have to go on a “time out” before you start it? That’s the phase I was in while jumping up and down to read Catch Me If You Can. I’ve been an LB Gregg fan since I asked Smexybooks what does m/m stand for? I’ve been a man love fanatic since then (just ask Mrs. Easy Peasey my kindle), thanks Smexy.
Cesar is a struggling gallery assistant is in the midst of throwing the most important gallery event of his young carrier. Hsis one goal is to make Johan Papp a superstar. Did I mention he creates busts of Justin Timberlake, Howard Stern and other celebrities? Everything starts to go downhill when he chokes on an olive after seeing his newly tannerexic, closted ex, enter the gallery..Add some oiled up, nude-chester waiters, a boss who is obsessed with clowns and an ex that won’t that is photographed in a compromising position and you have a cluster-F of magnanimous proportions. Christ he just isn’t getting paid enough to deal with this kind of crap.
Sexy Detective Green has been hired by Mallory Albright to investigate stolen pieces of art from her collection. Cesar is financially depressed and turns up as the most likely perp in Private Dick-ehem, I mean Green’s list of suspects. All signs are pointing towards out of his prime Brandon with an seriously odd cosmetic surgery addiction. With Dan’s help Cesar is going to find the lost missing head of JT so he can move out of his nana’s house.
- Someone steals the bust of Justin Timerberlake, valued at over $15K.
- Cesar’s ex, found naked in the gallery bathroom smelling of puke and wearing stolen evidence of the missing bust of Justin Timberlake around his woo-ha.

- Cesar trips on weirdo boss’s used condom he left on the floor in his office.
- Detective Green likes to talk dirty…you naughty, boy you.
-And finally, a transsexual waitress (waiter?).
I absolutely loved everything about Catch Me if You Can. LB Gregg’s is one of those authors you have to pay close attention to each and every word because she is just so damn funny. I actually went back and re-read most of the book in case I missed any of the sarcastic, nuances of Cesar’s inner monologue.
Cesar: What was Shep wearing? ….cowboy boots. Everyone knows that Shep likes to be ridden.
(after Cesar nearly chokes on an olive after seeing his ex)
“I’m just a little embarrassed, that’s all. I’m sure the gin will kill any bacteria.” (Cesar)
“Oh don’t be silly. Sometimes we swallow wrong. You need to swallow slowly, dear” Mallory sipped her martini. She smiled with good humor at the (art) bust of Howard Stern.
I couldn’t possibly comment…(Cesar)
I swear only LB Gregg can keep me on my toes not only does she fabulously work in a Justin Timberlake bust, a transvestite, and a crying game scenario – her quick wit and sexy scenes kept me smiling all through Catch Me If You Can. (Clears throat) including a verra hot (in the) closet scene between Dan and Cesar.
Final Verdict. For those of you who haven’t ventured into the male/ male romance, LB Gregg is a great author to “wet your whistle”. I swear. You’ll become a convert. Trust me on this. If you loved Gobsmack and Cover Me, I dare say Catch Me If You Can is one of my favorite male male romances this year…okay maybe two years. And I close with the motivational words of pop sensation Brittney Spears after reading this book all I can say is “Gimme More” .
