Cade McKenna vowed to never have
feelings, as they were too much to bear; he has the scarred
face and the broken spirit to keep him from revealing his
feeling for another man ever again. The consequences of
acknowledging such prove it. Now a deputy in Quentin,
Montana, Cade lives a quiet life keeping himself busy doing
his job and doing it well, but also making sure not to get
to close to anyone. Ren Boone, the sheriffís son is a
threat to Cadeís plan to be left alone. Renís very presence
stirs feelings and emotions in Cade that he knows will only
cause him harm.
Renís life is quite complicated as
well, he knows heís gay but he canít find the courage to
tell his father whom he knows loves him more than anything.
His childhood crush on his best friend has led him to allow
his friend liberties that Ren knows is not a healthy
situation to be in, and now the feelings heís developing for
the new town deputy is sending him into a tailspin. On top
of all that, someone has been tampering with his work, an
ecological project that is dear to him, and to help find the
culprit Ren needs to work closely with Deputy Cade.
The two men begin a turbulent
relationship that has them both very unsure of where they
stand with the other.
ReneCade is sweet and
extremely emotional. Cade is a lost puppy I just want to
hold and protect, and Ren is a sweet young guy with a heart
of gold but heís not very good on rational thinking and
decision-making when it comes to matters of the heart. The
connection between these two is so strong, their sexual want
of each other is primal and the love between them is very
fragile, but so very sweet - when they finally admit to it.
What their relationship lacks is communication and trust.
Ren found it difficult to get Cade to open up to him and
Cade had trouble trusting Ren and with good reason. It was
obvious to those around them these two were meant to be, but
they had to realize it on their own. ReneCade
is an absorbing story. On top of the rollercoaster romance
of Cade and Ren, thereís also a mystery to solve that has a
very surprising outcome. Thereís Rissaís pursuit of Sheriff
Duke Boone that was not having the outcome Rissa wanted and
we canít forget the Hawkins brothers, Connor, Cain and
Caleb. One person who stood out for me aside from Cade and
Ren is Jasper. His appearance in ReneCade is
brief but he made such impression on me that I hope very
much to see him again in Cameron Daneís next sequel.
