A Barb the Zany Old Lady Review: On the Same Page (Secrets #4) by KC Wells and Parker Williams

Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5

My favorite book in the Secrets series so far, this one features Heath Snow, a bookshop owner who is fascinated by one a book in which the master takes his boy to task. Single, sweet, kind, Heath figures he’ll spend his life alone with only his books to take to bed. And then late one night, a new customer shows up who will change his life. Xavier is tall, dark, muscular, a force to be reckoned with, and when he spots the book the handsome shop owner is reading, it gives him enough incentive to explore the spark between them.

I love the way the authors presented Heath—he’s strong and smart and willing to compromise. He’s also not afraid to explore his submissive side or to ask questions about the BDSM lifestyle. There’s also a spark in him that caught my attention and endeared him to me early in the story. Xavier was the perfect Dom as he guided Heath’s early steps in the world of D/s. I liked him, though his workaholism was a bit too on point and difficult to accept. As we learn later in the story, his job jeopardizes all things in his life, including his ties to Heath.

The couple gelled so well I couldn’t imagine what could break them up, but  when it happened, it made sense, and then a surprising, but believable, solution to the imminent disaster resolved the issue and allowed Xavier to apologize and grovel to win Heath back (as he well should!).

All together it’s a really nice story that hit all my feels and left a smile on my face. Heath is one of those characters who will stick with me (like Peter in Trusting Thomas) for a long time to come. I highly recommend this to lovers of MM romance, especially those who like a little kink in their stories.

The cover by Reese Dante features the two MCs: Heath with his arms around Xavier from behind. Done in dark tones, their poignant pose sets the stage for the delicious story within.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
