GENRE: Gay Paranormal Erotic Romance
LENGTH: 70,015 words
There's nothing like a fresh start, and for Randy, still nursing wounds left by a cheating ex and harboring a deep mistrust for all things corporate, Wolf, Wyoming seems like the perfect place to start over. Secluded, quiet, and self-sufficient, Wolf is bound to not only inspire, but to bring Randy the peace he needs. The view's not bad, either.Vaughn O'Connell and his family are Randy's only neighbors for miles, and while Randy knows it's somewhat unlikely that a man with three kids is gay, it doesn't hurt to look. When a misunderstanding brings Randy face to face with both Vaughn and his eighteen-year-old son, Lyle, Randy's not sure what to feel about either of them.But things are not what they appear in Wolf, and the closer Randy gets, the stranger the O'Connell family seems.EXCERPT:Note: may contain sexually explicit scenes of a homoerotic nature.
This was a really enjoyable book. The setup was good, and I enjoyed the characters. Randy is a funny, snarky guy who is prone to wisecrack at wholly inappropriate times (a man after my own heart!). Vaughn is a crusty local, grumpy but endearing in the end. The setting is lovely too – the descriptions of the area led me to Google Maps and using Street View to get a good look at the surrounding area. Oddly enough this actually allowed me to better appreciate the story.
The expected conflict between the normal and paranormal worlds is present, but Henley also adds an interesting additional interpersonal conflict that is a unique spin in what I have seen in the genre. This helps to elevates what might have been a pretty standard story into something memorable. I definitely recommend this one!
