New Release Book Review: Burning Season by Rachel Ember

4.5⭐⭐⭐⭐🌠 Another great book in the Wild Ones series. This one is set 50 odd years before the first two and introduces Dylan and Bo. I adored both of these young men, their affection towards each other was so genuine and added to their attraction to each other.

My heart broke for Dylan from the start, living a lie for the sake of others isn’t living at all and Dylan believes that’s what he needs to do to be accepted by his family and community. 1970s were a different time and I can only imagine how hard it was for a gay man, or woman to be ‘out’. I really enjoyed the growing relationsbetween Dylan and Bo, and how this completely changed the way Dylan saw his life playing out.

Dylan’s family is a complex dynamic of characters, ruled over by his grandfather who owns the family farm. Dylan has only ever thought of his life being on that farm, but with the new feelings he’s experiencing he may need to take another look at where his future lays.

The cast of supporting characters add many different aspects to this story, from Dylan’s best friend Glen, to Glen’s father’s friend Art, and Dylan’s own family members.

I really enjoyed this story, there were a few times I got a deep boding feeling and wasn’t sure what was going to happen, but luckily it all leads to a happy ending. It also ends with an opening into the next book and one of the side characters from the first two books, I can’t wait!

Thanks to the author for a digital copy in return for an honest review.
