I have been on a quest lately to explore some new genres and try new to me authors. That is why Passage caught my attention. It’s an unusual story with very unusual and challenging characters.

Born with a gift for sensing plants that leaves him tied to his citrus farm, Andy has despaired of having anything but an isolated existence with his overbearing mother. When handsome Enrique arrives looking for work, Andy dares to dream of a different, happier life—one which includes Enrique in his bed.
Half-incubus Enrique doesn’t expect to fall for the lonely and virginal Andy. Neither does he intend to submit to Andy’s repeated attempts at seduction, but Andy’s fine young body proves so irresistible that Enrique gives him a birthday present neither will forget.
When hunters from Enrique’s past lay waste to the farm, leaving Andy critically ill, Enrique must find a means to help and heal him which comes in the form of Andy’s long-lost family. But can Andy accept Enrique’s terrible secrets and can they–and their love–survive the monsters set on tearing Enrique and his life apart?
If I had to pick one word to describe this book it would be “unique” because I don’t think that I have ever read anything quite like it. This book features characters (and ideas) from other books by this author. Although this book is not sold as part of a series, it is worthwhile knowing this information when starting the journey.
The characters in this story suffer a lot. I am not going to say what they suffer from, I want to keep it simple, but they are traumatized in many different ways. I thought that most of the book read like a hurt/comfort story, and I did enjoy that about it. I also enjoyed the way the author brought paranormal and fantasy elements into the story and blended it all together with a contemporary feel. The characters are strange, and I wanted to understand them better as I was getting to know them. It’s important to understand that these characters are not sweet and simple, and neither are their relationships. This is not a sweet love story, but it does have passion and heart.
I had never read anything by Evey Brett. When I read a new to me author I like to do a bit of research. I usually look online to see what else has been written, and if she or he uses any other names to write under. This just helps me keep things organized a bit, and feeds my quirky need to learn new stuff. Evey Brett also writes under the names Nica Berry and Traci Castleberry, and her works range from the erotic to the paranormal, with romance in the LGBT spectrum. Although this is the only book that I have ever read of hers, I would be interested to read more because she is a unique storyteller.
If you are looking to read an unusual story that features paranormal beings like an incubus and a plant empath, both of whom have been through hell and struggle to find love, you should take a look at this story. It is very different and rather entertaining.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
