What happens when everything you thought was true changes all at once? What happens when each relationship that means anything to you suddenly becomes far more real than you ever thought it would be? What happens when every moment becomes invaluable as all of them pass far too quickly?

Flash and Dazzle is the story of two friends who have known the best of times who develop a true taste for life during the worst of times. It is the story of the friends and lovers who enter their orbit, some for a long time and some only for a moment. It is the story of legacies, burdens, and the kinds of secrets that are only revealed when there’s nothing left to tell.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

A friendship like one “Flash” and “Daz” have is rare.  They meet in college and basically inseparable. But they have their secrets. In the course of this story we earn those secrets and so much more.

Lou Aronica writes a really good story and has created characters a reader can genuinely care about. It makes me wonder if he had a friendship like this.

This book was not exactly what I expected it to be. It took bit a little bit to get into the story but once I did I was almost afraid for it to end because I knew what was coming. I understand the cover now after reading the story but it was a bit misleading. I also think that is just what the author intended.

I do not want to give anything away because I hate when people do that but there is a very serious issue and the way these friends deal with it is very moving. I would have liked a little more depth in a few places but this is a solid story. It may have you looking at your relationships with some of the people in your life a little differently.
