What CC Is Reading

I very much enjoyed this debut novel by Davidson King. It's a hurt comfort with a bit of drama. 



I loved this story. Rich and Todd are so damn cute together. Rich is big and tough and Todd is smaller, but so much fun. They complement each other perfectly. I can’t wait for the next in the series!

Two Book Pushers

I think out of all of Cardeno C's books, this is one of my favourites and the audio one that I will listen to again and again.

Gay Media Reviews

All up this is an incredibly feisty, tear inducing, at times heart rending love story about two young men who have earnt the right to love and live in peace. I absolutely recommend this book to every m/m romance reader out there!

Love Bytes Reviews

I loved the characters and the symbolism throughout the book that reflects on our own 'pack lore' as humans. The book is paced just right so that as the reader you are drawn in and kept captivated until you finish the last sentence. I know that...
