Thank you to K. Webster and the team at Candi Kane PR for the advance reader copy of Callan’s Atlas, the third story in the Brigs Ferry Bay series. This story releases on May 12th!
I am so excited to be returning to the world of Brigs Ferry Bay! I really enjoyed the previous two stories and I was so happy to see that Kristi and Misty are going to continue to keep writing these epic and heart-wrenching M/M love stories.
Check out the Goodreads synopsis…
“From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a steamy and emotional age-gap MM romance!
When we moved from New York to Maine, life was supposed to get easier, not harder.
Change, for me, was difficult.
I became the target of terrible crimes that resulted in sending a once-beloved man of the community to prison for a very long time.
Now that I’m eighteen, I could move back to the Big Apple, but fear has me rooted in place.
I hate what that monster did to me.
Looks like I’m stuck here for good.
Brigs Ferry Bay’s unhappiest gay.
Each day, the darkness closes in around me more and more.
Black clothes. Black mood. Black thoughts. Black eyeliner.
The color in my life bled from me months ago and never came back.
Newest cop on the BFB police force.
Too hot. Too strong. Too old for me. Too…everything.
Atlas is a rebellious, bossy, mouthy brute who likes to provoke me.
Every encounter starts with heat and ends with an argument.
Color begins sneaking back into my world little by little.
He reminds me of who I once was and shows me who I’m meant to be.
I crave to leave this town once and for all.
But now that I’ve found the courage to do it, the arrogant jerk with a badge might find a way to keep me here and in his arms forever.
***Brigs Ferry Bay is a steamy MM romance series. While each book can be read as a standalone, in order to get the full experience, they’re best read in order. Enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, hurt comfort, age-gap romance, and so much more. Fall in love with the charming small-town gay romances of Brigs Ferry Bay…***”
Check out my more detailed thoughts below…
- Characters: Callan and Atlas are the main characters of this story. Callan is very very moody. When really he is a very broken boy, if you ever read the previous Brigs Ferry Bay books then you will know why. I loved how expressive Callan was, that he literally wears his mood on his sleeve. What I found fascinating is that no one in Callan’s life has gone about fixing him in the right way. Until Atlas. Poor Atlas is still sorta closeted, cause he has not come out to the important people in his life. Atlas is a war vet, now on the Brigs Ferry Bay police force. He is not really as broken as Callan, but Atlas sure has some deep-seated trauma associated with being run out of town because of his sexuality.
- Setting: Callan’s Atlas is set in Brigs Ferry Bay a small fictionalized Maine town. You will be familiar with it if you read either Sheriff’s Secret or Kian’s Focus. The characters from those novels make appearances especially Jax and Dante as Callan’s brother-in-law and brother respectively. I loved having awesome side characters around and it just makes me so excited for future stories. I do know the next title in the series is Fernando’s story and I am so excited to eventually be getting Zak’s story.
- Pacing: This story was paced quite well. There is a really big payoff, a reveal of sorts so I highly recommend reading the other Brigs Ferry Bay novels first.
- Romance: This romance really blossoms because Atlas is the first person to not handle Callan with kids’ gloves. Atlas really becomes the knight in shining armour for Callan. His quest is to rid the town of homophobes. This is a very intense love story. The scenes between these boys are not for the faint of heart. Be prepared for some of K. Webster’s classic very steamy, very taboo love scenes.
Callan’s Atlas receives four out of five stars.
