    Heat-pounding suspense and a wonderful love story!

    This is the first book I've read by Sidney Bell and it took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride that I didn't want to end. I started reading this in the early morning and barely stopped for anything all day until I finished it. If you like books with complicated, meaty plots you need to read this book. At 108,000 words/448 pages this is a story that you can easily lose yourself in. There was so much going on in (but not too much) that I kept wanting to read faster and faster so I could find out how it would all end and yet I didn't want it to be over. More than once my heart was pounding and I was screaming internally no, no, no! While this story was intensely suspenseful it was also tender in places and a very poignant love story. Church has so much going against him but Miller can see beyond all of the darkness to the man that Church really wants to be. Now if Miller can just get rid of the voices that tell him it's wrong to love another man… I don't know how many books are planned for this series but there are two supporting characters that I sincerely hope get books of their own. This book doesn't have a cliffhanger as the story for Church and Miller has an HEA but not every question, surrounding a lot of the suspense, is answered and I can't wait to read more books in this series. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.

    Loose Cannon was an emotionally taxing book for me. Clearly it resonated because I felt EVERYTHING, but not in a way I anticipated. This was very much along the lines of a hurt-comfort book, but kicked up a notch. The writing is fantastic. It’s hard to believe it’s only the author’s second release. The plot flows, the characters are flushed out and developed, the conflicts believable, and the resolutions satisfying. The pacing was steady. I wouldn’t consider this a fast read, but I don’t think I’d consider it heavy either. It was so emotionally involved I couldn’t rush through it and had to have time to process. Yet, it proved to be hard to step away for very long. This book has a lot of moving parts to track, including secondary characters who play important roles and subplots that influence the relationship and character development. At first these seemed a bit overwhelming, but the author does a good job tying things in consistently so they weren’t superfluous details. That said, some of the past memories and interconnections are held back from the reader. I found this both frustrating and effective. I’m not a huge fan of secrets- whether they’re kept from the characters or reader- but it did keep me engaged and trying to connect the dots. In many ways this left me grasping to understand how things fit together much in the same way Church was. Filled with flawed but likable characters whom I found interesting and complex, Loose Cannon had my full attention from start to finish. While some of the behavior and responses didn’t sit well with me, Miss Bell does a stellar job explaining the emotions fueling those moments. Even when I was frustrated, I couldn’t be irritated because I understood. This was especially true when it came to Miller’s feelings for Church. The hot and cold would typically turn me off, but the author took the time to explain all the emotions Miller experienced. So much so that I was pushed to the point of being uncomfortable with the disquiet in his brain. I don’t think I’ve ever read a coming-out romance that explained those emotions quite so well. Loose Cannon certainly made an impact on me and the secondary characters were so well developed that I’m eagerly anticipating the next book. If you’re a fan of the emotional journeys that leave you feeling wrung out and characters overcoming their pasts, this is a must read. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
