Leap of Faith: Book Two
He can run, but he can’t hide…
Centuries ago, Hawk made a terrible mistake which has haunted him since. Fear of responsibility and feelings of unworthiness leads him to denying the mate Wha-tay showed him in a vision. So now Hawk runs his bar, has casual sex, and never, ever dates men with blond hair and brown eyes. But then Simon walks into his bar, and the future he’s feared is about to end up in a brawl if Hawk doesn’t do something—fast.
Simon Carter has a smart mouth and a bulldog temperament. So when Hawk runs, Simon pursues the sexy man, only to be rejected. Just as Simon decides to give up, someone—or something—visits him to change his mind… and scares him to death. Now Simon is backpedaling, and Hawk is in pursuit.
Desperate to reassure Simon and keep him safe, Hawk is forced to reveal his secrets before he’s ready. Can Simon learn to accept things aren’t always as they seem? Is the connection between them strong enough to help Hawk overcome centuries of pain? The only way the two men will move beyond Hawk’s past is for both of them to take a leap of faith.
In book II of the Leap of Faith series we get the story of Hawk and Simon. Now, since we roundabout knew of them from book 1, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It wasn’t the amazing story that came. We got mythology mixed with shifters mixed with 21st century mentality.
Can I just say it was fabulous? Hawk eschewed ever taking a mate and since he was given a vision early on that he would mate with a blond white man, he made sure to only have physical relations with men who didn’t fit the mold. However, you can’t quite mess with the Great Spirit, now can you? When she decides it’s time for you to meet your mate, you’re gonna meet him – whether you want to or not.
I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one? I LOVED! From Hawk’s spirit totem who consistently talked to him – there’s one sassy bird – to the other members of the tribe we ‘met’ in book 1, but now we know who they are. Also, I adored Simon. He was definitely a good match for Hawk.
Plus, I think I’ve spotted who the next book will be about. Come on Ms. Church! Bring on Owen and Douglas 😀
5 stars all the way around. Can I just say I can hardly wait until this series gets into audio? Can I put in a vote for either Iggy Toma, Mark Westfield, Paul Morey, or Nick J Russo as the narrator? Just a suggestion *wink*!
