Whiskey Dreams, On the Rocks is the touching first tale in the On the Rocks M/M contemporary romance series. If you like captivating characters, sweet attractions, and tortured choices, then you’ll adore Sam E. Kraemer’s delicious escape.
I’ve never read a book by this author, but I liked the blurb so I figured I’d give it a try. Sorry to say, I was pretty disappointed. Judging by the ratings of his other books, I am in the minority. But, I have reasons.
When we first meet Kelso, he is pulling up to his family’s ranch for the first time in years after being rejected for being gay. So, totally show up as a surprise! His twin sister is a bitch and his parents are nasty to him. Cut right to the next morning when he is leaving. So that’s all we get of that.
Off he goes to see his older brother who was never great to him, but not nasty. And at least this time he was invited. His brother had a reason for inviting him, which I get, but also how about just trying to be a good brother?
At the beginning of the book, his brother Leo treats his best friend with kid gloves, but then treats him like an equal.
I just felt no connection to any of the characters at all. Inserting most of the back story into why the characters are who they are just didn’t work for me. And until the end, I didn’t feel any connection between Tanner and Kelso.
The writing and dialogue were very stiff and formal and it was just kind of boring.
