Blems with this plan One is the neighborly citizens f Hog Mountain thwarting his dirty dealings at every turn with their kindness Another is Jackson Rhodes a closeted Hog Mountain police fficer who can see right through Cam’s.

Series one look at this cover and it was lust at first sight My brain screamed that I needed to read this book and then I did the worst thing I could possibly do I read the blurbwell that was it I was finished I needed this book Sometimes cover lust is a good thing and in this case it wa I d read the authors short stories previously and was really anxious to get my hoovesn his debut novel His writing is incredibly smooth and easy to read the kind where you don t even realize you re reading because you re so engrossed in the story and then you look up and two hours have passed and his style transitioned from short story to novel easily I couldn t believe how uickly the 240 pages went by and I wasn t even close to ready to let the characters goAnd h my the characters Cam is so flawed yet so amazing I was rooting for him from the beginning Even when he disappointed me I still rooted for him And I think that s what made him so memorable the author didn t try to sugarcoat his shortcomings r excuse them in any way Cam knew what he was about and he wanted to change but didn t really know how and was a little lost in the town Women and Social Work: Towards a Woman-Centered Practice of Hog Mountain Somef my favorite moments were when he would get angry when people were being nice to him His confusion was just so darn cute yet completely understandable He didn t exactly grow up in a friendly environment and being that he actually had a conscience a tough thing to have for a con it made me believe his evolution from predator to neighbor throughout the book Cam left the restaurant with a grumble at the unexpected customer service Sean called ut a sincere Have a great day as the door was swinging closed behind him What was wrong with these people Not that it wasn t great to have an entire town full f suckers who thought being neighbors meant being neighborly But did they have to be so nice about it Jackson is the golden boy cop who grew up in Hog Mountain and is very protective f the townfolk He doesn t trust Cam from the get go and with good reason The banter back and forth between the two "of them was fun to read There was an bvious attraction but there was nothing forced to move " them was fun to read There was an Sins of Treachery obvious attraction but there was nothing forced to move story along The relationship evolved as Cam s enlightenment did making the hard earned ground the two made that much satisfying to read Jackson is deep deep deep in the closet and my heart broke for the guy and the life he couldn t live becausef itCam s past comes back to him and the dude is hella scary with no compunctions about taking ut his frustrations with Cam n the small town that Cam has begun to think My Grandfather's Prison: A Story of Death and Deceit in 1940s Kansas City of as home Before Harold wreaks havocn Hog Mountain though Cam has been ingrained into the fabric f everyday life really by accident and honestly this was my favorite theme throughout the book I really appreciated how the author handled small town life So ften the small town becomes a caricature Whos Next? Guess Who! of a place that the reader expects insteadf another character in the book that adds to the depth f the story Yes Hog Mountain is a small town but the people who live there are not just small town yokels with backwards sensibilities and a permeating homophobic bent throughout Not that Cam and Jackson for that matter knew therwise Hog Mountain is no different than any Papi's Gift other place in that there are a myriadf personalities and beliefs just like in the city but because there are fewer bodies gossip travels faster and some attitudes are magnified just from the sheer lack f human traffic But the author didn t rely n that trope to build the setting he let the citizens have their voices and let them share their experiences with Cam and Jackson giving the whole town dimension and personalityThe towns lder generation was brilliant Sure maybe just a smidge too good but they embodied what we should all strive to be like in ur golden years Church was a big part グライネリエ 1 [Grainerie 1] of their lives not that the story had a lotf religious undertones but just enough to make the small town aspect believable and the attitudes relevant and for the most part they heeded the adage Do to thers as you would have them do to you The characters that became part f Cam s life remembered their wn past mistakes and regrets shared them with Cam and really showed him that change and redemption was attainable I could feel the hope radiating ff The First Socialist Society: A History of the Soviet Union from Within of Cam in those moments There was no telling Cam what to do there were meaningful anecdotes kindness and respect and then letting Cam do with them what he would And because Cam really was a good guy with a conscience he did the right thing It wasn t easy but it was important and it was meaningful The author really did an amazing job with those secondary characters and their interaction with Cam and Jackson I would be remiss if I didn t mention how much I LOVED Cam in full snark mode He loved stirring up shit when said shit needed stirring and it was hilarious It drove Jackson nutters but that was partf the fun Hog Mountain needed a little stirring and Cam s brand The Coming Revolution in Youth Ministry of forthright dialog was perfectly shocking while still being respectful enough to throw his targetff their game Also the kids the author his target File Under: Arson off their game Also the kids the author were well done for their ages and experiences They weren t precocious mini adult attention whores they were regular kids and the story was better for their presence Sure they were a vehicle for Cam s change and his journey towards becoming a responsible citizen but they were by no means an afterthought The family was fully fleshedut and just as important to the story Wicked Sense overall as they were to CamI would love to read about Jackson and his experiences with the town and his family That s not what this story was mainly about and too much detail would have beenverall too much given all the shit that got real in the end But I loved his heart and the scene towards the end in the Church and the sermon killed me to death in the best way I can t wait to see what the author comes up with next It will be an auto buy for meBuddy read and full review with fellow Uni Sheziss a copy f this story was provided for an honest revie.

25I am most definitely in the minority here but this book didn t really work for me Cam a former petty criminal moves to a small town buys an ld garage and begins working as a mechanic He scams people because he s a smooth perator and doesn t think much about anyone but himself Jackson a police fficer gets word f Cam s magical repair jobs not to be confused with magical blow jobs and begins to check up n Cam Jackson is a nice guy but judgmental He decides Cam is no good before he really gets to know him The book moseys along and I do mean mosey Almost nothing happens for the first half Dobys Lessons (Brats in Training of the story Jackson visits with town people Cam takes caref his cat The prose is plain straightforward and stripped down That seems to appeal to many readers but the lack The Texan Meets His Match of evocativeness and tension bored me I couldn t connect with the settingr the characters At 37 percent Cam has sex n page with a secondary character That pretty much killed the story for me Cam slowly changes and comes to care for people and Jackson realizes that Cam has a kind heart hiding beneath the tats and bad boy persona The focus f the story is how Cam finds acceptance in the small community f Hog Mountain The romance is not absent but certainly sparse the men don t even become a couple until the 70 percent markI was expecting passion not steam necessarily but a deeper connection between the men Alas there is some serious melodrama fuckery at the end when Cam s past comes back to bite him in the arse but this wasn t exciting as much as annoying I think this is a case f it s ME not you read the positive reviews and give this The Heretic's Handbook (Kindle Single) one a go if the blurb strikes your fancy 35 StarsI liked thisne But I don t think I loved it I found this to be a sloooooooow burn And up until around 50% the MCs Blue Guide New York only have a handfulf interactions with each ther And even after the 50% mark they aren t a couple until the very end I liked the story line and the second chance theme But I really felt like this book was about that then the actual romance between Jackson and Cam There is very little steam in this book maybe 2 3 sceneswith the big finale happening literally n the last pages Monsieur de Saint-George: Virtuoso, Swordsman, Revolutionary: A Legendary Life Rediscovered of the book I wasn t terribly up in arms about this I did like both Cam and Jackson I think the slower moving plot especially in the first half combined with the lower levelsf romance I just couldn t love this Garden of The Gods one Still a good read and I ll definitely read from this author Received from the author for an honest reviewThis wasne f the best books I ve read this year It s a story f redemption set in small town Hog Mountain Written with a southern style and charm it just invites you to set spell kick your shoes The Fruits of Graft: Great Depressions Then and Now off and grab a

attitude He was the town s golden boy but I came to like himnce I got past the facadeI grew up in a community like Hog Mountain and reading this beautifully written story was a bit Where Alligators Sleep of going back home I laughed shed a few tears and just felt a little sad when it ended Mr Huffman Black created two fun main characters in Camden and Jackson and used his magic to bring them from enemies to lovers The secondary characters are well developed and fleshedut The story is well paced and definitely character driven It s a story to get lost in and Saraswati Park one I ll definitely read again I am anxiously waiting for Mr Huffman Black s next novel Move along move along Nothing to see hereReally move alongOnef the first things you realize about the book I ve just read is that my kindle is totally hightlighed And if you begin reading all those uotes I decided to emphasize you notice very few are emotive sentences Ten Weeks with Chinese Bandits or poetic paragraphs They are not at all wise nor epic No what I underlined here were thoughts dialogues actions that really made it for me Because they were clever spotn neat and they followed my train f thought They put into words exactly what I was thinking at the same pace I was forming them It s as if the author was a step ahead f my mind and noting down exactly what I was going to say Every remark that threatened to come Young And Naive, Wasted Years outf my mouth was suddently silenced with ink I meant kindle ink f courseIt may sound creepy but in truth I love it when an author doesn t treat me ink f courseIt

directly to me no bullshit and no excuses getting in the middle just brutal honesty and neat smartness That s the word this book is smart in every sense that mattersIt may be shocking to say I laughed a lot here Buth my God I really laughed Constantly I was so delighted and happy as a clam you wouldn t believe It s not a humorous book if that s what you are thinking In truth there is nothing hilarious per se here Just the pposite serious matters are at stake for the most part f the novel "No It S Just That I Felt "It s just that I felt in sync with the characters that every thought f theirs hit the exact target within me and I couldn t hold my joy and exhilaration for too long I was a total fan f them I was in the first row in the threatre cheering them up and fangirling in an
