The plan was simple: get in, kill the target, and get out. Things got complicated, lines were crossed, and hearts were pried open.
My name is Rylan and I'm not who you think I am. I'm never who I appear to be. I am the wind. I am the shadow that fades quietly into the night. I'm an assassin and I'm here to kill the father of the man I love.

"We need a man with your skills, your heart and your dick."
Rylan is an assassin and a good one, at that. While on assignment, he doesn't have time for the young, beautiful man who's caught his attention, Gold, or for the man Gold has loved for years, Loxy. But what he tells himself he should do and what he actually does are two different things.
Rylan was great. Being inside his head might be one of my favorite places. He had me chuckling on more than one occasion with his internal dialogue and constant concern with his constant erection. Of which he had so many, he may have had cause for concern. He tries to stay on task and get the job done, but it's hard for him when he's aroused all day and can't keep his mind off all the pretty boys. Frankly, I don't blame him. I loved it when his mind was on all the pretty boys.
Let's talk about the sex. There was a lot of it, so much that this borders from erotic romance to porn without plot. But what I loved about this book was the variety in the scenes. It never felt redundant and I was never bored, actually I was anticipating what these guys were going to do next and what sexy toy they were going to use. There were lots of toys, lots of totally awesome toys. It's also very easy to get confused while reading a ménage scene, but I never found myself scratching my head wondering who was doing what and with whom. The ménage scenes were very well written and I could clearly picture everything that was happening. Lemme tell you, it was one great picture.
From the blurb and from what I've read from James Cox in the past, I was expecting some porn without plot. QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT was that, but it also had a sweet romance. Which was great, as I love me some romance in my romance. But because of this, I couldn't quite get the feel of the book. I felt like it was balancing between PWP and romance. I would have preferred it was one or the other, or that it had been longer. Because this was so erotic, when it came to the love story I just couldn't buy into it. I never really felt the love between Rylan, Gold and Loxy.
QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT was a fast-paced, action-packed adventure, with a lot of hot man lovin' sprinkled in. As usual, I bow to James Cox's ability to write fantastic sex scenes, quotable quotes and a completely entertaining read.
