Devlin Morgan is ready for the next step in his sex life. Gradyn Connell wants to reclaim his sexuality, after years of denying it. What should have been one night of mutual satisfaction turns into a weekend neither man will ever forget. Is it enough to build a stable relationship on, or should it be chalked up a weekend fling?

Devlin and Garrick takes us back to one of my favorite small towns, where Devlin is ready to take a chance at love. I knew he would have an interesting story, but I didn’t expect it to be this fantastic. Gradyn is a great character with his complicated life and his deep love of Devlin. There are moments where it may have come into question, but in the end there’s only the beauty of the man who aches to give Devlin a happy life. Devlin is sweet, sexy and inexperienced, which makes his experience with Gradyn that much more enticing. The two have a long road ahead of them to gain happiness, but it’s a road I was happy to travel along with them. While the physical change from Gradyn to Garrick was remarkable, Devlin saw straight through the disguise. I could understand why it threw him for a loop and why he dug his heels in and wouldn’t allow his eyes to deceive him. There was no learning curve when it came to loving the man he met five years prior, regardless of the physical differences.

Ms. Dane allows us to view the characters in the present and past throughout this tale. Each new memory helps to explain their connection and why they should attempt to salvage their relationship.

I absolutely loved this story. There is so much to overcome, leaving no down time from beginning to end. The sex is explosive and spine tingling, laced with love, kink and an unspoken hope for a lasting relationship. The passion and compassion is written on the characters faces and expressed in silent pleading moments. Book two of the Seeking Redemption series has left me ready for the next story. Those who enjoyed the first story hold on to your hats and enjoy Devlin and Garrick.
