In the mountains of New Mexico lives a group of boys who are inseparable. That is until they grow up and one of them leaves the rez to fulfill his dream.
One of the boys misses him more than the others. A love that started as children grew with him and when Angel Quintana left New Mexico, Garcia Blacksnake had to occupy his time until the love of his life returned. Angel came back when tragedy struck, with secrets he does not want this old friends to know. Secrets about the life he lived as his dreams came true, turning to nightmares he could not run away from.
Can childhood friends help save him from a sadistic man who holds Angel’s dream in his hand? Can Garcia’s love help him to trust himself and others again?
Blurb: In the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico, lives a man who has secrets. Levi Kape watches people at a bar nightly, writing things in his notebook and trying to blend in with the locals. His secrets keep him from getting close to anyone until Bobby Dawes comes off the road after a long haul in his 18-wheeler. After getting to know Bobby, he realizes he’d never been close to anyone. That was about to change.
Levi can’t settle down and not because he doesn’t want to, but because it could endanger his life. Bobby is a gentle, loving and strong man who doesn’t do commitment. He’s also a man who Levi wants more than anything, including his own safety.
Danger causes Levi to leave but he can’t forget the truck driver that drove into his life, changing everything. When Levi leaves, Bobby goes back onto the road, trying to forget the “Golden God” he’d fallen for, but with some help from friends with connections to dark people and places, Bobby finds his man and swears never to let him go again.
Can they save each other not only from the men who want Levi dead but from years of never seeking or finding the love they found in one another? Will the ultimate betrayal cost them the trust they need to make it work between them? Can Bobby save him, or be lost in a dark world alone
Review: This is the first book in this series and way to go! I was so happy to get to see some of my favorite characters from the Honkey Tonk Series. I loved to get to see more of Hunter, Ethan, and Carter.
Don’t worry if you haven’t read Honky Tonk because this stands alone perfectly. I do have to say I loved how Rain Carrington brought back a few of my favorites, but they didn’t upstage the new characters at all.
Road Runner is about Bobby and Levi. Bobby is an over the road truck-driver and grew up with most of the men in this town. Bobby goes to the Honky Tonk to see Carter Ethan and Hunter when he comes into town. He sees a cute guy that is new and Ethan goes into matchmaker mode.
Levi is new in town. He has a bit of crush on Hunter but knew he didn’t stand a chance with Ethan and Carter is straight. The minute he sees Bobby he is in lust. He likes the big brutish looking men. Levi has many secrets that could put Bobby and the town in danger.
I looooved this book. I never thought I’d like a character as much as Ethan, Rebel or Binks (the last two are from Rain’s other series Apishpa Creek) but I fell in love with Levi right off the bat. He may be subbish but he sure is a spitfire. I thought I liked big brutish guys too but I find myself drawn to smaller, subbish, yet bossy and smart characters. Levi is all of that and more.
I actually loved Bobby, too. He is everyone’s dream. Big, strong, handsome and a protector with a gentle heart.
I have to say the setting is a big part of this story and the way the author described things I could just envision all the environments, sights, sounds, and smells. I want to go to New Mexico now just to see if it’s this beautiful!
The story is intriguing as the characters. I thought I had it figured out pretty quick, but was I off the mark by a long shot. There were so many twists and turns. The ending shocked me a couple of times, but I was satisfied with the outcome. There lots of mystery and intrigue. The sex is also very hot. I rate it explicit since there is a lot of sex, but it’s not overly raunchy or anything like that. It’s very hot, and very sensual.
There is a little light BDSM, but no whipping or Masochism or anything like that and the D’s thing isn’t predominant. The relationship and sex between Levi and Bobby is absolutely steamy and sensual.
If you like big, strong brutish me with a gentle side, Knights in shining armor, brains winning over brawn, truck drivers, writers, interracial relationships, mystery and intrigue and some smoking hot mansex this is for you.
I also recommend you check out the Honky Tonk Series as well. You won’t be sorry! I can’t wait for the next one!
