I finally, fully understand why everyone raves about a Rain Carrington book. As you may know Warren has read and reviewed her books here on GGR-Review, well this time when the review request came in I snatched this one up without letting anyone else know. Selfish I know. This time you get a Rain newbie perspective.
This book has an awesome blend of characters and settings. In my opinion, Rain is a master at characterizations and intrigue. Her men Bobby and Levi felt so real to me, what I mean by that is that they could actually be a couple of guys that find each other anywhere. They are real men with secrets, flaws and whoop whoop a whole lot of sexiness. They could have met each other at any bar anywhere, that is what I mean by, they seem real to me.
Bobby and Levi met at the Honky Tonk and I was introduced to some of the characters out of the Honky Tonk series, which now makes me want to read that series.
I’m a big fan of Action/Adventure books and this book will leave you reeling, you never know what is going to hit you as you swipe to the next page and it has an ending that runs up on you, something unexpected.
Here is what I think after reading this. This book has all of the key components that excite me when reading. I love the realistic depictions of the characters, I like how the characters were drawn out as the story progressed, the action in this book is unbelievable and lastly the sexiness, this goes back to the characters having a realistic character. The sex was fantastically written and believable.
In the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico, lives a man who has secrets. Levi Kape watches people at a bar nightly, writing things in his notebook and trying to blend in with the locals. His secrets keep him from getting close to anyone until Bobby Dawes comes off the road after a long haul in his 18-wheeler. After getting to know Bobby, he realizes he’d never been close to anyone. That was about to change. Levi can’t settle down and not because he doesn’t want to, but because it could endanger his life. Bobby is a gentle, loving and strong man who doesn’t do commitment. He’s also a man that Levi wants more than anything, including his own safety. Danger causes Levi to leave but he can’t forget the truck driver that drove into his life, changing everything. When Levi leaves, Bobby goes back onto the road, trying to forget the “Golden God” he’d fallen for, but with some help from friends with connections to dark people and places, Bobby finds his man and swears never to let him go again. Can they save each other not only from the men who want Levi dead but from years of never seeking or finding the love they found in one another? Will the ultimate betrayal cost them the trust they need to make it work between them? Can Bobby save him, or be lost in a dark world alone…
