It is about: after a global viral apocalypse (Eve) killed millions of people, a young male prisoner (Brey) is set free by the prison guards but is later captured & used as a “Retainee” (slave) to be bought & used then a police officer (Hank) notices him & promptly buys him from a really despicable man (Thom). Hank then takes Brey to a small town (Waterfall) where he tries to the best of his ability to make Brey comfortable & content in this town but Brey just wants to leaves & find his family.
There is: friendship, comradery, drama, suspense, secrets, mystery, intrigue, implied sexual assault scenes (but not detailed), disinterest, collared, regrets, devastating memories, strange attractions, doubts, guilt, advice, nightmares, unhappiness, unease, deceit, betrayal, threats, danger, enemies, devious plans, attacks, explosions, decisions, determination, discovery, happiness, contentment, some steam & a well-deserved satisfying conclusion.
“I received a complimentary copy from Gay Romance Reviews, and this is my honest & voluntary opinion”
I loved the writing and the world the author created, I just wish there was more on page interaction and dialogs between different characters that appear in this book.
This is a first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last, because I had a hard time to put this one down.
As a heads-up, heed the description. I did, but I really wasn’t quite as prepared as I thought. Selling people so a town can survive is DARK, and people who agree to that are as well.
This is an emotionally intense/draining near-future slow-burn romance with a lot of not-quite-touched-on morality questions (hence the 4 stars - would have liked to see more on those). It wasn't easy, but it was worth it; I kept reading because this author can write.
The character development is detailed (love that), done through the current story and flashbacks (not a fan). The slow-burn is great when it comes to the MCs, but I would have liked more world-building within the plot, as I found it too hard to understand Hank at first. The man makes some seriously questionable decisions regarding Brey, considering how much he *knows* this town, where they’d rather have a coffee shop of sorts than stand up for basic human rights. Brey himself was just meh for me for nearly half the book, but their story sucked me in in spite of myself. There is an HEA for the MCs; I don’t know if my heart would have survived otherwise.
Copy received for honest review.
This book is heavier on the struggle, particularly mental, of the world the characters live in now and the emotional scars and wounds they suffer. While there is a mm romance and a happy ending, I don't feel it was the main focus of the story. I really enjoyed this book but I had to read it in chunks rather than one or two long sittings to get through it.
I received an ARC of this book and am leaving an honest review.
