Review: Loose Cannon (The Woodbury Boys #1) by Sidney Bell

Don't miss this brand-new male/male romance series from Sidney Bell, author of Bad Judgment

Released after five years in the system for assault, streetwise Edgar-Allen Church is ready to leave the past behind and finally look to his future. In need of a place to crash, he's leaning on Miller Quinn. A patient, solidly masculine pillar of strength and support, Miller has always been there for him—except in the one way Church has wanted the most.

With his staunchly conservative upbringing, Miller has been playing it straight his whole life. Now with Church so close again, it's getting harder to keep his denial intact. As they fumble their way back to friendship after so many years apart, Miller struggles to find the courage to accept who he really is. What he has with Church could be more than desire—it could be love. But it could also mean trouble.

Church's criminal connections are closing in on the both of them, and more than their hearts are at risk. This time, their very lives are on the line.

I almost didn’t pick this book up. It’s hard for a criminal who went to prison to be interesting to me. I don’t see there being any redeemable qualities there. I still liked Church though. I actually liked Church before Miller. To some degree Miller had to make more life changes than Church did. Miller had to shape up to be good enough for Church. I know that sounds crazy with Church being the parolee. Now Church isn’t one of those wrongfully jailed characters either. He did something bad, something hurtful and violent. Church was rightfully jailed and he struggles everyday with his problems but in the end he wants to be a better man.

So Church is released from Woodbury on the conditions that he finds a job and lives with a positive role model, a good upstanding citizen, Miller. They profess their love for one another and get their hearts and flowered filled happily ever after. Not so simple. Trouble finds Church and it’s a situation he couldn’t have prevented stumbling into. None the less it’s a crap situation that he doesn’t know how to get out of. The situation appears to follow him around and drag Miller into it as well. There are few things that Church truly wants in life and it looks like the world is against him in having those things.

Loose Cannon was a solid start to a new series. Sidney Bell is a new to me author. I am looking forward to reading more from this new author. If my suspicions are correct The Woodbury Boys series will center on the three young men that met there. Considering what Woodbury is they all three have something in their past that landed them in jail for more than a couple of nights. We got to see a little more of the criminal element with Ghost so perhaps he will be featured in the next book. Bell did a marvelous job of giving readers just enough character information about Tobias and Ghost to keep our interest piqued about where she can go with them.
