    Great read

    Raze is a wonderful M/M contemporary romance that features Felix and Huey (aka Dane). I really enjoy this author's writing style. Her characters feel so real and their troubles true. Most have flaws but they handle the angst in a loving mature way. Felix is younger but having help raise is younger siblings makes him feel like an old soul. Huey has had a rough time in life. He's dealt with the demons of addiction in his own special way. He doesn't think he has room in his life for a relationship but his draw to Felix can't be denied. Watching these two try to mesh their very different lives together was fun and emotional. I recommend this book to everyone.

    Unbelievably well done

    Roan Parrish has this incredible knack for just obliterating my heart and then putting it back together again in the form of an Epilogue. This book was no different. Both Dane and Felix were complicated characters with emotional trials to overcome. Dane was so afraid to let go of his routine, to let go of his stress, his words even, for fear of slipping back into his addiction. But it took Felix to get him to realize that the way he was living was just as much of an addiction. And Felix, who put everyone first his entire life, to the point where he had no direction. He had no idea what he wanted to do. But Dane was there. There were so many lines that were quotable from this story. So much of Roan Parrish's words are strung together in inspirational sentences that just scream depth and love. Her writing makes you feel like you've been transported to another world where the story is taking place all around you. It's a tangible thing and it's unbelievably well done. I can't say enough about the characters in this series. The way they overcome obstacles and support each other is compelling. Read the series. You'll be glad you did.

    Brilliant

    OMG! Huey's story was so worth the wait. This was a very character driven story and Huey and Felix were awesome characters. Felix has given his all for his siblings and Huey has focused all his energy on his sobriety, when they meet each is mystified that the other could be interested in them. I absolutely loved going with them on their journey to their happy ending. While this can be read as a stand alone reading the first two books really rounds out the character's world.

    RAZE

    Felix and Dane just mesh okay? I am not sure how well I can explain this in a review. Usually the older and larger man that is attracted to the younger, smaller man (Felix) usually don't seem realistic to me. Where is the attraction and how can it work? With these two you forget these differences because the characters are so well fleshed you see them as people with strong and intense personalities and those factors become secondary. This duo really were perfect for each other but there is a bit of a journey before Dane realizes this fact. Dane who goes by his nickname Huey owns a bar and has been sober from his life destroying addictions (drugs) for many years by owning the bar and not being tempted and keeping his life under strict control he feels he is able to exist. Meeting Felix during a karaoke night at his bar puts his ordered life in tail spin. I won't go over the details of the how and why they got together as it will be fun for you to discover this on your own. The bottom line is what is more important just merely existing or taking a chance and truly living? This is the second book I have had the distinct pleasure of reading from this talented writer and I am waiting for more. Excellent story line and very down to earth and amazing characters. Happy reading!

    Stunning

    In a series where each of the characters has touched me so deeply, I have to say Roan Parrish has outdone herself with Raze. Parrish gets into the very essence of these incredible men, building a story for each of them and exploring what makes them tick. Whether it’s overcoming addiction or finding what sparks your passion, for the couples from the Riven series, simply surviving isn’t enough. My favorite part of a Roan Parrish novel is how thoroughly she explores her characters. Parish gets deep into the very psyche of these men, and finds the things that make them real. Defeating obstacles, healing past wounds, and finding a way to move forward in a positive way are some issues that apply to all of us. Being able to actually relate to these guys makes a Roan Parrish novel so special. Huey’s story is heartbreaking, but empowering as well. Coming off a life completely ruled by drug use, every moment for an addict is about just surviving. Huey has created coping mechanisms as well a complex schedule to fill his days and avoid relapse. He’s taken back control, unfortunately there’s no time or space left for having a meaningful life. Freed from the responsibilities of caring for his family, Felix is finally in a position to make a life for himself. Acting on his initial attraction to Huey, Felix actively pursues the older man. The scene where he’s asking Huey on a date is completely adorable, and is a glimpse at some of the fire that’s inside him. It’s clear that with a bit of attention and encouragement, Felix will flourish. I fell in love with these two remarkable guys and it’s extremely satisfying to watch them work it all out. Although they’ve got some serious baggage, the angst isn’t overwhelming. I found the positive message Ms. Parrish’s continually weaves throughout Raze to be very uplifting, and the romance between Huey and Felix is toe-curlingly delicious. Looking ahead, I’d love to get Riven guitarist Coco Swift’s story. Between her romance with Felix’s sister Sophie and the challenge of keeping the band together after Theo’s retirement, this is one strong woman! Whatever story Roan Parrish chooses to tell next in this standalone series, I know it’s going to be a good one.
