This is Johnnie’s story. It is more than just the love story of Jonnie and Sander it is much more. Johnnie is a gay spy for the CIA. This is an exciting story of a young man discovering himself and discovering young love as well. The relationship with Sander is exciting to watch unfold. This is all new for Sander and English is not his first language either. Watching him struggle for the right words is paced nicely with the story as they both struggle to express their feelings.
Johnnie did not set out looking to become a spy he rather fell into it. Now that Jonnie and Sander are lovers, Sander’s life is in jeopardy too. The adventures that follow are very exciting. At first when I began reading the book Sander’s English was a big distracting until I got to know him and I found him endearing and I think that it lended to his authenticity. Knowing that the story was based on a real gay CIA agent made the story more fascinating. I also liked Johnnie’s Superior Agent and the opportunities that we got to know her in the book as well really added dimension to the book.
Happy Ending’s Sleepover was different than I was expecting but I really liked it. It was nice to remember what the world looked like to someone so young and to so some many beautiful places in Europe made it a treat.
Johnnie is a 20-year-old American kid who moves to Denmark to attend school. He meets Sander, age fifteen, at a party one night and the two become fast friends. But Johnnie has a secret, and it has nothing to do with his burgeoning sexuality. Johnnie works for the CIA in field transportation, infiltrating agents and exfiltrating valuable assets all over Europe. But complications arise when Sander learns of Johnnie’s career at a time when secrecy is paramount to the success of a life or death mission. Cade Jay Hathaway’s Happy Endings Sleepover is a taut thriller with a young, gay eroticism that makes it an irresistible page turner.
