Earth and Sky - Zahra Owens 1 1/2 Hearts

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews


You know I read the first book [b:Clouds and Rain|10372393|Clouds and Rain|Zahra Owens|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1296667354s/10372393.jpg|15275763] and loved it, so I was looking forward to this one as well but My God what were you thinking casting Grant as Hunter’s love interest.

This book seems to run parallel to [b:Clouds and Rain|10372393|Clouds and Rain|Zahra Owens|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1296667354s/10372393.jpg|15275763] but there are mistakes during the times that the books coincide and that is really annoying, Grant is the big baddie in [b:Clouds and Rain|10372393|Clouds and Rain|Zahra Owens|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1296667354s/10372393.jpg|15275763], he was Gable’s lover who ran out on him when Gable was injured, he also slept with anything that didn’t move fast enough and oh so helpfully slept with a married woman because she wanted a baby.

In this book he is a misunderstood generous man who made a few mistakes, never cheated on Gable, try’s to blame Gable for what happened between them and he’s just helping his friends out when he sleeps with them to get them pregnant behind their husbands backs. I can’t stand this character because he has no redeemable qualities no matter how I look at it.

Now Hunter on the other hand is a great character, he has hidden his ‘gay’ side from everyone even himself, he finds himself attracted to one of the hands, acts on it and then needs to come to terms with what they had done. He then explores his feelings and continues to act on it while still trying to deny that he is gay. He also has to deal with his family’s dramatics and a revelation from his ex-girlfriend.

I disliked Callie and the mother of Grant’s children just on principle, as both these women find it acceptable to sleep with another man behind their husbands backs just to get pregnant.

This book would have been a lot better if Grant was not in it and Hunter actually met a man he deserved and not the sleaze that is Grant.

My honest opinion is this… stick with [b:Clouds and Rain|10372393|Clouds and Rain|Zahra Owens|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1296667354s/10372393.jpg|15275763] because honestly any decent human being will be disgusted with some of the characters morals in this one.
