♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Another emotionally charged romance by Cameron Dane from the Redemption series. In this story, readers get to get a better look at Devlin, Aiden's brother from the first book. Devlin takes a trip to San Francisco with the express goal of checking out a man. He meets Gradyn and falls in love with him in one weekend.
Throughout the book the author does flash backs of the weekend Devlin and Gradyn spend together exploring the emotional attachment the two develop together. Both know they time has to come to an end at the end of the weekend, but years later the two men can't forget each other. When Graydon lands into to trouble his first thought is to go to Devlin.
The only problem is Gradyn must remain dead to the rest of the world. His appearance completely different from the way Devlin remembered him, Gradyn isn't sure Devlin will even recognize him or if he will even want to see Gradyn, especially after the way Gradyn ended things.
For those who like romance books filled with conflict, emotions, gay romance and a great love story this book, and this series so far, have all of that. I'll be interested where the author takes this series next.
Devlin Morgan and Gradyn Connell have one thing on their minds when they meet in a bar one Friday night in San Francisco. One good, hard fuck.
After the hell he’s been through, Gradyn knows the young man sitting at the end of the bar--with his sweet nervousness and beautiful face--is just what he needs. And Gradyn has absolutely no problem getting up to say hello.
Devlin knows inviting muscle-bound, tattooed Gradyn to his motel room is the riskiest thing he’s ever done, but there’s something in the man’s warm green eyes that tells Devlin everything will be all right.
One explosive encounter in Devlin’s motel room is the plan. Only, it turns out one hot fuck isn’t enough for either man. Dinner afterward leads to another round in bed, and what follows is a weekend together that stirs more emotions than either Devlin or Gradyn ever expected to feel.
Fast forward five years. Devlin has never forgotten Gradyn but he has moved on with his life. That is, until he walks into his sister’s workplace and comes face to face with the man from his wild weekend in San Francisco.
Except, this man is calling himself Garrick Langley. This man is a shell of the man Devlin remembers and hardly looks like the same person. And the biggest kick in Devlin’s gut? This Garrick Langley pretends he doesn’t know Devlin at all.
Devlin doesn’t care what this man looks like or that he has a new name. Garrick Langley is Gradyn Connell, and they both know it. Devlin is a lot more secure in his own skin now, and he wants answers. This Garrick had better look out because Devlin won’t stop until he uncovers every one of Gradyn’s secrets.
Note: This title contains male/male acts of loving, including oral, anal and rimming. Also includes scene with mild bondage and spanking.
