Top Customer Reviews
Coleman Wilder, a half-breed werewolf, has earned the respect of most people in the small town of Cranford, Tennessee because of the fine horses he raises on his farm. Life is good for Cole until his friend, horse shifter Jonah Marks, is found at a rescue ranch. Unable to shift back to human, half starved and beaten, Jonah who had been missing for a year, found salvation as well as love with Cole.
Finding Release is the first book in the Wild R Farm Series. The plot is centered on the emotional and physical abuse employed by religious terrorists, who exploit a twisted version of the Bible as an excuse to hide their psychotic personality. Being gay, along with growing up in a fanatical household, has left Jonah with emotional scars that are slow to heal. Jonah fears for his and Cole's life, he would rather run away than face his abusive family. However, Cole becomes Jonah's security blanket, which gives Jonah the courage he needs to face his enemy. Cole is openly gay yet he fears losing control of his wolf side. For this reason, Cole has never sought a relationship before Jonah returned. The unlikely pairing works well together. Each man provides what the other needs to feel mentally whole. The story also illustrates especially sensual intimacy scenes, expressing the underlying bond that had always been there between Cole and Jonah.
Silvia Violet has created an exceptionally impressive as well as thoroughly enjoyable saga. I look forward to the next episode.
Good setting too: small town, rough and rugged good guys (and bad guys), and simple farm living.
And guess what? Lucky me! There's already a sequel! The buck does not stop here (as it were)! I get to dive back in for more.
I would have liked to see more about Cole's past. But other than that I liked this book so much I bought the remaining released one's in the series and read them all in one day.
Shifter stories...I love them, but this is my first horse shifter and I liked the dichotomy between the two men...horse and wolf and how everything about their relationship goes against their animal instincts. But they work.
Not only are the animal half's at odd, but the men are too. Jonah is young...only 18 when the story begins and compared to Cole's mid-thirties, Cole doesn't think he has any right to chase after Jonah. No matter how much he wants to. But he pays for that decision when Jonah disappears for a year and when he comes back abused and terrified, Cole can't refuse him anymore.
Despite what should be a fairly dominant Cole simply because of his age and circumstance, I liked that Jonah is his own man. Never, besides just at first, did I feel like he was the younger, less dominant man. He pushes back against Cole when he doesn't like Cole's decisions. That made this dichotomy work for me when I don't think it would have otherwise. These guys have a true partnership and I liked that about their relationship.
I also really enjoyed the entire horse ranch setting. It's an interesting twist to have a wolf shifter owning a horse ranch because the horses are so skittish around him...with the obvious exception of Jonah.
Overall, I enjoyed the story and the setting. There were a few moments when the dialogue got a little too sugary and it pulled me out of the story, but I could overlook those for the most part. I liked the two main characters and a lot of the side characters on the ranch. It was definitely worth the read.
I'm a sucker for shifter stories and this was no exception. I really like how the author is using a horse shifter as a main character as its definitely not the type of shifter that you see very often. Cole and Jonah were great together as were the supporting cast of characters. The story was very sexy....ummm....cowboys and horses, DUH.......and the author wrote that very well. I look forward to reading more.
