The strength of any Kim Fielding story is the characters. There is such a depth to the people and places in any Fielding book and this one is no exception.
Told in Landry Bishop’s voice, this is a story of two men finding their truth in the world. Both Landry and Jordan have been following the roles expected of them. While they have this is common, and while they are closer in age than they might seem at first glance, there is an optimism and vulnerability to Jordan that is endearing. Landry is much more guarded and purposeful. Watching Landry react to the innate curiosity and kindness in Jordan is a treat.
The chemistry between these two on the page is super hot! My favorite part of this story is the return to Landry’s hometown of Peril, Nebraska. The effects of seeing his home on Landry, and how it challenges his perception of not only his memories of the place, but his perception of himself, had me in tears. The angst level of this one was low on the Kim Fielding scale!
This was a great story that I started mid-afternoon. It was one of those books that kept me up until I could finish it. And yes, it was worth the cost of a full night’s sleep.
