Charlie is just your average everyday cowboy. Unfortunately, ever since getting a blow job from Joe, he can’t stop thinking about being gay. After meeting the mysterious Roman, Charlie soon realizes being gay is the least of his worries.

Of Wolves and Men by G.A. Hauser was one of the most unusual books I have read in some time. The story starts off a little slowly and, at one point, becomes confusing as it switches from Charlie and what he’s going through to Roman and the start of his problems. Once the story smoothes out, however, the reader will be quickly drawn into the men’s world.
The way these two meet is different than most. While the sex between them is intense - at times, almost feral - it is hard to see any real connection between them. In some ways this makes sense, as Roman and Charlie do not get the chance to spend real quality time together as Roman shifts between a crow, wolf, or human form when overly emotional.

While reading Of Wolves and Men, I found myself with many questions, some of which go unanswered. However, as the author is already planning a sequel, I am sure it will just be a matter of time before that is resolved. I will be waiting for the next story to see how Charlie and Roman fare and to find out who really cast the curse that hangs over them.
