Redonk Nutshell: Six months afterÂ Shivaree, Shane, Gabriel & Natalie reunite and reassess their relationship.
I enjoyed Cara McKenna’s romp, Shivaree. You can imagine my delight when I realized GetawayÂ was a follow-up. Â Oh yeeeeaaaaah.
Six months after Natalie broke down in the bayou in Louisiana, she’s back in Rochester and attempting to re-establish herself in a routine. Â When Shane shows up at her door, she’s pleasantly surprised. Â Shane is more confused than ever, and he’s desperate to make a clean break from his obsession with his lover, Gabriel. Â He’s hoping time with Natalie will clean the slate. Â What he doesn’t count on is Gabriel following him.
GetawayÂ is Shane’s story, more or less, and his attempt to figure out what the heck it is that he wants. Â He doesn’t consider himself to be gay, but his love for Gabriel is undeniable. Â He’s convinced Gabriel doesn’t share these feelings, so when the man himself comes charging after him, he’s stunned. Â And even more confused. Â Natalie helps them figure out what, exactly, they are to each other.
GetawayÂ is a lovely conclusion to an intense trilogy. Â I haven’t read the first, though I imagine someday I will. Â We get something of a HEA in this story, though I’ll forewarn you it’s not exactly what you’d be expecting. Â And because this is Cara McKenna, it’s handled beautifully.
