Devlin and Garrick is the second book in Cameron Dane’s Seeking Redemption series and I loved the second installment almost as much as the first. With every story I read from Ms. Dane I am reminded what a talented writer she is and why I keep going back for more.
First and foremost Devlin and Garrick are two characters to fall in love with. From their initial meeting in San Francisco to their reunion five years later, I was hooked into the men and their lives from the get go. Through the use of flashbacks the reader was able to experience the intense, whirlwind first encounter that left both men in love in an impossible situation. The growth we as readers get to experience from then to now is phenomenal and the reason I cared so much about them. I knew them.
From the explosive sex between the men and the emotional journey kept me turning the pages long into the night. The only thing I had an issue with at all were the flashbacks. After the first few, I was too drawn into the present to want to keep going back to the past. I wanted more of the here and now to keep the story going forward.
In the end, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, can’t wait for the next, and I’d highly recommend it to others especially if they’ve read Aidan and Ethan.
Devlin Morgan and Gradyn Connell have one thing on their minds when they meet in a bar one Friday night in San Francisco. One good, hard fuck.
After the hell he’s been through, Gradyn knows the young man sitting at the end of the bar--with his sweet nervousness and beautiful face--is just what he needs. And Gradyn has absolutely no problem getting up to say hello.
Devlin knows inviting muscle-bound, tattooed Gradyn to his motel room is the riskiest thing he’s ever done, but there’s something in the man’s warm green eyes that tells Devlin everything will be all right.
One explosive encounter in Devlin’s motel room is the plan. Only, it turns out one hot fuck isn’t enough for either man. Dinner afterward leads to another round in bed, and what follows is a weekend together that stirs more emotions than either Devlin or Gradyn ever expected to feel.
Fast forward five years. Devlin has never forgotten Gradyn but he has moved on with his life. That is, until he walks into his sister’s workplace and comes face to face with the man from his wild weekend in San Francisco.
Except, this man is calling himself Garrick Langley. This man is a shell of the man Devlin remembers and hardly looks like the same person. And the biggest kick in Devlin’s gut? This Garrick Langley pretends he doesn’t know Devlin at all.
No. Fucking. Way.
Devlin doesn’t care what this man looks like or that he has a new name. Garrick Langley is Gradyn Connell, and they both know it. Devlin is a lot more secure in his own skin now, and he wants answers. This Garrick had better look out because Devlin won’t stop until he uncovers every one of Gradyn’s secrets.
Note: This title contains male/male acts of loving, including oral, anal and rimming. Also includes scene with mild bondage and spanking.
