This was a wonderful story. The characters were all so very real. Carrington did an amazing job writing the relationships amongst the entire group of boys. As a reader, I was able to glean all of their different personalities, their quirks amongst each other and the love that they had for each other.
The two main characters, Angel and Garcia had an epic love for each other. While I was slightly skeptical at the beginning of this book, it turned out to be an incredibly fast, easy read, with a lot of heartfelt moments, moments where I wanted to do real harm to some characters and a story that I loved watching unfold.
Angel and Garcia… two men, one soul. That’s pretty much all I can say about them. They are perfect for each other. The other boys/men in this story were just as vital; they helped create the family support network, despite both main characters having amazing families, sometimes the family you choose is even more powerful.
I would definitely recommend this story.
What is your all-time favorite book?
The Stand by Stephen King. There was not one thing not covered in the book, the aftermath of the virus killing off 98% of the population, the people left, the things left for the people to keep using! Then add in some supernatural stuff, and bam, you have a winner!
What is the last thing you want to hear before falling asleep at night?
I love you!
What talent do you wish you had but don’t?
Singing! I always wanted to be a singer, but I’m so tone deaf my dogs howl when I sing. Roseanne Barr is Pavarotti compared to me!
Rain Carrington started writing when she was just a teenager in Trinidad, Colorado but didn’t start writing M/M romance until much later. Through the years many of her gay male friends told stories of heartache and the struggle to find “the one” so she told them stories, fantasies all about them and their future cowboy, fireman, biker or policeman. When she found a writing site that encouraged her to write them down she started what was an adventure like she never had before.
Her first story, Cabin fever, about a young man searching for love and finding it wrapped in a member of a mafia family gained her readers who cheered for more. She knew then that she had found her place in the world. To make stories of love and kink that not only her readers but she could get lost in as well.
Rain now lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado but has traveled most of the US. Her last road trip to San Francisco gave her characters still coming out…no pun intended…in her newer stories. Rain has severe scoliosis which makes it hard for her to do all the things she used to love but it did give her the time to write that she never had before. She fights for lgbt rights from her home as best she can now and keeps in close contact with her friends that fight on two good legs to point them where they should go. She is a fervent believer that one door never closes without another opening so there are no limits she can’t get past.
Of all the people in the world no one has encouraged and supported her like her friends, many of them writers themselves, and her family. There is never a dull moment in her home where laughter is in the air 24/7 and everyone knows to avoid the computer screen when she sits in front of it. They never know what kind of beautiful man love they may see. Rain calls it research, they call it, “there she goes again!”
