Even though he left his home, going to New York in order to be with Blake, Ty is still not sure if he could trust the man he is coming to love.  Blake has had to put the past behind him in order to be with Ty, but he is not sure if he is ready to take on another sub.  Eventually the two men are going to have to make some decisions, but will that be the end, or just the beginning of their relationship?

Readers first meet Ty and Blake in Ty’s Obsession by author SJD Peterson, a story that had more of a HFN ending.  Back now in Riveted, the newest addition to the Whispering Pines Ranch series, the two men get an ending that is sure to make many readers happy. 

When the story starts, we find the men living and working in New York.  While all seems to be going smoothly, it does not take the reader long to realize that Ty still carries a lot of fear around with him.  Ty was a character that was hard for me to like when I first met him, yet by the end of Ty’s Obsession, I really hoped that things would turn out well for him.  As Riveted started, I was sad to see that the young man was still struggling with his inability to trust Blake.  However, Blake really stands out in this story, showing Ty patience and understanding, both things that the younger man needs.  The passion between these two is just as hot as when they first got together, which really heats up the pages of the story.  I loved the way in which Blake shows Ty that he plans on keeping him, and thought the scene wrapped up their story wonderfully.

There are some great scenes involving the secondary characters as well.  I really felt for Ty when he meets up with Blake’s mother, right after Blake got him all worked up.  I also had to laugh when Micah, one of Ty’s co-workers, sets his eyes on Tackett for the first time.

This short story is a fast read and one that is sure to become a fan favorite. While it is part of the Whispering Pines Ranch series, it also gives the readers a glimpse of the world in which the author’s next series will takes place.
