November Rain by Daisy Harris

A single bullet could take them both down.
Fire and Rain, Book 4
Detective Joe Klamath is used to guys falling on their backs at the arch of his commanding eyebrow. Yet he can’t seem to get a read on a cute, department-store sales guy. The vagrant who just walked in, though? He’s easy to read. He’s dangerous.
Joe’s training kicks in, but as he wrestles the gun-wielding man, he gets shot.
Raised in a conservative Ethiopian community, Elias Abraham keeps his natural attraction to men under wraps. But Joe’s heroism moves him to care for the man who saved his life. After all, Joe is hurt. Chances are slim he’ll demand the types of things boys in college always wanted. Sex acts Elias wasn’t—and possibly never will be—ready for.
Gradually, Joe’s easy confidence softens Elias’s resistance. But as Joe’s healing progresses too slowly for a man of action, and trouble brews in Elias’s family, Elias begins to wonder if he can handle the pressure. Because though he hasn’t given all of his body, he’s already given all of his heart.
Warning: Contains a sexy-as-hell cop, a shy virgin fifteen years younger, and an extremely intimate sponge bath. Underpants optional.

When I started this book, I didn’t realize that there were other books before it, I just quickly got it because I have read others by this author in the past and really enjoyed them. From what I can tell though, the other books do have different characters, so I didn’t feel too lost when I was reading the story.

With that being said, I did feel slightly confused because the book started out with a bang, and I had the feeling that I was missing something from the pasts of the characters.  I didn’t let that stop me though, I continued reading the story and I ended up really enjoying it.  This isn’t my normal read when it comes to the M/M genre, but I was very glad that I read it because I realized that I did in fact enjoy it.

I really liked how the story was one that was very packed with suspense and details that kept me very interested as to what was going to happen next.  I liked the attention that Ms. Harris gave to Elias in almost everything about him. I loved how innocent he was, and how she managed to keep him that way throughout the story.  I was expecting him to lose his innocence very quickly, but thankfully that was not the case.

I also liked how Joe’s character was.  While he seemed very mean and tough on the outside, once you got to know him, you learn how he really is.  There was a really good balance when it came to the characters that kept it interesting between them.

Overall, I would say that if you enjoy reading this genre, then you should give this book a chance!
