2nd Edition
Galen Frost buys a house and a bait shop in a small Florida town to get away from his life as a semipro football player. When he meets good-time bartender Shane Barton, the heat between them is instant and intense—like the burn of good whiskey.

Galen and Shane don’t have much in common beyond their healthy libidos and their love of a good time, but the intoxicating heat brings them together like rain on the ocean, whipping up a frenzy of weather… good and bad. When trouble blows ashore, they will have to ride out the storm that breaks between them as Galen’s past rears its ugly head.

This book is different from a lot of books I read but I still enjoyed it.

Shane and Galen had an instant attraction that seemed to go from zero to a thousand in less than two seconds. Both men are total opposites. Shane is a party boy who is out for a good time and looks forward to the next party. Galen is an ex football player and mainly keeps to himself especially after a horrible incident a few years back that involved his ex and the man he trusted at the time.

Their attraction to one another seems to be the only thing they have in common. I have to say that the two men rarely ever talk to one another about anything serious and when they do talk to one another it usually involves things they want to do to the other sexually.

After some months together it becomes clear that though not intentional they both start to have more feelings then just lust for the other and it scares both men. But still they keep coming back to one another because the chemistry between each other is undeniable and hey cannot stay away.

Once both men finally except that more is going on between them other then a good time, they finally start opening up to each other about more serious things that has happened in their lives. Which is a good thing because Galen’s past is about to blow back into his life unexpectedly and is about to cause some major issues between Shane and Galen.

The question is, Can a relationship that was based off of sex and lust for so long be strong enough to wade to stormy waters or will that water suck them under and not let them back up for air again.

As I stated this book is different from other books that I normally read, even still it was a good read and I enjoyed it. I wish there would have been a little more of a storyline and a little less sex but it was still a good read and when the two men was able to keep their hands off of one another and the storyline took hold it was a very interesting read.

I am looking forward to the next book in the series about Shane and Galen and I hope that it has more of a story behind it because I believe these two men have a lot more to say then just sex and I hope to find out more about them and their relationship outside of the bedroom.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Rain and Whiskey (Stormy Weather #1) 2nd edition provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.

This is an extremely erotic read about Shane and Galen. These two men may start out being nothing more then bedroom buddies but after some time together things start to change to more. Everything is going good until Galen's past comes back to haunt him. Now the men need to figure out if they can weather the storm together or let go and possibly sink.

Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
