Author Name & Publisher: Thianna Durston (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: May 23rd, 2016 – 200 Pages
Eighteen-year-old Nephi Rafe Norton goes to Falcon Pointe University to find himself. Away from his conservative family, he hopes to discover if his attraction to men is the real deal. Encouraged to be someone a little different, he starts using his middle name. “Rafe” quickly makes friends, some of whom practice loving physical discipline, and lives it up—until midterms hit and he realizes he’s flunking statistics class.
When Scotland native Éigneachán Jackson Levlin offers to help, Rafe is eager to accept—not only because Levlin is a psychologist, but also because he’s out and proud and hot as hell.
As their relationship heats up, Rafe decides to spend one last Christmas with his family before he tells them. When his little sister outs him to his siblings, they turn out to be fully supportive, and he takes heart—until he introduces Levlin to his father, who brutally dismisses both of them. Now Rafe must come to peace with his father’s rejection or risk losing Levlin—and all that he has become at Falcon Pointe—forever.
This is third book in this series and it was great. This was clearly a book about finding yourself and the struggles that go with coming out to your family. Rafe was struggling with one of his classes and meets an older man that helps him out and they fall in love. This man, Levlin was also able to help Rafe out with his coming out to his family. Levlin clearly expatiated that he was in it their relationship for the long haul. At first Rafe seemed to be mature beyond his years but also very inexperienced. Because of all this I loved how Levlin took things slow and never pushed Rafe anymore then he could handle. The author clear had an handle on the story and I can’t wait to read the next in the series.

And who is she to deny those pesky *cough* lovely little creatures? She lives in the Pacific Northwest, though her heart belongs elsewhere. In the meantime, until she can return to the place she calls home, she happily lives in a city that still thinks it’s a small town. Thankfully, it has given her muse lots of amusing places to start a story.
