Leah Sharelle and her Wounded Souls guys were new to me, but they are definitely going to go in my MC rotation, and yes, there are times when I go on MC kicks, so I have collections set up on my Kindle so that I can read them when I want. It is a serial, but the books focus on different couples. The books are part of an overall storyline. His Man is a novella in the series, written because people wanted to know more about Ford, and really, I totally understand why, because Ford is freaking AWESOME.
Before I talk about Ford and Lucky, I need to talk about the real star of the book, Shiloh. She’s the Wounded Souls’ princess, and is 4 going on 21. She’s just a delight, and I really loved every interaction with her. I can’t wait to see her all grown up and to see her in her book.
Anyway, the majority of the Wounded Souls, or at least the base group, were in the same unit in the Australian armed forces, and they went through some shit, and it ended up with friends dead. While they were in the Sandbox, Ford and Bryce, AKA Lucky, had a secret relationship. Well, maybe not relationship so much as a series of encounters. Ford has always been out, and most of Bryce’s brothers in the MC know that he’s gay, but he’s closeted. And now that they’re both back and both in the same MC, there’s a lot of tension. You see, Lucky is engaged to a woman and is playing straight for his family, which is killing him and is hurting Ford so bad.
Like I said, I think that Ford is pretty awesome. He’s really comfortable with who he is. He is also the cool uncle to all the kids of the Wounded Souls, and they all love Fordy, because who wouldn’t? I’m back and forth on Lucky during this book. I think that most of my problem with him is the fact that he’s not comfortable with himself and he’s walking with a foot on each side of the line and it’s tearing him apart as well as a lot of other people. I don’t have problems with him for trying to figure out who he is and where he belongs, I have problems with the way that he is hurting people, I think. I don’t dislike him. I just don’t always like him, if you know what I mean. But Ford? Yeah, love him.
I hated Ava and I loved it when Bryce finally told her off. She totally deserved it, and she might have deserved even more than what he said.
I loved the idea of Darth watching out for everyone from above. It’s really awesome, and he really wouldn’t want to leave Shiloh alone.
OK, that’s all for this one today. Go check out the whole series, it’s in KU, and find out why I love Shiloh and why I think Ford is teh awesome. Happy reading!
