Review of Bareback by Chris Owen

This was the first book I've read by this author and to say that I was pleasantly surprised is putting it mildly.  The author hooks the reader with some scorching sex at the beginning of the book and then slowly winds the tale of the relationship between Jake and Tor.  The author's ability to put the reader in the emotional place of the character is astounding.  As a reader, I laughed and cried with the characters as their relationship changed.  There are moments of great joy, great love, great loss, great understanding and great forgiveness.  If you are looking for a male/male romance with good characters, great writing, hot sex and a fabulous story, I highly recommend this book.
