There is a reason for the way Bane acts but, underneath it all, I felt more of a wounded vibe and I appreciate the author making him a somewhat sympathetic character. Not too much so, or the book wouldn’t have been nearly as interesting. Noah was a believable boy for Bane as he has a spine and could stand up to Bane, and the people who surround him, when the situation demanded he do so. Making Noah a veterinarian with a soft heart hit the right notes for me. Noah’s father was a great character - wish we could have met his mother.
I could wish for a longer story that had more character definition, and depth, for the supporting cast members. As this is book 1, I’m hoping the author is planning to give some of the other characters their own stories. (Croc being mute and using sign language to communicate with Bane? Very nice touch - definitely want to hear his story.)
For any grammar nerds (*sigh* yes, like me) the book was mostly free of errors. The first sentence in the story (using “calloused” that should be “callused”) gave me pause, but it wasn’t a precursor to a poorly edited book.
Despite that, I was hooked fairly quickly due to the excellent writing, descriptions and a plethora of intriguing characters.
Noah Lavoie might consider himself an average Joe but his kind heart and compassion make him special. He sees more than others and yet can't find that person who can give him what he craves - rough yet gentle, forceful yet tender - it's either one or the other, and that is not good enough for him. When he is offered something slightly unconventional, he doesn't realize that it might be that perfection he is looking for. Before he knows it, he is happy, in love and wrecked for any other man but his Daddy. If only Daddy felt the same... I liked Noah's gumption. He went toe to toe with the scariest meanest mofos of Lormount City, and lived to tell about it. His care for his Daddy, his faith in him was humbling considering the betrayal and danger he faced. He didn't know that the man he fell in love with was the one to avoid at all costs. But in the end it didn't matter because Noah's body and heart was no longer his own.
Bane Rozek faced impossible odds, used everything and everyone to get to the top. He is who people have nightmares about, but even he is sometimes human. Even he feels lonely and wants what everyone else has - someone to love, cherish and protect. But who can stand to love a monster? When he concocts the plan to find a willing body anonymously, he never dreams that the times with his boy will be his peaceful harbor in the turbulent sea of violence and anger. Despite his vicious displays, blood and rage he tries to scare Noah away with, there are glimpses of a broken man who suffered enough, who needs someone to be there for him since no one ever cared to stay.
Their relationship is passionate, and their chemistry is explosive. Noah feeds Bane's need to nourish and protect, and Bane takes the burdens of everyday life from Noah's shoulders, takes the bad and hurtful away. I loved how in tune they were together like they were meant to be. Bane's friends came from all walks of life and were another component that added to the story, and made me curious about what made them tick. Another wonderfully angsty read that I highly recommend!
