Sense of Place by NR Walker ~ Review by Brandilyn

Very early in my M/M fiction education, I was recommended a little book by the name of Point of No Return by NR Walker.  It was a 5 star read for me that I have recommended time and again.  Since then NR Walker has become an auto-buy for me.  Her latest series, Thomas Elkin, is a favorite of mine.  I literally bought book 2, Clarity of Lines, the minute it was available from the publisher.  I recently had the privilege of reviewing an advanced copy of the 3rd and final installment, Sense of Place.

Author: NR Walker

Rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the publisher

Designing homes is easy. Finding home is something else entirely.

Thomas Elkin and Cooper Jones finally have the support of their families together, and their love grows stronger every day. Now living together, they thought nothing could stand in their way.

But there are outside influences trying to pull them apart.
Cooper encounters a man, closer to his age and with connections high up the property development chain. Tom encounters discrimination and a hidden agenda from a fellow senior-partner.

No matter what the world throws at them, Tom and Cooper are the real deal. Age differences aside, Tom has finally found his sense of place. His one true center, his home.

My View

So… I have already told you that I love this series.  If you haven’t read my review of Clarity of Lines (i.e. book 2), I highly recommend it. I don’t really know what to add to that.  Sense of Place is, sadly, the final installment in the Thomas Elkin series.  Tom and Cooper are one of my favorite literary couples… seriously.  I love Cooper, he is head strong and manipulative, and just so damn cute!  He knows what he wants and he goes after it.  His charm gets him anything he wants, and Tom is putty in his hands.  That isn’t to say that Tom doesn’t have his own backbone, but most of that backbone has been earned directly as a result of Cooper.  They are so perfect together.

SoP brings Tom and Cooper full circle.  They face a few obstacles with their respective work schedules, meddling co-workers, and handsy clients, but through it all they are strong together.  They don’t let others deter them from what they know is right for them.  They take on the world together and with humor.  I literally had a smile on my face from start to finish.  There was one little scene that had me a bit choked up, but you will have to read it to figure out which scene it was.

  1. I totally agree – this is one of the best series of books I’ve read in a long time. Loved Clarity of Lines and can’t wait for Sense of Place although I’m sad it will be the last 🙁
