Love and survival—is it too much to ask?
Leo Park is an empath on the run. He’s escaped the secret research facility where he’s been held since he was six years old, but how can he survive without being captured? He has no money, all his ideas come from old movies, and he’s carrying his baby brother, smuggled out in a carton.
Cole Millard lives by his own rules in the Oregon woods, refusing to fear the world war that’s coming closer every day. Now his freedom is threatened by a naive 19-year-old with a baby in tow and a spooky way of knowing what Cole is feeling. But Leo is vulnerable and desperate. What’s a guy to do?
Shelter Me is a dystopian gay romance novel set in a not-too-distant future, with a hot backwoodsman, a desperate fugitive, a six-month-old baby, and the world on the brink of an apocalyptic war.
This is my first book by Megan Reddaway, but I’ll be sure to check out more of her work. I really enjoyed Shelter Me. The dystopia and pending apocalypse seemed so viable. I could totally picture the world they were living in, even if we don’t get a complete understanding for how it came to be this way.
I felt for poor Leo and Jae, the lives they had lived and the experiences they faced to get them where they were. I loved Cole and I loved that we got to see his perspective too. Seeing him go from suspicious to on the brothers’ side was great. The “I love you” was a little soon, but so much happens in such a short time that I could see how circumstance accelerated the feelings.
Although the book ends a little abruptly, it is billed as the first book in a series. I will definitely be reading book 2 when it comes out. If you like dystopia, romance, and suspense, this gives you all three. I definitely recommend giving it a chance.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
