Maybe it’s all the cops in the news right now but there are so many things in this book that just made me angry. I don’t understand people at all sometimes. It’s a very good book but the issues that Kade touches on here are very prevalent in society. I grew up in a small southern town. I still live in a very small southern town. I do not, have not, nor will I ever understand racism. Where the World Ends deals with racism, between the local Native American tribe and the white people of the bordering town. The lies that stem from that hate have affected a sheriff deputy in the worse ways.
Deputy Will Cooper is new to Gray’s Harbor County, Washington. He takes his job seriously and has heeded the warnings from the other deputy’s regarding the tension with the local tribe. He still has to do his job though. It’s doing his job (well) that puts him and Colin Sharpe together. Colin is the reservation youth advocate. A trouble maker from the reservation causes some problems and Will doing his job sees that there is more going on than others have noticed. False allegations are made and it pits the tribe against the deputy.
The moment Colin sees the police cruiser he knows it must be the new deputy and that he has to be lost. Colin offers a friendly face and directions, knowing that no one else on the reservation will do the same. Having grown up on the reservation he has seen plenty of the tension between his people and the whites. He has witnessed it with his father and other members of the tribe counsel. Colin knows that Will is a good man. Will’s actions have proven that. Colin job has allowed him to know that the teens behind the trouble have caused problems in the past.
Colin and Will’s paths keep crossing. They are both attracted to the other. Will’s past and the events that are currently going on keep him from pursuing anything no matter how lonely he is in his new home. Colin knows nothing can develop between him and Will. After numerous run ins with each other they mutually decide to just get each other out of their systems. Once that happens this book gets hot quick. They see that what they have is too amazing for a onetime thing, yet deep in their hearts they know it will never work.
There are so many conflicts going on that Colin and Will have very little control over. They also have their problems that they have brought into their new relationship. Will has some major trust issues due to the reason he left his previous home/job/life. Colin has never given a relationship a try. He knows what type of man he is attracted to. He also knows what type (color) of man is not welcome with his father. All of this makes for a really good book.
