Being a huge BTC fangirl, I’ve always wondered if Breck Christianson would get his own HEA, so when the blurb came out and he was and that his man was going to be Cres, I did a little fangirling squee and I have to say that Ms. James did a fabulous job at their second chance at love story!
Both Breck and Cres have gone through life changing situations and have been in limbo, living half lives while trying to figure out, or not, what their next steps should be and a surprise reunion suddenly has them both looking forward to something more than an isolated existence.
Breck hasn’t always been my favorite person in the BTC world, to say he was an asshat is being kind, but after his world imploded in on him, he came out of it a better man. He’s funny, still cocky, sexy as hell and charming. Also the man can cook, huge bonus. Cres was someone I hoped would get a book because I loved the glimpse we saw of him in Wyn and Mel’s book. He was also dealt a gut wrenching blow but hasn’t gotten over it. Instead he’s folded in on himself and needs a swift kick in the ass, which he ends up getting and we get to see the sweet, surprisingly sexy alpha man come out to play.
This is a novella so things move at a faster pace and thank god for that. From the moment they see each other for the first time in two years the sexual chemistry between them is electric and it only gets hotter as they spend more time together. But it isn’t only about the sex, though that’s what it starts out as, they finally get to know each other without worrying about what others will think about their sexual orientation and they both finally start to heal the wounds that eventually led them to each other.
Strung Up was a great addition to the Blacktop Cowboys world and I fell into full on adoration with Breck, which was very surprising, and Cres. I enjoyed catching up with Sutton, London, Wyn and Mel and can pretty much guess who the next couple may be. And as far as thunderstorms go, I’ve always loved them but now they just got even better!
