When we rejoin the two men, they’ve moved beyond the initial infatuation stage and started spending weekends together…well…sort of. Rick is still in a panic about Mal coming to his tiny village of Slopy Bottom because it is so tiny that everyone knows everyone else’s business. How will he hide that he and Mal are seeing each other if he comes? So he is making excuses right and left and going to London to see Mal instead of Mal coming to see him.
Then Mal surprises him by already being on the train out from London when he calls him. Rick can’t back out this time, and Mal arrives for the weekend. What follows is a series of weekends as the men get to know each other better. But will the residents of Slopy Bottom, who have known Rick all his life, understand what is going on? How will they react?
I’m really hoping we get some more of their story. This one ends in a great place, but I’d like more! What happens with Malik’s mother, sister and cousin? What is the story with some of the other men in the sleepy little village? Inquiring minds want to know! Well…at least this one does!
I highly recommend this story. If you’re in the mood for a feels good type read, it would be perfect.
Resistance is book 1 in the Village Love series, however, I suggest picking up Resonance, a short story that shows us how Mal and Rick met and is currently free at ARe (until July 31st), because I have to admit I was feeling a tad lost until I did.
Rick and Malik met in Resonance when Rick had to go to a different hospital to get an MRI of his shoulder and they hit it off, deciding to start a long-distance relationship.
In Resistance, Rick and Malik are still going strong, however, they have a few hurdles that they need to get over if they plan on continuing their relationship. Namely, Rick's reticence at having Malik visit Slopy Bottom, the village where he's lived all his life and where he's the handyman. Rick is not ready to be out there, even if he is all for the PDA whenever he visits Mal in London. And Mal isn't ready to introduce Rick to his family, since he's not sure they'll be able to get past Rick's issues. Would they be able to find a happy medium and a way to get their happily ever after?
I adored Rick and Malik, they were very likable characters and despite them both doing some things that made me want to slap some sense into them, I couldn't just not love them anyway. They were awesome together and had the kind of chemistry and love you know it's everlasting.
The villagers were amazing as well, and having them interact with both Mal and Rick, gave the book depth and many scenes that had me laughing out loud. I'm very eager to find out who will get their book written next, Smudge, Adam or someone else entirely? Anyone it is, I'm definitely going to be waiting for it eagerly!
This was one of the most disarmingly charming British books I've ever read, it was funny, sweet, romantic with fantastic characters that I fell in love with. Definitely recommendable!
Rating: 4.5 Stars!!!
Mal & Rick first met in Resonance (Village Love 0.5) but that story doesn’t need to be read first as you can pick up the story in Resistance quite easily.
We join Mal and Rick as Rick is trying to dodge the arrangements that he made with Mal to come to his sleepy village, he’s made excuses in the past and stayed at Mal’s but this time Mal is determined to visit Rick’s home. Hiding in the closet is hard for both of them but Rick is scared that coming out to his village will have his friends turning their backs on him, Mal loves village life and doesn’t think that Rick’s friends will react the way that Mal fears.
I enjoyed this story that is pretty easy going with just one or two instances of tension; both Mal and Rick are great characters that you can easily see care a lot about each other. Rick is well thought of in the village but he has always hidden that he is gay, his relationship with Mal makes him think about that choice because both man want more than a relationship behind closed doors. Mal is wonderful as he patiently waits for Rick to be more open with his friends, and while Mal’s religion does play a small part in this story with his family it doesn’t really come into play with his relationship with Rick.
I have to admit that some of the secondary characters made this story shine just a little more; Edna, Rick’s elderly neighbor, was a little star she shone brilliantly in the couple of scenes she was in. Smudge was a shining beacon as he lends a shoulder to Rick, I’d also love to see Smudge’s story in the future. There really are some fantastic characters in this story, each one having a clear personality and some seem to have secrets that hopefully we will learn in future stories in this series.
I recommend this to those who love village stories, fantastic characters, overcoming fears, budding love and easy going stories where love shines through.
