(The Republic #2)
Publication date: September 7th 2016
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance
On the outside, Mayr seems to have it all: a successful career as Head of the Guard for a prominent politician, family and friends who adore him, and the attention of beautiful women. But appearances are a good way to bury secrets, including the fact that while Mayr is a romantic at heart, searching for the one person to share his life with, his lovers keep leaving him.
When his last girlfriend takes him back and suggests an intimate night with Tash, one of her lovers, Mayr reluctantly agrees. The last thing he expects is to fall hard for Tash, who is nothing like Mayr’s previous lovers—and about to undertake the Uldana Trials. If Tash fails, he’ll likely die. If he succeeds, he must give up Mayr, and become the latest to leave Mayr standing alone with a broken heart.
This is book two in The Republic Series, but can be read as a standalone. This story is obviously set in the same world as book one, but a completely different couple complete with HEA. This book centers on Mayr the Head of the Guard for a prominent family. Mayr is lovely man, handsome, loyal, but has been very badly treated by his previous Partners. He comes from a close nit family, all he ever wanted was someone to love and complete him.
” The truth is that nothing worth having is ever easy, and all the best things in life are the result of pain. In the end, that’s what makes the good things go very great, and that’s what makes it all worth the struggle.”
I think that describes this beautiful love story. At its heart is about finding that one person that completes you. Mayr meets Tash through one of his exes who he meets for a threesome. Tash is a priest, who is getting ready to become an Uldana Priest which unfortunately will mean he will be unable to have close sexual relationship with anyone.
Even though they decide to keep everything casual, which would be okay if only both men didn’t feel this strong connection neither one expected. I not saying anymore except it pulled on my heartstrings. I have read this authors work before and he knows how to pull you into the different worlds he creates and spits me out after I have been put through emotional ringer. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a beautiful but heartbreaking love story in a fantasy setting.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Archer Kay Leah was raised in Canada, growing up in a port town at a time when it was starting to become more diverse, both visibly and vocally. Combined with the variety of interests found in Archer’s family and the never-ending need to be creative, this diversity inspired a love for toying with characters and their relationships, exploring new experiences and difficult situations.
Archer most enjoys writing speculative fiction and is engaged in a very particular love affair with fantasy, especially when it is dark and emotionally charged. When not reading and writing for work or play, Archer is a geek with too many hobbies and keeps busy with other creative endeavors, a music addiction, and whatever else comes along. Archer lives in London, Ontario with a same-sex partner and their cat.
