My Rating for Finding Release: 4 Stars
Coleman Wilder is a half-breed, half wolf/half human and is battling each other inside of him. He is determined to not act like a savage wolf but it is hard when he feels like he is on the edge of being torn apart. As a gay man in a conservative town, Coleman keeps his head down and runs his business…until he meets a sexy horse shifter then his whole world is torn apart. For horse shifter Jonah Marks, Coleman is his sanctuary, his safe place after a year of being abused and stuck in his horse shape. But trouble is looming as Jonah and Coleman are forced to defend themselves, their love and the farm against a group of people who are determined to destroy the couple and others like them forever.
Author Silvia Violet delivers a highly emotional yet sinfully sexy story of half-breed werewolf, an abused horse shifter and more packed within the pages of Finding Release. I was blown away by the way the characters grew as the story went along. There is tension, sexual and otherwise, mystery, fear, forgiveness and lust that turns to love within the pages. Get ready to meet Jonah Marks and Coleman Wilder. Two different people yet the connection between them is very powerful yet scary at the same time. Coleman is feeling guilty for not being there when Jonah needed him and Jonah finds his humanity just in time when he looks into Coleman's eyes and remembers his life before he was forced to be in his horse shape for the last year. Silvia Violet captures the heartache, the pain of the abuse and how it lingers in someone as well as the healing power of love so beautifully, it brings tears to your eyes. When these two meet up again a year later, Coleman is determined to not let Jonah leave again and Jonah needs the healing power of Coleman's love for they need to face the one person who caused Jonah so much pain-Jonah's brother. Their love heals both of them even as it rescues them as well. This is a story that stays with you long after that last page is read.
Finding Release is more than a man meets man as they fall in love and live happily ever after. This is about forgiveness, of love in all its many splendid forms and strength to face your demons even as you feel your knees shake as you confront them. Silvia Violet conjures wide open spaces, sexy men on horses and all that encompasses a cowboy. Run-don’t walk-to grab this emotionally rich story and settle in for an afternoon of sexy cowboys & shape-shifters. I look forward to seeing where this author takes this new series and hope you can join the ride as well.
