Well that was abrupt...

Isle of Wishes - Sue  Brown

'Isle of Wishes' is the second book in the 'Isle of Wight' series and takes place a couple of years after the first one. Sam and Liam are getting closer to their wedding date but we're still not there quite yet, thank you immigration so good of you to keep these two men apart. If these was a m/f couple things would not have been quite so difficult for them and this unfortunately is reflective of the real world. As much as I don't like that for the purposes of this story it did help to build credibility in Sam & Liam's relationship.


Much to Sam's dismay Liam has gone back to the US one last time to wrap up his life there before returning to England where he and Sam will finally begin their life together. Sam fails to hear from Liam at the designated time and after a couple of days  pass he calls on his younger brother Paul, who is a police officer in London. Paul and Sam leave for the states to track down Sam's errant fiance. So there you have the background for how Paul ends up in the US where he meets Olaf Skandik and yes another member of the Owens family falls in love with a bloody Yank (lmao). 


Interestingly enough I found this relationship a little more believable and I like these two a bit more their dynamics are different. Olaf is also a police officer and spends a good deal of his time reminding Paul that he has not authority in the US and he needs to not hinder the investigation this is code talk for he spends a good deal of his time beating he head against a brick wall.


Olaf is deeply in the closet, if his hand is on a door it's the one to Narnia. Paul is bisexual and has a reputation for nailing pretty much anything that walks on two legs. These two men do a love waltz around each other for a couple of days before Paul finally takes matters (meaning Olaf) into his hands and then all bets are off. Olaf doesn't want to say good-bye to Paul when it comes time for him to leave but Paul has a job to return to...

 ..and Olaf knows what he's going to do...yep that's where the road ends folks...bang brick wall or onto book #3 'The Isle of Waves'.
