4.5 Kisses from Top 2 Bottom Reviews
Sold! is Etienne’s self-published book through Smashwords. This is an intense story and although the author doesn’t go into graphic detail, some of the content may be hard for some readers. Fans of this author will know how he can pull you into his stories from the beginning. Sold! is no different and I found myself staying up late into the night just to see how Winston’s and Clancey’s story would play out.
When the story starts, the two men are already a well-established couple who have joined the Peace Corp in order to get away from Winston’s father. The men have no idea what is in store for them and the author puts them, especially Winston, through some hellish times. There is a lot going on in this story and I like that the author can tell it without feeling the need to drag some aspects out. One of the things that made this such a great story was that the author tells it in alternating first person, allowing us to get the tale from the viewpoint of more than just the main characters.
While this story is a stand-alone many of the secondary characters in Sold! are from the author’s various series. I liked seeing everyone show up to help Winston and Clancey, and while I knew that things would eventually turn out well for the men, I was still surprised by who planned Winston’s capture.
I must admit that had it not been for reviewing books I am not sure I would have given Etienne a try. I am so glad that I was given that first story and now cannot get enough. If you have not yet tried anything by this author you really need to pick one up today.
