After the Rain by Daisy Harris - Review/Giveaway

After the Rain
by Daisy Harris

They’re going to need a bigger tent...

Fire and Rain, Book 2

Henri’s list of bad exes is as long as his arm, but nothing prepared him for his latest, heart-stomping breakup. He thought he couldn’t feel more abandoned, until his ride for a group camping trip bails, leaving him stuck driving for hours with a guy who is absolutely not his type.

After breaking up with his girlfriend of five years, firefighter Logan is working up the nerve to explore his interest in men. He knows he’s gay. He just hasn’t had the guts to do anything about it...until now.

Henri’s big-city attitude and tight jeans push every last one of Logan’s buttons, and when he and Henri have to share a tent, Logan is thrilled. He should have realized Pacific Northwest weather would get wet—forcing them to strip naked.

Though the steam between them is thicker than coastal fog, Henri’s not sure he can let himself fall for another man. Not even the guy who finally treats him right.

Warning: Contains bad ex-boyfriends, even worse weather, and more than your average amount of sex in a tent. May not be suitable for those with germ phobias, outdoor aversions or fear of damp shoes.

After the Rain was a quick and enjoyable romance that highlights that opposites really can attract. Logan and Henri are very different people thrown together on a camping trip with some heavy issues hanging between them. As always Ms. Harris does lend an excellent eye for details and writes well rounded and very believable characters. I really liked how down to earth and normal Logan was and how very different Henri could be. Henri was very likeable but definitely prickly at times and I really enjoyed that about him. Together they have great chemistry and I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

I definitely recommend this to fans of MM romance where one of the partners is still feeling out what it means to love men.

I received a copy in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my review.

Birkenstock-wearing glamour girl and mother of two by immaculate conception, Daisy Harris still isn't sure if she writes erotica. Her romances start out innocently enough. However, her characters behave like complete sluts. Much to Miss Harris's dismay the sex tends to get completely out of hand.

She writes about fantastical creatures and about young men getting their freak on, and she's never missed an episode of The Walking Dead.
