Sequel to Rain and Whiskey

The weather in the Florida swamps is looking a little rocky for retired football player, Galen, his laid-back lover, Shane, and their gator, Vic.

When Galen buys into a football team, promoting and wheeling and dealing are the name of the game. He’s so busy he hardly gets to see Shane anymore, which means a lot of lonely naps on the couch.

Shane is tied up with managing the bar, covering for unreliable bartenders, and serving drinks to good-time party boys. Used to be Galen couldn’t get enough of him. Now he can hardly pry Galen away from the phone, and Shane starts to wonder where he stands in Galen’s life. Will things ever be the way they were?

When Galen starts to forget their dates, the pressure builds, jealousy and hurt swirling into a tropical storm. Galen and Shane need to seek shelter in each other before everything they’ve built is washed away.

Now I love me some Shane and Galen, that’s true.  And goodness knows that sometimes in the swamps, there isn’t much to do but kick back, drink, have tons of sex and love on each other.  But oh my is there a ton of loving, sex, sex, sex in Tropical Depression.   I’m surprised that alligator didn’t come out of the pool and yell ‘enough, boys, take a breather’ at them.

And what I’m missing is those plot bits that fit so nicely in between the hot sex.  These two men are so sweet with each other, the dialogs and conversation so great, especially when Momma comes into it, and then a puppy called Goober, plus there an alligator in a pool and a bar with regulars.  So much ‘stuff’ to fill with plot threads that I crave that when I get more sex between the guys, well, it started to get a little old by the end. Then each starts to realize what the real issues were that have been getting between them.  Len working too long at a job he really wasn’t happy doing, Shane as well being a manager when he’s happiest as a bartender and all the time they just want to spend time at the Bait Shop and with each other.  Sweet, sappy, and why we love their story. And them of course.

Followed by more sex.

The swamps, the locals and this couple and the way B.A. Tortuga puts her touch on all three is why I read this series.  This was a nice addition to it but the first was terrific.  I can’t wait for the next one to roll out.  Knowing this couple, trouble is on the way.

Cover Artist: Alexandria Corza.  Cover works for the setting. I think I’m over the whole shirtless torso thing by now.
