Whilst the tale started well, it got bogged down in the middle in a repetition of the guys 'will they?won't they?' stuff and with all the hate going on around them, rather than the love story, I found myself thinking amongst other things, that this is one place in Australia I wouldn't ever want to visit, how could a father hate his kid so much and why would they continue to have any kind of relationship with the verbal and physical abuse and with the name-calling and threats, and why so many locals seemed like people who'd barely evolved. There was too much unnecessary filler and negativity and tbh, the romance took a back-seat to it all.
Yes, the author gave us an epilogue about 6 months into the leads future, but it wasn't clear if this was going to be a HEA or a HFN or where they were living and whether they were safe now. Did I believe in them? Not really, as North did too much of an about-face to make the tale credible.
With a good editor to provide balance and weed out the filler, and with less hate, hate, hate and more love, this could have been a great tale.
Ok. So, this book did not work for me. The last 30-ish percent is the only parts I truly liked. A lot of it didn't work for me and I'm going to explain why:
First of all, this was the most anti-gay, gay romance book I have read. And what was worse is all of that came from the two MC's. They seemed to hate anything and everything that represented being gay except for having sex with another guy but even then there was some questionable things said, they especially seemed to have a problem with effeminate gay guys and anything that didn't represent macho men and the only time they weren't hateful was when a character had a rare, out of place insightful moment which just gave me whiplash. North's character was so selfish and I disliked him for the most part but when it came to his self loathing and fear I could empathise with him but then he went and done something selfish again. Will's character I liked for the most part but he had a huge chip on his shoulder too and was pretty hateful at times. I could get what the author was trying to portray but it came across as so anti-gay from the MC's which made it very hard to like. Every single time they felt any emotion other than anger, they apparently had to hand over their man card. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. It was very frustrating. Men in both MM and MF books can actually have emotions ffs. The only thing that got me to the end was my stubbornness.
The stars are for the last 30% which was decent enough and despite it all North and Will felt like a real couple. This book just didn't work for me. This was my first book by this author but if she happens to write another MM, I'll give it a go at the least, especially if it's Brandon's book!
If you asked me what it is about M/M books that I love/ enjoy the most I would say it's the red hot sex followed by the angst that is laced throughout them; Finding North ticked all those boxes making this one of the best M/M books I've read.
Will and North were best friends growing up together in a backward small town of Red Maine. During one summer at the age of eighteen their worlds become each other, losing themselves to each other over and over again. But in small town Red Maine the word 'Gay' is the devil itself, forced apart the once time friends barely speak but twelve years on is North finally man enough to fight for what he really wants and become the man he really is, for Will. This book is told in joint POVs, with the story moving from the present to twelve before.
Thanks to Carmen's amazing writing I've managed to do nothing but read this book over the last 24 hours, I couldn't put this book down for fear of missing something amazing, every chapter had me gagging to read the next one.
I know M/M aren't for everyone ( some would say to many bum holes) but this is a story that will tear at your heartstrings because even today in 2016 in some places around the world you are persecuted for who you love- no one can help who they fall in love with. This is a story about who you really are and fighting for what you want and not giving a rats about anyone else.
The love that Will and North share is a love of a lifetime that was thirty years in the making, so take a chance on them and read their story.
